What's In My Makeup Bag - Bali Edition

Marisa Robinson Beauty Blogger What's In My Bali Makeup Bag

I am renowned for overpacking. I tend to like to take all my favourite things 'just in case'. I remember a few years ago before I was due to head to Europe I had a couple of friends come over for a packing intervention where they unpacked and repacked my whole suitcase with only the things I would need!

One thing travelling over the years has taught me is how little you can live with and how much 'stuff' we consume and hoard. While I haven't mastered a minimalist lifestyle quite yet I am getting better at packing light.

In this post I am going to share what I am packing in my makeup case for my upcoming trip to Bali. It may seem like a lot but last year I took about 3 times this amount and I didn't even use it all so this is only the essentials! Keep in mind this is just makeup, I have a separate bag for skincare, haircare and toiletries which I have also condensed down to essentials.

DESTINATION: BALI
CLIMATE: TROPICAL / HUMID
I went to Bali last year and it was hot and humid, which is going to make a nice change to this cold, winter weather we are currently having in Sydney. But one mistake I made was taking a lot of cream based products: eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers etc. While I love these products for a sun kissed glow, trust me when I say most of what I put on my face melted straight off or looked more 'oily' than dewy. They key is definitely to lock your makeup down and I personally found using powders and setting sprays was the way to go. Also, while I love makeup I definitely want a quick and easy makeup look so I can spend more time at the beach and bar!
 

MAKEUP BAG
Mecca Jet Set Travel Bag - Blush Pink
I have SO many makeup bags but they are either too big or too small. This one from Mecca had received a lot of hype and was now available in blush so it was a sign I had to make it mine. This case is made of 2 clear plastic compartments that can be used to store all your beauty essentials, all while being able to see what’s inside! I gave myself a challenge to only take this case filled with makeup and while it may have taken me three hours to swatch my favourite products and narrow down my options, I have successfully filled the case with my must have beauty products.

Primer: First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothie Primer + Moisturiser - this primer is beautiful. Not only does it smell amazing but it makes my skin hydrated and fresh.
Foundation: Cover FX Natural Finish Foundation - this creates a beautiful base
Concealer: Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer - hopefully my relaxing holiday will eliminate the dark circles but if not there is always this Boi-ing concealer.
Illuminator: Becca Cosmetics 'Opal' Shimmering Skin Perfector - this cult classic is perfect for mixing with my foundation for a sun kissed glow or used solo on the high points of the face.
Powder: Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation - this not only provides a bit of extra coverage but locks my look in place.
Cover FX Click Stick Baton: This is perfect for on the go and you can customise what clicks it contains. I have inserted a Cover Click Foundation so I can do touch ups throughout the day and the Enhance Click in 'Bubbly' for a glow mo!


EYES + LASHES
Eyeshadow Primer: Too Faced Shadow Insurance - I like to prep my lids before applying my eyeshadow and this does the trick!
Palette: Kylie Cosmetics Take Me On Vacation Palette - If you saw my latest tutorial (click here to check it out) you will know exactly why I chose this palette. The shadows are beautifully pigmented, blendable and come in tropical inspired shades!

Pencil: Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Brow Pencil* - the fastest and most fool proof way to fill my brows is with the Goof Proof Brow Pencil!

CHEEKS + FACE

Contour: Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Quickie Contour Stick* - perfect for on the go, this contour stick glides on and blends out beautifully.
