Happy Sunday dolls!
During Easter holidays I visited my parents for 4 days and I thought I'd share with you the products I had with, my currently daily essentials. I was away for only 4 days so I didn't want to carry tons of products. I didn't include my skin care products or my toothbrush and things like that because I have back-ups at my parents house ;) Yeah, I love traveling light but I rarely manage to! lol!
Here's the beauty bag I carried in my suitcase. It's a lavender one from
Oriflame. It's very spacious and has a front pocket where I stuffed a
couple testers, just in case I needed them.
For my nails I took my new Essence 4-in-1 nail file and my cuticle cutter
(don't worry, I'm not a cuticle maniac, this was another just-in-case). I put the cuticle cutter in an organza sacket so it wouldn't touch/scratch my other items. I also got China
Glaze First & Last which is a base and top coat and my currently fav
nail polish Essie Navigate Her.
Ria asked me about China Glaze First
& Last. I'm afraid this is just a First because it's horrible as a
top coat. It's not speed-dry and it doesn't make my polish hard which
means that I managed to ruin my mani an hour after I've finished it. It was
completely dry but not on the inside, if it makes any sense, I want to
be able to literally sit on my nails after an hour without ruining my
mani! So this is a base coat only.
For my foundation routine, I got my Garnier BB cream (still loving it!) and an Essence pure mineral make up which is actually half mineral make up and half translucent powder (added by me) and this makes it a good matte powder that also gives some coverage without being heavy. I got my new BornPrettyStore Retractable Powder Brush to use with the powder. Really happy with it btw, it's super soft, applies powder great and doesn't lose hairs or smells weird or anything. For blush I got my Essence mineral powder blush in 01 Almost Famous which I'm trying to use up with my Essence blush brush, my Essence Stay all day 16h concealer in 02 Soft Beige and my Balea lip balm which is super yummy and was a gift from Sunny!
For make up I decided to go for soft eyes-bright lips. So for my eyes I got Essence Crystaliced liquid eyeshadow in 04 Ice Age Reloaded (1) which is very close to my skin colour while brightening up my eyes, Essence liquid eyeliner in black (3) and 2 mascaras, Flormar Dynamic Volume Mascara in black (2) for night time and Oriflame Power Curl mascara in brown (6) for daytime. For my lips I got my new Essence lipliner in 09 Nude Coral (8) because with bright lips I like to use lipliner and 3 lipsticks. Bourjois Docteur Glamour Cosmic lipstick in 23 Orange Charnel (4) ,which I also try to use up, for a softer result, Artdeco lipstick in 16 (7) which is a pastel orange lipstick and Lovie lipstick in 47 (5) which is a reddish coral.
I wanted to take my Naked palette too but it was only for 4 days so I figured I wouldn't use it that much.
So tell me, what's in your travel make up bag? If you're away for a weekend what are your must-have products? The weather is getting warmer and since most of us can't afford long vacations, a weekend away from the city sounds just amazing!
