[What’s in my travel makeup bag?]

July 23, 2017

I’ve been traveling quite a bit for work lately and I thought I’d turn my makeup bag inside out and share some of my go-to’s lately.

First things, first. I love blush, I think blush pretty much makes everything happen. Second to that is anything skincare. Between plane rides and airports, gross hotel rooms and meeting up with new people, I try and help my skin not totally give up in transit.

My packing list:

  • Moisturizer with SPF
  • Foundation
  • Concealer
  • Blush
  • Eyeshadow
  • Two brushes
  • Face cleanser
  • Highlighter

These are just a few of my staples, that vitamin spray is key for travel

They say this is the magic $8 mascara and I second that. Be warned, it is waterproof but I honestly didn’t realize for weeks.

Emergency lipstick in a neutral color


Some of the listed items above feel unnecessary but honestly really help. I find the highlighter just makes me look awake. Keeping it simple also just helps make me not seem to run down and when all else fails, that lipstick doubles as a tint of blush. I’m also using this opportunity to rave about my first Glossier shipment, I ended up taking this trio of balm dot coms with me everywhere so in hindsight I would definitely add them to my to-go makeup bag. For those unfamiliar, this is a cult product as of late, as a New Yorker turned Californian, I find that both coasts are obsessed. I took the dive and I have to say I get what all the buzz is about.

Hooray it arrived

Filled with stickers…

And, lip balms!
