Hello! Today’s post is on my travel/no brush makeup that I tend to pack when I go away. As the title suggests it is super easy cream or liquid makeup that you don’t need a brush to apply. These products create a simple, dewy look perfect for a weekend away. I hope this helps you if you are packing and need some travel friendly products that don’t need brushes (and hence don’t take up as much space!).
For base I have the NYX BB Perfection in a Tube. The great thing about packing a BB cream is that it can be applied with fingers and is easier to spread and blend than a normal foundation. This BB cream has light to medium coverage and gives a lovely dewy base.
For concealer I packed my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I try to pack a concealer that is fairly high coverage so I don’t have to use the BB cream if I don’t want, but also so it can cover undereye circles and blemishes.
For blush (and sometimes lips) I like the Benefit Benetint. Now I know this isn’t cruelty free (it’s an old product for me), but it is a great multi-use product to pack and can be blended easily with fingers.
To finish the base I like using a cream highlight. This one by Nude by Nature is beautiful. A cream highlighter like this can also be used on the eyes!
I did pack a stick eyeshadow. I really like using stick eyeshadows for an all over colour on the lids. They are generally super easy to apply and blend. I love this NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha for a gorgeous bronze look.
Mascara is a must. At the moment I am still using the Soap and Glory Thick and Fast.
For brows using an all in one product like a tinted gel is the way to go for packing light. I cannot stop using this Essence Make Me Brow.
For another lip option I packed the NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee. I didn’t have any special occasions planned for the weekend away, so a gloss was enough to cover any situation.
So those are the products I tend to pack when I go away for a weekend and need some simple products that can create a beautiful fresh look without brushes. What are your favourite makeup products to travel with that don’t need a brush? I would love to know in the comments below.
