My Holiday Makeup Bag

I like to travel light when I go away – in December I was away a fair bit, and these were the bits and bobs I took along with me:

Here we have Le Metier de Beaute eyebrow pencil, Tom Ford eyebrow pencil, Makeup Forever eyeliner No19, DJV Beautenizer Volume Lash mascara, Clinique Lip Smoothie, Becca lipstick in Giselle, Chantecaille lip chic in Tea Rose, Paul and Joe face powder, Nars blush in Sin, and on the top, Le Metier de Beaute eye kaleidoscope in le Cirque, Chantecaille tinted moisturiser in Glow, and Nars Concealer in honey.

Here’s a look at the shades:

And with flash:

I find with this kit I can accomplish a number of looks, from polished neutrals, to smokey eyes, to barely there.  In particular I love the le Cirque palette, as it always looks polished, and always gets compliments whenever I wear it – however I apply it!

As for brushes, I like to keep those to a minimum too:

One blush brush, three eyeshadow brushes, and one powder brush.

What do you pack to take away with you?

Oh, there are some full reviews of some of these products coming up soon, do let me know if there’s anything you want to see.

The Fine Print – mixture of PR samples and purchases.  But mainly purchases.  These are mainly the products I can’t live without …

    I wish I could pack that light! I always take too much and end up with things I don't even end up using while I'm away. I'm the same with clothes and shoes as well. I always think to my self 'but what if I need that' even though I won't lol x

    I like to think that I have mastered the art of packing light when it comes to my makeup. I never take more than 10 items which I think is good!
