My Travel Makeup: Berlin Edition

By Sunday, April 03, 2016 , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Over Easter Holidays we went to Berlin. This was the most spontaneous trip we have ever planned. It was the weekend before Easter Holidays that we started looking for options of places we can go to for a mini vacation. Few hours later and after lot of discussions we zeroed down on Berlin. Once the place was decided we started looking for the route, hotels, and bookings etc. all that stuff. We finalised all those things by Tuesday and we were leaving on Thursday evening. Not a whole lot of time to think and pack things.

So I packed stuff that I was currently using and I know works plus my trusted products. Without any further delay let me tell you what all stuff I took with me and why?

KIKO Milano Universal Fit Foundation:  It is very light weight and feels very comfortable on the skin. Very easy to apply and blends easily. I use my fingers to apply this so no need to carry a brush. Coverage is light but it can be built up to medium coverage. And it lasted almost all day on me.

NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer in Orange: It is a must to colour correct under my eyes. So with out a doubt I took it.

MAC Prolongwear Concealer: As I opted for a light coverage foundation I went for MAC prolongwear a heavy duty concealer. It is very pigmented and covers those dark circles nicely and any other areas of concern.

Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette: A very compact palette with a big mirror which comes very handy while travelling and this palette is quite a versatile palette. Apart from contouring and highlighting I used this palette for eye shadows as well.

Maxfactor Crème Puff Blush in Seductive Pink: One of my favourite blushes. It gives such a pretty flush of colour on the cheeks and it has slight sheen as well so it provides a highlighting effect as well.

Essence I Love Stage Eye shadow Base: I have very oily eyelids and if want my eye shadow to last I need to use a primer and I have been using and liking this one from essence. It neutralizes any kind of darkness on the eyelids plus it makes the eye shadow colour pop.

KIKO Milano Long Lasting Stick in 05:  Love this shade plus eye shadow sticks are so easy to use and travel with. They work great on their own as an all over lid colour or as a base for powder shades.

So Susan 8 hour Eye Shadow Palette: It is a dinky little palette with neutral shades. Perfect for travelling. You can create a soft day look with it and if you want you can smoke it out with the darkest shade in the palette.

L’oreal Super Liner Silkissime in Brown Temptation: Love how long lasting this eyeliner is and shade is great too. Now I prefer browns over black for daytime.

KIKO Precision Eyebrow Pencil in 01: I love this product and this is the only brow product I have been using for a while now.  Great shade match and the tip is so fine and precise.

Maxfactor False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara: This is new mascara I am trying out and I prefer to travel with waterproof mascara. And this one doesn’t budge but at the same time is a pain to take off.

H&M Lush Lip Vinyl in Tuscan Blush: Another favourite of mine. Such a pretty shade and goes with every look. Plus it is so moisturising on the lips and when I travel my lips tends to get dry. So this kept them looking nice and hydrated.

Retractable Blush Brush: This stays permanently in my travel pouch and comes along on all my travels. It’s compact and easy to carry plus I don’t have to worry about it getting ruined amongst everything.

Apart from all this stuff I also took few eye brushes which I packed separately in a pouch to keep them safe and two other lip products which were in my handbag. I forgot to pack a setting powder but that was nothing major I survived without it.

Hope you liked this post!!

  5. @Yiotou_La: Even I like to plan ahead, it really helps. Travelling light seems difficult at times but it so much better and you actually use the stuff you are carrying. Earlier I use to carry so much stuff and didn't even use everything.
