#bblogger on the go – The Essential Makeup Bag


You guys, I am off for one week, going back home to Milan and thought it was a good time for me to show you what I’ll bring in my makeup bag. As the majority of girls, I am a massive over-packer. For one week I manage to pack way more than I actually end up using, and this include make up and bushes. Just to give you an idea, last time I went home for Christmas, my mum ended up sending me stuff by mail cause I couldn’t fit anything more in my suitcase. *Hides self in shame*

So for this time I decided to pack just the essential, leaving space from some Italian food goodies (Pocket Coffee any one?!). When I go home I just end up relaxing and spend time with friends and family, so there’s no need of me to bring on the big guns, as simple make up or no make up days are in order. Enough with the ramble, here’s what I packed.

For skincare I’m bringing La Roche-Posay Effeclar Duo (the old formulation) and my trusty  Nuxe Reve de Miel to keep my pout hydrated on the flight and before bedtime. For base I am going with *L’Orèal Code Lumière BB Cream, a brightening lightweight cream which is best applied with your hands – see what I did here?! Then my favourite contour powder the *Maderas Rubor in no.1 Tierra with my trusty M.A.C. 116 brush. For highlighter I am taking *Wild About Beauty Ultra Dewy Glow Stick in 01 Winston, and of course Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer. Then finally, for eyes I am taking the Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil which is great for traveling, as it has a brush on the lid to tame your unruly friends, as well as eye definer. Last but not least, I shopped my stash and brought back my beloved Dior Palette in 440 Sunset Café, perfect to create different everyday makeup looks finished off with M.A.C. Gigablack Lash.

Do you think is a lot?!
