What's in my make up bag? [Short Trip Edition.]

I'm on a train going on an adventure today, and I won't be back until tomorrow! Which meant I needed to scoop up my make up essentials and toss them in a bag with some PJ's before I left this morning. This is also a pretty nifty test run for my travel make up picks, and this little lot looks like it'll need only the teeniest of adjustments and no matter where in the world i'm off I think I know exactly what i'll be reaching for.

I fell in love with the Urban Decay Naked2 Basics palette when it arrived. The shades are matte yet beautiful and soft and perfect for adding a subtle amount of colour, and it looks great teamed with the jet black Kat Von D and Urban Decay liners. I need my Phwoarr Paint to tackle my perpetual '4am bedtime' dark circles. Charlotte Tilbury and Bare Minerals finish everything off nicely. I'm taking two lip products with me, the Urban Decay mini which is a really soft nude, and the Baby Lips is a really nice bright pink balm. One thing my little go-away kit needs, is a light BB cream, so if you have any good recommendations, let me know!

I'm rather excited to try out the Kat Von D wipes, and this dinky little two pack sample that I got with a Sephora order, and the pack is perfect for this trip. Other than that, the Real Techniques brushes and Topshop tweezers are my ultimate tools, and the mini Benefit eye cream is a perfect size for travelling. P.S. Yes, the Rituals deodorant is mens, but I didn't realise that when I ordered it online. Whoops! I quite like the smell anyway, and it's a little travel mini so i'll chuck it in my bag.

Perfume wise, I chose my trusty Illamasqua Freak. This is by far my favourite perfume, and I actually have two of the larger bottles as well. This is one of the scents I plan on decanting a bit of into a teeny spray bottle so that I can take it travelling with me. It's definitely a perfect scent for autumn/winter but I like it that much i'll wear it all year round.  [Check out my review?]

Catseye London 'Coyote' flat bag. 
The Coyote flat bag is no longer on the Catseye London website, but you can get the Coyote Coin Purse or the flat pouch in a few different styles. I actually picked mine up in TK Maxx for around £3.

Well, there we have it! My little 'face to go' kit.
