travel-friendly makeup routine??

Im wondering if anyone has a quicker and easier routine. Right now i use a moisturizer, concealer under my eyes/ breakouts, and powder foundation and blush. I wanted to try a tinted moisturizer but im not sure how that works with applying blush, or if it would actually be easier in the long-run. If anyone has input id appreciate it, as im not overly educated in this department. thanks

travel friendly or just help you get ready quickly? these are different categories

tinted moisturizer just takes the place of a foundation really. It's not really meant to skip your moisturizer (well unless you have oily skin and no dryness whatsoever) and it doesn't have much coverage as a foundation. You put on blush and everything like normal but you don't have to. It's all up to you. Since it doesn't give as much coverage, it looks completely natural so a blush is not necessary unlike sometimes with heavier coverage foundations that make you look lifeless or too flat looking I guess, blush/bronzer is necessary to make you look alive If you're skipping moisturizer and just using the TM's then yes this can help you get ready faster, but if you don't skip moisturizer, it doesn't help speed up the process.

When I travel (I'm going to Vegas this July) I always bring my cheaper good stuff. Just in case my luggage gets lost or they decided not to let me take it on the plane (which I've had no problem with yet in my travels.. I've flown out of BUF, JFK, LAS, LAX, ROC soo).
I try to pack what I know I really love and need. I usually bring mascara, eye liner, bronzer, and some sort of grey eye shadow or shimmer. I figure anything else I can buy the $.99 wet and wild if I need it. I don't wear lipstick or gloss, so I don't need that. If you have to wear foundation, sometimes (I know MAC & Chanel have done this for me) they'll give you a sample tube, packet, or jar for your trip.
I also bring facial samples I've received through the months. I buy the correct tube sizes for travel and add in my toner and retin A Micro. I generally just bring water for a face wash, unless my skin is being crappy. I also bring dove cleansing clothes or waterless wipes. Most of my trips are usually for roller derby so I need something to wipe my face clean if a sink isn't available, especially in Vegas.

I do that same thing with my shampoo & Conditioner (I buy the tubes and usually some kind of small spray bottle for my leave in).

Thats just what I bring,

Unfortunately, they do say "liquids and gels" so that includes mascara, lip gloss, etc.

One thing I always try to do is minimize the brushes I bring. I use gel blush (Smashbox O-Glow) when I travel. Your routine does not seem like that much though.
