What's in My Travel Makeup Bag?

I used to travel light. Really. Now? Not so much.
It's hard to choose which makeup products to bring, even though I know for sure that I won't use them all. But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do - in this case, choose!
I try to bring products that I know I will use every single day.

♥ Maybelline B.B Cream (Click here for review)
♥ Laura Geller Balance-N-Brighten Powder Foundation
♥ SheerCover Concealer

I bring BB cream instead of foundation because foundation can sometimes be a little to heavy, and I want something that is light-weight since I'm gonna be outside for hours. I also bring a powder foundation instead of a regular powder because powder foundation can give extra coverage that a BB cream lack of. This particular one by Laura Geller really fulfills to its name - Balance-N-Brighten. =)
Having a two-tone concealer makes it practical to cover up your imperfection and dark circles under your eyes. 

 ♥Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Hot Tamale
♥Cover Girl Cheekers in Sierra Sands
♥ theBalm Hot Mama! blush
♥theBalm Bahama Mama bronzer
♥e.l.f bronzing powder

Okay, I know I don't need more than one blush and one bronzer but I can't help it. I love blushes. I love bronzers. The Dream Bouncy blush by Maybelline lasts for a long time. It's like a cream blush but has texture like a play-dough. It's so cool! It is also a great base for your powder blush.
As for bronzer, the e.l.f bronzing powder gives you a golden-y finish. The Bahama Mama one is darker, which is a nice contour to give definition to your face. So what I do, I lightly tap my brush on the e.l.f bronzing powder and put it all over my face. Then with the Bahama Mama, I put it under my cheekbones, forehead, and on the jaw line. 

♥Urban Decay Primer Potion
♥Rimmel Quad in Smokey Brun (review and look with this quad click here)
♥e.l.f Quad in Day to Night
♥Maybelline Master Drama eyeliner in Midnight Master
♥Almay one coat get up&grow mascara

I'm not a big fan of overdoing my eyes when I'm travelling. I usually just go with a black eyeliner and mascara. But to 'umph' up your look, eyes are very important. You can go by with just smokey eyes and look completely different. I bring neutral palette by Rimmel. Love this quad so much. It's a great substitute for the Naked palette. I bring e.l.f quad which I personally think good pigmented eyeshadows but a little bit too powdery and they oxidize really easily after few hours. 

♥Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Petal Glow (smells good and looks good! - Click here for swatch)
♥MAC Tendertone Lip Balm in Purring
♥Makeup Forever Aqua Lip Liner in 1C (FOTD: Neutral Matte Lips)
♥Wet 'N Wild Liptsick in 902C (featured in my LOTD: Nude Nude Natural)
♥Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brule
♥Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in 730-Coral Gleam 
♥Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in 235-Warm Me Up

Remember when I said I love blushes I love bronzers? Well, I looovvveee lip products. Really. I always have one in my purse and re-apply it through out the day. Lipsticks/Lipgloss was the toughest one for me to choose because I think they can give your face a nice touch even without the other products. For travelling, I bring neutral colors that go pretty much with anything. 

What's in YOUR travel makeup bag? ;)
