I recently took a trip to the Lake District with my friends where we stayed in a static caravan for a week. I had such an amazing time walking through all the quaint towns and enjoying the fresh air! On the contrary to what BBC weather predicted, the sun was up and shining every day! I even got sunburnt on my shoulders and the top of my forehead, which is not the best look I must admit. As a result of the good weather I tended to sway towards a much more natural look and the rest of my make up was more for 'emergency' reasons (whichever emergency requires 3 eyeshadow blending brushes..) Anyway, I thought this was a great opportunity to show what is in my travel make up bag! 

For my base, I brought two options (completely unnecessary, I know) which were L'oreal True Match and Vichy Dermablend. They are two of my favourites and reasonably priced too! They give a medium to full coverage so I didn't really use them that much but when I did I used my ELF Studio Small Stippling brush and as a second option I brought the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. For concealer I brought my well loved Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and the Soap & Glory Kick Ass concealer which I only use for the translucent powder (applied with the MAC 186 Stippling brush). To warm up the face it could only be the Soap & Glory Solar Powder Bronzer, this is one of my all time favourites as is so easy to apply and it blends out nicely too! I used the MAC 168 angled contour to apply that, as well as the MAC MSF in Lightscapade.

To even out my eyelids I brought the MAC Painterly Paint Pot which is a flesh toned base which prevents creasing and makes shadows more vibrant. Although I didn't wear any eyeshadows, I did bin my Urban Decay Naked Basics palette which is great for travelling and has a good sized mirror. I brought my eBay brushes just incase I did want to go for an eye look. I also brought Omega eyeshadow from MAC and an angled brush for my brows.

I didn't bring any lipstick, just my trusty Carmex as my lips get so dry in the sun! 

Thanks for reading! I'd love to know what's in your travel make up bag this summer.
