Grab It Easy; Last Minute Beauty Shopping

Sometimes, when I want to travel or just want to buy something that I need to put into my makeup bag, browsing through the internet just makes me want products that are not available in Indonesia.  Okay, some of them are available in online store and can be easily purchased. But sometimes,  I want something quick. I want to buy and try the product right away at the counter to make sure it’s worth the money.  So, in this article I want to share with you makeup products that have good quality and easy to grab if you’re planning to buy quickly.  Just go to the nearest drugstores and department stores, and all of them are available.

1. Foundations / BB Creams

Matte finish?  Dewy finisih?  It’s up to you!

If you’re gonna spend your day outside, you want a base that helps mattifying your skin because later that day, when oil starts to come out, you won’t want your face to look greasy.  But if you’re going to spend most of your time indoor, don’t be afraid to pull off that healthy glowing dewy skin.

2. Concealer

Conceal your pimples, dark spots and dark circles with concealer.  No doubt this is what we need if we want to achieve a flawless look.

3. Powders

It’s important to set your Foundations/ BB Creams and concealer with powder to make it all set. You want everything that you put earlier to stay right in their place.

4. Eyeshadows

Choose a quad or small palette that are easy to travel with.  Choose one quad/palette that have neutral shades, and if you want to buy another one, pick a colorful one!  Who knows, maybe this time you prefer to play with colorful eyeshadows.  Make sure to swatch it before you buy one, we all have different skin tones, as some eyeshadows won’t come out as well on some skin tones.

5. Eyeliner

Waterproof eyeliner is very important.  The most annoying thing to happen is when your eyeliner starts to smudge.  BIG NO NO.  When you put waterproof eyeliner, let it dry first.  Try not to blink too much and don’t touch it.  When it all sets, even if you rub it, it won’t move a bit.

6. Eyelash Curler

Curling your lashes will help to ‘open’ your eyes.  It seems simple but it does make a difference!

7. Mascara

If you’re not planning to include water activities or tears that day, it’s okay to wear non-waterproof mascara. Otherwise, I think waterproof mascara is the best and the safest option.

8. Blush

Just add a proper amount on your cheeks.  Subtle color for holiday is the best.

9. Lipstick, Lipgloss, Lipbalm

Playing with lip color is fun and makes such a huge difference on your overall look.  Bold red, fushia, soft pink, nude.  Matte, sheer, creamy, buttery, glossy.  Many options for us!  Don’t forget to bring lipbalm or lipcare to moisturize your lips.
