A few weeks ago i went to Paris for a few days with friends (a perfect restbite from A-level stress!) and as you will be able to see, i am awful at deciding what to take. I always like to pack multiple options just in case i change my mind when im there i.e. 7 lipsticks for 3/4 days, oops. This means my makeup bag is usually full to the brim and bursting with wonderful makeup. So here is, the slightly over top, whats in my travel makeup bag- Paris edition!

For base i took my current everyday choices; Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, Benefit Erase Paste (for when my undereyes need extra brightening) and Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.
For cheeks i took my 3 favourites; Nars Laguna Bronzer, Sleek Contour Kit and Mac Well Dressed Blusher.

For eyes i took the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, which is perfect for travelling and is my current go to. Its really natural too, which just one shimmery shade in the line-up of six. Just in case i fancied a change, i took two other options; Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze and Rimmel Scandalayes Eyeshadow Stick in 002 Bulletproof Beige. Standard. I decided this holiday was the perfect opportunity to use my mini Benefit They're Real mascara; a rediscovery that i am loving! I slipped in 3 eyeliners; Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner in Black, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Rockstar and Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 005 Nude giving me the options of classic black, a less harsh alternative and a nude for the waterline. As this kind of fits into the category, ill quickly mention that the brow product of choice was the Rimmel Professional Eyeshadow Pencil in 002 Hazel.

Now, lipsticks are where i really go mad and i always find it impossible to limit myself to only a few choices, especially as im not really a massive lipgloss gal. Here are the seven in question; Mac Rebel, Rimmel Kate Moss in 107, 03 and 12, Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Big Bang and Luna and Avon Lipstick in Carnation. A whole range of colours depending on which one im feeling. 

For tools i kept it mainly Real Techniques as always, with a few extras thrown in from Mac, Avon And Elf and then my Shu Umera Eyelash Curlers.

What sort of packer are you? 
Essentials only or product and choice crazy.
