One of my favourite things to do is travel to new places! Earlier this week, I spent a few days in Italy, which I really enjoyed. And so I thought I would share with you what I packed in my travel makeup bag!
THE BASE PRODUCTS
Rimmel Lasting Finish 25Hr Nude Foundation in ‘Ivory’.
This has been my go-to foundation lately, so I couldn’t possibly leave this behind! It offers a medium-full coverage, feels comfortable on the skin and most importantly, it’s incredibly long-lasting. It also feels moisutrising – making it perfect for using after flying!
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in ‘Ivory’.
This is one of my favourite concealers for covering up any under-eye dark circles. It’s incredibly creamy and really brightens up the skin!
MAC Studio Fix Powder in ‘NW20’.
I bought this foundation at the beginning of summer, and I love it! It keeps all my makeup in place and helps it last a lot longer. It helps to mattify any shine and also provides some additional coverage.
Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder in ’51’.
I’ve been using this bronzer for a while now and find that it’s perfect for dusting over the high points of my face for a bit of a glow. Shade 51 is not too orange and is great for those with fair skin.
ELF Cosmetics Baked Blush in ‘Rich Rose’.
Another old favourite of mine, this baked blush from ELF acts both as a blush and as a highlight. I enjoy packing this whenever I travel as the packaging is so small and compact, so no space is wasted. Review here.
THE EYE PRODUCTS
Urban Decay Naked Palette.
I find it so hard to pick just one palette to pack when travelling! Although the Urban Decay Naked Palette is definitely not the most travel-friendly palette due to its size, I convinced myself that it has pretty much any eyeshadow shade I might possibly want to use #noregrets!
L’Oreal Superliner Black Lacquer Waterproof.
I recently spoke about how much I love this liquid eyeliner – and it’s definitely one I reach for when travelling. It’s easy to apply, very highly pigmented and although it’s not completely waterproof, it’s super long-lasting and looks just as great throughout the day as it does when it is first applied. Review here.
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara.
This mascara does it all – it defines, it lengthens and it volumises the lashes. And although the packaging is a bit bulky, I couldn’t resist packing this! Review here.
THE LIP PRODUCTS
MAC Lipstick in ‘Brave’.
My all-time favourite neutral lipstick shade, MAC Brave, could not be left behind! I find that it’s the perfect lipstick shade as it looks good with pretty much any makeup look, it goes on smoothly (even when you’ve got those dreaded post-flight dry lips!) and it lasts around 4-6 hours on the lips. See it in action here.
Topshop Sheer Lips in ‘Chuck’.
This is the more moisturising lipstick that I packed – a gorgeous, sheer berry lipstick from Topshop! Although this does not last as long on the lips as MAC Brave, it really helps to moisturise the lips – something that I always require after flying! Review here.
