Beauty Bag: Humidity Proof Looks- July 9th

This is my makeup bag this week- humidity friendly wares

This week I've been toting a light makeup bag due to the 80 degree temps and high humidity. Instead of my face melting at its usual 12pm schedule, it melts at 8:30am on my way out to work!
To combat the icky- stickies of giving mayjah face, I recently added these cute mint-scented hand and face wipes to the mix. Here are a list of my go-to's for this week!

-I heart Ice Cream Mini wet wipes- I picked these up at C.O Bigelow, too cute!

- Chanel Beige Nail Color- its a warm- neutral color that looks super natural. Perfect for those days when you want to have a nail art break.

- Jack Black Vanilla Mint Intense Therapy lip balm SPF 25- yes, this is for dudes, however, this is also the best lip moisturizer and smoother for when your lips feel like sand paper on a hot day. This here takes care of your lips like no other.

-Marc Jacobs Heart Mirror- When I first moved to the city almost 4 years ago, this was my first purchase at the Marc Jacobs accessory store. It will be making future cameo appearances.

- YSL Touche Eclat in #6- One of the loves of my life! just a dot or two under my eyes and that is all.

- Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Riviera- This punchy tropical orange is all the kick that I need for summer, especially with a bare face. I use two swipes and the color lasts at least until lunch.

- Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Mascara in Black- I was introduced to this mascara by a fellow beauty enthusiast. This mascara makes you look awake and is easy to wipe off when winding down for the evening.

- Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy- This is my "no- look" go to lippy, meaning that I don't need a mirror to apply the balm and I know I will look ( and feel good).

- Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer (not pictured)- I try to wear spf every day, especially because my skin gets hyperpigmentation scars like crazy from blemishes. This moisturizer is light and smooth plus, I know that it is working on my skin while I'm taking care of business for the day.. I know because this is like my third bottle.

- Makeup bag is from Forever 21!

What's in your bag this week?

Thanks DeeDee! A review and swatch of Beige will be coming up tomorrow- seriously, its a staple!
The mascara is great, it hasn't run even though its not waterproof.
