I absolutely hate overpacking and always make sure I give myself enough time to pack smart. This post goes through what makeup I packed for a weekend away in the city.
First thing to note is that the only “big” event on was a dinner, which only really affected what foundation I chose. So what did I pack?
For the base…
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 – my holy grail primer
NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection Hydrating Glow Tint – evens my skin and keeps it real
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – conceals and perfects anything the tint couldn’t
Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Palette – set, highlight and bronze all in one
Mecca Cosmetica Enlightened Illuminating Balm – for that extra pop of highlight
RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Promise – for a youthful and dewy blush thats doubles and lipstick
For the eyes…
In my handbag…
Hourglass Oxygen Mineral Powder (discontinued) – for on the go touch ups
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Palais Royal – a rich wine colour for a bold lip or stain
To be honest, I wouldn’t change much for a beach getaway other than a brighter lipstick choice and maybe swap to a bronze shadow stick instead of taupe. So there you have it, what I pack for a weekend in the city! Hope this gave you some tips on what to pack and how to make the most out of little as possible.
