Travel Makeup Case - face products

This is incredibly belated since I have had limited internet access, however, better late than never, right?
I posted a video about a week ago showing the eye/lip products I packed on this 5 week holiday.
To be honest I didn't use a lot of those...

However, I packed my face products more effectively *pats self on back*
Here's what I brought:

Foundations: I brought a sheer everyday option that also doubled as my moisturizer - Dior HydraLife tinted moisturizer.
Also packed Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation for nights out and because I want to use it up.
Concealer: Bobbi Brown Creamy Corrector in Light Peach, which is what I use under my eyes every day. Also brought along the Creamy Concealer because it's on its last leg and I want to use it up... but I ended up using the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer the most just because it's so convenient with the two shades I can mix to create the perfect shade and it lasted longer on my super oily skin.

Powder: I brought Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder to set my foundation, MAC StudioFix Powder for any touch-ups or for a heavier coverage (but to be honest I barely used this), and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural which I hate to use as a setting powder because it has zero oil control, but when used by itself just with a bit of concealer on a bare face, it is quite lovely and perfect for a low key minimal makeup day.

Bronzer: Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel, and Benefit Hoola (a powder and a cream to cover all my bases... the Chanel was lovely even by itself when I couldn't be arsed to put makeup on but wanted just a hint of colour and dimension to the face).

Blush: NARS Madly and MAC Well Dressed

Misc.: Dior Amber Diamond for any highlighting, MAC Fix+ for a quick refresh

Ta Da!

That's what I brought along.
I am now back in Munich, Germany at my friend's beautiful apartment trying to get settled and cope with the cold... I left Romania at 35 degrees Celsius and landed here to 12. FML.

Hope you're having a great week!

  10. I was in Munich at this time of the year last year and it was also pretty cold, about 10 degrees Celsius and rainy. I was so unprepared, I only had a couple of light cardigans with me since I didn't expect the weather to be cold. I had to make a quick trip to

Just thought it was cool that I came across your blog and youtube!
