What's in my travel makeup bag

Hey guys, so I made a quick trip to London recently and thought it would be great to share what kind of makeup/beauty essentials I travel with.

First off, my makeup bag is by Betseyville. I got this last year from TKMaxx in London for around £4.99 (Bargain!) and it has a really nice silver metallic print on it. Also the signature lightening bolt zipper.

Some essential makeup brushes, all from ELF. Two eye makeup brushes and three face brushes (blush, stipling brush for foundation and a big face brush)

My mirror is the Model Mirror from Les Tai Tai. I love this so much as its so compact but useful as well since it has soft inbuilt lights. Mine is in 'Cobracabana', and you can get yourself one here.

Some very essential everyday face and hair products: Breath of fresh air toner from Lush (read my review here). Macadamia oil, Origins super spot remover, Olay classic and Dead Sea Magik silky smooth body lotion.

My favuorite mascara: The body shop and Barry M liquid eyeliner in black.

Some lip products (Since I am very moody about my lip colours, I usually carry a lot of different ones!)

These are my 3 main face products that I use everyday: ELF HD Powder, Revlon Colourstay foundation and ELF Blush and bronzer compact.

(Travel Bottles from Primark) MAC Green Gel Cleanser (read my review here), Jergen's body lotion in Jasmine and my all time favourite perfume: DKNY Pure.

Lastly (phew!) my favourite concealer these days: Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer.

I have literally used each and every product ever since I came here, so I think it was a good selection of products to bring.
Hope you enjoyed this little peek into my makeup bag! Please do let me know if you would like to see more similar posts or want me to review any of the products mentioned above (I have used most of them for a couple of months).

Have a lovely day!
