Alright well I’m STUFFED from lemon-y kale salad, mahi mahi tacos, too much avocado, & raspberries X dark chocolate chips…so I think it’s time to shut down my computer & read.
Oh, & make sure to come hang out on Snapchat, it’s easy, fun, & unfiltered.
Plus I’ll be sharing A LOT of beauty hauls, makeup tutorials, easy recipes, workout tips, & a lot of behind the scenes LOL-ers. Username: @laurynevarts.
Leave your username below so I can stalk your Snap too. Fully curious.
Some of you guys saw that I shared my daytime makeup routine on Snapchat the other day, & one of the staple products shared was CC cream. That same day a lovely little package of goodies arrived with a bunch of other goodies. Coincidently the package contained my favorite CC cream.
Weird, I guess everyone is loving it because it’s just THAT good.
Anyway, since the whole package was so cute ( & inexpensive! ) I figured I’d share it on The Skinny Confidential for any brides to be. This seems like kind of the perfect bridal grab bag because 1.) it’s the prettiest, TSC-esque pink, 2.) it’s filled with insane products, & 3.) it has my ride or die, dewy CC cream.
This pretty, limited edition Lela Rose Spring 2016 Cosmetic Bag is filled with:
ALSO, if you’re engaged, check out Beauty.com’s bridal tutorials, curated spring bridal content, & bridal-themed guest editor page.
AND to whoever has already done the whole wedding thing: what’s the one beauty product you didn’t think you would need on your wedding…that you ended up REALLY needing? I feel like someone’s going to say a tampon?
I used to be guilty of have having 3 cosmetic bags to travel but after 1.) getting all my cosmetics taken by airport customs, 2.) hurting my shoulder from carrying too much, & 3.) kind of learning how to travel, I travel with one.
This is big so it’s a real win. Plus it’s like $9 dollars.
Anyway, enough about the bag, let’s talk about what’s in it!
You guys know we are in Cabo planning our wedding, really I wish you could all come. How fun would that be? LOL. So I figured what a perfect time to share what’s in my travel cosmetic bag.
Instead of doing the typical boring list, let’s just sort of shoot the shit shall we?
Ok so pink Q-tips, they’re just way cuter.
I have a HUGE zit right now ( watch Snapchat & see for yourself ), normally my skin is not prone to zits ( don’t call me lucky BECAUSE instead I get hyper pigmentation— UGH ).
This zit is highly, highly annoying, so zit cream to the rescue. I’ve used acne spot fix since I was in 7th grade for random pimples- NO JOKE. It’s my ride or die zit product. & of course, pink Q-tips are necessary for applying the zit cream because the worst thing in the world you can do for a zit is to touch it.
I know everyone & their mom says this but here’s the real truth: when you pop a pimple the white crap in it is contagious. Meaning if you get that pimple goo ANYWHERE, & I mean ANYWHERE, it will spread the pimple. BACTERIA. Don’t believe me? Next time you pop a pimple & touch your face anywhere prepare to get more pimples.
I avoid this situation at all costs obviously.
Pimple popping tips: start with a clean face ( I use an all natural soap bar ). Pimple gets popped with a pimple popper ( this is a thing guys, found it at the drugstore, really works wonder ), I make sure nothing gets anywhere & then I immediately apply Murad’s zit cream to the zit WITH A Q-TIP not my finger.
Is this making sense or do I sound crazy?
Whatever you do, avoid the finger after the popping the zit. TRUST ME.
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything from the lip plumper. Maybe just some shine? Boy, was I wrong. This lip plumper reallllly plumps ’em up.
Like total Kylie Jenner-style.
Ok so we’re still on what’s in my travel cosmetics bag: I also threw in a cute Forever 21 necklace, Fashion Tape ( SO YES for every woman ), & a face massager to help with swelling. I found this contraption in Milan & I use it every day. A REAL life-saver.
Nippies are a no brainer because hard nipples are inevitable & these are essential for travel.
And then I threw in my camera ( not cosmetics, but necessary ), neon nail polish, & a teeth whitening pen!
Ok so that’s what I packed in my cosmetic bag. I feel like all of these thing are random but when you have a zit & hard nipples all of these things are kind of essential, no?
Ok, you’re up: what’s in your travel cosmetic bag?
