i don't want to look anything less than my best while visiting friends & family, so when packing my entire collection of makeup & beauty products just isn't an option i turn to my go-to travel makeup & beauty products to get me through the trip.

in my makeup bag...
1. covergirl outlast stay fabulous 3-in-1 foundation (+ cosmetic sponges for applying)
2. covergirl cgsmoothers bb cream
3. urban decay naked basics palette (+ ecotools angled liner brush for applying "faint" to brows)
4. maybelline eye studio gel liner (+ sonia kashuk angled liner brush for applying)
5. maybelline great lash big mascara
6. bobbi brown blush in sandstone (+ estee lauder small blush brush)
7. co bigelow lemon lip balm
8. rimmel lasting finish lipstick (pink blush 006)

in my beauty bag…
1. clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion
2. secret clinical strength deodorant
3. bath & body works travel size body lotion ("sun")
4. victoria's secret mini bombshell body mist
5. shea moisture reconstructive finishing elixir
6. conair wide tooth comb
7. mini spray bottle of baby oil (for removing makeup)
8. & finally, my toothbrush!

& that's it, a list of everything i take with me (from makeup to beauty products) when going on a trip. you may have noticed i left out shampoo + conditioner, body wash, & toothpaste because more often than not i am visiting family or friends that have these items already, but if not i bring mini versions of whatever products i'm currently using or just fill up a few travel sized bottles & i'm good to go!

technically this post should have been up by wednesday night (i promised to blog every other day this month) but i had a disagreement with the wi-fi that didn't get resolved until now, so here it is now two days too late.
