I am quite minimalistic on the whole makeup front on a day to day basis, but especially when I go abroad. With all of the heat, pool time and delicious food, who has time to do a whole face of makeup complete with primer and foundation? Maybe some people, but not me. I opt for the basics, and I thought some of you might be interested in what I pack for my holidays.. which are today!
Face// Maybelline Matte Maker Pressed Powder… to keep shine at bay.
Smashbox Full Exposure Palette… for a bit of dinner time fanciness ;)
Lips// Nivea Vanilla & Macademia Lip Butter… to prevent dried out lips.
Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Afternoon Tea… to add a hit of color, also for dinner time.
Nivea Sun Protect SPF 30 Lip Balm… Gotta protect those lips!
As for tools, here are my picks:
MAC 116… for powder.
MAC 217… for applying and blending eyeshadow.
Blank Canvas Cosmetics E25/E26 Duo Brush… for applying and a little extra eyeshadow blending.
