What's in my Travel Makeup Bag

Happy Monday friends! Apparently weather apps lie because instead of the beautiful Spring weekend we were promised it was cold and snowing! Thankfully it didn't stick, but the conditions are less than stellar for those running the Boston Marathon today! I guess colder weather is better than warm weather for the runners so wishing everyone the best of luck running today!

I had two trips back to back and really minimized my makeup bag! My go to products have changed since last year and I wanted to share what I've been using and loving! Also the Sephora VIB sale starts on Friday and I added in a few of the products that I'm picking up!

Patchology Sheet Masks || I absolutely love Patchology products. They are easy to use and their sheets masks only take 5-10 minutes to work. I got my mom and cousin hooked on their eye gels and swear by their hydrating masks when traveling. I pop one on before bed the first night and wake up fresh faced and my face is hydrated. They have an on the fly treatment kit that was specifically made for travel!

No Pore Blem Primer || I just finished this primer after about a month and half of using it and I absolutely loved it! No greasy residue on your fingers or face, blurs imperfections and feels as light as air on your skin. The only downside is that you can't get every little bit of product out because of the applicator / pump, but other than that I absolutely loved this primer and already ordered another one. It will be part of the Sephora sale for those interested!

IT Cosmetics CC Cream || Won't go into detail about this product because I've already raved about it 100 times!! It's still a staple and will be for a long time! If you haven't tried it yet, spring and summer are the perfect months to give it a whirl because you're more than likely not using heavy makeup / foundation anyway! 

Age Rewind Concealer || I had been wanting to try this concealer for years and then finally a month ago decided to get it! It is as good as all my higher end concealers and I absolutely love the applicator sponge. Easy to travel with and you can see exactly how much you've used up already!

Setting Powder || I've had this setting powder for two years and it feels like I've barely made a dent which is good. It does come in a smaller size for $15 that would be much easier to travel with! I only use this under my eyes after concealer and it never cakes like it used to!

Studio Fix Powder || I prefer a more matte finish to my look rather than dewey, so I have used this studio fix powder for YEARS! I'm not kidding when I say I've used it since I was 17 years old and absolutely love how it looks on my skin!

Makeup Forever Trio || This is probably my favorite item to travel with because I have a highlighter, bronzer and blush in one piece. You can customize this palette at Sephora with whatever colors match your complexion best and you can do a duo of bronzer and blush if you don't want the highlighter. I don't use this for my every day makeup, but when I'm traveling, it's the only thing I'll bring. 

Jordana Eyeliner || I fell in love with this eyeliner about 8 years ago and while I've tried others, none compare to this $2.39 eyeliner (sold at Walgreens, but I did find it on Amazon as well)! It never smudges and easily glides on. I don't need a sharpener for it and it lasts for a while even with daily use! 

Creamy Shadow Sticks || You'll notice that I don't have any eye shadow palettes with me when I travel! That's because I use shadow stick 95% of the time! They are easier to work with and travel so much better. I shared a couple of my favorite shadow sticks in this post! The newest one I've been trying is from Lancome in the crimson red color which is more of a brick red. I use a beige sephora shadow stick as a base and then just build my look on top of it! 

Lash Primer & Mascara || For a few months now I've been using the L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer and Voluminous Lash Paradise for my mascara. I am done with the mascara right now, so I've switched to the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir in a travel size with the same primer and loving the look! 

The lips are always something that changes. I usually have 3-4 colors with me and have recently started using this lip liner in the color "Spice" I like to throw in a smaller size of the Urban Decay setting spray, especially if I'll be out exploring all day! I will be picking up this Laura Mercier matte lipstick from the Sephora sale in the color Ruthless. I also spotted this watermelon glow pink juice moisturizer that can be used day and night - it smells amazing and I tried a sample of it and it left my skin feeling great!

  1. What a great round-up of products! I always travel with my Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray too. We were in Texas for a wedding a few weeks ago and it came in so handy with the heat! So excited for the Sephora sale! Happy Monday, Biana!

  6. Need to get that primer and sheet mask. My current makeup routine includes that CC cream and then using whatever is leftover on my brushes quickly :)

  7. Concealer seems to be the one product I continue to bounce around on! As I get older I need the concealer but am always looking for something that won't make the skin under my eyes look more wrinkly. Great review!

