Makeup Travel Bag

Hello Everyone!
For Christmas this year I received a few Sephora gift cards! As I was shopping around yesterday I found myself really drawn to the makeup bags. This may be because my amazing boyfriend booked us a trip to New York City and we leave tomorrow morning!!! Can you tell I am so excited?? Anyways, I did not have a good makeup bag to travel with so I decided to invest in one!

I found this gem and decided it would be perfect! This is called "The Excursionist" and it is a quilted pleather bag. I purchased this at Sephora and the price is $48.00.

This bag folds out and it has 3 main compartments. The bottom compartment is a large zip pouch that is permanently attached to the makeup bag.

 I decided to use this pouch as a "single item" bag. This holds my lip products, concealers, eye liners, mascaras, single eye shadows etc. I was really surprised how much this compartment holds! As you can see right above this compartment is a space for makeup brushes. I have not packed those yet because I will want to use them today and tomorrow morning before we go to the airport! You could also use that space for eye liners or lip liners!

The middle compartment is about the same size. It is removable and attaches with velcro to this makeup bag. I decided to use this compartment for foundations, powders, blushes and any other powder product that I use. This also holds quite a lot! Above this pouch there are more spaces for brushes!

Last but not least is the top pouch. It is a large mesh pouch that is PERFECT for palettes. I have the Naked 2 palette, the Marc Jacobs "Lolita" palette, theBalm "Nude Tude" palette, the Naked Basics palette, and the trio from Sigma that they sent me for joining the Pro program. I also threw in some individual lashes to take. I could probably fit at least one more of the naked palettes in this pouch. It is very spacious.

Overall I am super happy with this purchase! It is exactly what I needed and I think it will make traveling a whole lot easier!

If you all would like to know my "must have" travel makeup products let me know and I can do a post on it!!

I hope this was helpful :)
