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!

UPDATES IN MY LIFE

6 am. Friday morning. Everyone is rushing into their daily routine. And then there's me. Sitting on bed. Enjoying last moments of lets say holidays, birds are chirping, sun is overtaking the day and I'm about to make a smoothie and maybe finally write a new post, because it's about time. I don't know about what it will be, but I hope it won't stop here 'cause these last days, weeks, months whenever I opened this page to write I got stuck in my minds and couldn't finish it all and etc. Oh well, happens..

Anyway, it is now 20th of July and after nine days I'll be 20 years old... While others at this age becomes billionaires, competes in Olympics, gets to be a cast of some movie, I can't say the same about myself haha... I'm mainly starting to focus on myself and what do I want from life. It's a though thing, because I want a lot and to have it, lets admit that, it requires a lot of work. I'm not saying I would give up only because it does…

2018 busy year & living abroad???? I ChitChat

Happy New Years and welcome back to this blog! From the title you may guess that today I'll be talking about few stuff that keeps popping up in my head more often.

My best friend recently got accepted to uni that she applied to. And it is abroad. Other friend will be going to US soon too.. So in the end of the day I realized there will be no one left here with who I like spending my time. Mainly I'll be lonely af. All my friends aren't in Lithuania. And I always keep thinking to move out. Not just to other apartment in the other side of the street where I could see my family. But to other country, other city. Somewhere else, where I could start living on my own and enjoy life like I always wanted heh..
So yeah..
Basically, I want to see the world outside of Lithuania. Even that thought makes me exited and motivated to plan my future maybe in Brighton? Edinburgh? Or even Colchester? Mainly in UK. Because I loved that country since my childhood and at some days I catch mysel…
