The minimal makeup pouch experiment: results.

I am sorry I am a bit late on posting about this, my pics were stuck in my camera.
So I stuck to my resolutions when I went on week-end abroad last week, and I packed only a few makeup bits. Here's the very practical pouch I used, and the producs it contained.

What did I take along with me? Moisturizer, foundation, bronzer, blush, mini UDPP, 2 brushes (bronzer/powder and blush/contour), mascara, a touche eclat style corrector and a bunch of liner pencils and eyeshadow pencils.
No eyeshadow at all.

The results? Well the idea of taking pencils is very appealing but it actually didn't work that well. Maybe it's the products I have (mostly from Gosh) but blending was hard to do and creasing wasn't far away, plus color payoff wasn't that great.

Next time, I'll take a couple of paintpots or any other cream shadows instead.

But one product t I re-discovered and loved: my Gosh liner in Banana. It's a pretty yellow gold that I used as a highlighter in the inner corner and on the brow bone, and it really looked great. So this one is definitely a keeper, even when I am not travelling.

What do you take with you when travelling?
