A reader asked me to do another “What’s in my travel makeup bag post” as it has been such a long time since the last post regarding this so I decided to do one very quickly last night so that you could have something fun to read while I’m driving to Sweden. Can’t say I’m looking forward to the drive as it’s so much wind that even the ferry sailings are cancelled. Please ignore the quality of the pictures ;)
Sigma SS134 – A big and fluffy brush which I like to apply powder with.
Sigma SS168 – An angled brush for applying blush .
Sigma SS165 – A small tapered brush which I use for contouring.
Mac 139 – I like to use this for highlighting.
Bobbi Brown blending brush – No other brush does the job og applying Benefit powderflage under the eyes like this one.
Bobbi Brown small angled brush – Love this brush for applying shadow to my brows.
Sigma E25 – Similar to Macs 217, the perfect blending brush which I always use no matter what makeup I’m applying.
A mascara wand from a Dior Blackout mascara- Perfect for combing through the brows to get a natural finish after having applied shadow.
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast – I use this as a primer on very dry skin and dried out spots to avoid a flaky finish to my faoundation. It gives a nice finish at the same time as it’s good for the skin. Yay!
Smashbox photofinish primer – I used picked up the first primer I saw which was this one. I like it, butI’m still searching for a better one.
BRTC BB Cream – Totally loving this stuff, review will come once I’m sure my skin is ok with it ;)
Kanebo Sensai Fluid finish in 203 – A really nice foundation which doesn’t break me out, I just wish they could produce more shades.
Nars Sheer Glow in Fiji – A foundation that covers really well, feels great and looks beautiful on the skin.
Mac LE msf in Lightscapade – A beautiful highlighter which is beautiful on winter pale skin (whilst Dior Amber Diamond is a beauty on tanned skin).
Mac msf natural – This powder is a little bit pale for me still, but somehow this was the powder that I packed with me. Too pale is better than too dark after all.
Chanel blush in Reflex – A pretty peachy pink blush with gold reflects.
Nars blush in Orgasm – When nothing else seems to work, this always picks me up :)
Nars blush in Dolce Vita – I love this blush for accentuating the cheek bones. Beautiful on nights out!
Nyx blush in Taupe – This is my favourite product for contouring. Love, love, love this!!!
YSL Touche Eclat – I use this miracle pen under my eyes, along the bridge of my nose and above my upper lip.
Benefit Powderflage – I use this powder to set the concealer under my eyes to avoid creasing,
Mac Studio Finish nc20 – I use this on imperfections in my oilier parts of the face as it is slightly drier than most concealers.
Mac Studio Sculpt nc20 – I use this on imperfections in drier areas of my face.
Mac Moisturecover nw15 – I use this under my eyes if I have some serious dark cicles to get rid off. I also quite like to use it under my brows.
Lancôme Hypnôse Precious cells in brown – The perfect mascara for my lashes. I love the wand!!
Mac brow set in Beguile – Hairs I did not know I had suddenly appears making my sparse brows look fuller.
Mac brow pen in Dirty Blonde – I don’t really use this anymore, but it’s with me just in case.
Mac eyeshadow in Coquette – My go to eyeshadow for brows.
Mac eyeshadows: Brule, Dazzlelight, Cork and Espresso. Works for both day and night :)
Mac painterly paintpot – A cream base to keep the shadows in place
Loreal Super Liner – A really good and cheap liquid liner :)
YSL in #2 – Very pale on it’s own, but I like to use it underneath a creampuff to get a nicer concistency
Chanel in Aventure – Pretty pink colour.
Chanel #15 – My all time favourite lipgloss which has been taken out of production. Thank God I bought all I found when I heard it was going out :)
Collection 2000 Creampuffs – Really mousse like lipglosses with a matte result. Can be a bit drying.
Mac Bombshell – A very pretty sheer pink.
