Your Disaster Vacation! What's in your makeup bag?

Recommended Posts

So I'm going on vacation and I was just giving some thought as to what I'm going to pack in my makeup bag. Since I don't go anywhere without bringing some sort of makeup I got a weird thought... What if I got deserted on an island and could only bring one backpack along to finish my journey? With all other survival necessities packed, I figured I could narrow it down to 5(maybe 6) products/tools! Extreme cut back from the makeup routine I do every day, but here is mine! :

1. BB cream - Tarte has a good medium coverage multi-functional BB and it's with SPF of course :)

2. mascara - Use it for more than just for eyelashes. My new favorite is Lancome Hypnose.

3.tinted lip balm - I love my Maybelline Peach Kiss baby lips , tinted and contains SPF.

4. TWEEZERS! - The one that stays in my makeup bag is my ELF tweezer. Does the job and it has a cute snakeskin case!

5. Small bronzer-blush-highlight compact. Hellooooo UD NAKED Skin :)


So what are your 5(okaayy, or 6) items you would take with you if you were stranded?!

I think I would really only NEED concealer (because that takes care of pretty much my whole face) and maybe just some face wash and lipstick.


I actually went to Vegas a couple months ago (I live in Toronto) and our suitcases did not end up going where we went! I was without my suitcase and all my clothes for almost 3 days!! I was smart enough to pack my makeup in my carry on and checked in my liquid foundations and all of that in those clear bags and thank goodness I did!! I bought some new clothes and toiletries but I didn't have to raid MAC and Sephora to replace some of my essential makeup items.

I'm surprised more people haven't responded to this. What a fun topic!


1. I'd have to have a fruity/floraly perfume. Even with no makeup, perfume makes me feel so feminine.

2. Lip gloss or something to prevent dry lip. Yikes!! I can handle a lot, but my lips are generally very dry and the same color as my facial skin (no natural pink tint), so dry lips freak me out!

3. Mascara OR some falsies to enhance my eyes.

4. Bright coral nail polish for my piggies.

5. A razor

6. A toothbrush. When my teeth start feeling furry is when I start to lose my mind. :D


Hopefully some others will add to their list. Lists are always interesting

2) Lip Balm

3) Concealer

4) Moisturizer

5) Mascara

6) Toothbrush

    • There are a variety of benefits for Orange Essential Oil. I am mentioning some of them: 1. It lifts your mood up and reduce the stress 2. It treats skin conditions like acne 3. It helps with Upset Stomach 4. Can be used as a flavor in food and beverages
    • Personally I loveee Pyunkang Yul essence toner. It's so freaking refreshing
    • HAHA:) It is quite funny and even true sometimes;)))
    • I went to a function in August and I was used mascara. Since then the eyelashes of my eyes have become very thin. I did not benefit from the remedies. Right now my eyes look so bad because of eyelashes. Please suggest me a remedy for growing eyelashes.
    • I started using e.l.f. eyelid primer lock and didn't have any problems.  Just recently when I reordered the product, the container was a different color though the product color is the same.  I read the information from each one and one is made in China (new one) and my old one is made in USA.   I started using the China made one and my eyes are starting to become irritated. I'm not sure if it's the eye lock primer or a new body lotion I just started using (Nivea). I'm eliminating the Nivea to see if perhaps it's the China made eye lock e.l.f product.   Has anyone else had any similar issues with China vs USA made?
