What's In My Makeup Travel Bag?!

IT’S HOLIDAY TIME! Can I get a whoop whoop?? When it comes to holidays I start feeling like a little kid in a candy shop and I can’t help but feel like I am going to burst into tears of excitement. As you are reading this I am actually already on my holibobs. I am not going abroad but I am going somewhere fairly far away so for me this is really exciting. How many time do you think I can say ~~ EXCITING ~~ in this post?
Of course I want to pack every beautiful makeup product I own and I will try and take as much as I can but I will have to limit myself to how much I take because ONE I am only going away for a week and TWO my makeup bag is only so big. I won’t spill you the beans on everything I am taking but I will inform you on the main bits I am taking with me and why I have chosen them.
<< The Ordinary Fluid Primer >>
I am taking this primer specifically because this primer is insanely quick at drying. I won’t have hours upon hours each morning to get ready so this will be handy. It also makes me face feel silky smooth and who doesn’t want that?
<< Maybelline Fit Me Concealer >>
This is one of my new fave concealers because it is really light so blends easily. It is light under the eyes as well so it doesn’t crease and looks natural. If I just feel like putting concealer on and no foundation I know that this will be a good back up option for me.
<< Clinique High Impact Mascara >>
I have this mascara in a travel sized bottle, I think it was an extra in a gift set, and of course as it is travel sized it is perfect for fitting in your makeup bag so it saves space. This means room for more makeup whilst having a high end mascara at hand when you need it.
<< NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade >>
This is my everyday brow pomade, and I love it, but it is also good to take away with you because it is so small so takes up practically no room in your makeup bag and is very light. However, if you are now thinking that this means there is no product… this is not the case because the pomade goes really far. I have been using mine for a few months and I haven’t even hit the bottom yet.
<< MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick >>
I have got so many outfits packed for my holiday that if I tried to take a lipstick to match each one, I would have to take a separate makeup bag just for the lipsticks! I have compromised by putting in my trusty nude – Velvet Teddy. I know this will go with early everything that I will be wear and last super long so I don’t need to worry about it wiping off when I go out for a meal each day. But no doubt I will pop in a few colourful lipsticks too.
These are only a few items in my travel makeup bag but what is in yours when you go away??

    Ooo I’ll definitely give the products you mentioned a go! Thanks for sharing!

  18. I have 2 travel makeup bags (small for carry-on and larger one for checked luggage). I know….I’m just bad! That being said, on my smaller one I carry lipstick (different brands, but I enjoy Bare Minerals), eye liner, lip gloss, small mirror, pressed powder, Clean & Clear oil absorbing sheets, and L’Occitane lotion. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Very helpful, thank you so much!

    For me, the essential is to pack extra contact lenses. I’ve made that mistake before and was forced to spend the rest of the trip with my clunky glasses.

  29. My travel make up bag is really simple. Haha. I only have my sunscreen, compact powder, concealer, eyelash curler, brown eyeshadow, and a tinted lip balm. Cause I tend to take photographs and I don’t like it when my face makeup gets stuck to my camera. Sometimes I don’t put at all.
