    Travel Makeup & What I’m Doing In LA

    I’m leaving for Los Angeles tomorrow and I’m super excited! I’m going to visit a friend who has lived out there for a few years now. I already shared what I’m packing for outfits and what’s on my wish list of things to do while there – read about all that here. Today, it’s all about what’s in my travel makeup bag.

    My Favorite Eye Shadow Palettes

    My top three eye shadow palettes in my collection come down to their quality and versatility. For me the two biggest factors in finding a perfect palette is if I can make a look out of it and if I’m able to travel with it. I’ve traveled with all of these palettes in the past year and they’re easy to work with when in morning when I’m getting ready for work.

I enjoy having a variety of eye shadow textures in my palettes including a few good mattes for…
