THE BASE. Clinique Even Better Glow Foundation, feels lightweight and keeps my complexion looking fresh. Nars Soft Matte Concealer is a newbie to my vanity but already a winner.
BLUSHED. I am taking the No Blush Blush by Perriconne MD & Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush in Euphoric Fusion. The No Blush blush is the perfect peachy tone while the Hourglass one is a rose tone with luminosity.
BRONZED. Since it will be fall in japan I am only packing the No Bronzer Bronzer from Perricone MD. Super easy to blend seamlessly into your base.
EYES. I will be packing my favourite pink tone (Garden Rose) from RMS Beauty, Eye Polish in Lucky from RMS for a bronzed eye & the Mecca 20 & By Terry eye shadow palette (pictured below).
LIPS. Not only are these Ultra Slim Lipsticks from Hourglass incredibly beautiful (yes, I am talking about those gold weapons on the left in the image above) but they are refillable so all I need to do is take 3 of my favourites and switch them into the applicator. I will be taking shades 'I Live For' which is a orange toned red, 'I Always' which is a bright hot pink & 'I Want' Which is a pink toned nude.
EYE PALETTE. Next up is an eye shadow palette. This MECCA20 x By Terry Palette has some stunning pink shades. I am also tossing up between the Naked Heat palette by Urban Decay or Ciate London Pretty Fun Fearless palette.
BROWS. I will be taking my favourite combo of the Clinique Just Browsing & Benefit Goof Proof Brow.
LUMINATOR. This is where Mecca Cosmetica kills the game. Their Multi-Purpose Plumping Balm is a must as is their renowned Lit From Within Balm. Writing this post also made me realise that I forgot their Lit From Within Primer.
LIP CARE. Last month my lips weren't in a good place. I tried every lip product I had to try help but honestly when the Clinique Pout Restoring Night Mask arrived, within a few days of use they were as good as new. I swear by it and I am packing 2.
CLEAN. I will be finishing testing out the Mecca Cosmetica Facial Cleanser while I am away as well as taking these mini Glam Glow Masks. From Nov 9, Mecca will be stocking a Glam Glow Gift Set that includes 3 mini's and one full sized mask so if you are, or you know someone who is a mask fiend like me - get on it!
MASKS. I am also packing lots of moisturising face masks. I have the Moisture Surge Overnight Mask by Clinique, The Hydrogel Eye Masks & Hydrogel Face Masks by Mecca Cosmetica. Super hydrating so no cold weather or planes will dry me out.
SERUMS. I am a sucker for serums so I will be taking the RODIN Face Oil which I have been using for 2 months and love love love. Sadly already half way through and cringing at how much it will cost me to replace it once I am finished. I will also be taking this newbie from Drunk Elephant.
MOISTURISE. The last couple of weeks I have been using the Whipped Cream by Drunk Elephant and have been loving it so I am taking it with me. Ps. If you're yet to try out Drunk Elephant, I got my hands on a gift set that will be available Nov 9 at Mecca which includes these two + a serum!
And that is a look into all the beauty & skin products that I will be packing for my month away from home.
Am I taking any of your favourites or is there anything you think I missed? Let me know below.
