What’s in my holiday makeup bag?


If you couldn’t guess, I’m more than slightly excited to go on holiday tomorrow and so of course, how could I not leave without posting yet another holiday related post? It’s come to that time where I am now frantically last minute packing and making sure that I’ve got everything ready for tomorrow morning. We’re leaving the house at 8am and so all last minute preparations and last double and triple checks are being done as soon as I leave work! Knowing me, I’ll probably forget something so these checks are all vital before a two week holiday! In the excitement of all of this, I thought that today I would show you what’s in my Holiday makeup bag! 

When I first started packing my makeup bag for Florida I always wanted to go minimal. After all, there’s plenty more makeup out there for me to buy (and I do plan on buying it). However it’s been a lot harder than I thought to cut down. I don’t plan on wearing too much on a day to day basis around the parks, but I think I’ve been forgetting that I am now of drinking age in America and would love to go out for some drinks and just dress up a little more. Of course, with dressing up a little more comes a little more (a lot more) makeup! Oh and how could I not mention my makeup bag?! I found this Mickey Mouse gem in Primark for £5 and it’s absolutely huge! I saw it and instantly fell in love. It’s the perfect bag for going to Disney World with and fits absolutely everything I could think of. And it was a steal!

My Holy Grail can’t-live-without products:

Revlon Photoready Primer – best thing since sliced bread (almost)

Revlon Photo Ready Airbrush Effect Foundation – light and easy with enough coverage to get me through the days

Benefit Puff Off  – to keep me looking alive each morning even though I’m probably a walking Zombie

Topshop Contour Wand – Because I still have to look chiseled to meet Mickey Mouse!

Soap & Glory One Heck Of  A Blot powder –  To stop my makeup melting away

Seventeen Instant Glow – to keep my face looking like a bronzed goddess!

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – need I say more?!

Benefit Brow Zings – The holy grail of brow powders.

Clarins’ Eye Perfector – to keep every eye shadow nicely in place.

Clarins’ Fix Make Up – To make sure that everything is fixed on my face!

MAC Pro Palette in Warm Neutrals – obviously I forgot to photograph this, but it has every shade I should ever need in it!

The Extra’s I probably don’t even need but are taking with me anyway:

Seventeen Long Lash Mascara – Long Lasting Mascara that (hopefully) doesn’t budge in the heat

Seventeen Skin WOW Highlighter – for an extray dewy look in the evening

Kylie Lip Kit in Candy K – Super Pretty & lasts all day.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lip Butter – Okay, I probably will need this, but I probably won’t use it….

MAC’s Mineral Skin finish in Lightscapade – I feel like I’ll be highlighted enough from the sweat in the heat – Gross!!

Clarins Lip Oil in Red – It looks pretty but will probably result in burnt lips! 

Clarins Ombre Waterproof Eye Shadow – non essential when I’m taking my MAC Pro Palette!

And obviously I will also be taking my brushes too! I’ve included the EcoTools Mini brushes here though as (they were the only ones that were clean) they’re perfect for taking with me & taking to the parks each day for top ups of blotting powder and eye shadow / lipstick disasters! I love Eco Tools brushes a they’re so soft and easy to clean too so they’re just the perfect set. What kind of makeup would you take with you to America? Let me know in the comments below and also let me know if I’m forgetting anything!
