We are just 3 days from the move so everything is basically packed away. I realized a few days ago that I can’t just go makeup free for all the time that we are visiting Illinois. So I put together my makeup bag that I am going to be using the time we are there and until we get to our new location. I packed just the bare minimum with a few makeup brushes. Lets see what I packed!
I packed my Covergirl ready set gorgeous foundation to bring with me. I love the coverage and the feel of this foundation. It is super lightweight but is a medium to full coverage and it sits super well on my skin.
Concealer: I packed my Maybelline fit me concealer. I love this product. It really brightens under the eyes and is a super creamy consistency!
Powder: I only own the KVD Shade light palette which was to big to pack and the E.L.F High definition powder which is huge. So I am going to purchase the Maybelline fit me powder to set everything once we arrive in Illinois.
Mascara, Eyeliner, Eyebrows: I just threw in my favorites for the eyes. They are the Too faced better than sex mascara and my L’Oreal infallible eye liner. I found the L’Oreal silk shine liner in turquoise in the clearance aisle at Walmart and I had to get it! So I threw that in there for a pop of color on my trip, and if I want wings I threw in my Physicians formula one! For eyebrows I just included my Anastasia Beverly hills brow definer in the shade Carmel. I love this product a lot more that the brow wiz. I find it easier to use and it glides on a lot better.
Eyeshadow: I only have pretty large palettes and had already packed my little ones so I decided that I am just going to use my bronzer as an eyeshadow. I want to keep with simple things anyways!
Bronzer: I packed my Too Faced chocolate Soleil bronzer. I got this as a 100 point perk at Sephora and it has lasted me quite awhile. When I run out I will deff purchase a full size.
Highlight: For highlight I just packed my Becca Champagne pop highlight. Love this product and its small and compact.
Miscellaneous: Scotch Tape. I brought this along because I would have some ratchet looking wings if I didn’t, so this was basically a necessity as I see it 🙂
Since I am sticking to such simple makeup I didn’t feel like I needed pack any lipsticks so I didn’t.
Brushes that I am bringing along:
I own a lot of brushes so I had to narrow it down. I obviously love morphe and elf and that is what I packed.
Eye Brushes: Morphe M441 and Morphe E22: These are both amazing blending brushes they blend everything out perfectly well and I would be lost without them.
I brought one of my E.L.F brushes. It is known as the “C” brush. This brush is amazing for packing color on the lid.
Face Brushes: This is where I had problems picking the ones I was bringing. I just kept it simple I brought my E1, E4, M439, M438 and E.L.F. Contouring brush. The M439 is amazing for buffing foundation in as well as applying the concealer. I use the E1 to powder everything and then I use the E4 for blush and bronzer. Contour brush for contouring of course and the M438 to apply highlight!
And there we have it. My makeup case for the next week and a half or so. I hope you guy’s liked reading. I will have one more post going up either tomorrow or Tuesday for sure and then I will try and post when I can once I am on the road and visiting family.
