Everything is better in mini........
Check in travel luggage weights are only 20kgs for my flight to Bali so that restricts me a lot with packing all my favourites.
I have to fit a formal dress and high heels as well as enough of my makeup and toiletries so that I can create my Bali wedding look.
Of course my GHD hair styler will be in tow as well as a good book, bathers, denim shorts and the mandatory pair of Havianas thongs. This packing dilemma leads me to my true belief that I think is appropriate for most aspects of life.........
Everything is better in mini !!!!
I can’t help myself in the weeks before a vacation when I head to Priceline and see all the mini beauty products and hair care. I get like a crazy obsessed person and I need all miniature things to add into my bag for my convenience whilst I am away.
My favourite products to get in miniature are:
Bastiste Dry Shampoo - A staple in any busy woman’s beauty kit, if you don’t use dry shampoo , I urge you to give it a go it will change your life.
Kerastase Shampoo and Conditioner – When you do need to wash your hair these luxurious minis are the way to go.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water – Used on cotton pads this makeup remover will clean away the impurities of the day without needing to rinse in water after so great for travel.
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Gabrielle Chanel Twist and Spray Eau De Parfum Purse Spray – This is the absolute best – the fragrance, the size, the luxury and the fact that you get refills – what’s not to love.
Ulta3 CC Cream, Hydrating Colour Corrector – the coverage, the skincare and SPF30 all in one handy tube, this seriously does the job of so many products - this CC cream is a winner!
Dior Backstage makeup brushes in travel size – I have had these brushes for years and they are still going strong.
Bastiste Hold Me Hairspray – a must to get that hair just right but in a travel appropriate size.
Two Faced Melted Longwear Lipstick in Chihuahua – great matte nude lip colour that will cover you for all occasions.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder – Not in mini but I always love it and its small enough to pack nicely. Great way to set your makeup and keep it on your face in the humid weather.
Baby Wipes – doesn’t matter what brand but they are always handy when travelling.
Gillette Venus mini razor in travel case – love this for size and safe storage so you don’t cut yourself when you dig into your toiletry bag. You can also replace the heads so it’s worth investing in.
Full sized products that will come along with me this time will be my.......
Tarte Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette - there are so many looks I can create with the one palette.
Reef Sun Tan Oil Coconut 15 SPF – love the smell and the way this sits on the skin to give you a glow and some light SPF coverage – never travel without this one.
Nars Orgasm Blush and Laguna Bronzer Duo – full sized but worth bringing as it is great for contouring with both colours being build able for every occasion.
Well I am off to pack properly but I hope you might have found some new products to try or have spotted some old favs on my list.
If you have any suggestions for me for holiday packing please let me know.
I can’t wait to sit poolside and enjoy the cocktails, but I also can’t wait to get dressed up and do my make up to celebrate my friend’s special day.
