Just a quick little photo post! I’m visiting my family in Houston, and it is humid! I always try to travel light, and as sweaty as it’s been, make-up seems like it’ll just melt off my face.
Some of this stuff is always in my make-up bag (Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener, Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad in Blushed Wines, some MAC eyeshadow brushes, and my Too Faced Katbuki Brush), but when I travel, there are some products that help me keep my load small and compact:
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream in Fair // This is my first bb cream and I’m in love. It’s like a tinted moisturizer with a higher coverage payoff. I don’t have to use primer (although with my dry skin I still have to moisturize beforehand), so I just bring this little bottle instead of my primer and my foundation. Plus it has SPF 35, so even if it smells a little like sunscreen, I don’t care because I love knowing it has the added protection in it.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment mini & Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Lollipop //The Fresh lip balm always makes my lips feel awesome, so I always have it with me, but especially on vacation because even without color it improves the appearance of my raggedy ole kisser. Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows I’m addicted to Revlon Lip Butters, and Lollipop is a great summer color. It’s a bright pink fuscia, but since it’s a lip balm hybrid, I don’t have to pay for the color with dry lips.
Pink Grapefruit Body Butter Mini from The Body Shop // I have Becca from Ribbons in Curls to thank for this. The other night I was complaining about dry hands and she produced a magic, tiny body butter from her purse. I immediately when out and bought two. I got a strawberry (the one she had) and the grapefruit because the Body Shop had a BOGO special. It’s so cute and tiny and moisturizing! Normally scented things don’t cut it with my skin, but this stuff has blown me away. Plus my mom and sister really like it.
Soap and Paper Factory Midnight Solid Perfume //Jasmine is a really nostalgic scent for me. My grandma’s backyard has tons of jasmine in it, and since she has a pool we spent a lot of time back there when I was a kid. This solid perfume is portable, won’t spill in my bag, and it smells exactly like my Gammy’s backyard. It’s straight up jasmine.
And that’s that! I’m off to hang with my fim fam. See you later!
P.S. Ribbon shapes for Photoshop are from Pugly Pixel (who else?).
P.P.S. I didn’t cover everything in my bag, so if you have any questions about a product I didn’t list, ask away in the comments!
