I bring all the necessities I need for my face, & then I try to match my colors with the outfits that I’m wearing for that weekend.. kind of useless because I end up bring all my makeup and my clothes, lol. So much suitcases for 2 days!!

Select Moisturecover, my compact powder, any one of the MAC blushes i own preferably Peachtwist, my eyebrow pencil and Ricepaper e/s and last but not least, my travel sized brushes in 129SE, 266E and 239E. Oh almost forgotten, lipglass in Oyster Pink.

Thankfully, my makeup bag is able to hold all these items πŸ˜‰

Whatever’s already in my everyday makeup bag. Oyin Honey stick, a moisturizer, NARS multiple is South Beach, Milani lip pencil in Hot Chocolate, and whatever lipgstck and/or gloss I’d wore during the week

Diorskin pressed powder & concealer, MAC studio finish concealer (if I have a blemish), MAC Browshader, 1 MAC 4 pan pro pallette w/ whatever shadows I think I’ll use (Shroom, Nylon, Cork are good basic standbys), Maybelline Great Lash mascara, Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler, lip gloss of some sort or just balm.

My boyfriend lives 2 and a half hours away, and I bring with me:

Clinique TM
(From MAC)concealer, Tenderling blush, Groundwork paint pot, Naked Lunch e/s, Duck powerpoint pencil, Black plush lash & a lip balm.

Aside from face wash and moisturizer…

Concealer, charcoal eyeliner, mascara, eye lash curler, palette of neutral shadows, tarte cheek stain, and highlighter. For brushes I only bring this really nifty brush I got with a Bare Mineral’s smokey eye kit (not the new v smokey eye one, this was one of the first ones they had out last spring) because it’s got a great larger, softer end for full color and subtle shading and then a shorter small end with a bit more of a firm feel for soft liner or more controlled applications AND my brow/lash comb/brush. I have arachnolashaphobia.

I should point out that I bring no lip products in my make up bag… because my purse is FULL of them!

moisturizer, mineral foundation, a neutral eye shadow, mascara and my purse, which contains heaps of lipsticks and glosses πŸ™‚ oh, and perfume!

I bring one of everything! Well thatΒ΄s not true, as I always have a lot of glosses and lipsticks with me, I like to have more than one possibility, according to my mood.
I like to carry BB palettes on trips.
My makeup bag tends not to be the smallest and lightest item in my bag.

Cleanser (Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Enriched, best stuff on the planet)
Moisturizer (Olay Complete)
Lipglass (Nymphette or Sock Hop)
Eyelash Curler (Shu, of course)
Maybelline Full ‘N Soft
TiGi Big Fat Fun pencils (don’t get me started on how much I love these, I have 16)
Lorac take a brow
Jane Blush in Blushing Baby Doll

Hey Cristine,

MMMM…First of all,all according to outfit i take.Lippencil,lipstick,glass,eyeshadow’s,loosepowder,eyeliner,mascara,makeup remover,sunblock and yes Purfumes.

Thats it!!Not that much .No?


Tinted moisturizer with SPF
Pressed powder
Stila CC (doubles as a lipstick and blush)
Eye shadow palette
Eye Liner
Lip balm

So that would be seven items – which isn’t too bad. Some years ago, I used to take around fifteen to twenty items!!

Ok this is makeup wise, not including washing up, fake tan, perfumes etc..
1 foundation that’s my fav at the time,
1 face primer,
1 loose powder,
1 pressed powder,
1 concealer palette,
1 face highlighter,
1 eyebrow pencil/filler,
1 eyebrow groomer gel,
1 small blush palette
1 small bronzer/contour palette,
1 store bought eyeshadow palette,
3 home made eyeshadow palettes,
1 eye primer,
2 cream eye bases,
4 eye pencils (usually black, white, brown & one random one),
4 liquid liners (usually black, green, brown and one random),
3 mascaras (black, brown, one crazy colour like gold/pink),
1 lip scrub,
1 lip balm,
1 lip plumper,
1 lip primer,
2 lip bases,
1 home made lip palette of light glosses & lipsticks,
1 home made lip palette of darker glosses & lipsticks,
4 lip pencils (2 light, 2 dark),
1 lip sealant,
1 cheap clear lipgloss.

Ok bear in mind this is without my hair stuff, ton of clothes, body stuff, etc :). Plus this is just my bear essentials LOL.

Well this stuff goes into a couple of vanity cases, however including the rest of my stuff, the result is two enormous bags. I’m just lucky I get my boyfriend to carry it all around LOL!

I normally bring:
– 1 powder foundation or pressed powder
– 1 lipgloss/lipstick
– 1 lip balm
– 1 blush

guess that’s it =) I’m fairly low maintenance =)

I try not to bring too much because I never use every item that I take with me. It needs to fit in just one average sized medium make up bag! So here is my list…
1. Body Shop Vitamin E moisture cream
2. Studio Fix Concealer (NW25)
3. MSF Natural in Medium
4. Powerpoint pencil in Duck
5. A Quad (Right now I would choose Charcoal brown, Wedge, Lime and Sumptous Olive)
5. Origins Lipgloss in Raspberry Truffle (Seriously I am loving their lipglosses right now)
6. NARS blush in Mata Hari

I would also take some eyelash curlers and a couple of brushes (129 SE, 239, 222)

I make it a point to pack lightly when going on trips, so I just bring moisturizer + liquid foundation to mix my own tinted moisturizer, and some lipgloss. If I know there are going to be photos, I take along a gold-tinted bronzer as an overall face color.

Um, considering I still use a Caboodle (helps me limit the amount of makeup I have, LOL!), I just close it up and go! So I bring everything!

I used to par it down but then discovered I’d always forget an essential. So now, I just bring it all. If I had a bigger collection that made it hard to take, I’d probably invest in a few multi-use palattes and bring that plus primer, foundation and mascara.

I would deffinetly bring my you rebel tinted moisturizer from Benefit.
I still use a caboodle train case too. lol. So I usually try to bring the whole thing but sometimes its kind of big, so I bring this little palette I have from ULTA.

I take foundation, the brush that goes with it, concealer, the brush that goes with that, Bamboom paint, mascara, and whichever two lipglosses I find first, and blot powder.

I think I take more skincare with me than makeup! Haha, unless it’s for a special occasion, I don’t take much with me. I try to be as compact as possible. I usually take a powder foundation, one blush and a few lippies and one eyeshadow palette (usually WnW Sand Castle or Paradise Cove or a Mark. palette [the largest one, mega?] filled with neutrals).

I’m in college, and either go to see my boyfriend or home almost every week. I’ve got this down pact.

Bronzing Powder
2 Blushes
Blitz and Glitz Fluidline
Bare Study paint pot
2 Palettes (4-6 eyeshadows each)
6 eyeshadows (colors based on what I’ve packed to wear)

I get all of this, with the exception of the lip stuff, into a medium Vera Bradley cosmetic bag. The lip stuff goes into a small Vera Bradley cosmetic bag and I keep it in my purse for touch ups.
