I told you all about how I pack my carry on and my in flight outfit. Now I MUST tell you about my travel makeup! Holy COW. The secrets that I am about to share with you have been learned over many years. Mistakes have been made. Bags have been ruined. Cosmetics have been taken (thank you TSA- I hope that you enjoyed that perfume.). And yes, sadly, my face has arrived at my destination more than once looking like a dried up piece of crumpled newspaper! So, I want to spare you the bother and humiliation by showing you what has now evolved into what I believe to be the perfect travel, on board make up bag. Grab your coffee and read on….
This is my current little make-up travel bag. I shop at Sephora sometimes….
(Read:a LOT. We are talking VIP member with special privileges). So, when I fly, I rely heavily on my samples for a few items. Any primer, serums or make up remover that I use are always sample sizes.
Also in my bag:
eye lash curler
beauty blender make up sponge
moisturizer (re-potted into a tiny pot that I keep for this purpose)
sample size Benefit “They’re Real” mascara
retractable bronzer brush
Cover FX Click Stick with concealer and highlighter (these things are the BOMB for travel!)
Cover FX illuminator
Laura Mercier silk creme photo edition foundation
Buxom lip gloss and
Big and Healthy lipstick both in “Dolly”
Tarte “Brazilliance Plus” bronzer (sample size that I refill)
I really need to wash that Beauty Blender sponge. Sorry about that. But yeah. It all fits into that tiny bag. I heart it. I heart make-up.
So, have I missed anything? Do you have some perfect travel make up tips? I want to hear them!
