What's In My Travel Makeup Bag

I’m travelling to India next week, so today’s post is all about holiday beauty....

I will soon be travelling to beautiful India and I’m SO excited. I’ve wanted to visit India for such a long time and I can’t believe that I’m actually going (yay). All the wanderlust.  Today’s post is all about the beauty products that I’ll be taking with me.  So, if you’re also travelling this Christmas for a bit of winter sun or if you’re just wishing for summer already, keep reading…

For primer, it has to be the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer, if you read Our Dreams of Fashion often you’ll know that I literally haven’t stopped raving about it since I bought it. It brings all the moisture, foundation loves it and it leaves your skin feeling really replenished. It’s a total winner. For my base, I want to keep things simple. There’s nothing worse than a heavy base when the weather is warm. Urgh. I used Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue during those really hot months that we had during May and June this year. And I have to say, it really is the most perfect ‘holiday’ base: lightweight, hydrating, and it gives a gorgeous dewy finish. It also has the added benefit of SPF 30. I just love this product. I’m a girl who loves to bring all the glow, so naturally I will be taking lots of highlighting products with me: the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette needs no introduction (you know I love it). It’s so multi-use: I use the darker shade to lightly contour, mix the two lightest shades to highlight and the shades can be used as eyeshadows too. Love, love, love it. I’ll also be taking NARS Copacabana illuminator with me because it just epitomises holiday beauty for me. NARS describe the shade as a ‘glistening pearl’ and it just adds the most gorgeous shimmer and highlight to the skin. In my opinion, nobody does blushes quite like NARS: they have just got it right. You go, NARS. Anyways, Mean Girls reference aside, I recently invested in a new NARS blush. It's a beautiful peachy-pink blush with a hint of gold shimmer (like I said I like to bring ALL the glow).

For brows, I always use my trusty Benefit Gimme Brow, which I apply with an angled brush. This product gives me brows to rival Cara’s (well, sort of) and I take it with me wherever I go. My mascara of choice is the waterproof Hypn├┤se Doll Eyes. I love this mascara- it gives me long fluttery lashes that hold a curl. I don’t really like to spend too long on my makeup when I’m on holiday, especially when it comes to eyeshadows so one-sweep wonders are a go-to.  I’m all about b-e-a-utiful golden glittery eyes right now and this KIKO Long Lasting Shadow stick in 07 is such a wonder product. For lips, I love the peachy shade of the KIKO Smart Lipstick in 902 – it’s so summery. As you know, I’m a massive fan of the 'your-lips-but-better' shades and the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Barbara is a beauty of a shade: a tan-rosy beige. And of course, I’ll be setting it all in place with the Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray, which does exactly what it says on the bottle. It’s a holiday must. Finally, I love beachy-waved hair while I’m on holiday and the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray is a must in any travel makeup bag.
