As a continuation from my Skincare Essentials I Travel With post (haven’t read it yet? Click here), I wanted to share some of my make-up essentials I travel with.
My daily make-up routine is very simple, so when travelling I tend to only bring one of each necessary make-up components. When it comes to make-up I have my favourites that I tend to stick with until I run out, which is good as it eliminates me from bringing 10 pounds of make-up with me.
Here are my must-have make-up essentials when travelling:
When I travel, I always bring my Sephora Ready to Roll Brush Set. It has all the necessary brushes I need to complete my look and the portable brush roll makes such easy storage and convenient for travelling.
I’m obsessed with the Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in 300 – it’s a product that I’m constantly repurchasing. I love that it’s very lightweight and not cakey but it’s buildable, so I can use it if I’m just stepping out of the house or for a night out with the girls.
- A good concealer
What better to compliment the Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation than Fenty Match Stix Matte Skinstick in Caramel. I use this combo when I want a full face of make-up and love how smooth and natural my skin looks.
- A good powder
SMASHBOX Photo Filter Powder Foundation – it’s a very soft powder and it doesn’t dry or get cakey.
It may be hard to believe but I only own 1 kind of blush and I’m okay with that because why change up something that works well? I use Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat. I love that it makes my cheeks glow with a shimmer finish.
TOO FACED Better Than Sex Mascara – a fan favourite and also mine! I’ve been using this mascara for as long as I can remember and I don’t think I’ll ever take it out of my daily make-up routine.
You can usually find me rocking some great lashes and KISS Lash Couture in Gala is one of all my all-time faves. Theses lashes give off the real glam vibe and I love that it feels weightless on my eyes.
Fenty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter – enough said!
I’ve been perfecting the wing since I was a pre-teen. I’ve gone through many eyeliners in my day but my current go-to eyeliner brand is KISS Long Tip Ink Eyeliner in blackest black. What I love about this eyeliner is ultra-fine and flexible brush tip – it makes it really easy to make a perfect wing each time!
- Lip gloss
Fenty takes another category (I may be Fenty obsessed). The Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow (a shimmering rose nude) is my absolute go-to. I’m all about the shine!
- Make-up remover
If you’re like me, you don’t like to wear make-up when sleeping so make-up remover or wipes are necessary, especially on long-haul flights. I highly recommend the Neutrogena all-in-one make-up removing cleansing wipes. It removes all types of face, lip and eye-make up (even waterproof mascara!)
