As I have been traveling around Europe this past semester, these 9 makeup products haven't left my bag.
1. Kiko Milano 3D Hydra Lipgloss: color 01- Clear ($10.00)
I’m seriously obsessed with this and have gone through 2 tubes of it since last month. It feels so moisturizing and isn’t sticky whatsoever!
2. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer ($27)
Ah, the holy grail of all concealers. I’ve used this for the past 3 years and I still haven’t found a concealer that does the job quite like this one. This is ~exclusive~ to Ulta, but you can buy it online as well!
3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz ($21)
This little brow pencil is the perfect thin-ness to get your brows exactly the way you want them. The skinny lead helps you be precise while giving you the color you need. It also has a spoolie on the other end to brush out and blend your brows with. I love setting my brows with the Anastasia clear brow gel!
4. ColourPop Give It To Me Straight Pressed Eyeshadow Palette ($16)
The colors in this 12 shade palette are too perfect to pass up and I love how pigmented they are. You can create a range of natural to night eye looks with this and is surprisingly versatile for the shade range. It’s pretty easy to travel with, although it is a larger palette, it’s sturdy enough to be carried around! (Plus how can you pass up that price!)
5. DiorShow Blackout Mascara ($29.50)
This mascara works so well for me and I find it to give me the exact look I want, every time. Mascara is a tricky thing to suggest for people since most people want different things for their beautiful lashes, but Dior does no wrong in the makeup industry, and you can quote me on that!
6. Charlotte Tilbury FilmStar Bronze & Glow ($60)
This contour/ highlight duo complement each other perfectly and go on so smooth. I love how long-lasting the contour is in this duo and how easy it is to blend out!
7. Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter- Flexitarian ($8)
I will coat myself in this highlighter for the rest of my days. It seriously gives me the best glow out of everything I’ve tried and stays on all day. It’s so affordable for the quality and I’d recommend this (or any shade of the collection) to anyone! It also blends in as a top coat of another highlighter so well!
Tip: put a little bit of this above your brow bone and on your cupid’s bow really enhance your glowy look.
8. Maybelline 24hr Superstay Foundation ($11.99)
Listen, I’ve used every foundation from NARS to Hourglass, and this gem works the best of them all. I am constantly in shock of how this foundation, without fail, beat out every high-end one I’ve tried. The coverage? Unreal. Shade Range? Decent. Price? Incredible. Wear-time? Shocking. Please just do yourself a favor and try this out because it’s probably my favorite product on this list.
9. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray ($32)
This has to be one of the reasons my makeup lasts all day and or all night. I love how this setting spray drys and looks once it drys. They have a few different types of it and different sizes as well, perfect for travel!
