A few weeks ago we went to Lake Charles Louisiana to visit our friend Jay Lowder and hear him preach at a church in that area. As I was packing my backpack I was thinking about the beauty products I would be taking with me. So here’s what I brought along!
When I’m traveling I like to have multi purpose products in my makeup bag. I find that if I carry single purpose products something gets lost or it just gets to crowded. My Real Techniques sponge always makes it into my makeup bag for foundation and Concealer. I choose this one over my beauty blender because of its density I feel like I use less product.
Usually I don’t use a super mattifying foundation however I don’t like traveling with my Laura Mercier setting Powder because it is WAY too messy. So I usually choose a Matte foundation to travel with. I like the maybeline fit me Matte + Poreless Foundation because I never have to do touch ups.
The Anastasia contour kit is PERFECT for traveling because the packaging is small and easy to carry around. It also has the best Bronzing, contour, and highlight colors for daytime and evening.
My go to traveling brush is the Mr. Right by Toofaced. It has a bow tie, you read correctly, a bow tie. It’s super cute but if you move the bow tie up, to make the brush more dense and you can use it for Blush, contour, and highlight.
For eyeshadow I take my Urban Decay Ultimate Basics palette. All of the colors are Matte and I have all the colors I need for a day time or nighttime look.
These are the products that always make the cut into my travel makeup bag. Everything else kind of varys on what formulas I’m loving or if I get new brushes or something. If you’re going on a road trip or traveling anywhere be mindful of the activities you’ll be doing and what products will have more than one purpose.
