A Summer Of Travel Make Up Routine

21 Jul 2014

As you probably know (from the amount I've mentioned it) I'm going to a few countries this summer. We are doing a mixture of train and plane travelling from London to France and on to Austria where we're in the perfect spot to drive to neighboring countries. I know, while travelling and with the summer weather, I'm not going to want to go over board at all with the make up as well as being limited without the amount I can pack so here is my travel friendly everyday make up that I will be wearing while I'm away!

To start with I applied my L'oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream as a primer focusing it mainly around my nose, the middle of my forehead and my chin where my pores are very visible. I then took my The Body Shop BB Cream. I said I would do a review on this and I will have it up by next week so look out for that. It's a very low coverage foundation so I think it will be great for travelling as it's so light weight. I used my 17 Stay Time Concealer in Extra Fair  for under my eyes and on any blemishes. Because the BB Cream is such a low coverage, I did have to do a lot of concealing but I did leave some of my blemishes un-concealed as I was going through quite a big breakout at this point. I did an all over bronze with my L'oreal Glam Bronze Bronzer to give my skin a natural glow. I'm not a big fan of blush and while I do have a cream blush that I would love to wear, for a quick, natural colour I use my ELF blush in Candid Coral. I have rosy cheeks as it is so I don't feel I need a pink or coral blush for it to look natural.
For my eyes, I didn't want to do anything to crazy- I just wanted something quick so I used MAC's Woodwinked all over the lid and into the crease. I added my Rimmel Kohl Liner in Nude in my waterline to brighten my eyes and added my Maybelline The Falsies Mascara to my lashes. For my eye brows, I used my Maybelline Brow Pencil in Blonde. I feel I have really misjudged this product as I didn't really like it to start off with as I felt it was too waxy but with a light hand and the handy spooly on the end of the pencil, I managed to get my eyebrows looking very natural.
To finish off I set all my make up with The Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Powder.T I have very mixed feelings about this powder so let me know if you'd like me to do a review. For the moment, it's fine and mattifies my face and sets everything in place. 
In the overview photo of the products I used, I didn't include a lip option as I was very indecisive. I was definitely not opting for a lip gloss as the attract the sun and lead to burnt lips which isn't good. I decided on the Collection Cream Puff in Fairy Cake 3. The staying power of these is not the best but the pigmentation and colour of these are too good not to wear. 
Finally, I used my Mac Fix+ to refresh my face and I think this will come in very handy while travelling if I'm a little hot as it can cool me down as well as helping my make up from going cakey.
And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this post and what are some Summer make up staples for you?
Hope you're doing great,
