Last month my dad surprised me with an email asking if I would like to go to Las Vegas with him and my mom once I was done with school. Now, as an 21-year-old girl would do, I though about it thoroughly. Do I like to travel? Yes! Do I like flashy and pretty things such as lights and slot machines? Yes! Do I like entertainment- more specifically a show put on my men colored blue and one set to Beatles songs? Yes! Do I enjoy sunshine and vacation? YES!
Clearly the answer was simple and with that the next thing I knew I had a trip to Vegas planned. Flash forward one month later and I'm leaving today!
I wanted to share with you some of the beauty-related things I normally take with me when I travel. Since I'm only going for 4 days I'm not taking too much (or this may be a ton in comparison to others people but for me this is nothing haha).
When it comes to face you really don't need anything that is going to be too heavy.
All I'm bringing facewise is my Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream in SPF 55 (BEST face sunscreen that I wear under my makeup everyday in the summer), my BareMinerals foundation (nothing too heavy in this kind of heat and the minerals will keep my skin from getting too shiny), and my Garnier Fructis Skin Renewal Anti-Puff Eyeroller (I think the name says it all).
For color in my face I have my Soft and Gentle Mineralized Skinfinish by MAC for all of my highlighting needs and Benefit's Coralista because it goes with practically everything. I also popped in a waterproof mascara in case the heat decides to melt everything off at least my mascara will stay in place :)
For lipstick I picked my top 2 favorites of the moment and one crazy color lipstick. I have my YSL Rouge Volupte in #23 Lucious Pink (which happens to be my all-time favorite lipstick so I know it will go with anything I wear) and my YSL Glossy Stain in#7 Corail Aquatique (a glossy coral color that looks natural and lasts all night? yes please!). Finally, since it's Vegas I needed something to POP! and I decided now would be the perfect time to play with the orange lipstick trend so I also brought the Sephora Color of the Year Cream Lipstick in Tangerine Tango Cream
For my final beauty products I just have all of my hair and face cleasing supplies which includes my Clarisonic, Cetaphil, Ziana, eye and face cream, deodorent, a light hairspray, hair oil, and Bumble and Bumble Curl Cream.
I'm really proud of my self for packing to lightly. Normally I take practically all of my beauty products, which could basically fill a Sephora :)
Now all I need is a strong drink and my Game of Thrones book to get me through this flight. Wish me luck!
