What’s in my Day Trip Make Up Bag? Aka – The Tardis!

So today ladies, we are talking day trip make up bags!

I don’t mean a visit to Alton Towers, I mean when you have a long day out and need to look pretty! In my case this was a few weeks ago when I was going to London. It was an early train so I took my make up with me so I could apply it towards the end of the journey.

I bought this little Mulberry make up bag years ago at the Outlet store for about £40. It has served me well! It’s only 12cm x 9cm x 7cm but because it has super stretchy leather, I can stuff all of my favourite bits into it.


I like the fact it’s not too wide – it’s a cuboid kind of shape so although it stretches width ways, it isn’t too long.

This is EVERYTHING I got into my make up bag. I was trying to cover all eventualities!

    Yes, but does your makeup bag travel in time? Haha~

    I have a little makeup bag in my backpack and in a purse. They both have some kind of lipgloss in them, hair ties, a mirror and bobby pins. No real makeup beyond that. My backpack one has deodorant in it for after my Gym class though…

    My day make up bag? A pocket mirror and my EOS lipbalm. That’s it. Shame on me! xD
