Makeup Bag Edit

Seen as it is the Easter holidays for myself and many of you reading this post I thought it seemed fitting to do a makeup bag edit to give you an insight to what I carry with me when I go on longer trips.


I try to leave brushes to a bare minimum as they tend to take up a lot of space that could be used for other makeup. I only take eye brushes and a powder brush as I feel I can get away with doing my face makeup with my hands, but I wouldn't like to attempt eye shadow this way! the majority of my brushes are from real techniques or eco tools.


I am never really a girl for face products and don't actually own a foundation, I purely stick to bb/cc creams and if not that just concealer. A product I have been loving recently has been the Bourjois CC Cream, it gives a beautiful finish to your skin. Of course my concealer is my trusty Maybelline Fit Me and my powder the Rimmel Stay Matte.


I tend to keep eye looks simple when I'm away unless I know I'm going somewhere special. I stick to the basics. I bring along my beloved Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Liner and my tiny Benefit Rollerlash Mascara. For eye shadow I only usually bring one or two products, this time I chose to bring my Mac Paint Pot in 'Bare Study' to use on its own or as a base and my Mac eye shadow in 'Sable', these paired together can create a gorgeous look as well as being just as good on their own uses. For my eyebrows I continuously use the same products, the natural collection eye shadow duo in 'Mocha/Latte' and the Collection Clear Mascara, both are cheap and good quality.


I always like to have options when it comes to my lip shade, you never know what the day will bring. I chose to bring my Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in 'Nudist', Mac Lipstick in 'Crème Cup' and 'Twig'. Although I am sure there are still many other products lying around in my bag waiting for me to take.


I more overlooked products to take away on trips with you is nail polish. There is nothing worse when you have chipped nails, so by taking the colour you're wearing with you along with another option you can top it off along with being able to switch it up to match your outfit.

I hope you enjoyed this little in sight into my makeup bag and some of my favourite products that fail to leave my side.


  1. Corr there are some real good ones in here! :D Bourjois CC Cream was one of the only two foundations to get 10 out of 10 in my recent foundation round up - it's such a good one. x
