We headed up to Michigan for the 4th of July weekend, and I thought I'd share the makeup bag I packed. I'm not sure why I packed a makeup bag even, since most often I wear no makeup when traveling or spending time with family, which becomes even more true in the summertime. LOL! Perhaps this has helped me though, as this is probably the smallest makeup bag I've packed in quite some time!
For face, I've brought along the Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer, a much hyped primer that I've fallen in love with again. It's light and undetectable on the skin, yet helps to even everything out a bit. I've found that it helps my foundation appear more even, and last longer too, though I have yet to try it with the W3LL People Narcissist Foundation Stick, which I recently purchased in Shade #5.
For eyes, a summer weekend requires a good ol' shadow stick, and I've selected Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Plum, a lovely purple that is so dark it is nearly brown. My Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Brow Pencil* is totally a love lately, and I've decided not to leave home without it!
You might have heard my love for sheer, hydrating lipsticks (here), and I've selected the new to me cult favorite, Dior Addict Lip Glow for this weekend. I'm loving the color it develops and the formula so far! And last but not least, I just had to bring my favorite bronzer of late, the Hourglass Ambient Bronzer!
... And it is day two and I still have yet to wear a spot of makeup. But hey, it's the thought that counts, right?
What are your weekend makeup bag essentials? Are you good at paring down the bag? I'd love to know! :)
