What To Pack - Travel Makeup

Since im packing.. i thought i might as well show you what i'm bringing along with me makeup wise :) First off, i am super lovinggg my new makeup bag that i purchased from H&M. I love it so much that i even got another one in grey and pink! The outside of the bag is plastic so it is waterproof and it can hold a tonnnn of stuff! (i think this was around $5 CAD?)

note - my all time favourite products are in purple!

inside the bag - one side has two pockets

inside the bag - other side has one big pocket

zipper goes all the way down on both sides, plus the bag expands allowing it to carry alot!

not even halfway full!

Anyways, onto my makeup products! first off is face products. Im bringing two foundations because i normally like to switch on and off. The missha one has very high spf protection while the revlon has better coverage.

Revlon photoready foundation in nude - gives good coverage & dewy look
Missha perfect cover bb cream - has spf 42 which is a must!
Monistat anti-chafing powder gel - my favourite, cheap primer!
thebalm time balm concealer in light/medium
Rimmel stay matte powder - no more oily tzone!
Rimmel natural bronzer - very subtle bronzer, good for all over face

all the eyeshadows i'll ever need.. not that i'll be wearing much on the cruise, but if i am, it'd be those bright coral colors for sureee! I also decided to bring along my wnw palette in vanity because it is great for creating a gorgeous gold/bronze look! (i'll be reviewing all my wnw palettes when i come back along with tutorials on how to create looks using them)

lastly, i know these arent really makeup related, but these products are my must haves! they are great products all year round, but especially good during the summer days..

Herablife Herbal Aloe, Everyday Soothing Gel 
feels sooo good on the skin, great for making your skin super soft & hyrdrated and also great for sunburns! Plus, aloe helps get rid of scars! i have been using this product for i dont know how many years, but its a must have skincare product for me. i dont know why i've never reviewed it yet, but remind me to do so when i come back!

The Body Shop Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz
The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist
these two face sprays make great refreshers during hot summer days. they instantly wake you up and leave your makeup feeling refreshed. Plus, they also smell super goood!!

And thats it! Im probably not going to be wearing too much makeup on the cruise but i wanted to bring enough just in case. (especially since i heard there were TWO formal nights where we get to dress up! yayyy!) For some reason, i always tend to overpack because im the type of girl who always likes to have choices. I change my mind often so i never know what i'm really going to wear until morning of.. lol  Apart from the formal nights, i think most days i'll go with my normal face routine plus waterproof eyeliner & mascara plus either a lipstick or a lipgloss :)

Anyways, I'll be leaving for the airport in about 6 hours, so goodbye everyone for a week or so! I'll be back soon with a giveaway so dont forget to bookmark Pinkbox Makeup and come back to enter!! Take Care!Blogger Templates
