What’s in my honeymoon (travel) beauty bag!

What’s in my honeymoon (travel) beauty bag!

If you’ve been following me on my Instagram page you’d be aware that I just got back from my honeymoon, if you don’t follow me yet you should 😉

Anyways, one of the toughest decisions I had to make while packing was choosing the beauty products I need to take with me. Especially since it was my honeymoon I for probably the first time ever gave soo much importance to my beauty bag. With all the brain twisting decisions I was making in regards to foundations, lotions and other important bottles of wonder I thought why don’t I share it you amazing people so in case you’re having two thoughts about packing or leaving back something this might help. Also you guys give me some amazing ideas, feedback and advice that I can always use the next time I travel.

1. Base
I usually carry my Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere foundation when I travel. It’s my everyday foundation with very light coverage. It comes in a perfect size for travel and is not a glass bottle so I don’t have the fear of it breaking.
I also carry the Chanel Vitalumiere in compact which is a substitute when I don’t want even the lightest layer of liquid foundation on my skin.
I don’t personally prefer a heavy face base of makeup when I travel since I strongly believe letting the skin breathe some fresh never hurt.

2. Eyeliner
I like winging everything in life and I wing my eyes with ease with my Benefit they’re Real push-up liner. It’s waterproof and easy to use so I carry it while I travel.
For the waterline I prefer something with the right amount of pigmentation. However the only one I had at home was my Marc Jacobs Highliner gel crayon, everything else I had run out of so I grabbed it. I’m looking to write a full review on this one soon.

3. Mascara
My bestie always told me to wear some mascara and flutter my eyelashes and how could I not take that valuable piece of advice as I pack for my honeymoon. I chose my Estée Lauder Sumptous Infinite mascara. It gives me the right amount of lash without having to mix it with another one.

4. Eyeshadow
While traveling a good matte natural shadow palette is ideal. I would usually opt for my Too Faced Matte Natural palette however I chose the Dior in sample size this time since it’s so much smaller and has all matte neutral shades.

5.Beauty Blender
This phenomenon known to mankind is what I swear by and I never go anywhere without one. Read my full review on the BeautyBlender HERE.

6. Blush
I obviously took my most beloved blush of all time with me. You can have a look at my review on the MAC Blush in Pinch O’ Peach HERE.

7. Highlighter
Because it’s important to highlight everything important so I could not leave back this limited edition highlighter from NARS.

8. Lipstick
I carried a few different lipsticks so I can keep changing my look everyday.

9. The jump from summer to fall/winter weather never did good to my skin ever despite my favorite season being fall. I carried this travel size body lotion from The Body Shop in Sakura. Its one of the most important products you need to carry with you whenever you fly.

10. I believe if  there’s no lip balm in your handbag at any given time of the day, you are doing life wrong. So how can I not take one with me on the most important holiday of my life. With no one to compete it’s always my Maybelline Baby lips. 🙂

What do you carry when you travel in your beauty bag? Let me know in the comments section below.

Happy Wednesday!

Review: Body Shop Eye Definer in Brilliant Blue

Review: Body Shop Eye Definer in Brilliant Blue

IMG_0072

I am a huge fan of the color blue and it’s no big secret. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it but I like Body Shop’s skin care but am not a huge fan of their makeup. I used to use their compact powder and eye makeup as a teenager but I now know better and I’ve moved past except I just haven’t been able to take this eye liner pencil off my stash.
My first one of this pencil had fallen inside my parents vehicle and gone into oblivion so I had replaced this one a few years back.
It isn’t the best eye liner out there but I haven’t found any other company that makes this gorgeous shade of blue metal. The color is to die for.IMG_0074
Apart from being the prettiest shade of blue liner ever it is also highly pigmented and glides so smoothly which is huge plus and so not like my Dior eyeliner.I mean no one wants to be scrapping through the delicate skin around the eye right.

SWATCH

It is just a regular liner pencil with no fancy or fuss attached to it so I don’t believe it right to be holding high standards for it.
My only problem with it is that it creases big time and the longevity of the liner is very low because of that. But now we have all figured out how to prevent that thanks to all the advancement in the makeup science. 😉

Pink and Metallic Rose Gold Eye Makeup

Pink and Metallic Rose Gold Eye Makeup

Hello lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I apologize for not posting this up on Friday as promised. I’ve been soo busy lately and let me get to why a bit later into the post.

