Our Travel Makeup Bag Essentials*


Today, myself and Chrissi from Chrissis Blogs, are sharing with you, our makeup bag essentials for weekends away. Chrissi posts about beauty, lifestyle, fashion and even weddings! I love her blog and I’m sure you will too, so make sure you go and check out her blog! You can compare our posts for inspiration when you’re packing to spend a few nights away!


MAC Lipsticks – Brave (Satin), Velvet Teddy (Matte), Mehr (Matte)

MAC lipsticks are my all time favourite lipsticks for many reasons, but when I’m travelling I like to take my 3 favourites, Brave, Velvet Teddy and Mehr! So that I have plenty of options!


MAC Lip pencil – Soar

This is my favourite lipliner and it goes with pretty much all of my nude/mauve lipsticks and it looks amazing by itself!


Benefit – Posie Balm

I love this lip balm because it’s tinted and moisturising. So, it’s like wearing a nude lipstick but it feels lovely on my lips!


Bobbi Brown Lip Colour – Pale Mauve 73

When I want to wear a more natural lip colour that is appropriate for spring/summer I always reach for this! It’s perfect and goes with all eye looks!


Nars – Pro-prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

My eyeshadow simply doesn’t last unless I have a primer on, and this one locks the shadow into place and it really is smudge proof!


Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Sparkle Shadow + Liner – Sunlit Bronze 4

These cream eyeshadows are my new favourite things! I really want to pick up more because they are so easy to use and they look beautiful. The sparkle in them makes it 100 time better, and I use this all the time!


Urban Decay – Naked 3 Palette

I have been using this palette so much as Spring comes along, and as there are so many shades, I never really need to use another palette! Also, it actually fits into my makeup bag!


Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour – Rosegold

Another really easy to use eyeshadow, and it’s small size means it slips easily into my makeup bag! I love the colour to, it is a perfect spring colour!


L’oreal – Super Liner Superstar

I swear by this liquid eyeliner, its shape makes wings so easy and lining even easier!


MAC Mascara- False Lashes Extreme Black

I usually take this mascara because it is really build able, as in one coat gives a natural look, perfect for day time. But the more coats you apply, the more dramatic it is, which is perfect for the evening!


Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil – Saddle

I use this on my eyebrows everyday! It’s perfect for travelling because it has a brush on the end, and the slanted tip on the wax makes it so easy!


Vichy BB Cream – Light Shade

I like to keep it nice and simple on my skin, so I take this BB cream because it is light weight and leaves my skin looking flawless!


MAC Mineralize Skinfinish – Lightscapade

As Spring and Summer come along, I like my glow to look a lot more natural, Soft & Gentle is lovely but it’s very intense. Lightscapade is very natural but still gives a glow!


I usually use this makeup bag when I go away for a weekend. I got this from the MAC Christmas collection 2015, it came with a lip bag, and it has come in handy a lot more than I thought it would!


As you can see, all of this makeup fits into my makeup bag, that’s why I love it! It’s small but it expands outwards meaning I can fit absolutely everything in it!

Most of these products are eye and lips, because when I’m away I don’t usually have long to get ready, so I just stick on some lipstick and eyeshadow, but occasionally I will wear a full face! Also, I change my lipstick colour about 3 times a day! Once one has come off, I will apply a different one! That is why there are so many lip products!

Hopefully you’ve got some inspiration from our posts! Don’t forget to check out Chrissi’s essentials here! Let me know in the comments if you are spending a weekend away anytime soon, maybe our posts will come in handy!
