What's in My Makeup Bag - Part 2

With summer upon us, I have downsized what I carry in my makeup bag. My daily routine consists of minimal products, but I never skip my morning sunscreen. 

When I am in a rush, I still brush my brows in place, but carry this handy brow box from Urban Decay with me. It has a pair of mini tweezers, a spoolie, brush for application, two colors of brow powder and brow wax. This little box also has a mirror inside perfect for a quick touch up in the restroom before that morning meeting.

I like to carry a couple of lip colors, usually a traditional bullet lipstick and a sheer chubby pencil. Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Bosworth's Beauty has been a favorite of mine this summer. Tarte has always been a great pick for lips stains in a pencil format.Their LipSurgence glossy stains never disappoint.  These sticks come in a variety of hues with a twist up bottom.  The best part is a separate pencil sharpener is not needed, and the pigment fades evenly throughout the day.

For brushes, I usually carry a couple of blending brushes because they are multipurpose. On super hot days, if your makeup starts to crease a little, you can use one of these fluffy bristled brushes to give your powder a quick blend under your eyes so everything looks smooth again.  In a pinch, I may apply a little bit of my lip color as blush, and use the second blending brush to sweep a little color through the crease of my eye. Kelley Quan is a great choice for makeup brushes, or try the Real Techniques base shadow brush for an easy to find drugstore option. 

Finally, I always keep a Trim Black Salon Board (nail file) close at hand (no pun intended) because I just don't have time for regular manicures. My nails have really been splitting lately so keeping this in my bag helps me keep the edges smooth on the go.  These work on acrylic or natural fingernails and are easy to find at my local Target.   

What are you carrying in your makeup bag this summer?
