I’m off again friends! Told you I couldn’t sit still.
Because my family from Greece and I can’t get enough of eachother, we are meeting for a weekend in Dublin. I am so excited to reunite with them as well as some other cousins from New York, Boston, and California. I am sure we are going to have an amazing time, filled with lots of laughs and sightseeing. So far we already have our reservations for dinner inside a church, and our tour booked for the Cliffs of Moher. Stay tuned for more posts regarding the trip!
As for what I am packing, I am definitely bringing layers (as suggested by almost everyone who has ever been there). You just can’t trust the unexpected weather in the Emerald Isle. For makeup, I am going lighter than ever. Since this is a family trip, and my cousins aren’t really into huge productions and full faces of makeup, I’m assuming I am not going to spend much time on it and getting ready either. I learned my lesson from the days we spent together in Symi when I opted to go bare faced EVERY DAY.
I don’t really plan to go bare this time, but here is what I will be bringing for my more minimal approach.
Don’t make fun of me, but the Anastasia Subculture Palette just has the color assortment that screams Ireland to me. It has the olive/greens, an orange, and a brown and bronze for when I want neutral tones. I’ll have everything I need from basic/neutral to more fun pops, while still feeling like I’m in the Irish theme.
Comment down below if you want to see a step by step look with this palette, and also any specific types of looks you would want to see!
Milk Kush Brow Gel– This is such a great product and all I use from my brows.
Revlon Color Stay Liquid Liner in Green Spark: Am I overdoing it with the green? I figured this might be a simple way to add some pop to a basic look.
Clinique Eyeliner: I dont see myself going crazy with heavy dark liners, and wings but I’m bringing both of these pencils to maybe smudge along the lash line. (Definitely forsee getting more use from the brown)
Ahh the standards:
Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation in Punjab, Nars Radiant Creamy Concaler in Custard, LA Girl Proconceal in Toast for Cream Contour.
I really don’y think I need to say any more on this.
This Anastasia Contour Palette in Medium Tan is a great all in one palette for me. I use every shade. The two darker mixed to contour, the other three peaches as blushes (and they are all pretty neutral to go with my looks) and one neutral gold highlight shade. It pretty much covers me for everything and I don’t think I will be bringing secondary options of bronzers, blushes, highlights since it is just a 3 day trip.
I kept the lips simple this time with different shades of pinky neutrals, one lip liner to go with all of them, and a bronzy gloss to top things off.
