Make Up for Traveling

Finally back to my blog...

I just got back from my holiday. Me, my mom and my little sister, we went together to Europe. And it was fun! I don't usually bring my makeup while traveling. But I changed my mind this holiday :D
So, what do you have inside your makeup pouch while traveling? Here's mine:

My tiny makeup pouch that keeps everything and my brushes.

Foundation - Revlon Beyond Natural

Sheer coverage and, of course, natural finish. It's my daily foundation so no wonder I brought it for traveling.

Powder - MAC Studio Fix

Really easy to apply and it last for the whole day

Concealer - Revlon Colorstay Blemish Concealer
I have severe under eye circles so concealer is a must plus this concealer has a very practical packaging so it helps a lot

Highlighter - PAC Shimmering Powder
To add a bit glow on my face. Great packaging but unfortunately it's loose so kinda difficult to apply especially when you're in a hurry, but this is my only highlighter and highlighter is a must in my list so I don't really have a choice, don't I? :P

Eyeshadow - Revlon Marble-ous Match Liner/Shadow Duo in Set The Nude
Now I love this pencil shaped eyeshadow even more. So practical and definitely the right color. Dark brown on one side for all over lids and shimmery light pink on the other side, perfect to highlight my brow bone and add a little shimmer on my cupid's bow. Unfortunately this one is limited edition.

Eyelash Curler - Talika
Turns out, I never really use it.

Eyeliner - MUFE Aqua Eyes
I took this with me because, so far, this is my best eyeliner ever. Nothing can beat it... until I walk around, almost all day, under Rome sun. God, it was 41 degrees and that's when my Aqua Eyes, for the first time, smudge! But it'll be years before I walk around under Rome sun again, so until now this is still my best eyeliner!

Blush - NARS in Outlaw and Super Orgasm
Powder blush is the easiest type of blush to carry around while traveling. I brought my two best blushes with me, Outlaw and Super Orgasm. Both colors look so natural on my cheeks. Even though in the end I put on my Super Orgasm more often.

Lipstick - Revlon Super Lustrous in Almost Nude and The Body Shop
Just like my eyelash curler, I don't really use these things.

MAC brushes
I thought I'm gonna need my stippling brush and my 190 to apply my foundation and my concealer but I ended up using my fingers more often.

Compact mirror
For touch up when you have no mirror anywhere near you

Cotton buds
This is a must! Helps me fix my eyeliner or sometimes, when I feel like wearing it, my lipstick.

Pencil sharpener
Well, I got my pencil liner so sharpener is of course a must.

and the result...
