Very soon I am off to Spain for a relaxing holiday, something I am really looking forward to. This year has been very stressful and I am grateful to be given the opportunity to spend some time relaxing in the sun! Because of this I thought I would take the opportunity to show you what is in my Travel Make Up Bag.
I have not been wearing too much make up recently and because of the warmer weather I don’t like to have so much coverage. Therefore, I feel the make up I have included reflects this.
The make up bag itself is from Primark, it is very cute with the lolly pops and the pastel colours making it perfect for summer! It’s a very boxy shape making it the perfect size for my make up and also all my brushes. I have been in the need for a new make up bag since the zip broke on my old one, I love Primark make up bags as they are great quality and so cheap!
The main product that I have in my make up bag is the Urban Decay On the Run Palette, this palette is perfect for travelling as it has a lot of your basic products in one place making it a lot easier than taking a lot of different products which could take up a lot of room!
Inside the Urban Decay palette there are a selection of eyeshadows that are great for day and evening looks. It also contains a bronzer, blusher and highlighter. There are also slots that contained a few products when I bought the palette I have kept the lipgloss inside which is an amazing colour. But I have swapped out two of these for my own products. The first is the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, which I absolutely love. It is so affordable and the coverage is amazing. The second thing I have put in the palette is a L’Oreal lip liner that I love to match with the Urban Decay Lipgloss, this combination has been my go to lip duo recently!
I am also taking the Bourjois CC Cream. I absolutely love this product, it honestly feels like I am not wearing any make up when I apply I to my, it is very light but gives a good amount of coverage. I like to apply it with my fingers as I feel this gives the best results! It makes my face feel like it’s glowing but not oily!
I will also be taking my MAC Pro Longwear concealer for the evenings when I want slightly more coverage to my face. I have also packed the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot powder, which is perfect for reducing shine and keeping my make up in place in the hot weather.
For my eyebrows I use the Benefit Brow Zings, I love this stuff as it defines my brows perfectly and is also the correct colour! For my eyelashes I will be taking two different mascaras, the first being the Benefit Roller Lash and also the Maybelline Colossal mascara in waterproof I have tried this before and it’s amazing! It lengthens and separates the lashes and doesn’t run when water is applied.
Finally for lip products I will be taking three different MAC Lipsticks the first being Velvet Teddy, Plumful and Speed Diall. I will also be talking chapstick with SPF so my lips do not burn!
For tools and brushes I will be taking my beauty blender and then a number of brushes from Real Techniques and one MAC eyeshadow brush. I will also be taking my eyelash curlers by Benefit, I love these they are amazing at really curling and defining my lashes.
That’s everything! It may seem like a lot but I like to be well prepared when I go on holiday. (Even if I end up using none of it!)
