I feel like it's become a tradition now to share my travel beauty bag whenever I'm off on holiday and when it comes to staying in the UK, it's very easy to overpack and not consider how many products you're actually taking. Here is how I like to pack everything I need into two neat (and not over stuffed!) bags.
First up is makeup and I like to keep everything simple when it comes to the base. I choose the classic IT Cosmetics CC Cream* because this can be adapted to both day and night looks depending on what concealer I use and I of course pack my Hourglass palette which has all the powder, bronzer and blusher I need. Saying this, I do like to make sure I have a couple of different colour ways, so the Nars Orgasm Blusher* is coming with me along with a red lipstick and a pink offering like the Charlotte Tilbury The Duchess* too.
I'm a sucker for anything miniature, so the Milk Makeup Werk Cheek and Lip Stick is coming along as this can be used in multiple places around the face and it hardly takes up any room at all in the makeup bag. The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is also a firm favourite in my daily makeup routine anyway, so it would be rude not to bring this along as well.
When it comes to skincare, I like to keep things concise as it's easy to get carried away, I bring a double cleanse including the Origins Original Skin Makeup Removing Jelly and a micellar water to get rid of any stubborn makeup. Packing a nourishing moisturiser is essential to keep any dry patches at bay and my Glossier Invisible Shield SPF will help keep my skin protected during the day when we're out exploring. For a luxe treat, I like to pack a hydrating lip treatment and a face mask for any evening when I've got a spare 10 minutes and my complexion is in dire need of some TLC.
Shampoo and conditioner is where I struggle as I tend to have huge bottles of the stuff dotted around my bathroom, so I have to decant them into smaller containers to fit into my travel beauty bag. I also like to pack the Living Proof Dry Shampoo* as it's the perfect size for a week away along side my IGK Beach Club Spray which keeps my locks volumised and styled.
