Travel Makeup Essentials!

Hi guys! Packing for a trip is so hard; especially packing makeup! I never know what to bring and what to leave, so I just try to bring as little as possible. Today I am going to show you what makeup I am packing for my trip tomorrow. We are only going to be gone for one night, so this shouldn’t be THAT difficult.

Face Products:


Benefit POREfessional Primer – this is my favorite face primer, it fills in lines and pores and helps your makeup last all day. I am bringing this teeny travel-size tube.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation in 10 Beige – this is a light to medium coverage foundation that gives a very natural and light finish. I also like how it’s in a plastic bottle, so I won’t have to worry about it breaking on the plane.

Make Up For Ever HD Powder – I’m bringing this tiny mini-size translucent powder to set my face and under eye concealer. This is a really great powder and doesn’t add any additional coverage to your face.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair– I am bringing this concealer because it is a good multi-purpose one. I can use it on any spots/discoloration on my face, and also on dark circles.

NYX Blush in Peach– this blush is my favorite at the moment. It is the perfect combo of peach and pink, and goes with any makeup look.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer – this is my go-to matte bronzer, and it’s good for contouring also. I can’t leave home without it!

Eye Products:


Naked Basics Palette – this is the perfect travel palette! It is really small, and it’s got a matte highlight color, medium brown transition colors, and a black.

Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Cordura – I’m bringing this in addition to Naked Basics because I am not really a fan of totally matte eyes. This duo is amazing and I don’t have any colors like this in any of my other palettes. I will mix these colors with my matte ones in the Naked Basics palette.

Urban Decay Double Ended Eyeliner in Corrupt and Zero – this is a double ended eyeliner with a black and a shimmery dark brown. Some days I feel like black, and some days I feel like wearing brown, so this will be a good one to take.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara – I’m bringing this mascara because it’s a sample size, and it’s basically the high-end version of my beloved Maybelline Rocket mascara. It keeps a curl all day, and adds volume and length to the lashes.

Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Brunette – this is my go-to brow product, I mix the two colors together to give me natural looking eyebrows.

Lip Products:


Maybelline Color Whisper in Made It Mauve – this is a perfect neutral balm-y lipstick that is really hydrating and gives a sheer wash of color.

NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Dolly Pink – this is a bright pink lipgloss that is not sticky and perfect to wear on it’s own.

Dior Addict Lip Glow in Pink – I love this lip balm. When you first look at it, it’s a very, very, sheer pink that doesn’t look like it would give off very much color. It is basically like a mood-lipstick…(remember those?!) and it reacts with your body chemistry and changes color! It turns a medium pink on me, and it so flattering and hydrating on the lips.

Ok, so that is all I am going to pack for my trip! What are your must-have products for travel?

Let me know if you would like an in-depth review/demo on any products shown!

Thanks for reading! 🙂
