Travel Makeup Bag

Monday, June 2, 2014



So I'm on the road again tomorrow to go visit the boyfriend. I really enjoy seeing what other bring when they travel, it helps me narrow things down and be realistic. So because I'm just going to see the boyfriend extravagant makeup would be unnecessary, its going to a very casual week for me so makeup may not even be worn. However, if we do decide to grab lunch or go to a bar this is what will be on my face. When I pack my makeup I like to categorize items, such as my face, eyes, and lips. It makes it easier for myself to not over pack, especially with the lip products. Also when traveling for short amounts of time I like to mainly bring drugstore product, because if I lose or forget to repack something its not a challenge to replace it.

FACE
Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer: A cheap nice primer, it smoothes out my skin and prolongs the wear of my foundation. 
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation [203 True Beige]: This will be my night time foundation, it has great coverage and awesome longevity. 
Pond's Luminous Finish BB Cream [medium]: Really sheer coverage, but great for day time, gives a gorgeous finish. 
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser [Neutralizer]: My dark circles have been intense lately this baby has been a life saver.
Revlon Age Defying Concealer [Medium]: This may be my new favorite from the drugstore, its pigmented, creamy, and doesn't cake up. It also does pretty good under the eyes!
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder [020 Nude Beige]: Not really sure if this gives any coverage but it does a good job of setting my foundation. 
Estee Lauder Deluxe All-Over Face Compact: Great all in one cheek quad. Check out what it looks like inside [here]
Maybelline Ultra Brow [10 Light Brown]: Because I'm expecting a casual week there is no need for perfect brows, so to keep it looking natural brow powder is the way to go. 

EYES
LORAC Eye Shadow Primer: Got this with my pro palette and have been loving it! Its also the perfect size for travel. 
Maybelline Color Tattoo [Bad to the Bronze]: Have really been loving just throwing this on for s quick eye look. 
Urban Decay Naked Basics: To keep with the neutral look of this week! I also have multiple eye looks possible. 
Maybelline Master Precise Liner [Black]: Super easy application and decent longevity, though after five hours I do notice some smudging. 
Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer [26 Noir]: One of my favorite kohl liners from the drugstore, smooth application, pigmented and long lasting!! 
Maybelline The Rocket Mascara:  Love the separation and length I get with this formula! I also love how it doesn't flake off and its removes with warm water. 

LIPS
Vaseline Lip Therapy [Cocoa Butter]: I love this stuff, its cheap and it protects my lips! What more can you ask for from a lip balm?
Maybelline Baby Lips [Cherry Me]: A sheer red that great for anytime of day!
Wet n' Wild Matte Lipstick [Bare it All]: My favorite nude from drugstore! Amazing lasting power and pigmentation. Its a bit drying but nothing crazy.
H&M Lipgloss [Nude]:  I picked this up not really expecting much, but it pretty awesome lip gloss! I picked up this color because its the closest thing to MAC's salmon lipgloss that I lost. This is a pretty good alternative for that shade. Its not super sticky and has good color payoff. If you see this when you're at H&M definitely check it out!

Of course you're going to need a way to take it all off so pack some makeup wipes!

Have a great day!
