Dubai Series: What's in my Dubai Makeup Bag

Hi everyone,
I know that I said my Dubai series was going to take part last week but the wifi in my room was not free so I was unable to post. Anyway, I have decided to post every other day until Halloween. These posts might be part of my Dubai series or Halloween themed posts, so I hope there is something for everyone to read this week. My Dubai series might also continue through November depending on whether you want to see it or not. Now moving on to today's post. I am going to share with you the makeup products I took to Dubai. Some of these products I love and were a necessity for a holiday like this, and some products I was testing out for the first time.

Freedom Pro Mattify Primer - Makes my makeup last longer while keeping my oily skin at bay.
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - Includes spf and gives a light coverage.
MUA Pro-base Prime and Conceal Palette - Review here
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - Brought two shades in case I get a bit of a tan.
Natural Collection Creamy Concealer - Perfect light coverage concealer.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - Hides the jet lag.
Collection Speedy Blush Stick in Cheeky - Quick, easy and looks super natural.

Powder Products:
Freedom Pressed Powder - Use to set my under eye concealer
Collection Bronze Glow - Makes me look even more tanned.
Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder - Sets my whole face in place with out making it look super caked.

Freedom Innocent Collection Eye Shadow Palette - Mainly brought it for it's massive mirror.
Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara - Super small and does a great job.

Maybelline Colour Tattoos in Permanent Taupe and On and On Bronze - Super fast and last a long time.

The Body Shop Honeymania Lip Balm - Super thick and moisturizing.
Victoria Secret Lip Scrub in Strawberry Fizz - Does a great job at exfoliating the lips and tastes amazing.
Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm spf 15 - This is the only lip balm I own with spf so I had to bring it.

  1. I bet this look is gorgeous on you! What's the funny sponge thing?! So excited for our collab :) Bobo xoxo

    1. Thank you! The sponge is just a normal beauty blender but because the top of mine got all mucky, I just cut off the pointed bit so it has a flat top. Bit weird but does the same thing. I can't wait for our colab either!

  2. All these products look amazing, What do you recommend?
    I loved this post xx

    1. It depends what you are looking for, I love all these products and because all of them are inexpensive you aren't breaking the bank. I would recommend all these products but feel free to email me if you want to have a chat about what you are looking for and what you want in a product. Thank you for your comment!

  3. I've bought the natural collection conceiler as I was intreged by the price!! Is it any good at hiding them tired eyes or nah? Great post BTW xox

    1. I don't use it for under the eyes as it more covers than brightens but it works wonders on spots. Thank you!
