If you read my previous post you already know that I visited Cambodia last month. The last time I went to Cambodia was eight years ago, but we only visited Phnom Penh and skipped Siem Reap. Of course, I have to come back for Angkor Wat. Given that it was raining hard the whole month of July in the Philippines, I’m not sure what to expect with regards to Cambodia’s weather.
Because I was there for only less than three days I only packed a few things. Most of the products I packed with me are my daily essentials. Here are the products I brought:
When we went to Phnom Penh years ago, the weather was bright and sunny that’s why I made sure I brought my trusted Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence (review). Of course, sunscreen is a must. I was also ready for Siem Reap’s humidity so I used my go-to drugstore foundation Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combo/Oily Skin to keep my face shine-free for hours.
I’m more of a nude eyeshadow kind of girl but I thought that this trip was the right opportunity to use warm toned shadows. ColourPop Take Me Home Eyeshadow (review) is perfect since the warm colours are not too dramatic and the size of this palette is good for travelling. I then finished my eye makeup with a brown eyeliner, TonyMoly Back Gel BT Supreme Matte Liner (review) and a waterproof mascara, L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara (review).
I brought a lot of lipsticks with me but I actually used only two the entire trip. They are two of my current fave nude shades: NARS Anita Audacious Lipstick, a warm pink with a cream finish, and Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte in Clay Crush, warm brown with a semi-matte finish.
As for blush, I used the NARS Orgasm Liquid Blush (review) and layered it with the NARS Orgasm Pressed Powder Blush, to make it last the whole day. To complement my warm toned eye makeup I finished it with a warm gold highlighter, Becca Prosecco Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed.
Unfortunately, I left the most important thing. No, it’s not my ticket or passport, it’s my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I was already on my way to the airport when I realised I left it. 😦
That’s all for now! How about you? What makeup do you bring when you go travelling? 🙂
