Travel Beauty Essentials (Winter edition)

Wassup, I am back with another post! I recently went on a trip to Melbourne and I thought of doing a blogpost of what makeup I’d bring there. But then things got crazy so I wasn’t able to make the post. So now that I am back, I am able to gather my thoughts and do a post that will hopefully be helpful to travellers.

I was in Melbourne for 9 days, it was near the end of winter. Cold, but not snowing. So I opted for dewy foundations/tinted moisturizer and decided to leave the powder behind. I made sure I had all lip color options, a pink, a red, a nude. As much as possible, I stayed away for mattes because it will dry my lips more. I brought a gloss because I know it will save me in the cold weather. I had two cheek options too- one cream and one powder. I brought cream shadow sticks and an eyeshadow palette. As for brushes, I brought a buffing brush, a blush brush, stippling brush and 2 eye brushes. I was able to fit everything in 3 pouches – that include skincare, body care and makeup. I was quite impressed with my packing skills if I may say.

Bold and Berry

All About Plum 3

Winter is not yet over so I think it’s still not too late to talk about  about bold lips. Most specifically, berry lips.  I love dark lips. Be it red or plum/berry – I really love the look of it. It’s a great color that can easily brighten up your bare face. I remember seeing Heart Evangelista on TV 4 years ago sporting a beautiful vampy lip and I thought to myself: I want a lip stick like that. I asked my aunt from the US to buy me my very first MAC lipstick, REBEL. I loved it so much that I didn’t bother to buy or look  for any other plum lipsticks. It’s a dark purple that looks great opaque and looks great when sheered out as well. It also fades gorgeously into a light purple/pinkish stain. This is probably the “driest” of them all when it comes to texture. It’s a satin so it has a bit of a shine, but it feels a little bit drying on the lips as I wear it throughout the day.

My Current Makeup Removers

Processed with VSCOcam with s1 preset

As much as I love putting on makeup, I make it a point to remove all my makeup before I go to bed.  I know a day can get very tiresome and it’s very tempting to just plop to the bed and sleep. But your skin needs to breathe, people. You need to remove all the things that you piled on your face. Continue reading My Current Makeup Removers
