What’s In My Travel Bag

I’m a very noise person when it comes to people’s bag or makeup bag. It’s so interesting to see what other people carry around with them either on day to day basis or when they going out on holidays. As you may know from previous post – I’m going on vacations to Italy. Actually by the time you read this I’m all over Rome eating ice-cream and burning out my feet walking around the city. So… What am I bringing with me for 6-7 days in Rome?

Firstly my makeup bag is from Allure – one month they generously gave it with every magazine – so unfortunately I cannot link to it, but here are my fav bags to travel with.

TravelWithMe: Makeup&Skincare

Last post (unfortunately) in my TravelWithMe series – what I actually gonna take with. You think: yes, yes, it’s easy to speak about light packing, but when it comes to real business – this is where you get stuck! I also struggle with that, you are not alone, don’t panic.

Wanna see what I take to keep me company makeup and skincare wise? Let’s see.

MakeUp:

I’ve deppotted a bit of MAC Face and Body foundation to KIKO container, for under eye circles – Maybelline Lumi Touch Highlightning Pen in Light and for some blemishes space-saving Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer.

For complexion job I packed Clarins Instant Light Complexion Corrector in 03 Rose (it’s quite small and sleek tube), my Nars Duo with Laguna and Orgasm (bronzer and blush – check) and for actual highlighter my new obsession – theBalm Lou-manizer (the review is coming soon!).

For eyes I’m taking my Urban Decay mini Primer Portion to prevent creasing and for actual fun part a.k.a colors I’m taking my MAC palette (Coquette for brows, Club, All that Glitters and …) and some eye crayons – KIKO in 04 and 05. Hope that’s enough! And mascara of course – Maybelline the Rocket, of course.

For lips I’m taking only my NUXE Reve de Miel lip balm and Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 02 Apricot Shimmer. I think I’m picking some more in DutyFree.  I just love them. 

SkinCare:

For makeup removing I’m taking my mini bottle of Bioderma. Good staff. For actual cleansing I’m taking my newest addition – Elemental Herbology Purify & Soothe Facial Cleansing Balm. Should I do a separate review on that? For toning I’m taking my Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile (just need to find a smaller bottle for that) for serum – Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and for moisturizer – Jojoba oil, which is also my body lotion, hand cream and cuticle treatment… oh and a hair treatment.

Tools:

Tangle Teezer Original, some random tweezers (neon yellow – yay!), Real Techinques Buffing Brush and Multi-Task one, MAC 217, 239 and 219 and Clare’s pinky angled for eyebrows.

And I’m done!

Hope those series were very helpful and did help you about a bit. If so, I’m very happy – I’m doing something important :)

By the time the nest post do up I’ll be on holidays! xoxo

Sweebounty Is Going On Vacation

February is going to start for me very pleasantly. I’m going away to Andorra with my friends snowboarding and skiing. I haven’t been abroad during winter for a long time so I’m very very excited. From Monday till Saturday there will be travel related posts  a.k.a ‘Travel With Me’ installment – that’s gonna help me pack and you in future – tips and trick are making an appearance for sure!

First post on the menu is MAKEUP BAG COLLECTION. How more related to traveling can it be? I cannot resist buying them – some of them are more practical than others, some looks nicer, some have cool pattern or signs on them, some are just easy to wash – you know – some many options… :)

KIKO Beauty Twin Set – available here – £8.90. The set comes with two different-sized pouches. Being colorful (available also in black, lime and magenta) they are still transparent enough to be able to recognize the bits inside. I use small for makeup brushes and some beauty tools (eyelash curlers, cotton pads, tweezers) and bigger one for actual makeup. Matching cases look so interesting and sleek and my red option makes it vibrant a.k.a easy-spotted in the suitcase among other staff.

Victoria’s Secret Small Cosmetic Bag – that classic VS pattern – iconic bright and baby pink stripes. Though it looks pretty small it’s actually very roomy. It’s possible to fit quite a lot of products. I also use it on a regular basis – most of my handbags will fit it.

Allure ‘Give Me a Kiss’ Makeup Bag – present with purchase. This came with Allure magazine (cannot remember the issue #) and it is so eye-catching. The kisses are different colors which makes it so adorable. It’s again roomy enough to pack it with beauty bits so travel friendly again.

Victoria’s Secret Travel Hanging Cosmetic Bag – long-distance cosmetics bag. It has 4 zip compartments and one attachable zip pouch. So comfortable to organize makeup, skincare, brushes. Transparent compartments make it easy to look for things, easy to clean in case of spilling drama. Holds a lot of things, don’t worry, anything will fit.
