*google it for a clue to where i'm jetting off to*
Last post I wrote about creating the ideal travel outfit for you –see here- today we are continuing our journey to prepare for a fun summer vacation.
Ever wondered “What make up items should I take!!”, well I used to be and over packer when it comes to make up and when I say over I really mean OVER – no one needs two foundations and every shade of pink lipsticks there is- see picture below for proof..
But yes I used to be a heavy traveler, that is until I learnt the hard way, lets imagine a scene shall we?, Shoug at the airport with her precious makeup in her carryon bag passing through security and trembling not to get caught, because she just read a sign that says something about make up, I literally had to distract the guy at the scanner just to pass through!! Man that’s one experience I hope to never relive!!
Moving on, when your on vacation you don’t really need much makeup, why not give your skin a vacation too?? Let it breath and apply lightweight makeup, and since I am traveling to a tropical destination this summer I thought less is more.
So here are the things I have packed with me in my makeup bag:
this will forever be my go to eye shadow palette, perfect for those summer nights
|MAC skin finish in Dark |
to give your face some dimension and couture
|MAC Superb skin finish |
If you’re looking to give your cheeks a bronzy glow, this is a perfect shimmer to enhance your summer tan
|RIMMEL stay matte pressed powder |
this is the perfect powder for a tropical weather, its light but effective, you can never go wrong with this powder
|- Nars Blush in Orgasm and Deep Throat (gorgeous shades that look flawless and dewy)|
- MAC Blush in Prom Princesses (Perfect plum shade for those nude looks)
|- Smashbox BB cream in Medium (who needs foundation when you have BB creams!!)|
- Urban Decay Tinted Moisturizer in Bulletproof (for those days when I just need very light coverage)
|The Balm Meet Matt(e) palette (the only reason I'm taking this is coz it contains my favorite eyebrow shadow)|

- Urban Decay 24/7 in Radium
