Hello lovely Luuuxers! Now that I`ve graduated, I`ve been commuting back and forth between my parents` house and my job, which is downtown in the city that I live. My boyfriend lives within ten minutes walking distance of my job, so I frequently stay with him to save myself a commute! That means that I`m always thinking about how to consolidate my things so that I`m not lugging so much stuff there back and forth.
I took the above picture when my boyfriend was at the gym working out, since he always makes fun of me for being so beauty obsessed (he`s kidding, of course!). One time he saw me scrolling through the Sigma website and when he saw me looking at the Face Kit, he said, "You are always looking at face kits! Stop looking at face kits!" LOL! So now he refers to makeup as face-kits: when we`re at Target he tells me to run along to the face-kit aisle, and whenever he sees me on Luuux he tells me to stop looking at face-kits. He`s so silly!!!
Anyway, long story short, here are the products that I bring along wherever I`m traveling. I don`t want my makeup to take up a lot of space so I basically bring the essentials, and I like to bring products that can be used many different ways.
First off, I like to bring my Monistat anti-chafing gel as primer, because the tube is slim and can be sort of folded up or squashed in there. It also works really well, I love it. For foundation, I like to bring my L`Oreal True Match Naturale mineral foundation, because the packaging comes with a kabuki-kind of brush that I really enjoy using, and it saves me having to pack another brush for foundation. I also bring my Cover Girl Clean pressed powder because it is the only pressed powder I have right now, and it is less bulky than my ELF HD powder, as well as less messy. I also love that it has a mirror in the compact! However, the best travel product in my opinion is the ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer duo, since it has two products in one compact and has a really big mirror! Score! Then, I bring my Dream Lumi Concealer (or sometimes my Physicians Formula concealer twins, because they`re the same size) because its slender and takes up very little space. As for eyeliner, I really like bringing my Wet n Wild Color Icon eyeliner in Mink Brown because I can also use this on my brows, it works well for both! My favorite mascara at the moment is L`Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes, so I just throw that in there, as well as my ELF eyelash curler. As for brushes, I just bring my ELF complexion brush and blush brush. The ELF blush brush isnt the best but it does the trick for now. Finally, I keep a little container of baby shampoo for brush cleansing and makeup removal, and I use my boyfriends face wash and moisturizer!
Phew! It doesn`t seem like all that much when I look at it, but when I write it down it seems like so many things! It fits nicely into the little makeup bag that I have behind all the products, and I feel like I can always look put together with just these products. Best of all, everything in here is totally inexpensive! :)
Hope this maybe helped you all, if any of you are going on a trip or summer vacation and wanted some advice on packing lightly! :)
