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!)
