Packing Up Your Beauty Bag For Balik Kampung

It’s Balik Kampung season and if you haven’t packed, this is a guide for you on what to pack for your beauty bag!


First and foremost, never forget your sunscreen. You will be under the Sun while you’re visiting from one house to another and you’re exposed to it while driving, so it’s extremely important to bring your sunscreen to keep your skin protected from the harmful UV rays. 


Next, transfer your usual skincare products into travel sized bottles. From cleansers to toners, moisturisers and serums, you don’t have to bring everything back and just pick the most important ones. Storing them in smaller containers is useful so that you don’t have to carry a heavy load of bags. After all, you won’t be staying there longer than a week or two. 


Packing your makeup might be a tricky thing and you might feel the need to bring everything back to your kampung. This is where you have to plan your makeup look ahead of time and just bring your favourite makeup products, 2-3 of each category. 


For example, 3 lipsticks, 3 blushes, 2 eyeshadow palettes, and pack the others accordingly. You don’t need to bring 3 mascaras and 3 eyeliners, btw. It’s good to pack light so that you won’t be overwhelmed when you have to use your makeup during Hari Raya itself.


Don’t forget to bring your beauty sponge and a few of your trusted makeup brushes, along with a powerful setting spray and a makeup remover. The final two are so important because you need your makeup to stay as long as it can and you don’t want to end the day with your Raya makeup still sticking on your face! 


Insert your acne patches and a facial mask so that you can treat your skin the night before Hari Raya. Acne patches are crucial to treat those last minute pimples that decided to ‘beraya’ with you! Remember, never pop your pimple and just let it pop on its own.


Another two non-beauty items related but deserve a space in your beauty bag: deodorant and sanitary pads, especially those who will be menstruating during the balik kampung season. Even if you won’t, you can keep one or two, just in case! Or if any of your relatives need an emergency pad. Deodorant? Pretty self-explanatory. 


Now that you’re ready to balik kampung, be sure to double check your stuff so that nothing important gets left behind, especially your baju raya and shoes! 


From the entire Velvet Vanity family, we would like to wish our besties a warm Selamat Hari Raya and we hope that your celebration will be filled with blessings, abundance of joy and tons of yummy traditional delicacies. Stay safe!

    Do you want to profit in 2024?

    You have infinite options:

    Affiliate marketing… writing content… build your own app… become an influencer…

    In all the years I’ve been online, I’ve tried ALL of these methods (and 100s more)

    But, millions later – there’s ONE method I recommend – above all others:

    Selling your own digital product.

    And more specifically…

    Selling your own software product, in the Internet marketing niche, and promoting it with affiliate traffic.


    That sounds eerily specific – and it is. Because…

    I shouldn’t need to “convince” you this method works.

    Chances are you got on this list because you at some point bought a marketing software!

    The fact you’re reading this is proof that this method works.

    And… how many marketing tools have you bought to get here?

    But don’t think yours is a unique situation…

    Every week millions buy marketing products in this same way.

    You’ve probably worked this out a long time ago… you already know it’s a billion-dollar business…

    But, until now, you might have thought:

    “yeah but there’s no way I could do that, so I’ll just look at the other methods out there…”

    Maybe you concluded:

    • You can’t create your own software products
    • You don’t know any big affiliates who would promote you
    • There’s no way you could create a professional sales website
    • You simply could never afford a $5k copywriter to write a script
    • Nor can you do all the “little” jobs like logo creation, ecovers etc

    And most of all you probably decided…

    “I would love to have my own legit, unique software business… but just don’t know how to put it all together”

    Well, guess what…

    I’ve just come across a $20 million marketer who automated and simplified all these steps.


    By REMIXING what other six-figure marketers are doing.

    And then automated this entire process!

    This marketer’s name is CHRIS, and…

    This is something he’s been working on for over 2 years!

    In fact, he tried to automate this #1 method… for over a decade…

    But it’s such a big, hairy problem, that he just couldn’t crack it… until now.

    And, as of today, it’s here!

    Now, I can say that, for the first time ever, anyone can tap into the ultimate business model on the planet:

    Selling your own Internet marketing software.

    OK, so here’s the score…

    Go see yourself:


    You won’t find a better solution for you to plug into the #1 business on the planet.

    OK, enough talk.

    If you’re at all curious about what he’s up to, then hit this link and watch the intro video…

    At the very least, it will show you some information that no-one has disclosed before.

    OK, here’s that link:

    Click Here



    P.S. This offer is running for the last few weeks of February.

    Then early March Chris is going to increase the price.

    He threw everything at this, including the kitchen sink…

    He spent $200k+ to make this software for you.

    That’s the good news. The bad news? It’s due a price increase.

    No joke. Go here to see what I mean…
