Survival Makeup Kit – The 5 products to put into it

Are you forgetful? Have you ever found yourself in a completely different country and discovered that your luggage disappeared during transport, and you have to wait to get it after a day or two? Yes? Then you've probably experienced shopping frustrating to make up for what you've lost or forgotten.

Sometimes the exchange process can be fun. But if you work with a limited budget (which is probably the case if you are traveling), you want to limit your purchases to just a few things.

If you have lost or forgotten your makeup package and you badly need one, there are multitasking products that you can buy to quickly put together. You can easily shop makeup online (where you can pay with your credit card) or go to the nearest pharmacy.

But what are these reliable makeup products that you should include in your survival makeup package? They are five and they can perform different tasks. Best of all, none of them cost much.

Just drop it on the apples on your cheeks and mix with your fingers for a natural looking redness. And if you don't mind the somewhat sticky texture of the lipstick, you can even apply it to your eyelids because pink and coral are also pretty shades for the eyes.
