The Chosen Ones- Base Product


As you guys know, I'm currently at home in Germany, which means I'm away from my makeup stash for almost five weeks. This meant that I had to make some decisions about what to take, and I think I did pretty well at narrowing it down! It's more than I would take on a short holiday but much less than I own, so I think I found a good middle ground. Over the next few days I'm going to do a little series about which products I took, stating with base products, as these are all favourites that I know I can rely on! 



Foundation
I actually only took one foundation, which I was quite proud of, because I use this every day and I love it- of course I'm talking about the L'Oreal True Match foundation! As I will be outside a lot and probably tan, I also took my Revlon Skinlights in Bronze, as I can just mix this with my foundation for a bit of a glow and to make it a shade or two darker. I also took a BB cream option, which is the Garnier Skin Perfector for oily skin, my go-to BB cream. I took both the light and the medium/dark shade to accommodate for my tan!

Concealer
For concealer I obviously took my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in Light, which is still going strong, although I need to get a new one soon. I also took my Maybelline Fit Me concealer because I have it in a darker shade. It doesn't have as much coverage as the Collection one but it's still lovely, especially under the eyes as it's less drying. I also took my Garnier BB eye cream, which is a very light concealer and eye cream in one, for days when I don't want to wear full-on makeup but my undereye circles are just too bad to not do anything!

Bronzer and Blush
Of course I took my newfound love, NARS Laguna, because it's just the perfect bronzer for giving me that sunkissed glow. For days when I want a more serious contour I also took the Sleek Contour Kit in light, which is my favourite product for contouring. For blush I took three options: my NYX Powder blushes in Rosey, for a light pink flush, and Terracotta for a more sunkissed look. I also took my all time favourite Benefit blush, 'Dallas'.

So that's it for the base products I took, make sure to check back tomorrow for everything eyes!
