Makeup Essentials (The Travel Version)

If I haven't talked about it enough yet, I am going on vacation on Thursday (I'm completely excited, but at the same time I'm scared to leave my baby for the first time). I always have my travel essentials ready to go!

Lately, I've been getting some emails asking me what makeup I love and what I use. I thought I would do a quick post on some of my favorite products I HAVE to have when I travel.

So........here ya go:

1--NARS EYESHADOW (Bohemian Gold is my fave). They have MAJOR staying power. When it's humid, it stays put...which is a MUST!
2--KATE SOMERVILLE TAN TOWELETTES. I am white as a ghost most of the year, but when I go on vacay, I like to put a little tanner on before (because I don't tan in the sun) I go. These don't streak, and are super easy to apply!
3--BOBBI BROWN BRONZER (Medium is my shade). I have used this bronzer for-EVER! I love it, it never looks orange, and just gives a nice glow.
4--BOBBI BROWN LIP BALM SPF 15. I think I have four jars of this stuff laying around my house. I never run out! I love love love it! It's smooth, but not sticky and has SPF!


5--LAURA MERCIER TINTED MOISTURIZER. The BEST tinted moisturizer in my opinion. It stays put, doesn't slide, and gives just the right amount of coverage (and  has SPF!).
6--KATE SOMERVILLE EXFOLIKATE. Ok, if you have dry skin, bumpy skin, texture issues, etc..THIS is for you. I can't explain it, but it does amazing things for my skin in the winter. I always travel with it!
7--MAYBELLINE THE FALSIES MASCARA (Waterproof). Ok, I won't go on and on about this, because I've probably said I love this stuff a million times. You get it (but if you haven't tried it yet..DO!)

So, there you have it! What are YOUR favorite Travel Makeup Essentials? Any that I should go get before I leave? Let me know!


Also, two of my favorite bloggy people (Courtney & Kylee) nominated me for a Liebster Award!! I am so thrilled, because it couldn't have come from two more awesome girls (GO CHECK OUT THEIR FANTASTIC BLOGS)! 

This award is given to a blogger with less than 200 followers and is a fantastic way to promote and encourage new friendships within the blogging community.  


I promise I haven't forgotten about it (just a little crazy right now)! I will nominate some people when I get back!

  11. I LOVE Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer & The Falsies! I can't believe I've never actually purchased a NARS eyeshadow though! Orgasm blush, yes (the name drew me in, who woulda thought? HA), but not the shadow. On my next trip to Sephora, that's on my list! Great post! xox
