So I'm still sharing from my #Pribattical back in November of last year (almost done, promise!) I don't have a traditional packing capsule to share, mostly because: it was a nightmare, I didn't love what I packed, and I don't think I did a great job. I kept saying, "this is not a fashion trip" ha!

Buuut I thought it'd be fun to share my "make-up capsule" from the month! I've gone through various stages of liking or enjoying make-up in my life, but since I've become a full-blown obsessive in the last two years-ish, packing this capsule was just as hard as packing my other stuff!

This may look like a lot of products, but I was mostly packing for very natural daily make-up (and honestly, most of the time I was in India I didn't wear any). I had some some nights out to consider (varying levels of glam) along with Thanksgiving (and family pictures!)

Most importantly - with the exception of the liquid products in the center, EVERYTHING fit in this tiny ipsy make-up bag. With a bit of room to spare, in fact, the concealer usually went in as well. I didn't have a lot space for make-up, but I had to be prepared with everything I needed! Oh - my lip products were plentiful and strewn about as well.

Base
e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Luminous Matte Primer | I really like this primer, it feels like moisturizer, in case I ran out, or was in a hurry. It's also the smallest primer tube I have.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation | I think I wore this only a few times, when I was really going for it and doing a full beat. I picked this foundation because it was the smallest one I had, & didn't really think past that! Though, why didn't I realize I could not wear a matte foundation in India with 100% humidity?! It's fine, I didn't wear foundation in India.

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Medium | Most days, if I was wearing make-up at all, my face/base routine was just concealer. I needed one that was full-coverage, brightening, & did it all. This Maybelline one is a Hall of Fame item for most everybody, including myself, & worked great.

Wet n Wild Contouring Palette in Dulce de Leche | This has become a go-to for traveling! Travel make-up is all about maximizing products (= space) & with this handy palette you get a setting powder & a matte bronzer (works well in case you also have a palette with a shimmery bronzer.) Also these palettes are great and a dupe for Marc Jacobs bronzer SO get your hands on one. (I have both shades!)

Eyes
Essence Make Me Brow in Browny Brows | I didn't even pack a brow pencil! So, that should tell you how satisfied I am with this product alone for combing, taming, and slightly shading my brows.

e.l.f. Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette in Summer Breeze | This palette was perfect for achieving a very simple daily eye look, or a darker, more dramatic smoky eye. You might be thinking - but it's all mattes! I used the browns in this palette + my Wet n Wild highlighter for a daily look (double duty, folks!) & basically the whole spectrum + my Super Shock shadow for a full lewk. This palette is so great for building up your shadow to your deseired intensity/drama level. I will say, I did get bored using only mattes & a palette with more of a variety would have been better, but I chose it for purely spacial reasons.

ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Weenie | For the days when my highlighter wouldn't cut it, I packed this metallic eyeshadow. These shadows are THE best, & this was all I needed to elevate my eye look. It could have been nice to have more shimmery options, but, I didn't really need them.

NYX Epic Ink Liner | I wore eyeliner very sparingly, but I knew I would want my favorite one on hand!

L'oreal Lash Paradise Mascara | I'm a two mascara minimum kind of girl (sometimes more) but this tiny make-up bag called for only one. SO, I needed one that did it all. This mascara has gotten so much buzz and for good reason. It's a great, affordable product, that did exactly what I needed.

Face
Morphe Brontour in Vlogger | I know, I know, TWO matte bronzers? This shade, for me, is perfect for contouring (vs. the other that's just for bronzing.) This is a good time to say I'm still searching for the perfect all-in-one travel palette with blush, highlighter, and matte bronzer.

Note Cosmetics Luminous Silk Blusher in Desert-Rose | Packing individual products like these next three is not ideal for travel, but again, I don't have them in a palette. This was more about finding products I would be happy wearing all month. This is a perfect everyday blush!

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso | This blush, the famed dupe of Nars Orgasm, is more of a blush-highlighter hybrid in my mind. If you're not extra like me, you could pack this product to serve both needs.

Wet n Wild Highlighter in Precious Petals | How do you pack ONE highlighter to wear for an entire month? This one is gorgeous, universally flattering, & works as well on the eyes as the cheekbones.

Brushes
Luxie Duo Fiber Brush, Tapered Highlighting Brush, and Precision Foundation Brush | I like traveling with a set of brushes because it makes me feel cute. These brushes (via Boxycharm) are great quality, & this trio pretty much covers it for your face products. I especially like the Duo Fiber brush because I tend to be heavy-handed with bronzer/blush.

Wet n Wild Crease Brush | This is a mini crease brush that is perfect for getting your eyeshadow exactly where you want it and nowhere else. Also, $3.

e.l.f. C Brush | This particular brush has been a favorite of mine for years, & in my opinion, is all I need in addition to a crease brush for eyeshadow (I find between the two of these, you can cover all your shadow needs if you're creative!) This brush is dense & great for packing on color or your base shade on your lid.

e.l.f. Fluffy Crease Brush | Could I have chosen one crease brush? Yes, but this one is more dense & therefore better for blending an overall look (& fixing a mess!) Not to mention, if you're traveling & using multiple colors, only having one crease brush would be a serious pain.

Sephora Collection PRO Airbrush Sweep Brush | Art's mom gifted me this a while ago (thanks Libby!) & I can't believe I haven't mentioned it yet, because it has become my FAVORITE contour brush. It's the perfect size for it, & it's mini and perfect for traveling.

Lips
*Of course I forgot to photograph these, not that they would fit in the above picture!

ColourPop Lux Lipstick in LA Lady | This is where things got a little extra. I love lip products more than anything, & therefore wanted to cover all my bases. This shade, for me, is the perfect creme MLBB, I hadn't written about it yet, but I've been wearing it non-stop!

Girlactik Matte Lip Paint in Posh | A matte MLBB. Loove this product. Here's what it looks like on me.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Tampered | A creme mauve. Another great, everyday option.

ColourPop Lippie Stix in Lumiere | A creme dusty pink, I didn't need both ^ of these but this is so good.

NYX Liquid Lipstick in Kitten Heels | A true red matte! I thought this would be really fun with my read sweater & it was! I have this in a mini which was so clutch for traveling.

LORAC Pro Matte Lip Color in Cabernet | I guess I just wanted a vampy option for that time of year, but I probably could have left it behind. It's a statement (here's what it looks like on me.)
