When summer comes around, our beauty products shift gears as much as our wardrobe does. Full coverage foundation goes sheer and we exchange one-note neutrals for poppy colors. It's important to work with the season when choosing products, not against it. Here are five fabulous summer beauty finds that will do just that, all for $30 or less.
