What's In My Travel Makeup Bag? Come Have A Look

This time last week we were away in Cork for our staycation, so I thought I would share with you what I usually like to bring with me.


The makeup bag was a Christmas present and I think it's is the one and only makeup bag I have used more than 2 months, it is just the perfect size for what I like to carry with me.



Eyes:

1. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Very rare that I would go without an eyeshadow primer and this is the one I reach for time and time again.

2. Rimmel Wonder'Full Mascara
I really like this mascara, it just glides on effortlessly because of the Argan Oil. My eyelashes don't feel like they are caked in mascara and even if I build it up it still doesn't feel clumpy. I've been using this for about 3 weeks and already have bought a back up because I love it that much.

3. Wet N' Wild Trio Eyeshadow in "Sweet As Candy"
I haven't tried much from this brand but this particular trio palette that I got is my go to everyday eyeshadow that I like to sandwich onto my eyelids. It has great pigmentation and lasts all day with my primer potion.

4. Benefit Gimme Brows Light/Medium
My eyebrows need taming and my right eyebrow in particular need some filling sooooooo Gimme Brows is to the rescue. This is one of the best products I have ever used from Benefit and the Gimme Brows is now my Holy Grail eyebrow product.


Face:

5. Benefit PoreFessional Primer
This has been my go to primer since it launched back in 2010 (I think I have the year right). A little goes a long way and helps reduce the appearance of the pores I have around my nose and chin. I pat it on as I think it give a better application rather than smoothing/rubbing across the face.

6. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow
I'm not a huge fan of this foundation on me. It really isn't suiting my skin but it was the only one that I could get close enough to my skin colouring. I don't think this is one I would buy again for me personally especially as it barely lasts a couple of hours.

7. Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
Great concealer for my under eyes and blends like a dream, I don't use this on spots or blemishes due to its highlighting properties though.

*8. Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Powder
I recently did a review on this which you can see here. This has been going everywhere with me lately and a day hasn't passed where I haven't used it either. One of my favourite powders that leaves a lovely finish on my skin.

9. MAC Pro Longwear Blush "Stay Pretty"
Love, love, love this blush need I say more.....I did and you can see my review here


Lips:

10. Revlon Lip Butter "Berry Smoothie"
I absolutely love these lip butters from Revlon and were a great introduction to lippie for me earlier this year. I particular like the shade Berry Smoothie and they glide on like a dream. This also make my lips feel moisturised and makes my teeth look whiter (strange but true).

*11. Tahitian Noni Lip Balm (SPF 15) Original 
When I'm travelling I need products that are going to moisturise, be handy to carry and this little wonder ticks those boxes. I'm not a huge fan a balms I have 1 or 2 that I will always go for, but I find that most leave a horrible taste in my mouth (yuck!). This however tastes lovely and leaves my lips in great condition.

*12. Beautycycle Light Up Lip Gloss "Passion"
I was so skeptical when I got this originally thinking it was a bit gimmicky with the light and everything, but the light has come in handy and I love that there is a little mirror on the side. The shade itself I have wearing most of the Summer and will bring me straight through Autumn and Winter too. It has a lovely minty tingly feel to it and seems to disguise the lines in my lips, so my lips look fuller and younger!

So what do you think? Do I bring to much for 5 days away or would you have brought more? Let me know in the comment section below x

  6. I think you have good taste in cosmetics! I ADORE Porefessional. It really really reduces the pores on my nose especially and the Urban Decay primer is un-REAL! I can't believe how practical your make-up bag is. I end up bringing WAY too much with me all the time and only using half! Great post.
