Hi everyone. I hope you are having a lovely, lazy Sunday :) 
We were house sitting/ dog sitting this weekend so I thought it will be a perfect time to do a "What's in my travel make-up bag" post. I took some essentials and favourites with me and here they are:

I love having mini versions of my favourite products, so when I got a cute little bottle of Lancome Teint Miracle in Harrods Glossybox I was very happy. It is perfect for traveling! I also got some minis with magazines (Benefit) and online(Lily Lolo).
-mini Benefit Porefessional
-mini Benefit That Gal Primer
-mini Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation
-Liz Earle Loose Powder
-Liz Earle concealer
-Collection 2000 concealer
-He-Shi bronzer
-mini Lily Lolo highlighter
-NARS orgasm blush
-Collection 200 Fix me up setting spray

I always have my current favourite lipstick with me. At the moment I am loving Vegas Volt from MAC. It is soooooooo beautiful! I can't get enough of it! :)
I try to take a minimal amount of products with me, so I usually go for a neutral eyeshadow palette, a brow kit, liner and mascara, to keep it simple. -Fashionista brow kit
 -Liz Earle mascara
-BOURJOIS liquid eye liner
-MUA heaven & earth palette

I always take my favourite brushes with me and I am loving Real Techniques!
My most used brushes are: buffing brush, powder brush, blush brush and contour brush.


  1. I love these posts, they always remind me not too take so much away with me, as I'm a serious over packer! xx

  2. I like your make-up bag!) I wish to have the same))) Right now I'm looking for some new brushes

  3. I love this and I love your travel bag, it's so cute.
    But don't you find it a chore to keep taking your favourite make up and putting it from one place to another? xo

  4. I love seeing what people consider their essentials for travelling. What a great selection of products.

  5. Great post! I am travelling next week and this post was extremely helpful! x

  6. I love the real techniques brushes!

  7. I like what you have put in your make up bag! Nice to see you're mixing up with bargain buys and high end products! :)


  8. I love reading these posts and seeing what other bloggers have in their travel makeup bags! Lovely selection :) x

  9. I love seeing inside peoples makeup bags, it's so interesting! Minis are so handy - I always get paranoid I'm going to lose my makeup when travelling (what a nightmare that would be!) so taking miini versions would be better, great idea! Xo

  10. I love you LV make-up bag~ its quite a surprise how much you can fit in there :) I always tend to stick to neutral shades in my make-up bag too and also cram a load of free samples that i've received aswell to save space. Vegas volt is such a gorgeous colour~ instantly giving that extra pop of colour to any make-up look. Thanks for sharing~xx

  11. you have a lovely selection of products. Can't believe you fit all that into that tiny bag though!! xx

  12. Your pictures are always so amazing! I need to get my hands on Real Techniques brushes! :)

  13. I love your make-up bag! I need these RT brushes in my life. xo

  14. You do a lot better than i do, going away with my boyfriend next month and we only have hand luggage, no idea how im going to travel the make up!!

  15. such a wonderful blog honey =)

  16. Great post, i really want Vegas Volt, how are you finding that Collection spray?

  17. I like the Collection spray. It keeps my makeup in place all day, even when my baby boy is rubbing his face against mine!!! The only problem I have with it is the fact that it squirts instead of spraying. I am used to mists, so it is quite annoying.

  18. i really like these brushes :) unfortunately they are too expensive
