Travel Makeup when all you have is Hand Luggage

I’m a very excited girl at this moment in time.  Not only is it my birthday on Monday but I will be spending it in Paris.  I’m so thrilled as I have never been before and I can’t wait to soak up all the history… and find a Sephora!  We decided to fly to Paris as when we came to book the Eurostar was just too damn expensive.  The only downside to flying is baggage restrictions.  I’m only taking hand luggage on the way out (to save money) but I have of course, checked my bag in on the way back so I can stock up on my French skincare! (Post to follow)  This post is a combination of what I’m taking in my hand luggage/ make up bag because of course they will be going into both.
YSL Touché Éclat Foundation and Concealer
My favourite foundation at the moment and in keeping with the French theme (ok there is no theme but hey, it’s French and I’m going to France).  I’m only going for 3 days so have decanted some into a small tester bottle I have.  Travelling makes me tired so I use my ‘magic’ pen to conceal my dark circles which makes it the perfect travel companion. 
Mac Concealer
I’ve ran out of my trusted Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection so I’m relying on an old favourite to cover up any unwelcome spots that may come along.
Nars Laguna Bronzer and MUA Blush in Shade 1
I’m a little worried about taking this with me as I’ve hit pan and I hear they are notorious for smashing.  However I just couldn’t leave the country without my favourite bronzer.  The MUA blush matches my Laguna perfectly.  It just adds a sufficient amount of colour to my cheeks!
Benefit High Beam
I have this very cute travel sized bottle so I thought why not!  I love the glow it gives my cheeks and it works so well with my blush/bronzer combo!
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Now this may seem a little bulky for travelling and I agree but I find this palette so multipurpose that I only need this for all my eye shadow and eye brow needs.
Lancôme Mascara
I got a sample of this in one of my beauty boxes and it is the perfect size for travelling.  I still haven’t replaced my telescopic mascara but when testing this I’ve been happy with the results.
Mac Cream Cup Lipstick
For that little pop of colour for my lips!
I’m also taking a few skincare items so that I can maintain some sort of skincare routine… if I’m not sloshed up on vino and birthday cake!
No7 Beautiful Skin Day and Night Cream (decanted)
Caudalie SOS Thirst Quenching Serum (sample size) 
So there you have it.  That’s my holiday make up/ hand luggage beauty essentials.  It’s only a short flight so I don’t think I will be taking my make up off, applying a face mask and then putting it back on again (naughty I know).  I know that I will just not be bothered with all that. I’d love to know make up take on holiday.  
What are your holiday beauty essentials?
