What's In My Travel Make-Up Bag


Deciding what goes into your make-up bag when you're about to travel can be a pretty difficult process. Even if it's only for a few days it can be a lengthy process deciding what will make the cut.

I'm an overpacker. Always have been and always will be. I remember going to school camps and i'd always be the kid with the biggest/heaviest bag. I could never understand how girls could fit everything they needed into a backpack..it was barbaric. I like having my options thank-you.

The make-up bag i'll be taking down is by Ted Baker (how cute is it?!). I don't know if i've gone a little overboard with how much i'm bringing. You guys can be the judge of that.

  • Real techniques expert face brush
  • Max Factor 3 in 1 flawless foundation (almost empty but i'm planning on buying a new foundation down there, perhaps Nars Sheer Glow)
  • Collection 'Lasting Perfection' concealer 
  • M.A.C Highlighter in perfect topping 
  • Too Faced 'No makeup makeup' - Essential for traveling. Has a bronzer, two blushes, two concealers and a highlighter
  • Contour brush I bought off ebay (may do a review on this, I really like it and it hasn't shed surprisingly)
  • Clinique brush (don't know the name but I use it for either blush or highlight)
  • Revlon shadow brush
  • E.l.f blending brush
  • E.l.f defining brush
  • E.l.f eyeshadow brush
  • MUA "Undress Me Too" eyeshadow Palette
  • Maybelline "bad to the bronze" colour tattoo
  • Yuva brow dust
  • Yuva eyebrow brush
  • Some random eyebrow brush (don't know the brand)
  • Benefits "rollerlash"
  • Soap & Glory's "supercat eyeliner"
  • M.A.C "whirl" lipliner
  • M.A.C"cherry" lipliner
  • Essence "cute pink" lipliner
  • M.A.C "russian red" lipstick
  • M.A.C "brave" lipstick
  • Clinique "woppin watermelon" chubby stick
  • Estee Lauder "passionfruit shimmer"pure color gloss
  • Dior "lip maximizer" 

So that is what i'll be bringing with me on my 4 day trip to Melbourne. Did I go a little overboard? How much make-up do you pack when you're going on holiday?
