What's In My Travel Makeup Bag?

I'm off on holiday tomorrow and have just finished deciding what makeup to take and thought I'd show you!


Primer - Benefit's Porefessional (sample size)
Foundations - Light coverage; L'oreal True Match in Rose Ivory, Medium/Heavy Coverage; Revlon Colourstay in Buff
Concealer - Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair
Powder - Max Factor Translucent Powder
Blush/Bronzer/Highlight - Estee Lauder Blush/Bronzer/Highlight Trio*
Brushes - Contour/blush brush, powder brush and sponges for foundation application

I'm taking two foundations as I want to be able to wear a good coverage foundation in the evening but also have a light one for day wear if needed.


Primer - Maybelline Coverstick Concealer in Ivory
Eye-shadow - MUA Heaven and Earth Palette
Brows - Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel
Eye-liners - Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Black, Black Kohl Pencil eye-liner (came with a set from Boots)
Mascara - L'oreal Volume Million Lashes in Extra Black
Brushes/Tools - Eye Shadow brush, Sharpener, Eye liner brush (came with gel liner)


Lip Balm - Vitamin E SPF 15 Lip Balm by The Body Shop
Lipsticks - (l-r) Revlon Lip Butter in Cotton Candy, L'oreal Caresse Lipsticks in Dating Coral and Tempting Lilac, Estee Lauder Pure Colour Lipstick in Crystal Baby

Choosing which lipsticks to take was definitely the hardest! Recently I haven't been into lip glosses, so I don't plan on taking any. I'm also in two minds about taking a lip-liner but if I do, it would be the Revlon Colorstay Lip-liner in Pink :)

If I don't get round to posting tomorrow then I'm sorry!! I'm back July 11th so expect regular posting after that (and maybe even some holiday snaps!) :)

Thanks for reading!
