What's in your travel make up bag?

No matter where I am travelling these staples are always in my bag.. Laura mercer tinted moisturizer, blush (light pink), mascara, anastasia tinted brow gel, pink lipstick and my naked palette. 


What are your products that you always travel with?

i love trying out new makeup samples while traveling, the brighter the better. I'll bring delux samples of everything I can. The only regular stuff I'll bring is foundation or a bb cream, skin care and brushes. If I have a neutral pallette I like, I'll bring that too. As long as I have a good conditioner, I can use any shampoo. 


When travelling for work, I have to be a little more subdued in makeup so then I make sure to have a neutral pallette with minis for after work.

Waterproof mascara (I generally travel for work and those end up being crazy long days or family emergencies/funerals, so I don't normally wear waterproof mascara but when I'm traveling I make sure to have it.)


Setting spray

Perfume samples


Deoderant wipes

Makeup remover wipes

Deluxe sample of face cleanser

Foil samples of exfoliant (# depends on length of trip)

Moisturizers--face, hands, eye cream, nighttime lip treatment



Nail File

Brushes; face set and eye set


I will pick a palette or two, a blush or two, a lipstick or two, and face powder depending on the trip and what's appropriate.


(I feel like I always end up bringing way more than this! LOL)

I'm leaving for Costa Rica in a week and I'm trying to figure out what to bring with me. Makeup over there is very basic. Most girls that I know own the bare minimum and the last time I went, even with a light hand, I always had more than everybody else. So I might just take mascara (Maybelline Lash Sensational), a black liner (I really like the waterproof one from Sephora's brand), concealer (Maybelline Fit Me), and my bare minerals foundation. A fun lipstick and a nude one might round that out. I think I'm gonna take one of my Tarte circle palettes just in case I need my makeup fix.

I will preface this by saying I don't usually wear BB creamer foundation or the like, and I bring a lot of skincare:


Makeup setting spray (UD De-Slick)

mascara + primer (Dior primer in the white tube, and Diorshow currently)

LM Caviar sticks in gold, and lilac

black eyeliner (usually just pencils, unless I know I will be crying/sweating/working 10+ hours then I will bring a gel and brush, usually just black, but sometimes I'll throw in brown or blue)

2-3 blushes (1 lighter pink, 1 darker, and a coral - I bring Hourlass since they are smaller, sometimes just the palette)

lippies - usually 2-3 + a balm, but they stay in my purse almost all the time


Blush brush, liner brush (if gel pot liner), and that's about it, everything else can go on with fingers or rolls on Smiley Happy

perfume sample vials of 2-3 perfumes

Forgot: Besame powder Smiley Happy


If I know I'll be going out at night I will bring LM Artist palette for some smokey eye drama and an eyebrow pencil, since I have been traveling for school stuff lately I haven't brought them with me, and have been ok without it. I bring more eye brushes for fancy event traveling (weddings, and sometimes vacation)

Forgot: my new Opal mini Smiley Happy

Reviving this because I hope to see some new posts from all of you! I'll be headed to NYC on a mini vacation next week, and I don't want to pack my entire life, but I'm definitely inclined to. Anyone care to add or update their list?

What is this travel bag of which you speak?  This is when I find the biggest pouch I own and fill it with every product I own including shadows and lipsticks I never wear, just in case, right?


jk.  I try to pack as many samples as possible, and a nudes eyeshadow palatte.  If I'm traveling for work and will be solo in a hotel, I will actually pack extra skin care (masks, exfoliator samples, etc) and spa-ify.


If travel involves flights, I carry on a separate pouch with samples of :  eye cream, moisturizer, oil, body better and such.   Pre takeoff, I use a wipe to cleanse and then rehydrate as much as possible.   On a longer flight I will repeat because I am crazy and planes are dry.
