My makeup bag for a three-week holiday


Hello Darlings! How are you doing? Today I have a little post to amuse you. Right before leaving on holidays to Argentina I snapped a few photos of hat I was taking with me makeup wise. Yes, doing this definitely threw me in the face how much make up I wear :P
In the above picture you can see all the items sparse on the floor. Just to make it look even worse, I'd add a short general description of the items (if you're interested to know something in particular, please ask your question in the comments!) Top row: Primers, foundation, pressed powders Blush and 2 lipsticks. Following row: concealer jar, pencil sharpener, bronzer/blush/brighter trio, concealer wand, highlighter, 2 lipglosses, Following row: Eyebrows cake powder, several eyeliners, eyeshadow palette, three single eyeshades, Mascara.
And you want to know the worst?? I consider these my "basics"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Eventually I decided not to take with me the trio from Too Faced Leopard Love, because the brighter was empty, I already had a blush and the bronzer didn't make too much of a point since I wasn't tanned enough to wear it.


This is the bag I took containing all the items above mentioned. And you know what? I do not consider this a large makeup bag! (but for my sister it was huge!).

Now I can say I used absolutely everything I took with me. Of course I could have done without many of the things, but you know i'm a makeup junkie :P

Let me know your opinions, question and eventually what do you carry or not carry when you go on a trip!
Love,
Nati

    2. Ah, y tengo fotos usando el brow powder the NYX están tomadas muy de cerca así que no se ve el efecto. Lo ideal sería un par de fotos antes y después para poder ver el resultado. Sería una buena idea para un post.

    1. Oh, Melissa, your comment is really sweet, Would you believe I really limited myself while packing? lol! Well, I had to have enough options for Christmas, NewYear's eve and a couple of parties, would that be enough of an excuse to carry a little "extra" makeup?? , ha ha ha !

  5. I guess I'm like your sister, this seems a lot make-up to me! :-) (but at the end this make-up bag doesn't seem so big...!) Fortunately, my only problem is nail polish addiction! :-)
