Thanksgiving Makeup Bag

This Thanksgiving I'm heading down to Virginia to celebrate with Alex's family. We'll be staying for three days with lots of festivities and adventures in between. My makeup bag selections have to be everyday appropriate with the option for something a little more fancy. I think I've gathered the perfect team.

The Stila One Step Correct primer is a given, as well as my two different shades of the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer to mix for the perfect shade. For concealer I'm bringing my two favorites, the Bobbi Brown Corrector in "Light Bisque" for the under eyes and the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer for everywhere else (specifically my red shining Rudolph nose). My blush choice was an easy one as Revlon's "Wine Not" can be worn lightly for a nice flush or really built up for an evening look. For brows I've been testing out the Anastasia Brow Wiz in "Soft Brown" lately and want to see it in action during travel. 

On to eyes I've brought a lot of different products for any time of look I'll want to create during the trip. I'm bringing my trusty NYX Eye Shadow Base in "Skin Tone" as it's the creamiest and best base I've tried to date. I'm going to be out and about and not having time to worry if my shadows are still there. This base takes all worry away. I'm bringing my trusty Stila in the Light Palette as it has every time of Thanksgiving festive shade I could want. I know I'll be piling on "Kitten" like a fiend during the few days for a perfectly shimmery eye.

Two eye liners are coming with me for day and night looks. MAC's Eye Kohl Pencil in "Teddy" will do nicely for more natural, smudged out day looks with Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner for cat eyes and bolder lines in the evening. Maybelline's The Rocket Mascara is a fool proof choice for bold, voluminous lashes that hold their curl all day long.

I tend to always overdo it on lip products so I'm trying to keep things minimal this trip by only bringing two. MAC's "Syrup" is a must for a moisturized every day my lips but better look while Clinique's Chubby Stick in "Grandest Grape" is a perfect option for a bold lip while still packing the moisture. 

I'm so excited for the trip but not really looking forward to the long car ride there. I have the books I'm currently reading though so I'll be all set!

xoxo Kayla