I said I would make a post on an eye makeup I did for the black and silver Indian outfitt I had worn last week. As silver looks really bad on my eyes and skin tone I usually avoid it. Also since my outfit was black I wanted something more summery (I live in a tropical country remember? 😉 ) and feminine eye look. I love my pinks on the eye and this time I wanted to add some blink onto it too.

I don’t have proper pictures of my eye makeup unfortunately since I was not planning to make this post. My apologies and please bear with these horrible lighting/angle pictures (since I had to crop them off selfies :/ )

I put in two pictures since none of them individually has captured all of the colors right. The top picture was taken after the event thus the horrible lighting and the below one was taken somewhere in the middle of me doing my makeup.

This is the look anyways…

Style Diaries: Dazzling in Black Indian Wear

It has been a very very long time since I did a post like this. This was a look I put together for my nephew’s (one of many I have) naming ceremony. It had been awhile since there was an occasion for me to doll up for so I made the most of it.

This was my outfit.

Makeup Revolution Awesome Double Flick Liquid Eyeliner | Review

IMG_2386Since my Makeup Revolution shopping spree I have been testing out products, creating looks and evaluating each product so I can share my review with you guys.

This double flick liquid eyeliner has been something I’ve been reaching for very often since I got it. It is a jet-black felt tip double-sided liquid liner. One side is a thicker felt tip compared to the other. Read more

And its time for another haul post. Benefit is another brand that I have been itching to try for the longest time so I decided to go for it. I placed a mini order and I received a few complimentary samples with it that let me have me have a sneak of some of their other products.

The two products at the top of my list was the they’re real! push-up liner and the mascara. I’ve read reviews on these two products that were half positive and half not so positive so I was really not sure if I wanted to risk spending all that money. Read more

This Dior Crayon Eyeliner Waterproof Is Two-faced | A Review

I am on a roll lately. I have been finishing up reviews I had started a long time ago; the days of procrastination are over hopefully! 😉 I had taken the photographs for this post months ago and I had to hunt for them today. lol

Anyways, I had planned to dish out what I think of this Dior Crayon Eyeliner.

IMG_0080

I had purchased this a little more than a year ago. By the time I got home from the store I was regretting it.I spent quite awhile making my decision between this eyeliner and another Dior eyeliner so this was a total bummer.

My first impression of it (at the store) was of a good pigmented, smooth eyeliner. Read more

MAC Cosmetics recently released their new limited edition collection by Sharon and Kelly Osbourne. Now let me be honest and tell you I have no idea who these people are. Some reading tells me that the mother (Sharon) has her own TV show but then obviously I don’t follow it. Now I am too ill(literally!) to want to read their biography but that didn’t stop me from finding out everything about their limited edition makeup. Read more

A Review: Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner (in Pacific)

Colored eyeliners’ are my absolute favourite and I am always carrying one in my handbag. Since im obsessed with the color blue, not surprisingly its my favourite eyeliner shade too and I have quite a few shades of blue in my collection( My navy blue liquid liner from MAC was part of my daily look during my uni days). Apart from blue I love green,purple and gold eyeliners’ to name a few. My last makeup haul post has me explaining how,when and where I got this Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner so check out the post if you haven’t already. 🙂

Makeup Haul: Chanel, Bobbi Brown and MAC

Makeup Haul: Chanel, Bobbi Brown and MAC

I spent few hours of last friday evening at Takashimaya in Yokohama amidst the branded stores, shoes, bags and of course a floor full of makeup counters. Not too surprisingly I went on a makeup rampage fit to make this Haul post.

IMG_5014.JPG
On another note, I found myself the perfect Kate spade bag. It was perfect until I went shopping (yes, again!) with my bestie on Saturday and showed her the bag to get her approval. After a series of discussion we concluded it wasn’t perfect for me. 😛

Back to this the topic, I went a bit crazy on makeup at Takashimaya. But I can proudly say at least I bought things I actually need rather than buy random products simply because they fascinate me.

What I bought…
