Today I have a guest post for you by the lovely Cariadity. I highly recommend you head over to her blog and follow, you wont be disappointed! I am currently on holiday at Disneyland paris, and these tips are so relevant and helpful to me.
Today I'm going to share a few travel make-up tips that I picked up over the last few years, I find myself packing quite a lot these days from weekends away, to weekends home from Uni and for visiting my boyfriend.
1. Cheap/easy to replace
My biggest worry when I take my make-up out of the house is that it will get lost, stolen or left behind. So I try to stick to cheaper high street brands because I know that if the worst did happen I could replace everything relatively easily. Like in the picture above the benefit products are free samples, the MUA palette was £4 the BB cream was £7.99, the concealer £4.19, lip butter is £7.99 and the eyebrow pencil £2.99 so the whole set could be replaced for £27.16 which is less than one decent high end foundation!
Samples are perfect for travelling as they are usually a great size for packing light, they are free (with magazines, from make-up counters or from product websites) it's also a good opportunity to try out new products too, but best to give them a test before you leave as you wouldn't want to end up away with only a sample of foundation 3 shades too dark.
When your away plans seem to change at the last minute and I always end up somewhere unexpected, so I like to take some options in case I want to change my look. A palette like the MUA one covers simple day time make-up but can also be used to create a more intense look for evenings out.
4. A whole look
I like to take enough make up for a whole look. It might seem like a good idea to skip eyeshadow or an eyebrow pencil to save space but I find these are the little things that make a big difference between looking polished or looking like you have just slapped it all on.
5. Easy to apply
I love to take a tinted moisturiser like the BB cream and a lip butter because they are so easy to apply, I end up putting make-up on while in the car or on trains so anything needing a precise hand is out.
Hope you have found these tips helpful!
