But then again, I tell myself that there are worse things to like. Like drugs or gambling. Of that sort.
I brought home with me my makeup bag of choice which was something I purchased last year during the Sephora F&F sale. I absolutely love this bag... it's beautiful!
Pretty much everything I brought along with me. The liquids in the middle were stored in a ziplock bag to comply with TSA regulations but everything else was in there. Unfortunately this bag doesn't fit a lot of stuff due to the large mirror in the middle.
Dior blush in Passionfruit and Dior quint in Earth Reflections
Current fave of the moment! Becca Luminous Skin Color and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector.
Shimmering Skin Perfector on the left, foundation on the right
A gorgeous foundation glow! Absolutely dewy, and healthy looking.
The lip products - the first 3 jars are decanted lipsticks I made using bead jars.
Revlon's Black Cherry, Love the Red and Fuchsia Fusion
My favorite Burt's Bees pomegranate lip balm and my favorite MLBB shade, Dior lipstick in Ultra Nude.
One of my favorite to-go concealers, Maybelline's Mineral Powder concealer.
Biore UV SPF 50 sunscreen for that crazy SoCal sun!

Some of my essential brushes
Ojon Damage Reverse Hair Serum - LOVE this stuff!
My favorite Coco Chanel perfume!
I also went to Sally's Beauty yesterday and picked up these China Glaze nail colors for an insane price. These were all around $1+ each!!!! I'm tempted to go back and pick up more colors. AHH!
Essie Pink a Boo as my base - I brought this with me from my apartment
Topped off with China Glaze's Tattered and Scattered
Reminds me of a delicious birthday cake and confetti! hah.
That's pretty much it in my travel bag. I'm flying back tonight to get ready for the work week ahead. It has been a fun Independence Day and I'm joyed that I was able to spend it hanging out with family. It's funny how the older we get, the more we want to spend time with them. I remembered wanting to be as far away as possible for college and rebelling in ways that only teenagers are capable of. But now I sort of appreciate my parents and brother and our relationships have only bonded in the 5 years I've been in the Bay Area. Still close enough to fly home but enough distance to keep my sanity, o_o
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
