What’s in my Make up Bag? Cruise Edition

I am going on vacation, my friends!! Not only am I going to be away from work and the demons kids, but hubby and I are going to be cruising on Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Symphony of the Seas, for their launch party.

Excited? Elated? What word am I looking for to describe how I feel?

How about…. Freaking Thrilled?

Yes, let’s go with that.

Anyways, since we are only going to be onboard for 2 days, I don’t really want to pack a whole lot of makeup, because I would rather be spending time drinking daiquiris than perfecting my wing liner, but you know that I am going to bring some of the good stuff. So my makeup bag is a nice mix of easy looks and a few nighttime goodies to spice things up for the clubs.


Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette – I just got this cutie during the VIB sale, so I have yet to use it, but I am banking on all the reviews and it’s friendly travel size to make this a good palette to take me from day to night.

However, if Natasha fails me, I am going to rely on my Too Faced Sugar Cookie palette to save the day. She has my back.

Butter London Double Decker Mascara– a favorite and fail proof. I always get full, fluffy lashes using it.


Physician Formula Healthy Foundation – I’m still loving this foundation and how it makes my skin look like skin, so definitely taking this with me as I don’t really want anything full coverage (although it is buildable) I just want my skin to look fresh and glowy.

Tarte Shape Tape – not even going to mess with anything else because this stuff is super reliable and when you are just going to lounge by the pool, you can just dot some of the product on your trouble spots and blend. No need to do a full face.

Karity Blush Bomb in Burgandy Blast– I just bought this blush kit and I am loving it. With two blushes, one matte and the other shimmer, and a highlighter, you can’t go wrong.

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer– where I go, Ms. Mary Lou goes. That’s the rule!


Colourpop Matte Lux Lipstick in Paparazzi– a lovely coral shade that goes perfectly with a Caribbean inspired wardrobe. Vibrant and bright, you can’t go wrong.

NARS Velvet Matte pencil in Cruella – you always need to be red lip ready. It immediately takes your look up a notch just standing next to it. This is a lip liner and matte pencil in one. The perfect combo.

Real Her Matte Liquid Lip in I Decide My Destiny – the perfect moody nude. Long lasting and practically goes with everything. A nude is a must!

Too Faced Liquid Matte Mini in Sugar Cookie – another nude, but a bit more gray. Goes perfectly with a T-shirt and jeans or shorts with just a bit of mascara and a dash of blush.

Am I actually going to wear all this makeup? Probably not, but you have got to be prepared for it all!

What’s in your bag, my friends?

Till next time!
