Travel makeup

Me and my girlfriends are going on a 4 day trip to Vegas tomorrow so I thought I'd do a post on the makeup I like to bring with me when traveling. 
It's always hard to decide what to bring. I hate being confined to a certain set of things and not having the freedom to choose from my whole collection, whether it be clothing or makeup. Ugh I hate packing! 
When it comes to stuff like foundation, bronzer, and highlighter, it's enough to choose one of each thing and be content. But with eyeshadows, blushes, and lip products it's hard to pre-select the colors that I'm going to be wearing, especially in a place like Vegas. 
Anyways, here are the things I will be bringing,

My travel makeup bag

Face and Cheeks 
 I wanted to bring more cream/liquid products because its so dry in Vegas
L'oreal Studio Secrets primer
NARS sheer glow foundation 
MUFE HD powder
Benefit hoola bronzer 
MAC margin blush
MAC cream colour bases - virgin isle and tickle me pink 
NARS Orgasm illuminator (I love this!!)

Palettes are the best!
MAC Painterly paint pot 
MAC Taupographic shade stick
My MAC palette
NARS essential eye palette
MAC soften the mood eyeshadow trio 
Milani silver charm eyeshadow
Clinique gel eyeliner 
MAC black swan eyeliner 
Maybelline brow definer 
L'oreal Telescopic 
L'oreal Bare Naturale

A coral, a pink, a mauve, a nude, and a gloss that goes with them all
YSL rouge volupte - no. 30
MAC Creme Cup
MAC Blankety
Revlon Soft Nude
Sephora gloss - no. 14

Seems like a lot, but if it fits in the bag, then it's good for me =) 

I'm so excited! Will be back next week with some updates!
