|I tried to make this photo all artsy with stuff tumbling out of the bag.|
My sparkly purple makeup bag is the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Quinceanera bag (no longer available).
Here's what made the cut:
Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer -- This is my favorite "base" product. I don't usually wear a true foundation on a daily basis, but if we were going to get dressed up for any reason, I would take a foundation with me.
Wet 'n' Wild Coverall Pressed Powder -- This just happens to be the setting powder I'm using right now. I want to try the Rimmel Stay Matte powder next.
Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow -- I like how this has pink and coral colors so it works with cool and warm-toned looks. Plus, it has some light shimmer to it, so it gives a little luminosity to the skin, and I can skip the highlighter.
Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Corrector -- My favorite concealer.
LORAC Creamy Brow Pencil in Auburn -- A pencil with a spoolie brush on one end is convenient.
Urban Decay Primer Potion -- If I'm going to wear eyeshadow, I need a primer. (I don't feel the same way about traveling with face primers, because the serum I use in my skincare regime works as a primer if I want to use it as such).
Tarina Tarantino Hyperliner eye pencil in Tommy Jet -- A great waterproof black pencil liner.
Too Faced Pretty Rebel eyeshadow palette -- There are so many looks that can be created with this palette, and the shadows themselves are amazing. I could have picked the Naked or Naked 3 palette, but my family kind of gets a kick out of my colorful eyeshadows, so I chose this.
Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara -- My favorite everyday mascara at the moment. I considered putting in my Benefit They're Real mascara, but I want something that removes easily, and I don't need the dramatic lashes that mascara gives me when I'm just visiting my family.
Eco Tools Travel Powder Brush -- I think this came in their 5 piece mineral brush set (I acquired it quite a while ago). I use it as a blush brush.
Eyeshadow Brushes: E.L.F. Eyeshadow "C" brush, MAC 217 blending brush, Sephora Crease brush, Sonia Kashuk blending brush (it doesn't have a number or name on it), Sephora cat eyeliner brush (came in a set with another brush).
I also considered throwing in Josie Maran Coconut Water Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise, Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar (which is held together by packing tape), and Benefit Speed Brow brow gel.
I haven't included lip products, because I carry those in my purse. I'll have to do a "what's in my purse?" post soon.
If I was just going overnight, I would take less than this. Probably just tinted moisturizer, blush, mascara, brow gel, a cream eyeshadow so I can skip the eyeshadow brushes (I usually take Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze), and what ever lippies are in my purse.
How much do you take with you for short trips? Have you ever regretted not having something with you?
