What's In My Make-Up Travel Bag: May 11, 2011

Hey girls!  So, I am going to the cottage this weekend and I already packed my make-up so I thought I might as well make a blog post out of it!  Keep in mind I am only going for the weekend, so I did not pack that much stuff.  If you were wondering what make-up bag I bring, I use the waffle weave bag from Elle and Blair's online store! I got it before the new site and it is turquoise with the polka dot ribbon with black block font (the same font as Elle's) and it says taylor - with all lower case letters.  Anyway, it is my favourite make-up bag and I love so what's inside? 

The first few things you'll find in there is my primer which is the Bare Minerals Prime Time Oil-Control Primer, which I adore! My MAC 188 duo-fibre brush to apply my favourite foundation at the moment.  That foundation would be the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Skin Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15.

 The next item I dug up is my bareMinerals i.d. Full Flawless Face Brush to buss in my setting powder MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark (summer shade).  Then I have my Cover Fx Total Coverage Foundation SPF 30 which I use as a concealer and I apply that with my fingers of my bareMinerals i.d Light Stroke brush.

Then I have my favourite blush, which was limited edition.  It is from the Venomous Villains Collection from the Cruella De Vil line called "Her Own Devices".  It is a beauty powder which explains the compact and mirror!  On top of that is my pink Clinique blush brush!

Then, I have my much loved Naked Palette. Along side it is my mini Urban Decay Primer Potion which I have fallen in love with and the Urban Decay Shadow brush.  I also have my MAC 217, 219 and 239 brushes.

You can never skip out on the mascara, for this trip I chose to bring my Maybelline One by One mascara along with my Shu Uemera eye lash curler, which I love!

I LOVE eyeliner, and my favourite is the MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, and to apply that I use a thin brush, mine is the MAC 210 brush!

Lip products are tricky to pack, so I just packed a MAC lipstick in "Angel", my EOS lip balm, my NARS double-sided lip gloss in "Dolce Vita" and "Sweet Dreams" and lastly my Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in "Tulip".
 As for kind of non-make up products I bring my Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer, Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avacado and my 100 pack MAC make up wipes!

There is one more product I did not include because I wanted to dedicate a blog post just for it, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for it! So, that is what I pack in my Make Up Travel Bag, I hope you enjoyed and found this helpful!

xoxo, Taylor


  1. What was the price for the chanel foundation? I have heard good things about it, but imagine it may be a bit too expensive for me?

  2. It depends - I got mine for $44 CDN roughly (I bought it in Paris)! Just got to a Chanel counter and ask for a sample, I'm sure that will set it in stone for you. The way it feels on your skin is beyond amazing! :)

  3. This is such a fun post, i just ordered a makeup bag from Blair and Elle's website, so excited to get it ^^

    Love Christine ♥

  4. i love minee, and i'm sure you'll love yours too!
