I recently went on a trip to NYC. It wasn’t vacation but I packed my beauty products just like I would had I gone on a vacation. If I am going away from my full stash for any amount of time, be it one day or a month, I want to have all of the products that are not going to fail me in any way. These are the things I recently had in my carry on when I boarded my plane and they all happen to be found at Ulta. I love Ulta because you can get all the good stuff from the drugstore brands as well as some great higher end brands. It is my personal belief that great products can be found at any price point.
IT Cosmetics CC Cream is one of those no fail wonders. No matter how I apply it my skin always comes out looking even and never cakey. Perfection in a pump. I even use it as concealer if I need to.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation is actually a powder foundation so it isn’t necessary to have anything under it, but I find that it is PERFECT for setting my under eyes and my t-zone. My skin looks poreless and perfected everytime.
One of my all time favorite blushes is LORAC Exposed. It is the perfect peachy pink with a bit of a sheen and it really makes my face have that fresh, young, healthy look.
A great matte bronzer is hard to find and NYX Matte Bronzer is perfect. I don’t do heavy contouring but I do use this for a light contour as well as to add color to my skin.
Anastasia Brow Wiz is a great brow product that takes up little to no room and is thin enough to make believable brow hairs.
Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette is a great mixture of easy, neutral colors. If you are looking for a light pink lid color or a deeper smoky eye, this palette has you covered.
My VERY VERY VERY favorite mascara of ever is Too Faced Better Than Sex. It volumizes, elongates and makes my lashes look like they have some oomph. I haven’t found anything I like more and I don’t think I ever will at this point.
Butter London LIPPY Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayons are amazing. I own every color and I think they are perfect for throwing in your bag and touching up on the go!
There you have it. That is the makeup I packed for my most recent trip. All great staples to have in your arsenal! What is one beauty product that you love that is a vacation beauty must have!
