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.

Product Review: Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso

71748982105So in my last post I mentioned how busy I’ve been and I definitely intended to blog more regularly.

And then Orange is the New Black happened…

Needless to say, I’ve been hunkered down watching that as much as possible and haven’t had much time for anything else. However, I finally made it though the whole season and I  thought I would finally sit down and write a short review about a new product I’ve been using.

I’ve been wanting to try Milani’s Baked Blush in Luminoso for a while, and when I spotted it in CVS a couple weeks ago I finally decided to take the plunge. This blush is a gorgeous peach shade with just a hint of shimmer in it.

Lately I’ve been wearing rosier blush shades, but this one is great for the summer time. It gives your cheeks a natural, sun-kissed flush that pairs well with a tan. I’d say it’s pretty pigmented so start out with just a light dusting of color–you can always build it up! Plus the fact that it’s a natural-looking blush means it works well with lots of different makeup looks.

All in all, if you’re looking to try a new blush for summertime, I highly suggest Milani’s Baked Blush in Luminoso! I’m definitely a fan and can’t wait to try out more colors from this line.

If you’ve tried this or any of the other Baked Blushes by Milani, let me know in the Comments section!
