While waiting at the airport, I thought I'd let you know my philosophy of packing my travel beauty/skin items.
First, I try to only pack things that I wouldn't be overly upset about if they were lost or stolen or things that are a must have like my Clarisonic. For this trip I brought the following:
Burt's Bees replenishing lip balm
Elf $5 eyeshadow palette from Target
sample size eyeshadow primer, face wash, face primer
mini BE blush
Nars cream blush
BE Volumizing mascara
Double ended Urban Decay eye liner
Estee Lauder double wear powder
deluxe sample of Estee Lauder firming foundation from when I worked there
Dr. Denese concealer duo
Be lipstick in Even More Wearable Pink and matching gloss and liner
Lancome lipstick depotted into a container -Retro Rouge
Clinique Acne Solutions moisturizer
Travel sizes of Pantene shampoo/conditioner (don't recommend- broke me out)
cotton balls/ q-tips
mini travel brushes I have collected from Mark-BE-Cat cosmetics
Marrkesh X leave-in hair treatment
travel bottle filled with my Paul Mitchel hairspray
That is as much as I can remember. I tried to pack only necessities and mini sizes.
Suprizingly I only picked up two items while I was here in California- Nyx Milk pencil (from CVS of all places) and a Burt's Bees with Acai Berry lip balm.
