Traveling to a far away place but you have no idea what to take?


Here are the things I will be taking on my trip and I'll give you some tips along the way. I've also included skincare because traveling can do such a number on the skin and sometimes we forget to pack these essentials on the go.

  6. NYX Natural Palette- The perfect palette to take me from a soft day look to a smokey evening look.
  7. Balanced Guru Body Balm- I'm obsessed! Its makes my dry, cracked winter hands good as new. Can't leave home without it!
  8. H20+ Face OASIS- A hydrating treatment. Just in case I don't have time for a hydrating face mask.



  1. Makeup Brushes- The smaller the better!
    • The Real techniques Travel kits are the perfect size for travel.
    • I'm also taking a small flat brush from the Forever 21 Love & Beauty line.
    • Sponge tip applicators also come in handy.
  2. Primers:
    • Benefit The PoreFessional to give my makeup the perfect smooth base.
    • For eyes, Urban Decay Primer Potion to make my Eyeshadow last all day.
  3. 2 in 1 Waterproof Liquid and pencil- I got this one on But any 2 in 1 liner would be convenient for travel and make your eyes really pop.
  4. Revlon Colorstay Brow Enhancer- Gives my brows the natural finish and long lasting hold I need. *Remember 2 in 1 products make for easy application when on the go.
  5. NYX Wonder Pencil- A 3in1 product, a concealer, eyeliner and highlighter. For brightness where i need it!

  7. Revlon Colorbust Balm Stains- A lip balm and stain, whats not to love! Moisturizing and long lasting color. [*For cheaper alternatives, check out the Wet 'N Wild and NYC balm stains at your local drugstore]
  8. Travel size Benefits They're Real mascara- A semi waterproof formula that gives me the look of a water proof mascara but not hard to remove.




  1. Kitchen storage bags or ziplock bags are great to separate products.They also prevent messy leakage of liquids or powders from getting everywhere.
  2. If you don't have any sample size, travel size or small products; transfer some of the product into a small travel container. [Sets can be found in retail stores travel section]
  3. Don't just limit yourself to makeup bags and carrying cases, you can also use your dust bag and pillowcases to pack your stuff.
  4. Lay out all the products you think you you might need first, then see if you have any dual use or multi-use products for two or more purposes, to limit over packing.
  5. Mini makeup palettes that come with eyeshadows, blush, bronzer and lip products are great way to save space!

Hope this was helpful ! Take care and have a safe trip! XOXO
