Travel Makeup | Summer Edition

July 1, 2014

As requested, here are the items I brought with me on my recent trip. All the items were carried in my well-loved Bobbi Brown Train Case (from 12+ years ago and no longer available for sale, Old Hollywood Version still available). I tend to overpack for makeup so the case limits what I bring. If it can’t fit, it doesn’t travel with me. I’ve split the items into three categories: Lips, Face/Cheeks and Eyes.

To those who asked to see what I brought with me, I hope this helps! I always have a makeup overpacking problem so my fellow beauty lovers – if you have any tips I’d love to hear what you bring with you on trips/travel whether it’s a weekend getaway, a week trip or extended vacation.

    • I currently use Adobe Photoshop Elements 11, I've used various versions over the years.

  • I love, love, love that train case!! Your picks are just perfect too! xx

  • I do the same too! Pick a really small cosmetic case and cram as much in as possible. Usually that means I tend to bring products that do double duty i.e lipstick as blush, dark eyeshadows for eyeliner, I've even used lipbalm as a brow gel =X

  • The YSL Lipstick looks amaaazing, gorgeous color!! X

  • Posts about packing for trips are my favourites, and yours are the best! Really love the selection of products!
    When I travel I try to stick to a option more suitable for everyday and one more evening appropriate for each category, not more. This way I can mix it up a bit. xx

  • Great make up !!! I love natural shades and nude lipsticks !!!

  • I could take this edit and travel off into the sunset right now, and that never happens. Heavenly!!!

  • The train case is stunning. I have seen a few by River Island that have the same multilayered feel.

  • Better to overpack than to pack too little! Its nice to have options and you never know how you'll feel one day or how your skin will be acting – I'm the same way with clothes.

    I absolutely love that train case. Bookmarked for a future splurge. πŸ™‚

  • Love all the products you have there, colours & brands, I especially love the urban decay naked 3 palette..
