My Travel Makeup Bag

My Travel Makeup Bag
My Travel Makeup Bag
When it comes to travelling/overnight stays in hotels makeup is an essential to take with me. I am going to London for 3 days soon and I have um'd and ah'd at what makeup I should take that will come in handy and not take up a massive amount of space. So since my makeup is nicely organised in this cute bag I decided to share what's inside.

Dinosaur Makeup Bag ASOS £10.00 (here)

Even though I tried to condense it down this is what I am left with but who knows, maybe I will try the 5 makeup product challenge one day since I need serious help. I packed two foundations with me both Estee Lauder Double Wear and L'Oreal Infallible purely because I wanted to keep my DW for the evenings and the Infallible for daytime wear. Both foundations leave my skin with a matte finish and do not budge one bit which means less touch ups. I use Collection Concealer for my blemishes or any imperfections and the Maybelline Eye Eraser for under my eyes and even though I really wanted to bring just the one I couldn't separate them. To set my makeup I have my MAC MSF and the NYX Matte Setting Spray which is one of my favourite setting sprays!

For eyes I have my trustworthy Benefit They're Real Mascara which I have hyped on about so many times on my blog and for eyeshadow I am bringing the H&M Smoky Nude palette. I love how compact this palette is, it comes with all the shades every girl needs for both neutral and smoky looks and it takes up no room at all. For brows I am taking the S&G Brow Archery which is great for getting your brows filled in quickly. I like to call it my version of a Harry Potter wand.

For the more evening makeup I have decided to pack the Mary Kay Silver Illuminating Stick*. This gives my cheek bones some serious glow which I thought would go perfectly with my S&G Solar Powder as my contour. Again this is an easy palette to use and blends in so nicely. For blusher I am taking my Creme Puff Blush from Max Factor in the shade 'lovely pink' which is a lovely neutral shade of pink perfect for an everyday look. I am always last minute when it comes to lips but I will most likely be bringing a NYX Lip Cream and my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

What makeup item is a staple for you traveling??

  7. You sound like me when it comes to packing. I can never just narrow things down to one of each. I always have to bring two or more. I;m leaving for a trip soon so this will come in handy. Thanks for sharing!
