My Travel Make Up Bag

As you're reading this I'm still in sunny old Spain. If you're following me on any of my social media you'll know what I'm up to. This is a scheduled post. I might not even have wifi there. At least I'll have sun and a pool. Okay I'll stop making you all jealous. This bag is Benefit btw.
So these are what I decided to bring with me. Assuming I did. At the time I was writing this post I considered dropping some bits.
Avéne Thermal Spray - I read on another blog if you put this in a fridge it's really refreshing in the heat but I decided not to bring it in the end cause it took up too much space. I usually use it after a workout or to help take off my make up.
Body Shop Body Butter -  this smells so good and I can only imagine how good it will smell in the heat. It's a floral scent and the tub is tiny so it doesn't take up too much space in my luggage.
Boots Eye Cream -  Left this behind. I'll have a post coming on this soon. 
Clearasil - I decided I could live without this for the week and took it out but I really like this cause it helps improve acne scarring and keeps spots at bay.
Garnier After Sun - pretty self explanatory. I love this. It really soothes your skin when you step in from the sun. I turn red and then tan. I rarely burn but I'm so pale I like to be cautious in the sun. I'll be purchasing sun screen over there.
Garnier Moisturiser - gotta keep my skin hydrated. I love this moisturiser. It's the normal to dry skin one and it smells really nice and dries into your skin instantly. If I'm not wearing a BB cream I'll just through this on.
Optimals Oxygen Boost - this is a face product with SPF in it. I've never used it before and I'm not sure if it's a moisturiser or what it actually is but it will protect my face.
Tangle Teezer - Can't be without my trusty little tangle teezer. I have a post on this here.
Seventeen, NYX, Revlon - Yes I have three lip products here. I need choice and they're all a different variation of pink and they really complete an outfit and ahh this is very restrained. I wanted to through in two more but stopped myself.
Maybelline BB Cream - This BB cream is actually too dark for me even though it's the palest. I'm hoping it will match when I get home though. I probably won't even use it with the heat.
Benefit Erase Paste - Just to cover that bit of scarring on my face. It's nasty. I've done a full post on this here.
Benefit Powda Wowza - Okay I have this a disgusting length of time but i've only started to hit pan and Benefit is expensive. This is handy for traveling because it has a bronzer and two blushes in it. I've blogged about this before here.
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil & Maybelline Brow Drama - gotta keep on top of those eyebrows. The browdrama isn't great. It's barely tinted but it works well enough to hold the brow hair in place. The eyebrow pencil is my favourite thing and I love the little brush.
Bourjois 1 Second Mascara - Mascara really opens up your eyes and I love this one. It curls your eyelashes and dries instantly. It doesn't create 'spider legs' and has a really great wand. I have a post on this coming soon.
So there you have it. This is what I initially packed for my holiday. I did remove two or three bits cause they weren't necessary and I need all the room for shopping ;)
