Makeup & Skin Care Products I am Carrying For an Indian Wedding

I am travelling for a friend’s wedding for a few days. Thought I’d show you what all makeup and skin care stuff that I am carrying. It may seem a lot but then I have three big functions to attend and I have tried to streamline as much as I could. Phew! 🙂 You can get palettes done for travelling purposes, but I don’t seem to use stuff from palettes otherwise, so I skipped that idea.

Starting with the essential brushes. Blender brush (MAC 217), Blush brush, Powder Brush, Pencil brush (MAC 219), Flat shader brush (MAC 239).


travel makeup brushes

Lipsticks & Glosses
A n*de gloss (for smokey eyes), a baby pink gloss (for a day time look), a hot pink lipstick (Chanel l’exuberante –night/day), deep coral lipstick (MAC Crosswires).

Blush and Highlighter :
A hot pink cream blush (MAC) and highlighter cum bronzer duo (Sleek).

travel cheek makeup


Face Makeup :

Primer, concealer, and foundation, and a compact (not in pic).

Sleek neutral eyeshadow palette (this would take care of both my day and night eye makeup and also my brows), a shimmery black shadow, eyeshadow primer.

travel eyes makeup

Mascara, eye pencil, sharpener, lash curler and sharpener.

And that’s the skincare that I always carry:

A day cream, face wash, blotting sheets and sunscreen.

travel skin care

This is the travel kit that I carry in my handbag. I have dry skin, so I mostly spend time doing my skin care routine in plane. Or else my skin feels stretched and I get breakouts because of ultra dry air in the aircraft.

Eye and face makeup remover, a moisturizing cream, cotton pads, under eye cream, lip balm and body lotion. All in travel containers. 🙂  I also carry Fabindia rose water spray bottle.
