Beauty Travel Essentials

Hands up who’s excited for the weekend!

I am because I’m visiting London this weekend with Dan to celebrate his birthday. We’re going to do lots of touristy stuff and then go to all the bars in the Carnaby street area in the evening. I’ll be doing a little vlog about it next week so look out for that.

So today I’ve been packing and I thought I would share with you my beauty essentials that I’m taking with me

From left to right : Bioderma Micellar Water, Mario Badesu Cleanser, Simple Toner, Sanctuary Moisturiser, Sanctuary Eye Cream

I’m mainly taking these skin care items because they are mini enough for travel, rather then take my full size favourites

Bayliss & Harding Gingerbread Shower Gel, Soap & Glory Righteous Butter, Sure Deodrant

These are some mini’s I received for Christmas (you can check out what else I got for Christmas here) and I thought now would be a good time to use them

Parlor Shampoo, Co-Lab Dry Shampoo, Mark Hill Anti Humidity Spray, Mark Hill Hair Spray, Parlor Conditioner.

I’m hoping to get away with not washing my hair while I’m there, but just incase I’m taking my Parlor samples I got in my BirchBox. I’m taking dry shampoo incase my hair needs a boost, and the Mark Hill stuff I’m taking for when I style my hair.

Benefit “That Gal” Primer, Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation, Illamasqua Concelaer, LA Girl Pro Conceal In Orange and Sleek Powder

I absolutely have to take my favourite base products! These were in my 2015 favourites and you can watch why I love them so much here

Maybelline Master Sculpt Contour Kit, Benefit Rockateur Blusher and Benefit Highbeam

I’m mainly taking the contour kit and Highbeam because they are more travel friendly then my other contours and highlight. I have to take my Rockateur because it my favourite blush ever.

Kiko Cosmetics Cream Eyeshadows, Benefits Gimmie Brow, Benefit Roller Lash, Benefit They’re Real Eyelash Primer, Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner and L’OrĂ©al Miss Manga Mascara

Clearly I’m very indecisive about my mascara. I just love the Miss Manga so much I didn’t want to leave it behind, but I really want to try the Roller Lash and primer combo.

Primark Lashes and Eyelure Lash Glue

Not that mascara will even matter in the end because I’m taking lashes. I might not use these though because I’m so bad at applying them.

Sleek Vintage Romance Palette, Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette

Will I want a smoky eye or a more natural one? I have no idea, which is why I’m taking both.

Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lipsticks in Roja Red & Petal, Rimmel Provokalips in Kiss Me You Fool. 3 Lipsticks By Rimmel and MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam 1

Same argument as above. Will I want a vampy dark lip, pin up red or a natural nude. I’m so indecisive so I’m taking all these and the kitchen sink. I am a lipstick whore.

And that’s what beauty items I’m taking to London with me. I know you’re probably thinking I’m a bit of a fanny and very incapable of making a decision, I know I am. But there’s nothing worse then wishing you’d packed something and not having it! I also have three outfit choices in my bag too. It’s a good job I’m not trusted with any world decisions isn’t it? On that note I’m off to have a serious word with myself about being an over packer, while I do that, let me know what beauty items are your travel essentials. Are you an overpacker like me or very strict with yourself?

Have a lovely weekend guys!
