What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag

I left bright and early Saturday morning for a week-long business trip, so sadly there isn’t much excitement to share in a Weekend Wrap-up this week. Rather, since I’m traveling, I thought I’d share the items that made it into my travel makeup bag. I’d say there’s a good mix of old favorites and new products I’m trying out. Most were selected because they’re either easy to travel with, good for natural (work day) makeup looks, or because I couldn’t go seven whole days without them– or a combination of all three. If you’d like to hear my thoughts on any of these products I’d be happy to do an in-depth review, just leave me a comment and let me know!


Face: NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray, Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Concealer (Light), Revlon ColorStay foundation (110 Ivory), Maybelline Dream Lumi highlighting concealer (Radiant), Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer, NXY blush (Taupe), & Revlon Photoready cream blush (Coral Reef)

Eyes: Maybelline The Rocket mascara (Black waterproof), Maybelline Great Lash mascara (Clear), Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow (Nude Pink- limited edition), Lorac Unzipped eyeshadow palette, Jordana Fabuliner eyeliner (Black), & Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal eyeliner (Black)

Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (Honey) & L’oreal Le Matte lipcolor (Matte For Me- limited edition)

Tools: Real Techniques Stippling Brush, Sigma Large Angled Contour Brush (F40), Sigma Large Powder Brush (F30), Sigma Tapered Blending Brush (E40), Rite Aid Renewal Eyeshadow Brush, Sigma Small Angle Brush (E65), Eyelash curler (not sure the brand, but it’s from the drugstore) & a Beauty Blender

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into my travel makeup bag and that your week is off to a great start!
