hi gals!!! im back! i had such a great time in Cebu and Davao! can’t believe that my one week holiday is over! boohoo… but i had a blast! i will create a blog about our cebu vacation and will post that on my other site 🙂

for now, i just wanted to share what i usually pack when i go on a vacation. although i am a certified makeup junkie, i tend to get lazy when im on a vacation. usually ill just put on blush and be on my way. but i do take a few things with me “just in case”. 😀

so here’s a low-down of what i pack and take with me (note: the brand / color may differ, but most of the time, the type of makeup i bring is the same)

from left to right, top row to bottom:

1. makeup brushes / laura mercier brush set – i love this set for traveling! most the the brushes are double-ended so i get two brushes in one! i got this as a gift for my birthday last year 🙂

2. concealer / garnier skin naturals light bb instant fairness bb eye roll-on (P299)- i got this when we dropped by watson’s in cebu… i didn’t think that i would like it but i must say it does a great job in covering my dark circles! will do a complete review soon. (yes yes, i have a looonngg backlog of reviews to do. sorry sorry!)

3. eyebrow pencil or dark eyeshadow / bobbi brown metallic eyeshadow in java – got this waaayyy back when i was still living in singapore and i forgot how much it costs (i think more or less P1200). i like this shadow because i can use it as my eyebrow shade, eyeshadow or eyeliner 🙂 multi-purpose products are a must when you’re going on a trip.

4. eyeshadow / MAC mix&match eye shadow (P1200) – i’m into goldish-orange eyeshadows now so i decided to bring this one… usually, ill pack one or two eyeshadows which i think will coordinate (does NOT have to match) with most of the clothes that i’ll bring. i actually ended using the lighter shade more. just a sweep of color on my lids and eyeliner! :p

5. powder blush / tarte amazonian clay blush – since i know that i will be visiting a very humid place, i opted to bring a matte and long-lasting blush so that i don’t have to touch up my face during the day. (not a fan of touching up my face, most especially when it’s all greasy from facial oil or perspiration)

6. cream or blush stain / smashbox cream cheek duo – OR most of the time, i just put on a cream / stain blush because it’s easier to apply. if i want my blush to stick around longer, a trick i do is i apply my cream blush and then apply powder blush on top (for longer lasting power :))

7. tinted moisturizer / laura mercier oil-free tinted moisturizer – i tend to stray away from my liquid foundations when im going on a vacation because (i) it’s not easy to bring around, most of my liquid foundations are in a bottle and i always worry that it might break when i put it in my luggage! or (ii) i just couldn’t be bothered :p that’s what i like about tinted moisturizers, i just apply and blend with my fingers and im done! fast.easy.convenient.

8. powder foundation / pur 4-in-1 pressed mineral makeup – another product that i am loving! again, will post a separate review on this… but the reason i bring a powder foundation is for those times when i feel that i need extra coverage or for those times when we suddenly decide that we want to eat at a fancy restaurant… :p

9. waterproof eyeliner / makeup forever aqua eyes waterproof eyeliner pencil – waterproof is the magic word 🙂 humid weather is the number one enemy of all eyeliners… so it’s best to bring around the best smudge-proof eyeliner you have.

so there you have it! 🙂 hope you liked this post. please feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions / comments.

will be doing back to back reviews soon. i have sooo many things to review! :S

good night everyone! and i hope you have a great week ahead!

mwahs,

i try to rotate my makeup look at a weekly basis because it’s just so painful if i need to decide on both clothes AND makeup everyday! :p

because of this, i decided to start posting FOTWs as well, usually my FOTW will be a more subtle and wearable look because it is something that should be work appropriate 🙂 oh and since i usually put on my makeup in the office, it has to be something easy to do!

here’s my first FOTW:

photo taken with iphone :p
oh btw, i got a new haircut! 😀 i HIGHLY recommend oliver of vivere salon in SM Megamall 🙂

Products used:

Makeup Forever Mat Velvet + (my NEW favorite liquid foundation – reviews to follow… but i can say, this is holy grail product!!!)

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural to set the foundation

MAC brow pencil in Brunette

Nars Ondine Eyeshadow (all over eyelids)

Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Caviar Ink

Makeup Forever Lift Concealer

NARS Mata Hari blush (it wasn’t THAT intense in real life!)

Laura Mercier lipstick in Duchess Rose

this is a very easy look to wear. 🙂 hope you guys like it! 😀
