Hi there!! So this week I’m going to be bringing you guys a bit more of a image-less post because my computer has a virus and I’m kinda bummed! But that won’t dampen the mood because this is my Travel Essentials post!
After returning from my honeymoon last year I realised that I could have condensed and improved my travel makeup bag. I will say that, to me the type of makeup you take is super dependant on where you are going!! E.g. On my honeymoon to Italy, Malta and Greece in summer, I found myself not wearing much makeup at all, because it was just so damn hot and humid! So while in the Mediterranean for 3 weeks I realised my best beauty friends would be mascara and eyeliner. When it was a hot sticky day I would throw on some bold liquid liner and mascara and that’s it! Some days I took it further and applied a small amount of foundation just to my problem areas like under eyes and also a smear of lippy to be extra fancy.
For a really great mascara I pack and recommend Lashgasm by Too Faced, it doesn’t clump, it’s very waterproof and stays amazing all day.
My eyeliner pick is Ink Liner in Trooper by Kat Von D, again a great long wearing formula, and it’s as small as pencil so great to pack and super black for bold wings.
Usually I would take a brow kit, my E.L.F Brow Kit in Medium is great and I used to use it everyday but then a mirical happened…. I got my brows tattooed, as in feather touch, natural looking, amazing brows 24/7 and I have never looked back.
Lastly a good foundation for the nights you want to get a little fancy, I took my Napoleon Perdis Liquid Cashmere Foundation in Look 2B, it’s small, lightweight and easy to blend with the brush tip applicator it comes in!
So everyone that’s my essentials for a summer holiday makeup kit, it’s minimalistic but useful!!
Thanks for the love, Meggie Moo
