Beauty: Inside My Travel Make Up Bag

Monday, August 22, 2016

I never used to carry around a travel makeup bag with me in my handbag but in the past few months I’ve started to carry around some of my favourite makeup products to touch up my make up on the go. I’ve seen a few ‘what I carry on in my makeup bag’ posts and videos and I thought I would do a more updated version as it’s what makeup I carry everyday in my makeup bag.

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue in Natural 05 - £27
Every minimal make-up look (or make up emergency) needs this product from Bare Minerals in their lives. Complexion rescue is more like a tinted bb cream/moisturiser but with a medium coverage. It makes my skin look so dewy and leaves it feeling super hydrated. I love using this when my foundation needs a top up on the go or for a minimal make-up day.

This is the product that I like to call the miracle brow product. No matter how busy I am, what I’m up to or whether I’m doing make up on the go, this product sorts me out. I absolutely love the brow products by Benefit but they are a little bit out of my price range and so this brow artist from L’Oreal does the same thing as the Benefit Gimme Brow at a fraction of the price.

This cream contour stick from Maybelline I feel is massively underrated in the beauty blogging world.  I absolutely LOVE using this and it works so well and gives my face a ‘natural’ contoured look. I find this stick works best when using a beauty blender to blend it all in.

If you're a fan of the Real Techniques Complexion Sponge, you'll love this new launch from Real Techniques. I really love using this to blend in concealer and even blend eye shadow when I’m doing my make up. I also love using this sponge to add concealer under my brows to make them look sharper. The only downside I’d say to these brushes is that they’ll be quite easy to loose!  I’ve also done a full blog post on the new Real Techniques launches which you can check out here.
L'Oreal False Lash Sculpt Mascara - £9.99
I never thought I’d love using this mascara just as much as I love using the Urban Decay Subversion MascaraI absolutely adore this mascara from L’Oreal and I’ve never really been a fan of the mascaras from L’Oreal I’ve tried in the past. This mascara has a really unusual shaped wand and it leaves my lashes looking full and defined and like I’ve got a pair of false lashes on (which is a total winner for me!) If you’re looking for a new mascara to try, I would 100% recommend picking this up next time you’re in Boots/Superdrug.

This brush has slowly become one of my favourite make-up brushes to use. I needed a highlighting brush that really picked up product and helped blend in my highlight well. This brush was an absolute lifesaver, it is also great to use with powder or bronzer too.

The Mary Lou Manizer from theBalm is possibly the best highlighter you’ll ever buy. I’ve had this in my life for about a year now and I use it most days. I’ve read a lot online that it’s a dupe for the Becca Champagne Pop Highlighter (but I’m yet to try that out!) If you’re in the market for a new highlighter and a good highlighter you won’t regret picking this up. 

This concealer is the absolute dream. I can’t get over how good this concealer is! It covers any sign of redness, dark circles or any spots you need covering. This is the only concealer I’ve used which doesn’t crease too. I love this concealer so much that I dedicated a whole blog post to it (which you can read here).
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow - £4.99
If you love a brown eye shadow (like me) this creamy eye shadow will become your new best friend. I love using this when I’m doing my make up in a rush and this cream eye shadow is easy to blend and lasts on my eyes all day.

I’ve come to the conclusion that this is one of my favourite lipsticks (and that’s a bold statement as I really like lipsticks) this shade from Urban Decay is limited edition and exclusive to Selfridges and it’s an absolute dream. It’s super moisturising and pigmented and stays on my lips for a really long time.

Lastly, is my favourite lip liner at the moment which is from Urban Decay. 1993 is a shade that’s been in Urban Decay’s lip section for such a long time but it’s always out of stock when I’ve tried to get my hands on it. It’s a gorgeous shade of nude and it’s my ‘my lips but better shade’.

Love this post! I am going away next month and always tend to over pack when it comes to makeup. I also love the look of the 1993 lip liner. I love UD but haven't tried their lip liners yet xx
