My travel makeup essentials

When you travel, you want to take some makeup with you that doesn't take a lot of space, that's not very expensive (you don't want to be upset if you lose it, or forget it), and that lasts all day on your face.

I have finally managed to find the perfect makeup products for this. Trust me, I'm from Spain, and this makeup will definitely resist anything. It's water-proof/heat-proof/melt-proof/Spain-proof.

Rimmel's Stay Matte Primer *
To be honest, this isn't completely necessary, but if you have room in your bag, I totally recommend bringing this.

Maybelline's Dream Pure BB Cream *
Maybelline's are my favorite BB creams. I cannot live without them. They are what helps me look like a human, instead of a zombie. One of my favorite products ever.

Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder *
This is my favorite face powder. I love how it feels, and it works amazingly.

 * As you can see, I use a few mattifying products. I wouldn't be able to judge the mattifying power of each of them separately, but my face has been incredibly matte since I use the three of them together. I sometimes get home after a long ride in the subway and I feel my face all sweaty and disgusting, and then look in the mirror and you can't even tell. At all. So as I said, I don't know if one of them is amazing and the rest don't do anything, but I do know that by using the three of them... you get amazing results.

Maybelline's Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow: Pink Gold
I love Color Tattoos eye shadows for many reasons: they are incredibly long-lasting, they are pigmented, and you don't need any brushes to use them. I love this shade for the summer.

If you don't trust me on how good they are, I remember I wore this to a theme park last summer. We were out all day, and it rained sooo much. We were soaking wet  and when I got home I was so tired that I just went to bed without removing my makeup. And when I woke up the next day... this was still on my eyelids!!

Maybelline's Colossal Volume Waterproof Mascara
Maybelline's Colossal Volume is my favorite mascara in the whole world. I use the waterproof version in the summer because it's incredibly hot in Spain and I want it to be able to resist any sweating. This mascara will give me amazing eyelashes and will last all day.

Sephora's Khol waterproof eye pencil
Maria spent some time at my house last year. We went to sephora one day and they had these on sale, so she bought one. I loved it! So I had to get one for myself too! I can't believe what a good deal we got for just 5€. It lasts all day, it resists everything and it is SUPER pigmented.

Maybelline's baby lips: Strike a rose
I love baby lips. They have done miracles to my lips. Ok, this won't last all day, but you can keep it in your bag and put more on when you need to. I've been loving this shade this summer. It's like a bright beautiful pink, and it smells so yummy.

Maybelline's Dream Touch Cream Brush
This brush is super long-lasting too. It may not last 24 hours like the other products, but it's the best I have tried and I love it. I use the shade 05, but my skin is super pale, so you may need a different shade.
