Usually on vacation you want to relax for the skin, and devote a lot of time to make-up laziness. Therefore, it is enough to take a few proven tools.
Before decorating on vacation, I set the following tasks:
: makeup should adequately tolerate heat, humidity, cold,
flight delay / tsunami / date
2) quick and easy application
3) (where do we have the most photos in social networks, eh?) In general, makeup should provide good photos
primarily due to the perfect skin tone
... and filters
: so that after a couple of strokes of the brush from the beach you can go to the theater.
The tasks are complex but doable. Here are the proven comrades:
1. References to the origins
I’ll immediately list the means that I already wrote about.
1.1. To even out skin tone and SPF protection on the road, I use an excellent BB cream
- Shu Uemura Stage Performer BB Perfector Skin smoothing beauty cream SPF 30 PA ++.Post Link
He tolerates all the hardships of vacation with dignity and from morning to evening maintains skin tone in excellent condition, does not require fixing with powder.
1.2. As a concealer under the eyes and on redness,
there is a multifunctional and lasting remedy Tom Ford Correcting Pen # 01 LightLink to the post
A very convenient product for travel. In combination with BB cream you get the perfect face tone.
1.3. Eyebrows are a fetish. I always emphasize them, so without an eyebrow pencil
Tom Ford Brow Sculptor 04 Espresso - I won’t go out
(even throw out the trash)
I have been in love with him for a year now and still use the same copy of the pencil that I wrote about here.
1.4. It’s easy to “add drama” and red lipstick
can make an afternoon look evening. In my arsenal, the most persistent and problem-free in terms of application (does not even require a pencil) is Serge Lutens Fard a levres # 01.

In general, on vacation I try not to test cosmetics so that there are no disappointments and nerves.There are several tools that I have not written about. So...
2. Nars Shimmer Eyeshadow - Nepal
I want to devote the story about this product to Veronika_Klavas
: some time ago we discussed where it is better to apply shades of a dark solid color
So, take Nepal shades of the color of a sea tan with a small shimmer.swatch
On hand in different lighting conditionsFeature of applying this shade of solo
The Nepal hue (like all similar ones) is very good to use to give a “depth” to the look, to emphasize or slightly adjust the shape of the eye.
You can create the desired effect of easy correction of the shape / size of the eye by correctly setting the chiaroscuro: leave the movable eyelid completely naked, and apply Nepal shadows on the lower eyelid just above the fold and.Koryavyenko drew exactly where I put them in order to slightly enlarge the eye:
Add volumetric carcasses and get natural, but slightly more beautiful than nature gave eyes. In the photo, the 3-D effect is especially important.
Here is such a makeup chip in the style of "nude".Technical characteristics of the
shadows are very worthy:
1) on my eyelids keep color and borders all day, even if applied without a base;
2) do not roll into the folds of the eyelids;
3) are applied with a slight haze, but it is possible to sufficiently layering (for this color);
4) do not dust and are easy to extinguish;
5) the package conveniently opens and closes securely, is equipped with a small mirror, which allows you to brighten the eye in traveling conditions.Output
Use period: more than 6 months
Price: about 1200 rubles
Not all Nars products I liked, but their shadows are cool.
3. Chantecaille Cheek Shade Refill #Laughter. Pressed blush
This is the second Chantecaille blush in my arsenal and, I think, not the last. About cream wrote here
What makes Chantecaille Blush so good:
1) color fastness and application borders in their original form before make-up removal;
2) do not cause inflammation (red pigments are quite comedogenic);
3) perfectly lie not only on powder, but also on cream tonal, and even on bare skin;
4) perfectly give pigment, but allow you to shade yourself into a veil;
5) no matter how dusty brush they try to apply;
6) endless, despite the small volume;
7) fine grinding and delicate blush texture.
Laughter's hue is pinkish red, cool with a natural, slightly damp finish. Well refreshes and suits my color type.swatch

Period of use: more than 3 months
Price: about 3000 rubles (including a reusable cover)
Rating: 5 +++++
If the audit came and asked me to give all the blush except for one, I would leave Chantecaille
5. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara fan volume. The black
This is a rare mass market that has been registered in my cosmetic bag and, looking ahead, gets a solid five.
She was advised by a familiar beauty blogger who, in principle, respects luxury and professional cosmetics.
“Well, since she even advises - you have to try!” I decided.
So what we have from the pros
1) a thoughtful brush with which you can curl and separate the eyelashes;
2) a noticeable volume and elongation (there is twisting, but not very);
3) excellent resistance - I did not cry with her, but laughed to tears - withstood;
4) the quality and composition of the product itself is no worse than a good luxury.Minuses
1) absolutely stupid tube design: it takes up a lot of space, the cap fell out of my crooked pens several times until I got used to it (oh, I put it, washing the table ...);
2) slightly stains the eyelids;
3) slightly glues eyelashes, but the “fan” side corrects this.Swatch

Duration of use: 2 months
Price: about 400 rubles
For such money - super mascara, even in spite of packaging design errors and a small mark.
6. MAC 129SH Universal brush for blush and powder
MAS brushes usually receive reviews as a quality standard. It was because of these reviews that I decided to buy this brush for blush and ... was disappointed.Disadvantages
1) a fairly stiff (compared to Shiseido or Tom Ford) natural black goat bristles;
2) applies the pigment very intensively - this is ideal for baked and slightly pigmented products, but in my arsenal there are none;
3) even after a year of use, it loses 1-2 hairs in the washing process and somehow miraculously manages to leave fragments of hairs on the face in the process of applying cosmetics (where does she get so many from ?!)Advantages:
1) compact size (about 15 cm);
2) the presence of an individual case - convenient for traveling;
3) not bad (but worse than Tom Ford) extinguishes pigment;
4) solidly made handle: does not hang out and does not peel off;
5) the correct form for applying blush and bronzer.
Packing density and diameter:Output
Duration of use: 1 year
Price: about 2000 rubles
An outsider brush of my home kit (I use Shiseido at home), but due to its compact size, individual case and overall adequate function, the MAC brush is allowed to live in a travel cosmetic bag.
7. L'ETUAL Contour brush for eyeshadow №117
Another mass market excellent student in a cosmetic bag.Advantages:
1) a gentle, elastic pile;
2) does not lose hairs;
3) a convenient form that allows you to fine-tune the eye (for the correction of the shape of the eye, this is especially important);
4) perfectly stews and layers.Disadvantages:
1) the handle quickly loses its "presentation";
2) a lot of marriage in the lot: check before buying that the iron tip does not hang out.
Pile size and diameter:Output
Duration of use: 5 months
Price: about 700 rubles
8. the Original Beautyblender Micro.Mini - makeup puff
Beautyblender mania has also come to me. I decided to take a novelty for travel - Micro.Mini.
1) as a “brush” for the eye zone it does not apply
- the concealer is applied too tightly: you need to brush it with your fingers. For the wings of the nose, the size and quality of application is ideal;
2) the sponge is very good for applying cream tonal products of any pigmentation on the face - a small size is not a hindrance to make an excellent face tone;
3) compact and convenient for transportation - I drive it in a plastic container for birush: a minimum of space + maximum benefit;
4) for thorough washing, it needs to be soaked in makeup remover (I have Garnier), then it can be washed up with any soap or shampoo
- do not spend money on special products: in the field, any hotel shower gel will clean your sponge well;
5) over time, the color of the sponge fades slightly, but the quality of the work does not deteriorate.A classic comparison of wet (already faded) and dry brothers:
Duration of use: 2 months
Price: about 1200 rubles
Despite a million brushes for foundation - Beautyblender has become a favorite in home care. Thinking of buying a "big brother" ...
