I’m currently in Rhodes I thought I’d do a little what’s in my holiday make up bag as I don’t think I did one last year. Before I get into it make sure you follow my Instagram where I shall be posting on Insta stories and updating to my feed now and then xamylouise89x whilst I’m away ❤
As you can see it’s a mixture of brands and I absolutely love.
I’m using this no.7 airbrush away primer as a base (obviously) before using the collection illuminating touch foundation. I decided to go with an illuminating foundation rather than my usually matte type, purely because I was to look glowy on holiday. Before I apply my eye make up I’m using the make up revolution eye primer which I have been using for quite some time now and really do believe this works!.
I’m obsessed with the eye shadow palette and it’s by make up revolution , as is the blush palette. I adore the shades in both palettes as there are perfect for both day and night looks. For highlight I’m using the top 4 shades in the blush palette ( I think you can tell my most used one haha). For bronzer and for contouring I’m using my good old Benefit hoola. I’ve been a fan of the hoola every since I first time is a few years ago and I literally don’t think I will ever not like it. I LOVE that it’s the perfect bronze and contour shade.
For eyebrows and eyeliner I’m using Soap and glory products and they are simply amazing. I heard a lot about them from other bloggers/youtubers and had to try them for myself, and wow I can see why they get great reviews. Very simple to use which for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time to do make up (especially when on holiday as I like to be out all the time) these pens are perfect!. I’m using the Benefit ‘ready set brow’ for set my brows with and the mini roller lash mascara on my lashes. I love this mascara it’s definitely one of my all time faves.
And finally the lipsticks!
The last few holidays I’ve literally taken about 10 lipsticks which is wayyyy to many, so this time round I went through ALL of them (and there’s a lot) and picked out just 4. I made sure I still had a nice even choice of nudes and obviously a red. As you can see I went for 2 nudes – NYX in the shade ‘Sandstorm’ and Mac’s velvet teddy. I opted for a pinky nude from Urban Decay in the shade ‘baby talk’ and finally a deep red by NYX in the shade ‘Cophenhagan’. I am a massive fan of the products they all apply very well and last a good few hours which is perfect for evening wear :).
What’s in your holiday make up bag?
