What’s in my Travel Makeup Bag

Last weekend I travelled over to Dudley with my family, for two days of shopping at Merry Hill.
I packed sensibly, by applying the makeup and then putting it into the bag. That way I knew I’d use everything; which actually worked. This is What’s in my Travel Makeup Bag.


I have recently started to put moisturiser under my foundation. As I have really dry skin, so it helps to keep my skin moisturised. I use the Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser.
Over this I used Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in the shade 51, as I love the yellow toning. I used to love this a while ago, and have definitely gotten back into it now.
Next is concealer, I used the Soap and Glory Kick Ass concealer, as I love how it has two shades to it and the setting powder; this works really well on those under eye circles. I included this in my Soap and Glory brand focus.

To set all of this in place I used the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in the shade 001, I put this all over just to achieve a matte finish and to ensure that the makeup lasted longer.


For my eyes I took the Naked 1 palette, as this is definitely my favourite out of the two that I have tried. I love how darker looks can be created, but so can lighter looks that are perfect for during the day. If I had to pick a favourite it would definitely be side-car.
I would then apply the Supercat eyeliner by Soap and Gory, as this is by far the best that I have tried. I would then use the Collection Extreme Coloured Lengthening Mascara in Black for my bottom lashes, and the Maybelline Lash Sensation for the top lashes.
That is everything that I took in the makeup bag, I did take a lot of lip products, but I won’t go into that, as I took way too many. I also had brushes in a separate bag so they didn’t get squashed.
What is your essential for a makeup travel bag?

    I really want that Urban Decay palette! Everything I have tried of theirs has been amazing (I use the Naked Basics palette every day), so I'm sure it is fantastic as well.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    I’m trying to get ideas for my travel makeup bag at the moment. I want to be minimal but have everything I need. It’s really hard! I’ve considered taking my Naked palette with me, but I’d need to take a matte brow bone highlight shade too, which is putting me off – hence the research! The Soap & Glory SuperCat Liner and the Maybelline Lash Sensational will definitely be coming with me, they’re fab! Xx
