What's in My Travel Makeup Bag: Beauty Essentials for Globetrotting

As I embark on my journey around the globe, one thing I couldn't leave behind is my trusty makeup bag filled with my favorite beauty essentials. While traveling, I've had to streamline my makeup collection, but I've made sure to include products that are versatile, long-lasting, and perfect for hot climates.

Complexion Perfection:

MAC Radiance Serum Foundation and Primer:

This lightweight foundation has become my new go-to for achieving a radiant complexion. Its serum formula sits beautifully on the skin and provides just the right amount of coverage for a natural look.

NYX HD Finishing Powder:

This lightweight, translucent powder has earnt its place in my makeup bag it sets my makeup in place, minimizes any unwanted shine, and blurs my imperfections for a smooth, airbrushed look. Formulated with finely milled minerals, this powder seamlessly blends into the skin without settling into my fine lines or creases it is designed to be HD so I always feel camera ready when I wear it I know my makeup isnt going to budge even in the hot humid weather I have been exeriencing on my travels. I use the translucent shade but NYX also offer this finishing powder in different shades to suit different skin tones.

Eyes and Brows:

Maybelline Tattoo Studio Brow Pencil and Tattoo Studio Gel Pencil Liner:

These staples have been my saving grace for defining my brows and tightlining my eyes, even in the hottest weather.

In my makeup routine, I rely on the Tattoo Brow pencil for precise and long-lasting brow definition. This handy tool features a spoolie applicator on one end, perfect for grooming the brows before defining with the soft pencil. After filling in my brows, I go back in with the spoolie to blend and soften the look for a natural finish.

What I love most about the Tattoo Brow pencil is its versatility. Not only does it effortlessly define my brows, but I can also use it to tightline my eyes. Once applied and allowed to dry, there's no transfer, and the formula stays put throughout the day. Plus, it's easy to blend immediately after application, but once it sets, it stays in place without budging. Whether I'm going for bold brows or a subtle tightline, the Tattoo Brow pencil delivers every time. I have it in shade medium brown and I have the Tattoo Gel pencil in Deep Onyx.

Maybelline The Colossal-Waterproof Mascara:

A longtime favorite, this mascara stays put through it all, from pool days to sightseeing adventures I have been using this brand of mascara for years I like the applicator size, shape and the mascara formula is very black and so far during my travels I have been able to replenish my stock in most super markets.

Eyeshadow Palette Picks:

Too Faced The Natural Nudes Complexion Palette:

This palette is so versatile with its 16 highly pigmented matte, shimmering, and sparkly shades, offering a spectrum of possibilities for my eye makeup creations

The shadows in this palette are a standout feature, infused with nourishing coconut oil and rose to provide a buttery texture that glides effortlessly onto the lids. With just a swipe of a finger, you can achieve stunning, luminous eyes with minimal effort. The palette also includes beautiful transitions shades that easily blend with a fluffy crease brush.

Luscious Lips:

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lipstick:

This lipstick truly lives up to its name, staying put for hours on end without smudging or fading.

Maybelline Vinyl Ink Lipsticks:

I'm loving the shades "Unrivaled" and "Lippy" for a pop of colour that lasts all day.

Glow Getters:

Fenty Beauty Highlighter Killawatt Duo:

For that lit-from-within glow, I reach for this duo in "Ginger Binge" and "Moscow Mule. I apply this with an angled brush to my cheek bones and blend right up to the temple for a lifted sculpted look.

MAC Radiant Skin Finish: Medium Golden:

Sometimes, all I need is a swipe of this golden highlighter for a sun-kissed glow on the go I apply it to my cheekbones, my nose, my collar bones. I like to use it as a contour colour for my eyes by applying it above the crease of the eye on the brow bone and extend to the temple instantly ties the bronzed look together for a super east put together look.

Brushes of Choice:

Royal and Langnickel Makeup Brushes:

These brushes are my must-haves for flawless application, along with my trusty Zamira ES01 Kabuki Foundation Brush.

Royal and Langnickel make artist brushes designed for the art of painting and have branched out into makeup brushes they offer endless shapes, sizes and bristles whether you are looking for synthetic or natural they will have what you are looking for. They offer student kits, pro kits or custom build your own so you can choose the brushes that suit your needs. I have the 7 Deadly sins: Envy a limited edition brush set with me on my travels.

Setting Spray:

Urban decay All Nighter Setting Spray:

Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray is a game-changer, it is a cult classic for a reason! it is one of the best setting sprays I have ever used.

I like to spritz my bare skin before I apply any makeup to help give the makeup more grip, once I have applied my makeup I spritz again to lock it in this helps to prevent my makeup from fading, melting, or settling into the fine lines throughout the day.

'All Nighter' has a temperature control technology, which actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep it in place, even in hot and humid conditions this is why it is the perfect choice for me whilst travelling hot and humid places it keeps my face looking fresh and flawless for up to 16 hours.

While my makeup routine has become more pared-down since hitting the road, I still love to indulge in simple yet effective looks. Whether it's a day by the pool or an evening out with the family, I rely on my tried-and-true favorites to enhance my natural beauty wherever I go.
