Holiday Packing: Makeup

Following on from my last post Holiday Packing: Beauty I thought I would also show which makeup items I will be taking. 

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser - It is no secret how much I adore the Oil Free version of this but it has very sadly run out and when I was organising my makeup I came across this forgotten base. This gives a gorgeous glow to the skin but doesn't offer as much coverage as the oil free version. However I am hoping that with all the Vitamin D my skin will find this perfect! 

Bourjois Cream Bronzing Primer - This was a firm favourite of mine last year  (you can tell by the very battered packaging!) and has I have hit pan on my Laguna Bronzer I decided to take this with me to give skin a natural sun kissed look. It is supposed to be a primer but I have always preferred it as a bronzer! 

Topshop Eye Gleam in Bronzed - Again sorting about my makeup (post here) allowed me to rediscover this gorgeous eyeshadow that can be used on its own for a slightly glittery bronzed look or a perfect base for a more smokey eye. The texture is so buttery and it blends perfectly. I also really like how it wears throughout the day. Read a full review here although I warn you it was my second post ever so thinking of giving an updated one when I am back!  

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage - I go one and on about my love for this but it is just a phenomenal concealer. read full review here

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light - Another much loved and discussed product. Most of the products now have full reviews which I will list below. Full review here

L'Oreal Magique Highlighting Concealer Pen - Perfect for under the eyes. 

Anastasia Brow Wiz - Full review here.  

L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Waterproof Mascara, The perfect mascara for lengthening and it holds a curl all day. The only downfall it is impossible to remove so I will need to buy my favourite eye makeup remover at the airport! 

Maybelline Brow Drama - Full review here. 

My favourite brushes: EcoTools Tapered Blush Brush, Real Techniques Detailer Brush, Real Techniques Dome Shadow Brush, MAC 217, Real Techniques Blush Brush (full reviews on these coming soon!)


  1. Good selection, everything that you could need on holiday, I love the Nars concealer its so good.
