If you bring makeup with you on a carry-on, what do you bring?

If you travel with your makeup, this is for you!

So I'm bringing majority of my makeup with me to California since I'm not sure how long I'll be staying. I thought it'd just be a good idea to just bring everything. I know I'm keeping my liquid things in my suitcase, that's a given. I was thinking about putting my eyeshadows, blushes, etc. my powder-y things in my carry-on though. I certainly have the room for it. I have spiffy pockets so I can organize it, yay! I heard some people had issues with lipsticks though? Some people could bring them in a carry-on, others had to put it in their suitcase. My lip gloss will be going in the suitcase. Actually, I'm thinking of sending a few products via mail to my grandma's in case my bag gets lost, lol!

So yeah...

You have the basic idea down for sure! I haven't had much of a problem with lipsticks, cream products or glosses in my carry-on flying domestically, however I have had issues flying internationally in the past. I always keep my pressed/powder products on my carry-on to make sure it does not break, and maybe the more expensive items I can't afford to loose like my tools... [brushes, blow dryer, flat iron, clarisonic, epillator, etc...]

If you decide to mail things ahead of time, make sure you get insurance and a tracking number on your package in case it gets lost. I would cry if I lost anything and did not have insurance...  =/

I'm always going out of town to visit my boyfriend, and I always wanna make sure I look great! My makeup bag consists of: foundation, foundation brush, powder, eyebrow filler, a neutral palette of eyeshadows that I can create different looks with, primer, a few eye brushes, one blush, a blush brush, and a gloss. Believe it or not, that all fits in my tiny Betsey Johnson case! (Sample sized products, holla!)

I flew out of JFK and didn't have a problem bringing this all with me... and they have TIGHT security. It's a known fact. Girls wear makeup. They weren't too keen on my carrying mace onboard though... that got thrown out. =P

I'd take everything carry on, and just make sure your liquids are in plastic bags!
