Recently I went away on holidays and the one thing we all hate doing is packing. Is it going to be hot, cold, raining? And before we know it we have our whole wardrobe in our suitcase and no space to bring anything back.
As a makeup artist, the hardest thing I find packing is my makeup bag. I tend to think I am going to need everything from my lightest foundation to my darkest foundation (better to be safe than sorry, right?).
I realised when I went to zip my makeup bag shut, that it got a bit out of hand – mind you I was only going for three days and probably had enough makeup to do a whole wedding party! So here’s my top three products I travel with:
1. Napoleon Perdis BBB Cream $55.00: I personally don’t use a primer, only because my BB cream has priming effects in it. Not only does it act as a primer for me, but it also gives me a minimal coverage, which I love, and it was perfect to wear on the plane trip. If you’re heading to a warmer destination I also think this is perfect as most BB creams/tinted moisturisers have SPF in them, so it help’s protect against the sun and also evens out the skin tone without being too much.
2. Two Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette $65.00: This palette is my all-time go-to palette – I do not think I have ever done a makeup without it. Not only does it smell like chocolate, it’s like a four in one. I use this for my eyebrows, highlighter, eyeshadow and you can even use it to contour. This saved me packing all those extra products. This palette contains 16 eyeshadows to take you from a day look to night look. This product is a must-have!
3. Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo $39.00: This the perfect go-to nude lipstick; it comes in multiple colours to suit all different skin tones. It is very hydrating and moisturising, so I wear this on every occasions whether it’s going out or during the day.
Don’t forget to pack some makeup wipes and skin cleansers with you, most skincare brands have travel sizes you can buy. Above is a photo of our plane leaving Hamilton Island and I highly recommend this place. Safe travels everyone!
