If I timed this correctly - my first "scheduled post" this should go up when I am either flying or landing in Singapore. Crossing fingers here!
Travel Make up Bag - From Muji
My make up bag is lumpy and bumpy - I am kicking myself for forgetting to buy mini mineral powder containers at Sephora. The containers are taking up too much space, grr
My travel itinerary includes destinations which are now A LOT warmer places than the now COLD NYC - so let's see what I packed
Mineral Make up: More ideal in warmer weather, looks great even when you are sweating through it! Lancome+ Bare Mineral's Mineral Veil
Travel sized BB cream: in case I get tired of mineral make up
NARS Primer: Trying to finish this up!
Two eye palettes: One is a mini palette which is I am trying to use up, one is just full of soft colors perfect for everyday. I have not used this in a while so I wanted to give it some love
MAC Luster Drops: Mini highlighter
Paul and Joe Eye Glosses: Slick these on lazy days
Boscia Blotting Sheets: A MUST
Revlon eye brow gel
NARS Dolce Vita Gloss, Dior Lip Glow, Dior Lip Gloss in Apricot Clouche, Estee Lauder's Red Velvet
Maybelline and Chanel: Waterproof mascara for day, higher impact mascara for night
Bobbi Brown Gel liner: Trying to use this up!
Dior Concealer: My under eye savior
Sonia Kashuk concealer: My current go to concealer with mini powder for setting my under eyes
Clea De Peau sample concealer: Testing this out to see if I want to buy it
Mini Bare Minerals Foundation: In a very very dark shade to use as a travel bronzer
Lorac Palette: I don't use anything in palette except 1 shadow, but it's my favorite, so it goes!
NARS O and MAC Peaches: A pink and peach option - I never wear NARS O, but always seem to wear it on vacation!
Anastasia Brow Pencil: Trying to finish this up!
Shu Uemura Brow Pencil: For if Anastasia is complete mid trip
Sephora Black Liner, MAC Teddy Liner (Brown), MAC Brick Lip Pencil
MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner: Almost done with this!
*Not shown- Mabelline Dream Matte powder for touch ups*
Things to think about, realize, and decisions:
A few things I realized when packing is: I know I am bringing way too many eye products. I will probably choose 1 thing and use it the whole trip, but the whole "you never know" factor kept creeping into my brain - I like having choices!
Many of the items I could bring 1 of, I brought several because they are on their last leg. I have so many lipsticks and chap sticks I am bringing because they are all 90%-95% done. If I just brought 1, I wouldn't have enough.
I avoid bringing limited edition items. I will miss it but I must have some dupe I can use in the mean time! because losing or breaking something like that, would make me pretty bummed!! (sad as that sounds)
And I don't want to pay some crazy $ for an ebay replacement!
Avoiding baked items - prone to cracking/shattering into 54515124001033 pieces!
Hopefully I finish some of this stuff during my trip!
