Travelling is so much exciting but there are many things to keep in mind while you travel. One of the important things is to make a list of what things you need to carry while you travel. It totally depends on what purpose you are travelling and for how long. But please make a list, that helps.
Today I would like to highlight the skincare and makeup products that you all ladies should remember while you go on a vacation for days long. I will share what I do usually. You can always add something, replace or reduce according to your needs. It is your bag so freedom is yours!
When I am on vacation for several days and plan to photoshoot or go for dinner dates of course I cannot think myself without putting on makeup. So I need to plan and organize my beauty bag. The World´s most precious bag…….isn´t it?
Now come to the main point.
I always carry a foundation, concealer and a setting powder while I travel for several days or even a 2 night cruise trip. Currently I am in so much love with the foundation by Laura Mercier. To hide all the acne spots and dark patches I am so much in love with my concealer and corrector palette by Mac. For highlighting under eyes no concealer works better than Nars. I love different setting powders specially the translucent one by Laura Mercier but during travel I love to carry the yellow power by Beauty Bakerie. I always get tanned while travel and the yellow powder help so much to brighten me up. It also helps to instantly make you look fresh and hides all the tiredness. For highlight, contour and blush I just adore so much the Naked Flushed Palette by Urban Decay. You have everything in one small palette which is so much convenient and helps me to get the perfect shades that I need. While travelling all day long sometimes I need some touch ups or even there are days when I do not like to have any foundations, then I use Pro Finish pan by MakeUpForEver. It can be easily used instead of a foundation on a well moisturized skin. Just Love it.
I cannot think of my makeup completed unless I have my eyes done. So here comes my eye make-up kit! For eyeshadow base I always need my Mac Paint Pot which also helps to make the canvas of my eyelid ready to play with colors while hiding any visible veins or discoloration. Though I feel like to take with me all my favorite eye palettes which is not possible at all so what I do to have beautiful eyes and still not making my bag heavy at all, I take with me the smallest pallets. I really love the Coastal Scents Palettes. They are super easy to carry, the palette contains vibrant colors and very convenient for both to carry and have dramatic eye makeups at the same time. As you can see in the pictures the palette that I have, contains neutral to brown, Blues and even black that allows you to create varieties of looks. This palette is the Go To London palette by Coastal Scents. I love my blackest kohl pencil by Urban Decay which does not spread even after the end of a long day and this is important while you travel. I love Bobbi Brown cream eyeliner to carry with me. There are two reasons that I love it. First of all it doesn’t spread and holds all day long on my lids in the same beautiful way. Secondly I can even use it to do my brows. As I have naturally shaped quiet dense eye brow, I just do some touch ups and it works well. I do not carry my Anastasia Brow Pomade while I travel.
Yes mascara! Roller Lash by Benefit is perfect for waterproof curly long lashes. I love it.
For lips I would say I carry lipsticks but lip balm is a must have. Tony Moly cherry lip balm is small, cute and super hydrating. For lipstick I love to have one bright lipstick preferably Red. For any special place I go or if I feel to have a dramatic look, red lips are something I adore, otherwise nude ones are of course there all the time in my purse. Here you see in the picture, I had Metro Matte lipstick by Mac in the shade Dance With Me. Other than that nude ones are by Stilla and Anastasia. You can choose any shade that you love. But remember one nude and one bright is needed for all purpose. Do not forget lip balm that you need all the time.
The tools are mandatory for a perfect makeup look look. The more natural you want to look, the more blending you need and the tools help. My beauty blender is always there with me. Other than that I have my kabuki brush by Sigma, 3 eye brushes by Sigma for applying eyeshadow, inner corners and blending, A blush brush or a powder brush by Sigma(just one works for travel time), eyebrow brush by Anastasia and my most favorite eyeliner brush by Laura Mercier. My Sephora pouch helps me to organize all these beauties in one place. Thanks Sephora for this beauty bag.
This was pretty much about makeup. Now I want to share a little story of skin care during travel.
I love to have my Lush face moisturizer. While you are in Europe weather betrays you all the time and moisturizer becomes the biggest and best friend. This cream was sent to me by Lush is super hydrating which I prefer using at night and even sometime during daytime. It is a light weight plastic container which is so easy to carry.
For body cream I prefer any flavor by Body Shop depending on the season. I prefer more the body creams by Rituals but when I travel those seem to be pretty huge containers and again body shop packaging is more travel friendly. A face wash could be any of that you love. I have so many favorites and I often switch.
Nivea sensitive after shave balm is something works as a magic 😉 You know why? This is my primer while I travel so both me and my husband can use it without carrying one extra material.
I adore all nighter make up setting spray by Urban Decay. This is must have whether you are traveling or not. Then another favorite thing is the face mist or face water by Lush. It is super soothing. After long travel hours it really sooths the skin and also it helps to clean the face. The last thing I cannot go without mentioning is the banana hand cream by Tony Moly. I love this and this cream is always in my bag.
That is pretty much all. Hope to come back with some travel stories in my upcoming blog.
