For a lot of people, myself included, the holidays are usually a time for traveling. This year Ginger is coming along, so that means I'm down to one overhead bag and Ginger's carrier. While packing 10 days worth of clothes, accessories, and doggy supplies into my trusty yellow bag is going to be difficult, one way to create space is to pare down my beauty routine to the essentials. I don't wear a ton of makeup regularly anyway, but like most of the ladies I know, I've amassed more than my fair share of products. So if you're jet-setting this Christmas, instead of just tossing your entire cosmetics bag into your suitcase and praying for the zipper to close, give my trusty makeup essentials a try!
bareminerals bareskin foundation light feel, just enough coverage, and easy on skin (aka liquid gold)
maybelline highlighting concealer does the work of both concealer and highlighter in one, in a portable easy-to-use container
it cosmetics brightening face disc gives winter skin a beautiful, healthy glow (and contains anti-aging ingredients!)
maybelline "the nudes" eyeshadow palette my new go-to! in love with the mix of neutrals and shimmer, plus it can do double duty for filling in brows, too
