What's In My Travel Makeup Bag?

For spring break I took a short trip to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, so I thought I'd show you all what I decided to bring. I'm actually proud of myself for packing somewhat light! Most of these products are my essential, everyday products.

Here is the makeup bag I used. I got it from Target almost a year ago and it is by Sonia Kashuk. I really like the size of this bag because it has 3 separate compartments.

The top section has a brush holder and I brought a mixture of Mary Kay, Sigma, and Elf brushes

 In the next section I brought my Balm Jovi palette from The Balm. This palette is awesome for travel because it is so flat and compact. It comes with a nice selection of eyeshadows with a mixture of shimmer and matte finishes. It also has a blush, a highlighter, and two lip colors.

This last compartment hold the rest of the makeup I brought. Again, I am so happy I convinced myself to pack lightly!

The rest of the eye products I bought were the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner Pen, Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Zero, Tarte Cream Eyeshadow in Slate, Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, Maybelline Rocket Volum Mascara, and Mary Kay Eyeshadow Primer.

Since I am having a good skin week and I knew I wouldn't want to wear heavy foundation all I brought was primer, powder and blush. I brought the Maybelline Fit Me Powder, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Flushed, and Mary Kay Oil Mattifier.

Lastly, here are the lip products I brought: Maybelline Baby Lips in Coral Crush and Grape Vine, Maybelline Color Whisper in A Plum Prospect, and Mary Kay Lip Gloss in Berry Tarte. Wow, can you tell that I love purple lip colors?

I hope you enjoyed seeing the products I took with me! How much makeup do you normally take when you go on vacation?

    1. Thanks for dropping by! I have gotten so much better with packing makeup. I use to bring a huge makeup bag even for one night trips! I feel like you can never have to much options!

    1. Thank you! And thanks for following!

  3. Great post. I have a problem with always taking way too much on vacation and then I don't end up using some of it. I am going away in a couple of months so I really need to cut back the size of my makeup bag like you do and try to take less.


  4. I just found your blog on Aloha Friday and started following on GFC. I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts. I always wear the same makeup because I have no idea what colors will work for me :(
