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!

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 :)

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?
