How to: Doing Make up on the Train

Last weekend I travelled to see my boyfriend (and happily I can now call them our friend’s gosh how couple-y) and I discovered a few tips to doing make up on a train. Here are my few little tips if you are ever travelling on a train and have shove stuff on your face early in the morning to look half decent.

#1 Ignore the people around you; would you rather look pretty for the people who you will spend hours with or be the object of curiosity for a few minutes to strangers on the train

#2 Decide what you are going to do the night before; its very easy to just follow instructions in the back of your brain instead of mixing up eye shadow colours and looking like a zombie with green eyes

#3 Put your make up bag at the top of you bag; therefore to avoid emptying out all of your stuff on the person next to you

#4 Take doubles; the glow pot from topshop (blog to follow about its awesomeness) works as an eye shadow, highlighter and something to add to your lips. Saves so much space.

#5 Less is More; take a small make up bag with only your options for that look to avoid mess, disaster and clutter on your small little train table

If you were wondering what I actually put on my face here it is;

Primer – Rimmel London Baby Face

Power – The Collection Lasting Perfection

Concealer – Benefit’s erase paste

Blusher – Revlon Baby Stick for Lips and Cheeks

Eye Shadow(s) – Bare Minerals its a light sparkly colour and a bronze coloured eye shadow that I have no idea where it is from appologies!

Mascara(s)- Seventeen Superlash Mascara and Clinique High Impact Mascara

Eyeshadow(s)- Seventeen Kohl Deep Black, The Collection in Vanilla Sky and Vintage Blush (I did treat myself in the eye department I admit)
