Best Beauty for Travelling

Best Beauty Bits For Travelling
Travel makeup is something I like to get absolutely right. I don't like taking products I'm not going to use or forgetting to pack products I can't do without.  With my trip to Las Vegas fast approaching, I decided to start thinking about the best beauty bits to take with me. 


I used the Becca Backlit Priming Filter a lot before I went away and I can't believe I'd never tried it before. It's a beautiful champagne primer that can be worn under makeup for a subtle glow or on top as a liquid highlight. It's gorgeous and provides such a great base. Another great, long-wearing primer is the Two Faced Hangover Primer. It leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and supple and makes a huge difference when it comes to keeping my base in tact all day.

When I first thought about the products I wanted to wear whilst I was away I knew I wanted to keep things minimal and sheer. I love the No7 City Light Tinted Moisturiser for evening out my skintone and giving a lovely glow while being barely noticeable. Another firm favourite is Bourjois' CC Cream. Again, it evens out skin tone leaving the most subtle glow. It also wears well throughout the day which is a bonus.


With only choosing to wear tinted moisturiser for the majority of the time, I didn't want a concealer that was going to be too heavy over top. I almost forgot how much I love this Bourjous Radiance Reveal concealer but I can't believe I've not worn it in so long. It provides great coverage while remaining dewy and healthy looking. Also, for the high points on my face, YSL Touche Eclat is a great option


I'm totally late to the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder bandwagon but boy, I don't know how I lived without it. It's perfect for a light dusting just to keep things in place or bake with it when I wear heavier makeup. It's absolutely fab and a must have in any travel vanity.

I still like to have a little flush of colour, even when wearing minimal makeup and I think Galifornia by Benefit is perfect. It's a beautiful golden pink blusher and when the sun hits, it looks gorgeous. Other great options for travelling are cream blushes or tints like Benetint. My favourite bronzer to travel with is Benefit's Dew The Hoola. It's so versatile and natural that you really can't go wrong.

on the go hydration

To keep my skin hydrated on planes and during the day time, Elizabeth Arden Hydrating Mist is a must. At first I thought this was a princess product but as my skin gets so dry, it's so handy to pop in my bag for on the go. I'm sure it'll also be a skin-saver on the plane. 


I've been wearing the L'Oreal Lip Paint almost every day since I picked it up about a month ago. The shade Nude-In is the perfect 'your lips but better' and goes with every look. It's matte and comfortable and I think I might pick up a few more shades before I go. I also like to pack plenty of lip balms so my lips don't dry out - The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour one is my fav.


Last but certainly not least is my number 1 favourite mascara to travel with, Maybelline Lash Sensational. I've been taking this away with me for a few years and it's the one mascara I know I can absolutely depend on. It's waterproof, beautifully black and makes my lashes look amazing. That's usually the only product I pack for my eyes - If I fancy a wash of colour, I'll often swipe my highlighter over my lids for a fuss free shimmer.

I'd love to know what beauty bits you love to travel with, let me know in the comments!
