What's in my travel make up bag

To make the most of the August bank holiday weekend, me and my boyfriend decided to spend a few days exploring other parts of the UK, namely Bath and Bristol.

Normally I'm a huge overpacker, but conscious of the big gap between arriving in the city and checking into our hotel, I tried to pack only what was really needed and I'm pleased to say I got it just right on this occasion!

Madara tinting fluid (not pictured)- My go to base this summer (click here to read my full review).

Garnier anti dark circle roll on- A sheer coverage concealer that helps to disguise the appearance of dark circles and red patches.

Urban decay finishing powder- A transclucent powder that helps to mattify my face and can be topped up during the day without looking cakey.

Maybelline dream mousse blush in peach satin - A gorgeous peachy pink shade. It does need reapplying during the day, but it has a subtle shimmer so there's no need for highlighter.

Sleek make up au naturel palette- A versatile palette with plenty of matte and shimmery shades. I especially liked Nubuck, Taupe and Bark.

Avon supershock gel eyeliner- A long lasting pigmented eyeliner, the only downside is that it needs regular sharpening.

No 7 lash adapt mascara- Great for adding some daytime length and volume. Long lasting too.

Clinique bottom lash mascara- This has a tiny 1cm brush so perfect for those bottom lashes. 100% smudge-proof too.

Maxfactor Max effect lip gloss in sweet red- A beautiful pinky red lipgloss that's great for adding a hit of colour to the lips.

Tools- The Body Shop face and body brush, Cosmetics A La Carte eyelash curlers and a disposable mascara wand.

Have you ever been to Bath or Bristol? What's usually in your travel make up bag?


  1. I visited Bath ages ago when I was looking at uni - so sad I haven't gone back to visit yet, it really is a lovely city! Hope you had a good time there :)

  2. ooo you've got some use out your sleek palette. could you do a look with it please? xx

  3. I'm from bristol but am a little ashamed to say i haven't been to bath in years.
    How did you find it?

    Also how do you find the maybelline blush? Is it very pigmented?

  4. I used to live in Bath :) Love it. Go back regularly. Glad you had a fab time xx

  6. Yu - Thanks, it really is a beautiful city x

    Elle Marie - Sure, this week is rather hectic for me, but will try and get one up asap x

    RIA - I thought it was a beautiful city full of historic buildings and places of interest. Definitely worth a visit. I'd say the pigmentation was medium- enough to give a decent colour but not so much that it's hard to blend x

    Computergirl - Thank you, it's a lovely place isn't it x

    Dreams That Glitter xoxo - Thanks, it was a lovely weekend away x

  7. I saw a few pics from that trip! (somewhere... maybe on twitter/fb?) and it looked like you were blessed with good weather!

    Bristol and Bath are definitely great choices and so is your make up collection! =)

  8. Bath and Bristol are lovely cities- was there at the beginning of the summer! Have you been to cheddar- amazing village with cute tea rooms, very english :)

  9. Rinny - Thanks, we did have some rain on Saturday but on the whole the weather was good. Both are such beautiful cities too x

    Aphra - No I haven't, but will definitely bear that in mind if I make a return visit x
