What’s in my travel makeup bag?

Hi loves,

I am off to Birmingham (UK) on Tuesday and I am just taking a carry on suitcase. My travel makeup bag is one of the things I will have with me and in today’s post, I will show you how I pack and what goes inside my makeup bag.

Planning what to take

I have all my makeup in various pots.and containers. I bring them all together and start deciding on what to take based on the way I do my makeup. I started with priming and foundation/concealers. I then moved on to eyes and blushes. The final stage is my lippies.

What’s in my makeup bag?


A moisture surge face cream sample (Clinique) and other cream samples.

Estee Lauder Matte perfecting Primer.

Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and  Brush on Glow concealer. I am also taking my Estee Lauder Double Wear compact, so I can have something to carry in my purse.

Now you may ask, what about lippies?

Oh! I always chuck 3/4 in my suitcase and more in my handbag. So far I know I am taking my Colour Pop in Plum/ Poppy Pop and My H& M Fancy Freesia.

And…. here’s my makeup bag with everything in it. The random stuff gets chucked in the suitcase in a different bag.


So, that’s all folks!! If I have time I will also try to do what’s in my carry on Bag, but I have to prepare my talk as well ( I am presenting at a conference), so not sure. Anyways, let me know if you think I need to take something else.
