What’s in my Makeup Travel Bag


When you’re makeup-obsessed like I am, thinking about narrowing down my makeup options to just one bag is no easy task. I tend to get just a tad (very) carried away because I think I will need ALL OF IT #Oops

After contemplating the big pile of products I took out during my first round of “narrowing down” my choices, I made three rules for myself:


1. Pick products that are smaller/travel size.

2. Pick products that have durable packaging.

3. Pick shades that "go with everything."


Keeping these rules in mind, I finally figured out what to pack in my ~super cute~ Perfecting Beauty Bag for my Memorial Day Weekend trip to NYC.



Want to know which products made the cut? Keep scrolling ;)


Oil-Free Moisturizer: I use this moisturizer every day and it’s the perfect size so there was no question about packing this one!


Cool as a Cucumber Primer: Since I knew I’d be applying a full face of makeup, I had to make sure to bring a primer that literally keeps me feeling cool all day (pun intended).


Absolute Cover Foundation #5 & Perfecting Puff: Of course, foundation is a MUST and this multi-tasking sponge helps me apply it flawlessly, while I can also use it to blend out concealer and apply setting powders.


Boho Palette: This is a must-bring item because it has eyeshadows, highlighters, bronzers, blushes, and a banana powder all in one gorgeous palette!


Verified Liquid Liner: I don’t usually wear eyeliner on my lids because it takes FOREVER, however, this liquid liner is so easy and quick to apply.

HD Volumizing Mascara - Black & Universal Eyebrow Pencil: Can’t go out without wearing these babies!


Micro Makeup Fixer: This is the perfect travel size setting spray, its so cute and it helps me keep my makeup looking on point.


Rio & Pasadena Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks: these cute peachy nude shades are perfect because they work perfectly with any look. 


Moisturizer Lipstick - Rose: This is an item I bring with me EVERYWHERE, and there will always be one in my travel bag and purse!


Cleanse it Off Wipes: After an adventure-filled day, these wipes are perfect to erase all of my makeup (but not the memories, hehe).


I hope this helps you Beauties pack for your next trip. Have any makeup travel tips? Let me know!
