In my last post I shared my travel cosmetic products with you guys, so today it’s time to share my make up items, that I took with me. I’m planning on buying a bunch of make up items over here in Chicago. Hence I tried to pack light because I need some room for more. I usually bring a bunch of make up along with me but this is a study trip after all meaning that I do have to look appropriate.
For a flawless skin I packed my Rimmel London Match Perfection foundation along with my Rimmel London Stay Matte powder. I packed a concealer and my Catrice Cosmetics Primer as well as my Garnier BB Cream.
I have so many eyeshadows and palettes, so this was a tough decision but I eventually ended up with my Catrice Cosmetics Absolute Nude palette because it contains a few light shades for the days as well as darker ones to glam the look up if needed. Besides this one was pretty cheap, so it wouldn’t hurt too much if it got lost or broken during the flight. Mascara wise I chose this long lashes doll eyes mascara by Astor. The actual name of it is way longer. I’ve really been loving this lately and isn’t the packaging just plain adorable? Some looks need eyeliner so I went with a liquid one from Maybelline.
Cheeks & Lips
I decided to only pack one blush and one lipstick. The lipstick I chose is the Micheal Kors in the shade Diva because it’s a shimmery nude that can sparkle up a simple every day look. The blusher I chose is this gorgeous Catrice Cosmetics all in 4 blush, which contains 4 different shades and therefore makes it perfect for traveling because it can function as a highlighter as well.
My brush collection has grown immensely in the last couple of months, which made it extra hard to choose but I packed my Ebelin travel sized Kabuki brush, one brush to apply blush and one for eyeshadow.
I seriously cannot wait for the beauty shopping in the US and I’m pretty sure I’ll probably bring twice as much make up back as I cam with.
