Whats In My Travel Make-up Bag?

Hello Lovelies (:

I have spent the weekend packing for our trip to New York (on Monday) and let me tell you it has been hard trying to pick out the outfits and whittle my make-up collection down to a few items! But I got there in the end so I thought I'd show you what make-up made the grade!

I seem to have quite a few products for my eyes, I only really use one colour out of my MAC palette and that is to fill in my eyebrows but I have to take the whole thing with me. The NAKED palette is great as there are so many wearable colours for both day and night, such a fab product especially for travelling with! Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, these are an everyday must to give my lashes that little curl. Always take a black gel liner with me as it finishes my eyes off nicely. I have oily lids so this Too Faced Shadow Insurance really helps to keep the eyeshadow on and stop it from creasing throughout the day. The Primark lashes are new I bought them yesterday, I have heard some good things about them I just need to buy some DUO Lash Glue when I'm out in NY to apply them with.

I have been using this travel size primer from Smashbox to help give me that flawless finish and give my make-up some staying power, after using MAC's Stuido Fix Fluid foundation I set it with the Laura Mercier translucent powder. I don't use many lip products and if I do I'm normally wearing something quite neutral but I want to be more adventurous which is why I've also packed the Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie.

Of course I am hoping to pick up a few make-up bits whilst out in the Big Apple so need to save room in my bag!

I am getting really excited now and what is even more exciting is my boyfriend has booked and planned it all and I won't know what we are doing until the day, what a sweetie!I obviously won't be blogging much this week but I am hoping to do a few posts with pictures of our trip for you all to see!

Any items I NEED to pick up whilst out in America?

Thank you for reading


p.s. I have tried something new with my pictures, I would love to know what you think about them


  1. Oh wow, your trip is going to be amazing!! So excited for you, your boyfriend sounds like a total keeper, planning everything as a surprise! Bless him.
    I love Raspberry Pie, so pigmented though, isn't it - I always find I have to be really careful applying it! Which Mac lippy is that? It looks really pretty.
    Loved seeing inside your makeup bag, always enjoy a good nose at what people actually use on a daily basis!
