Packing for the tropics

I've spoken about what to pack when traveling in previous blog posts before but it's another year and another tropical holiday. So, of course this calls for an update on my makeup essentials to pack for those palm tree, pineapple and coconut kinda trips...

Let's talk about concealers

There are some days I don't feel like wearing foundation, CC cream or tinted moisturizer so it's important that I have a few good concealers in my everyday makeup drawer. It should definitely be a staple product for anyone who wears makeup but the key is to find one that answers your skin questions.

I'm not really one to follow the hottest brands in right now but I do think sometimes it's worth checking out. Here's my current concealers on rotation, one missing from here is my Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer which I love as an overall concealer for blemish coverage, uneven skin tone and under eye concealer.
