What's In My Travelling Makeup Bag..

Hello hello..

A few weeks ago I did a blog post about what's in my travel toiletry bag and it seemed to have gotten a really good response so I decided to do a 'What's In My Travelling Makeup Bag. Again, I used to bring so many makeup items yet truth be told, I don't really like wearing a lot of makeup when travelling. I have reduced the size of my makeup bag over the years especially when I discovered items that are dual purpose. Wanna see what's in my compact makeup bag? Here we go..


I bring my BB Cream which I made myself (Click here to know how) because I wouldn't have to bring a primer or sunscreen and it provides light coverage which is ideal for me when I am on the go.

I bring my Chanel Vitalumiere Eclat which is my favorite powder foundation at the moment because whenever I am in the City, sometimes I get invited to dine at places where I need to look a bit more made up. These invites are usually not informed before hand so I like to keep this handy just in case.

My Concealer is a must. This is Mac's Select Cover concealer which I love to use for my under eye circles.

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. I have this in my travelling makeup bag because it helps to keep my eye makeup from creasing and fading while I am out and about.

Ah, my fave go-to product of the moment when it comes to eye makeup. This is Maybelline's Color Tattoo in 'Bad To The Bronze'. I just have to blend this on my lids and the satin finish of this product makes it look like I have more than one eye shadow on. I can use my fingers to apply it so it's convenient since I don't have to worry about bringing my eye makeup brushes with me.

I like to define my eyes using an eyeliner and this is the only black pencil liner that I have which is Mac's Technakhol eye liner in Graphblack. I use this on my upper lash line.

I like to use bright colored liner on my lower lash line because I think it gives the eyes such a wonderful pop of color, making the eyes look fresh and awake. This is Rimmel London's Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in Aqua Sparkle.

I got this blusher from Etude House a few years agoand I like it because it is so nifty and convenient. I just need to press the sponge on my cheeks and blend it with my fingers. Although it is slightly chalky, it does give a sweet pink blush on my cheeks. Love it!

A lip gloss by The Body Shop (this has a duo-chrome pink and peach shimmer which I looovvee!) on my lazy days..

My Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop for when  want more color on my lips. 

Tools that I never go travelling without.
