What´s in My Make Up Bag? - Travel Edition

Hi there internet friends.

If you are following me on Twitter, you probably now that I am in Cologne right now. I am seeing some friends and doing fangirl stuff while my big girl camera arrives at home (I would´ve loved to take her with me...).


Anyway, what better chance to show you what I packed make up wise? I don´t have a make up bag normally as I don´t carry much make up with me but I do have to take the essentials with me whenever I travel. Emphasis on `essentials´. (*clears throat*)

In the big red bag I have put all the normal stuff you need. Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body milk, toothpaste, toothbrush, ... You all know that stuff and it´s not really important. I´m not gonna tell you every brand and every name as there´s something much more interesting: Real make up. 

Besides a powder and a blush brush I have packed my eyelash curler and my Eggbert, click here to read a review on Eggbert. For foundation I decided to go with my Kiko Medium Foundation as my skin is still quite light and this foundation isn´t heavily lying on my skin. Also I need my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15 for obvious reasons. I couldn´t go without my love: Catrice Prime And Fine Mattifying Powder Waterproof, review here. I think I´m going to show off with that waterdrop trick.

For eyes I needed to take my Maybelline Mastershape Brow Pencil in Soft Brown. It´s really essential. I took my Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette as it has the most basic shades in it. I would´ve taken the Naked Basic Palette if I owned it.  If I am in the mood for a bit more dramatic eye look, I can wear my Catrice Liquid Liner.

To have two choices for my blush I took the Essence Happy Holidays Blush Stick in 01 Run, Run Rudolph and my Boulevard Blusher. I can now go with light or heavier cheeks. I can also choose between the Kiko Double Touch 10 Hour Lipstick in 103, my Mac Lipstick Kinda Sexy and my Astor Color Last Vip Lipstick in 008 Spicy.

Basically, I have packed way more than I should have. But now I do have some choices left and can impress my friends with different looks instead always looking the same. I do think that I might go for just the basic (foundation, eyebrows, blush and mascara) anyway. I´ll try hard to not let that happen. I have time to get ready, so why not use it?

Have a wonderful day
