What's in my Travel Makeup Bag?

Hi guys!

I got a few days of vacation from work, so I decided to pack my bags and do a little quick visit to see my mom.

As we all know, it's better to travel light. Airport security can be a BIATCH. My advice is don't take anything that will make you cry if then threw it away. Also, make sure that all the liquid products are under 3 fl oz and in a separate bag.

This is what I brought with me:

My skincare:
--Neutrogena Makeup Remover towelettes to take off all my makeup.
--Dr. Haushka (sp?) Rose Day cream <--I use this as a night cream because it's so emollient. Also it has no SPF.
--Shiseido Sunscreen for face/body SPF38 <--My mom already told me that there will be a lot of outdoor activities, so I brought reinforcement.
--Neutrogena Ageless Essentials face lotion SPF25 <--Not a huge fan, but I don't have any other day cream smaller.

My Makeup:
--Milani Glow Natural foundation: I would've brought MAC F&B, but that's too big. This is more convenience and has less risk of spilling.
--Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark circle roller <--eyecream/concealer in one
--Dior Long-wearing moisturizing concealer <--need it b/c of my DARK DARK circles
--Coverblend concealer<--for brightening up my under eye area
--Estee Lauder Doublewear Max Coverage foundation in Creamy Vanilla <--I made a little sample of this for ease of carrying. I use this strictly for pimples, scars, etc.

--MAC Gold Go Lightly bronzer to give my face a sunkissed look.
--MAC blush in Harmony to contour
--MAC Soft & Gentle MSF to highlight

I brought all my Ben Nye palettes with me.

This has some bright colors just in case I'm in a bright-eye kinda mood.

This is all the essential colors for my smokey/basic kinda mood.
My favorite blush palette. There's a color for every mood/occasion.

--Maybelline Colossal Volume mascara in Waterproof <--I'm out of my Shiseido Lasting Lift. :(
--Lancome Hypnose drama <--to add volume
--Dior Diorshow Maximizer mascara primer<--to fake length and volume

--WnW gel liner
--Prestige Total Intensity in black <--LOOOOOOOOVE this liner
--Duo glue

I didn't pack any lip products because my mom will have a ton. I don't do lips anyway.

Hope that was helpful enough. I know that "what's in your bags" tag are always fun to watch/read. Enjoy!

xoxo,

Tao

Thanks for sharing and letting us snoop in your make up/traval bag. Yes airport security can be bad, and it's great that you remind us to pack smart. Leave those bigger items at home or depot some for your trip in needed. Have a great time in the summer sun and enjoy your vacation.

You don't do lips? Your lips always look super pretty in your videos!

Anyway, have a great weekend!

I love all those 'what's in your makeup bag' posts!! *___*

Oh!! The Dr. Hauschka Rose Cream! I love that smell so much! ^^ However, like you said the major downfall is that it has no SPF!!
