What's in my cosmetic bag? Travel edition I TIPS

Hello to all of you! Tomorrow will be 24th of December so it means Christmas came really fast this year hasn't it? Also, tomorrow me and my grandmother will be going to other city. To celebrate Christmas with my cousins and their parents. We will be taking a train so it will be fun. And with that I want to start the topic which I will be talking today.
When it comes to travel lets all agree - at the beginning we all get headaches what to bring with us, what to wear and many more. Personally, I get headache only with calculating time. I mean - calculating how much I will spend time getting ready, when I need to leave my house and etc. Because my biggest problem is a fear of being late. I don't become crazy while choosing what to wear, I get crazy when I don't make certain things on time.
Anyway, I won't be talking about time, clothes or what makeup you should do on journey day. I will tell what I am bringing with myself in my cosmetic bag all the time. So enjoy reading if you're interested!

This is the first glance to my cosmetic bag which I will be bringing with me on little Christmas journey. This is the PICARD mini leather bag in really soft baby pink color which I love SO MUCH! Plus it is really spacious so I could put a lot of stuff in there. Even though it is high-priced it is still a really convenient bag. And the design. Oh my God.... When I first saw it. I was more happy than buying new  phone or etc.
Anyway, for a journey that is more than one day always pick a larger cosmetic bag than a pencil case. Because you don't know what will happen and you will need.


 Moving onto the inside. Don't even dare to forget your toothbrush and toothpaste! They are mainly the most important from all the things because I don't think there are people who likes to have bad mouth smell and that uncomfortable feeling on their teeth. The toothpaste I always bring with me is MARVIS whitening mint toothpaste mini version. Honestly, the best toothpaste I've ever had. Not too strong mint and not too weak. Then for lips, especially in autumn and winter don't forget a lip balm or butter, because it is better to have soft moisturized lips than dry and broken lips. I can't live without NIVEA lip butter original, so I really recommend this one. There are also a blueberry, vanilla and raspberry types. Which smells heavenly! And for hands. It is always a good idea to have a hand cream with yourself all the time. Well more for those people who likes to have soft hands. I recently started using this IKONA hand cream with passion fruit (and it is only in Lithuania). And I'm not disappointed with this one, because it moisturizes your skin really well and makes them soft like marshmallow. Plus the smell isn't too strong and is really fresh. Which I like the most.

 The next phase is skin care. It doesn't require much and basically all you need is wipes to remove your makeup if you are wearing it, toner and moisturizing gel or lotion. The wipes I have with me is Comodynes make-up remover travel edition wipes for oily skin. It takes my makeup really well and it is easy to carry with you!
To take care of my skin and make it ready for the day or evening I use my Inglot multi-action toner for combination/oily skin. Smells so fresh!!! And cleans your skin really well. And then I use my Mary Kay ''Botanical Effects'' Moisturizing Gel which is for all skin types and includes dragon fruit so you may guess that the smell is oh well - amazing!
 Also have a perfume or body mist. I mean maybe it's just my opinion but with that you will feel better and well I love fragrances so mainly this why I put it here. So the fragrance I use at the moment is from Bershka which I discovered recently. The ones I'm  having is white romance and it smells like candies and cotton candy. Plus the size of it is really comfortable to have in cosmetic bag whenever you are travelling. And the body mist is Body Shop vineyard peach scent. Oh God I love it so much and I do recommend it to all who likes peaches. Duh.. :D
 Okay the makeup part starts from here. As much as I love makeup I have to say that don't take too much on your trip. Especially with brushes. Try to stay with few, such as  Deluxe crease brush, Arched powder brush, Tapered blush brush (it is convenient for highlighter too), Flat contour brush, Foundation brush, Blending brush (for eye shadows) and The Brow brush ( which I decided to sacrifice for concealer). 
The ones I'm using are from Real Techniques, LoRac Pro, and Urban Decay NAKED.
 The face part. Well there isn't something special. So stay with your primer, foundation, concealer, mineral powder and setting spray. Primer, setting spray and concealer are from NYX. Which I absolutely love. Matte Liquid foundation and mineral powder are from Mary Kay.
 The Palette part. For palettes I always choose two palettes of eye shadows which now are Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 2  and Prestige Cosmetics Beauty Bar Eyeshadow Palette, Camouflage , for eyebrows I'm only satisfied with Bellapierre brow palette  . For highlight and blush at the moment I'm using Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette Sugar & Spice and for contour I take this little palette from Aliexpress.com which is really good for traveling.
For mascara I chose Mary Kay ultimate mascara , then Essence brow mascara in deep brown and for eyeliner, I think it is also from Aliexpress.com . Can't remember exactly though.

And finally lips! Three lip liners in nude, red and mauve colors, which are my favorite at the moment. Then of course red and nude lipsticks. And for primer I highly recommend this NYX lip primer which I love so much!

So that's a wrap for this post! Hope it was useful for you and see you soon!

Autumn means fresh? & Christmas is coming I ChitChat

In our lives we all have ups and downs. It isn't something surprising. Right now I have one of those downs. I mean even though I'm at the place where I always want to spend my time, there is still something missing. And the most annoying thing is that I don't know what it is. I have amazing friends & a perfect relationship with my mom. That's all I needed, but somehow that is not all. I do want to do a lot of stuff with my life to make it better, but there is zero motivation to start making those steps. Those steps and things are really simple and easy, for example book for a driving school. I do keep talking about it but still can't manage to sign in. There are so many more things to do and at this moment I just have no strength & motivation. Yes, I already googled infinite amount of tips of how to pull myself together, but all I feel is exhaust.




Anyway, I hope it will fade away soon and now lets talk about Christmas!!! I already heard Christmas songs in a…

Halloween vibes & new resolutions I ChitChat

Hello to all of you! Once again I'm laying in my bed, drinking muffin-flavoured tea and scrabbling here. Today's topic won't be anything special, just a simple post that I decided to write on a Wednesday evening.
So to begin with I changed my hair color.. (once again...) and I'm happy with it! I mean, I'm truly enjoying this color. It is kind of a pastel pink and rose gold mix. At first when I dyed it I was like ''Jesus what have I done...''. But now I'm thinking that I will leave this color for as long as possible. Also Halloween is almost here and now that I'm with pink hair it is easier to do makeup for that occasion. Still don't know exactly what or who I'll be, but I'm planning to do a video of my Halloween makeup tutorial. I think it will be great. Hope so.
Also I want to talk more about ''new resolutions'' subject. I know that every time of the year, every month I'm talking about how I want to change, sta…
