I’ve been lucky enough to make the big journey across the ocean to grand ol’ Paris, and here’s what I’ve brought with me…
To me, traveling light is crucial. I don’t check my luggage, so everything that I bring must fit in a carry on. I’m also planning on purchasing some new Parisian beauty while I’m here, so I want enough room to bring back some products. That means packing smart, even when it comes to my makeup bag.
For my base, I’ve brought with me my Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15 and Urban Decay’s Naked Skin – the perfect combination for a light face. Because I’m using such a light base, a primer is necessary. I suffer from a lot of redness so a travel sample of the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer in the green shade works perfectly for me. I’ve also brought along my YSL’s Touche Eclat Neutralizer in green in case I need any extra colour correcting on blemishes. I top off my entire base with a travel size of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light.
The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette is the perfect travel companion – it includes a full eye look, bronzer, blush AND highlighter. I prime my eyes with the Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, and fill in my brows with the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Blonde.
Finally this mini Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara has really been wowing me, so much so that I’m considering purchasing a full size!
And last but certainly not least, for lips, I’ve brought with me the Fresh Suger Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Treatment and Sisley’s Phyto-Lip Twist in 2-Baby for a plump pink Parisian pout!
All of this is tucked in to my all time favourite Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Bag! Et Voila! My Paris travel makeup bag c’est complete!
