I know lots of people have already done their version of this post since summer is nearing it's end, but I still have to go on holiday. I seem to have left my summer holiday until the last possible moment.
As I'm going to Florida, I have been given quite a high luggage allowance, but I plan on bringing back A LOT! This means that I have to be rather scrimping with what goes in as too much will leave little space to bring back. I probably still have too much!
For my base I have bareMinerals Original Foundation because it's going to be hot and I'll have sun-cream on, a liquid foundation will just slide off. Maybelline Baby Skin Primer just in case I go anywhere in the evening and need my makeup to last that little bit longer, and Benefit Boi-ing as I'm prone to breakouts on holiday. The Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion in case I want to wear eye-shadow, which is not my norm on holiday but I might want to change things up. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder for touching up during the day; I'm doing all the theme parks so a lot of pictures will be taken. The Makeup Revolution Blushing Heart is a fantastic everyday blush that goes well with everything. My Essence 'how to make BROWS wow!' kit to fill in and tame my eyebrows.
For my eyes and lips I packed quite simply (for me!). The Rimmel Glam Eyes eyeliner as eyeliner only is my typical go to on holiday. My favourite Bourjois Volumizer Mascara as it is two part system which can be worn separate; I can achieve defined lashes or thick volume from the same product. The Makeup Revolution Go! Palette was included as the highlighter and contour are absolutely divine, and on holiday I want super glowy skin. The Body Shop Plum Born Lippy to keep my lips moisturised, and the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'On and On Bronze' as an everyday all over eye colour!
I made sure that my brush collection was not too big; three for face and three for my eyes. Now one lip product may seen very limiting, but I plan on happily skipping off to Walmart and Walgreens pretty early on the trip, which gives me access to anything I forgot and/or want.
After listing all these I feel like this will still be quite a lot. I might decide to take out my Makeup Revolution Go! Palette and substitute it with the Makeup Revolution Goddess of Love Highlighter. Maybe I might also lose the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer as by nighttime I'm usually too exhausted and just chill at the hotel.
Too much or not enough? Let me know!
