This weekend I’m off on my final trip of the year to London. It’s mainly just a festive trip to do some last minute Christmas shopping under all of the lights and enjoy some time away before the end of the year. I’ve never been up in December before so I’m excited to be amongst the atmosphere and get lost in the crowds of Christmas shoppers. I thought I would show you all some of the products I’ve been loving recently and what I’ll be packing in my festive travel makeup bag.
A foundation I have been using non-stop lately is the Bourjois Healthy Mix. I absolutely love how radiant this makes my skin look and it lasts so well throughout the day. The coverage is super impressive and I only ever get compliments on my skin when I’m wearing this one! For a bit of extra glow I have been applying the Nars Copacabana Highlighter for that beautiful festive shimmer. This is the most beautiful champagne liquid highlighter and so Christmassy. To add a bit of colour back into my skin I have been using the Lancome Teint Idole Cushion Foundation* as a bronzer, it’s so easy to blend and has a dewy, soft focus finish.
A new palette I recently picked up mainly to pop in my festive travel makeup bag is the NYX Nude Palette. I’m not really a fan of the branding but the shadows are such good quality and the shades are just beautiful. I use all six and it’s the perfect little compact for travelling around with. I always take my Mayebelline Lash Sensational Mascara and Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers along with me as they are complete makeup bag staples.
For lips I have chosen two of my festive favourites. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes is a lovely day time mauve that feels weightless on the lips. For something a little more special in the evening I can’t miss out on wearing Charlotte Tilbury Love Liberty as this is the ultimate Christmas Lipstick! I just love them both.
I couldn’t not mention this adorable travel size pot of the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm! It’s super cute and the perfect luxury oil cleanser to use after a wintery Christmas shopping day.
What would be in your festive travel makeup bag?
