Travel Make-Up Bag

As you are reading this I will be on a train down to London. I'm spending the next week in London and then onto Paris, so I thought it would be only be right to share with you what make-up I am taking with me. I've tried hard to pack light for this trip and I don't think I have done too bad. 
For base products i've gone for two options and some primers. First being the Witch Anti Blemish Skin Clearing Primer which i've been loving lately. It keeps my make-up in place and helps with oil control. I'm bringing the Dr Jart Regenerating BB Cream SPF 30 which is a lovely light base with a good amount of coverage and it has a good SPF too. If I fancy foundation i'm bringing the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation which is another light base but can be built up for a bit more coverage. For an added glow i'm bringing the Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector in Rose Shimmer which adds a nice glow without being glittery. It can be used as a primer or mixed in with foundation too. Finally I have the Vichy Dermablend Foundation which I use as concealer and is amazing at covering blemishes. 
The powder i'm bringing is the Seventeen Pressed Powder which is a lovely fine powder which set my make-up without looking powdery. For bronzer i'm bringing the Bourjous Bronzing Primer which i've been loving lately for a defined, natural bronzed look. I'm bringing two cream blushes (which was very hard to narrow down!) the first one is the Stila Convertible Color in Gladiola, a lovely coral blush which can also be used on the lips. The other being the Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Androgen which again can be used on the lips and is a lovely pinky coral shade. I'm also bringing a mini of Benefit Sun Beam because I love wearing this on my eyes as well as a highlighter. 
For eyeshadow i'm bringing the MUA Undress Me Too Palette which isn't my favourite palette but it's small and compact and good to travel with because it has a lot of different shades in it. I'm bringing two MAC Paint Pots in Painterly and Groundwork to use as bases. 
For mascara i'm bringing the Mayebelline Mega Plush Volume which I like but the brush is a little big but it is buildable. For under eye concealer i'm bringing the L'oreal Lumi Magique which I love because it gives a good amount of covering whilst being light and brightening. I'm also bringing my Collection Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde and a few different eyeliners from RImmel and a lovely bronze one by Mayebelline. 
I'm bringing some of my most used eye brushes too, most are either Sigma or Real Techniques. 

Finally lip products, again this was hard to choose but i've gone for the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart which is a lovely bright pink shade. I'm bringing both of my Miners The Matte Factor Lip Creams which I love in Peach which is a lovely everyday shade and Warm Red because i'm trying to rock a red lip more often! I'm bringing two of my Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Fruiti and Wild Watermelon, both are great Summer shades.

So that's what's in my travel make-up bag. I'm tried to pack some bits that are multipurpose to save space. What make-up products are a must have for traveling?
