There’s more to strategic travel packing than just clothes! It’s also about which beauty products to pack along for the ride. Like I mentioned before, all I brought to Greece for our honeymoon was a carry-on and another small bag, so for me, packing light was key. While I resorted to travel-size shampoos, conditioners etc, I also had to tailor down my makeup bag to just my essential makeup pieces. I packed my everyday, can’t-live-without beauty products that included three main staple bareMinerals items. 

My three go-to makeup items on the trip:

foundation & powder



I’ve featured the bareSkin foundation multiple times because I love how you can adjust the coverage depending on the occasion. Packing this was a no-brainer. A couple of drops meant light day coverage – which was a must in the heat btw – and I applied a heavier amount on the foundation brush for dinner and night time activities. After dusting over a setting powder, my skin was good-to-go. There were many days that I just wore a light layer of the bareSkin/powder, and that was all I needed because we were outside the entire time. Yep, there were days I had no eye makeup on at all!

Since were out in the sun so much (yes, I had my 50 SPF sunscreen!), I didn’t need much of a bronzer, but I did dust READY blush on the apples of my cheeks at night to give my makeup a more dressed up look. Since I was wearing very minimal face makeup the entire trip, I did bring a range of lipsticks shades to instantly brighten up my face in the evening. The bareMinerals Moxie lipsticks and glosses have become instant favorites of mine. The Moxie Gloss in Rebel never leaves my purse. Ever.

Hopefully, this might inspire you to pack lighter on your next trip – I learned that it’s definitely not necessary to bring your entire product collection on vacation, and to be honest, it was nice to not worry so much about my makeup on this trip!
