LAST week, I shared with you what skin care I took with me on my last trip. For the curious, here’s what I packed makeup-wise:

Innisfree BB cushion

If you’ve been reading this column for a while (thank you!), you might be familiar with this since I always mention this when I’m traveling somewhere cold. It’s so easy and comfortable, even when my skin is a lot drier than usual, and I don’t need to pack an extra makeup sponge to apply this. It evens out my skin tone without looking like I have anything on. I wish I had realized sooner, though, that Korean brands tend to formulate BB cushions according to season. I’ve tried to use this in Cebu and it slides around like crazy on my combination skin. If you’re shopping for a BB cushion to wear here, look for one that holds up to our humidity.

MAC Cosmetics Burgundy Times Nine palette

I never bring large palettes with me when I travel, but I still can’t do with only one eyeshadow. The MAC Burgundy Times Nine palette is perfect because it has a variety of mauve and burgundy shades in a slim compact. It’s all I needed for different looks from day to night.

Benefit Hoola bronzer

This is one of Benefit Cosmetics’ bestselling cheek powders. It’s great for subtle contour or to be used as eyeshadow. You can opt to pack the original size, but the tiny travel size is just right for a short getaway.

Happy Skin moisturizing lippie in Rapunzel

I think a lot of us went wild when we learned about Happy Skin’s awesome collaboration with Disney. This limited edition series of face makeup and lipsticks in liquid and chubby stick formats are inspired by our favorite Disney princesses. I brought Rapunzel with me on my trip; so moisturizing in dry weather, and easy to apply even while in the subway. The Disney collection unfortunately won’t be available ever after, so better stop by the Happy Skin store in SM City Cebu soon if you still want to get a hold of one (or many!).

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte lipstick in Red Carpet

Of course, I can’t travel with only one lipstick option! This one by Bobbi Brown is a gorgeous red that’s not too dark nor too bright, so it’s wearable for day or night. Even though it’s matte, it’s not drying, and stays on well so that you can focus on your trip and not touching up your lipstick all the time.
