I said that I'd do a post on some of the stuff I will be taking on holiday so I thought I'd do the fairly popular "what's in my make up bag" post. I don't usually carry around a make up bag as I don't usually touch up during the day but this post will show you some of my most used products. I will also be showing my toiletries bag too so you guys can see some of the stuff I use for my current skincare routine.
I have two bags because I like to keep my makeup and skincare separate
So let's see what's in my makeup bag first:
~ Sleek Eau La La Liner - My favourite pencil liner at the moment. It's lasting power is pretty good and the texture is creamy which makes it a dream to apply
~ Dollywink Liquid Eyeliner - eventhough I'm preferring soft lines atm I brought this felt tip liner with me just in case I have a day where I'm feeling for a bolder, cleaner line.
~ Maybelline the Falsies - My HG mascara. Enough said.
~ MJ Lash Expander Frame Plus - My other HG mascara. When I use it along with my Maybelline one my lashes look DA BOMB!
~ Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm - My HG lip balm. This is the only lip balm that really works for me to helps me prevent dry lips. It has SPF too!
~ Mememe Pussy Cat Cheek and Lip Tint - I will be eating a lot in Hong Kong so I'm avoiding lipsticks and glosses and using this long lasting stain instead
~ Collection 2000 Hot Looks Nail Polish in "Button Moon" - Nail colour I will be wearing in Hong Kong. Just in case it chips :P
~ Elf Brightening Eye Colour in Brownstone - A quad that isn't pigmented enough...which is PERFECT for filling in my brows for a natural look lol.
~ Ecotools Angled Eyeliner Brush - this is actually really bad for applying eyeliner but does a pretty damn good job at applying my brow colour.
~ Other tools: Mister Mascara Tweezers, Mister Mascara Lash Curlers, Mister Mascara Lash and Brow Comb, Yestyle Mirror, unbranded sharpener and hair ties...pretty sure I don't need to explain what these do :)
And now my toiletries bag:
~ Juju Cosmetics Aquamoist Hyaluronic Acid Washing Foam - A nice foamy face wash that makes my face feel squeaky clean
~ Simple Kind To Skin Moisture Boost Hydro Cream AND Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturizer - I bring two moisturizers because my face can never decide if it wants to be dry or oily =__=
~ Clinque Moisture Surge Extended Thrist Relief and Collagen by Watsons Hydrating Facial Gel - just in case my skin needs a boost
~ Contact lenses, case, solution and eyedrops - I don't really like wearing glasses ( ^_^" )
~ Some medicated cream my grandma gave to me - in case my eczema flares up. This cream is also pretty good for mosquito bites too! That's Chinese meds for you.
~ The pill - These are in my toiletries bag so I remember to take them everyday. I highly recommend going on the pill if you want to make sure your monthlies don't come. Periods can be unpredictable sometimes D:
~ Hello Kitty Plasters - If you guys didn't read about it already. I am a klutz and always bang my toes. My big toenail just fell of a few days before my holiday (sorry if this grosses you out). I'm gonna be wearing sandals in HK so I want my toe too look cute hehee.
~ Lacoste Joy of Pink - A fragrance I regularly use. I like to smell nice c:
~ Three travel bottles of products - Containing products that were originally packed in big, heavy bottles which would've been stupid to take on holiday. It's a good idea to use travel bottles instead of buying travel size products as it is more cost effective
What's in the travel bottles:
~ Holland & Barrett Aloe Vera Gel - To moisturize my skin. My skin is hooked on this stuff! Hence the massive bottle it originally comes it
~ Nivea Visage Pure Natural Cleanzsing Toner - To tone my face. I don't actually like this but I'm trying to use it up
~ Biore Cleansing Oil - To take of my make up. I've used this stuff to death I don't even have the sticker on the bottle anymore!
So yeah...that's all the make up and skin care stuff
I'm taking I took on holiday.
What are some of your most used products?
See you in my next post :D
