What's in my Make Up Bag : Travel Edition (Summer 2013)

Hi Everyone, 
I was going through my drafts and I found a post that was ready to be posted but somehow I forgot. 
I hope you don't mind me posting this now, I did take this makeup with me on a weekend trip this summer (Camping) but I do like all the products still and I would probably take very similar/same makeup with me next time.

I love what's in my makeup bag posts but it is difficult for me to make those since i don't keep my makeup in a bag.
But when I do go away, I make sure I pick makeup I will use!
Some might think that I do take a lot of make up with me, but i rather be prepared than not to bring what I need. I think that with this makeup it is fairly standard for a every day make up. 

I had to take my Dr. Jart BB cream, this is by far the best BB cream I have tried and it has SPF 25 so it was my sun screen. I used the BB cream every morning since there was sun and it gave me natural coverage as well. As for a foundation I brought the MUA Undress Me foundation. I just used the foundation later on in the day to give me natural coverage. It is a great foundation and it is only five pounds! 
Unfortunately I can have very dark under eye circles and especially since I only slept for few hours the Bobbi Brown corrector in soft porcelain was very appreciated, as for a concealer the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer is a good medium coverage with natural finish and I also used that around my eyes.
For a finishing powder I took my Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I didn't really use that to much. For a blush I brought my NYX blush in Angel, I have a review of this blush here. It is one of my favourite blush ever. I also brought the e.l.f. Contour and Blush duo. Just to have some option and I like the bronzer in this duo, it works well to do a soft contour.

As for the eyes I have my trusted Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and that is the easiest eye look you could do. I also have my Wet n` Wild eyeshadow trio in Walking on Egshells, the lightest color is amazing as a inner corner highlighter and the middle color is amazing as a all over lid color. This is such.a great trio. For a blending color in my crease I love NYX single eyeshadow in Taupe. It is so smooth and  you can bland any  look with this color.
I did go a bit overboard with eyeliner but I do love the Revlon colorstay Eyeliner in Brown. You don't have to sharpen it and it is so easy to apply it to my top lash line for a bit of definition. I really want to get the same in black. But as for a black eyeliner I have the Max Factor eyeliner in black. Its ok, I just wanted it with me and I did use it one evening when I wanted more defined liner. I also took Avon SuperShock eyeliner in Flash and this color is great for the waterline. If you want brighter eyes this is great. 
I also have my favorite eyebrow pencil and that is Maybelline eyebrow pencil in Dark Blonde. I love this pencil. I also have a mascara and I have been using the Dior Showoff in black.

For lips it's all Revlon haha, you can't go wrong with a Lip Butter and I took Wild Watermelon and Strawberry Shortcake, you can see both of them here in a post I did all about the lip butters. I also have the Revlon Kissable balms stain in Honey and this is a great balm stain. I really like it. It stays on for a long time and does not dry out my lips. I have been going for moisturizing lip products since my lips have been quite dry lately

The brushes I have with me are
Real Technique Buffing Brush, duo fibre powder brush (for blush/bronzer) and the big powder brush.
For my eyes I have the No7 eyeshadow blend & Contour brush, Real Technique Shading Brush, Sigma E45 and the MAC 224 blending brush

I also had to bring my eyelash curlers, Tweezers and the Nivea Lip Butter!
You never know when you need a Tweezers...

So all the makeup was crammed into a bag and out for a travel. I did put the brushes in a brush roll but all the makeup fitted well into my clear makeup bag.

I did use all these products for the time I was there and I was very happy with my selection, I did not find that I needed anything else so I just wanted to share this with you guys

Better late than never right?

Thanks for reading

    When I saw the first photo, I was like "Ouu, that isn't too much!". Then I saw the second photo and went "WTH" and it just went downhill from there, hah. I've been meaning to try out one of Dr.Jart's BB creams, since they're among the best in Asia.


    1. hahahha Vanessa it all made sense! and plus the makeup bag was sooo small but it could fit all of these products! I admit the brushes, I think I just need to get a travel set haha but the lipsproducts make sense, lip balm to use at night, the revlon strawberry shortcake is such a soft pink but if i want a liptsick that does not smudge or go away, i put the kissable balm stain. And you always need somewhat of a fancy lipstick and there is the wild watermelon, a bright wearable red hahaha - trust me, this is nothing compare to the first time I packed :D

      But the Dr Jart BB cream is really nice, I have few products from Dr Jart so I should do a little post about them:D

    2. Yeah, your bag deserves an award for being able to stretch and hold all those products ;)
      I think you could do one big brush for the face + two eyeshadow brushes! (Or maybe I'm lazy and that's how I would pack, hah)
      Oooou, I'd love to read a post about Dr Jart!
