Nails, Toes and Travel Makeup for Cosmoprof!

 Disclaimer: Previous press samples and purchased products – see below for more details

I always stress about three things when I go to Cosmoprof – my nails, toes, and what makeup to bring.

Well, this is what I did for my toes:

I’m obsessed with blue. That’s China Glaze Sunday Funday with a big toe accent of Seche Collage Overlay.

For my nails, I went indie, since I expected dinner with a lot of lovely indie makers and e-tailers Saturday night:

This is one of my favorite polishes in 2013 – Ninja Polish Mystic Glacier. And I did an accent nail with Sally Hansen Razzleberry, and added a silver striper for added accent. Not liking how the striper shows up over the texture, but it doesn’t look bad when you look at it in passing LOL! I LOVE MYSTIC GLACIER!

I packed extra lacquer, because I fully expect to redo my mani every night. Oh yes. I’m cray cray like that!

So here’s my travel makeup, minus the mascaras and liquid eyeliners and foundations that are already packed in my suitcase, or in my little liquids bag for the airport! All of it fits in those two makeup bags you see there.

I’ll break it down. Here’s eye palettes and stuff:

I don’t know what I’m thinking I’ll need all these eye palettes and eyeliners for, but it’s good to have options, right?! Lots of NYX, Urban Decay, Stila liners…Make Up For Ever Star Powders (obsessed)…Kryolan palettes, Coastal Scents palette…Jesse’s Girl Masquerade palette and a random Sugarpill palette!

Of course I need my lippies:

Lots of lipsticks this year, only a couple lip glosses in my little liquids bag for the airport. LOVE the bright pink lippies and I did make sure to pack MAC Russian Red, too! I’ve got some NYX, Jesse’s Girl, Milani, MAC, Evil Shades and Inglot pans in the Z-Palette. I wanted to pack some striking and also subtle lippie options, depending on how the mood strikes me with my eye makeup.

I mean, if I wasn’t crazy packing makeup like this who would I be? I’m a beauty blogger, this is what I do, right?! LOL

The face:

My tools and my face – I generally use pink or peach blushes, so I figured I’d keep it simple. Got an IT Cosmetics brow pencil and NYX Wonder Pencil, as well as my Jane Iredale Powder-Me Dry Sunscreen. Gotta keep the skin fresh in the desert heat!

Also, in my liquids bag I think I have three foundations/BB’s, and I packed Maybelline’s BB in my suitcase toiletry bag.

I also packed some nail art supplies that you can see in the larger pic.

As I took the pics for this post, Mike asked me, “How many lbs. of makeup do you think you’re bringing?” I told him, “This is it.” He said, “WOW.” Other than that, I rendered him pretty speechless. He thought I was bringing more. I resisted the urge to say, “Hmm. Maybe I SHOULD pack more.” LOL!

What do you think? Overpacked or just right for a beauty lover?! I’ll try to compile my looks each day and share later this week or next!
