SHOP: "No-Makeup" Makeup Products Under P500
1. Issy & Co. Active Skin Tint SPF 35
Skin tints are perfect if you want to camouflage your dark spots without the heaviness of a traditional foundation. This one from Issy & Co. has a lightweight and breathable formula that's perfect for our eternally humid weather.
2. Strokes Brow Fixer
Keep your brow hairs in place by brushing a clear gel over them. This brow gel from Strokes is long-wearing and it doesn't make your hairs feel crunchy.
3. Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara
We love it when an affordable makeup product works just as well—if not better—than expensive ones. Maybelline's Hypercurl proves that by being smudge-proof and waterproof for at least 36 hours. It'll definitely last all throughout a full day of face-to-face classes!

Multipurpose products are a godsend for lazy days, TBH. The Milk Tint from GRWM Cosmetics can be used on the lids, cheeks, and lips for a low-key, monochromatic makeup look.
5. Careline Magic Serum Stain
Don't be deceived by this white lip balm from Careline. The Magic Serum Stain actually reacts to your lips when applied to give you a fun pink shade that's unique to you. It also leaves a pretty stain that is smudge-proof and long-lasting.
