Makeup Travel Essentials You Need…


I’m not a massive fan of wearing too much makeup on holiday, especially if I’m somewhere hot. Having said that I do love makeup and I love to have options with me wherever I go, keep reading to see what my favourite makeup products for travel are…

Tip: as usual high end products are at the top & budget buys are below. I will not be paid for anything if you do decide to click the links, I am not affiliated with any of the displayed companies.



BB Cream

Smash box Camera Ready BB Cream – £27.00

For me this BB cream is perfect for holiday, it’s super light weight light provides a light build able coverage that has added il control, perfect for beach days & did I mention it has SPF 35?


La Roche-Posay Hydreane BB Cream £10.00

This BB cream is wonderful for travelling as it’s very light in texture, smooth & non greasy.  It contains an SPF of 20 and UVA protection, however it does only come in 2 shades so it can be quite limiting for some.




Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer £7.99

This concealer is great, it’s actually my daily go to but it’s perfect to take away as well. It’s compact with a light formula and it hydrates for up to 24 hours  which is perfect when out exploring and out on the go!


Kiko Concealer £5.50

This concealer comes in 7 different shades, its light weight, smooth to apply & enriched with Vitamin E.




Naked Flushed Palette £25.00

How amazing is this little palette?! It’s sleek and compact perfect for travel and it provides you with your blusher, bronzer and highlighter all in one plus it comes with a decent sized mirror for when you are on the go!

Again this cute little palette comes with a blush, bronze and a highlighter which is available in 4 variations.





Bobbi Brown Everything Mascara £44.00

This handy little mascara is perfect for taking away with you, I don’t like taking full tubes of mascara with me as they tend to dry out fast in hot weather. This mascara from Bobbi Brown is great for lengthening the lashes and creating volume.


Smash box Xrated Mascara £5.00

This mascara is extremely long lasting, magnifies the lashes & is smudge free. Perfect for those hot summer days & nights!




Clinique All About Shadow Quad £29.00

I love small quads like this to take away with me as I do like a smokey eye if I head out anywhere in the evening but keep it light and simple during the day. Palettes like this makes it very easy for me to create whichever look I want and gives me a few different colour options so my makeup doesn’t look the same every day.


Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad £6.99

This long wear, crease resist quad is great for travel as it’s silky formula is easy to blend and is guaranteed to last all day!




Cailyn 2 Piece Gel £29.00

Gels that double up as a liner and a brow gel are perfect for travel as they are more compact. One such as this that is of such high quality are great however they are quite limited on shades but there are plenty on the market that can be used as both a liner and brow gel!


Freedom Pro Pomade £5.00

This is a product I have talked about quite often! It’s lovely and the colour pay off is brilliant, it stays in place all day and can be used both brows & liner. It’s also available in 11 different shades so there’s bound to be one that suits your colouring.



Lip Balm

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Protectant Stick £11.29

This lip balm looks beautiful on it’s own as well as under lipstick, personally I choose one of the bright 5 shades so I am able to wear it as a light balm or build it up for a subtle pop of colour! It helps to soften and moisturise the lips with the added benefit of an SPF 15.



Burt’s Bees Tinted Balm £3.99

This product has a whole lot of conditioning, it containing waxes and Shea Butter to nourish and feed the lips. Again is available colourless or in a few eye catching shades that exude subtle hints of colour!

This kit includes a blush brush which can also be used to apply bronzer & highlight, a concealer/lip brush, an angled brush that can be used for lips, eyeliner or brows & an eyeshadow brush to be used for it’s purpose or contour.
