What’s in my Philly Makeup Bag


I recently took a weekend trip to Philly and since we were only there for three days, I did not want to lug all my makeup there but I wanted to make sure that I had the essentials. Here is a peak into what I brought with me to Philly along with some tips that I have for packing light!

  • Primer: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, I got a travel size item of this a wide back and I love this primer so I brought it along with me (especially since most of my other primers are huge).
  • Setting Spray: I brought along my travel size Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray (I actually own a lot of travel size items, as I find that travel size items are a great affordable way to try out new products.) This is my favorite setting spray which is why I love having a travel size of this item.
  • Blush/Bronzer: Duos are great for traveling, you get two different products in one compact! I brought along my NARS duo in Laguna and Orgasm. Instead of bringing eye shadow along, I used laguna on my eyelids to bring a bit of color to  my eyes.
  • Powder: ELF Clarifying Pressed Powder is the setting powder that I brought along since it is super light and it prevents my face from becoming too oily.
  • Concealer: I actually brought concealer in a lighter shade and a darker shade so I could use them for contour as well. This saves me less items to bring along since I know I would need concealer anyways. The lighter concealer I brought along is the Maybelline Fit Me in light which is a great under-eye concealer. For the “contour” shade I brought along LA Girl Pro Concealer in cool tan, another super affordable great concealer.
  • Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream: This was in my January Favorites and the reason is because it is super light weight while evening out my skin tone. It is a great BB cream for the day since it provides enough coverage without making me look cake-y.
  • Highlighter: I brought along my travel size Becca highlighter in Opal which is one of my favorite highlighters. It is such a flattering color for both the day time and night time.
  • Jesse’s Girl Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, Black: Eyeliner is one of my staple items and I have been loving this liquid eyeliner which some have said is a dupe of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper!
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Brow Define: Another must have item for me is a brow pencil and I brought along both my Maybelline and Anastasia Brow Wiz because they are such small items and I need both to help my brow situation.
  • Mascara: Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara is the mascara that I have been using for the last couple of months and I really like how it lengths and volumizes my lashes.
