What's in my travel makeup bag?

I just arrived back to London from a one week trip to Hungary, which was amazing but disappointingly short. Before I put everything back to its storage, I will show you what makeup I brought with me for my holiday. I tried to be realistic, with the amount I took, and I ended up using everything at the end. Yaaayyy!:)

For The Face

 Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 100 Ivory
This foundation is a bit too dark and shiny for me on its own, but it creates the perfect shade and coverage mixed in with my MAC Studio Fix Fluid.
 MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC15
My absolute favourite full-coverage foundation has to be this one. I thinned it out with the above mentioned Wake Me Up, and this mix seemed to agree with my skin type very well and stayed on all day while still looking natural.
 MAC Studio finish Concealer in NC15
I love using this full coverage concealer for blemishes and redness that might still show through after foundation. 
 Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer in Light
This concealer is great for under the eyes, not heavy and the peachy undertone counteracts the blue veins under my eyes.
 Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly
This has to be one of my favourite concealers ever, but I only had a couple uses left in this and wanted to use it up on my holiday. It has a good coverage and this shade is also perfect for highlighting areas on my face.
 MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder in Light Plus
I use this powder to matt down my face and keep my foundation and concealer in place for the whole day. It's a must-have in my makeup bag.
 Soap&Glory One Heck Of A Blot Powder
I like to buff through my face and apply a translucent powder under my eyes, and this works perfectly for that. It looks natural and I don't get oily throughout the day when I use this powder.

For The Cheeks
  MAC Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze
I use this matte bronzer to put some colour and warmth back into my face after foundation and powder. I think I'm gonna hit pan on it really soon...
 The Balm Highlighter in Mary Lou-Manizer
My favourite champagne highlighter that I use for my face, as well as on the eyelids.
 Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink
Although I adore this pink blush I only used it one day because in gloomy weather too much shine on the cheeks look strange in my opinion. 
 MAC Blush in Melba
I took this peachy-pink blush with me because it is the perfect everyday blush that goes with any eye-look.

For The Eyes
 Urban Decay Naked Palette
I decided to take the original Naked palette with me because it gives me the freedom to create both subtle daytime and smoky evening looks. My two favourites are Naked and Sidecar.
 Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten
This champagne-coloured cream shadow looks great alone and it's also the perfect base for any eye-look that I would create with the Naked palette. 
 MAC Eyeshadow in Omega  
I love this shadow as a crease colour or to use in my brows.
 Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
I find applying a gel liner from a little pot like this much easier than using felt-tip liners which I have to realise I'm absolutely rubbish at. I use a thin liner brush with this product, and I find it easier to control the thickness of the line, as well as drawing on the flick. 
 Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Damsel
This dark brown eyeliner is great for that effortless smudged out liner look, that makes the eyelashes appear fuller and thicker. 
 Soap&Glory Archery Eyebrow Pencil in Blondeshell
This product is great to fill in sparse brows and create a perfectly arched eyebrow-look.
 L'Oréal Volume Million Lashes Mascara
I use this mascara at the moment, and I really love it. It separates, lengthens and volumes my lashes. Couldn't ask for more.
 Benefit They're Real Mini Mascara
I took this travel sized They're Real with me because of the wedding I had to attend. I knew that I will get emotional and have a little cry during the ceremony, and this mascara is the one I can always trust in such cases. I applied it over my L'Oréal on the top lashes and only a coat of this for the bottom lashes, and it lasted from 11AM until 4 in the morning without smudging or crumbling. There is no need for me to buy a separate waterproof mascara, because this one works perfectly in teary-eyed situations.

For The Lips
I usually take way too many lip products and don't end up using half of them, but this time I learnt from my previous mistakes and took one nude and one bight shade only. 
 Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in Nudist
For my colouring this lipstick is the perfect nude that goes with everything. I love that it's hydrating and I can apply it without a mirror.
 Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in Rendezvous
I love orange lips for spring and summer and this is a very comfortable, creamy bright orange lipstick that makes my green eyes pop. I mentioned this lip product previously here along with two other orange lipstick favourites.
 Carmex Lip Balm in Strawberry
I love Carmex for my lips, because it keeps them hydrated and chap-free. I'm using a Strawberry-scented one at the moment.

I could still downsize from this amount but I'm pretty proud of myself that I didn't take half of my collection with me, just for options, you know... :D

What makeup products would you pack for a one week holiday?
