What's In My Makeup Bag : Holiday Edition

Do not fear everyone, I am not one of those girls who goes to the beach with an entire face full of makeup and false lashes etc, but I cannot stand going without any makeup at all. For the beach I will literally just  wear some waterproof mascara, and in the evenings I do tend to wear slightly more makeup just as its nice to dress up a little for dinner.

In terms of base I have packed my Bourjous Happy Light Matte Primer. I think the Happy Light will come in handy for making my makeup stay in place in the evenings and just keeping shine at bay. Next up I packed my Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer in Shade 3 (all time favourite how could I not?!) which is just a super light feeling concealer but with a fair amount of coverage. My under eye circles are horrific but its not due to lack of sleep or anything, its a hereditary thing that runs in my family and its such a pain, most concealers don't even cover them but this one does a fairly good job. This, along with all the base products, will only be used in the evenings and on the day I am flying back. The fourth product I have packed is my 2True Pressed Powder, a must for me as the weather over there is around 36 degrees so I will be super oily. 
In terms of foundation I think I may have gone slightly overboard considering I am hoping to buy MAC Face and Body at the airport...oops. Anyhow I have packed my L'oreal True Match. L'oreal True Match had to come with me because its just such a great all rounder in terms of foundation and makes my skin look flawless. Also the shade I have is slightly darker than my natural colour so will work so much better with my tan.

The other face products I am taking with me are my Sleek Contour Kit, mainly for the highlighter, and also this Sleek Californ-ia blush palette. It has three gorgeous cream blushes in so this saves on space (I am also very indecisive). 

Onto Eyes and the most important pack was the Collection Killer Curves waterproof mascara. I have to wear mascara on holiday, my eyelashes are just so short and straight and I cannot be dealing with that. I haven't actually tried this mascara before but I am hoping it will be okay! Eyelash Curlers are also a must and these are just packed my Primark Eyelash Curlers which are really good considering the price. My MAC Palette is also coming with me (in bubble wrap don't worry!) and my MUA Undressed Palette. I don't really have single eyeshadows and I am intending to buy a few eyeshadows for my MAC palette at Duty Free so it seems like a good idea to bring the palette with me. Also the MUA Undressed Palette has pretty much every colour I would use in it and isn't too heavy. Soft Ocre Paintpot by MAC is also coming as its the most perfect base and truly neutralises my lids and makes my eyeshadow stay on for the longest time. As a fan of winged liner, I of course have to pack my L'oreal Superliner (by far the easiest liner to use). 

Then lastly my Sleek Eyebrow Kit, as the powder in this stays on forever, and my Collection Clear Mascara which I use to set my brows into place. 

Brushes are such a pain to transport but I am taking my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, Blush Brush and two of the Duo-Fibre collection brushes. I also have just a small fluffy brush for eyeshadow and my ELF Eyeliner Brush that I use for my eyebrows and also this small angled brush. I also have a lip brush and my Real Techniques Concealer Brush, as well as my ELF Kabuki. 

Last but not least lips! This was the category I had the most trouble narrowing down as I have far too many products to choose from. If there was no weight limit I would pack them all but I feel that clothes and shoes are slightly more of a necessity. I have packed my Rimmel Kate Moss in 08 which is a slightly pinky nude which would go well with a slightly bolder eye, my MAC Toying Around which is from the Playland collection, Rimmel Apocolips in Big Bang, Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Striking Spectaculaire and lastly my Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in In Love With Ginger. I need choice okay people don't judge!

I hope you enjoyed reading about what I am taking in my makeup bag on my holiday and I will see you when I get back in a week!
