Travel Beauty Kit!

You may have seen over on Twitter that the Lady Boys of Bangkok have finally landed in the UK! It was a relatively smooth journey from the homeland of Bangkok for the glamorous Lady Boys, and of course they packed their travel essentials - starting off with that all important make up bag! Obviously for performances the Lady Boys like to glam their look up with as much glitter, colour and wow factor as they can squeeze on to their beautifully contoured faces, but for a 12 hour+ flight it seems the lighter the make up, the better! 

Here is a little wish list of the must haves for the gruelling journey:

Kiko BB Compact Glow
Benefit The Pore-fessional
Look Beauty Stretch Factor Mascara
ELF HD Blush
*NEW* Benefit Fake Up Concealer
We are lusting after each of these products to pop in our travel essential bag for a number of reasons. If you're out and about for hours on end then Benefit Porefessional is the must have to prepare your skin for the day ahead. It smooths out imperfections and acts as the perfect primer to make your foundation last the whole day and look completely flawless. Our choice of base comes in the form of the exciting Kiko BB Glow Compact, we have seen countless reviews of this saying what a wonderful all round product it really is, and an added bonus of this is the wonderful colour range that Kiko have in the collection, which suits the Lady Boys skin tone perfectly especially with there being darker variants to the range which can be used for contouring. To add a pop of colour we love the multi purpose product that is the ELF HD Blushes. They are marketed as being just a blusher, but their powerful pigmentation and creamy consistency makes them ideal to be used not only on the cheeks for a flush of colour, but can be built up on the lips for an added wow factor giving a long lasting powerful lip shade that doesn't dry out your lips. For the eyes we love the Look Beauty Stretch Factor mascara, we actually prefer this to our beloved Benefit They're Real mascara for use on a daily basis. It gives an equal amount of length and volume but it slightly more 'lightweight' when you're not out on the tiles (or performing to audiences on stage!) and at the price of £6 it's a bargain! And then back to Benefit wonder products with the brand new 'Fake Up' concealer. How great does this look for on the go touch ups?? A revolutionary design and formula which not only conceals your imperfections but also has a layer of skin benefiting goodness to keep your complexion in tip top shape underneath the make up.
