What’s in my Makeup Travel Bag: Sydney

Last month, I went on a short trip to Sydney for my cousin’s wedding in Hunter Valley. It was already Autumn in Sydney; the days were still hot and humid while the nights were cool and windy.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Review

Even though most of the makeup products I’m using are relatively long-lasting, sometimes there are just limits to their longevity. That’s why I felt the need to resort to setting spray. If there’s a product that could make my makeup last the entire day without any touchups, I’ll definitely try it. When it comes to setting sprays it, (based on reviews), it seems like Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is the gold standard. Let’s see what’s the fuss is about…
