I figured I'd share what I brought with me on my honeymoon. Since we drove up to Vancouver, I didn't need to pack up tiny little bottles of liquid and blah blah blah. I tried to keep things simple, but we were also going out to nice dinners, etc. (and I had to meet a Bandit!) so I also brought a couple of "showstopping" lipsticks. Three, to be exact. Don't judge.
|NARS Sheer Glow in Ceylan, and Bobbi Brown corrector in Peach.|
First, for the face. I ended up using the NARS foundation exactly once, ha. This is because I bought the Annabelle BB powder while I was in Vancouver, and also...I've just been going out with less face stuff. *shrug* It's a stage, I guess. I have been loving the Bobbi Brown corrector, though, so it came with me.
|MUFE Aqua Brow #25 (which is asdflkje amazing!), theBalm Nude'Tude palette, L'Oreal Voluminous Power Volume mascara, Benefit Magic Ink, Urban Decay Bourbon, and NARS Eye Shadow Base.|
This time I even have swatches of theBalm's Nude'tude palette, which was gifted to me by the gorgeous Danielle of the Bloomin' Beauty Blog.
|I don't think I've ever used the brush.|
|All swatched with a finger on to bare skin, no primer.|
|Direct light (Ottlite).|
|Senna Cosmetics Très Jolie, Rouge d'Armani 400, 510, 609, and MAC lip liner in Cherry.|
For lips and cheeks, I stuck to one blush - a soft, flattering pink - three Armani lipsticks (because of their lasting power), and a red lip liner, to make sure my red lip was really clean. I did wear each lipstick at least once, though I also, erm, bought a handful of Marcelle lipsticks. *cough* More about those later.
|EcoTools mini eye brush set, Shiseido curler, Real Techniques angled brush (for brows), EcoTools brow brush, Ecotools Blush Brush.|
The skincare stuff was composed of mostly minis and travel sized items that I have accumulated - products that I use on a daily basis, as well, because I don't like trying to use all kinds of new items at once. Recipe for disaster, that! So I kept it simple and small. Overall, I was quite proud of myself. And we had a lot of fun! I have a lot of Canadian goodies to show you all, as well as some items from the wedding that I haven't had a chance to review yet. And another "Beauty of Science" post is stirring around, as well. Woohoo! It's nice to be back.
