Hands up who’s excited for the weekend!
I am because I’m visiting London this weekend with Dan to celebrate his birthday. We’re going to do lots of touristy stuff and then go to all the bars in the Carnaby street area in the evening. I’ll be doing a little vlog about it next week so look out for that.
So today I’ve been packing and I thought I would share with you my beauty essentials that I’m taking with me
I’m mainly taking these skin care items because they are mini enough for travel, rather then take my full size favourites
These are some mini’s I received for Christmas (you can check out what else I got for Christmas here) and I thought now would be a good time to use them
I’m hoping to get away with not washing my hair while I’m there, but just incase I’m taking my Parlor samples I got in my BirchBox. I’m taking dry shampoo incase my hair needs a boost, and the Mark Hill stuff I’m taking for when I style my hair.
I absolutely have to take my favourite base products! These were in my 2015 favourites and you can watch why I love them so much here
I’m mainly taking the contour kit and Highbeam because they are more travel friendly then my other contours and highlight. I have to take my Rockateur because it my favourite blush ever.
Clearly I’m very indecisive about my mascara. I just love the Miss Manga so much I didn’t want to leave it behind, but I really want to try the Roller Lash and primer combo.
Not that mascara will even matter in the end because I’m taking lashes. I might not use these though because I’m so bad at applying them.
Will I want a smoky eye or a more natural one? I have no idea, which is why I’m taking both.
Same argument as above. Will I want a vampy dark lip, pin up red or a natural nude. I’m so indecisive so I’m taking all these and the kitchen sink. I am a lipstick whore.
And that’s what beauty items I’m taking to London with me. I know you’re probably thinking I’m a bit of a fanny and very incapable of making a decision, I know I am. But there’s nothing worse then wishing you’d packed something and not having it! I also have three outfit choices in my bag too. It’s a good job I’m not trusted with any world decisions isn’t it? On that note I’m off to have a serious word with myself about being an over packer, while I do that, let me know what beauty items are your travel essentials. Are you an overpacker like me or very strict with yourself?
Have a lovely weekend guys!
