So being in and out of the hospital quite a bit makes me have a makeup bag to go almost always. A lot of times for travel I use deluxe samples or travel size stuff to take up less room. This is why I'm so adamant about always using promo codes to get free deluxe samples of things from Sephora and Ulta. Even if you don't know if you'll use it, there's no harm in trying it.
This is going to be cut and dried kids. Just literally the essentials.
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
Real Techniques Setting Brush
Angled blush brush
Blending brush for face
Crease Brush (Morphe 441 or Sigma E25)
Pencil Brush (Serenity + Scott travel size
Large Crease Brush (Morphe E27)
I usually just take a BB Cream. My pick is Dr. Jart+ BB Cream (I use this because it's not too much hassle and easier on your skin than foundations)
Makeup Forever HD pressed powder travel size (for setting the under eye and the rest of the face)
Benefit Hoola Bronzer ( I use this for bronzer/contour and as a crease color to define the eye socket some
I use the Anastasia quad palette that is interchangeable and pick 4 shadows to take with me usually all matte. Or I take the Kat Von D Shade Light quad palette in Rust but it's bulkier.
Benefit Gimme Brow Volumiizing Fiber Gel in Dark (to lightly fill in and give brows some shape)
Liquid Liner (sometimes I use this sometimes I don't but you can't go wrong with winged liner. You look more pulled together with it even when you're doing very little)
L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara
Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer
Sephora Collection Bright Future Corrector in Peach (I can't not have peach correctors with me)
Bobbi Brown Face Base (awesome moisturizer)
For Skin Care
Kiehl's line reducing eye brightening concentrate eye cream (again awesome)
Makeup Wipes (I'm using Burt Bee's Cucumber and Sage right now)
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, or Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash ( I prefer Fresh though because it's easier to pack)
Glam Glow Thirsty Mud as my night moisturizer and it's also like a sleeping facial
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye Concentrate as my night eye cream
Burts Bees lip balm in squeeze tube.
Most every skin care item I take in in a squeeze tube so that they fit into my makeup bag easier. Which makes traveling easier and less messy.
That's pretty much it. When I look at it, it seems like a lot.
