Make-Up Essentials I Travel With


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:

  • Brushes
    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.
  • Foundation  
    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.
  • Blush 
    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.
  • Mascara 
    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.
  • Lashes
    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.
  • Highlighter
     Fenty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter – enough said! 
  • Eyeliner 
    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!)
