My Simplistic On the Go Travel Makeup Bag April 2019

My simplistic travel makeup in the bag

My makeup style has changed over time. There was the time when my skin got horrible and I would try using all sorts of heavy foundation and concealers to hide. Eventually things came round. I have turned my style again which I enjoy a lot and that is mostly inspired my French and overall European styles.

Mostly I use a BB Cream or on top of skincare just some concealer under the eyes and a little here and there in the t-zone and blend it out and top off with a dusting of powder.

Since I am traveling, I thought it would be a nice idea to show how quickly I can do my makeup. It's very basic and clean.

The first makeup I would normally use is a little concealer. I love L'Oreal Paris True Match
Concealer ( on my second bottle now) which I blend under the eyes and in the t-zone. It brings out a light on my face and most importantly, it looks so natural.

I would then dust on a little Oriflame the ONE Illuskin Compact powder which has been with me for a long time. By now I have made a decent dent and hope to hit pan soon.

For my brows, I use either the Face Shop Brow Designing Pencil on another Face Shop Eye  Brow pencil ( review soon). The spoolie from the former comes extremely handy.

For my eyes, I am enjoying blending the golden-beige shadow stick from the Bench. It is Korean

made and sets once I finish blending. The brown is for the time when I want a little more definition in the crease or lightly line my lashlines.

Essence Mosaic Powder Bronzer: I use it to add come definition and colour and take away the flat look. Also, blend in the crease for the put together look ( learned from Wayne Goss).

Follow up with a mascara from Smashbox ( it's not finishing up in spite of all the tough love)

For the lips, there is no fixed product. But the Essence Lip liners are getting smaller and smaller. I used them in all possible combinations. Probably they would be gone by next month.

So, here is my functional on-the-go makeup kitty. It gives a clean face with a polished look which I am currently enjoying.

If you have any such kit, please do share. I am on both Instagram and Twitter and of course Facebook!
