A Glamping We Will Go--- MOTD Items and Look for Our Malagos Garden Resort Excursion

by - 11:30 PM

   We recently went to Malagos Garden Resort for some much needed R&R. One of the things that Glamazons are concerned about when semi-roughing it, is packing for the motd. Truth be told, you can opt to bring just a lip and cheek tint, a bottle of sunblock and a tube of bb cream. I wanted to see if I could come up with an motd with less than what I normally use at home but more than what I would use for my no makeup look. I wanted this particular excursion to have some semblance of glam and not the usual minimal makeup (if any at all) I often go for on outdoorsy trips. I've tried the usual makeup route for overnight stays but I've never quite tried glamping or trying to be fashionable while on a trip. I usually don't care too much about motds when I'm on vacay, so I decided to try it on our Malagos Garden Resort stay.

  So what did I pack?

1. Nivea Post Shave Balm- I repacked it in a smaller and much lighter container---a soft squeeze bottle to be precise. I want my makeup to glide smoothly and stay on all day. if I don't use a primer, my skin, sweat, and oil will eat up all the products in a just a few hours.

2. Etude Brow Pencil (#2 Brown) and M.A.C Browset (Girlboy)- I use the pencil to shape the brows and the browset or the browcara to match my brows to my hair. No glam look is complete without fantastic brows.

3. M.A.C. Individual Eyeshadows in Brule and Espresso- If you can only bring a few items, a good cream base is a must and a brown shadow will give your eyelook some dimension or even a smokey effect that is 100% fabulous.

4. Maybelline Hypersharp Eyeliner and Etude House Play 101 Pencil (#49)- If you want a softer look, use just the Etude House Pencil. I wanted drama, and Maybelline Hypersharp delivers drama.

5. Clinique High Impact Mascara- You want to frame those peepers with lush lashes and I have the sampler size from a set that is essential for this glamping excursion.

6. L'Oreal Infallible Pro- Matte (Golden Beige)- You need the ultimate face base that will keep the oil at bay and stay on all daw. Maybelline Matte and Poreless is also a good choice but glamping would dictate that the lighter and sleeker packaging is the better choice.

7. BYS Contour and Highlighting Sticks- these are cream sticks that glide on smoothly on the skin and do not budge once set.

8. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer- I used this to make my brows sharper and to hide the dark circles under my eyes.

9. Maybelline White Stay Fresh 2-way Powder (Sand beige)-  My usual setting/finishing powders were too bulky to bring and I can imagine too messy to attmpt. I decided to pat this on my face to set my makeup.

10. M.A.C. Sculpt and Shape Compact- I set my contour and highlight with this instead of my fave Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette. Smaller but also effective.

11. Colourpop Supershock Cheek Blush in Clutch- This small and compact blush packs is highly pigmented and requires a light touch to give you a sweet and natural blush. I chose this because it seemed the least fragile of my blush collection.

12. Colourpop Supershock Highlighter in Lunch Money- This cream highlighter glides on smoothly on the skin and gives that controlled dewy illusion that balances the full makeup look. It is essential if you want a full face but don't want a matte and cakey look. I chose this amongst my highlighter collection because the last time I packed my Becca Champagne Pop, it shattered during travel.

13. Colourpop in Clueless- This innocent but playful matte pink gives you a lip color you don't have to retouch as much (if at all) and gives you a soft but finished look.

14. L'Oreal Infallible Makeup Extending Setting Spray- this seals the makeup and lets it set as it dries. I repacked it in a smaller atomizer for the glamping trip.

  I managed to fit all of these and some extras I wound up not using in a medium-sized cosmetic bag. Full glam looks often require a cosmetic case but I managed to minimize the products enough to fit into my handbag.

  Here is my glamping motd topped with a wide brimmed hat for effect and sun protection. :)

   I had so much fun putting together this motd. I hope you also had fun reading about my glamping experience and hopefully you try it out for yourself too. I've always gone the sans or minimal makeup look and I just wanted to try something new. This was another thing I simply had to say yes to in my journey of self-love, self-acceptance, and discovery.

  So what are you waiting for? Say yes to something new today... :) . May the Glam be with you! :)
