Recently, I found myself in need of a larger cosmetics case to hold my makeup and beauty products and luckily found the loveliest one from Pottery Barn. It comes in this beautiful plum blossom print with mint-and-white striped lining on the inside. There are two big, transparent pouches that are more than big enough to hold everything I need.
My organization method is that I store most of my beauty items in this big case and use a smaller one to store just the few things I need when I'm on the go. The contents of the smaller bag change depending on the products I used on that particular day.
So, what's in my bag for the summer?
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber & Green Tea - I've been using either the rose or green tea Mario Badescu sprays forever now and will keep doing so! I use this as a refreshing spritz on hot days, to set my makeup, and to dampen my beauty blender.
Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Spray - This is a combination of volumizing spray, texturizing spray, and dry shampoo. It's all the products you need for your hair in one and it smells so good.
Glossier Haloscope in Quartz - I just tried this for the first time and love it! It creates a really subtle, pretty highlight.
Glossier Boy Brow in Blonde - I typically use Anastasia Brow Wiz but I've switched back to Boy Brow in order to have a bit of a messier brow look for summer.
Anastasia Glow Kit in Gleam - One of the best powder highlighting kits I've tried. There are four different shades for different looks.
Tarte In Bloom Palette - My go-to eye palette is perfect for summer. Sometimes, I just use one shade (Funny Girl) all over my lid for a no-makeup look.
L'Oreal True Match Powder - I actually use this drugstore powder as a bronzer. I simply bought it in a shade darker than my skintone.
Karl Lagerfeld Baked Blush - Not sure where I got this or if it's still available to buy anywhere, but it's such a good blush that doubles as a highlighter.
It Cosmetics Bye-Bye Under Eye Concealer - My mom introduced me to this amazing concealer. It's for under eyes but I use it on blemishes too. It's crazy how little goes a long way.
Diorshow Waterproof Mascara - Still haven't found the perfect mascara that doesn't smudge, but I really like Diorshow. The brush is really fat which creates thick lashes.
Sephora Collection Bright Future Skin Tint - Love this BB cream from Sephora Collection. It's very liquid-y and you can barely feel it on your skin.
Lavanila Lemon Vanilla Deodorant - This is my all-time favorite natural deodorant. It's long lasting and the scent is so good.
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask - I'm still obsessed with this mask. It's one of the best beauty products I've ever used and always makes my skin look so glowy!
Glossier Balm Dot Com in Coconut - A favorite that never gets old! The scent is perfectly tropical.
Nyx Lip Lingerie - This newish line from Nyx has lots of great nude shades and the product doesn't feel sticky on your lips. It's my new go-to lip product for summer.
Fresh Sugar Dream Advanced Lip Therapy - I love my Fresh lip products and this one is especially good because it just gives a very light tint, so it's impossible to make it look messy.
Sephora Collection #LipStories in First Class - The whole #LipStories collection is great. Very concentrated color and long-lasting formula. The color First Class is a really gorgeous red-orange.
