August is here, babes! National Watermelon Day, celebrated on August 3, is a sweet holiday that gives us even more reasons to splurge on makeup products we've been craving. These bright and beautiful makeup products are perfect to celebrate the remaining rays as summer comes to a close. At the same time, we understand buying ONLY Sephora products isn't always possible for our wallets (as much as we wish it was). Keep reading for Social Sunday's juicy palette picks that fit into any budget!
1.) Makeup Revolution x Tammi Tropical Carnival Eyeshadow Palette
We loooove Makeup Revolution because you get good quality cosmetics for excellent prices. This little number is only $15, packed full with matte and shimmer shades to make any look a bold one. These colorful hues can take you from a sunny day at the boardwalk to a night out with your girls. With this many colors to choose from, the glam possibilities are endless!
2.) Nars Exposed Cheek Palette
If there's one thing Nars knows how to do, it's a bomb-ass cheek product. With six silky, blush selections, this palette certainly doesn't disappoint. Nars recommends applying it dry for second-skin color or wet for a high-impact glow. It's not cheap at $59 a pop, but if you're looking for high-quality, this brand is one of the best.
3.) Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette
Just looking at this palette makes us happy! With rich pigments and enough glitter to last all season long, Huda's got you covered. You can create both subtle and incredibly vivid looks with just the stroke of a brush. Don't forget to check out the other Neon Obsession palettes in pink and green, too. While you're at it, if you're looking for a flawless full coverage foundation, check out the Faux Filter liquid foundation. It'll give you a perfect blank canvas to work with!
4.) Ulta Sunset Skies Eyeshadow Palette
Sometimes amidst the glitz and glam of brands like Tarte, Urban Decay and Too Faced, we forget that Ulta has its own line of products as well. But they really are the OG, and they've got your back when it comes to necessities that get the job done and won't break the bank. The Sunset Skies palette is jam-packed with gorgeous shades, plus it's portable and will easily fit in travel makeup bags!
5.) Revlon Electric Shock Lip Powder Palette
Lip powder is the trend you never knew you needed. Achieve the ultimate shock effect with this palette (only $6.59, by the way) and amp up your everyday look, or save it for a special occasion. Either way, it's one heck of a statement! Revlon recommends using your finger to apply it to bare lips or using it on top of your go-to lipstick or gloss. Use it as eyeshadow for an even bolder look!
6.) Kat Von D Fetish Blush + Highlighter Palette
Kat Von D is no stranger to making bright and illustrious hues. These blushes and highlighters are silky smooth, guaranteed to give you a glow that'll last from A.M. to P.M.
