• My Weekend Away Essentials

    I recently went away for the weekend and decided to be sensible about what I take with me when it comes to my makeup.  

    So these are my 5 items:

    1. A BB Cream - I took my Dior Hydra Life BB Creme with because it provides such great coverage and also has an SPF of 30.
    2. A compact eyeshadow palette - I chose my Bobbi Brown palette because it has a whole bunch of neutral browns that can be built up to be dramatic or toned down for a more natural look.
    3. A good mascara - if you are only taking one mascara, make sure it is one that gives you amazing results all the time.  I took my Chanel Sublime mascara because it never disappoints me.
    4. Blush - I love wearing blush and it is a must for me. I took my Smashbox blush because it is beautifully pigmented and adds a nice pink glow to my cheeks.
    5. A neutral lipstick - I took my Stila lip colour balm with because it is such a fantastic lipstick that wears like a lipbalm.  It is perfect for on the go touching up.

    At initially I told myself I could only take 5 things but I had to take my Inglot powder with because I like to take away the shine on my skin and have a more matte appearance. 

    So there is my list of Weekend Away Makeup Essentials.  Let me know what you carry with you and can't do without.

    Big hugs,

    1. Great products! I don't own any of these but would love to. I don't think I could narrow down my weekend away essentials to such a small list. I always pack way too much. xx

      1. It is tough to narrow choices down, I had a tough time.

    2. Love the list. I went for a weekend away last week and just took my whole cosmetic bag because I couldn't play favourites with my make-up. I found that I ended up only using my concealer (didn't apply any foundation), my blush (which I also dusted my eyelids with), my MAC Opulash mascara and a clear lipbalm. I could've followed your list and still have overpacked!

    4. Same as Chicara, I could never just pack 5 or 6 things... I'm a very heavy packer, it's like it's in my DNA. Whenever Neal and I go away and I put all my suitcases and bags together, he just looks at me and says: Really?!

      Great picks though, still would like to try one of those Stila balms! x

    7. I carry way to much stuff so I'm taking notes as to what is essential.

    8. I beat you. I went away for 10 days and only took smoky eyeliner that smudges nicely, mascara and lipstick. I took a lot of skin care products as well, but that was the only makeup.
