What's in my Travel Makeup Bag?

*All products in this post were purchased with my own money*

I've been making a lot of weekend trips lately so I thought I would share a little peek into my makeup bag.

I Picked up this cute little Isaac Mizrahi makeup bag from Marshalls late last year. It looks small but surprisingly fits quite a lot inside. 
Now let's get to the makeup...
I'm a bit of a sample hoarder, but often forget to actually use them. What better time to use them then while travelling.
Primer- Right now, I have 2 small sample primers -- I use the Benefit Porefessional in the area where I have the most visible pores (around my nose). On the rest of my face I use the Make Up Forever HD Primer. 
MAC Studio finish concealer NC35 (for blemishes on the face)
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - Ginger (for under the eyes)

NARSissist Blush, Contour and Lip Palette - This is a great little palette for travelling it contains 3 blushes, Laguna bronzer, Albatross Highlighter and a pretty pink lip gloss all housed in a cute mirrored palette. 

I love to keep things super simple for my eyes while travelling, so I usually just take a small MAC palette and switch out colours depending on my mood and weather or not I will be attending any evening events while I'm away. 
The shadows currently in my palette are Honesty, Mulch, Sumptuous Olive, Carbon. 

For an easy low maintenance brow routine I stick with my trusty Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown.

A basic black eyeliner is a must! NARS Larger than Life Longwear Eyeliner - Black

and of course an eyelash curler.

I usually have (on average) 3-5 lip products in my purse at any given time so I don't worry too much about putting lipstick in my makeup bag. But for the purpose of this post I have added 

As far as brushes go, I tend to grab whatever I'm loving at the moment and/or whatever is clean!

So there you have it, a peek into my makeup bag. 
What are your travel must-haves? Let me know in the comments below.
