What’s in My Makeup Bag for Summer

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a “What’s in My Bag” post but I thought I’d make it a Summery “What’s In My Makeup Bag” post because all of the most fabulous and secret things live in our makeup bags. Well… nothing that lives in mine is really that secretly embarrassing unless you count the stain remover I take everywhere… and not because of my kids =\ … that one is totally for me.

Lately I’ve been using the Breakups to Makeup bag that I got for my last ipsy bag because it’s got all that fun-ness on the front. In addition to that it’s durable and just big enough to hold all the goods but still small enough that it keeps me from getting incredibly out of hand with what I carry around. It’s Summer, we don’t need that much, right?!

Makeup wise I always keep my powder handy along with a good brush to apply it with. I also always keep my brow pencil with me in the Summer. I don’t always like to mess around with a brow gel or stain (which is more waterproof) so I just touch up with the pencil as needed. It’s rare that I even need to go there, but just in case I always have one in my bag. Better to be safe than sorry…. it’s totally my luck I’d be that girl walking around with half an eye brow.

What beauty diva doesn’t have a ton of lip products? This is actually minimal for me to only find four in there. Generally I throw the one in I’m using that day without actually taking any more of them out. In the Summer I tend to stay away from lipstick colors because they get a little too melty. I’ll throw one in if I’m going to an evening event. While the color products change I always keep the Jack Black Lip Balm in there. I keep those every where… coats, bags, pockets, drawers…

Ricola® Herb Drops. This is another one of those products that I stash every where. In particular I always throw a few Ricola in my makeup bag just in case my throat gets dry from seasonal allergies or if I don’t have a drink on hand and there’s no time to stop. The Chrüterchraft (a blend of 10 natural herbs) also keeps me revitalized healthy!

An array of beauty tools. It’s my assortment of “maybe you’ll need this”. A stain removing pen… because I’m that girl. Tweezers because you know that you always find “that hair” while you’re in the natural light. A small nail file for snags or if there’s a break, a hair tie for helping to combat the heat, a comb with a mirror in side and finally a small perfume vial.. because sometimes I forget to spritz myself and when I wear perfume I feel a little more put together.

What products make it into your makeup bag for Summer?
