|Sample size me!|
I will be packing the following cosmetics:
Foundation and tinted moisturiser. I have a small sample tube of Stila Sheer Colour Moisturiser. I may or may not take the remnants of my current foundation depending on if there is any left.
Make Up For Ever loose powder. I have been using this for years - as in I bought it when this brand was still sold in David Jones and I question every time I use it whether my face will fall of that day. It hasn't fallen off so I guess it's ok.
MAC eyeliner. I will probably take a brown one as it is softer for day.
Clinique High Impact mascara. This is the current mascara that I am using. Come the end of my holiday it will be four months since I opened it (shock horror - I will have used it for longer than the obligatory three month self life once opened). I will replace it with a new mascara at some stage during my travels.
MAC lipstick. I will probably take the shade "Fanfare" with me, as it is a good everyday shade. It also looks great for evening with thick layer of shiny gloss over the top.
I am taking the bare minimum make-up brushes with me - the MAC 217 blending brush for eyeshadow and the MAC 187 duo fibre brush, which I use for powder. I am undecided at this stage whether to pack a blush brush... hmm.
Note, that I am packing no eye shadows or blushes as I will purchase both products on my holiday. Although I wear blush on a daily basis, I can totally do without it. If I do get absolutely desperate for cheek colour, I can use my lipstick.
- Dry shampoo (travel sized)
- Eye makeup remover (deluxe sized sample from Biotherm)
- Cleanser (deluxe sized sample from Biotherm)
- Moisturiser (deluxe sized sample from Biotherm)
- Eye serum (sample from Clinique)
- Hair ties
- A hairpin or two
- Nail clippers
- Fragrance (a tiny 5ml bottle of Chloe).
Lastly, I have decided to pack my makeup and toiletry bag into my suitcase. As "Anonymous" commentator pointed out with respect to my last packing post - the less for customs to check through, the better. Though the few items I specifically listed in that same post (to battle the four Ds) I'm definitely taking on board the plane (unless the powers that be stop me).
Next up my clothing packing list... the most challenging of them all.
