Vacation Face

I wish I was a light packer. I'm not the kind of girl that has to check in a bag full of clothes and makeup for every trip, but I am not a throw-in-one-underwear-and-lets-go kind of person either. I have the tendency to over pack, but the more I travel the more I am learning through trial and error which products belong in my travel bag, and which need to stay at home with my cat.

For my recent trip to Portland & Seattle we planned exploring the cities, nonstop eating, and hiking in the northwest forests, so I chose products that would create a fresh face with a rosy glow. Below are the products that made it in my bag:


Urban Decay Naked 3 $52

I always bring an eyeshadow palette. It saves room in my makeup bag, and I don't have to go fishing for single eye shadows. Lately, I've been really feeling the Naked 3 color because rose and pinks accentuate black eyes.

Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara $7.49

From the package this mascara doesn't look all that special, but the densely packed bristles on the wand grab every single lash. "No lash left behind" should be their slogan.

Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Fresco $30

This has been my go to lipstick for 3 months now. It is the perfect shade of a rosy mauve for my lips, and the sheerness of the formula gives a nice sheen, which is extremely wearable for all occasions, even work. This is a great lipstick for a no-fuss kind of girl.

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation $45

This foundation is easy to put on in hurry. It's not heavy, and offers great coverage.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner $18

This liquid eyeliner has a super fine point, that does not budge when you swipe it on your lids. And the color is a true inky jet black, even after it dries.

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer $32

This really is a full coverage concealer, which perfect for covering any blemishes.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer $52

This primer extends the longevity of my makeup by a few hours, so I don't have to retouch.

Urban Decay Primer Potion $12

I have been in love with this stuff ever since I got my hands on it years ago. It is an amazing primer that will leave you with smooth, vibrant eyeshadow for hours.

Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder $29

I set my foundation with this and it stays put.

Bobbi Brown Blush in Nectar $25

This is a highly pigmented blush, but using a little gives the most beautiful flush.

Chanel Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Brun Naturel $29

With this pencil I can do my eyebrows in seconds, and who doesn't like that?I hope this inspired someone who's going on a trip! Vacations are too short to be worrying about your makeup, so it's best to stick to your holy grail items, and bring a few fun lipsticks to change up your look.
