Despite the record heat, I’ve really enjoyed playing and wearing makeup this summer. I was getting so annoyed looking at all of my makeup being wasted by me not wearing it. I will admit that, for the most part, I was really focusing on my skincare. However, my makeup and I are getting close again and I even carry some of it with me everyday. It’s a great time to do a makeup bag spill and show all the makeup products that I’ve been keeping in my makeup bag this summer.

MAKEUP BAG SPILL: Shiny Lips
It’s hard to imagine wanting to put something sticky on your face when the weather is making everything else on you sticky. However, I can’t pass up a good shiny lip in the summer. So, lip glosses are a staple in my makeup bag in the summer. When paired with the right oversized glasses, they eliminate the need for more makeup. It’s magic!
MAKEUP BAG SPILL: Matte Face Powder
I have oily skin in the summer. In order to not look like a puddle of rainbow oil paints, I have to use matte face powders. I can’t praise this Maybelliene FIT powder enough. I can use a big fluffy brush with it to set my makeup in the morning. Also, if needed, I can touch up some areas where my makeup rubs off during the day. I wear glasses at work, which slowly removes the makeup on my nose. A couple of pats of this stuff and my nose is no longer giving Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer vibes.
MAKEUP BAG SPILL: Brow Pencil and Mascara
Finally, my brow pencil and mascara are the best support players in my life. I don’t need them often, but they help elevate my face so much. I keep the Benefit Goof Proof brow pencil in my makeup bag for those days when I need to define my brows, but didn’t have time before I left home. A quick swipe of the brush wand and then some swift swipes of the pencil to fill and define is all I need. I don’t have a particular mascara I keep in my makeup bag. For now, I’m using Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. It’s a 4-1 mascara that helps to lengthen, curl, volumize, and condition lashes. I must, this mascara is pretty legit. Plus, it comes in this cool purple faux snakeskin tube. Fab!
