Makeup I Packed For Vacation

So the boy and I (and our dogs) are going on a little vacation. Nothing big, I'll tell you a little more about it tomorrow because I'm running out of time!  I still have to pack my other things!

I just wanted to show you guys what I'm taking with me.  Like always, I'm taking way more makeup than I need.  We're only going to be gone a little less than a week and half, but I feel like I'm bringing a lot.  Hey, I like options when it comes to makeup.  Clothes on the other hand- meh, I'll wear whatever.  I'm probably just bring a few pairs of jeans, my Converse, and some shirts.  We'll have access to a washing machine so I don't need to pack my whole closet.  My boyfriend on the other hand probably will pack his whole closet.  I swear he changes clothes like 3 or 4 times a day.  While I sometimes wear the same jeans 2 days in a row. Shhh...

So here is what I'm bringing:

Sorry about my ugly makeup brushes- they need a bath.

Yikes! Looking at this picture made me realize I almost forgot my mascara.  Now THAT would have been a disaster.  And I don't think my boyfriend would have let us turn the car around to get it.  Oh, and I don't have any lip products here because they are all in my purse already.

So does it all fit in my makeup bag?

Yup!  Just barely!  I had to take a few things out, as much it pained me to do, but it fits!  It's hard to believe that not so long ago (last year) this makeup bag held all the makeup I own in the world.  Now it holds about a 10th of it.

And here are the nail polishes I'm bringing:

I had to severely limit myself to only bring this many.  I'm not going to lie, it was hard. :-P  I know I won't use all of these, but I'm used to having hundreds of nail polishes to choose from, so once again I need options!

So, what about you guys?  When you go on vacation do you tend to over-pack or under-pack?  And what makeup do you bring?

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!


  1. I always tend to over-pack. Mainly because I never know what I'm going to do or what the weather is going to be like. I have a bag about the size of yours that I pack make-up in, and a much larger bag for bath/hair products.

  2. Hahaha you are too funny. I think this a perfectly normal amount of makeup to bring ;-) Have a safe trip! <3

  3. For vacation, I bring foundation, foundation primer, my skin care, a clear lip gloss and a black eyeliner. I don't like to risk losing any of my cool stuff.

  4. Seeing this post, I'm dying to go on vacation myself...*sigh* it's been so long. anyways, it is hard to limit ourselves, but your choices were wise ;)

  5. i'm going on 2 trips this summer and i'm planning on not bringing any polish - because i'll probably be buying so much while i'm gone! hahaha

  6. when I'm travelling I tend to bring only what I'll use, usually multi purpose products and all liquid cosmetics into tiny 5ml pots. It's a must for me to save space, so I can bring over stuff that I know I will end up buying...

  7. I totally agree with you, options are good. I'd rather have too much makeup when travelling than not enough! Also, you never know what you're going to feel like wearing that day!

  8. lol better more than less :D i ALWAYS overpack
    wonderful options for yourself though


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
