My makeup essentials for a business trip

I'll be away for a few days on a business trip, and thought I could share with you what I'm bringing with me. Its quite basic, since I can't see myself putting on multicoloured may scare away non makeup salespeople :D


Biore UV Base SPF 50 PA+++
Smashbox Light Primer - sample size
Cle de Peau concealer
Guerlain Meteorites Mythic travel size
CK Infinity Matte foundation

MAC Emote blush
Canmake Cream Cheek blush 07 (LE)
Silk Naturals blush in Sassy

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Cargo blu-ray undereye concealer
Lunasol Geminate liner in brown
Kate Frame Impact liner BK-1
Kate Super Sharp liner BK-1
Mary Kay Ultimate mascara
ELF quad (ELF Pink Ice, MAC Brun, MAC Electra, ELF Dusk)

Korres Mango Lipstick in 13 Natural Pink
T'estimo lipstick in RS-1
OCC Lip Tar in Pageant

There are some night events to attend, hence the smokey eye shades and strong lip colour options :D

All packed in my Shu Uemura GWP pouch, except the foundation + UV base


These are the brushes I'm bringing:


MAC 187 - for powder
Spa Resource angled face brush - for contouring
MAC 138 - for blush
Sephora crease brush - for blending
Posh blending/crease brush - for the outer corner of eye
ELF eyeshadow brush - general all over the lid application
Annabelle slant brush - great for gel liners. Actually I could take this out, since I decided to bring liquid liners instead of a gel liner.
Crown Brush liner & spoolie brush - for filling in brows
Koji 38mm lash curler

I don't usually pack my brushes in a brush roll when I'm travelling. Instead I have a plastic pencil case box for them - protects them from being bent out of shape.

What do you normally bring on a trip?

I also don't put my brushes on a roll when I travel.. I prefer the bag too :)

For business trips, I usually have lots of moisturizer because I find that anytime you're traveling, your skin deprives of moisture! Not sure why :p I pack all basic minis, and face and body wash :)

great selection! I lug around that many items when I travel (or every weekend when I stay over at my bf's). Except, I carry mostly travel-sized brushes

Lovely picks! I haven't tried ANY of these, I definitely should check them out.

Where did you get the Biore UV Base? Is it from Asia?

Catherine said...

This looks great! I really need to make myself a list of makeup/beauty to bring while traveling. I always end up bringing wayyyy too much stuff!

Love looking at what is inside your cosmetics bag. For travel I tend to leave out my primer becuz I haven space in my ziplock bag for liquids!

Rimmel liquid foundation
Esprique precious loose powder
Bobbi brown blusher
Two majolica Majorca eye palettes
One juicy tubes
One v moisturizing Bobbi brown lipstick
One case of shu uemura make up brushes in a slim case

That's it!
