When I’m looking at what to pack for travel makeup, I’m looking at portability and maximum efficiency. This is true with makeup palettes especially. I shy away from bringing single eyeshadows, because they take up a lot of room and it’s not the smartest option. If you want different looks, make sure you have palettes that will help you achieve those. Make sure you check out my post about my travel makeup bag too! Here are the palettes that I’m currently travelling with:
When I travel, I still want to keep up with my skincare. The inconsistency of planes, hotels, and trains can really do a number on your skin. It’s important to me that I take care of my skin whether I’m at home or out of the country. Travel skincare needs to be small, effective, and simple to use.
Enter the Drunk Elephant Littles, my new best friends. These little lifesavers retail for $100 at Sephora in Canada, with a $130 value behind that price tag. If you’ve never heard of Drunk Elephant before, let me tell you a little bit about why I like their brand so much.
If you’re a makeup lover, you know that this is the hardest bag to pack: the travel makeup bag. I’m notorious for agonizing over what to bring. What if I want to wear this eyeshadow? What if we decide to go out somewhere nice and I want a shimmery lipgloss to complete the look? Total first world problems, I know. Well, today I’m packing for a three week trip to Europe, and let me tell you: picking my makeup items was ridiculously hard.
This post is going to be a long one, so buckle up.
Salzburg is a great place to visit when you’re looking for a taste of old Austria. It exudes a certain charm, with its winding narrow streets and the fortress that oversees it from atop a hill. I’ve used Salzburg twice as an “inbetween town”, in my travels, breaking up the long and arduous journey from Germany to Italy. It’s a great place to spend a day or two. There’s great Austrian food to be had here, and quite a few sights to keep you busy. I have a couple tips and fun things to do while you’re there, so here we go.
One of Rome’s most prominent sites, The Colosseum is a must-see for anyone visiting the city. When I was in Rome, I stayed at a hotel so close to the Colosseum that you could see it as soon as you walked down the street. It really is a surreal sight to experience. It’s a building so deeply rooted in History that there’s very few people who don’t know what it looks like.
Neuschwanstein, or, as it’s better known: The Sleeping Beauty Castle, is one of the most popular places to visit in Germany. This castle inspired Walt Disney’s castle in Disneyland, and its facade is truly a vision from a fairytale. I have some tips and tricks for making the most out of your trip to this magical destination, and I think I’m up to giving you my inside info.

Verona is somewhere that I hadn’t planned to visit, but I’m so glad I did. My boyfriend and I were staying in Bologna, and we had already seen everything we wanted to see, but still had another day booked there. So we decided to take a day trip to Verona, which was only a short (and cheap!) train ride away. To be honest, after we arrived in Verona, I wished we’d booked our hotel there instead. It’s absolutely beautiful there. Exactly what you imagine when you think of Italy. I wanted to share some things you should do while you’re there.
The Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been – maybe even the most beautiful. If you’re not familiar, The Cinque Terre is a seaside region of Italy that’s comprised of five towns, each with their own charm and beautiful scenery. If you’re thinking of visiting there, here are some tips that I picked up while I was there.
