What’s in My Travel Makeup Bag

If you follow That Tall Girl on Facebook, you know I’m about to head out on a fun vacation to California. While I haven’t started packing yet (ahh!) I do know what beauty products I’ll be taking with me. Read on to find out what my travel must-haves are.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation: When I’m traveling I want a foundation that’s going to cover any imperfections, look natural and last all day and into the night. This Tarte foundation does it all! Plus the packaging is super convenient and won’t end up breaking during a long trip.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer: Like my foundation, I want my concealer to last while I’m out and about seeing the sights. MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer does just that while covering everything from dark circles to blemishes.

Mark Powder Buff Natural Skin Foundation: This powder is a staple in my makeup bag (as see can see in the photo above!) so I can’t leave home without it. It does double duty as a powder foundation and mattifying powder and the packaging is great for on-the-go.

Ulta Contour Kit: If you’ve read my blog in the last couple months you know how obsessed I’ve been with this contour kit from Ulta. I’ll be using the contour shades for contouring (duh), bronzer and eye shadow. The lighter, slightly shimmery shades are also great for eye shadows or highlighting.

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner: Another staple, this eye liner works for any look and can be easily smoked out for a little more drama. Since I don’t want to deal with traveling with liquid liner this guy is coming with me!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mini Mascara: I picked this up at Ulta and am so glad to have a travel friendly version of my favorite mascara. It volumizes lashes and adds the perfect amount of lash drama.

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso: I’ve raved about the Milani baked blushes before and this shade is so versatile. It makes my skin look bright and fresh and works well with any look.

February Favorites

Wooooo. I feel like I’ve had this post ready to go for quite some time but haven’t had a second to sit down and upload it. However, I managed to find a few moments in this already busy month of March to share my favorite products from February.

Read on to see what I was loving and don’t forget to share your favorite products with me in the Comments section!

1. L’Oreal Brow Stylist Designer: I’ll be honest, I’ve got naturally full brows so I never thought I needed to do much with them. However, this product is a game changer for me. It’s perfect for filling in and giving shape to your brows and it’s so much more affordable than similar brow products on the market. It took me a while to find it in stock so if you happen to see it while you’re out—BUY IT.

2. ULTA Contour Kit: I’ve talked about this contour kit from Ulta quite a bit on this blog (see a full review here) and I’m still loving it. Lately I’ve been doing a barely there eye makeup look using the matte brown shades from this palette.

3. Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in Smoky Topaz: When I bought this lip gloss it was quite what I wanted. However, it’s really grown on me. It’s a lovely pinky nude color that works well with many looks. I love Revlon glosses and have been using this one constantly!

4. Aerie Racerback Boho Bralette: When it comes to fashion, comfort is key. This bralette from Aerie is as comfortable as it gets! They come in lots of colors and are so lacy and beautiful. They’re a feminine, sexy option when you want to be comfy but still feel like you’ve got your you-know-what together.
