TRAVEL ESSENTIALs 

Hi there, 

While travelling i usually forget some or the other things but some things are must have’s and i just cant do without it .most of us have a habit of forgeting things and then regret oh! I should have got that and i do regret not taking things along in trips but with this few stuff i can live on a barren island too 😜.

 

  • One is the Bioderma micellaire water, its light weight makeup remover so you dont need to wash face after that . It removes eyemakeup and waterproof mascara also so well. Its even moisturizing so for dry skin its like a plus point. My skin is too dry and this works perfect.
  • Kama pure rose water face and body mist is a perfect product to travel with, it freshen up tired looking skin. It has a mild rose fragrance which i love, its not too over powering. It comes in small bottle which is easy to travel with. I purchased mine from nykaa for around 250 rs. 
  • Maybelline fit me foundation is lightweight, not too heavy on skin. And while travelling its better to keep minimal makeup and not to go overboard. It comes in a small glass bottle so again easy to travel with.the only draw back is it give medium coverage so for people who prefer full coverage this wont be perfect. There are variety of shades to choose from. Its for 525 rs/- for 30 ml. 
  • Loreal true match concealer – i have been using this from past 3 years now and i have never thought of trying any other concealer after this. It conceals dark circle too well. It comes in a small plastic bottle so again easy to travel with. It is super blendable and give great coverage. Does not feel heavy on skin. Its for 990/- rs for 5.2 grams which is the only con its too expensive. Though i prefer stocking up during the sale. 
  • Mac mineralize skin finish natural is must have when i travel. I love the natural looking coverage it gives. Its super bleadable and it sets makeup too well. 
  • Mac burgundy times 9 eyeshadow palette is my kind of neutrals. I love to carry this palette while travelling as its has shimmer and matte shadows. Many different look can be created. And the palette is tiny so doesnt take up much space.
  • Red is a must have in vanity and this colour is perfect scarlett O’Hara  by sugar. Its a statement red lipstick, a bright red u can wear anytime of the year and will look good on all skin tones. Its a lip crayon and comes with its own sharpner. I like carrying this along coz the shade is perfect for everyday wear. 

 These are my essential which i dont miss when i travel, let me know your essentials while you travel. And plz do leave a feedback on how i can improve my blogs as i am new to blogging world. 

    Lots of love,

    Sofia. 😘

    Easy Breezy smokey eyes…

    Hi!!!

    As the scorching sun has made it too uncomfortable for us,Mumbaikers to go out. Minimal makeup is the only left with us but who doesnt like a smokey eye for that evening look with a little bit of glitter to glam up the look.

    So I thought of creating this look which only requires minimal base with smokey glittery eye and nude lips.

    imp 1

    In summer heavy makeup can melt down so its important to only apply the base where is needed.

    • I started of with a tiny bit of foundation just to the places where i need to even up the complexion.
    • Then a conceler only around my eyes as i have dark circles.
    • For my eyes i used a wet brush for my black powder eyeshadow but even a black gel liner can work well.Using my brush i push the shadow inwards from both the corner leaving an empty hallow space in between .if it becomes too dark adding on a dark brown shade will help it to settle down a bit.i used a wet brush to keep my shadows in place.using a gel liner will surely be better.
    • Then for adding on a glitter to this look we need glitter gluu but its completely o.k to use a wet brush dip in glitter.this way there ll be no fall out .so i filled in the empty space inbetween with glitter .I used inglot loose glitter in shade 86 but any gliiter will do well with black outer corners.
    • Then i applied a very thin line of kajal in my water line anf tight line.smudging it a little.using the black and brown eyeshadow i smudged the liner .and that’s it for the eyes its that easy breezy.
    • To complete of i used mascara aand a highlighter over my brow bone.
    • In summer use of eyebrow pencil should be minimal.so i used a very light stroke to fill in my brows.
    • On cheeks, blush and lots and lots and lots of highlighter to give that summer glow.
    • On lips i have used a nude lipstick.

    All the products used i have listed down below:

    • Fit me foundation in shade 128 warm beige
    • loreal true match conceler in light medium
    • mac mineralize skin finish in medium dark
    • for eyes Lorac pro palette black and brown eyeshadow …can use maybelline gel liner instead
