Currently I am using the Thirty-One Deluxe Beauty Bag which is currently a Hostess Exclusive. I think with a $200 party you can purchase this for $25. When I purchased this bag it was only available in 2 prints. It holds a lot of stuff and I like that it has a larger pocket to hold brushes and hair tools.
Only tried and true come with me on vacations. I try to pack light... ;) The 3 pockets at the top are very small and snug but work well so that you only have space for a couple small items which are visible and easily accessible. So I have some NIVEA lotion for hands, body and face if I need it. I also packed my Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, Rose Salve, Kiehl's Midnight Recovery and Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle Butter.
The larges pocket at the bottom of the bag has a clear zip pocket in the front perfect for makeup brushes, tweezers, nail file etc...
(My lovely camera or computer or both have decided not to cooperate and import photos at the moment so I will describe the rest of what I packed! Will update later.)
Inside this pocket also has expandable holders which are good for larger bottles of lotion, hair brushes etc. I packed my Evian facial spray, Bath and Body Works aromatherapy sleep body cream in lavender and chamomile, ceramic round brush, and L'OREAL Miracle Blur. I also packed the 2 mesh pockets on either side. Left side contains deodorant (not my favorite, I ran out of Donna Karan Cashmere mist), hand sanitizer, Bumble and bumble Bb Straight Blow Dry, Guerlain L'OR, Clinique Skin Supplies for men face scrub (works for ladies too!) and hand sanitizer. Right pocket has Supergoop! SPF 30 City Sunscreen Serum (which I am obsessed with), L'OREAL Magic LUMI Primer, Clinique all about eyes serum, Nuance Smoothing Anti-Aging Eye Cream and Urban Decay b6 spray.
The outside pockets so far have a travel size L'OREAL EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner, Kiehl's Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash and seventh generation boosts clearing with tea tree skin serum. and I have room to add more if I see something last minute.
Now for makeup:
I really wanted to pack minimal and use one makeup bag. This blue and white strips bag is from a Hautelook sample bag which they offer a couple times a year. It's a really nice, lined bag and it has held up impressively.
