I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here on the blog, but I’m going to Scotland SO soon. Like I’m knee deep in laundry soon. It’s going to be the best, and I haven’t been to that side of the world since I was 16 years old — a LOT has changed since then! So get excited for some Scotland photos, but until then get excited for some good ol’ travel makeup and skincare.
First thing of note is this awesome travel bag from Sephora by the brand Bouffants and Broken Hearts. Obsessed with it. I have a makeup pouch, but not nearly as efficient as this thing which has labels on each section for brushes, makeup, jewelry, and skincare. Ayayay I love me some organization.
As you can see I’m packing pretty light — I’m a simple girl when it comes to makeup! I got my basics — foundation, concealer, my Glossier cloud paint and boy brow (get 20% off your Glossier orders here), some bronzer and mascara. I also threw in a lipstick because you never know! Topping it off I brought some to-go face masks for day after and day before the plane. That shit’s bad for yo skin! Gonna extra moisturize to prep!
My skincare routine is a little bit bigger, but thanks to this Pixi Double Cleanser I think that’s going to cover me for the most part! I’ve also got my #1 moisturizer — the ultra repair cream from First Aid Beauty. I couldn’t go a day without this stuff. I am still figuring out a way to get my toner in. I may just toss my Pixi Glow Peel Pads in my bag since the container is too big for my toiletry bag.
For my hair I’m bringing Dove Shampoo + Conditioner in my lil gotoobs. I’m also bringing my Young Again oil by Kevin Murphy which is the biggest godsend for my hair. I squeeze a tiny bit into my palms and work them through my hair after getting out of the shower. It protects your hair from heat and the elements, while also making it look nice and shiny with no frizz! After drying my hair I use a smaller amount to tame fly-aways and to get my hair to stick together as opposed to being a frizz ball. It is amazing. Not leaving the USA without it.
And that is one part of my packing covered! Here I come, Scotland!
