7 Beauty Products Under $50 to Cure Your Winter Blues

beauty products under 50 - Politics of Pretty

If you’ve got the winter blues like me, I highly recommend incorporating a pop of color in to your routine. Sapphire, teal and seafoam green keep popping up on my beauty vanity. From bright colored liner to mesmerizing shadow, I’ve rounded up seven beauty products  (all under $50) that will cure your winter blues.

Did you see my feature on BuzzFeed last month? In addition to sharing my no-makeup selfie, I also showcased my favorite skin product right now. Tula Revitalizing Eye Cream is my go-to when I wake up and before I go to bed. I think what I love most about it is how smooth my under eye feels, creating the perfect base for applying makeup. I’m also a fan of their Hydrating Day & Night Cream. It really is a must for the dry winter season.

This Pixi Beauty Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Aquamarine Dream has me completely infatuated with sapphire and aqua shades (plus, it’s only $12!). I may just have to try this on my next date night! If you’re not ready to dive in to blue eyeshadow but still want to experiment, try a thin line of Stila Smudge Sticks (waterproof eyeliner) in Turquoise and Mint Julep on your upper and lower lash line.

As much as I love wearing dark red and berry polish on my digits, Mark Mini Nail Lacquer in Teal Appeal (only $3.99!) has me daydreaming of my next tropical escape. Seriously, warm weather I miss you!

And when you’re ready to wash the city off your face… do it with Bliss Fabulous Makeup Melt gel-to-oil-cleanser (right now on sale on Sephora.com for $21). I experienced the weirdest sensation as I massaged this gel cleanser on my skin that eventually transformed into a lightweight cleansing oil.
