Holiday Makeup Must-Haves ~ Summer in the Sun

Hey beauties! I have another blog post in the Summer in the Sun Series that I talked about in my last blog post. Its all about summer and the holidays so I am going to show you my holiday make up must haves. These are the products I'm going to bring along with me on holiday though I will probably (definitely) not bring some of the lip products as I don't think I need all of those for 1 week.

Firstly my makeup bag is from Vera Wang and I got it in a set with the Princess perfume. I like how it is clear which means I can see all the products and it is quite large and spacious too which is always a bonus.

I am bringing my trustworthy Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer as I use it all the time and cannot live without it. On holiday, I prefer not to wear a heavy foundation so I am just sticking to concealer and powder which is the Natural Collection Powder. I also just popped a mini High Beam by Benefit into the bag as well to add a bit of a radiant glow onto my cheeks. Instead of bringing a separate blush and bronzer, I chose the Sleek Face Form Kit as it has everything in the palette that I need. A matte bronzer, shimmery red/pink blush and a highlight all compact in one little palette.

As I am to bring as little as possible, I thought a 12 eyeshadow palette probably wouldn't be appropriate. But a mini trio eyeshadow from 17 (now called Seventeen I think) in Metallic Toffee would be all I need as it has 3 shades that are wearable colours. Mascara-wise I have chosen the Maybelline Mega Plush but knowing me I will probably end up changing as I am not 100% sure which one to bring. I also am bringing the Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in 011 Sable.

Okay so I know I probably don't need 5 different lip options for 7 day holiday, but who knows whether I will be craving a bold peach or a natural nude lip? So its better to bring all the options for whatever lip colour I am feeling that day. I have brought the MUA lipstick in Shade 16 'Nectar', a flattering peachy orange shade // Revlon Colourburst Lip Lacquer in 120 'Vivacious', a bold pink // Benefit Hoola Lip Gloss, a natural nude/brown colour // Bourjois Colourboost Lip Crayon in 'Peach on the Beach',  a pretty pinky peach shade // Too Faced Sweet Sun Shines Lip Gloss in 'Papaya Slushie', a sheer orange colour.
