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!






Current Favorites| August & September

Current Favorites| August & September

To start off if you’re wondering why I don’t have a favorites post for May, June or July let me explain. So I got engaged in mid-may, hosted my art exhibition two weeks later and then got married over the first two weeks in August(yes it took me two weeks to do that; I’m asian) while going mad trying to plan my perfect wedding added to that a month of fasting. The only skin care I did was to keep my skin from becoming too dry and I almost never used makeup over this time just to make sure I had fresh skin on my big day. Therefore, even if I wanted I wouldn’t have much to speak of in a favorites post in terms of makeup or skin care. And honestly, I was soo busy with all the planning, redoing my bedroom and just going crazy with anxiety that I never could take a breather and pen down my thoughts as much as I wanted to.

Anyways now being a new bride, I do my makeup so often enough to make-up for all these months so here’s a list of things I’ve been obsessing over lately.

J’adore by Christian Diorimg_1331

I’m obsessed about perfumes and smelling good for the longest time ever. Its one of those things I panic over. I told you guys about my Top 4 all time favorites fragrances. Currently I’ve been obsessed over this one and I am loving it! 😉

Infamous by Marc Jacobs


My current go-to lipstick. I always carry it with me and its been a life saver-stopping-me-from-looking-dead many times kinda fantastic.

Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation by Bobbi Brown

I am not one for heavy foundation on my skin but this one really helps me in coverage and a clean base whenever I need it. I combine it with another foundation while using,keeping it concentrated only to the problem areas.

Urban Decay Naked Palette


Let me be honest and confess it took me almost 1.5 years since I got it to understand the hype about this one. Initially I wasn’t just feeling it. I always thought it wasn’t buttery enough or there just too much fall out and the hype was for no reason but then I really don’t know what changed but I’m currently so obsessed with it. 😉

Punch Drunk by Smashboximg_1334

I always believe that you need one lipstick with a popping color for emergencies. You never know when you need one. Currently this has been mine. It isn’t the best I’ve used but I have really been using it a lot so it had to make the list.

L.A. Splash Glitter Linerimg_1338

I love love love this one. I really wish I had grabbed a few more colors. This can really save the day and I have quite a few days that need saving.

That was my list of current favorites. What has been yours? Share in a comment below. 😀





Shopping Haul: At the Airport

Shopping Haul: At the Airport

Just a month and a couple of days ago I had a transit at Changi Airport, Singapore. Even after spending an hour each at two different burger joints I still had time to kill. I thought I should sit silently and read. However, it did not take too long before the shopaholic in me made a somersault and made its comeback. On my defense, at least I shopped for essentials (mostly!) 😉

This is my first ever ‘Shopping Haul’ post. I really hope you guys would enjoy it and also hope to make many similar posts in future. Share/Like/Comment and let me know what you think of it.

So back to the haul, these were what I bought
