Travelling Light....

(Lots and Lots of photos… I got a little snap happy :D )

OK, I know I’ve been a bag blogger recently – But to be fair, I have had pretty much no access to a computer for the past few weeks as I’ve been going all over the country visiting family and friends etc. But I have been writing blog posts (I’ve just not been able to post them) so I’ll be taking lots of pictures for the posts and hopefully uploading them soon :)
(It’s from accessorize for £14 – it’s actually a wash bag so it’s really easy to wipe clean if something spills – their new range of travel accessories is so cute!)
Since I’ve been using my travelling as an excuse for letting my blog posts slip I figured I’d make it up to you all by showing you my make up travel bag :)
So…..
Foundation
I’ve been taking Clinique’s super moisture one with me for it’s light but easily buildable coverage – it’s also super easy to apply with your fingers like a tinted moisture while feeling weightless.

Mascara
Even though I’ve not been wearing this as much as normal it’s still a must have for nights out!

Eyeliner
I’m loving this for making me look awake during the day without mascara and for giving me that ‘done up’ look super simply :)
Concealer
Under eye circles are nearly every girl’s nemisise so concealer for those are an essential (especially when you’ve not had a decent night sleep but you want to look alive lol)

And yes – The Sleek Storm palette :) I’ve gone on about this enough but for any new followers this is the most versatile palette I’ve ever seen :)

The Bodyshop’s warm glow 02
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!! It’s a gorgeous simmery, golden toned bronzey pressed powder – I’ll probably do a full rave/review on this :)

Benetint
A lip & cheek stain – I haven’t used this overly for my cheeks as I’ve been going for the golden glowy look but I love this on my lips as it lasts all day and it lovely and subtle (you can build the colour though if you want more pigmentation)

& Elf’s perfection complexion pressed powder
I’ve been testing out quite a few Elf products recently after I placed a huge haul so be prepared for a lovely big review soon!

As far as brushes go I just takes these with me….

(I’ve been testing out the Elf Brushes but you’ll have to wait for the review to find out what I think :D )
Elf’s Complexion brush
Elf’s Blush Brush
Elf’s Contour Brush
Elf’s Smudge Brush
GOSH’s Flat Eyeshadow Brush

It sounds like a lot of stuff but I took this when I was travelling away from home for a week or two at a time (not just a few days or a weekend) and for a make up addict like myself I think I did pretty good to survive with just these!!

(see? it all fits in!)
P.S I know I've done lots of long posts - There are some more manageable ones coming up - promise!
