travel tips // the makeup bag

when it comes to traveling, i find it’s always best to pack simply, whether it be your wardrobe, jewelry, makeup, etc.  it’s easy to say that “new city, new me” mantra and throw in those items that we own but never wear, but let’s face it, when we’re not at home we try to make ourselves feel as comfortable as possible.

my advice is to stick to what you know and love, and what works for you no matter the location or climate.  of course it’s fun to toss in the bits that we don’t use on a daily basis, but we really aren’t any more likely to wear something out of town than we are in our own city (no matter how much we try to convince ourselves of this).

in terms of cosmetics, a great tip is to bring a makeup item in each category, so you have options but are still pared back.  so here is my staples makeup bag – and staples don’t necessarily mean boring!IMG_4337.jpgface //
