In a couple of days I will be on my way to Crete,Greece and I am beyond excited! I cannot wait to be back on a beautiful island getting a tan all day long and taking amazing photos. So today’s post is all about what make up I take with me, ofcourse I want to be able to travel light but that never happens.
Mac Prep + Prim is my go to primer for special occasions as I know it keeps my make place and keeps it looking good. And as these are sample sizes they are perfect to take on holiday to keep the weight down, and more than likely I will end up using these up.
For foundation I like to take matte ones, as it is very hot and humid I find that a normal foundation would just melt of my face. My choices are Loreal Infalliable 24-hour matte and Maybelline Stay Matte. I have also picked these as they are the darkest foundations I have in my drawers. But my next item is going to be a life saver, it is the Loreal Foundation Drops. These darken your foundation, which is perfect for when you need darker foundation day by day on holiday.
Next I have chosen to take an under eye brightening concelor as I figure this will help add some depth to my face. I have chosen the Mayeblline Dream Lumi Touch concelor in a light shade.
And finally to set my face I am using my all time favorite Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.
For eyeshadow you may think I have gone a little crazy but I have picked a matte palette from The Balm and a shimmery palette from Make Up Revolution (Mermaids Forever). Both of these palettes really compliment each other and have a good variety of colours from bright and bold to soft neutral. I then have also packed my Loreal Infalliable single eyeshadow in gold to add that extra bit of shimmer if needed. And to prime my eye lids I have chosen Mac Paintery Paint Pot as this gives full coverage of your eye lids and gives a good base for any colours going on top.
Eye lash curlers are a must for me at the minute, as my lashes have grown and look so much fuller they really hold a curl now. I have then picked two of my favourite mascaras, Too Faced Better Than Sex and one from Illamasqua. I have then also really been into using a blue mascara on my bottom lash line along with a blue a liner. The mascara is from Collection and the liners are from MUA. For inner corner highlight I am taking my highlight pen from Catrice.
This section of my make up was hardest to decide on as I wanted to take so much. I h w chosen a cream bronzer from Seventeen which I want to try our while I’m away. I then have picked my Nars x Steven Klein palette which has a contour shade, bronzer,setting powder and 4 blushes. Another palette I am taking is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit which has 2 blushes, a bronzer, and three highlighters. By taking two palettes I really do have a lot of options but they are more compact. I then have picked my favourite highlighters, Mac Soft and Gentle and The Balm Marylou-manizer.
I LOVE a bright bold lip in the summer!
I am taking one lip liner in a red shade from MUA as this will pretty much work for most of the lipsticks. But I need to find my anti bleed lip liner aswell before I go as I love that to stop it bleeding.
