Oh, you over-pack shoes? As a Beauty Blogger I over-pack makeup. When it comes to being sensible for travel in terms of fashion, I have it down. I actually lay out all of my outfits ahead of time so that I have only what I need. Everything I want to take is removed from my closet and throughout the 48 hours before my trip I remove things that aren’t must-haves. So, why can’t I do this with beauty?
I will tell you why. Because all beauty is a must-have to me! What if I NEED it?! Of course, my HG’s come along always, but depending on what you are traveling to and what events are taking place, you may need some other special items.
For this Makeup Wars, we’re taking you into our travel beauty bags to show you what we like to bring with us when we go out of town, on vacation or on any sort of trip (business or pleasure!).
So, this is probably a little bit more than what I’d actually end up taking, but I didn’t really choose an event to base this off of. I grabbed up my must haves. My absolute I’m-not-leaving-my-life-behind-for-an-airplane-without-you.
As for brushes, it’s easy to stay minimal because you can take brush cleanser in a travel bottle and wash them every night. The brushes that I have to have with me are always the Sigma F80, and MAC Brushes 168, 239, 219, 272 and 226.
There you have it! I stuck with just makeup for this post, but in terms of skin care I learned my lesson the hard way when I went to Disney World in April, so now I stick with my usual skin care from Murad as well as my frizz-free hair care from Living Proof. My fragrance of choice is Chanel Chance and I tend to try and get sample vials of that, especially if I’m on an airplane. I’ll also take whatever nail polish I’m wearing on my tips and toes as well as a top coat just in case. To see some of these things, check out a previous Makeup Wars that we did based off of our HG’s!
What are your must have travel items, beauty or otherwise?
See what the other participants in this installment of Makeup Wars came up with! I’m really excited to see what the other bloggers take with them when they travel! What WILL we think of next?!
The ladies in attendance were the ever lovely Elvira ofPink Sith, Kelly ofGouldylox and Anne ofBeauty Xpose. We had a fun time with makeup at Neiman Marcus and tons of laughs and talks over Cheesecake Factory. Unfortunately, I had to hit the road after that to head home BUT there will be another trip in the works VERY SOON so I can hang out with these ladies again and shop much, much more.
And, yes, Kelly totally picked her seat on purpose so she could be in every single picture. Just kidding. Not really.
