So I went abroad what feels like centuries ago but really was two months ago. Of course before I went I had all these high hopes of creating regular posts, I took pictures and prepped but when I got there I had so much fun that I kind of just switched off from everything and just focused on enjoying myself with my family. However what that now means is that I have pictures waiting ready to upload so I though, better now than never right? So without much further rambling, let’s have a little peek at what I took on the plane with me.
So when I boarded the plane I didn’t have a scratch of makeup on, I’ll save you from witnessing that in picture form! I just wanted to not worry about getting ready and taking of makeup and all that hassle that comes with wearing makeup on long haul journeys so I just took makeup along with me so when I landed I didn’t look like death warmed up. I also knew that my skin was bound to dry out whilst on the plane so I need some really good skincare to keep my skin happy. Let’s start with skin care. For moisturised I took along my trusty Bioderma Sensibio Lght Soothing Cream which comes in a very travel friendly 40ml tube. My skin gets irritated on the plane so this was perfect and it was light as well so I could keep reapplying without feeling like it was sitting really heavy on my skin. I also took along the Bioderma Sensibio Eye Gel which again is light but very hydrating. For my lips I grabbed my Elemis FreshSkin Quenching Lip Balm which did just that. Oh I also took along my very trusty Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water which I cannot live without. Overall, I think my skin care picks were just right and I didn’t feel like I forgot anything on that front!
For my makeup I wanted products which were a cross between compact and easy to use. Starting with base I went for my much loved Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer and Translucent Powder duo in Honey/Pale Yellow. To blend it I used the very versatile Nanshy Large Shader brush which worked very well. For eyes I chose my MAC eyeshadow palette, 2True Liquid Eyeliner and Bobbi Brown Intensifying Mascara. My brush choice was again another Nanshy (love this brand), this time Eye Crease Brush. For my brows, without a doubt, I picked up my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Ebony which of course worked like a dream. For my blusher I opted for a deep pink shade in the form of Motives Cosmetics Runway blush and used a Japonesque Blush brush which was nice and little. And finally for my lips I went for a nude pink using NYX Peekaboo Pink lip pencil, MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick and AVON Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in Nude Muse. It was very easy to create a fresh faced look with these products which was exactly what I was aiming for and again I gave myself a little mental pat on the back for choosing wisely!
And these are all the brushes I used to create my makeup look.. just kidding! I’m not sure why I took a picture of these brushes but these are the ones I took along with me for when I was in Canada for two weeks. I know, quite a lot of brushes for just two weeks away but I promise I pretty much used every single one. I think it is mostly a mix of Real Techniques and Nanshy and a few more brands. I thought you might like a little peek at my brush pouch!
