What's in my travel make up bag?
I'm a serial over-packer & it was getting to a stage where it was just becoming ridiculous. I used to be that person who took a suitcase crammed full of stuff just for a few days away but I'm determined to not be that person anymore!
Base wise I think I keep it very simple. I do love my healthy mix foundation but I am on the lookout for something different. If any of you have tried Illamasqua's light liquid foundation please let me know, I think that might be my next foundation purchase. Benefit concealers are my current favourites and I always like to set my make up with a light dusting of translucent powder.
Considering blush is my absolute make up love, I think I've done well narrowing it down to just three to take away with me. Hippy Shake from Dainty Doll looks beautiful lightly dusted over any pink blush, Illamasqua Promise cream blush is still my absolute favourite & The Body Shop cool dusk trio is just too pretty not to love!
Having used my Urban Decay Naked Palette every single day over the past couple of weeks I'm really enjoying just doing a simple eye liner look at the moment. It took me a little while to get used to the Eyes Lips Face cream liner but now I absolutely love it but I do have to prime my eyes first to ensure it'll last a decent amount of time. I'm not a huge brow person but I do like to keep them looking as tidy as possible when the rest of my make up is quite simple.
I've kept it super simple with my lip products too. I've stuck to lipsticks that I know won't be at all drying and are just easy to wear, no faffing around here! In all honesty I'll probably be sticking to just lip balms because it's so cold here at the moment.
Eyes Lips Face brushes are among my favourites because they're such good quality and so inexpensive. I've decided to bring 2 powder brushes; one for foundation & one for blush, a complexion brush for loose powder and a small angled brush for cream eyeliner.
I think I kept it pretty basic and I wouldn't say I went too overboard! What do you think? What would you take on a short trip away?
