I'm travelling back to England tomorrow for a whole month!! I can't put into words how excited I am to see my friends and family and stock up on all the things I've missed from home! The reason for going home for a month is because my husband and I are actually relocating to San Francisco, we've been here for 8 months and absolutely loved it. So now we have the required visa's we can move here properly which means we have to go back, sort out all our belongings, bring all the clothes I left behind and also do some boring visa things. Yay!
I'm trying to take as little with me as possible, I mean whats the point in taking loads of stuff with me just to cart it all back and more? Exactly! Make up also weighs a ton and most of my products are delicate little flowers and I just don't want to risk anything smashing whilst travelling, so here is my essential make up which I can not be without for a month...It was so hard picking just one of everything, I like choices!
Face | There is one thing missing from the bunch and thats concealer, so I will have to pick one up from the airport (any excuse eh!) But I couldn't leave my Mac Prep + Prime behind even though I don't use it everyday, its my secret weapon when I need my make up to stay in place. The urban decay naked flushed palette has been a staple for many months and I've just touched pan! Its perfect because bronze, highlight and blush is all covered in one palette.
Mac | Prep + Prime
Hourglass | Immaculate Foundation | Porcelain
Urban Decay | Naked Flushed | Naked
Mac | Mineralize Skinfinish | Light Plus
Too Faced | Sweetheart Blush | Peach Beach
Brows | Eyebrows are now the most important thing on my face, if I forget about them then my face looks weird thanks to my non existent patchy brows. And this is why I need to take these 3 products with me, dip brow to sharpen up those lines, a pencil to fill in and a brow tamer to keep it all in place!
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Dipbrow Pomade | Soft Brown
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Brow Pencil | Soft Brown
Urban Decay | Brow Tamer | Neutral Brown
Eyes | Now this was a tricky one, how do I pick just one palette of eyeshadows? In the end I went with this Charlotte Tilbury one because I love the rose gold look at the moment and I adore the way it looks with my hair. This Stila eyeliner is the bomb.com and I love that I can achieve a super thin outline with this.
Charlotte Tilbury | Luxury Palette | Vintage Vamp
Stila | Stay All Day Eye Liner - Black
Benefit | Roller Lash | Black
Lips | Finally onto lip products and I can not believe I have chosen only two to take with me, although don't be surprised if one or two others work their way into my suitcase! So I picked Honeylove by mac because its the perfect nude and I'm all about nude lips nowadays. I also packed this Lime crime matte lippy in Bleached which is a gorge peach colour that is perfect for summer!
Mac | Lipstick | Honeylove
Lime Crime | Velvetines | Bleached
