What's in My Las Vegas Makeup Bag - Carry On Friendly

I'm the type of person that packs pretty lightly on trips and whenever possible, I limit myself to only carry on luggage. In fact, for my recent trip to Las Vegas, I honestly think that my duffle bag (which counted as the carry on) was smaller than my tote bag (my personal item).

So with all the things I wanted to pack, I definitely didn't want my makeup items to take up a bunch of space when I had other essentials that I wanted to take with me. Plus, since I was doing the whole carry on only route, I was also limited to the 3 oz. liquids in a quart sized zip closing bag. I dislike waiting for my luggage at the carousel, but I'm not so sure my logic is sound considering the limitations I encounter with only bringing carry on luggage.

In the photograph above, are all the products I took with me for my makeup routine, while in Vegas.

e.l.f. Studio Blush Palette

I've been really loving blush palettes lately. I just think they're so convenient. I love being able to travel with multiple blushes at once without having singles just floating around in my makeup bag. Granted, I don't own an excessive number of blush palettes, since I did have to be realistic about how much blush I actually need (which in truth, I have more than I should already).

Nail of the Day

Really, I should just be calling this Nail of the Week, considering I usually wear my polish for a week before changing it out.

So...more flowers!

EcoTools: Correcting Concealer Brush

To be honest, I don't own any decent concealing brushes at all, I have a few flat ones, but for the purpose of blending, they were not the right brush for the job. I had also resorted to using my fluffy blending brush for shadows, but then I was down an eye brush.

So when I saw this one for $4.99 at Ulta, I figured I'd give it a try to see how it worked. The price was right and I like using synthetic brushes for concealer and foundation.

Nail of the Day

Well, more of a nail of the week. Summer is soon to be here and I have some review posts planned for the near future. This year has been kicking me in the rump so to speak. At least I'm still standing, but there's been a lot going on for me terms of career transition and just dealing with the fact that Life happens despite my careful plans.

So here's a little post on what my nails look like this week.
