Well, I’ve been home for almost three weeks now, but as I am practically incapable of behaving like a functioning adult, I am only getting around to reviving my poor blog now-ish. Heh.
I was away from my makeup stash for most of the month of September. First, I went on a trip to Asia with my dad. I came back to Hawaii for a few days and stayed at my uncle’s place while waiting for our bathroom renovation to wrap up. Then, I spent a weekend in Las Vegas for my cousin’s wedding. When we finally moved back in, it took awhile to sort our lives back in order. It’s still not 100% sorted out, but whose life really is, amirite?
Anyway! This post is on what was in my travel makeup bag that I used for the past month. Let’s see what made the cut.
I often gravitate towards colors of the opposite season we’re in, just to be contrary. Summertime calls for bronze tones, corals, and juicy brights. Well, give me dark, vampy reddish purple! There’s something refreshing about the “summer goth” trend.
Here I’ve paired a deep wine color with bronze lids. It’s a nice twist on the usual smoky eyes and/or winged eyeliner + vampy lips. Instead, I went with a haze of shimmer, and no visible liner. A rosy gold bronzer and a nude blush finish it all off!
