What's in My (Beauty) Bag – Summer Edition

What's in My (Beauty) Bag – Summer Edition

With summer in full swing, my beauty go-to routine is short and lightweight. This means: less makeup and more oil blotting sheets. 

I'm already oily as it is, but combining the sun and the Texas heat, my face is a recipe for disaster with makeup. So, I try my best to wear minimal makeup alongside with keeping my face look dewy and not oily. 
The more I got into skincare, the less makeup I wanted to use. 
I keep my routine quick and minimal for everything to fit into my trusty Glossier pink pouch!



Neogen's Sunscreen SPF 50+ 
Honestly, the best sunscreen I have and I will ever use. I've never met a sunscreen that moisturizes and melts into my skin so well.

The Face Shop Super White Sun Cream SPF 50+
I use this one for my neck, arms, and anywhere else my skin is exposed.

Glossier Mint & Cherry Balm Dotcom (Multi-use Balm)
I wouldn't be caught dead with chapped lips..

Glossier Boy Brow – Black (Brow Pomade)
This is my go to product whenever I want to look awake and refreshed. Brows mean everything to me when putting together a look. If I plan on wearing no makeup that day, I'll still put on some Boy Brow, regardless. 

Glossier Lash Slick – Black (Mascara)
I never thought I would add mascara into my routine since high school, but here I am. I'm in love with the formula so it's now a staple in my bag.

Glossier Generation G – Jam (Sheer Lipstick)
I always swipe this on anytime I need a pop of color, kind of like "I tried this morning" look.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiance Perfecting Pen Concealer – Luminous Ivory
Talk about a splurge.. This is one of the best concealers I've used! It's so sheer and buildable, I feel like it really hugs my skin and works with it, not against it. 

Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Highlighter & Balm Duo – Nude
For a glow that's subtle, yet dewy. 

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Lipgloss – Fenty Glow
The only lip gloss that's ever worked with me. I'm not a huge gloss girl, but I love this.

Lubricant Eye Drops
Compact Mirror
Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Blotting Paper
Holika Holika Hand Lotion



Once I have my AM Routine on, I first start with sunscreen. 
1. Neogen Sunscreen SPF 50+ 
2. YSL Pen Concealer
3. Glossier Boy Brow
4. PMG Labs Nude Highlighter
5. Glossier Lash Slick
6. For my lips, I either pair Cherry Balm Dotcom with Gen G Jam, apply only Gloss Bomb, or I pair Mint Balm Dotcom with a liquid lipstick for a more noticeable look.

As my summer routine is lighter, I strive for my skincare routine to ultimately be my makeup routine.
