What's in my travel make up bag?


I recently spent a lovely week in Devon and thought I would write a post about the make up I took with me. On a day to day basis I wear very simple make up, so this isn't going to be the most exciting 'What's in my travel make up bag' you will ever read but I still decided to share it with you. 


 Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation
 Soap and Glory's Thick & Fast mascara, I love this but mine is finally needing to be replaced.
 MUA (now not so clear) mascara which I use to set my eyebrows after I have filled them in.
 Balance Me Rose Otto lip balm
 Revlon lip butter in Cupcake
 L'oreal Caresse lip stick in Tempting Lilac
 Collection lasting perfection concealer which has definitely seen better days now that I have lost the lid!
 Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder
Rimmel eyes hadow quad in 'Smoky Brun', I use the darkest colour from this quad on my eyebrows and the lightest colour as a highlight in the corner or my eyes
Soap and Glory eye liner pencil in black
Real Techniques blush brush
Eco Tools powder brush
Random eye liner brush from Sainsburys
Collection Highlighting concealer
MUA eye liner pencil in brown
MUA mosaic blush in 'English Rose'
Cath Kidston make up bag

Oh, on a side note, I took these pictures on the window sill in the living room of the cottage we rented for the week. I really wish I had a window sill like this! The lighting and space were good for taking pictures which is something I don't have in my own house.

    1. It's pretty much the only powder I have ever used so far. I've never felt the need to try anything else, although I have been tempted by some MAC ones.

    I agree about the windowsill, I'd like one like that to take pictures too, as they are really great pictures.

    Have a beautiful day

    1. I don't have anywhere with good light and enough room to set products out in my house, so this window sill was perfect!

    1. It tends to get pretty messy inside but it's easy enough to clean - I just throw it in the washing machine with my clothes every now and then :)

  13. I was just about to ask what the Chanel foundation was like, but I saw you have a review of it - checking it out after this!

    I've always wanted to do this type of post, but I'm one of those people who takes EVERYTHING with them wherever they go! Haha.
