I used to pack too much makeup in the past but I am getting better, this time I really have to pack even lighter, I don’t have the choice since we are leaving on our motorbikes. Not my favorite means of transport but next year I will do something more “me”, maybe New York or the Maldives ?
I started packing, even though I could absolutely leave home only with my moisturizer, my mascara and my lip balm, I decided to pack some more things, still too many but let’s see what I can do…, so far it sums up to :
I need a beauty bag with a cold pack inside, it will help to keep the delicate products cool (medicine, cream and lipstick). The luggage in the motorbike can get really very hot, even more in summer.
I found this beauty bag in Spain, in a supermarket, not the most beautiful bag but very handy (Gio Style), and it has a mirror … Two zips, one in each side.
I always take alcohol with me to sanitize makeup, brushes, tools, spatulas… I also take adhesive tape, it can be very handy, to secure pots or anything. Scissors, some empty pots, a safety pin, pencil sharpener (that’s the Rouge Bunny Rouge in the picture).
It’s a shame to pack lightly because it’s during the holiday that I can really try and play with skincare. I take a lot of products, but in small quantities and then I can still have fun without too many sacrifices..
I clean my face in the evening and in the morning with micellar water so I only need a small bottle of eye makeup remover.
I like to take some samples but instead of tearing them open, I make just a tiny hole with a safety pin, it keeps the product more protected inside the sample, just an idea I got at the drugstore…
I keep the little pots in plastic bags, just in case of accident.. I also take at least one empty pot and an extra little bag.
Sometimes I prefer to empty the little sample in the pot, it will be easier to use on the go :
Too many things but I want to have fun… I will use the RMK blushes also on the eyes, the great thing with them is that they are multipurpose, eyes, highlight, several combinations and always look perfect. I will layer the pencils and the eyeshadows and maybe use the Laguna on the crease. I will wear foundation but just a little bit, a very thin application under the eyes and blended with my moisturizer.
I think I will also take the Hakuhodo J Series with me and if the weather is bad at the destination, I will have some books to read and also the J Series to review 😉
If the weather is really bad, I will grab the the Makeup For Ever Aqua Cream and a waterproof mascara, this way I don’t need to worry about looking raccoonish …

I got the RMK cool bag as a gift recently, I probably will store everything in there.
The motorbike cases are not that big but I should be able to pack everything in there, for a week long trip.
Getting ready for departure…
… but thinking about my next holiday at the Maldives…
We will ride to somewhere near Limoges in France and stay in the area for approx 5 days I believe… if you have any questions, or recommendations, makeup or anything else, please don’t hesitate 😉
