Hello again my lovely readers! Today's a very exciting day for me since I'll be leaving for my lola's (grandmother) hometown. As I'm typing this, it's 8:30 in the morning and I'm halfway through the last minute packing. My flight to Cebu is at 1pm, then to Silay at 6pm, then it's going to be about an hour till I actually get to my final destination. Thinking about it is exhausting that's why I decided to take a short break and blog my last post till I get back home.
You see, my maternal grandmother is ilongga. She comes from a small fishing town in the Negros Occidental area. It's actually called Cadiz City and is about an hour away from Bacolod City. My lola goes "home" every two to three years but I haven't been back home in about twelve years. I'm pretty psyched about going back home. And I realize that my thoughts are kind of jumpy from all the excitement. But anyway....
This post isn't only about that announcement, it's also about the makeup I'll be bringing along. I always used to end up bringing a ton of useless makeup whenever I travel. Sometimes I bring up to 2 kilos of makeup because I insist on bringing my palettes! Then when I get to my destination, I'm caught up in all kinds of activities that I forget to use the makeup I brought along! *ugh*
This time I decided to keep things simple. I'll be gone for only a week anyway. So let's get started on the travel makeup I have, shall we?

First things first. I suggest you choose a makeup kit big enough to handle all the makeup tools and products you'll be bringing along. This is so that you won't have a ton of small sized bags to lug around. I chose this colorful polka-dotted zippered makeup pouch from a brand called Tickles. I actually have this in three sizes. The one I chose is in the size medium. As you can see, everything I planned on bringing along is inside my orange polka dotted pouch.

|Brought along my "tools of the trade".|
|Unbranded lip brush and my Urban Decay lip brush.|
|LOVE! NYX Nude on Nude Palette.|
|Mascara. Eyeshadow primer. Liquid liner. Pencil liners. DEADLY WEAPONS!|
|Three lip essentials.|
|MAC Studio Fix powder foundation in NC35 & Ever Bilena foundation cake in 01|
|NYX cream blush in Natural, NYX concealer in a jar in Medium and Ever Bilena powder blush in Earth|
So there you go girlies. Those are the essential makeup products and tools I'll be bringing along on this trip, aside from my skin care products of course! I hope you enjoyed my post even if it was rather long. I'll be leaving you guys with some questions down below.
- What are your travel makeup essentials?
- Do you prefer bringing powder, cream or liquid foundations when you travel around?
- If you could bring along only 1 (ONE) makeup product, what would it be?
PS : I'll be gone from January 18, 2012 (1pm) till January 24, 2012. I'm not sure if there'll be free WiFi at the hotel we'll be staying at so I can't promise you guys that I'll be updating much. See you when I get back! <3
