I love to travel. Not just the experience of seeing new places and exploring new things. I like airports. Airplane food. SkyMall magazine. Packing. Have I totally weirded you out yet? I'm so lucky that YouTube is a job that requires a ton of travel, my frequent flyer miles are singing the praises! I've traveled enough over the years to now be able to say I've gotten packing my makeup down to a science, compact & just the right amount. Right now I'm in Los Angeles for a few top-secret shoots, & I thought I'd give you guys a peek into my makeup bag!

I've mastered the art of bringing just what I need what I travel (makeup wise that is...I still manage to pack 6 pairs of shoes for a weekend trip...eek!) But a lot of that skillful packing is due to the sheer genius of products that are designed for travel! This Lorac Palette comes with two shadow brushes, 4 shadows, 2 highlights, 2 blushes and a bronzer. Paired with the Bobbi Brown brush set I've already eliminated what would take up the most room when I travel! & my final tip in makeup packing, is using a soft makeup bag! While structured bags look sleek, if the sides of your makeup bag are soft, you can in squeeze more (because YES you really do need one more lip-color)
