Travel Makeup Bag Essentials


travel essentials simplysona

I don’t know about you, but it’s so easy for me to accidentally over pack! Especially when it comes to my makeup bag because there are so many products I love. Figuring out what to bring on a trip can totally be overwhelming, and sometimes I end up bringing way more makeup than I need. In today’s blog post I thought I’d make it simple for you and reveal my travel makeup bag essentials. I’m happy to be partnering with Amazon and Neutrogena on this post to show you all of the products that I can’t live without when traveling!


1. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

The Giorgio Armani Foundation is by far one of my all time favorite products ever! It creates such a gorgeous radiant finish on the skin. I use the shade 3.5 and it’s the perfect color! When traveling, I always make sure that the products I’m using are ones that I can count on lasting and looking amazing.

2. Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes

I’ve used these makeup wipes for years, and if you’re an avid reader of the blog you probably know how much I love them. The Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes are one of Allure’s Best of Beauty picks for 2017. Allure’s editors try thousands of products and announce the best of the best, mass and prestige, every October. (It’s kind’ve a big deal!) These makeup wipes are so gentle on the skin and remove every trace of makeup, even waterproof mascara. It’s easy to see why they made it into Allure’s Best of Beauty picks this year.

3. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is another product I’ve mentioned all over the blog, I even talked about it in last months Sona Selects. I use the color ‘Custard’,  and it’s a great shade to conceal any darkness under my eyes. It’s such a lightweight formula that blends so seamlessly onto the skin.

4. La Mer Sheer Pressed Powder

If you’ve been a reader on the blog for awhile, you probably know how much I love the La Mer Translucent Loose Powder. When they released their Sheer Pressed Powder I was so excited, because it’s perfect for traveling! This powder has all of the same blurring effects as the loose powder, but it’s so compact and mess free. That’s exactly what to look for when packing a travel makeup bag!

5. Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Color

This product has become my holy grail bronzer ever since I first tried it on my channel. I have the shade deep and it’s absolutely amazing for warming up my complexion. I use this bronzer almost every single time I do my makeup, I seriously couldn’t travel without it!

6. Pérsona Cosmetics Identity Palette ($32)

Of course I can’t travel without my Persona Cosmetics Identity Palette, it has every shade I need to create eye looks for day or night.  The twelve warm buttery neutral shades compliment my brown eyes so well and blend so effortlessly on the lid. This palette is also great for travel because it’s so compact and fits perfectly in my makeup bag. It’s definitely at the top of my travel makeup bag essentials!

7. Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Sunscreen

It’s so important to be applying and SPF on the daily, and this Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Sunscreen is absolutely amazing. It’s great for sensitive skin and is so lightweight! This is another product that was handpicked by Allure for their Best of Beauty 2017. This mineral based sunscreen is definitely one to keep in your travel makeup bag year round.

8. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

This Too Faced mascara is a great product to take with you on your next trip! It creates such a thick, long, voluminous lash look that really opens up the eyes. I love wearing this with a full face of makeup, but it looks just as beautiful on the lashes with minimal shadow. I can’t say enough good things about this mascara.

9. Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint

This is another product I’ve raved about endlessly over the past few months, and it’s the best lip balm with a sheer tint I’ve ever used! When I’m not sure what lip product to wear, or my lips need a boost of hydration, I always gravitate towards this product. It’s a lip product that I always am glad is in my makeup bag.
