Okay lambkins, just a quick one because I am about to catch a plane.
I’ve been doing a lot of traveling recently and if the official family motto of Clan Plumcake is Deus Juvat and the unofficial one is Psycho Killer Qu’est-ce Que C’est then the practical one must be Pack Light (yeah, if I had more than 20 minutes I would figure out how to say that in Latin, but I don’t.)
With that in mind I’d like to turn you on to what’s in my makeup kit when I travel.
MAC 217 Blending Brush — THE blending brush. Accept no substitutes.
MAC 266 Angled Brush — I like using an angled brush for eyeliners, and this one is my favorite.
Rimmel Colour Rush Quad in Smokey Noir — Or any other decent, inexpensive gray quad. I like grays because you can play with them for day or evening and don’t have to be too careful, which is handy if you’re applying on a plane, train or automobile (though ideally not while operating one)
Just Bitten Lip Stain –in Forbidden plus one other more intense color, usually Gothic
Physicians Formula Cream Liner Trio for Brown Eyes –Yes I have blue gray eyes but this interlocking trio comes with an emerald, black and indigo/violet liner. Excellent as standalone liners and can be smudged on as cream eyeshadow too.
L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara –I am CRAZY for this mascara. It doesn’t smudge or run. Because it tubes, when it does come off you can just brush it off your cheek. I’m not sure when double-layer mascara stopped sucking but this definitely doesn’t.
Milani Bee Rich Lip Gloss — I use this as a gloss but also a cream blush. Cheap too!
