EEEK LESS THAN A WEEK TO GO!!
I'm off to Turkey in just under a week and I have to say i'm so excited to get away from the UK and the rubbish weather! I thought i'd share my holiday make up bag and what i'm taking to turkey with me.
Since I took these photos I have picked up a few extra bits but this is the main bulk of products that will be coming with me. First up my base products, i'll be bringing my favourite concealer which is Collection, lasting perfection in the shade fair. Nars Sheer Glow* for the evening. I picked up a Rimmel BB cream yesterday for the daytime. For my contour i'm bringing my Becca highlighter in Champagne Pop and the Collection contour kit which is such a handy little product. The Bronzer is a gorgeous shade and the highlight side is a really lovely shade which I use under my eye to set my concealer to brighten the eye area. I've also popped my trusty faithful Clarins Bronzer *as this is one of my favourite bronzers for whilst i'm on holiday and you can use a really big brush and give yourself a little bit of colour all over your body.
Lip Products! I haven't gone crazy with lip products, i'll be bringing my Clarins comfort lip oil *for in the day and then i've picked out a couple of liquid lipsticks, this Maybelline Vivid Matte Lip which is a lovely pinky nude and one of the Revlon Matte HD lip colours in a nude/ pink shade too. I'm also bringing this Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lipstick* in this gorgeous red shade as i'm loving matte lips right now! I will also be bringing Mac Velvet Teddy and I might pick up a lipstick in Duty Free, what shall I go for?
A few other bits that i'm taking along include my trusty faithfull eye liner, Rimmel Exaggerate liner in black and my NYX brow pencil. I will also be bringing Glow by Topshop which is a really good multi-use product which I use as a highlight on my brow bone and cupids bow but it's a handy eye-shadow too. Another trusty faithfull is the Urban Decay Potion Primer in Sin, this is a gorgeous eye primer and you can wear it alone or apply your eyeshadow over the top for a gorgeous colour and really good staying power. I'm going to be using my Stila palette whilst i'm away as it has a really good mixtures of mattes and shimmers and has a really good selection of shades.
A few new things i'm going to try whilst i'm in Turkey include the Maybelline Colossal mascara and the new Soap and Glory Archery Volu-Boost* to give my brows more definition. I'm also going to try the new Soap and Glory WonderBronze* which is a bronzer in a stick, i've had a little play and I love it so far!
I tend to wear a little bit of bb cream in the day and fill my brows in and then do my make up on the evening, what are your must have staples for your holiday make up bag?
