Travel Makeup Kit
the grab-and-go edition
“Pack 5 hours before leaving, unpack 5 days after arriving.” Yep, that’s me! It has actually been 6 days since we arrived from the beautiful island of Balesin for a Nivea event but I haven’t unpacked yet. This makeup kit wasn’t prepared with a discerning mind, either. I just grabbed foundation, eyeshadow palette, lipstick, blush – what else was closest to me at that time – and stuffed them inside this smaller-than-the-average Benefit makeup bag. I did pack this however with a sidenote that this wasn’t an ordinary beach trip where I’d just swim and soak in the sun – it was a PR event where I’d meet people, take photos and had to look decent even if I drank too many glasses of wine or hadn’t had enough sleep because of intimate conversations with fellow bloggers the night prior.
Who needs four lipsticks?! I certainly didn’t. Didn’t use Betty Bright at all. Used Mehr once, Grege the most and Viva Glam 1 once during the last night where it was partay partay. As for foundation, I wore the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation for three days straight and it has never failed me – even after 2 hours of running around doing relays during the Amazing Race, this foundation stayed on like that clingy over-attached girlfriend (or boyfriend!). Plus points that it doesn’t even make me look like I have foundation on! Just even-toned dewy skin ready to bask under the scorching sun.
And of course, I took with me a pack of my ever-trusty Nivea Cleansing Wipes just in case the brand wouldn’t provide them in Balesin – but they did which means I have more extra packs with me now! Woohoo. My sister brought her own makeup remover for the trip but at the end of each night resorted to taking off her makeup using these wipes instead after I showed her how easily it removes even the heaviest makeup – what can I say, I’m a great enabler. Ha ha!
I actually also brought along a small bottle of depotted micellar water but wasn’t able to touch it for the two nights we were there because these Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes removed everything on my face. Although granted, I had no mascara on (can’t be bothered with smears for a whole day event!). Still, it was able to remove waterproof liquid eyeliner with just a little more effort than the usual. I also wanted to bring the Exfoliating Wipes (my favorite) but realized I’d be under direct sunlight for three days and exfoliating + sun exposure is a huge no-no even if you’re protected with SPF.
What makeup/skincare do you take with you to the beach?
