Travel Make Up Bag!

Hey Guys, Gemma here. If there is something I struggle with when I go on a trip, it is what to take makeup wise. I feel like I need everything in my collection so I don't run out of options but obviously this is not the case! I assume this might be a problem a few of us beauty loving people may suffer from so in that case, I thought I'd share what I have decided to take.


Realistically, my brushes is the only thing I couldn't cut down on. Each of these will be used! So I'll be taking my Real Techniques Blush Brush that I use for contouring. My ELF stippling brush for foundation and then just a bunch of eye shadow brushes including ELF, MAC and Elizabeth Arden. I only take this amount of brushes for eye shadow so I can do loads of different looks.


I have to say just now that I will probably only use make up for going out in the evenings. With me I will be taking my Bourjois foundation that I will mix with my moisturiser so I am not wearing that much. I will also be taking my Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer, along with my collection concealer. My Nars Laguna Bronzer and two Stila Convertible Colors as I prefer using cream blushes in the heat. Then my MAC mineralize skinfinish just to set eveything. Finally I am taking a Smashbox eye primer.


Picking out lippies to take was definetely a struggle! But I finally narrowed it down to three with I think will go with anything. MAC's 'Hue' and 'MAC Red'. Then a Rimmel Kate lipstick in the shade 20. These are the perfect, nude, red and hot pink lipsticks.


I still haven't actually decided on what eye shadow palette to take! I am between either naked palettes or my TooFaced natural palette. I prefer my TooFaced on as I hate the fallout from the Naked palettes and the quality of the shadows are amazing but the Naked palettes have more choice in terms of darker colours if I wanted to do a smokey look. Sorry I had to steal these pics from an old post!

So that is what I take with me make up wise! What do you take on holiday with me? Let us know!

Until next time,
