My Travel Essentials: Makeup & FOTD

When I travel, I want everything to be simple. Even my travelling style is hassle free and laid back. I hate to join tours where everything is scheduled and rushed. I think I’d die of exhaustion, which will defeat the purpose of having a vacation. Well, for me anyway. I went with my family to Melbourne just recently, and a few of my brother’s friends joined us. They wanted to travel to see the 12 Apostles (which I have seen) and to Philip Island (which I have been), so I took a day off from their itinerary to stay back in the rented apartment and just lazed around. Chilled. Read a book. Watched Aussie tv. It was a good alone time. And I have swayed from the topic.

Anyway, my makeup is essentially, back to basics. I made sure I packed for products I could apply using fingers only. I have a tinted base from Shiseido (Brightening Spot-Control-Base UV SPF35), beach tint from Becca, Revlon PhotoReady compact powder (sponge included), a sample sized mascara from Estee Lauder, a brow pencil from Empro, Lunasol eyelash curler, a tweezer and Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm. That’s it.



What I do is, I apply the Shiseido base all over my face and neck using my fingers. I also blended some Becca beach tint on the apple of my cheeks for some colour before powdering over it. I fill in my brows using the angled brow pencil from Empro, curl my lashes and apply 2 coats of mascara, a dash of lip balm and I’m done. Here’s how my simple barely there makeup looks:



This is also what I do when I’m in a hurry – takes 5 minutes, tops.

What is your makeup like when you travel? Do you apply any at all? I’d love to know 🙂
