What's in my Travel Makeup Bag?

I'm going on a trip with my family to the States, and I thought it'd be cool to share with you all what I'm choosing to take in my travel makeup bag!

I'm just going to show pictures, and name a few items, just so this post isn't too long and wordy! If you wanted to know what anything is that I didn't mention, just ask in the comments :)

These are the two makeup bags I'm taking:

Sephora + Pantone Universe Tangerine Tango Makeup Bag

Tokidoki Passport Bag

I tried to just use one bag, but between makeup and skincare, I just couldn't do it! I needed two!

And here's what I'm taking!

I wanted to bring some lip products that have SPF in them, which Softlips, L'Oreal's Colour Riche Balm, and Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment all have. Three out of five aint bad!

Lush Ultimate Shine Solid Shampoo - This is brand new and I'm really excited to use it! The solid shampoos are great for travel since they can't spill.

Sephora Universal Atomizer - This is my first atomizer! It is so easy to use, and is great for travel. I love this because you can take it anywhere, eliminating the need of buying smaller sizes or roll ons of your favourite scents. I filled this with Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, which I am loving! 

Simple Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes - These are great! They take all of my makeup off at the end of the night and are really gentle. 

These are the brushes I'm taking! 

NARS Albatross, Orgasm/Laguna Duo, Angelika, Fathom, Lhasa

MUFE HD Invisible Cover Foundation - I love this stuff!

My three new eyeliners that I got in my latest Sephora haul!

Urban Decay's Naked Palette - I'm getting addicted to this palette! It's just amazing :)

Am I forgetting anything? Are you a heavy or light packer? :)


  1. thanks for the sneak peak into your travel bag! I am definitely a heavy packer, its a curse! but -what if- you need something and didn't pack it?! lol.
    I see you packed a little sample of LUSH summer pudding soap too, enjoy :) if you are new to LUSH solid shampoo bars I will warn you NOT to put the bar back into that shampoo tin until it is 100% dry or else it'll be nearly impossible to get back out!

    1. Packing light is just so hard! I feel like I need to bring everything!
      Ya I got the Summer Pudding sample when I bought the shampoo bar :) I've used Trichomania before, but not with the tin, so thanks for the tip! :)

  2. I personally think you did good to get down to this amount!! Have fun on your trip!! What part of the US are you going to see?

    Jayme @ Her Late Night Cravings

    1. I ended up throwing about 10 more lip products into my purse last minute! Aha panick set in that I might run out if I just brought 5.. Clearly I have problems lol
      I'm going to Florida - key west and Miami :) it's actually my first time going to the States! I'm really wanting to hit up Ulta and Sephora there because your prices are soooo much better than Canadian prices!

  3. I hope that you have an amazing trip! Pick me up some polishes, 'kay?
    HAHA JK!! XD I love seeing what people have in their makeup bags. :D

    1. Thanks! Aha :P I'm excited to get some great American deals!
      I like seeing other peoples bags too! Guess I'm kind of nosey :)

  4. I guess I never looked (until now) that you are not from the USA! Have a safe/fun trip - you will have to send updates to tell us where you are going/what you are doing. Love taking a peek at your cosmetic cases! That is such a hard thing for me to deal with when I travel outside of the US or get on a plane - what I can take makeup/cosmetic wise. I would have to take q-tips and another brush for eye shadow. Love the Orgasm/Laguna duo - I can travel miles with that double pan!

    1. Yup, I'm Canadian! This will be my first trip to the States (I've been out of the country, just never to the States)!
      I'm hoping I can get some internet connection so I can update, but incase I can't I have some scheduled posts for the next week!
      I actually don't love Laguna! I much prefer Benefit's Hoola, but I'm taking the duo to save on space. The Benefit boxes are quite bulky!

  5. I just did a really similar post :) & I packed a lot of similar products haha. I brought the dupe for NARS Orgasm, wish I had the real one though! Awesome post :)

    1. Oh nice! I'll check out your post now :)
      Orgasm is alright, but it's not my favourite NARS blush!
