As you read this, I’m currently on my way to Belgium. As some of you may know by now, I’ll be at the 2016 World Youth Day that are taking place in Poland. I’ m taking a couple of weeks to visit Europe (Belgium, Germany, Poland, and Paris). This trip was a lot of preparation, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be one of the most amazing experience of my life (so far). Who’s says travel says, travel bag, today I wanted to give you an in-depth look at my travel beauty bag.
For face care I’ll be using all Clinic products, on my last trip to the drugstore the lady gave me some deluxe sample size, and I just find them easier to carry around.
For this trip I didn’t bring a lot of make up with me, because I’m not planning on wearing makeup everyday and I want to keep it as simple as it can be. I still want to bring some essential with me- just in case.
When I pack my makeup I like to think about the order that I apply it in the morning. So that way I can make sure that I’m packing only do things that I really need and nothing more. I’ll start off with a primer, since I’m going away during the summer I want something that will keep my face matt and will control oil excess and that’s why am using my smash box photo finish primer. I’m also bringing my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, my beloved Maybelline concealer, my Kat Von D tattoo liner, and my better than sex mascara (click here for review).
For lips always like to have a few option. I always bring with me lipgloss, one that is more natural(click here for my Lime crime Velvetines review), and a more colourful (click here for my melted lipstick review). It’s the same thing for lipstick I like to bring some kind of natural lip colour, and in case I have the urge a of something a little bit more bold, I always make sure to bring “statement colour” (click here for my studded kiss review). Of course my makeup beauty bag would be empty without my trusted lip balm.
Onto toiletry; when you’re traveling you want to be as comfortable as you can be and personal hygiene is something that you shouldn’t neglect… To make sure that I have everything that I need I like to make list, just to make sure that I won’t forget anything. So for this trip I’ll need:
- Body soap
- Sunscreen ( this Hawaiian tropic cream is my new favourite I just love the smell of it!)
- Body and hand moisturizer
- Tooth brush/toothpaste /floss
- Shaver (this one is made by Venus and it is just the perfect size to travel)
- Ear plugs
- Nail clippers
- Nail file
- Insect repellent lotion
I like to separate everything out. I have my liquids and creams in a plastic bag and the rest is in my makeup bag. To me it’s very important to separate everything out just in case they ask me at the airport to remove all my liquids…having them in plastic bag is super easy you just pull it out of your bag and you don’t have to dig through all of your stuff and mess up all your well-planned luggage.
So that’s it for my travel beauty bag! Are you planing to go on a trip this summer? If so let me know where you’re going in the comment section down below!
