What's in my 'Carry on' Make-ip Bag


I posted on Wednesday about my trip to Lisbon (read about it here) and today I thought I'd share what I packed in my make-up bag. We flew to Lisbon with carry on luggage only, meaning I could only take things 100ml or less, to say the least, packing was tricky...

L'Oreal True Match Foundation

I went back to basics for my face bace this holiday, I wanted something with more coverage than a BB cream because it needed to last all day but nothing too heavy. I don't know why I ever switched from this foundation, it's so good.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

On my winter break to Thailand back in February I was loving my UD Flushed palette because of it's versatility and affinity for light weight travelling. This time around I was loving the Naked basics for the same reason! I used 'Cover' to fill in my eyebrows, 'Stark' as a base for my eyeshadow, 'Skimp' as a highlight and surprisingly 'Frisk' as a super subtle bronzer.

Barry M Dazzle Dust - 44

One of the main reasons I went to Lisbon was for a festival so I couldn't fly without some sort of glitter in my make-up bag. I remember being in love with the Barry M dazzle dusts when I was 14 and I totally rekindled my love for them this holiday. I picked up '44' which I think is called Gold or Tan or something, it doesn't say on the pot but is a beautiful metallic gold! I am in love.

MAC Fluidline - Blacktrack

Would you have guessed any different? I talk about this eyeliner so much, it's perfect in warmer temperatures and humidity because it doesn't move an inch, unlike most liquid/gel eyeliners i've tried.  Must have, never leaves my make-up bag sort of item!

Two Faced Better than Sex Mascara

I bought this about a week before I went away, i've been struggling mascara's a lot because they tend to leave me with black flakes all around my under eyes by one in the afternoon. I've heard great things about this one and it just so happens to be one of Taylor Swifts favourite mascara's so I couldn't not try it! And I love it.

And that was it, a travel make-up bag in 5 items! I'm not one for packing lightly so was so proud of myself when I pulled a 5 item make-up routine out of the bag. I'd love to know what 5 items you have to travel with for your holidays.

Love always,
Melissa
