WHAT'S IN MY HOLIDAY MAKE-UP BAG

11 September 2014



Hello lovelies, want to see the contents of my holiday make-up bag? I'm guessing so as you're here, to some of you it mat seem a lot and to some it may seem not enough. To me this is only a bit aha, I like to have options I am always changing my mind hence the handful of lipstick choices. I have a bit of everything going on here though so I should be all good.

BASE - I love a BB cream for the day if I wear anything at all, just for a little bit of coverage and the Maybelline BB Cream is my absolute favorite, it hides my imperfections (not all of them of-course) and my redness and great coverage but very light on the skin, but for nights out in the evening I like a bit more coverage and the new Rimmel foundation is very similar to the other one but the forumlar is slightly different, it kinda feels sticky but not in a bad way, I feel you just have to apply it quicker with the serum inside but the finish is gorgeous. Both of these go perfectly on top of the Benefit Porefessional Primer*, this is amazing at hiding your large opened pores and keeps my make up into place nicely. Then I've took my two favorite concealers of-course Collection lasting perfection concealer, I have this in the lightest shade to just put underneath my eyes to really brighten them up then for more blemish coverage I love my Mac Studio fix concealer, this goes on like a dream and has great lasting power but holds even better with Rimmel Stay Matte powder, this holds everything into place, apparently putting powder on before your foundation keeps it on longer I am still yet to try this trick though. 

EYES - I usually just take my Urban Decay naked 2 palette but I have gone for something a little different now, after I took these pictures I did sneak in my Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess Palette, woops. A girl can never have too much make up though right? I also threw in a couple Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr as there perfect for shadow bases or just a wash of colour in the day. Also great for shadow base is the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chamelion in Bronzed Garnet or just on its on as it is such a stunning shade and so easy to apply to the lids. Then I have a Mac pigment in Tan as this looked so beautiful on Anna (Viviannadoesmakeup) on her holiday get ready with me video so had to purchase and I have wore it once and its gorgeous. I have a gorgeous eyeliner that I have been using all over my lid as an eyeshadow as they are so pigmented and beautiful its the Makeup Revolution I heart makeup all day and night long lasting liner*. Then lastly I have some shadows in the Nars At first sight palette four pretty shades more for an evening look for me. For eyeliner nothing else will do for my eyes than the Maybelline Black Shock Gel Eyeliner , it has immense lasting power and the most striking black to really make your eyes pop. Then for mascara I have the waterproof version of one of my favorite mascara's, Maybelline Collosal Go Extreme, I never wear waterproof mascaras but I think there great in the heat and swimming pool obviously, nobody wants beetle juice eyes right? 

BROWS, CHEEKS & HIGHLIGHTING - For my brows I have totally been loving the Soap&Glory Archery Pen as mentioned in my August beauty faves, it is just brilliant for brow newbies or brow dummies like myself aha. For cheeks I have my favorite cream blusher also mentioned in my August faves Clinique Chubby Stick Cream blush*, this goes on so lovely, pigmented and gives a gorgeous rosy glow. Then for powder I have Nars Deep throat in that palette again which also containers my bronzer for my hols Laguna, I have wanted to try this bronzer for ages and it perfect for contouring or for all round bronzing of the face, perfect palette for me really for my hols. Then for highlighting I have my YSL Touche eclait highlighting pen which is perfect for a little shine on the cheek bones or under the eyebrows and easy to apply on the cupids bow also but for some extra highlighting and a touch of pink I am bringing my Mac MSF in Stereo Rose I love this one. 

LIPS - I have pretty much picked up all brights for my holiday as I love brights in the sun, I am going to show you which ones I took when I am back though with swatches but I have Mac, Seventeen , Nars, Maxfactor, Clinique* and Maybelline
