What's In My Travel Makeup Bag?

Tomorrow, in the early hours of the morning, I will be hopping on a flight heading to Geneva before driving to the French Alps for some skiing! I don't usually wear much makeup when I'm out skiing, sometimes I don't wear any but I usually do in the evening. I've generally packed makeup that can't get smashed (apart from the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's, but they're quite sturdy!) as my ski bag is pretty flimsy and I'm not packing a £30 foundation if there's a chance it will get smashed in transit! I've packed Mac Face and Body Foundation, the packaging is a plastic bottle and this foundation is lightweight and non drying on my skin. I've been having so many problems with my skin being ridiculously dry lately and in -3 degrees, I don't think it's going to get better so I knew this foundation was one of the only ones that would be good to take! I've packed my standard Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer because, why wouldn't I? It's the bomb! I've then got the Bourjois Java Powder as it's a loose powder so it cannot get smashed or broken. For my brows I'm taking the Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil as it's super quick to use and is generally a really lovely product. For my eyes, rather than packing any eyeshadows and risking it, I've packed my two favourite Maybelline Colour Tattoo's in On and On Bronzer and Pink Gold, these are great to just apply really quickly but they are beautiful and last all day! I've then got my favourite Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara. I've packed two lip balms as my lips get dry in England so they're going to be hell in The Alps! I've got the Korres Lip Butter in Guava (a new favourite of mine!) and the Burts Bees Lip Balm for when I'm on the slopes as it's easier to use when I've got gloves on!
