Organizing - My Travel Bag

Hi There Everyone...

People who know me personally would say my I'm most passionate about home decor, cleaning & organizing and makeup which is a fairly recent love... I love to clean my home and make it spotless (though it hardly ever spotless) and I'm super duper organized much to the dismay of my hubby… One of the reasons I fight with my hubby is most probably because he dint put the things back where they were… I’m always re doing my room and getting a bit more closer to perfection.. But there’s still a long way to go…

So I thought I show you how I packed for my vacation... I wouldn’t say it’s the best and most probably I’ll change it for my next travel.. But for now I am reasonably satisfied..


So first let’s get into the best part... Now I got this bag from eBay for $3 … It’s a decent sized bag but I’m not sure of its quality since it was very cheap and don’t know when it will rip on me.. It has some pockets on the flap that you open up and a mirror that is attached... Pretty handy huh?

So when I’m in India I hardly use any makeup… Just a BB cream, a nude lipstick and an all over eyeshadow topped with black eyeliner… But this time I did pack in some more because I have a couple of events I am attending which includes some engagement parties, house warming etc..

Eyes: Naked palette, M.A.C Paint pot in Groundwork, Loreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss, Prestige Total Intensity Liners in Deepest Black and Fierce Blue and Maybelline One by One Volume Express Mascara

Lips: Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in 044 Sunbaked, NYX Sheer Gloss in Cinnamon, Bourjois Levres Contour Lip liner in 16 Extravagante, Sleek True Color Lipstick in 815 Tweek, Revlon Super Lustrous in 671 Mink Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 085 Sugar Plum and Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 105.

Face: Sephora Smoothing Prmer samples, Inglot Under Makeup Base Primer (this is almost over.. So I just wanted to finish it), L'oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation in D/W7 Gold Amber (only to be used for special events), M.A.C Face and Body Foundation ( This is even lighter than a BB cream so I decided to use this as my go to foundation for when I am out and about...), Benefit Chacha Tint sample, Benefit the POREfessional sample, Wet n Wild coloricon blush in Mellow Wine, NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator  and M.A.C Studi Finish Concealor in NW35 and NYX The Twin Cake Poweder in CP13 Perfect Tan (which I forgot to include in the pics)

Brushes & ToolsReal Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (can't travel without this), Real Techniques Your Finish/Perfected Blush BrushReal Techniques Your Finish/Perfected Stippling Brush and a bunch of coastal scents eye brushes...

2) Skincare, Hair & Miscellaneous 

For this I got a bag or rather a lunchbox from Carrefour. So I put all the bathroom/shower items in one and the rest in another...

Shower Items: Pantene Smooth & Silky Shampoo and Conditioner, Fa Yoghurt Shower Cream in Vanilla and Honey, Head & Shoulders Shampoo, Toothbrushes with Steripod, razors, a small pump bottle containing Bioderma White Moussant Cleanser(the cleanser was almost over and I did not want to take the huge tube so I transferred it to this small pump bottle from DAISO), L'oreal Elvive Smooth Intense Anti-Frizz Serum and Revlon hairbrush.

Random Items: Cotton rounds, Neutrogena Deep Clean Wipes, Bioderma Sensibio H2O, L'oreal White Perfect day cream, Bioderma Sunscreen, Banana Boat Sunscreen spray, L'oreal Elnett satin Hairspray and Bourjois Deodorant.

3) Medicines

I got this bag when my hubby purchased his shaving cream. So I used this for all the medicines...
