My Travel Makeup Kit

So on Monday I got back from a one week holiday in sunny Spain and thought I would share with you what I took in my make-up bag! I kept it very simple because I knew I wouldn't be wearing much make-up in the heat and I took all cream based products to save me from carrying around loads of different brushes, I just used my fingers instead. So here's what I took:

Face: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC42
Cheeks: Ben Nye Creme Rouge Wheel CR-100
Eyes: MAC Paint Pot in Indianwood, L'Oreal Superliner Carbon Gloss, Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara Waterproof in Black, Coastal Scents 88 palette, 17 Metallic Eye Pencil in Bronze.
Lips: Rimmel Shock Gloss in 208 AMP'ED , Nivea Caregloss & Shine (the pink one)

(will add a pic soon)

A couple of these products didn't do very well in the heat. My studio finish concealer looked like it was sweating, it was gross! I didn't end up using it because of this. The sexy curves mascara went off and it smelt terrible but I still used it because my other other choice was to do without mascara and I couldn't do that!! lol It went straight in the bin when I got home.

It was a nice relaxing girly holiday. Here's a picture of the view from the balcony of our apartment:
Nice isn't it :)

One of my best friends who I went on holiday with has also just started a blog. She's a qualified nail technician and always has beautiful nails, she also has a great acrylic nail tutorial up at the moment, check out her blog here.
