My Travel Make-Up Bag

As some of you may know i'm going on holiday to Los Angeles and San Francisco (i'm currently there as you read this!) and I thought I would show you what make-up I am taking. I do plan on picking up a good amount of make-up whilst i'm out there so I only want to take my essentials. 
 My make-up bag is from Topshop and I can fit a good amount of products without taking up too much space. I can't find it in the lilac shade on the website but here's a link to the black version.
The foundation i'm taking is the Clinique Even Better foundation which is so light and I can mix it with my SPF and make a tinted moisturiser. I've also depoted so of my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation for the evening. The concealers i'm taking are Benefit Erase Paste for when i'm really jet lagged, Rimmel Match Perfection for under my eyes and Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection for any redness or blemishes. I'm taking a primer because it will be hot which is the Monu Skin Perfector and finally my trusty 17 Pressed Powder.
The bronzer i'm taking is NARS Laguna which I love so much because it is so natural, i'm also taking the ELF Golden Bronzer which again looks so natural but I can also use it as eyeshadows. The blushes i'm taking are my two Topshop blushes in Head Over Heels and Flush. Finally i'm taking my favourite Natural Collection blush in Peach Melba. 
For eyes i'm taking my Benefit Creaseless Cream in Birthday Suit and my MAC Bare Study Paint Pot, both of these look great on their own or under shadows. I'm also taking the MUA Eye Primer and L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara. For eyeliners i'm taking the Sleek Eau La La Liner in Cocoa and my MAC Liner in I Get No Kick. For brows i'm taking the Rimmel Eye Brow Pencil in Hazel and some clear mascara. 
For lips i'm taking my Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in Honey, Cherish and Darling. A Barry M Lip Gloss in Coral which I recently got but i'm already in love with it. Finally i'm taking the Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Fruiti which is a bright orange and I thought it would be perfect to wear in L.A.

So that's the make-up i'm taking, i'm also probably going to take the Stila In The Light Palette but I forgot to include it. I reviewed it here if you don't know what it looks like. I still might take a few things out but this tends to be my everyday make-up products.

What is your must have beauty product when travelling? 

*This post is going up when i'm away so sorry if I can't reply to comments and questions as fast as I normally would.*


  1. I really want to try the 17 pressed powder, do you have a review? x

  2. You've good some lovely products in there :P you've given me some inspiration to start thinking about what makeup i should pack when i go away in a couple of weeks!

  3. How are you getting on with Revlon Stains? Do you like them? I really want to pick some up but I worry they will leave patchy colour residue when coming off like the original Stains (I hope you know what I mean :D) xx
