Holiday Make-up Bag! (What's In It?)


So it's time for the round-up of make-up goodies to take on holiday! I usually take too much of the stuff (what a surprise) and then just can't be bothered with it because it's either too hot or I don't feel like I need as much when I get a little bit of sun on my kite! And I stress 'a little' - I do usually smother my face in sunscreen and wear a hat - I'm not a massive 'face sunworshipper'!

So I've really tried to minimise the slap this year.  Here we go ...

Left to right ...

Sanctuary Spa Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 15 - medium to dark - a current favourite, full review coming shortly!
No 7 Quick Cover Blemish Stick - dark - conceals and gives good long lasting coverage.
No 7 Instant Radiance Concealer - shade 2 - conceals and brightens my ever-present dark circles.
Bare Minerals Prime Time - can be used as an eyelid primer or a soft/shimmery eye colour.
Mally Couture Color Custom Blush - Berry - a lovely flush of colour that lasts all day.
Bare Minerals Flawless Face Brush - great all round brush, love Bare Minerals brushes.
Bare Minerals Tinted Mineral Veil - can be used on it's own or to 'finish' make-up, lovely soft finish, conceals my open pores.
MUA Bronze/Blush Palettes - great summertime tones, as in my recent review here.

Left to right ...

Rimmel Professional Eye Brow Pencil - Black/Brown - love this, easy to use and very cost-effective!
Revitalash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner - can't do without this!
Avon Glimmersticks in Cosmic Brown and Blackest Black - glide on effortlessly.
Bare Minerals Waterproof Eyeliner - stays put all day.
Mally Volumising Mascara - again very good at 'staying put'.
No7 Fanomenal Mascara - one of my currents faves.
Laura Geller At Long Lash Waterproof Mascara - forgot I'd got this, was part of a kit from QVC, waterproof so should come in handy.
Blistex Lip Brilliance - a daily favourite, lovely soft pink tint.
Bare Minerals Lipgloss - Sprinkles - part of a Bare Minerals kit, sheer and sparkly.
Bare Minerals Hydrating Lip Tint - a deep pink lip stain.

All are packed away ...

Are you a 'pack it all' or 'minimise like you've never known' girl?

What your holiday make-up faves?

  1. I think you would have laughed at my camping make up! About 5 items and that was it! By day 2 I regretted it, but stuck it out glad to be home to all my luxuries. I think you've got it about right! X

    1. I've prob taken too much as usual but there are a few items I'm so glad I shoved in! X

  2. Ooh I'm gonna grab the MUA bronzer today - always wondered if it'd be any good!x
