Makeup Wars: My Vacation Makeup Bag.

Many of us bloggers who battle it out in Makeup Wars are either on vacation or are heading out on vacation soon. We are a traveling bunch! I am, in fact, headed to Florida tomorrow. I cannot wait for 6 days at the beach!

I am usually a serious over-packer when it comes to makeup, but this time I am keeping it light; very low maintenance. I plan to do not much more than relax at the beach and go out to dinner, so I figured I could do a simple makeup look that will go with everything. I also wanted to fit everything into this cute M∙A∙C Archie's Girls Just a Flirt Makeup Bag. The bag is super durable, long enough to fit a full sized brush, yet it takes up very little space in my already jam packed suitcase. I do "carry on" so the liquids will be in a quart sized bag inside my handbag. Luckily, all of my skin care and hair care is already in Florida at my home away from home or carrying on would not be possible. If I had to bring those with me, packing would be much different.

I'm pretty proud of myself for how much I have streamlined everything and am soley bringing the basics.

Hopefully these basics will get me through. If not, I'll have an excuse to head to the Galleria where there is a Sephora, Neiman Marcus and Macy's.

I can't wait to see what my blogger friends take on vacation with them.

I love all of your choices! This shape bag would be so easy to fit in a suitcase.
I am very impressed with your makeup packing abilities. I wish I could really find some products that I loved enough to only bring with me on a trip. I guess I am not that confident in my makeup choices.
Honestly, your packing is super smart. I wish I could pack like you am inspired to for my cruise in two weeks. I am going to take inventory of the things I use most and bring them. I am thinking of it as a challenge.
Love the MUFE foundation. I almost bought that Archie's Girls bag and then decided not to at the last minute!
You pack so well. I try to bring the right stuff and only a few things, but I usually bring the wrong things. I tend to pack for the occasion and not something that would go with everything like you suggested. That is really a smart idea and I will keep that in mind for the next time.
I like the shape of the bag and can't believe you fit all that in there. Nice job. What a fun series of posts.
How in the world do you pack so little?
