You might have seen my post a few days ago about being in the midst of moving to a new apartment and the good news is, we’ll be getting the keys tomorrow and either tomorrow or Friday night, I can officially move into my apartment!
Since I had to spend the week in a hotel, like a proper beauty addict, I took the care to pick what I packed with me to bring to the hotel, especially since I had to go to my internship and I had a job interview this week as well. So I thought to myself, why not write about it? The only other post like this I’ve done was my collab with Savannah but that didn’t really have much about makeup since I don’t tend to carry any with me!
Without further ado, let’s get started! This is what I packed to stay in a hotel Sunday through Friday. I tried to stick to my essentials and only get what was strictly necessary, but I’m sure you can see I went a little crazy with the lipstick. It’s what’s to be expected, right?
Starting with the eye stuff, I packed my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette because it’s my absolute favorite palette, as well as my MUA Spring Break palette, since I’ve been wanting to try it, along with my OFRA Bliss Eyeshadow & Highlighter and my MICA Beauty Eye Primer. I brought my Benefit They’re Real! Push-Up Liner, my Rimmel Scandal Eyes Liner, and my all-time favorite mascara, Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes.
For my face stuff, I brought the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter, my go-to concealers, NYX Dark Circle Concealer and Evelyn Iona Concealer, a foundation I’ve been loving lately, CoverGirl Clean Whipped Creme, Dr. Jart+ BB Beauty Balm as a back up, yourMinerals translucent setting powder, Ben Nye Luxury Powder (AKA the famous banana powder) in Buff, Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser, and my new favorite product, Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer.
As far as tools go, I brought my knock-off beauty blender (that I believe I got at Ulta), an eyelash curler (probably elf) and the Eco Luxe 10 piece brush set from bhcosmetics. I picked this set because it’s easy to travel with and it has a great variety of brushes, but I totally forgot it doesn’t come with an angled brush so my brows have been neglected this week.
Last but not least, my favorite part: lipstick! I obviously brought way more than I’d need for six days but hey, it never hurts to be prepared, right? I brought a ColourPop lip primer and two ColourPop Lippie Stix in Frida and Bichette, my trusted MAC lipsticks in Velvet Teddy, Ruby Woo and Impassioned, a Clinique lipstick in Red-y to Wear, my lovely J.cat Beauty Lip Stain in Hikilicious, Little Mix by Collection Lipstick in Jade, Kat von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Underage Red, Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 104, Sephora Rouge Cream in Mr. Lover 10, and lastly, Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Berry!
So that’s everything I packed for my week “away”! What do you guys think? Do you bring more or less makeup? Let me know in the comments and don’t forget to follow me on instagram!
