My Travel Makeup

Saturday, August 10, 2013
Here is my travel makeup, I was so busy taking photographs for this post because I created this post the day we were going on holiday - not very organised but here are all of the travel makeup products I am currently using on my holiday. 
Base products: For base product I took the Becca Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation in the shade Porcelain which is a really great match for me. I took this foundation because even though I haven't used it a lot, I really like it, it makes my skin look like skin and it lasts fairly well. I also took my Jemma Kidd Moisture Tint as well if my skin is drier than usual. To set my makeup I bought along the amazing Revlon Nearly Naked powder which is almost invisible on the skin. Other base products I took include the: Body Shop Moisturise it Primer, my trusty Cosmopolitan Beauty Foundation Sponge and my Clinique Airbrush Concealer. Oh and for contour and bronzing I took the ELF Bronzer in the shade Cool and it is just fantastic!

Eyes and Brows: For my eyeshadow primer I took my Nars Proprime which is the best eyeshadow primer I have ever used and I bought my Soap & Glory Whats Nude Eyeshadow Quad which I have been using for months and months and I still love it! For my brows I am bringing a new addition to my makeup collection, it is the Loreal Super Liner Brow Artist Pencil in the shade 03 which is great. Also for my brows I am taking a brow gel which is essential for me and it is the Revlon Brow Styling Gel which is the only one I have now because my Gosh Brow Gel ran out a few days ago. Also if I want to wear liner while I am on holiday I took the Laura Geller Inkwell Waterproof Gel Liner which is in a nice handy travel container (it comes with a brush in the lid). I am taking my Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara too which isn't my favourite but it will do. 

Lips: For lips I am only taking on lip pencil - the Illamasqua Medium Pencil in the shade Ascend and I am not taking any lipsticks because I don't want them to melt or get ruined during travelling. I am also taking a lip gloss, the Laura Mercier Lip Glace in the shade Sweetheart because it looks amazing on the lips and the longevity is pretty good too. In terms of lip balms I am taking my trusty Burts Bees Beeswax Balm because it is cooling and soothing. 

Look out for my other travel beauty posts coming soon! Ps. I cannot comment because this is a pre-written post while I am away x

  3. Love the look of that LM Lip Glaze. I haven't tried them yet but have heard great things about the formula. You pack so light... I'm embarrassed how much make up I take away with me haha.

    1. I usually take a lot more makeup but we had to carry the suitcases on and off trains for two days so I didn't want to carry any more than I needed! x

  5. Great post Heather, I've been waiting to try ELF for a while now (they're definitely pretty inexpensive!), are they any good (the concealers in particular)? :)

    1. I have tried quite a few elf products and they can be great at times but some of their products are pretty bad - the bronzer quad, tone correcting concealer and the elf studio cream eyeshadows are all fantastic products :) x

  6. It's amazing how you can really cut down the amount of makeup you bring! I always feel like I need three eyeshadow palettes with me because you know, I might need a bright blue eyeshadow some day! Haha! The Soap and Glory quad looks amazing! xx

    1. I know, I usually over pack but I narrowed it down this time! And I didn't even end up using half of the items :) x
