My Travel Makeup Kit (or what I took to #PBEVENT 2013)

Packed makeup bag

This article was born when I shared the above photo on Instagram the night before I jetted off for a week on the Gold Coast, and asked if anyone would be interested to know what makeup I was bringing with me.

I travelled to the Gold Coast to attend the ProBlogger Conference, a 2 day event that included a fancy, tropical themed evening function. It’s important for me to be well presented in the makeup stakes, because as a beauty blogger, makeup is a big part of how I brand myself.

My husband and daughter came with me for a family holiday, and we had pre-arranged 2 “nice” dinners. For the rest of the trip, there was a good chance that I would be wearing little to no makeup.

Typically when I travel, I pack much lighter than this, but here’s what I brought:
