Beauty: My travel make-up

April 07, 2015

I often spend weekends away from my flat in London - whether it be visiting friends around the country or seeing my family who live in Lincoln. 

For Easter weekend, Chris and I visited both of our parents so I thought I'd show what I packed in my make-up bag for the three days we were away. These products are what I usually bring and it rarely changes - sometimes I'll bring my Naked Basics palette, or a different foundation but it generally looks like the above. 

Apologies for the very worn products - you can tell I use them regularly!

Face stuff

At the moment I am loving the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel foundation so brought this with me. I will be doing a full post about this soon but safe to say, it leaves skin looking super flawless. My two go-to concealers are the Maybelline Erase Eye Concealer for under my eyes, and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer (I have used it so much that the label has worn off!). Both are so easy to blend and really help to cover circles and blemishes.

For blush, I am a huge fan of the MaxFactor Miracle Touch Creamy Blusher in creamy pink as it's so quick and gives a lovely natural flush to your cheeks.


I have been using MAC's Eyeshadow in Omega to fill in my brows for about two years now - it is so great for ashy blonde eyebrows. 

For eyeshadow, I love my quad palette from MAC which I carry Patina, Satin Taupe, Brule and Cork in - a mixture of matte and more shimmery shades which can be used day and night. I use these colours so often, as you can probably tell! My trusty liquid eyeliner is Collection's Fast Stroke Eye Liner and this is probably the fourth bottle I've purchased as it's such a bargain at £2.99. It does wear off on my eyes a bit during the day but at £2.99 you really can't complain. The final product for eyes is mascara - at the moment I'm using MaxFactor's False Lash Effect which is a mascara I have used on and off since I was 18.


These four brushes are undoubtedly my most used. For applying and blending foundation I use the Real Techniques Buffing Brush which makes the job so quick and easy. For my eyebrows I use a Sonia Kashuk angled brush which I bought from SpaceNK years ago and unfortunately you can't buy her products here any more - they are available from Target in the US though. 

Finally for eyeshadow I have the MAC 239 and 226 brushes. 

What products do you always take on a weekend away?
