What's in my travel make up bag

Whilst I'm not afraid to visit my local supermarket on a Sunday with a make up free face the same can not be said of travel when there's the impromptu flash of a camera possible at any moment. That said I like to keep things simple so it's easy to remove once I've boarded the plane and reapply when coming in to land - here's what I added to my inflight make up bag.

No 7 Stay Perfect Superlight Foundation
I wouldn't usually bother with foundation for a flight but as I wanted to take my current fave on holiday with me I threw this into my make up bag. Whilst I usually apply this foundation with a brush I've discovered for a lighter base using the fingers works well

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
The concealer no beauty bloggers make up bag is without. Aside from it's brilliance I chose this as it's coming to it's end and could possibly find it's way into my holiday empties post

Chanel Les Beiges
My holy grail product from Chanel that sets everything in place without caking and instantly makes me look alive.

Clarins Bronzing Duo
There's no time for contouring during travel so instead I reunited myself with an old favourite, the Clarin's Bronzing Duo to add some colour to my face. Not a necessity but a pleasant addition nonetheless.

Chanel Creme Blush - Affinite
This blush is both easy to apply with the fingers and my go to whenever I want a pop of colour on the cheeks

MAC Paint Pot - Painterly
I didn't want to bother with eye shadow, brushes etc whilst travelling and I've been using Mac's Painterly as a base for some time now. I like the simplicity of this on the lid with some eyeliner and it's so easily applied with fingers.

Chanel Eyeliner - Ambre
Chanel's black kohl was a must have for me years ago and I mistakenly brought in the brown and left it abandoned for years until recently when I prefer to wear something more subtle.

Maybelline BROWdrama
The simple theme continues for brows with a product you can see reviewed in full here.

Barry M Gelly Lips - Capella
Lip crayons are fantastic for travel and the Barry M Gelly Lips being one of the thinner this easily slipped into the make up bag for a pretty pink on my lips.

I didn't take any photos of the look whilst travelling but you can see it in action here when I gave it a test run when I popped out for dinner last weekend.

Not bad for avoiding scaring the immigration officials and everything above fitted neatly in the smaller of this clear make up bag set from Marks & Spencer which you can find here.

  1. The Barry M Gelly Lip shine looks really lovely - I have to see if I can get hold of it this week :o) Xx

    1. Def take a look I want to get some of the other colours. Let me know if you pick it up x

  2. Ooh there are lots of things there I need to try! Is the Chanel Les Beiges applied with a brush? I'm liking the sound of that! I'm going to make a list, my birthday is only a few months away and after last years debacle I need to drop big hints, in written form!

    1. Chanel Les Beiges comes with a brush and whilst I usually don't even consider using the brushes included with palettes I love their one and don't even consider another brush now. It's great for setting under eye concealer too x

    2. Thank you, I may try the concealer too, I love my Maybelline superstay 24 hour concealer but it's nearly empty so maybe I'll try a change. I'm definitely buying the Chanel Les Beiges though!

    3. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer isn't bad actually, I haven't tried the superstar though. Chanel Les Beiges is a must!! Amazing stuff x

  3. The 'I'm-going-on-holiday' face! Yipee!
    Like the sound of the lip gelly and the Collection concealer; totally out of the loop on those two. Might have to give them a go (without breaking the bank too!).
    I love that No 7 base; tried it on your recommendation and it's fab!
    Happy holidays!
    Z xx

    1. I'm really loving high street make up at the moment, I know there's a bit of Chanel included but the lip gelly and conceal or are definitely worth a look. Glad to hear that the No 7 foundation is working for you x

  4. Looking lovely!!! How quickly did you grow your fringe out??? Can you do a what I carry in my flight bag - yes I'm that nosy lol - Hope you are having a fab time (p.s. was bordains that you went to is that the Anthony Bordains place???) xx

    1. My hair grows really quickly and I tend to just style it away from my face really so not long.

      And I certainly can… I will get right on that for you!

      Boudin's is famous for their sourdough bowls and Clam Chowder, Anthony Bordains is different my lovely x

  5. I swear by Chanel makeup, which I know is bad for my purse, but its definitely good for my face! HA. I adore their powders the most. x

  6. Such a long silence, it's been a week since you posted. I hope that means you're having a fabulous time. Aloha!

  7. I never remove my make-up for the flight. Is that bad??? I would frighten everyone lol You are adorable Grace

    1. I didn't used to but when I went to Vegas last year I did and it made such a difference to my skin that I repeated it this year x
