Travel Makeup Bag

Whenever I go out of town, I have the hardest time figuring out what makeup to pack. In this post I will be showing you what I usually pack on vacation. 

When packing it is important to save space. So packing thin pallets or sets is ideal because the products take up a minimal amount of space. 

The first thing I like to pack is a brush set.  I packed my five piece Sephora brush set    because it has very sleek packaging and is easy to pack. It has a blush brush, a powder brush, an eyeliner brush, an eyeshadow brush and a smudge brush. They are all high quality and work well. I also packed a makeup sponge. 


To the right, I packed my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in the shade sand. This is nice to have because it still gives you coverage but it isn't as heavy as foundation. It also has SPF which is very important, especially if you are going to a warm, tropical place. 


I also packed my 5 favorite Mac lipsticks. I like having different lipsticks while traveling because they can change your makeup look from day to night without having to do much. 

Next up I packed my powder from Benefit. This is nice because it also has SPF. You can wear it alone or with a foundation. 

I made sure to grab my favorite perfume. I can't really go any where without it. 

I took basic black eyeliner and mascara with me along with brow gel. I also packed clear mascara. 

Finally I packed a Sephora neutral palette instead of my Mac neutral palette  because if that got lost, stolen, broken ect. I would cry my eyes out. So when packing, make sure to pack makeup that you wouldn't be devastated if something happened to it.
