I’m heading out of town for 30 days. Comments are turned off, and I cannot answer any of your wonderful emails.  My apologies.

I’m packing very late into the night but took a few minutes to post my makeup for my upcoming trip:

  1. Chanel Ombre Perlees eyeshadow palette (reviewed here)
  2. Soliel Tan de Chanel powder bronzer in Terre Epice
  3. Tom Pecheux for Estee Lauder Pure Color Night Luminous Powder (reviewed here)
  4. Various brushes and tools, including tweezers, scissors, cuticle nippers, eyeliner and eyeshadow brushes
  5. Powder brushes, including MAC 168, Chanel Powder brush and MAC blush brush
  6. Chanel Le Vernis in Strong (reviewed here).  I’m also taking a Sally Hansen clear polish (not pictured)
  7. Le Metier de Beaute Precision Eyeliner (reviewed here)
  8. Le Meter de Beaute Peau Vierge Concealer
  9. Guerlain Issima concealer pen
  10. Chanel Rouge Coco in Patchouli (here)
  11. Lipglosses, including Nars Angelica (here), Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Confidence (here) and Emoi (here)
  12. Edward Bess Soft Smoke eyeshadow trio (here)
  13. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation in B10 (here)
  14. Chanel Ombre Essential eyeshadow in Taupe Grise (reviewed here)
  15. Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners in Chocolate Shimmer and Black Ink
  16. Guerlain Illuminating and Mattifying Compact Powder (reviewed here)
  17. Cle de Peau concealer
  18. Nars Multiples in Angelica (reviewed here) and South Beach
  19. Guerlain Le 2 Volume Mascara (not pictured) (reviewed here)

I can create several different looks, and sometimes even use up products completely.  It’s  nice to pare down to a finite set of beauty products. I have to remind myself that my original makeup bag, not that long ago, was much smaller and every item was used almost every day.  This helps me get some perspective-you really don’t need very much to get a lot of very versatile looks.
