What I Brought With Me (Summer 2014)

Hi everyone, Sorry for another long break from blogging: I started my internship, and then the house I'm staying in lost power and then Internet for a few days. But now I'm back, so I'll be figuring out how to fit blogging into my schedule now that I have a 9-6 workday. I thought I'd show you guys what makeup I packed for my summer.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation in Natural Ivory (20) It goes on nicely, but unfortunately I couldn't deal with how much it dried out my skin. I have oily/combination skin, and I had dry, flaky skin by the end of the day! I think this could be awesome on other people (and many bloggers rave about this foundation), but it's a no for me. Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette in Hidden Agenda (07) I like this palette, but the concealers are…
