I’m going to run through what I have been using daily. If you haven’t been around here lately, my life is kind of in limbo/upheaval at the moment. I am in the process of moving and I am currently living in a hotel.
I am using this makeup for a while, so I kept two things in mind. First, I wanted products I know work and that I love. Products I can count on. Secondly, this isn’t a quick trip, I am going to be using this mini-makeup collection for over a month, so I packed less makeup. This is a bit counter intuitive, but it allows me to buy new makeup products to add in and keep things interesting without overloading on products when I don’t have a way to store them (not all products in my mini-stash are shown here, just what I have pulled at the moment).
I made sure to take a tinted moisturizer and foundation so I can vary the amount of coverage based on what I’m feeling that day. I took a medium coverage foundation since I enjoy those the most (over say sheer or full coverage). I really only took powders I love, I’m pretty hard to please when it comes to my powder, so I rely on what I love heavily (note how close/at pan these are).
You’ll see some new products mixed in here from the last couple of weeks, and I am planning on doing reviews soon.They keep me from getting bored or sick of my mini-stash.
These small essentials are the products I don’t usually have variety in, I can use these everyday for a month and be content. They are don’t – leave – home – without – me products.
I made sure to take lots of small neutral palettes, which are my favorite. I pulled out the bronze shades, I’ve been in that mood, you know?
Moving and starting a new job means lots of long days. Between work and trying to find a place to live, long lasting makeup is a must. I love Urban Decay All Nighter, its the only setting spray that I’ve found actually prolongs the wear of my makeup. It works and I need it.
What have you guys been loving lately? I just found out I will be in Taiwan for the last two weeks of May for work. I expect I will be stocking up on beauty products from the region, so if you guys have any recommendations, please share them! I would love to know.
