What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?
So, now that I’m back from Portugal (I wish I was still there), I thought I’d do an updated What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post. My makeup collection has expanded a lot since I done my Spring What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post from my trip to Paris. And also since I went for two weeks, I took a fairly sizeable chunk of it with me.
For face and eye products I used this sturdy, see through bright green bag, which I got from WH Smith and is technically supposed to be a pencil case, but it worked brilliantly for makeup.
As of Summer 2014
So the last post in my makeup collection series is about all my lip products. This is by far the largest part of my collection. You can see an overview of my Makeup Storage by clicking here and you can see the other parts of my collection series by clicking here. My lip products are stored in the top three compartments of my makeup storage, as shown in the photo below.
Sunkissed Summer Tag
I saw this tag on YouTube and thought it looked really fun and decided that I had to give it a go. I’m loving summer now that it is here and by the time this posts I will be in Portugal! I’m really looking forward to some sun, sea and sand! And some much needed R&R! So, onto the Tag questions!
1. What is your go-to product for a sun kissed summer glow? (bronzer, self tanner, etc.)
I love bronzers and my current favourite is my Bronze Block in the shade light from Sleek.
As of Summer 2014
After doing an overview of my Makeup Storage in this post here, I decided to go a little more in depth and show what I have in my collection as it has grown quite a lot this year, I’ve become a bit of a makeup addict recently. It isn’t going to be really in depth, but I am going to tell you what everything is. If you would like any swatches or a review on any of the items then please do let me know and I’ll look into doing that for you. I’m going to split my Makeup Collection into a series of three posts, one for lip products, one for eye products and one for face products. This is going to be the post for what I am calling face products and is basically all of my primers, foundations, tinted moisturisers, bronzers, powders, concealers and blushes. These occupy the big bottom section of the box I store my makeup up, pictured below.
Boots and Superdrug
So, I’ve been a little makeup and cosmetics crazy recently. I needed some things and I wanted some new things to try so I bought a couple of things from Superdrug and Boots. Compared to some of my other hauls recently, this is fairly small (thank goodness).
What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?
As of March 2014
I’ve seen several posts floating around recently where people have been sharing what is in their daily makeup bags. Since I’m recently back from a trip to Paris with my mum, I thought I would share what was in my travel makeup bag since most of the things I took are the things I use every day (when I wear makeup, which isn’t everyday usually), with just a couple of extras to change it up occasionally.
Spring Fling Tag
So, I saw this Spring Fling Tag on Miss Holly Berries YouTube Channel and thought it looked like a lot of fun. I think everyone is ready for the winter to be over and this totally helps to get me in the mood for Spring. And it’s March finally, so I class it as Spring. The pastel nail varnishes have been dusted off!
1. What eye palette do you/will you use most this spring?
I very rarely use eye palettes, I pretty much stick to one or two eyeshadows all the time and they are mostly singles. But I did get Barry M’s Natural Glow Palette for Christmas so I’ll be using that a lot this spring. I have debated getting one of the Naked palettes, but I don;t know how much use I’d get out if it.
Zara, Boots, Superdrug and Avon
I have such a back log of posts that this is a haul from the beginning of December. Most of this was on a Christmas shopping trip and although I did buy some presents I also got myself a few things.
The only thing I bought from Superdrug was this lipstick from Sleek Makeup. I very rarely wear lipstick but I really wanted a nude colour and this was the one I liked out of all the ones I looked at and it’s in the shade Liqueur.
Best of Beauty 2013 Tag
I was tagged by the lovely Benita over at Benita’s Beauty Bits and Bobs to do this tag. If you haven’t already checked out her blog, then you really need to, she is amazing. The Tag is to share your favourite beauty products in a certain category from 2013. Now I’ll be the first to admit that makeup is not a strong suit of mine, but 2013 has been the year when I’ve worn makeup more than I’ve ever worn it before, so I’m so happy and excited that Benita tagged me to do this. I don’t know all that much about makeup, I’m much more of a nail varnish girl then a makeup girl, but I am slowly learning, and many of the makeup products I use are the same over and over again, but I’m happy to share what I do use with you all. And hopefully 2014 will bring new products for me to try. 🙂
I will hold my hands up and admit I don’t use a face primer, I just use moisturiser before applying my foundation. And my favourite one in 2013 was my Olay Essentials Complete Care Plus Everyday Sunshine Moisturising Cream.
