What’s in my travel Make up bag

Sunday, 13 July 2014

A few weeks ago I headed to Amsterdam for the week on a work trip. With my job I have to travel a few times a year, as well as traveling for pleasure (or so they ask at immigration...business or pleasure?!) so I’ve got packing the essentials down to a T, as well as the ability to pack a suitcase 1 hr before bed.

So I thought I would show you what I take in my make up case when I go away.

For a primer I took the Max Faxtor Facefinity, as well as my La Roche Posay lip balm
For foundation I took a selection - No7 Beautifully Matte for during the day, and Double Wear for the evening. As well as 2 NYX stay matte foundations that I use for highlighting and contouring.
Collection 2000 concealers in shade 1 and 4, where my concealers of choice for this trip (and most other days too)
Can’t go anywhere with my Chanel bronzer, and to top it of Collection powder.
To top it all off Urban Decay - de-slick setting spray.

Also just as I’d finished packing my case, I uploaded these photos to the computer for editing and noticed....I’d forgot to pack blusher! So thank you blogging world...I would of went away without blusher. Which was NARS orgasm and desire.

As an eyeshadow primer, I popped in my MAC paint point in painterly.
For eyebrows, I used MAC pencil in Spiked
For a liner I used the L’oreal super liner (this is my holy grail of eyeliners!)
I took two palettes with me, the Naked 3 and my own MAC neutrals.
And for my eyelashes I took with my the L’oreal Volume million lashes

I actually ended up taking more lip products with me after I took this picture, I popped in a few of my favourite Revlon Matte balms too. I also took Chanel - boy for a neutral day look, and two YSL rouge volupte for evenings.

What do you take in your make up bag when you travel?
