Traveling & Makeup


I am so excited to be traveling to Ankara tomorrow eeeeek! For those of you that don't know Ankara is the capital of Turkey. I'm almost ashamed to say that I've never been to Ankara before, glad to be crossing that off my list very soon!

As you may already know, I've been in Turkey for 4 months...which means I already have a limited amount of makeup with me here *tear* This actually made narrowing down and selecting much easier. It seriously took me less than 10 minutes. I think reminding yourself the length of you trip while packing helps quite a bit!


Brushes // Sigma F50 - e.l.f Complexion Brush - Sigma F05 - Sigma F35 - Sigma E55 - MAC 217
MAC Eyeshadows // Twinks - Print - Patina - Orb
Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow - Taupe Grise
MAC Paint Pot - Nubile
MAC Studio Finish Concealer


Dior Poudre Shimmer - Amber Diamond
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
MAC MSFN Medium Dark 
Milani Baked Blush - Luminoso

Picking a versatile blush helps save space for other goodies in your bag, which is what I did. Luminoso is a blush I use quite frequently, I have experimented with it on several different looks. I know it works, so in the bag it goes. Luminoso + Amber Diamond make one of my favorite cheek combos too :)


YSL Touche Eclat
L'oreal Voluminous Mascara
Korres Eyeliner Pencil - Black
MAC Pro Longwear Foundation


You're seeing it correctly - I am taking only 1 lipstick and that is MAC Hue (I love love love this shade!) I've also been adoring my newly purchased Clarins Natural Lip Perfector #2 which happens to look gorgeous layered over Hue. Just in case I want to mix it up a bit and sport pinker lips I am taking my favorite lipgloss YSL Gloss Pur #2. And of course My EOS lip balm is coming along as I am going to a place colder than Istanbul and cracked lips just ain't pretty! 

What would you add/leave out if you were me? What are your must-pack products?

  3. I usually travel with only eyeliner, foundation, powder, blush and a neutral eye palette...my eye shadows would usually act as both my bronzer and highlighters..haha..
    anyway great picks!

  4. I must have my tinted moisturizer, Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, Real Techniques stippling brush, L'oreal magic smooth souffle foundation, and Physicians Formula Happy Booster Light bronzer (can act as a powder, bronzer, and blush for me). I really have to be sure to perfect my skin :-/ I'd also have Luminoso for variety, my EOS Lemon Drop lip balm (sunscreen), Covergirl LashBlast Volume mascara, Hue or Creme de Nude, and a pink like Speed Dial or perhaps something brighter. I can skip eyeliner/eyeshadow if I'm going to be busy. Eyeshadow and liner are for fun!

  5. What I bring really depends on where I'm going and what I'm doing - I just did a post yesterday on what I brought for a weekend trip to see my parents (not much at all), but when I go to Las Vegas for a week this summer, I'm going to bring a ton of bright and dark makeup. great post!

  6. Wow you're so good at narrowing things down! Everything you're bringing looks amazing and they really seem like staple products! I would probably pack a few different colored eyeliner pencils just to give myself some more options while staying travel friendly. Hope you have fun on your trip :)

  7. I love Luminoso too! Totally regret not bringing it with me to Indonesia. Should've taken it instead of my MAC Hipness.
    It looks like there's a lot of stuff from the picture (even though we all know, it really isn't) but every product brought makes sense :)
    Awesome choices. x

  11. You did well! I'd probably add some personal favourites - and an eyelash curler is a must have I don't see here :-)

  12. I think I'd have to add more foundations, I'm afraid I'd get bored! :P You are so practical, I always over pack atleast one category (usually eyeshadow or lipstick :P) when I go away! :P

  13. I've been hearing so many great things about the clarins lip perfector, i def want to try it out now!
    since its super cold and windy here in nyc i would use chanel's lip treatment instead of the eos lip balm to prep the lips for lipstick.

    I need to get that bronzer already! I would leave out eyebrow products, I don't typically use them anyway but also don't feel they are necessary! ♥

  22. Great stuff! I think I'm the worst person to ask haha I pack way to much! I usually bring a whole bag full because I am so indecisive lol

  23. I have that YSL Lipgloss! (I just felt like I was 5 again, and someone in school had the same shoes/bag...etc which meant you had to go up and yell SNAP at them :3)

    I couldn't go without my Bobbi Brown Correct and Conceal kit, my Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation, and a big selection of Mac blushes.

  28. I think it's a great product, I will definitely be repurchasing! I have #2 but once summer gets here and I am darker (right now I am around NC30) I will probably need to go a shade darker.
