It’s been dark and rainy almost all week here. When it’s this gloomy I find myself seeking out places with lots of bright overhead light, like Target and Walmart. So over the course of the week I’ve made several trips to their well-lit beauty sections and amassed these summer-ready cosmetics at drugstore prices. Let me share my top picks with you!
