As you can tell, I'm a lips and cheeks kind of gal.

What's in your make-up bag?


  1. I always have a comb, mirror, and Hurraw vegan lip balm with me (usually mint or almond flavors). I don't have a "makeup bag" that I bring with me. I guess I don't think about touching up my makeup while I'm on the go. At home, I have a ton of products from Urban Decay's vegan makeup line.

    When I worked in an office, I kept a lot more products with me. I also had an "emergency kit" in my office desk with snacks, Band-Aids, safety pins, Kleenex, etc.

  2. i ALWAYS have lip balm. when i travel i usually bring eye shadow pencils, lip gloss pencils, and solid perfume. if i think i might be going out, i'll bring eyebrow filler. i try to stay away from liquids (and powders) when i travel. just seems safer that way.

    1. I'm with you...I hate having to check luggage, so I bring as few liquids as possible (usually just one lip gloss and mascara). I've never had a problem with you mean avoiding breaking/shattering?

      The Beauty Department actually just posted a tutorial about fixing shattered powders. It looks easy, but I haven't tried it.

    2. yeah, i've took an eyeshadow palette with me on vacay once and when i opened it up, the shadow was all shattered even though the outside of the palette didn't appear to be crushed at all. :(

      and the beauty dept tutorial looks freaking awesome! tho i wonder if your makeup would forever more smell like alcohol? cause that sounds gross.

    3. I would imagine the alcohol smell would go away as it evaporates, but I'm not entirely sure since I haven't tried it. Definitely not a great smell.

  3. Thanks for the information... I really love your blog posts... specially those on Helping Organisations

  5. Your repayments is usually setup about 8 in order to 12 bi-weekly installments, or maybe but if your mortgage cash advance loan will depend on your own Interpersonal Stability cash flow, subsequently we can easily routine your payments for being coming from 3 to 4 monthly premiums. Routinely slated installments help to create a lessened check total that is the much better match your finances.
