As you may know from my post yesterday, we had a little getaway for Labor Day. I thought I’d show you what makeup I brought along with me. I wasn’t sure what all we’d be doing so I brought my most versatile and easy products. I feel like a did a good job packing this time.
Normally, I bring way more crap than I need. I did bring a lot of other junk I didn’t need aside from makeup but that’s another story.
Okay, let’s jump in!
Starting with eye products.
Brushes, I chose to bring a double ended brush from Crown Brushes. One end is an angled blending brush and the other a pencil brush. I also brought along my favorite Sonia Kashuk blending brush and my brow brush from Real Techniques. The brow brush works exceptionally well with the brow product I brought.
Speaking of brow products, I brought my E.L.F Professional Studio Eyebrow Lifter and Filler. I have an odd way of applying it. It’s a chunky pencil and I find it way to harsh to apply straight from the pencil so I take the brow brush and put the product on it and they apply it. Gives a much more natural effect. It’s a great product to have on hand for travel cause if you have it in a darker shade like I do, you can use it as a liner also. It holds up pretty well in the summer heat as well but will smudge.
I also brought my Maybelline Brow Sculpt to set my brows, they can be kind of crazy some days.
Eye Primer is a must to me, hooded lids + hot temps = creased mess. I brought my trusty ELF Primer.
In the liner department, I brought my ELF Liquid Liner Pen and my Nyx Wonder Pencil so I wouldn’t look exhausted from late nights.
The Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette got brought along because I can create quick looks with it for any occasion that might crop up. It’s all slim and sleek. Great for travel. Not to mention a great mirror inside.
Then my two best contour and highlight buddies. ELF Baked Highlighter and Wet N Wild’s Contouring Palette. For more on how I contour check this post out.
Other stuff in my bag was my deodorant, oral care products, hair bits and perfume. I’m obsessed with Elizabeth and James Nirvana. I still have mixed feelings on that organic deodorant. I can do a review if you want on it, cause boy do I have lots to say.
Not pictured would be my hair brush, shampoo / conditioner and hair spray. I have them in another bag.
Anyway, there you go. I love taking picture of products right now. I got the new Galaxy Note 5 and it takes great shots so I wanted to play with it. I added the focal blur in Gimp. I think it just makes product pictures look better. I’m still perfecting my technique.
Bee Beautiful. Bee You.
