Road Trip Beauty: What I’m Taking Cross-Country

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m going on a trip to visit my family and friends in my hometown. While I’m leaving tomorrow, I thought I’d start getting packed today, and that includes all the beauty products I plan to bring.

(FYI, there will still be Makeup Files posts while I’m gone. No worries!)

Since this is a road trip, I don’t have to worry about airline restrictions. I can take whatever I want!

roadTrip01It all fits inside this black travel bag. I’ve been using it for years (hence how beat up it looks) and it fits everything you’ll see below. This bag isn’t too big. It’s just about the size of a medium handbag.

Here’s what I’m bringing:


roadTrip02For the body, I’ve got…

It’s all about smelling good and protecting my skin.


roadTrip03For my hair, I’m bringing…

I’m also bringing hair brushes and spare hair binders. Plus, there’ll be a flat iron and hair dryer, too. And I’ll probably use whatever body wash is available in the hotel room.


roadTrip04For my face, I’ve got…

Expect reviews of the Colorescience Pro products when I get back.


For makeup, I’m bringing…

Expect swatches of the Youngblood Mighty Shiny Lip Gels next week.

As you can see, I’m bringing quite a bit for this week-long trip. I have a feeling that I’ll be adding more to my carrying case before I leave tomorrow; mostly in the form of eye shadow.

Do you think there’s anything I’m missing? (Don’t worry, I’m bringing a tooth brush.)
