What's In My Makeup Bag || Ski Camp Edition

I will be heading off to a school camp to the snow on Sunday and for someone who hasnt been to the snow since babyhood, it is exciting. Im assuming that I've overpacked since I do like having choices but most of the makeup products im bringing is actually for a special dinner where we are all dressing up to a chosen theme (this years is Stereotypes) and I will be doing my friends makeup since we are both dressing up as bikers/biker chicks which calls for dark makeup!
Not all the items fit in my makeup bag so I will be packing them in another small bag along with my bathroom necessities.

My makeup bag is a Tory Burch replica, which was bought by my dad overseas, Im not a fan of the whole design but it fits hella a lot of things inside so it is the perfect time to be using it as I rarely travel.

Garnier BB Cream, one of my favourite western BB creams in the market, it looks natural yet it has light-medium coverage. It does cling onto my dry patches, so I wont be using it while im out in the snow, but it will be used during the dinner.
I know for sure during school camps, I usually wake up early and sleep in late, so the obvious dark circles will be coming for me, the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer gives a light coverage and concealer is just one of those products I cant leave the house without! 
Did you know uv levels are higher out in the snow than on the beach? Will be packing my favourite sunscreen, the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock. I just love how it doesnt leave a greasy feeling on the skin!
This is another product that Ill only be using for the dinner, NYC Sunny Bronzer, just to bronze up my face so I dont look like a pale ghost.

Ill be bringing the Hello Kitty Palette, since it has a range of eyeshadows which I can use from day to night. With the eyeshadows Ill be using the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, just so it wont smudge or crease.
My main brow duo includes the Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Pencil + NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder, i find the pencil to be very versatile to use, if im in a rush I can fill in my brows quickly with just the pencil and if I have time I will define my brows with the pencil then fill in my brows with the powder.
Im assuming that even though its cold, my face will be an oily mess in the morning to the night, so the Daiso Blotting Paper will be my savior 

The Lucas Papaw Ointment is something that I think everyone needs to bring while theyre travelling, it helps with cracked skin, burns, bug bites and so much more but I find it works best on my cracked lips, I've brought 2 lip balms with me and if it doesnt go well, Ill switch to the papaw ointment.
As I will be in the cold, my lips will be pale, so I do need to put on a tint so that I dont look dead, the Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in Orange was on my monthly favourites just for that reason!
As I said before, one of the lip balms Im bringing with me is the Nivea Unscented Lip Butter I've been using it in the morning and before bed and I do want to finish the entire tub so I can use my other lip butter scents.
For the dinner, I've opted for either the Shanghai Suzy Lippie in Miss Kitty or MAC Russian Red, Im too much of a wuss to wear red lips, but I may force myself to use it since it suits the whole "biker" look, but if I do decide to back out on the red, Ill most likely be using Miss Kitty.

Im bringing the K-Palette Liner, because of that fact that I can use this when Im in a rush or when I feel like doing a winged liner or a thin line. The HK Liquid Liner will be used when im just doing my everyday liner, not too thin or thick and I can use it in conjuction with K-Palette for the cat eye liner look.
I brought my MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack to be used on the dinner just because i can get whatever look i want with this.
Also brought 2 mascaras with me, whichever one I feel like using, i will use. Dior Show Mascara and Maybellines One by One.

Bringing a hair tie to get my hair out of my face while skiing. I know I will be sick and tissues do come in handy when things get messy.
And a handcream from Crabtree & Evelyn, to cure them dry hands!

The Garnier Micella Cleansing Water does not fit in my makeup bag obviously but it will come in handy to remove my everyday makeup. Im also bringing along the Maybelline Total Clean Makeup remover because it removes the makeup that the garnier water doesnt remove, for example my MAX fluidline, needs an oil based remover to be fully removed.
And to remove my face makeup, Ill be using my Wotnot Facial Wipes.

I'll most likely be packing extra things if I decide to bring it along, and I am bringing makeup brushes, cotton rounds + cotton buds with me but they will be packed separately with my bathroom supplies.

Also if there is anything that I should be packing for the snow please let me know! :)


  1. I have the same Tory Burch replica makeup bag as you do! Same colour too! I love the Maybelline Age Concealer. It's my Holy Grail for covering dark circles. x

    1. How handy is it?! Literally the only makeup bag that fits most of my products. Definitely! it feels so lightweight on the skin aswell!
