As the weekend approaches I am in such a great mood! It's my Birthday on Sunday and the I'm off on holiday next week. I've made a delicious Lemon Drizzle Cake & Brownies for work and I definitely feel the sugar overload is contributing towards my happiness!
Here's my final instalment in 'Holiday Essentials' and today I'm sharing with you my makeup bag! I've been so reserved when packing this, resisting taking every highlighter and gold eyeshadow with me!
Fake Up Concealer - Still loving this, smooth to apply and moisturisers those pesky bags
Bourjois BB Bronzing Cream - Cannot get enough of this. This year I'm not taking ANY foundations, just this little gem
Benefit High Beam - This only liquid highlighter I've chosen, a gorgeous pinky shade
Bourjois Cream Blushers - Shade 01 & 02. I try to use as many liquid/cream products as possible. These are so easy to use and give you a gorgeous glow
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick - I have picked the shade Beige to take with me, it's made of gorgeous Bronze, Gold & Champagne colours!
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish - Standard powder in all girls makeup bag. Shade Medium. Perfect for setting makeup and apply when looking a tad shiny
Sleek Contour Kit - I always use this for contouring in the shade Light. I work the matte brown shade into the hollows of my cheek & temples
Bourjois Bronzer - I finish off my bronzed look with this powder in shade 52. It has a slight shimmer to it so I don't go too mad. Gives you a really warm colour
NAKED PALETTE - It was a tough decision between Palette 1 & 2! I opted for Palette 1 as it has more warm shades in so will look great against a tan
MINERS EYESHADOW - I love this eyeshadow and use it constantly! Stardust is a gorgeous champagne gold and is perfect for the inner eye
MAC EYESHADOW - I'm going to be taking All That Glitters, Coquette & Satin Taupe. My favourite look to do with these 3 shades: All That Glitters all over the lid, Coquette blended in the crease and Satin Taupe on the bottom waterline
NYX JUMBO EYE PENCIL - I use this everyday, quick and easy to apply to your eyelid and blend in. Great for an eyeshadow base or just alone to make your eyes look more open!
YSL Touch Eclat - Used to brighten up under my eyes, above brows, down the nose, cupids bow... this Holy Grail product really has endless uses
Benefit They're Real Mascara - I have raved about this A LOT. Favourite mascara ever... review here
Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara - I know it sounds weird but for my bottom lashes I like to use a drier mascara. This must be about a year old now but still has some life in it.
NYX Eye Shadow Base - Can be used before eyeshadows to ensure they last as long as possible
MAC Eyebrow Pencil & Brow Set - I've chosen to take my brow pencil out of all my brow products just because it's the smallest and lightest. I use shade Lingering
NYX Liquid Blank Liner - Love this liquid liner, super fine brush, easy to apply and perfect for a sexy cat eye.. review here
MAC Eye Pencil - This is in the shade Coffee is warm dark brown. Looks great in the water line or smudged on the upper lid
17 Ultimate Volume Lipgloss - This in shade Peachy and its a shimmery bronzey nude
Lancome Bois De Rose Lipstick - I saw this on the Sales Assistant on Lancome and fell in love instantly. I've always loved nudes but this is a bit more of a warmer shade that is perfect with a sexy smokey eye
MAC Sandy B - This is a peachy gold shade and really tops off the bronzed holiday look. I would never of picked this up but the MAC Makeup Artist put it on me and I had to have it. I top it off with the 17 Lipgloss.
Topshop Lipstick - Shade Brighton Rock is my favourite Topshop lipstick, creamy and pigmented. It's a warm cerise pink that suits everyone
Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss - Shade Non-Stop Galamour, I picked this up after it was featured in Tanya Burr's Kim Kardashian video. It finishes off the Nude lip and gives it a hint of shimmer
What are your plans this weekend?
