What’s coming travelling with me?

I’m going on a four day holiday soon, so I thought I’d share what I’m taking with me, and why I’ve selected these particular items for my makeup routine while on holidays. The key is to take travel-sized items where possible and pack light, while still giving yourself some room for variety.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick Set

While I was at the Sephora Robina Opening the other week (p.s. the store layout is amazing!) I saw this beautiful little set.

Considering how much money, time and effort has gone into my makeup collection over the last two or so years, I decided I’d get an approximate value on my stash. After an hour of cataloging each item (not including skincare, brushes or almost-used up items) into a spreadsheet, I was shocked to discover my collection was three times the cost (RRP) of my initial guesstimate. *insert flying money emoji here*

Festive red lip line-up

As someone who doesn’t love wearing a red lip all that often, I was surprised to find a few in my collection. Today I’m running through their formulas, showing comparison swatches, and sharing my favourite ways to rock a red lip (however rare that is!)
