Summer Holidays | What's In My Make Up Bag

For the third instalment of the Summer Holiday series I thought I would share what I've packed in my make up bag. In 30 degree heat I doubt I'll be wearing anything other than a bb cream and a little mascara. But we all know it's the evenings that call for a smokey eye and defined brows.

My Day Face

Benefit Gimme Brow Gel in Medium/Deep - £18.50

These three were my go to items every single day! With the sun giving my skin a bit of colour all I needed was to define my brows, smooth out the skin and give my complexion a touch of colour. The Dior Addict Lip Glow turned into my lip colour of choice, even though the evenings. And has push me towards braving brighter pink shades. 

My Night Face

Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Palette in Natural Nudes (Limited Edition)
Burberry Kisses Lipstick in Military Red and Nude Beige - £25.00

When it came to the evening my eyes were my main focus. With naturally sun kissed skin I skipped the bronzer and left the base as natural as I could. I love a good multitasking product, and the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance sat beautifully underneath the Dr Jart Beauty Balm for a fresh dewy finish.  I sat at my dressing table blending away to create a soft smokey eye and layered plenty of mascara which thankfully survived the heat.

Nanshy Large Shader Brush*
Eco Tools Eyeshadow Brush (No longer available) 

With so much room I even packed a roller ball Zara Woman 92.Champs Elysees perfume. And my new favourite hair product, the Percy & Reed Volumising No Oil Oil. This makes my hair feel super soft without weighing it down and even gives it a little volume. Perfect for keeping my hair healthy and shiny.

What make up do you like to wear on holiday? Are you like me and skip the foundation in the sun?
