Travel Makeup Bag- packing for a week

Hello!! I just did a travel makeup bag post at the end of May, but I was only going away for a long weekend so I didn't bring a ton of makeup. My husband and I are going to Myrtle Beach for a week so it was hard to limit what I am bringing with me since I will be gone for more than a few days! 

Here is the bag I'm bringing with me. It's pretty big and has a lot of pockets. 

From left to right-
•Urban Decay All Nighter Spray
•Benefit Porefessional Primer
•Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation 
•Covergirl Outlast Foundation
•Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealor
•Mac Pro Longwear Concealor 
•Mac Paintpot in Painterly 

I always feel the need to bring two of a lot  things because I'm always paranoid something will run out. 

Top row
•Nars Orgasm Blush
•Nars bronzer/highlight duo in Paloma
Bottom Row
•Benefit Hoola Bronzer
•Benefit Rockateur Blush 
•Mac Soft and Gentle Highlighter 

For eyeshadow I tried to keep my palettes smaller so they didn't take up a lot of space. 
•Urban Decay Naked2 Basics
•Maybelline The Nudes 
•L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows in Smoldering Plum (top) and Amber Rush (bottom)

•Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes mascara
•L'Oreal Teleacopic Mascara 
•Urban Decay Glitter Liner in Baked
•L'Oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Liner 
•L'Oreal Paris felt tip liner 
•L'Oreal Silkissime Eyeliner Pencil 
•Lord & Berry Kohl Liner 
•Anastasia Brow Wiz 
•Benefit Gimme Brow
•Anastasia Brow Gel
•Nyx Brow powder kit 

•Maybelline Matte Lipstick in Touch of Spice
•Mac Faux Lipstick
•Mac Viva Glam 2 Lipstick 
•Nyx Butter Glossss in Madaline and Angel Food Cake 

I didn't show my brushes because I included them in my last travel makeup bag post and they are the same ones I use on an everyday basis. I will do a more detailed post very soon on my must have brushes!

Thank you all for reading! 


  1. Great post Ashley! How is the L'oreal Telescopic Mascara? I've been wanting to try it. Rimmel mascaras seem to be my favorite!

    1. Thank you!! The telescopic is my HG mascara!! I definitely recommend it! What is your favorite Rimmel one??

    2. Scandalous is my absolute favorite, but that and Retro Glam together creates awesome volume! I definitely will have to pick up Telescopic though, I need that extra length. Would you mind doing a review if you haven't already? (:

    3. I will have to try those ones, thanks!! And I definitely will do a review on the telescopic for you!

  2. Gorgeous makeup bag and contents Ashley! I'm like you! It depends on the length of the trip and season as to what I'll bring (and how much). I like to bring colors that compliment the outfits I'm packing. You want to have options. I find lipsticks are great for changing up a look. That an eyeshadow. Great post!

    1. Thanks Kim! I totally agree- I always try to pack with the seasons and what will look good with what I'm wearing!

  3. One of my favorite youtubers uses soft and gentle! :) I try to pack as lightly as I possibly can haha, so that's usually only one or two of each kind of product :P Can't wait to see your brushes, I feel like even though I like my current brushes I'm always wanting to discover more!
