Today I am sharing what is in my make up bag for my city break to Milan! I actually go tomorrow, which is crazy! I have wanted to visit the cathedral for the longest time and now I get too! If you wanna see photos check out my Instagram @toriiitoriii I also insta story excessively!
For a base I have chosen my trusty Benefit Porefessional, this is a great long lasting primer which I know helps my make up last all day. As for a foundation I have chosen MAC Studio Fix Fluid, although this is kind of heavy and big it’s a must! I will sacrifice washing my hair in order to have good foundation for 2 days! But seriously, this is such a good foundation! To conceal under my eyes I am taking Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer which really hydrating and brightening. To add some extra colour to my face I’m going to be using the Tanya Burr Contour Stick in the shade medium/dark, I use this as a cream bronzer along my forehead. And then just incase, I’m taking the Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer just incase any spots pop up while I’m away!
For mascara I like to make sure my lashes are bold and stand out as I never wear eye liner, the best mascara I have found is the Superstar double ended mascara from Loreal. This creates long thick volumous lashes! And for my eye shadow I’m going to be keeping it fairly simple, I always over pack when it comes to eyes shadows so for Milan I am taking the Tanya Burr Cosmetics palette in Birthday suit and a Colour Pop shadow in the shade Game Face which is a really nice metallic coppery shade. For my brows I’m going to rely on my trusty Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow as I’ve been neglecting it recently and then the Loreal Brow Plumper to set them.
To set my foundation and Concealer I will be relying on the Rimmel Stay Matte which is my number 1 favourite! To bronze I will be using Hoola Bronzer from Benefit as this is he perfect shade for me with a tan! As I have a tan I want a highlighter which will enhance it so I have picked Warm Bronze by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. For my blusher I will be using Benefit Galifornia which is a beautiful coral shade (and it smells amazing). And lastly for my lips, I’m going to keep it very simple and go for a red lip! MAC Fashion Legacy is a staple for me when I’m out and about as I know it’s long lasting and doesn’t budge. And Charlotte Tilburg Red Carpet Red just needs a little bit of love, it always ends up getting left behind so it’s coming to Milan!
And there you have it! These are my staples for my trip, asking as I don’t end up cramming anything in last minute this could be the lightest I’ve travelled!
