Travel Makeup.

I'm currently visiting home for two weeks before school starts back up again, and I decided to travel light for once, bringing only a carry-on with me on the plane, and as a result, I also downsized the amount of makeup I would normally take with me. I managed to fit all of my non-liquid makeup products in this little white, patent leather-like Shiseido bag.

For size comparison purposes, below is the makeup bag next to a small Z-palette.

Face products:
L to R:
Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Ivory (under-eyes)
Revlon PhotoReady Concealer in Light/Medium (blemishes/redness)
MUFE F&B Foundation in #20 (for nighttime)
Maybelline BB Cream in Light/Medium (for daytime)
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Sand

Cheek products:
L to R:
Rimmel Blush in Santa Rose
MAC Blush in Well Dressed
Rimmel Bronzer in 25 Sun Glow
MAC Blushcreme in Ladyblush
MAC Lustre Drops in Sun Rush

Eye products:
L to R:
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara
MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
MAC Eyeshadow Pans (Phloof!, Brule, Quarry, Wedge, Antiqued)
Milani Shadow Eyez in Brown Deluxe
Milani Shadow Eyez in Champagne Toast
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe
MAC Eyeshadow in Nylon (best inner corner highlight. ever.)

Lip products:
L to R:
Clarins Natural Light Lip Perfector in 02
Jack Black Lip Balm
Smashbox Lipstick in Fuchsia Flash
Dior Addict Lip Balm in Crystal Coral
Too Faced Lipstick in Naked Dolly

"Forgotten products": (as in, I forgot to include them in their respective categories!)
L to R:
Anastasia Brow Pen in Universal Dark
NYX Eyebrow Marker in Deep (I alternate between the two brow pens in case one runs low on color while I'm using it)
NYX Blush in Taupe (for contour)
Burberry Eyeshadow in Midnight Brown
BareMinerals Well-Rested
Urban Decay Grindhouse Sharpener

And in true Tiffany fashion, even after gathering together the "forgotten products" shown in the last photo, I realized that I still forgot a couple of products: TFSI and my Laura Mercier Oil-Free Foundation Primer decanted into a small pot.

I seriously thought I did so well with downsizing and travelling "light" in terms of beauty products, but after taking these pictures and writing this post, I've realized that I probably still packed too much. Oh well. You gotta start somewhere, right? ;)


  1. I think you packed a healthy amount of makeup. :P I didn't expect it could all fit into that one bag! I think everything you bought along with you covered all bases so it seems like you were ready for all scenarios! Those Milani Shadow Eyez must be good if they made the cut :) xx

  2. I loved your post ! Can you please do a review on the MAC Lustre Drops in Sun Rush ?

    Oh boy, I'm also traveling for a bit more than two weeks, and I'm too ashamed to share what I actually took with me on the blog! Oh well, I pretend I'm testing stuff out to see how it copes with really warm and humid weather :p Enjoy your stay home!

  4. A great entry! I think you've chosen some wonderful products (you have given me many ideas!) and your makeup bag is adorable.
    I have also created an entry in my blog about the makeup that I get when I travel :)

  5. great pics, have fun on your trip back home! =)

  6. Wow, that bag is tiny, though! If you can fit it all in there, why downsize further?

  7. For two weeks?!  This is light!  Well done ;)

  8. Cute forgotten products! I love how you mix up high-end and drugstore products. Like you, I usually travel with neutrals. Have a great trip. 

  9. Great stuff Tiffany! I really like that Maybelline concealer & the Rimmel Santa Rose blush :)

  10. Love those milani shadow eyez!

  11. You've done way better than me...I'm pretty high maintenance when it comes to cosmetics. Not only that, I've tried packing light and heavy, I still end up shopping for makeup while travelling - lol!

  12. You actually did really well for a two-week stay. I would have packed a crapload more! :P 

    And I recently got a lot of the items you mentioned (Maybelline Dream Matte, Maybelline DreamLumi concealer, Maybelline BB cream [seeing a pattern here?], Rimmel Sun Glow bronzer, and the Milani Shadow Eyez in the same colors you have). I did   a massive drugstore haul. I noticed I was starting to become a bit of a beauty-snob and took it upon myself to try and remedy the situation ASAP :P I'm really excited to try them now that I know you like them so much! Fingers crossed!

  13. whatever, I think you did great with the amount of items you packed! I think I packed way more for a trip in the spring... and I packed like 75% of my collection when I came out here for work for 5 weeks (which has now turned into 3 months and maybe more lol)

  14. I also always end up with a bunch of new stuff when I travel...something about travelling makes me want to spend more money...
