I recently posted the contents of my makeup travel bag on Instagram and received questions about specific products. Inspired by Tiffany at Will Work For Makeup’s Packing light and just right post, I decided to share exactly what I packed.
I hesitated on whether to bring this. It does have shimmer particles that are extra visible in the sun (which I planned to be in all weekend). But ultimately I just love the finish this powder provides so much, I couldn’t leave it behind.
Madly has become my everyday, most-used blush. It adds dimension to the face in a no-effort sort of way. Plus, it goes with everything, so it’s always a safe bet when you’re not sure what looks you’ll be wearing.
Every shade I’d use for everyday looks in a super-slim, sturdy case and a mirror.
I brought along almost all of the Instant Chic collection, minus the lip gloss in Starfish (which I love, I just don’t wear lip gloss often).
One of my favorite foundations. The small, light packaging and pump top lend themselves well to travel.
I was going to the beach, so I couldn’t resist bringing along a beach tint. I chose Guava because the color works for both my lips and cheeks.
This just happens to be the mascara I’m using at the moment. I’ve been meaning to review the two FLOWER mascaras I have – they’re both great.
It’s cheap, but fits my eye shape perfectly. I have a few of these and just leave one in my travel bag, so I’m never without a reliable eye lash curler.
Last but not least, a face powder that helps control shine and gives a bit of coverage with a hint of SPF.
What’s in your weekend travel bag?
