What I'd take in my travel makeup bag

The other day I was thinking of what I'd take in my travel makeup bag if I were to be going on holiday. Unfortunately I'm not going anywhere on holiday or a weekend away and don't have anything booked or planed either. I need a holiday asap and would love to do some travel blogposts, but since it's not happening anytime soon, I'm just going to pretend that I'm packing my makeup bag or jetting off to Hawaii. I thought this would be a different post as I've never done it before.

If I was to be going on holiday, I'd likely take my New Look sequin bag. I love this bag, it's a really good size and is so pretty.

If I was going away sometime soon, I'd take my MAC Prep+Prime Skin Base Visage primer. I have the sample size, so it'd be the perfect size to take travelling. There seems to be a lot of product in there and I think it's going to last me a while as a little goes a long way.

The concealer I would take with me is my NYX Concealer Wand.

The foundation I would take is my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. If I had a drugstore foundation, I'd take that too, but at the moment I don't own a drugstore foundation.

I'd also take my MAC Prep+Prime Fix+, although if I was going away I would purchase the travel size.

I couldn't decide whether I would take my Clinique Contour Chubby stick or my Maybelline Master Sculpt Contour kit. I think the chubby stick would fit better in my makeup bag than my powder contour would.

I'd take my Rimmel Stay Matte powder with me.

For highlight I would purchase the single Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked highlighter in Golden Lights. It's my absolute favourite highlighter in the Makeup Revolution highlighter palette, but I only have it in the palette. It would also take up less room in my makeup bag if I were to purchase the single one.

The eyebrow product I'd take is my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, which is an essential in my makeup.

I think if I were going somewhere, I would take my Makeup Revolution Flawless eyeshadow palette as this palette is a good size, contains 32 mixed eyeshadows and has a really good sized mirror that I'd use to apply my makeup. It'd be perfect for travelling.

I would definitely take my L'Oreal Super eyeliner

The mascara I'd take is my NYX Doll Eye mascara

Onto lip products. I'd take two lipliners, my Avon lipliner and Natural Collection lip pencil. 

I'd probably take two or three lipsticks, my NYX Soft Matte Lip CreamNYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick and my NARS lipstick. I'd also take my Carmex lip balm because I couldn't live without that, I wear it all day if I'm not wearing a lipstick and apply it every night and morning and before I wear lipstick.

Are you going anywhere on holiday? If not, where would you like to go on holiday?
