Update - What I'm Taking to Singapore

Operation Bag Pack is underway!

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I'll be off to Singapore in a few weeks. Being the girl scout that I am, I stressed about what to pack even before we received our booking confirmation. I picked out a stroller, had name tags made, set aside the clothes I wanted to take with me, and even tied little pink ribbons to my bag so I would know it was mine. I was a packing superstar!

Then I hit a wall. The most stressful task turned out to be picking out beauty products. You see, I promised myself I would only take what would fit into the two beautiful blue bags you see below.

It took me a while to decide, but I finally narrowed it down to the following products:

1 Eyelid Primer
  • E.L.F. Eyelid Primer in Sheer

2 Eyeshadow Quads
  • Ulta Eyeshadow Quad in Good Girl
  • Maybelline EyeStudio Eyeshadow Quad in GD-1 Autumn Spirit
1 Single Eyeshadow
  • NYX Eyeshadow in 01 Black
3 Eyeliners
  • E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner in Ash
  • E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner in Coffee
  • NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in 918 White Pearl
1 Lash Curler
  • Shu Uemura Lash Curler
1 Mascara
  • Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara

1 Primer
  • X-Out Shine Control
1 BB Cream
  • Skin79 Super Plus Beblesh Balm
1 Contouring Kit
  • E.L.F. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in Blushed/Bronzed

1 Brow Gel
  • Ardell Brow Sculpting Gel

  • Maybelline Baby Lips
2 Lip Glosses
  • James Cooper Jazzy Collection Lip Gloss in LGF-004
  • L'Oreal Paris Glam Shin 6H in Creamy Peach
1 Lip Stick
  • Fran Wilson Mood Matcher in Orange

I actually practiced going through my days with only these products. With the help a few of my favorite Youtube gurus, I was able to create a few looks that I found to be perfect for Summer.

That, however, is for another day.

What products do you take with you when on vacation?

'til next time,
