When I go on short trips I tend to over pack compared to when I go on longer trips. One of the things that I tend to overvpack is makeup and I have to always have two or three makeup bags especially going to a city like Las Vegas. I recently discovered my Kusshi Makeup Bag that can fit all my makeup brushes without getting the rest of my bag messy and can fit all my essentials plus more. I have retired all my other makeup bags and have only used this one! It’s my favorite.
Vegas you need to pack a variety of makeup and products because you don’t know where your day or night will take you. For my 24 hours there I went to the pool, went to lunch, then to dinner, the casino and finished the night at a club. You also have to remember your recovery look for the next day.
What I love about my Kusshi bag is that it opens up really wide. You can find everything you are looking for without having to dig around or what I end up doing is just taking everything out so it’s a mess. There is also a separate case that buttons up inside the bag for your makeup brushes, you can put your lipglosses in there, mascara, pencils or whatever you want to keep more organized. Keeping your makeup brushes separate in your bag is so key because your bag won’t get all messy inside and it keeps the brushes clean. This bag is so genius, I’m obsessed. Also, the makeup brush holder has a button to keep it closed so if you wanted to pack a few essentials in that for like touch up makeup when you are going out you could carry just that. Living in LA it’s a neccessity to have your touch up makeup because we live in our cars and this is something that is slim enough to leave in your glove compartment or carry with you. I love the mesh side pockets on one side, I used that for my lipsticks and eye gel pot. On the other side is a zipper pocket where I had put some of my blotting papers in.
I packed everyone of my new brushes from Moda. Lashes are a must and I am loving the ones from Velour, they are easy to use and you don’t need to cut and measure these. They are already the perfect size. Sunscreen is a must in Vegas especially if you are laying out by the pool, I love the Hampton Sun one you can apply to your face and body, it won’t leave any white residue and feels really light on. My favorite lip treatment at the moment is PCA Skin’s Lip Peptide Therapy, it’s hydrating and brings back volume and fullness to my lips. I brought Covergirl’s new Vitalist Healthy Setting Powder, TruBlend It’s Lit Concealer and their Melting Pout Matte Liquid Lipstick in Ballerina. I love Covergirl’s new line, it’s fresh, my makeup looks flawless and I notice I don’t need to touch my makeup at the end of the night. It lasts all day. I also brought my liquid highlighter from Algenist, their Reveal Luminizing Drops make applying highlighter so easy. I brought it in Pearl but Champagne is my favorite out of the three but I lost when traveling so I’m using this one. I just started using my Moon Boost Lash Serum because I do wear strip lashes every day and when I rip them off at night, my lashes unfortunately come off with them. This serum has helped my lashes grow back fuller and stronger. It’s also all natural so that’s really amazing! I am obsessed with facial sprays and my favorite one right now is from OSEA, I carry it in my bag with me, it’s kind of big but worth it! I can’t live without my new Givenchy Lipstick Le Rouge Liquide it is their newest lipstick and I have it in a red called No 309 L’Interdit. I saw a few nude colors and soft pinks that I have to have. It’s a soft velvety finish that is matte but hydrating. It’s my new favorite lipstick and the packaging is so chic. Other things that I brought is my Rodial Bronzer, my brow pencil from Maybelline, Pat McGrath Lipstick, lip pencil from my Space Nk bag from Kevyn Aucoin, Facial spray from the Spa on Rodeo, and a few other things that aren’t pictured. As you can see that my Kusshi bag holds a lot of products, keeps them really organized and leaves room for more still.
I love that these bags are machine washable, and will never get dirty. I love everything about this bag, it’s my new everyday and travel bag. If you are tired of digging around in your makeup bag and looking for your products, you need this in your life.
