What's in my travel makeup bag?

Hi guys, sorry I haven't updated my blog in a while; I was away in Chicago for a conference. For my 6 day trip, I packed makeup that made me look polished, but not colorful. After all, this was a scientific conference. No one was going to appreciate a Manish Arora pallete on my eyes.

I picked up a generic travel kit that included a soap case, hairbrush, toothbrush holder, and 2 empty bottles ($2.99!). I didn't take the bottles or hair brush, just the toothbrush holder, the soap holder, and the travel kit. The soap holder was filled with hair accessories, q-tips and toothpaste. The travel kit contained makeup:

MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation
Maybelline Dream Mousse in Soft Plum
Mary Kay Mineral Powder Brush
Mary Kay Signature Concealor
Loew Cornell concealor brush
Lancome eye makeup remover
MAC Powerpoint Engraved
MAC Fluidline Blacktrack
Kat von D eye palette in Ludwig
Loew Cornell 1/8" angled shader
Coastal Scents blending fluff
Random Target eyelash curler
Maybelline Define-a-Lash
Egyptian magic (sample size)
MAC Fastlane
C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine

I was kind of strict about how many "me too" products I took along just cuz I like to travel light. I'm overall quite happy with everything I took, but the only thing I'd change is to take more than one lip color. What kind of stuff can you not live without when you travel?

I always tend to take WAAAAAY too much. Too many brushes and too many lipsticks. Silly amounts of "just in case I might need" products. I never need as much as I think I do. Would rather have too much than too little.

Also I nominated you for a couple of blog awards hun. Pop on over and check it out!

I don't over pack with makeup as I'm makeup challenged. Ah ha. But shoes are another story.

I recently went on a holiday trip for Diwali.

Here is what I took:
1. Ponds Tinted Moisturizer
2. Maybelline Dream Mousse foundation
3. Maybelline Chai Latte Eye Palette
4. Maybelline Define a Lash (same as you)
5. Lakme Glide on eye color in Glimmering Plum & Henna Gold
6. Diana of London eyeliner in Bronze & Gold
7. Diana of London Liquid eyeliner in silver & gold
8. Maybelline Dream mousse blush in peach satin
9. Lakme lip gloss no 21
10. Body shop cheek & lip tint
11. Jordana Juicy lip tint in berry wine
12. Nivea lip balm in cherry.

I feel that you can never have too many eyeliners. ever. hence i tend to carry too many of them. even then I keep missing the ones i leave behind. lol..
