What's in my Travel Makeup Bag?

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 16:36
I have to be honest and say that I forgot about a post for today so in a rush I thought I'd share what I take in my travel makeup bag when I go away. This is fitting because today I'm going away to the coast for 4 nights and had to pack up my favourite bits to take with me. I always find it interesting to see what people take when they travel because it's almost an insight to their current favourite products. All products will be linked at the end of the post.

Firstly, I packed two foundations. I went for my Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream in Light Medium and MACs Studio Fix Fluid in NC20. The Studio Fix offers a high matter coverage and the BB cream is a lovely light dewy foundation. I like to chose two different coverages as well as two different shades incase I tan so that it still matches and I can get away with wearing NC20 when I'm tanned and not tanned.

Then I chose two concealers using the same concept as foundation- two different coverages and shades. I went for MACs pro-longwear in NC20 which has a high coverage and Maybellines Fit Me Concealer in Light.

I then chose a bronzer- Maybellines Fit Me Powder in Coconut and a blush, Tarte's Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed. I only take one bronzer and one blush because otherwise it takes space and all blushes and bronzers do the same thing really, just in different shades and these are my favourites. I didn't take a highlighter because I just use an eyeshadow if I want a glow. I also took my Translucent Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

As for eyes, I took my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, my MAC Painterly Paint Pot, my Benefit RSVP cream eyeshadow and MAC pro palette which I will do a post about soon, I just have 3 more spaces to fill first. I also took a brown and purple eyeliner as well as two mascaras- Maybellines The Rocket and Tarte's Lights, Camera, Splashes - both waterproof. I also took Soap & Glory's Brow Archery in Brownie Points.

I then packed MAC's Fix+ and as far as lips go, I just took Revlons Tutti Frutti, Maybellines Baby Lips, the cherry one and MAC's Modesty Lipstick.

As far as brushes go, I packed quite a few because I had space. I won't run through them all. I also won't go through my mini shampoos, cleansers and skincare things because it's probably a little boring but those are the main makeup items I'm taking with me.
