What’s in My Travel Makeup Bag (Video)


Hey everyone! Since it’s spring break season, I though that I would do a little travel series to show how I like to travel. So here’s a quick glimpse into my travel makeup bag. When packing, I firstly like to base my makeup routine on my travel plans and where I’m going. If I’m going on a vacation where I’m planing on being very active such a ski trip or a place where I will be doing a lot of outdoor activities like a beach vacation, I like to pack lightly. I keep my bases light and easy, my eye makeup simplified and dress up my makeup looks with statement lips for less packing. If I’m going somewhere where I’d like more variation in my makeup looks, I’ll bring a more diverse set of products. I’ll bring an eyeshadow palette with more colors, or perhaps a couple of different face products, something that can give my looks more variation. Overall, I love to pack multi-use products, such as cheek & lip stains or concealers that can be used over the entire face. After I’ve packed my travel makeup bag, I like to live out of it and use those products I packed for a day or two so I can make sure I haven’t left anything out. In this particular video, I show a average trip. For an outdoorsy trip, I’d pack less and for a trip to the city, I’d pack more.

I do love makeup, so sometimes I struggle to narrow down the products I actually need in my abbreviated routine, but you can use this as a guide to what to pack. Look below to check out my video and click on the divided image for a list of all the products that I brought with me on my travels.
