What's in my travel makeup bag?

My Wet n Wild Red Velvet lipstick wasn't the only thing I took to New York! Thought it'd be fun to share the things I took with me on my trip. I could have done with just a quarter of the things I took, but 10 days is a long time to be away from the comforts of your makeup! :P I took a minimal range of colors, which are basically what I wear on a daily basis. I guess these would also fall under my "daily essentials"!

What are your MUST HAVES when you travel? 


  1. Hi Jess, this is such a large collection of goodies! I like so many of the things found here. The NARS Danmari palette really seems like a good choice for travel.
