Do you make a smaller kit when you travel or do you take a lot of stuff so you have options? What kinds of cases do you like? I have this cute pouch in the shape of a pizza that I realized was perfect for lips on the go that I've started using. I really love it!

In my handbag, i have a few products usually in a kit with painkillers, small hairspray, tampons and other things. I usually take a lipstick, mascara, eyeliner lipgloss and anything else (depends on where i going and for how long). If i'm going on holiday i will usually take most my makeup in a bigger bag, i would take a couple options for each part of my face, haha:p


When I'm out and about, I only have a very small makeup bag with some lip products. I haven't actually traveled in a while, but I'll be moving to California so I'm just taking EVVVVVVVVERRRRRRRYYTHING. Well not really lol but yeah, taking most of my makeup with me. it'll be in my carry on. ;D

I try to limit myself to what I can fit in the pizza for every day walking around, but when I travel, half my carry-on is makeup! It's so heavy, but I don't want to leave anything behind... just in case.

@Bec So cute!

I use a small skull case that I bought at Daiso a couple of years ago! It's super inexpensive and it holds everything I need :)

I like to use a medium size makeup bag with a built in brush roll and pockets, they are so handy and inexpensive plus you can get them from loads of stores. If I travel heavier I tend to take a smallish train case that fits in my suitcase :)

I bought a textile clutch at H&M. It was inexpensive and is big enough to carry all my stuff with me...basics like concealer, mascara, lip balm or lip stick...and of course a brush, chewing gum, bobby pins and other essential things which you all knew. :)

I usually use this small polka dotted makeup bag that holds most of the eye and lips products I need (since I don't wear face products), but if I'm in a rush, I usually throw my makeup in my bag and go.

I use the clear case that I got from the Laura Mercier flawless face kit. It's easy to find what I need.

I use a trifold makeup bag that i got from either target or walmart when I'm travelling (like flying or going on a long road trip). More space than the little one-zipper bags to have a variety of stuff to choose from!

I love the Vera Bradley cosmetic cases! I use the medium sized one (http://www.verabradley.com/product/...) but they also have small and large sizes. Its more than enough room for whatever I'm taking plus it has a plastic liner so it doesn't get ruined if anything spills. :)

I change what I use in my purse a lot depending where I go. Sometimes if I am keeping my clinique foundation in my bag with me which is a hard bottle I carry it in a sunglass case that I glued a mirror in. When I travel I have a heavy duty case I got from IKEA, I'm not sure it was made for make up, maybe just travel but I love it.

I use a little Tokidoki bag I got from Sephora. Right now I've got some lip balm, lipstick, a lip gloss and a powder. There's really no method to my madness, I just throw whatever in there that I'm wearing minus the breakables.

I have a Clutch-sized ThirtyOne bag with hot pink ruffles :) I keep at least three kinds of lipstick and two eyeshadow palettes on me at all times, plus the brushes to use them. I have to leave the foundation and everything else at home...but I find myself slipping nail polish into my bag all the time.

I kinda plan it around my outfits. If I'm going summer hot, I usually just take some powder, concealer and a few pigments along with mascara, primer and eyeliner. If I'm going somewhere that my make up wont melt off, I usually take a rectangle case fill it with little odds and ends then take a few bigger pallets that won't break. It's terrible trying to decide what to bring. 

When traveling - due to TSA regulations - I take foil packets when I can of products. Shampoos, conditioners, body lotions, moisturizers, facial wash... for whatever reason TSA does NOT count those items in foils as they do liquids in bottles. I do keep all the foils in a different TSA approved ziploc bag, apart from my liquids in bottles, and not once have I been denied taking it on a plane (because you're technically limited to one TSA approved bag per person). The best thing about it because each foil tends to be a one-time use only I'm not bringing that stuff back with my from my trip so I have room for other stuff I buy. lol

I take three different - small - make up bags. In one bag I pack things like my toothbrush and I put the TSA bag with liquids in that bag. In a second bag the foils and makeup brushes. In the third my cosmetics and I take sample size cosmetics (got to love sample box subscription companies like Birchbox, MyGlam, Beauty Army, etc). Anything mini goes with me - mini mascara, mini eyeliner, mini lip gloss, mini lip stick. For IMATS I took with me samples from Glamour Doll Eyes so I wasn't lugging around eyeshadows that could break. The only large item I took with my was my blush, even my mineral foundation and powder I transferred enough into smaller containers.
