1. Wet n Wild Photo Focus Matte Face Primer (found at Target $4.99)

Wet n Wild is serving up some fantastic products recently.  I am impressed!  If your makeup melts in the summer heat, try this matte primer.  Besides helping foundation last longer, this primer also fills pores, softens lines, and helps to keep skin looking matte.  Worn under your foundation, this is a real shine fighter.  (I am also LOVING their Photo Focus foundation.)

2.  e.l.f. Translucent Mattifying Powder (found at Target $3.00)

If primers aren’t your thing, try this mattifying powder.  It’s a great option for shine-fighting touch ups throughout the day.  Just toss it into your purse and you’re set!

3. e.l.f. 3-in-1 Waterproof Mascara (found at Target $4.00)

Nothing ruins a look quite like smudged or running mascara.  To avoid these disasters, try a waterproof mascara.  Whether you’re hot and sweaty or jumping into the pool to cool off, this mascara from elf will stay put.

4. Palmers Coconut Oil Body Cream (found at Target $4.99)

Between all the shaving and the sun exposure, summer can be rough on your skin.  To keep your skin from looking dull, there’s nothing better than coconut oil!  Treat your skin with this luxurious cream and bring out your summer glow.

5. Garnier Fructis Smoothing Treatment 1 Minute Hair Mask  (found at Target $4.49)

Chlorine, salt water, and sunshine can all suck the life out of your hair, leaving it looking dry and damaged.  Packed with fruit extracts, Garnier offers hair masks to target different needs like strengthening, repairing, color vibrancy, and smoothing.  No matter how busy your summer is, you can make time for Garnier’s 1 minute hair mask.

Summer is hot, but you don’t have to look like a hot mess. Shop these deals, and won’t lose your cool this summer.
