Okay.. So the reason I’m writing this is because by the time you are all reading this, I will be on a holiday in Italy for two weeks. And I just wanted to give you guys an inside look into my travel makeup kit for the duration. The weather will be slightly hot. But nothing like the Philippine summer.
When I was packing this kit, I tried to put choices in each product depending the weather, my mood and all. So you might see at bit of variation or some what dupes–but not really.
L’Oreal Le Teint True Match in R2 Apricot Ivory & L’Oreal Infallible PRO-MATTE in Classic Ivory
I choose to bring two kinds of foundations because one is more light weight than the other. The L’Oreal Le Teint is less heavy on my skin and it has more of a yellow undertone to it. While the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation is more heavy on the skin but still does a great job in locking it all in your face for the whole day
Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation in Fair Honey– I basically choose this other than my Shu Uemura because this is smaller which makes it 10 times easier to pack. But it also does a great job as a powder as well. What I like about this powder is that, you don’t need to apply liquid foundation if you don’t want to because its already quite think in itself.
The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 003–I am sure all of you guys know how much I love this bronzer. I just brought it because a matte bronzer is a staple product in my kit so I can use it to bronze up my pale face.
Lorac Pro To Go Palette– This product is actually on high demand–even till now and its been more than a year since its release. This product is the best TO GO palette in the market–for me. This palette has 6 shades for eyeshadow, one bronzer–too dark for me, and two blushes. I mean it has a lot of things packed into one. plus it has a huge mirror! Lorac is also known to have one of the greatest eye shadows in the market–review soon!
Post its–I know this might be weird to find this on here because it isn’t exactly a beauty tool or product. Its more of a beauty hack! I actually use this to help me apply my eyeshadow a certain way. I got this idea from Amelia Liana on Youtube.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Silky Beige– I just brought one cream eyeshadow because it can also be used as a primer or a base for my eye shadow to help it stay on longer throughout the day. This is also an exceptional cream shadow to be honest!
Anastasia Beverly hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown and Maybelline Brow Drama Brow Sculpting Wand in Soft Brown– I brought two types of eyebrow products because I just want to be prepared if I will be lazy that day or not. The Anastasia is a thin ‘hair like’ pen that’ll really precision your brows to the shape you desire. While the Maybelline Brow Drama is more like a mascara wand but smaller to just add a a bit of tint to your brows.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Fair/Neutral and Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Brightener– By just reading the names of these two products, you will kinda get the gist of what each of it entails. The Urban Decay concealer is more full coverage than the Maybelline. AND a quick note, when packing concealers, it is always good to pack two shades of concealers. One can be pink toned while the other yellow toned.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara– I know in my past reviews, I’ve said this wasn’t that amusing or it didn’t live up to the hype. But in the end it is still a good mascara just not one that i’ll be repurchasing because there are similar ones in the market.
Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Pepper, Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Chablis and Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Moss Lipstick in 103– To some people this might seem excessive. But really it is quite normal.. I need to prepare myself for different occasions of the trip!–excuses. The Bite Beauty Creme Lipstick is a sheer lipstick, which is great for an everyday casual lip. The Bite beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil is more of a brighter lip with blue undertones that can be applied during the night or if I am feeling a bit funky in the day time– I sound like a mom. and the Rimmel Lasting Finish can be used as an everyday pink lip. But this is more on the matte side.
