My Top Travel Makeup Items

Recently I’ve been visiting my parents and I also had a family trip away… so I thought I would share with you the makeup products I took on those trips. I just love it when makeup can be condensed into a smaller bag. I don’t always use makeup when I pack a lot so this time I decided to take just a few items that would serve me well. Here are the items I chose….

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer

Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer

YSL Eye Shadow

BareMinerals Blusher In Shade Aphrodisiac

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer

Benefit BROWVO! Conditioning Primer

Benefit Gimme Brow

Benefit Brow Pencil


I love a good tinted moisturiser and the Laura Mercier one has a lovely dewy finish. You don’t need brushes, as you can apply it with your hands, so that’s good for travel! I also love the Rimmel concealer for any blemishes that might appear and the Bourjois concealer is my go to for under eye brightening.

For eyes, packing an eyeshadow primer is a great idea as it makes your makeup last and look even better. I also am loving using the YSL single eye shadow at the moment, and it even contains a cute mini brush, so this is also good for on the go!

In terms of brows, I’ve been loving using the conditioning primer first to give my brows some pampering. I then have been using the Benefit Brow Pencil for filling in any gaps and the Gimme Brow to tint and set the brows. These are great products to pack!

Finally, a little blusher can elevate a makeup look and make it seem more put together than the time you actually spent on it. I love this blusher as it has a lovely brush with it. It’s also the perfect coral colour for my fair complexion.

I hope you liked my travel makeup suggestions! What do you pack for travel? Do you pack brushes as well or do you like to keep things simple like me?
