What's In My Travel Beauty Bag(s)?

So I leave tomorrow for my three week trip to the US! I feel like I've been waiting forever for this trip to come, and now that it's here, I feel so unprepared! Why must I procrastinate in every aspect of my life?? I'm pretty sure I've never shared with you guys what products I've taken travelling in the past, usually it's nothing exciting, especially makeup wise as I'm never really bothered much in that department! I figured this trip I'd put more effort into my face as I'm going to some big cities (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Denver!). I tried to pack light, especially considering I'll be buying a WHOLE LOT while I'm there, but I may have overdone it on the skincare... :P My excuse is that my skin is actually pretty good right now and I don't want to mess it up! Plus I'm gone for three weeks so I cant just switch it up for an off week, y'know? Also, ignore the weird lighting in these photos. It was raining pretty heavily today! Plus, my camera decided to start acting up and basically died. Just before my trip of course!! I had to wipe the settings and I have no idea what they were to put it back to what it was lol. Ended up being a bad connection between the lens and the body which a quick clean fixed (for now...).

So I tried to limit myself in the base/cheek areas, but ended up with a lot of eye and lip products...whoops. I think I have a good mix though, and I reckon I could do a range of looks. And three weeks is a long time...I gotta have options! I haven't photographed the brushes I'm bringing (they were wet!) but I'm basically taking the buffing, blush, brow, deluxe crease and base shadow brushes from Real Techniques, my Zoeva Luxe Sheer Cheek, Crop kabuki brush and my Sigma E55.

So yeah, three masks (in total) may be overkill but they all do different things and are totally necessary! Remember I'm away for three weeks...(constant excuse). Also the climate will be COMPLETELY different and I'm anticipating my skin will freak out so I need to have an arsenal to suit every need! Because it's winter there, and a much colder winter at that, I've packed the big guns in terms of moisture like my Antipodes products and facial oils. I will definitely be decanting the bulky things like the hair oil and toner, and I'll try and find a smaller container for my moisturisers! Also, it's so annoying that it's winter because my winter clothes are so massive and take up so much spaaaace wah.

I've never been one to do a whole in flight ROUTINE, but given it's going to be a long-ass flight (13 hours I think?), I figured I would bring a few products to keep me fresh and moisturised. Hopefully I'll do a mid-flight moisturising mask and then apply some toner and rose hip oil...or something! I've also ended up popping in a few makeup bits like the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, concealer, Gimme Brow, and a blush and powder. 

Sooo yeah, in a way I think I've packed well but also we'll see if I actually use all of the products I bring! While I'm hella excited to buy a bunch of stuff...will it FIT in my suitcase??? Anyway, I'm not sure what the blogging situation will be while I'm away...As of right now I haven't pre-written/scheduled any posts - whoops! I do however have a few photos for a couple of posts and I'm taking my laptop so I might write some while I'm over there? I'm not sure but please don't mind if I take a break while I'm away! I'll have some amazing and exciting content when I'm back! Well y'all, see ya on tha flippy flip!
