Pack with Me: Makeup I’m Taking to New York City

Right now I’m packing for my lifelong dream destination: New York. The most important thing for me when I travel is lasting power and quickness. I won’t be spending much time at all doing my makeup, I’d rather go out and explore the city. So, I’m going to take with me the things that I know work for me and allow me to get ready in the least amount of time possible.

It’s also important for me that I take things with sturdy yet not space consuming packaging or that I’m not going to be bothered if they broke. That’s the only reason I’m not taking my cheek parade from benefit with me. The colourpop highlighter was already broken when it came to my house, but thanks to the super shock cheek formula I was able to press it with my finger really quickly. I know if it happens again I’m still going to have a perfectly usable product still. I’m not bringing any eyeshadow, specifically to save time. But I’m going crazy with the lipsticks since it takes no time at all to apply. I don’t know about you, but I love a bare face with a bold lipstick. Im taking my two concealers only because each of them is to the last drop. And if there’s one thing that I’m not willing to compromise on is covering my eye bags. Especially when I’m jet lagged.
