Default Ladies, what are your basic make-up essentials for cruising?

no matter how hard i try to pare it down, i always seem to bring way to much. What are your tried and true must have's when it comes to make-up for the cruise?

Lisa, I have discovered Mojave Magic on QVC. It has eliminated and pared down considerably. There is a basic moisturizer, natural, pnkk, or a subtle bronze which is the original. I use the pink or original withits 20 SPF. Then the powder which you use for face, eyes, cheeks. Amazing, lightweight and good looking. They have a try me kit which are wonderful small sizes to take. You can even use the powder on the nails. and coat with clear. It is also as close to natural as you can get. The liptint that comes with the try me is a moisturizer with an SPF. Look it up on the web. I really like the line and my friends are all doing it now.

One thing I like to do is to get my eyelashes dyed before a tropical holiday. All the in and out at the beach and pool and eyemake-up goes grim. I still wear mascara but only in the evening.

I don't wear any make up ....I just use water to wash my face and never had any acne in my entire life. The two things I have used for the last 8 or so years is Coco chanel and a deodorant from the body shop.I am thinking to maybe get nail polish but this isn't important either.

Default Re: Ladies, what are your basic make-up essentials for cruis

ok let's take it one step further, what do you bring to do a " full" make-up for evenings especially for formal nights- here is where i want to try to cut back a bit. My List:
Foundation, blusher, mascara, eye-liner, 3 different eye shadows ( highlighter, lid color, smokey corner accent color), lipstick pencil, lipstick, sparkle gel for accents, loose powder, make-up brushes, lipstick brush., sparkle lip gloss. I have acrylic nails so i don't have to worry about my nails, just bring a clear top coat.

I do try to keep it simple and just pack enough make-up in a small make-up bag that goes into my carry-on. I still end up packing my own brand of skin lotion and there is the sun screen and hand lotion and now I also include some of the hand wash that you don't need water. I figure if I need something I can always pick it up onboard.

Not much here either. I have this nifty compact that holds a blush, 3 colors of eye shadow ( neutrals that will go with anything) and a lipstick. That and a tube of mascara are the only make up items I take.

I don't wear very much makeup so I don't bring much, only what I wear. My makeup essentials are foundation, undereye concealer, powder, blush, mascara, lipstick, and a coverup stick in case of sudden zits.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Make up, what is that? :-) I wouldn't know what to buy if I did have to, haven't ever touched the stuff, except maybe lipstick when I was a teenager (a few years ago)!

I'm a rather no frills type and really don't believe in the philosophy behind it. No one tells me I don't look good enough to go out in public unless I do something to my face???!!! They don't tell little boys that when they are growing up! :-)

This is just my opinion for me, please don't blast me! I've been told so many times why don't you wear make up or better yet, I'm just walking by where there happens to be a demonstration and oh, boy do they want to get ahold of me!!! This happens in stores and on cruises!!! :-)

I think my niece looks great with make up and my nephew's wifes, I just never got into it (nor do my sisters) and at this stage of my life (55), I just don't feel like spending the money!!! :-)

Make-up? The most frequently used "beauty product" this past week was a 1 litre bottle of Aloe Vera Gel for my sunburn!!
