Hey my loves,
I am a light packer and I love to carry minimal products when I travel. Multi purposing and being basic is my mantra when I travel. Infact I don't think I wouldv'e even applied any makeup if I didn't vlog my travels. I mean, I want to look cute for y'all!
Anyhu, getting into what's in my makeup bag. Keep Reading...
Foundation: A light weight foundation is necessary. Light weight, because heavy duty foundations could break you out with all the dirt and grime that you'd pack on your face as you're travelling anyways.
I chose a shade darker than my skin tone since I knew that a tan was coming strong :'D
True Finish from from Fashion Fair was my first chice, since it's got tiny little specks of sparkle, which kind of gives a glowy luminous finish.

Powder: I chose this tinted powder sunscreen as my powder to set my makeup. It's multi purposing, what's there not to like ?
But, I stopped using the brush that the sunscreen comes with. For some reason, that was breaking me out. So I opened the pot each time and used the mineral powder using my own powder brush.

Mascara: Soap & Glory - Thick & Fast Mascara in Midnight Black.
This was a last minute purchase that I bought from Boots, Kuwait airport. Had no idea if I'd even like it. It was the only cruelty free option I had, there was a buy 1 get 1 free offer, and what do you know? I LOVE IT!

Blush: A baby pink blush does well in summers, and with a deep tan. So I took my Fashion fair blush in Divine pink.
Eyebrows: I prefer taking an eyebrow pencil because you can avoid all the carry-the-pot-and-brush mess, and you don't have to worry about shattering your eyebrow powder and creating a deep dark disgusting mess in you travel makeup bag (been there done that!)
So, I took this nifty little 3-in-1 eyebrow pencil from Makeup Forever in shade 50. It comes with the prosculpt range. It has an eyebrow highlight, a spooly and a pencil all built into that tiny little pencil packaging.
Lipstick: I carried 2 lipsticks - a nudey pink for everyday and a deep red for my date nights :)
Red: Makeup Forever Pro scultp range in shade 40
(I never used the highlight side since I wasn't really feelin' it)
Nudey Pink: Isadora perfect matte lipstick in 06
Contour & Highlight: Makeup forever Proscuplt palette in shade 40 because it contains all that I need in a convenient little packaging.
Lipbalm: I carried my very old MAC tinted lipbalm with SPF 15, just because it's got the SPF, and I'm trying to finish this little rascal. I don't buy MAC anymore since it's not crulety-free.
Kajal: Jovee's brand black kajal, just because that's what I had in hand and it's pretty dark.
That's all for today's quick little post. If you have any questions, leave them down below or get in touch with me on my social media pages.
Lots of love,
