Travel Makeup | Summer Edition

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 am pretty sure you get this very often – nonetheless, it's worth having you read it over and over again: you take the best product pictures – hands down. Love your blog, IG – everything. Xoxo

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

    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

    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

    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. 🙂
