My makeup bag has a ton of makeup, some of which I only reach for once in three months. However, there is a handful of products that I use on a daily basis, which are also the ones that I take with me on every trip. With a semester-long university exchange coming up, I am slowly starting to write my packing list.
This week I was lucky enough to find Butter London’s new Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara! The name is a mouthful, but it’s totally worth trying out.
If you’ve been reading this blog for some time now, you know that I am completely obsessed with complexion makeup, like foundation and primers. I’ve heard a lot of wonderful things about the Bare Minerals Powder Foundation, but after my good friend Lauren recommended it to me a few days ago and I found a great starter kit at Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty, I couldn’t resist buying it. How is it possible to save any money for travel when there is so much makeup around me?
Hello hello! A few days ago I stumbled upon some random slideshow of famous actresses and singers without makeup, going about their days and doing their stuff. Some of them looked completely different from their Red-Carpet faces, and that didn’t really surprise me. I looked at them and thought, “Wow, she does look better with makeup on, poor lady.” But then there were these other photos, which I looked at and smiled. The stars didn’t look ugly, grumpy or gray – and there was one common pattern among them that made it so.
