What is in my summer holiday make up bag?
I decided to only bring 2 mascaras on holiday with me because I didn't really have enough room to bring more to be honest. What I like about these mascaras is they are both different as they create different looks which means I will be able to decide how dramatic or natural I want my eyelashes to look. I have quite dark eyelashes anyway so I probably won't be wearing mascara during the day, but on a night I will be wearing it! The first mascara I chose was my Bare Minerals Flawless Definition mascara, I love this mascara, I have been using it for months and honestly I think its amazing for lengthening lashes and creating natural looking lashes. The other mascara I chose was Maybelline's Lash Sensational mascara, I love this mascara, its great for lengthening and defining lashes for a dramatic look.
For my face I also have 2 options for the base, the first option is my favourite BB Cream at the minute, the Body Shop's All In One BB Cream, I love this, it feels really light and the coverage is amazing! My other option is my all time favourite which is my Bare Minerals Foundation, I usually wear the fairly light foundation but I am going to bring the light shade as well as I think it will match my skin tone better when I have a tan. I haven't used Bare Minerals Foundation in ages so I am super excited to start using it again as the coverage is amazing and it feels so lightweight! I am also taking my Bare Minerals Prime Time Foundation Primer which I absolutely love as well as my Bare Minerals Mineral Veil powder which is absolutely insane, I would even go as far to say its my favourite powder ever! I am also going to take one of my favourite make up brushes ever, my Bare Minerals Full Flawless Face brush, I absolutely love this brush, its amazing!
I have chosen to bring one blusher and one bronzer with me as well. I chose to bring my Bare Minerals ones because I don't really use them that often and I should because they are amazing! I chose my Bare Minerals All Over Face Colour in Warmth because its a gorgeous colour for creating a natural sun kissed glow. I also decided to bring my Bare Minerals blush in Ignite which is gorgeous shimmery pink colour. I am going to bring my Bare Minerals Flawless Face Brush which is amazing and perfect for applying blusher or bronzer.
For my eyes, I chose two of my favourite eyeshadow palettes at the minute, the first one is my MUA Poptastic eyeshadow palette, I love this, I think the colours are gorgeous and perfect for creating cute summer eye make up. I then chose a completely different eye shadow palette which is great to create a smoky eye make up, my Seventeen Limited Edition eyeshadow palette, these colours are so gorgeous and have a tiny bit of shimmer to them which I love. I am also going to bring my Bare Minerals tapered shadow and crease brush which I can't live without, its the best eye shadow brush I have ever used, I just love it.
I also opted to bring a few more individual eye shadows because you can never have to many eye shadows can you? I have chose to bring two of my bare minerals eye colours in Centre Stage which is a gorgeous chocolate colour and Flawless Diamond which is a gorgeous shimmery cream colour! Bare Minerals eye colours are my favourites, they are so pretty and perfect for a special occasion! The eye shadow in the middle is from Boots No7 in the shade Cappuccino, I love this eye shadow because it lasts ages and is really easy to blend for a gorgeous dramatic look.
I then chose to bring these three double ended lipglosses which I have featured in many blog posts, I love these, the shades are absolutely beautiful and they are very long lasting! I picked these up in Sephora in New York in May and I instantly knew they would be amazing and they didn't disappoint. They are in the shades: Charmer and Spark Plug, Show Off and Hot Shot and Rebel and Stunner. What I love about these lip glosses is one side is a natural shade for during the day and then the other side is a brighter, bolder shade for a gorgeous night time make up look.
I then decided I should bring a few lip crayons, I chose two from Makeup Revolution, one in an orangey shade and the other in a bright pink shade. I love these lip crayons, they are great for creating fun and bold make up looks. I also decided to bring my Seventeen Lip Crayon which is a kind of neon pinky purple shade which I just think is perfect for summer.
Finally, I decided to bring 5 lipsticks with me because well why not? I chose 5 very different shades. L to R: Champagne on Ice, Blushing Mauve, Love That Red, Iced Amethyst and Bright Pink. These lipsticks are all gorgeous colours, I think I would probably wear Champagne on Ice and Blushing Mauve during the day because they are more natural shades and then wear the darker shades on a night.
Thanks so much for reading!
