What's In My (Travel) Makeup Bag

Hello lovelies!  I thought this post might be helpful for anyone packing for a trip so I took a photo of everything I packed in my travel makeup bag. As you all know, I wear the same makeup daily, but I added a palette with 6 eye shadows (from MAC's Tartan Tales collection) that I could use to make a dramatic eye look if I needed to.

Here's what I packed:

What are your makeup packing essentials? I tried to pare this down and not bring 4 different mascaras and different blushes---I just stuck with my favorite, most-used products. Also---this doesn't include all of my skin and hair care products, those are packed in a ziplock separately.




  1. Great choices. I swear by those Boscia Green Tea Blotting Tissues!

    You must be getting so excited! Have fun!

  2. those are some of my favorite products!! loooveee nars laguna bronzer and mac fluidliner!!


  3. i love seeing what people pack for traveling...love these essentials!

  4. Love your picks-- you have an awesome brush collection!

  5. I really want MAC omega - apparently it's good for eyebrows!!

  6. A girl after my own heart =) You actually packed quite reasonably. I bring all that and more when I go on vacation! Unnecessary of course!

  7. I'm pleasantly stunned at how small this is! But tbh, you really don't need much more do you?

    I love packing a couple extra blushers to change up looks a bit... oh and I have a funny habit of painting my nails on a long-haul flight. My H gets majorly embarassed but I think it's the perfect opportunity to paint them!!!

  8. I can't go without my MAC 187 brush (mostly because I use a liquid foundation). But that's just me... I prefer it over a traditional foundation brush. Love seeing what you're packing! Also, I love the MAC tartan gift sets they've got going on right now - I bought some of the things for myself!!

  9. V,

    What brushes did you pack? Mac?

  10. anon they are a mix of MAC and Sigma and one sephora brush (the kabuki)
