2016 Summer Essentials

This Summer,  I have not worn much makeup because I would rather just let my face detox (aka sweat) than breakout from all the makeup. I pretty much just keep it to a No-Makeup makeup look if I do need to put on makeup for an event or when I go out. I have never been excited to keep my beauty products to a minimum and this
agnés b. Red Leather Pouch
have been holding all my Summer essentials.

About the products

This is a soft leather zip case with the agnes b. rose print cotton lining.
9 x 6 inches - great to carry all the necessities!
I love this pouch, it can really fit all these products and more! The leather is very, very soft, and the cotton lining has such a cute print that gives it a nice feminine touch.

Onto the beauty products. . . It's not a lot but these are the ones I do carry with me to control the shine, give my lips some color and to keep me smelling good.

Smell Bent St.Tropez Dispenser

Notes of jasmine, fresh coconut, aloe vera and a light breeze over a vintage musk.
"It's a beach day in a bottle!"
I received this in one of my POPSUGAR Must Have boxes (here's the link!). I really do love this spray for the Summer. It really takes me back to Maui. Pretty much on days I wish I was in Maui, I just spray this on and at least smell like I was on vacation.

Marc Jacobs 
Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in Rebel Rebel
$28 | www.sephora.com

This is a blue-raspberry shimmery shade. It gives the lips a really hi-shine gloss and leaves a nice subtle color.
I use this a lot by itself because it's one of the most moisturizing, non-sticky lipgloss that I have used and could apply throughout the day with no mirror. It feels like I'm just applying a lip balm and doesn't have that tacky gloss feel to it. It looks great too when I apply it over a lipstick or a matte liquid lipstick.

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder in Beige
$16 $15.50 (www.asos.com)

This is a slim powder compact with mirror on one side that is very makeup bag friendly. It has very finely milled powder that blends easily on the skin. It's enriched with exotic fruit therapies to hydrate and rebalance the skin.

Bourjois Cosmetics is a brand a lot of the UK YouTube Beauty Vloggers highly recommend and use a lot. I have a post on a few more other Bourjois products that I purchased when I was in London, here.

This powder keeps the shine away and it's great to set my under eye concealer.

Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Powder Brush SPF50 in Medium
$64 | www.dermstore.com
Colorescience Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Powder Brush SPF 50 provides sheer coverage to even out your complexion and protect against the sun's harmful rays. Red seaweed extract, full of minerals, vitamins and amino acids, keep the skin healthy and radiant. 
I have been using the two powders alternately to touch-up throughout the day. On days I'm feeling lazy to put on makeup,  I would just apply concealer in needed areas and then this powder all over (blush and highlight on top to finish).

If I am just quickly running out for coffee or to dinner, I'd empty this bag and use this as my mini-clutch. My phone, lipgloss, cash + cards, ID and my keys can fit easily in here. The red color gives me a nice pop of color which is always a subtle way of amping up a neutral outfit!
