What's in my Travel Makeup Bag

I really enjoy reading these posts to see what makeup items are essential to someone when travelling, so I thought I’d do my own post. I have been enjoying having good skin days recently so I haven’t been wearing too much makeup, so these are really my essentials I have been travelling with when I pop home for the weekend.

Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer, Revlon Colorburst lipbutter, L'Oreal waterproof Telescopic mascara, no7 eyelash curler, L'Oreal gel intenza eyeliner, Bobbi Brown corrector, Maxfactor  Flawless perfection Blush, Mayelline color tatoo 24hr, Anatomicals never lose your cherry lipbalm

I have very straight thick eyelashes so an eyelash curler is and waterproof mascara is essential for me to hold the curl. With normal mascaras my eyelashes will drop within 2hours of applying it. I really like the telescopic mascara, it makes my eyelashes really long, however you don’t get much volume with this wand so I’d recommend using it in conjunction with volumising mascara if you want a more volumised look.

L'Oreal Gel Intenza Eyeliner and brush

I have been loving the L’Oreal gel eyeliner, especially the brush that comes with it. It is really great for creating the doll eyed look that Zooey Deschanel often has. You can use the tip to get a really fine line and turn it on its side to get a thicker line in the center of your lashline. 

Maxfactor, Flawless Perfection Blush, 225 Mulberry

I actually really love this blush on my skin tone, it gives such a pretty glow with a sheer wash of colour and it blends so well. It can be a little powdery but nothing I can't work with. 

Overall I haven’t been carrying too much makeup around with me recently, whilst I am in the process of moving back home now that university is over these items have become my essentials I always keep with me wherever I stay.

What are you essential makeup items?
