What's in My Makeup Bag? { Travel Essentials }

Today, I'm going on a winter retreat with my sorority! Although I'm sad this is my last weekend of winter break, I'm super excited to see all my sisters after going weeks without them.

Tomorrow morning, we're going to be taking photos as a group, so it's probably best if I bring along some dependable makeup with me, haha. The makeup bag that I always use is this rose gold colored one by Betsey Johnson that I got eons ago, it is so convenient and fits so much stuff into it.  I will only be away for one night, and tried my best to take along only the essentials.  I more than likely will not be using all of these products, but I like to be prepared! (;

For eyes, I thought I would bring along my Lorac Pro Palette, this palette is great for every day wear while giving me a whole lot of options. I'm can be very indecisive, so having options is important to me when I'm staying somewhere overnight. As usual, I brought my eyeliner, brow pencil and gel, holy grail mascara, and a lash curler.

I am bringing with me some essential eye brushes from Sigma, an Expert Face brush by Real Techniques, and my favorite little kabuki brush from ELF (it's only $6!). Since I'll only be gone for one day, storing them with Brush Guard sleeves is an easier alternative to lugging them with me in a brush roll. I really recommend Brush Guard because the sleeves keep your brushes in great shape after cleansing them and is great for keeping them sanitary as well.

Keeping my face makeup light, I am bringing my L'Oreal BB Cream and Benefit Erase Paste.  I'm certain that we will be up late, and I'm going to have to hide those dark under eye circles with a good coverage concealer! My Nars blush in 'Madly' is also coming along with me on this trip just to add some life back into my face after a long night.

Lastly, I'm going to be bringing my deodorant (for obvious reasons, haha), moisturizer, allergy relief eye drops, eye cream, lip balm, and makeup wipes. The Origins GinZing eye cream is going be a life saver and hide my tiredness after tonight's sleepover. Not pictured is face wash and my toothbrush, which would be really gross if I didn't bring it! One of the worst things in life is probably forgetting to pack your toothbrush, lol!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! ♡

P.S. I'm going to try my best to get a DIY post up by tomorrow, before I start school again on Monday!
