Makeup I Brought With Me to the Emmys

Published in: Just For Fun

I figure that it’s better to be over-prepared than underprepared…hence the three blushes and eight million brown eyeshadows in this pic.

How I stored it all…

I swear, at least half the mass of my suitcase is due to makeup, LOL!

In other news…

My trip here to LA and the Emmys show tonight (I’ll try to keep posting through the show, but mostly on Instagram because it’s easier to sneak using my phone) was sponsored by Dove. They invited a group of beauty and fashion bloggers and other media representatives.

First, a lovely breakfast this morning, where I learned about Dove’s new line o’ body washes (launching today, and you can get a free sample, BTW) and saw these adorable little omelets shaped like doves…

When the doves scramble...

The new body washes build into a nice, sudsy lather. They’re also very moisturizing, which I thoroughly appreciated last night during my own personal #oneshowerchallenge…which is also a new Dove social media campaign. (Can you get softer, smoother skin after just one shower? Dove says you can with their new body washes.)

Take the Dove One Shower Challenge

After breakfast I headed to something called the Dove Bling Bar, set up here in the hotel, and picked this cute cuff to wear with my…PINK DRESS!

Yes, I decided on the pink one. ๐Ÿ™‚

Too Wonder Woman-y?

Um…is it weird that I like this cuff because it’s kind of Wonder Woman-y?

Now I’m just getting my makeup and my hair did for the show…

Red carpet prep, phase uno. Getting my hair done w/ @jessicajohnston_mua. On my lips, that’s Guerlain Gloss D’Enfer in 402.

    I just came back from a road trip to Virginia so I can relate to this lol. I packed so much stuff! I need to invest in a makeup bag like your green one. That will definitely come in handy for long trips! It looks like it holds so much stuff and it’s super organized
