Carry On Make-Up

There's nothing like a hand-luggage-only trip to rattle down the things you actually can't live without when it comes to beauty. A last minute escapade to Stockholm last week prompted that familiar feeling of what make-up should I bring out of this necessarily huge stash of products, but for once it was actually easy to cherry pick the favourites thanks to recent discoveries and die-hard make-up saviours. Things like foundation, mascara; the staples in make-up routines, are easily enough chosen, but it's things like eye-shadows and lipsticks that make it through the survival of the fittest and only the best, most versatile make it into that zip-lock bag come flight day. Not one for light packing, but similarly not the kind either to buy excess luggage for the sake of a few extra bottles (for extortinate amounts), here's what made it in: 

Glossier Boy Brow in Blonde | New to my make-up bag after visiting the Glossier pop-up in Marylebone this month; now a can't-live-without product (I still use the L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Brow Artist underneath) but it works wonders for (natural-looking) brow thickness.
The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation in Bali Vanilla | Longstanding foundation favourite for dewy, fresh (as it claims) skin; not drying so post-flight skin friendly and keeps skin looking like skin...!
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Ivory | Doubles up as a touch-up concealer that you can take around with you and has really buildable coverage. I have a shade slightly lighter than my foundation so it brightens, too.
Kiehls Ultra Facial Toner | Not make-up per-se, but a pre make-up essential nonetheless and a range I've recently gone back to because my skin seems to get on with it. 
Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser | As above. Refreshing, deeply cleansing and suitable for all skin types. 
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour in Telluride | My most-worn colour and winter-party friendly (but works just as well in the daytime, too. Most importantly, a hydrating formula that doesn't dry out your lips.  
Trish McEvoy Eye Base | Instant eye-brightening when you need it and doubles up as a primer for eyeshadow and eyeliner (since I've been using this my eyeliner has become much more obedient).
REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist | City-break essential for protecting against dirty air and it sets your make-up . So refreshing on a flight and the smell is very reviving after sitting in stale air for hours. 
Bobbi Brown Bronzer | Bringing some colour back into my winter skin and as subtle, or striking, as you want to build it up. I also use the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecting Highlighter in Moonlight on my cheekbones. 
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara | Petite in size but does the job better than most; this has become an everyday essential recently and I am very fussy with mascaras.
