Thanksgiving Makeup Capsule: what's in my makeup bag for the holiday weekend

Affiliate Links

I've tried creating a small makeup "capsule collection" to take with me on trips before, and I find that it works so much better than just throwing random newly purchased products and special occasion items in my makeup bag! The idea of a capsule collection is that everything is coordinated, so any product can be paired with any other one to create a look.

I will be away from home for 4 days for the Thanksgiving weekend, so I shopped my makeup stash to put together this capsule collection. I found myself attracted to rosy hues and to everything Lancôme - the first one is rather unusual while the latter shouldn't surprise you if you follow my blog! Do you want to see what I packed in my makeup bag? Just keep reading!

Chanel Dior Guerlain Lancome Diptyque Atelier Cologne Clarins YSL makeup beauty lipstick eyeshadow palette candles

So it looks like fall disappeared. It's not a thing anymore. And Thanksgiving? I'm half expecting it to be cancelled next year and replaced by a reindeer festival or Santa's elves appreciation day. When I first moved to the US I was told that Christmas decorations go up the day after Thanksgiving. Yeah well now it's the day after Halloween. Can we enjoy one day at a time and not shop for holiday stuff in August, please? When I first thought about my Holiday Gift Guide this year I found some great beauty items I wanted to include, but they were all sold out by the end of September. Sigh. Not to worry, I did some deep digging around the web and at the store for you and found some really cool stuff from my favorite French Beauty brands. If you're looking for ideas to bring joy to a loved one, here you go!

Sephora VIB Sale Haul!

Affiliate links

VIB Sale, Fall Sale, BI Sale, call it what you want, the annual November sale at Sephora always sends the beauty community into a shopping frenzy and this year I was not spared by the buying fever! I had just made Rouge, the upper level of Sephora's rewards program, a few weeks before the sale so I enjoyed 2 weekends of intense shopping with a 20% off discount. I did a video unboxing of the loot from my 1st weekend of shopping on Instagram, but I wanted to have everything from round 2 as well before doing this haul post.
