What’s in my travel makeup bag?

Hello everyone! Long time no see! 

I’m sorry for not posting in a while, i’ve just been so busy lately due to the fact that it is the summer holidays. But i missed you all! And now i’m back! 

I hope you are all doing well and that you are enjoying your summer. Today i thought i would share with you what is in my travel makeup bag. Now i went on holiday a few weeks ago and i thought I wouls share with you what makeup items i took with me so i hope you enjoy!

So this is my travel makeup bag, it is from Aldi. I know it looks a bit childish for a 17 year old but it was the only one i had and i didn’t want to go out and buy another one! This came in a set with two other smaller makeup bags which are perfect for everyday use. 

The bag is also very spacious which is perfect for travelling. 

The first thing i took with me was my beloved Bourjois nealthy mix foundation which i’ve spoken about a million times on my blog so i’m sure you don’t want to hear any more about it! But this is my all time favourite foundation and i wear it most days when i wear makeup. 

For primer i took my max factor facefinity as this is amazing at making my makeup last longer and it also has SPF 20. 


I decided to take a BB cream also just incase i wanted a lighter coverage on some days. The one i took with me was the Garnier miracle skin perfector bb cream which is my favourite bb cream. 

I then took a concealer with me, this was the bourjois healthy mix concealer which is my favourite at the moment. It is a perfect match for the bourjois foundation. 

I also took the rimmel wake me up concealer which is a better match for the bb cream, i also love this. 

For powder i took the maybelline fit me powder which is my all time favourite. This is a great powder for a great price, i would definitely recommend it. 

For my eyes i took my Too Faced chocolate bar palette which you know i love! It has an array of stunning shades which are all perfect. It also smells like chocolate which is incredible!

I also took the Rimmel wake me up mascara, this is really nice and has a cucumber scent to it which is lovely. I only apply a very thin layer as my eyelashes are naturally very long. 

For my lips i took my eos lip balm in sweet mint which is my new favourite lip balm. It is very moisturizing and smells amazing too!

I then took my Bourjois rouge edition velvet in ‘Don’t pink of it’ which is a Stunning neutral pink shade which is perfect for every day use. 

I also took the bourjois colorboost lip crayon in ‘peach on the beach’ incase i fancied to go for a more of a peachy lip one day. 

As for brushes i took my Real techniques core collection set which is amazing! I use the buffing brush to buff in my concelaer and i honestly love it so much! The set is also very travel friendly as it comes with a travel case. 


For eye brushes i took tnis claire’s set and a brush from the body shop just because i don’t own any other eye brushes so if you have any recommendations then please leave them below. 

So that’s it for what makeup i carried with me in my travel bag. I also did fit my haircare into this bag as it does have a lot of room! But i decided not to share my haircare and skincare with you as the post would be very long, and i thought the makeup part was more interesting!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Let me know what you thought of it in the comments.
