What's In my Make Up Bag for Business/Travel - Video!

Ha ha! Another travel make up video!
I actually tried to vlog my outfits but the lighting where the mirror was in my hotel room was quite pathetic and everything just looked black and grey so another time!

I had admitted in my video I had over packed my make up and knew it, but below are the products I actually used the most.
By day 3 I set this routine in place and stuck with it until landing back home.

Dior BB Cream – I kept forgetting the tiny primer- was a nice easy base. The mirror I had in the hotel was very far from the desk so I couldn’t really see what I was doing as closely as I prefer so I slapped this on daily and hoped for the best. Easy to blend with a nice finish being demi matte. No powder needed.
Laura Mercier concealer for the face and By Terry for under the eyes.
My go to blush became Chanel’s Espiegal, the nice punch of muted peach was just enough to brighten my very tired face.
On occasion if I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and saw a ghost I swept some Chanel bronzer on my temples but not every day.
Mascara surprise was Benefit’s They’re Real. I had a mini tube in the past which I was not impressed with but this time around I actually enjoyed it! I will be keeping this sample for a while! Shadows were just a mix from my Dior palette, and lips were finished off with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine in Boy ( I forgot to show this in the video!) I had never used this lipstick before this trip but it has become my new go to everyday shade. My lips but better! Love it!


Hope you enjoyed this peak into my make up bag! :D


  1. I haven't watched the video yet, but, somehow, you've already made me want to raid your makeup stash. Lovely!

  2. Thank you for solving the mystery of the Laura Mercier concealer bumps! I couldn't figure out how they were getting in there and they were driving me a little crazy too. Great video!

  3. Love the look of Espiegal, I have begun my obsession with Chanel blushes and it isn't showing any signs of slowing down. I wear Boy to work a lot, it frustrates me that it doesn't last on the lips but the colour is very pretty :)

  4. I really enjoyed your video :) I kept chuckling about your frustration at the Chanel C's! A really expensive product shouldn't have that packaging flaw :( I also used the RSVP cream shadow constantly (probably not as much as you though) and there's BARELY a dent in it.... That stuff seriously lasts forever! Hope you do more videos~

  5. i JUST hit pan on RSVP today!!! i had to comment back! just took a YR T.T

  6. Boy is so perfect for work! im loving it!
