Ohai! Today I thought I would share with you what makeup I’ve brought home to the North with me over the Easter break! To be honest this is abit of a filler post, but I love seeing what others take with them when they travel/go on holiday.
Now my personal challenge was to bring as little as I could. I usually cart tonnes of makeup home when I visit, so this time I stuck to the “essentials”.
I probably went a bit overboard with the brushes, but ah well! They’re kept in 2 novelty mugs on my desk. The Jack Skellington mug contains face brushes while the Turtle mug contains eye brushes, eyeliners, mascara, long lipsticks.

This may seem like alot, but to me it’s minimal! I like to have choice when putting my makeup on, not just be stuck with the same lip colour every day. Now I do have 3 Urban Decay Palettes which I keep up here (Naked 2, Book of Shadows NYC & 15th Anniversary) so i don't have to bring eye shadows (nor primer or black eyeliner, Hello NYC BOS), but i couldn't resist bringing some Sugarpill.
As far as transport in concerned, I used an old Boudoir Prive box to carry my makeup products, and a GlossyBox to carry my toiletry bits (I have most things such as shower gel already up here).
How much makeup do you usually take when your travel? What are your essentials?
