So I do want to mention a few things that I forgot to include in my video. First of all, the brushes I brought with me are the Makeup Show brushes that I mentioned in my June Hits & Misses. Since they had their own travel case, they weren't inside my travel cosmetics pouch.
Second, I did have a few more liquidy things that I had in an in-suitcase bag like my sunscreen, lotion, shampoo & conditioner, etc. For these, I took travel sized items or I depotted them into travel containers. Although you can take larger amounts than 3oz of liquid in checked luggage, it seriously helps for staying under the 50lbs luggage weight limit that most airlines have.

Third, I did keep my plastic quart bag separate from my cosmetics pouch but they both went into my carry-on bag. When you go through security you will need to have your clear quart ziplock bag out and in the security bin whereas the cosmetics pouch with non-liquids can stay in your carry-on.
Example items to put in the clear quart baggie:
- hand sanitizer
- contact lens solution
- liquid foundation/concealer
- contact lenses
- liquid eyeliner
- liquid eyeshadow/foundation primers
- eyelash glue
For me, when there was a question of if something was liquid or not, I went ahead and put it in the clear bag. Better to be safe than stopped, right? Plus, I actually had plenty of space left over in my clear quart bag.
I hope that was helpful for those of you who plan on travelling soon! I know that for me, packing took a lot longer than I thought it would so I'll definitely be better prepared for my next trip.
To wrap up, I want to share a little fun fact: I have yet to be scanned/patted at any airport thus far. All of my flight companions are never so lucky. It may be because I travel in leggings and a t-shirt so I don't have much to hide, but I like to think it's because of my undeniable charm when I wink at the security man/woman.
Just kidding, it's totally because I'm so intimidating they wouldn't dare ask.
Yeah, that's it.
