Last year, I showed in this post what I brought with me on my previous holiday.
I used most of it, but not all of it.
I thought I wanted a few options.
This year when I booked my tickets for my vacation I thought
"I can buy a new make up bag!"
Logical. I also thought "Post on my travel make up bag!" (bloggers...)
The make up bag I purchased again was from Muji.
You can watch this video for a better description on the bag itself
( which is where I found out about it) and she is a lovely YouTuber as well.
So I spent a few days deciding, picking, choosing, editing and
my bag to come to this:
Yikes! at the last photo! Just as much as last year! No no no!
This year I want change.
This year I want essentials.
This year I add in the edit process.
If I am honest with myself I know, I haven't worn blush in two months...I also have not been wearing foundation, so why is a primer there?
All the items in the last photo have been removed.
If you actually look at what's there, it's a whole face routine!
It's a 10 day trip, I will survive with 1 face :P
On holiday's I'm actually not very fussy. Lightening the load was not as hard as I had presumed and I now have something far more manageable!
Why so many concealers?
Because my base for everyday will be Vitazing mixed with sunscreen. More info here.
The concealers will fix all the remaining trouble spots.
The Maybelline Age Rewind concealer I use in conjunction with my Dior Lifting Sculpting concealer for under my eyes.
For my face I mix MUFE waterproof concealer with L'Oreal true match concealer in a darker shade to adjust to my tan.
Speed brow to just keep my eyebrows looking groomed.
Lip tint with lip balm on top.
Just those lip products. They are the only ones I have been using all summer so I doubt I will change now.
Maybelline waterproof mascara ( because the temperature is apparently 34C!), felt tip eye liner because it smudges less in heat, Anastasia Brow Duality as a brow bone and inner corner highlight in one, and an Anastasia brown pencil with built in spooly for less tools to carry around.
Gueraliain bronzer which I have been putting all over the contours of my face and into my cheeks as a blush replacement.
Benefits RSVP cream shadow because I don't want to bring eye brushes on this trip.
Jemma Kidd highlighter in Rose Gold to bring my cheeks to life as I now have a more subtle color there by adding in only bronzer.
Mineral Veil and blotting papers to combat shine.
*Not shown is a mini sample of Benefit's eye primer in stay don't stray*
That's more like it.
I must admit I am sadly extremely pleased with myself.
I was able to bring down my beauty items to the things I actually have been using daily for months and they all fit in this tiny make up bag.
For reference I added in anti bacterial gel, but you can see behind the bag is my In Flight Essentials Bag which is bigger
Sorry for such a long and dragged post, but we all like to look at pictures of make up at least, no? :)
