What's in my travel make-up?

This week I am off on a little UK break with my dad, enjoying some of the lovely sunshine we are having here in Wales at the moment! I'm not a huge fan of the heat, in fact I much prefer winter - so I'll be relaxing in the shade just taking time to 'chill' and have some me time! This time around I've tried my hardest to pack lightly and I think I've done pretty well considering this is for a whole week! It probably has something to do with the fact that when it's this hot I don't tend to wear a great deal of make-up as it just doesn't stay put! 

Make-up bag - Poundland (how cute is this for £1?!) 
Brush holder - Banggood*

Brush-wise I decided to take this handy blue brush travel case that separates into two brush holders (very similar to the sigma holders, only a fraction of the price) - which I know will come in handy when I won't have a whole desk to get ready at in the mornings. Although to some, 9 brushes for one week may sound a bit excessive - I think I did well narrowing it down this far. 

For face brushes I have my foundation brush, my mineral powder brush and stipple brush from elf and this fab angled face brush from ebay! I've also packed a couple of eye brushes including my sigma e25 blending brush and some other eye shadow brushes. Finally I've included my flat topped small foundation brush which works amazingly for concealer and was only £2 from ebay

  1. I think that's very good for a week :D
    That brush holder is fantastic as well, keeps the brushes away from the make up and doubles as little pots when you're doing your make up.

  2. The brush holder looks really handy :) The sleek face kit is a good idea, everything you need in one space.
