Travel Tips, Part 1 | What I Packed In My Travel Make-Up Bag!

Hello Lovelies. Welcome back to Beautiful You!

I thought that while I am away I would share with you how and what I packed to take with me on my trip to New York, I am going to be away for 6 days in total. The first instalment I will share with you what make-up I am taking with me in my make-up bag and why I decided to take some specific items! This was quite easy for me as I went back home the weekend before I left for New York so I already had this packed so I just lived out of my make-up bag for a few days!


So this is everything that I decided to take with me and I thought that I got it down to a reasonable amount. I will go through everything to just fill you on why I decided to bring them with me.

1. Naked Flushed Palette- this is a brilliant product because it has all the face products you need in a compact palette. This fits perfectly in my make-up bag and it gives me slightly more options so I can mix it up from day to day.

2. Run Boy Run Palette- I have been loving berry colours on the lids at the moment and this palette had the best combination of colours ever. There is also a mix of shimmery and matte colours which is also a bonus as you have plenty of variety. 

3. MAC Blusher (Fleur Power)- as I am very indecisive when it comes to blusher I thought that packing a second one would give me more options to choose from. This is my go to blusher when I just can't make up my mind therefore it is perfect for the trip!

4. Kate Moss Lipstick (107)- I have been loving dark lips and as we are now in the midst of autumn these colours are perfect. I am going to the fashion capital of the world so you want to have some edge to your appearance and this is a brilliant way to add just that!

5. Revlon Lip Butter (Lollipop)- again this is another plum lip but this one has slightly more of a pink tone to it which makes it easier to wear on an everyday basis. The formula of these lip products are also very moisturising which is brilliant in the cold weather.

6. Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer- this is my favourite concealer so I had to bring it with me, however it is nearly running out and I didn't know if it would last me my whole trip so I had to pack a second one to make sure.

7. Rimmel 25 Hour Foundation- again this is my current foundation that I am using and it last for such a long time that it is perfect for those long days sightseeing! Again I didn't know how much was left so I had to pack a second one just to make sure that I would have enough, although I could have bought a new one out there.

8. EOS Lipbalm- you can never take enough lip balms away with you but I have limited myself to this one because this is all I've been using at the moment. As the weather is getting colder I am obsessed with lip balms as they are my saviour and I know I am going to be needing it while I'm there!

9. Maybelline Colour Tattoo (Pink Gold)- this is the perfect product for a base because it makes the shadows last longer and it gives it something to stick to. I love this colour as it keeps the eyes a little bit lighter and also gives it a bit of shimmer. 

10. Natural Collection Eye-Shadow (Crushed Walnut)- I use this product for my eyebrows as I am not really a fan of filling them in but this is the quickest way for me to do them. This is also super cheap and really small which is perfect for packing.

11. One Heck of a Blot Powder- everyone needs their holy grail powder to get them through their trip, this one has to come with me. Who knows what the weather is going to be like in New York but I know that I am going to want to set my make-up for the day and this is what I will use!

12. MAC Bronzer (Golden)- even though it getting colder I still like to add that warmth to my skin that I get though applying bronzer to the perimeter of my face. I don't think I could go away with any other bronzer because I use this everyday. 

13. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation- like I said above I didn't know if I had enough of my current foundation to last me the entire trip so I put my second favourite one in. This again is a really long lasting foundation that has a lighter coverage compared to my other one so it will be nice to have a choice. 

14. Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara- this is my favourite mascara as it gives your lashes length whilst adding volume at the same time. My lashes don't necessarily need a special mascara to make them look good but I would totally recommend this product to anyone.

15. Revlon Super Liner- everyone loves a liquid liner and I cannot go anywhere without mine. They are perfect for just lining the lash line for a day time look and then they are brilliant for winged liner to take the look from day to night. 

16. Revlon Colourstay Concealer- like I said above my favourite concealer is running out so I had to take another one with me and this was my next best product. I haven't really used this much because I tend to stick to the same products but the times I have it has been really nourishing whilst covering any imperfections! 

17. YSL Babydoll Mascara- I don't really know why I am taking this product because I don't use it that often but sometimes I like to wear less mascara but still get the effect I want and this is the perfect product. You only need to apply a small layer of the product and you have really lengthy lashes!

I hope you enjoyed this post and seeing what I have taken with me to New York. As you all know I am currently there so all these posts are pre-written so I hope you have all managed to read them!
