What’s in My Travel Makeup Bag | Spring Break Edition

For my schools Spring Break my friends and I went to the beach, which didn’t require a majority of these items but you never know when you’ll need to pop out. For myself that didn’t happen until the night before our departure and I sure was glad I brought so many things.

Utilize Your Resources for FREE Makeup!

Warning, this title is not sensationalized because you can get makeup for free without dumpster diving or whatever crazy methods that are showcased on YouTube. This method of receiving free products is called sampling. By sampling you are able to find your correct shade, which products you like and if you are willing to spend money on the full size item in the future. I believe every makeup counter gives samples of products (you just need to ask) and Sephora gives three per visit, so you are able to rack up on items you’ve been coveting without breaking the bank or making a purchase at the counter/store.

Sometime last week, my friend Raj and I went to the mall to look around and see if we could find something cute to wear for a huge party on-campus, which she did. While there we decided that we would go get a few samples of foundation and concealers that we were interested in trying from high-end companies like Lancome and Bobbi Brown. Eventually that turned into us shamelessly going to both Sephora’s in the mall for more samples of other products – like skin care and whatever else I could think of at the time. This left us with a nice amount of items to try to potentially purchase or to sample again. From this trip I ended with 10 samples which are listed below:

Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting foundation in Deep Bronze

Clinique Super Balanced foundation in 15 Golden

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Even Finish in Almond

Lancome Teint Idole foundation in 500 Suede W

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm

Facial Oil from Lancome not sure the name but who doesn’t love expensive products

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Primer in Caramel

Murad Essential -C Cleanser

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Smoothing Primer

Becca Skin Perfector in Rose Gold

I guess you could say that we had a pretty successful trip!
