Makeup travel bag


For part two, of my travelling series I’m going through the different products i have in my checked luggage make-up bag. 

Baby skin instant pore eraser

L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24h Foundation: the reason I choose this foundation is it long lasting , as when I’m on holiday I have long days from early morning to evening.

Loreal stay matte in silky beige 005

Tanya Burr Rosy Flush Palette: having a bronzer, blush and highlighter this palette is great for travelling.

Hourglass ambient edit: this does do the same thing as the Tanya burr palette, but I do have a special occasion one of the nights while I am away where I want to use the hourglass palette, however it was expensive so for the day time, and other times during my stay I will be reaching for the more affordable Tanya Burr palette.Kat Von D ink liner, in tropper(black) and Beaudeline( navy blue)

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in barely brandedStilla eyes are the window shadow palette: choose this one because it has light neutral shades, to use with a bold lip, and also dark purple shades for evening looks.

NYX sex bomb: has 6 shades, nice silm packaging for travelling , and great drug store product for day time use.

Estee lauder sumptuous extreme mascara

Maybelline brow drama in medium brown

I have 6 lip colours which I am taking with me, to decide which lip colours I wanted to take, I organize all the lip colours I had into categories of nudes, pinks and reds. From each of the categories I picked 1 or 2 shades I wanted to take with me. Two of these shades will not be going in my checked luggage, but in my carry on (  so stay tuned to that blog post coming soon )

Carry On luggage


For my current trip I’m lucky enough to have large checked luggage and because of that I don’t have the need to carry things like clothes and such in my carry on so I simple have my essential for carry on. The bag I am using is from Colette it is large enough to fit everything I need, I’m a huge fan of the gold detailing on this bag.

eye mask: my flight time is around 5 hours and very early morning , I’m sure I will have a short little nap.

Book-Sharp objects, if I’m not sleeping then I will need some entertainment

Medication: it’s always a good idea to keep your medication on you instead of in your checked luggage just in case it take times to get your luggage, and also taking some panadol is useful in case you get a headache during the flight.

Wallet and ID: if you are flying overseas don’t forget your passport( I’m just travelling within Australia, so no need).

Phone and charger (also a pair of headphones)


Watch: I keep this in carry on just because it is valuable, and just feel more comfortable having it with me then in checked.

Face wipes: in case I want to freshen up, also useful if you accidental touch something unpleasant in the airport or on the plane.

Make up

MAC pink pearl pop

I also have an umbrella, going to the tropics it could be needed once landed, and spare change of clothes and underwear in case something was to happen to my checked luggage.
