My Makeup Bag & Me #1

 I originally wanted to do a post on what's in my purse, but I'm such a hoarder that the post would have turned into a short novel. So instead, I've decided to focus on what's in my makeup bag at the moment. The items I decide to tout around in my bag are always changing, based on the season as well as my favorite products at the time. Right now there are a lot of basic summer essentials that I can use to touch up on the go, as well as a handful of my favorite brushes.

To start off, I have my Icing Kabuki Brush which is my foundation brush of choice for my bases. Namely, I use either this brush or my hands to apply my lovely Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer, my base of choice (also the easiest one to do touch ups of, even though it's long-lasting to begin with!).

Next up I have my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush which is an great all-around brush that can be used for different parts of the face. I personally use it to touch up my concealer around my eyes as I find it gives a natural finish. While I have dozens hundreds of concealers in my possession, the one I've been carrying around recently is my By Terry Touche Veloutee because it's so easy to use on the go and perfect for highlighting and concealing underneath my eyes while still looking lightweight and natural.

The last makeup brush I carry around daily is my Bare Minerals Angled Face Brush which I use for applying my blush. The blush I've been carrying around recently is my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty which is a gorgeous red color that comes in a cute little compact with a great mirror. It's a great flush of color for day and night and, while it doesn't require many touch ups to begin with, it's easy to use on the go.

For my lips I always carry around my Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me, a great moisturizing lip balm that adds just a hint of color to your lips. I could go on and on about my love of this product (which I own in several colors), it is just such a great item to carry around and add a pop of color to your face. I also carry around my Bare Minerals Moxie Lip Gloss in Party Starter which is a pretty coral color, absolutely perfect for summer. I love the Bare Mineral's lip glosses for how moisturizing they are without being sticky, plus the colors are just extraordinary! I sometimes layer this over the Baby Lips for a little added color.

I rarely have eyeliner or eyeshadow in my everyday makeup bag (unless I'm going out somewhere at night) but I do always have my Loreal Miss Manga Mascara in case I need to touch up my lashes during the day. And finally, I always carry around my Dove Deodorant in Pomegrante in case I need to freshen up during the day. I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like a sweaty mess in this summer humidity so bringing my deodorant around is a must!

What do you guys carry around in your makeup bag?
