I was tagged by the lovely M and Crystal to do this heart-stopping tag.
WHAT I LOOK LIKE RIGHT NOW!!!
I’m at Kansai Airport in Osaka, waiting for my flight… so here we go:
I travel a lot for work, and this is my basic travel attire. I’m lucky that I work for a company that does not require me to wear business attire while traveling.
Navy blue polo shirt
Puma Slip On Shoes
I know a lot of people say not to travel in jeans, but I really don’t mind.
Here’s my face:
Skinfood mushroom BB Cream (thanks Wuzzy!)
concealer & loose powder
eyebrows penciled in lightly
Estee Lauder Crystal Baby Lipstick (ALMOST my HG… if it didn’t smell like rose water…)
I like the Skinfood mushroom BB cream that Wuzzy sent me a sample of, but I do need to wear concealer and powder to hide the redness around my nose. BRTC seems to have better coverage.
Paperdollrevenge mentioned that my eyebrow color is light – as you can see, in this lighting, my hair color is quite light as well.
EOTD is a basic neutral eye using Kate Gradical Eyes in BR-3 (I think), black eyeshadow in the outer corner, eyeliner, mascara primer, and mascara.
I think I want to try a new eyeliner because my Kate gel eyeliner seems to be wearing off easier than it used to. My GR-1 (an olive green color) is OK, but the BR-3 (black with blue glitter) wears off pretty quickly… no idea why.
Sorry M, no “haul pose” since I did not buy anything at the airport, even food…
I was going to buy the Dior 5-color palette I’ve been lemming, but they are $60 at the duty free when they are $56 at sephora.com (which doesn’t ship to Japan).
I promise I’ll take a “haul pose” pic in Guam!!!!
Some people have asked what I put in my plastic baggie to carry on to the plane.
A: Perfume (Dior Addict 2) – nice smells relax me on the plane
B: Sunblock (Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70) – the UV rays are strong in an airplane!! Yes, this is smaller than 3.3 fl oz (100ml). It is 3 fl oz (88ml). Of course I’ve checked.
C: ear plugs and eye mask – I’m on a 3.5 hr flight arriving in Guam at 2 AM. I need sleep. I love these ear plugs with strings so that I don’t lose them. I have like 3 pairs on me at anytime. I even use them at work.
E: makeup remover – I don’t like the makeup remover sheets that are sold here. I don’t think that they contain enough liquid to remove my makeup gently.
F: Chapstick – with SPF 15. Again, to protect my lips. I like how this smells citrus-y. However, I do not think that it keeps my lips moist.
– this is from a swap with Linda
H: contact lens case & lens – I wear hard contacts most of the time. I’m not wearing them on the flight, but I do not like to pack them separately for fear of losing them.
I & J: Tylenol – for emergency use. One of them is nighttime tylenol. I’m not sure why I packed a different amount of daytime/nighttime pills. I like to stock up on medicine when I’m in the US because Japanese medicine is around 50% less effective (due to belief that strong medicine does harm to your body).
K: Lipstick – Estee Lauder Crystal Baby Lipstick (what I’m wearing today)
L: Skinfood BB cream
M: vaseline – yes, I wear vaseline on my lips. It is also good as an emergency moisturizer. It’s greasy, but it lasts the longest.
N: Lipgloss – I think this is a Canmake lipgloss, but I’ve had it so long that all the printing has worn off
O: disposable contacts – 1-day Acuvue Define. The ones that make your eyes look bigger. I wear disposable contacts when I’m traveling overnight.
Q: eye drops – Rohto Z Phi. As LadyL says, “it’s like your eyes are on crack.”
As you can see, I pack a lot of stuff in my baggie. Most of it is either for my lips or for my eyes, since those are the two things I really need to take care of.
As for makeup & skin care that I bring in my luggage, I will show that in a separate post!
SEE YOU ALL IN GUAM!!!!!!!!
