What's in My Travel Bag

For a beauty blogger, narrowing down what I bring on vacation to just the essentials is a chore. After all, I have over ten deep drawers full of polish, blushes, foundations, and other bath and body products.

When I went to London, the struggle was real. I was going to be spending many days in another country and while I was certain that if I was missing anything, one of their drug stores would have me covered, I didn't want to have to go hunting down any stores or figuring out which brands were comparable. Plus, the exchange rate from USD to GBP is not favorable, so I wanted to avoid spending money unnecessarily. (AKA: have more money to bring back British cosmetics!)

So here is everything I packed below:

The Hawaii lotion, Pantene root boster bottle, dry shampoo, and face wipes were packed in a gallon bag in my suitcase on their own. However, everything else fit into my Victoria's Secret double-sided cosmetics case.

So what exactly did I bring?

Let's break it down!


This is pretty much my core collection of cosmetics. I love my Make Up Forever HD foundation with my Beauty Blender sponge and have been using Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion since I was 13. I don't think I'll ever give it up.

My blush and bronzer are from Physician's Formula, while my eyeshadow is Wet n Wild. Of course, I can't forget my Maybelline Great Lash either.

Some odds and ends include my Philosophy Peppermint Bark lip gloss, Clean and Clear face wash, and my Blistex Medicated Lip Balm, which is the absolute best if you have dry, chapped, or sunburnt lips. Seriously. Mine have been gone in 24 hours with this stuff!

Also, my Simple Radiance makeup remover and face wash wipes are the find of the last year, which I discovered after visiting Caravan Stylist Studio prior to New York Comic Con. They take off ALL of my makeup, but don't dry out my skin in the slightest. I couldn't survive without these!

Lastly, the ELF Mist and Set Spray totally keeps my makeup fresh and in tact all day long, rain or shine, heat or cold. Can't leave home without it!


My five go-to lipsticks: L'Oreal Colour Riche in Zoe's Red (for Zoe Saldana) and Blake's Red (for Blake Lively), MAC Hot Tahiti (my all-time favorite!), Zoya Mackenzie, and Maybelline Whisper Who Wore it Red-er.


I took some common odds and ends in the form of a nail file, buffer, glue, and powder. Also, the Cutex Remover Pads (made of felt) worked fast and diligently, even on my holographic glitter polish with the Essie Watercolor Silks on top.

I also packed the Zoya Naked Manicure System, the special manicure swabs, and a mini bottle of Out the Door Top Coat. It's not my favorite top coat, but it's effective and the only one I could find in a mini size that I approved of.

So there you have it! Everything that was in my makeup case on vacation, which is double-sided. Really, it was the best purchase I've made in a long while from the Victoria's Secret Outlet. HIGHLY recommended!
