What's in my travel makeup bag - Easter break


So I'm currently on easter break and I've come home from uni so today I thought I would show you what products I've brought with me. Theres a mix of products I already love and some new bits I've been testing out recently. So without further ado lets get straight into it or else we might be here forever. 


Primer wise I just decided to bring the Glossier priming moisturiser as it is one of those primers which works well under all foundations. My skin has been super dry at the moment and I've pretty much exclusively only used my Stila primer so I thought I'd pick something similar but try and use something different. For my base I picked something super light and a more full coverage product. The Bare minerals complexion rescue is my favourite super natural everyday base. It's incredibly hydrating and offers a light to medium coverage. I also packed the Charlotte tilbury magic foundation which is the most gorgeous higher coverage base which mixes beautifully with the bare minerals complexion rescue should I want something more medium. 



Concealer wise I decided to pack the new Revolution conceal and define concealer which I've tried a couple of times and I have to say currently I'm really enjoying it. I love the huge doe foot applicator and the formula so far has been something I've loved. I also packed my old trusty Urban decay Naked concealer which is potentially my favourite concealer of all time. For the cheeks I packed the George at Asda blush which is such a beautiful rose shade. I love this for a natural flush however I do have to be super careful with it as the pigmentation is absolutely crazy. I also packed the Glossier cloud paint in the shade dusk which is another really beautiful everyday shade. Its a more orange toned nude shade than the George blush, but they both give the same nude flush effect. 


Highlighter wise I've been loving layering a powder highlight over a cream so I packed the NYX liquid illuminator which is a pinky toned liquid highlight. Matching perfectly with the Laura seller powder highlight I packed. These highlights are super glowy and intense. Bronzer wise I packed my Urban Decay beach bronzer which was one I used constantly over last summer so dug it out of my collection. I love how warm this bronzer is and I cannot wait to get some more use out of it. 


Brow wise,  I packed my ride or die brow products which are the the Anastasia Dip brow which is my favourite brow product of all time. I also packed my Freedom duo brow powder which is my favourite to both use on it's own for a more natural brow but it is also my favourite way to ensure that my dip brow is completely set down. Mascara wise I packed my favourite at the moment which is Maybelline's total temptation which is just the most beautiful lengthening mascara and is so affordable too. I threw in one of the Marc Jacobs highliners, which are the best creamy liners. They aren't the cheapest however if you have super watery eyes and a love of naps like me you definitely need to give them a go. 


I definitely overpacked eyeshadow palettes however all three are new to my collection and I have been testing them extensively over the past few weeks. There will be full posts on all three at some point over the next month as I am loving them all. Anastasia Soft glam which is a gorgeous everyday palette, Violet voss hashtag which is something a little different in terms of a warm toned palette and then Lime crime Venus XL which is the most beautiful pinky toned palette. 

Finally for lips I packed a couple of liners from NYX, George, CYO and Mac. Then I also packed a mix of nude liquid lips and only nude liquid lips which was completely unplanned. I had to bring Kat von D Lolita which is one of my all time favourite nude shades. I also packed Ofra Nude potion from the Nikkie tutorials collection which is the most beautiful pinky pale nude. Lime crime Saint is a much deeper nude and one a lot of people perhaps wouldn't describe as a nude. Finally I packed Stila Patina which is something again I have dug out of my collection. 

So that's it for today, let me know what products you'd take away with you!
