Travel Make-Up Bag

How can I not travel anywhere without makeup?

Don’t get me wrong though. I’m all about inner beauty and embracing the skin you were born with, but there is nothing wrong with looking more awake (that’s my excuse for make up lol).

I’m currently at home in my bed, ready to go places and the following are items I brought with me, all the way from the east coast to the west. I’ll try to find links for everything!


About a month ago or so when Tarte released their Holiday 2014 set, I bought the Brushed With Destiny set (can be bought here // review) and this gorgeous make up bag came with it, holding all the brushes.

Of course, this is the perfect make up bag and saved me from having to spend additional money on buying a travel make up brush case and make up case (which I had been looking into before but promptly stopped looking at after receiving this amazing bag).


This is how I positioned everything. You can all see that I didn’t bring any of my Tarte brushes and it’s not because they are not good, but they do not fit my need for the particular make up I am bringing.



From top to bottom:

Sigma Large Angled Contour F40 

Sigma Flat Kabuki F80

Real Techniques Stippling Brush

EcoTools Bamboo Powder Brush

Sigma Precision Tapered P86

I only wanted to bring the essentials and these are all the brushes I would use on a daily basis (unless I am not wearing blush or concealer which is most of the time my case). I love all these brushes and if I had to give up on all my brushes just for these 5, I would.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Powdered Blush in Amour 

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow 

Dior Diorskin Pore Minimizer

Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation

The make up I bring with me is make up I wear on a daily basis and this is it. My everyday make up for my face.

Pencil Sharpener (Brand- Australis)

Tarte Lights Camera Splashes Waterproof Mascara 

Tarte smolderEyes Brown 

I’m all about bold eyes and, well, I bring a sharpener because the pencil gets blunt with continual use.



Left to Right:

MAC Viva Glam I Lipstick

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Sucre

I bought Sucre a couple of weeks ago and it is my official every day lip color. However, since I am home for Thanksgiving, it only makes sense to have a bright lip or, at least, a celebratory lip worthy of the celebration. A everyday pink and a deep red lip.

Make Up Remover

Does this even need explaining?
