Travel makeup bag

I'm going on a little holiday to Brisbane for Soundwave, so I thought I'd share with you the makeup I'm bringing. I'm not bringing much as I'm only taking carry on, and the forecast is for rain the entire time!

Essence  To Die For palette - A neutral palette that doesn't take up a lot of room! I love two right shades, and the top right shade is perfect to use by itself.
MUA liquid eyeliner shade 3 - Just in case I want to use a liquid liner
Benefit BadGal mascara -  I don't actually own a waterproof mascara, so this will have to do! I might end up buying a waterproof Mascara while I'm in Brisbane so I can wear it to Soundwave, haha.
Bourjois clubbing waterproof eye pencil - I'm bringing this because it's waterproof! I've also been using it a lot lately to thinly line my upper lid when I don't want to bother with liquid liner (I can't help but do wings every time I put on liquid liner and most of the time I spend ages trying to fix them up because they're uneven!)

The Body Shop Born Lippy in Lychee - I love this lipbalm. It smells really nice so I've been using it a lot
Carmex Moisture Plus tinted lipbalm - always handy to have two lipbalms!
Revlon lip butter in Peach Parfait - I finally found it!! Of course it was hiding in my boyfriends room, which it's probably been since Christmas!
Revlon kissable balmstain in Romantic - I love this red! It stays on a really long time so I don't have to worry about reapplying it as much and can enjoy my holiday.

NBN tinted moisturiser - This tinted moisturiser is tinted enough to give enough coverage when I'm having a good skin day.
Maybelline Dream Matte powder - Putting this over the tinted moisturiser will give me a little more coverage and help set my face when it's super humid!
MUA Shimmr Kisses blusher - I'm mostly taking this because I've been loving using the bottom left shade as a highlight! I don't want to bring a highlight and a blush so this works as both.
Australis travel blush brush - This is small, but I don't want to waste room taking my regular blush brush which is a kabuki.
Cosmetica double ended eyeshadow brush 
Dot by Mark Jacobs sample 

Makeup remover wipes. I recently finished these Swisspers wipes, and decided to put a couple of the Australis makeup wipes I got from this months Bellabox in the empty container so I can just throw the whole lot out before I leave. Hopefully they work ok because I don't have anything to cover up my face with if they irritate my skin.
Travel size Swisse Shampoo, Herbal Essences Hello Hydration conditioner (in a shampoo bottle), Swisse body wash.
Dove roll on deoderant (almost empty so I can throw it out before we leave), Sorbolene cream (in a nivea bottle), Body Shop Cranberry Joy hand cream (This has been missing since before Christmas!), Banana boat sunscreen sample from Bellabox, Coles sunscreen (also almost empty so I can throw it out before we leave), floss, toothpaste and toothbrush.


  1. I'm a terrible packer when it comes to going away I always pack way to much. you seem to have done a great job :)
    Have sooooo much fun at Soundwave & be sure to tell me how AMAZING it was. I don't know what bands your planning on seeing but hopefully you get to see all the ones you love I'm beyond excited for Soundwave here

    1. It was so hard to pack this light!! It just means I have room to go shopping!
      I'll make sure I write about my trip when I get back. I'm so excited, Blink, Paramore, Motion City and All Time Low are the main bands I want to see and none of them clash :D I hope you have a blast at yours!

    2. haha I'm glad I'm not the only person you LOVES all time low :) I don't care how old I get I will love them forever I saw them at counter revoution or whatever that fail of a festival was & they were awesome & BLINK are my all time fav band :)
