What is in my travel make-up bag...

I've been meaning to put this post up for ages but with one thing or another I haven't got around to it. I've always suffered with joint problems and lately have been having quite a lot of trouble with my hip, which means a lot of pain and not a lot of concentration to write blog posts!

I went to visit my brother-in-law in Wokingham on the bank holiday weekend. I didn't take a lot of make-up with me as it isn't that type of place, I always feel way over dressed there as its a real casual place.

This is the minimal make-up that I took :

ELF Studio Blush in Peachy Keen
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Rimmel Stay Matte foundation (my 25 hr is running out so this was a back-up)
Rimmel 25 Hour Foundation
Eyeko Magic Eyes Mascara
MUA Heaven & Earth Palette
Sigma F80 (for foundation)
Sigma F15 (for blusher)
All packed in my pretty pink Sigma make-up bag (part of set)
I also took my Witch Primer but forgot to photo it!

Here is a little peek at the clothes that I took (all dresses, I'm trying to change this habit!)

What are your essentials when travelling?


  1. I love nosing at posts like this too which is why I thought I'd do my own xx

  2. i love posts like this!
    i think i'm just nosy, haha ^_^
    Rosie xo

  3. I always forget things, that is why the primer wasn't in the photo but thankfully I remembered at the last minute!
    I must make myself a check list that I can use everytime I go away.
    That time I forgot my PJs! x

  4. I find this one works well for me x

  5. I love it, I will be reviewing it soon. I haven't tried Candid Coral yet x

  6. Its a nightmare isn't it, this weather doesn't help matters!
    Make-up twins lol x

  7. I still haven't tried this as I bought MAC Studio Fix and the Rimmel 25 hr still hasn't run out x

  8. I really need a good pressed powder as the only one I have is NYC Loose Translucent Powder and it works great but it's absolutely NOT purse friendly. Will have to take a look at that Rimmel Stay Matte Powder!

  9. Is the peachy Keen any good? I have the Candid Coral and I absolutely LOVE it. I would imagine that they're similar? x

  10. Awe poor hon I have to deal with bad knees so I know how you feel been quite bad too lately lots of sleeping with pillows under my legs haha Love your make up bag we have very similar go to products :)

  11. I have the rimmel foundation (matte) in the palest shade yet it makes me look orange still :( it's weird.

  12. Ooo I love seeing what people pack make-up wise for travelling, I am awful and really struggle with cutting it down! Plus I normally always forget something, when I went to visit the boy last week I remember eye make-up remover but not just general make-up remover! lol