  8. I've had that primer in my cart, and need to pull the trigger during the sale! And I spy 2 of my holy grails - MAC Studio Fix and the KVD setting powder <3

  12. I am so behind on discovering the amazing-ness that is the It Cosmetics CC Cream! I am OBSESSED. I have the illuminating version and it's so great for my dry skin! Need to check out your setting powder because I've been having trouble with my under-eyes looking a little dry and cakey at the end of the day!

  14. Happy Monday, beautiful! These all seem like great products to travel with. I’m only familiar with the concealer, which I’ve also loved. The sponge applicator makes such a difference in the way the product looks on the skin. I need to try out shadow sticks, as I know you’ve shared your love for them before; they sound so convenient. I also need to look into that CC cream. I’ve used their concealer and love the coverage. Thanks for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

  16. Just added that setting powder to my cart. I keep hearing how great it is and you just reminded me to get it! Is there anything better to travel with than the iT CC cream? I feel like no!

  17. Good travel make up is so important. Great links.

  18. When I travel, its usually only with the youth group so while they're all about the make up with their teenage faces< i'm like, give me some under eye concealer & mascara :) haha

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the age rewind concealer and the UD setting spray. I need to try that liner, I have used a few other products from that brand and been impressed with the quality for the price! I love Loreal mascara's and have that set right now. Hope you have a great week!

  23. I really need to try mascara primer! And I don't know how I lived without setting powder under my eyes for so long. It's the best and I love that it lasts! Great tips and roundup!

  25. First off, we have been having the same weather so I get it!! Like what is the deal?! Anyways.. That mascara primer is great! Right now I'm using the Lancome one becasue I finished my other one and I might like it a little bit better. Not a fan of the price though!Thanks for mentioning the Sephora sale too because I need a few things. Oh and totally want to try those eyeshadow sticks!!! Stay warm friend! :-)

  26. I love seeing what products others use. Since you like the Loreal lash primer, you should really try their Double Extend mascara. I've been using it for over 10 years and LOVE it. (I even tried the Too Faced Better Than...mascara) Happy Monday! XO

  27. I also just discovered the MakeUp Forever Palette. I LOVE IT. I love that you can customize it (I did two eye shadows) which is perfect for me bc never use an entire palette anyways. Loved this, thanks for sharing!

  28. I usually take my essentials when I travel, I don't like to carry a lot around :)

  29. These all look like great products to travel with! Thanks for sharing!

  31. I am so ready for the VIB sale, but I will be travelling so I need to get my cart ready! This is some great stuff! Have a good week! Sorry the weekend was not as promised!

  32. Love the Age Rewind concealer! I use the neutralizer and brightener shades whenever I do my makeup. I've always wanted to try that MAC powder.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think you just sold me on trying the Jordana eyeliner! The price is awesome. I like pinpointing the must-haves for travel so you don't end up overpacking. Love my Clinique bronzer which just crumbled to pieces in the process of traveling to Houston over the weekend. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  36. If only I could travel this lightly! I have serious issues when it comes to makeup haha I love that Urban Decay setting spray though. I actually like all 3 of them. They are the best setting sprays out there in my opinion.

  37. I have yet to try Patchology masks- and definitely need to! I love that MAC powder too and it's a staple for sure :)

  38. Thank you for sharing your favorites. Everyone raves about the IT CC Cream and I must try it. Also that nice inexpensive mascara primer I am eyeing too.

    Yeah for the Boston marathon but hell no to the crappy, brutal cold weather - it is the same in Michigan.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Have you tired the new It Cosmetics Foundation, full coverage moisturizer? It's awesome. I think I might like it better than the cc cream. Plus it still have spf in it. I think you might really like it.

  40. all great rec's! the sheet masks are key for travel and i keep forgetting to stash some in my travel bag.

  46. I always love getting ideas of the products people use. Trimming down my makeup bag is one of my favorite things to pack for a trip. I don't know why but it gets me thinking about the intentional products I use daily. Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  47. Packing minimally is definitely key when traveling, although half the time it’s easier said than done. Although having your blush and bronzer all in one place definitely helps! I already bought a few things from Sephora for the sale but I call them “adult” products because I didn’t buy any fun makeup it was all just moisturizers and cleansers.

  48. Love getting makeup ideas! I keep packing less and less because I feel like half the time I don't use most of it and then I don't have to unpack it!

  49. That setting powder really does last forever!
