Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing my makeup and skin care that is going with me to Mexico!
I have so many items I’m concerned I’ve overdone it.
So I’m leaving to Mexico in a little over 24 hours at the time if writing this but when you read it I will (hopefully) already be there! (It’s supposed to snow tomorrow night. Yikes!)
It’s only supposed to be a little bit and it keeps being moved back so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Oh I do want to say that I will not have a post on Friday. I’m terribly sorry, I’d meant to type something up but I’ve had a lot of homework and I’ve prioritized that. I actually didn’t get anywhere near as much done as I’ve tried to do so I’m traveling with my laptop as well. I’m trying not to beat myself up about it. Key word, trying! But I will make an effort to at least have an outline done when I get off the plane (although I will probably sleep since the flight is at midnight – let’s be real too), and a rough draft done before I get on the plane back. Then I can edit on the plane and do any last minute research on Monday before it’s due on Tuesday. I’ll likely need Monday to catch up on any more work either class that we’ll have.
Anyway I have two bags I’m taking. One is an actual makeup bag and the other is my liquids bag.
I’ve got a ton in both. Really for five days I think I’m exaggerating a bit.
First up, I’m taking the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Sand with my Smashbox Photo Finish primer. I also bought a travel sized Kat von D Lock-It Concealer (in the medium shade, I believe it matches my full sized version but naturally I forgot to double check before closing everything up). I’m taking a sample of the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara and a sample of the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye. I also have a travel sized Batiste dry shampoo but I’m quite nervous about this. I was under the impression you couldn’t fly with cans like this but then I checked the TSA website and the airlines website and the Batiste website and they all said travel size was fine but if they make me throw it out then I won’t be upset about it because I’m highly skeptical. Oh I also have the sample of the Yves Saint Ives Non Paris perfume. A new favorite is the Belief True Cream and that’s coming too. Oh and a sample of an Urban Decay lipgloss (again, forgot to check the shade…).
Some samples that I have actually never tried are coming to. I’m taking the Meyer’s Clean Day Body Wash, Sunday Riley C.E.O Serum, Fresh Sugar lip balm, and La Roche-Posay Cleanser. I also have a tiny bottle of hand sanitizer because I do not want to get sick. I’m so close to bringing a mask on the plane it’s not even funny. Oh and a sample of the Sensodyne Pro-Namel Toothpaste.
In the clear bottles/jar I have some shampoo, setting spray, and some moisturizer with SPF. The shampoo is Suave daily clarifying, the setting spray is the Urban Decay All-Nighter, and the moisturizer is the Eucerin with SPF.
Almost done! I have a few full sized items. I have the Trestique lipstick I got in a past FabFitFun box, Benefit Goof Proof Eye Brow pencil, Besame Brightening Powder, Naked Basics, Naked Flushed, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer, plus a face mask, wipes, and make up removing wipes. Plus a few brushes and toothbrush. Plus I’ve since added items like nausea meds (just in case), tummy meds (also just in case), pain meds (because super just in case), a ton of tissue (because there’s never any toilet paper anywhere), and probably a few more things I’m forgetting I packed.
Oh and contacts. Fun story, I nearly forgot to pack contacts. Oh that would have been so bad!
Geez, it kind of sounds like I’m moving! (I’m not!)
So let me know, do you also travel with a ton of make up and skin care? What’s your travel must-have?
Thanks for reading!
