I thought I would go ahead and join everyone else on the “what’s in my makeup bag” tag and share what I usually bring with me on a trip.
I do travel quite a lot and have learned to pack “better and less” along the way. I usually bring one or two of my favorite eye palettes with me but this time I decided not to; it just seemed a little too much, besides I have been using cream eye shadows like crazy.
So here is a brief look at what is in my travel makeup bag (no brushes).
I have quite a lot of makeup bags but this Kipling makeup bag is one of my favorites ever. I love this bag because it is versatile & has a lot of room, plus its material is water-resistant nylon. Unfortunately, they’re not sold anymore in the US (I checked recently), at least on Kipling-usa.com. Hopefully they’ll bring them back because I kind of want another one in a different color.
I always bring this slim case along with the main makeup bag. I put some of my most-used eyeliners from MAKE UP FOREVER and eye brushes. It is like a pencil case but for the eyes.
Here is what really is in my travel makeup bag. As you can see, I brought a lot of travel size items rather than those bulky, full size ones.
It may seem like a lot but trust me, I tried to pack as little as possible and these items are very basic and travel-friendly. I will review some of these more in depth on a future post if anyone is interested. What are some of your travel makeup staples that you must bring with you?
