The one additional reason why I love to travel is the fact that I love wondering around the Changi DFS beauty aisle deciding what to buy. I had planned to get the Chanel foundation as mine was finishing. The CDP lipstick was something I told myself I would get and the rest were impulse buys.
I was surprised to see Burberry, NARS and Make Up For Ever available at Terminal 2. Unfortunately I didn't see anything I wanted then so my wallet escaped with relatively little damage.
Below are stuff I brought. After two trips to Bali I learnt not to bring so much makeup. The steaming humidity isn't forgiving to heavy makeup.
I chose items that would stay intact in the humidity. The perfume was not a good idea, I didn't use any at all. I didn't want to attract anymore mosquitoes that I had to.
The laid back feel of Bali just didn't make bright lips feel right so I chose muted natural colours instead.
For my complexion, I used my trusty Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet over this sample bottle of Make Up For Ever Primer in #0 which I discovered was a great combination. There was no need for powder as I wanted as natural a base as I could. My Addiction Blush Stick in Rose Bar and Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush Wand in Manet gave me a sheer flush that stayed put.
Eyes looks were kept simple. I love using cream shadows because they are easy to tote around and long lasting. Plus I didn't have to bring any eye shadow brushes, I used my fingers to blend. Eye brows and eyeliner are very important to give me a natural yet polished look.
What do you normally bring for beach vacations?
