Vienna | My Travel Make-Up Bag

Today is actually my last day in Vienna - we're flying back tonight! - but even so, I thought I'd share a peek at what I packed in my make-up bag for our week away. A week is long enough that I'd like to have a couple of options, and since we travelled with checked luggage I didn't have the restrictions of trying to squeeze everything into a minuscule plastic bag for hand luggage - hurrah!
Holiday Makeup
Given that my skin has been relatively good recently (touch wood!) I'm hoping that I'll mostly be able to get away with a tinted moisturiser rather than a full foundation - although I have brought both just in case, in the shape of Origins VitaZing Tinted Moisturiser and L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation (US Version), along with George's Super Boost Concealer for any blemishes that do pop up.
The weather is meant to be nice, which means I'll need a good setting powder to keep my make-up in place and keep my skin matte - I've been using Kryolan's Anti-Shine Powder recently and, applied with a dampened beauty blender (I'm using one from EcoTools), it's pretty bloomin' good! For blusher, I've gone for my old favourite MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Stereo Rose', which is like a blusher and highlight combined. I've also got a liquid highlight (NARS Orgasm Illuminator), and the blusher in my Tarte 'Be Your Own Tarte-ist' palette, so I've got a couple of options for my cheeks. I've chucked in L'Oreal's Infallible Fixing Mist, which I don't love but am trying to use up.
For brows I've kept it simple with my I ♥ Makeup Brow Kit, and my almost-empty Benefit's Gimme Brow to set, as well as my trusty Tweezerman tweezers for keeping things neat and tidy. In addition to the six shadows in the Tarte palette, I've got my Essence My Must-Haves palette, and Soap & Glory's Thick & Fast HD Collagen Mascara, which gives me a few options for eye make-up. I've then thrown in the Rodial lip crayon from this month's Glossybox for good measure, although I don't wear a lot of lip products - it's nice to have the option if I feel like being fancy!

I think I did pretty well at packing a streamlined make-up bag which gives me a few options without carting a million products along with me - although I'm sure my boyfriend will still think I've brought too much... How do you decide which products to take on holiday with you? Does this look like a lot for one week, or would you be taking more?
