What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

What's In My Travel Makeup BagHi everyone, hope you had a lovely weekend! Mum and I left on Thursday morning to go away for a few days as part of a late birthday present and I haven’t had time to read and catch up with everyone’s posts. I apologise for not being as active comment-wise as I usually am.

Getting away and having a break is something I rarely do and it was nice to not worry about where I’d end up or having to be on a time schedule. I thought carefully about my makeup and which products I wanted to take. I didn’t want to take more than I needed and end up not using them. I packed most of my staple products as I know they’re products I love and use a lot.

Face TitleTravel Makeup - Face

1. Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser: I have spoken many times about how I’ve used Simple moisturiser for years. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right?

2. Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation in 101 Ivory Beige: I have had this foundation for nearly a month now and I love it! It doesn’t have a pump but a little nib the product comes out of. So far I haven’t had any spills and it doesn’t get messy. I also thought plastic would be easier to travel with than a glass bottle.

3. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15 Fair: This concealer works so well with the Max Factor foundation and I really only need the tiniest bit for redness and spots. The moisturiser and foundation does most of the work and this concealer enhances that.

4. Dainty Doll Cream Blush 003 Billion Dollar Babies: This blush literally arrived the day before I left. I knew I wanted to take it and try it out and my first impressions are all good. This is the first cream blush I’ve tried and it helps add an extra bit of dewiness to my cheeks. This blush is described as a nude/bronze shade but doesn’t make the cheeks look muddy. The shade is very neutral and natural.

5. The Body Shop Honey Bronzer 01 Light Matte: I took bronzer in case I wanted to wear it or my skin was looking a little lacklustre. I didn’t actually end up wearing it any of the days I was away but it was there if I needed it.

Eyes TitleTravel Makeup - Eyes1. Maybelline ‘The Nudes’: This eyeshadow palette is my favourite to use and is very versatile! You can create simple looks to go with a bold lip or bold eyes to go with a nude lip. There’s a mix of shimmer and matte shades and they all work so well with each other.

2. Rimmel Supercurler Mascara: This mascara is very similar to my other favourite from Rimmel – ScandalEyes Lycra Flex. I took this for the simple fact my other Rimmel is very close to empty and I didn’t want to run out! This mascara holds a lovely curl, lasts all day and is easy to remove.

Lips TitleTravel Makeup - LipsLips are my favourite part of my makeup routine so I wanted to make sure I had options. I took four shades in total: two nudes and two bright, bold colours.

1. MAC – Blankety: I wore Blankety on day one as I went for a smokey, grey/silver eye (I didn’t use Maybelline’s ‘The Nudes’) and wanted to keep the rest of my face fresh and natural.

2. Revlon Lip Butter – Wild Watermelon: On day two, mum and I went to a casino and I wanted to make an impression so a bold lip was the way to go! I wore a monochrome outfit and the coral/red bought everything together.

3. BYS – Fuschia Surprise: Of course I had to take my favourite lipstick with me! I always love how this shade looks on me and I wear it with so many looks and outfits. On day three I teamed it with a black blouse and blue jeans.

4. MAC – Patisserie: I wore Patisserie on the last day away and teamed the lovely pinky tones with a gold, sparkly eye.

So, that’s everything I took with me! I hope you enjoyed seeing the products in my travel makeup bag! What’s in yours?

    Again, loving the Simple products! It’s funny I came across this post because I was just looking through travel options last night for a potential trip this spring. It’s fate! 🙂

    Your travel makeup bag is pretty reasonable! I pack pretty lightly. I typically only bring one eye shadow (no, not 1 palette, just ONE eye shadow). I try to pack products that multi-task, so I’ll pack a peachy blush normally that can also act as my transitional shade for the eyes if needed. Sometimes I’ll just pack a stick concealer and use that as my foundation. It all depends what type of trip it is. 🙂
