Beauty Edit 04 / Sarah

One of the most rewarding things that comes out of travelling is when strangers turn into friends. After meeting Sarah once through a mutual friend, we decided to travel together, first to Portugal and then to Amsterdam. During our last morning together at the hostel, I quickly snapped her beauty bag and took down some notes: 


  • Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer
  • L'oreal Nude BB Cream for light to medium skin - "I don't actually love smells chemical-y but it does the job."
  • L'oreal Infallible 24 Hour Matte Powder in the shade '123 Warm Vanilla' - "This powder really is infallible, it lasts forever."
  • Covergirl Tru Blend Blush - "I don't usually need to add rosiness to my already-red cheeks, but if I do need to, this is a good natural-looking blush."


  • Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in 'Un' - "This is a really pretty champagne shade that I use all over my lid when I don't have time to do a fancy eye look."
  • Too Faced's Natural Eyes Palette - "This is literally the only travel palette I will use, it's perfect. It has the perfect combination of matte and shimmery neutrals, you can use it for anything!"
  • Rimmel London's Wonderlash Mascara with organ oil - "a more natural looking mascara - my everyday go-to."
  • Clinique's High-Impact Waterproof Mascara - "more intense, fancier mascara."


  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shades '02 - Stockholm' and '27 - Madrid'
  • Rimmel London's Kate lipstick in the shade 08 - "the perfect neutral pink lipstick for my skin tone"

  • Brushes from Elf - "cheap...but they work super well"
  • Real Techniques beauty blender knockoff
