What’s in My Travel Makeup Bag

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

When I travel I tend to overpack my makeup and end up with three massive pouches. It’s literally the heaviest thing in my luggage (even heavier than my shoes…) Recently I’ve been trying to get down to the minimum of what I ‘should’ need for a two week trip to Italy. I could probably keep downsizing but life’s no fun without a lot of makeup!

Eyes & Brows: I’m not a huge eyeshadow wearer but I still like to bring some with me incase I do feel wearing eyeshadow. For the brows, I find a simple pencil does the job.



Highlighter & Bronzer:

Setting Powder: I usually just travel with the Make Up Forever, but I recently discovered the Guerlain Météorites Travel Touch, and I fell in love so I had to bring it. Personally for me the Make Up For Ever has more of a matte finish whereas the Guerlain leaves my skin set and luminous (and I don’t throw that term around loosely).

Lips: I always overpack my lipsticks, it’s almost like asking me “Which Chanel bag do you love more?!” There is never an answer to that question. Since I can’t bring all of my lipsticks, I make sure to pack a pinkish nude, a variation or two of red, and whatever color I’m obsessed with at the moment.
