9.10.2015 – Travel Makeup Bag


For the next couple of weeks I’m going to taking a couple of trips. One with family, and one to go visit friends. I thought I would share with you a couple of posts related to packing. Now, in the past I have been the queen of over packing… especially makeup. So, this time I’ve make an extra point to NOT do that! First, I’m headed to Nashville with family for a little family vacation. Then, when only two days home I’ll be headed to Southern California to see some of my best friends. Because of the short turn around, it’s even more crucial not to over complicate anything; chances are I wont be fully unpacking portions of it.

Let’s jump into it…


When I travel, I go when things I know I love! So, of course I grabbed a new bottle of my It Cosmetics CC+, for concealer both are from Maybelline 1. Age Rewind for dark circles, and True Match… mine is in the lightest shade and I use this for highlighting.


Next, Powders… I have the NYX  HD Finishing Powder in Banana, Rimmel Stay Matte, Becca highlight in Champagne Pope, and Milani baked blush in Luminoso.


Because with both trips I will be outside a lot in the heat and humidity, I packed my Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. As well as my everyday UD Eye Shadow Primer Potion.


For eyes I decided to keep it really simple and only packed one small palette. This is the Lorac Skinny Black palette. I did a full review on this if you’re interested. This is a great pallet because it’s very thin, and transitions from day to night perfectly. I also stayed with the trend of keeping products I know work for me, and I love. This keeps you from over packing for those “just in case” moments. I packed my IT Cosmetics Brow Power Pencil, my Milani Brow Gel, and my current favorite mascara; the Maybelline Lash Sensational.


Las but not least, LIPS! I’ve talked about this lip pairing before but it’s just so good I couldn’t NOT pack it! It’s just fool proof! Maybelline Sin-A-Mon lip stick, NYX lip pencil in Nude, and NYX lip gloss in Tea Rose. Perfect Nudey Pink!

Well friends, that’s all I have for my travel makeup bag! I will have a couple more travel post coming in the next few days… so stay tuned. Until next time…

xoxo H

    I love your makeup bag, too! And now you’ve given me the idea to do a post like this when I make my Ohio-to-Oklahoma-to-Los Angeles-to-Oklahoma-to-Ohio drive in the next few months. With El Nino, I’m hoping I don’t have to show all waterproof makeup… ooof.
