My travel makeup bag

When I travel, I like to take all the makeup I probably would use. I would hate to get all the way to some foreign destination and not have one of my coveted makeup items. Being a beauty addict and a travel addict is somewhat of a challenge. So, I have learned to reduce my mega makeup selection down to a lot of error-proof items that will suit my makeup needs no matter where I am. What's also great about these products is that many of them can double as bronzer, blush, eyeliner, etc. So I don't have to everything I own just to look like did.  Here are the makeup products I reach for the most:

This may seem like a lot, but if you are a makeup addict, it's very hard to reduce the amount of makeup you carry with you. I take primarily cream and powder products because no matter what country I am in, that doesn't alarm security. I usually put my liquids in my TSA approved clear quart sized carry on.
