Welcome back to my blog, or if you are new here I’m so excited you decided to stop by. I hope you like, comment and subscribe so you don’t miss out on any future posts.
Today’s post is all about what is in my travel make up bag. I recently was reading an issue of US Weekly and became fascinated with the “what’s in my bag” feature article they do with random celebrities. For some reason I’ve always been fascinated by what other people are using and loving or hating. I have also always found it to be challenging to know exactly what beauty products to pack when traveling because I’m a beauty/makeup addict and have way too much stuff to choose from.
Up until recently I was packing a huge makeup bag when I traveled every single time. A huge bag of just make up, as that didn’t even include the additional bag that I would pack that included my toothbrush and toothpaste, skin care products, night cream, shower stuff, hair stuff etc. It was insanity I tell you!
So in an effort to minimize my bags when I travel I have been a lot more thoughtful on what makeup I am packing. My plan of attack is to try to choose the things I know are tried and true and that won’t let me down. My one golden rule is to never bring a brand new product that I’ve never tried before because trying a new look or product can be risky when traveling. No one wants to end up looking like a hot mess when they are away from their full makeup arsenal now do they?
Here is what was in my bag on my most recent trip out of town…
For the details on what made me choose said items check out my vlog post below as well.
Primer: Smashbox Photo Finish
Concealer: Younique Skin Perfecting Concealer (color Organza)
Under eye concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin (color Warm Light)
Foundation: Younique Mineral Touch Powder Foundation (color Organza)
Bronzer: Physcians Formula Butter Bronzer
Highlighter & Blush: MAC Nutcracker Sweet Peach Face Compact (Tutu/At Dusk) – this was limited edition and is no longer available unless you buy it on eBay.
Eyeliner: Jordana Easyliner retractable pencil (color Jet Black) – this is available at Walgreens
Eyeshadow: L’Oréal Infallible in Endless Pearl and a Bareminerals duo called Curtain Call (colors Matinee and Opening Night) – this duo has been discontinued and is no longer available sadly
In the effort of full disclosure I must admit that I went back and forth on a lot of these items countless times and couldn’t make a decision because naturally I have sooooo many favorites!
What’s in your travel make up bag? Do you pack everything but the kitchen sink when you travel like I used to or are you good and just choosing the bare minimum to take with you? How do you decide what to take?
Until next time,
