Travel Makeup Bag




You may (or maybe you aren't) wondering where I have been for past week. But I promise I will be back to my usual posting schedule, it's because last week I was on a school trip in Wales for a week. But now I am back home I am back with a new post, which is a look into my Travel Makeup Bag.

I probably didn't need to bring so much makeup, but I mainly just bought the necessities for my everyday makeup routine (concealer, powder, eyebrows and mascara.) So let's start with brushes, I bought with me the Real Techniques Buffing Brush and Multi-Tasking Brush. I used the Buffing Brush to blend in my concealer and the concealer I bought was the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer as it is such an everyday under-the-eye concealer. For powder, I chose the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. This powder is a new use of mine and I can definitely say it is amazing. I also bought with me the Benefit Porefessional primer because it is amazing and helps to cover up my pores.

Now onto the eye products. I did actually bring 2 mascaras purely because I had a mini mascara and I just really wanted to bring it; but I also wanted to bring my favourite mascara which is the L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes. I have talked about this mascara sooo much here on my blog so I shan't go on any more. But all I have to say is it is incredible. Also in my makeup bag is a mini of the Benefit Bad Gal Mascara, this mascara isn't really that amazing and a bit of a let down especially from Benefit. But its not too bad, but there are better mascaras out there. Sometimes I often wear brown eye-liner lightly on my lower lashes to define them a bit, so the Rimmel Eye Pencil in Sable is also in my travel bag. But how can I forget eyebrows? My only eyebrow product, but it is amazing, is the Rimmel Brow Pencil. 

Lastly for lips, I just have a basic yet trustworthy Vaseline, how could I live without my Vaseline? And I also bought with me one of the Baby Lips in Pink Lolita.

So I believe that is everything that I bought along with me when I went travelling. I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you for reading!

What are your travel essentials?

  1. I agree that Bad Gal isn't that great, especially for the price, it doesn't really do anything amazing for my lashes.

    My travel essentials definitely include a good setting powder so that my make up looks reasonably ok towards the end of the day, currently that's my MAC Mineralise Skinfinish but the Rimmel one is equally as good.

  8. Oooh loving all these items - I will always take away moisturiser and mascara as I want my skin to always be hydrated and mascara is an easy way to look decent!

    If I'm packing for a long holiday then things get a little hectic as I take away too many things 'just in case I need this colour' hahaha!

    Your photos are super-pretty though! Love it :)

  9. L'Oreal's Volume Million Lashes So Couture mascara is one of my all-time favourite products EVER. You have to give their False Lash Superstar one a try too as it's amazing ;) X

  10. I also found the L'Oreal Mascara much more effective than the Benefit one, even though I heard so many great reviews about it!

    Have an awesome day!

  12. hi! when I travel I like to have products that multitask like a blush stain for lips and cheeks, or a pretty bronzer that goes pretty as an eyeshadow… but I still end up always packing more then I should :P great blog!
