So I’ve just been for a weekend away to Derby for my cousins 40th birthday party and I thought I’d share with you what I take in my make up bag for short breaks.
I use a make up bag from Avon at the moment, which is amazing as it has 2 large sections and a built in holder for brushes. I tend to only take my essential make up brushes with me which include my foundation brush, powder and bronzer brush, blusher brush, a fan shaped brush which is amazing for highlight and 2 eyeshadow brushes. They fit really well in this make up case.
So including the brushes I mentioned before I try to take as few products as possible for ease of travelling, so having handy compacts like this Sleek Contour Kit make a big difference as you’ve got 3 products all in one. Obviously I take foundation and my favourite is from Bourjois, concealer and a setting powder. I am currently trying this new Revlon Photo Ready powder which so far is amazing!
One product that wouldn’t be a necessity for most would be a setting spray but I wouldn’t be able to do my make up without one! This particular one from Avon really works, I spray it on before I apply my foundation and after I’ve finished everything and it not only gives a lovely glow but sets my make up into place for hours on end.
These are the basics I take for my eye make up; this Makeup Revolution palette is perfect again because it has so many colours and shades that you can create a lot of eye looks with only one product! I always pack my Maybelline Masterbrow palette and Mascara of course. A black eye liner I think is very important for evenings if you want to amp up your existing daytime look, this one from Soap and Glory is great if you get watery eyes like me as it doesn’t budge!
If you’ve seen one of my recent posts, you’ll know that I have fallen in love with the Lancome Juicy Shaker! This is the perfect size for travel and as it’s so moisturising it’s perfect for keeping your lips in good condition while you’re away. I also tend to take my favourite nude lip gloss from NYX as it’s such a gorgeous colour which goes with every outfit!
So that’s what make up I take with me when I travel; are there any other essentials you think I should have? What can’t you leave home without?
