Basic Travel Cosmetics

This is one of those posts I've thought about writing every time I go on a trip to Seattle or Portland. The trips are typically just over nighters so I don't bring a lot. I was so close to writing one for PAX weekend then decided against it. Then my friend Eve wrote a post about what she brought to Seattle that weekend and encouraged me to write one of my own. So here we go.

If some of these items look familiar it's because they're the same items I've been using all summer (as seen here). Some are new items I've splurged on since then.



Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation Stick
Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls
Maybelline Fit Me! Pressed Powder
Covergirl + Olay Tone Rehab CC Cream
Maybelline Master Smoky Eye Liner
L'Oreals Vouminous Miss Manga


Maybelline Color Tatoo 24 Hour Cream Eyeshadow
E.L.F. Snow White Eyeshadow set

Those are the items I wore over the weekend. And these are all the products I brought with me that weekend.


Pretty silly, I know, but I was feeling really unsure about myself. There really was no need to worry about it. I ended up wearing the products that I feel the best in, which is my every day stuff. One night I even brought out the red lip stain. I felt bold. Haha! This weekend was a confirmation for me to stick with what I know works and what I feel best in.

Me wearing this make up today. Also goofing off at work with one of the new chocobo plushies that arrived from Japan. It's so cute!

The Manga mascara is pretty great (a wee bit on the clumpy side) but really gives my lashes the look I desire~ full and long. The Tattoo eyeshadow I've been using as a base for all of my eyeshadows. It really does stay for the long haul which is great. There has been a few times I've forgotten to wash my face at night and Aaron will ask me in the morning if I had already done my makeup because my eyes look great. Quite an endorsement, hehe!

What do you bring on trips? Do you have travel sized makeup instead of the full sized ones? <3

yeah glad you did it! you should definitely do this more often. it's fun to look back and compare how much we've changed in our choices of beauty. or in my case, very little but at least i realized what my staple items. LOL
