TRAVEL EDIT: INSIDE THE MAKEUP BAG

5 January 2015

As I will be flying to Belfast tomorrow for a few days, I've packed my makeup products and I thought that I'd wanna show you what I'm bringing to Belfast to complete my daily makeup routine!
First, the base is of course important right? I don't really use primer but I'd packed the MAC Travel Sized Fix+ to spritz on before I put on my makeup. I'm bringing one of my favourite foundations, which is the YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation in BD10 and I apply it using my Ecotools Complexion Blending Brush. When it comes to concealing I've picked two products as the YSL Touche Éclat Highlighter Pen in 4.5 is for the under-eyes and the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard is for my stubborn blemishes and anywhere else that needs concealing with the Ecotools Buffing Concealer Brush.

Then I'm moving on to shaping them brows, and I'm bringing the Soap and Glory's Archery Brow Tint and Pencil in Hot Chocolate to fill in any sparse gaps; I also like to shape my brows properly so here's an old favourite of mine, the Bobbi Brown Eyebrow Shaper in Dark Brown which is somewhat like the Benefit's Gimme Brow to shape my eyebrows and put them in place.
For the eyes, I've got another sample from purchasing many months ago, the Benefit Stay Don't Stray Eye Primer in Light/Medium to prime my lids and to prevent my eye makeup from smudging! I brought the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette with the Ecotools Flat Concealer Brush just to add a hint of colour to my eyelids as they're pretty matte with some neutral colours along with a few highlighting colours too. I can't decide if I wanted to wear a dark blue or black eyeliner so I'm bringing both the Stila Stay-All-Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Midnight and also Barry M Blink Waterproof Eyeliner in Black to switch alternatively!

When it comes to eyelashes, I take no crap from anything! Just kidding, I curl my eyelashes with the Sephora Eyelash Curler, and here I've packed the Maybelline Falsies Waterproof Mascara. Let me tell ya, this mascara works perfectly and it's so waterproof that it doesn't smudge at all during the day!
Time to give the cheekbones some colour, eh? I first put on bronzer from the NARS Virtual Domination Palette and the shade Laguna works just fine for my medium skintone! I like to give my cheeks a lovely pop colour so I think I'll use the blush shades alternatively and also highlighting my cheekbones with the Miss Liberty highlighter powder from the same palette with my Full Powder Brush by Ecotools.

Honestly, I haven't made up my mind on what to wear on my lips yet... I'll update you guys on that!


Have you used any of these products? What are your travel makeup essentials?
