The Travelling Saviours

Hi everyone,
For today's post I wanted to do something a little different. Since the warmer weather is upon us, so are the holidays and that means travelling. If you are anything like me you over pack in every category clothes, shoes, toiletries and especially makeup. That's why today I am going to be sharing with you some makeup palettes that make traveling that whole lot easier. Enjoy!

Sephora Wishes Come True Palette
This palette has your whole face and eyes sorted. The packaging is very small and compact with six eye shadows, two highlighters and a blush. All of the eye shadows are super neutral three are matte and three are shimmer so you get a great variety. The blush is super wearable and it would suit every skin tone, it's very build-able also. For the two highlights, they are just breathless. There is a more golden one and a more white one and if you wanted to, you could mix them. This palette is great for someone who wants all there powder products in one space.

Urban Decay Naked Flush
Urban Decay are famous for their amazing palettes, including this one. The naked flushed palettes have a bronzer, blush and highlight with a mirror all in a small compact. All are super pigmented and since there are different shades in the Naked flushed palettes, you can pick the one best suited to you. This is perfect for travelling because you get a mirror so it's easy for on the go, it is magnetic so nothing will ever mix with the powders and each powder is amazing so each powder will get used just as much.

Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit
This is so so so much like Nars and I am liking it. This is a super small compact with two matte powders. One is a matte white and the other is a matte contour/bronzer shade. For me, I use the white as a face powder because it's not overly pigmented but it's weirdly mattifying and for the contour/bronzer shade, I use it around the perimeter of my face to add a little warmth. If you are into a super natural eye this is great too because they make great eye shadows. Just apply the white all over the lid, inner corner and brow bone then put the brown in the crease for a super natural look. This again comes with a mirror which is super handy. It comes in too shades this product so you can get one to suit your skin tone.

Artdeco Most Wanted Brown Palette
This is the perfect palette for anyone who loves a good, old, classic neutral eye. This is the product with the bulkiest packaging, which is not idea, but it is worth that extra space. It does come with a very reasonable mirror and the shadows themselves are amazing. It comes with a great range of neutrals from light to dark, cool and warm, matte and shimmers so it has great variety. I also think it's a good alternative from the naked palettes too because I feel like the shades in the palette complement each other a lot better then some of the shades in the naked palettes.

MUA LUXE Utopia Palette
I love this product because it is so cute and small. This is an eye palette which includes 10 baked eye shadows, all in super neutral shades. The packaging is small but very sleek, and inside it comes with a huge mirror and the product, no extra space for one of those stupid brushes *Thank Goodness*. The eye shadows themselves are a bit on the powdery side, but they have great pigmentation, last a while with primer underneath and are very bendable. This product only costs £8 so there is no need to break the bank.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know whether you own any of these palettes or your go-to travel friendly palette. Have a great day!
