This weekend I'm off on a quick trip with a couple of friends to visit some of our friends in a different city. It will also be my 19th birthday tomorrow which I am incredibly excited about! I imagine I won't be getting much sleep over the next few days. 

With so much going on but so little time, I probably won't be wearing much makeup because who really cares? I do appreciate a flawless base though, especially in photos, so I'll be reaching for the MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer in NC30 to cover any obvious blemishes first. Under the eyes, I will be using the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC25 as usual because I know already I'll be needing it. To finish it all off, I'll use the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC30 as a powder foundation and a quick spritz of MAC Fix+ to set it all in place.

The only colour I will need for the cheeks will be from the NARS Blush in Luster. This blush goes with any look and works to lift the cheekbones without the need for highlighter or contour. It adds a subtle hint of colour and glow which I just love for everyday use. 

On the eyes, I'll be taking my MAC quad which contains Ricepaper, All That Glitters, Soba, and Patina. To make sure the shadows don't crease or fade throughout the day, I'll quickly use a bit of the Urban Decay Primer Potion. To finish off any look, I'll be using the Benefit They're Real! Mascara to pump up those upper lashes and the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara for the baby bottom lashes. I really can't be without a little mascara.

 What are your travel makeup staples?
