We’ve all done it. We spend two hours packing up for a trip only to realize that not only only have we packed every outfit in our wardrobe (what happens if it snows? or if it rains? or if the temperature hits 100? Gotta be prepared!) But we have also packed basically every beauty item that we own.
Packing light is both a challenge and a necessity. I put together a list of my must have beauty items while traveling. These are the things that I know I use and need, and that if I have them, I can put together any and every makeup look I would possibly need.
- Urban Decay NAKED palette- This is my go to palette, any look I could ever want to make I can do with this.
- Eyeliner- Because I’m an eyeliner girl, I use a pencil liner and a liquid liner everyday.
- Eyeshadow primer
- Eyebrow Filler Kit
- Bronzer/Blush Duo- Packing duos like this Too Faced one helps to save space in your makeup bag.
- Setting Powder
- Lipstick/Lipgloss- One color that you use everyday and that goes with everything
For brushes, it’s important to keep it only to the necessities.
- Shadow Brush
- Crease Brush
- Blending Brush
- Pencil Brush
- Fluffy Powder Brush
- Blush Brush
- Eyelash Curler
Okay, I know this seems like a lot. But going away for an extended amount of time means you have to be prepared. There’s enough products here that you could easily make any full face look with no problems at all.
