Inside my Travel Bags


Let’s face it, we all love a good nosey in other people’s make up bags so I thought you’d like to see what’s inside my travel beauty BAGS. By the time you read this I'll be in New York then I'm headed to the Caribbean. It’s an amazing privilege and I can't wait but let’s be clear – it’s a major challenge for the beauty obsessed. Aside from the fact I need two separate wardrobes, I also need winter AND summer make up. And the thing is, you don’t get double the baggage allowance.

I hate being estranged by my collection - LOSER I know. I never know what shade of lipstick or blush I might feel like but I can't take them all so here's what made the cut...


Base - Three foundations may seem excessive but I need more than one shade for when I tan plus I'm going to decant them into little tubs. How cute is the mini fix+!


Blush - I had to be ruthless and cut them down to four... although I've got a feeling a couple more might accidentally fall in my bag. Benefit Coralista and Bella Bamba, MAC Melba and Margin.


Lips - I tried to cover all bases - Bold, nude, pink, peach, matte, butter...

MAC Impassioned, MAC Creme Cup, Wet n Wild Think Pink, MAC Ever Hip, Bourjois 03, Revlon Lip Butter Creme Brulee

Eyes -  I couldn't go anywhere without my trusted HD Brow Palette or Benefit's They're Real Mascara. Urban Decay Naked Palettte because in my mind it's 1 product, not 12.



I love me a mini...


And these clear bags from Marks and Spencer are a gem... and a bargain.



Come back soon for some US beauty buys, in the mean time follow me on Instagram @beautyandlechic

  4. hey, tad late on the post! i'm sorry!

    which products did you bring in your hand luggage? I'm taking a gap year to australia in the summer, and I want to be able to bring a selected beauty and skincare products on board the flight, mainly because I know how badly your skin gets on a long haul! ahhhhh! any tips on what I should take??? and what counts in the clear plastic silly bags you have to put liquid in.. assuming I can have a seperate make bag for eyeshadow/lip stuff!

    hope you had a fab time!!
