What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?


Is anyone else getting ready to go on holiday soon? I’m going in just under two weeks and I’m getting super excited! So today I want to share what is going to be coming with me on holiday(I will probably change my mind a bunch of times before I finally decide!) . I’m going to London and I think I will probably wear more makeup than I would if I was going to Spain or somewhere, that is always really hot. So here’s my travel makeup bag…



I don’t wear foundation everyday, but I do like to wear some foundation when I’m going out for dinner, or if my skin is not having the best day. The Mac Face&Body foundation is my favourite light weight, skin like base that still lets my freckles shine. It just gives your skin a healthy glow that I crave when I’m on holiday (or let’s be honest everyday) I like to pack a concealer that’s a great multi-tasker, Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer is an old favourite that I know I can rely on. Light weight for under the eyes and has amazing pigmentation for covering blemishes.

Bronzer,blush and highlight 

When I’m on holiday I don’t bother about contour as much, I’m usually rushing out the door trying to see new things. So one easy palette is perfect, Urban Decay’s Flushed palette in NATIVE is also a trust worthy old favourite. The bronzer is very glowy and makes your skin looked sun-kissed, the blush is a Barbie pink and when used lightly looks very natural and pretty, the highlighter is super pigmented and will make you glow!


An important part of makeup, if not the most important is Brows. Brows give your face structure and have the power to change your face shape(I never thought my eyebrows would hold so much power!). So I have to bring my Benefit Ka-Brow! Creamy, pigmented and has insane staying power, perfect for being out all day on holiday .


During the day Especially on holiday I always tend to skip eyeshadow, but at night or if I have that bit extra time, I like to add a touch of sparkle with eyeshadow. If I’m in a hurry The Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in the shade CHAMPAGNE DIAMONDS is fast, sparkly and won’t move all day. If I have the time the Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess palette is my favourite, for a simple daytime smoky eye it’s always the one I go for. The size of the palette is also perfect for travel. Mascara, the one i take with me is always just the one that I have been using near the time I go on holiday, Maybelline Falsies Push-up Angle mascara has been my go-to at the moment. It gives amazing curl and volume without clumps.


I love to wear bright lip shades in the summer, Jeffree Star Rose Matter Velour Liquid lip is a great soft, bright pink/coral that is very wearable and lasts for hours on the lips. It adds a nice summer shade to my very neutral wardrobe.

Are you going anywhere on holiday this summer?
