My Travel Face

Hey guys!

So since I’m flying to London today I thought, hey, why not share with you guys how I do my make up when I travel. By the time you’re reading this I should’ve already landed in England. I actually have to get up at 4am because our flight leaves at like 7am. Yeah, that’s going to be tough! I am so not a morning person at all. I usually don’t ever really sleep before 2am and now I have to get up at 4. I really hope I can fall asleep early today because I know once we’re in London I won’t get a chance to sleep all day and I don’t want to be up for 24 hours. Anyway… let’s get to the actually point of this post. How I do my make up when I travel.

What’s most important for me is a flawless fresh looking skin. Normally when I go on really long flights, or car, train or bus rides I either use no make up at all or BB cream because it’s lighter on my skin. Since the flight to London isn’t that long but I won’t be able to really do my make up once we’ve landed I’m using my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation because it literally lasts all day and makes my skin look good. Of course, you have to use concealer. Traveling can be exhausting and make you look tired so we need some concealer to hide those tired eyes. To set everything I just use some translucent powder.

Next up are my eyebrows. I don’t know why but I always need to do my eyebrows.  I feel like doing your eyebrows really shapes your face and makes you look a lot more pulled together. You know what I mean? So first I fill in my brows with a brow pencil. I’m currently trying out different ones. It’s really hard for me to find a color because most brands separate their eyebrow colors into colors for blonde, brown and black hair but even though I’m naturally blonde I have pretty dark eyebrows. I think I’m somewhere in between blonde and brown, which is why it’s hard to find a good color. If you have any recommendations please let me know!! After filling in and shaping my eyebrows I use eyebrow gel to keep everything in place.

When I’m traveling I usually skip eyeshadow and eyeliner and just apply a bit of mascara just to give my eyes some definition. Plus I like my eyelashes to be really dark. Because I’m really pale I apply a bit of blush. One of my oldest and most loved blushes is my Mac blush Well Dressed. It is such a subtle pink it’s perfect for every day. Instead of lipstick I’m just applying some lip balm.

That’s it already! This is how I do my travel face. When I travel I don’t feel like I need a bright lipstick color or fancy eyeliner. I prefer to keep it natural and causal. What does your travel face look like?

Have a wonderful day!

Animal Adventures

Hey guys,

Guess what I did yesterday? I was chilling out with Bambi! Okay, just kidding. My best friend and I decided to do something fun and active because the weather was absolutely amazing, so I suggested to go on a bike ride to this zoo/ animal park type of place. I know I’ve just been to one similar like this with my grandparents and my little brother but it was so much fun I looked for one closer to where I live and found one. According to google maps it would take supposedly 36min by bike to get there. Now I always get lost everywhere it’s gotten me into quite the embarrassing situations before, so it was like we were doomed to get lost. It took us about 2 hours until we’ve finally reached our destination. At least we did find it in the end. On the plus side it was a good work out because we cycled for 2 hours straight and we had to cycle up quite a lot of hills. You cannot believe how glad I was when we finally reached the park. Good thing I remembered to bring a bottle of water. We saw lots of cool animals and the best thing was that you could buy food for them and actually feed them. Yeah, I was probably more excited about that than most of the little kids there. Anyway.. here are some pictures. Hope you enjoy!

This arctic owl was actually the first animal we spotted. I think they are such beautiful creatures, so I had to snap a picture.

They even had sea lions. I know this picture isn’t the best but you gotta love sea lions. They seem like such friendly animals.

Next up were the donkeys. Donkeys are my grandma’s favorite animals and she always wanted to get a few but never did. Such a shame because I think they are so cute. Apparently they bite though because there was huge sign that you shouldn’t feed the donkeys or try to touch them because they bite but yeah.. here’s me being a rebel and touching one anyway.

KANGAROOS!

Okay, this might be the cutest guinea pig I’ve ever seen!! I used to have a few guinea pig pets when I was little but unfortunately they’ve all passed by now.

I’m not the biggest fan of monkeys.  I don’t really know why but they freak me out. This one was so cute though. In a way it looks so sad in this picture it makes we want to go back and free it. Poor little monkey. :(

Meet my new best friend! Even though I had run out of food it wouldn’t walk away and wanted me to pet it. I think it loved me!

So this was our fun day at the animal park.

Hope you enjoyed this post.
