Beauty | Holiday Makeup

Oddly enough, it took me no time at all to put together my makeup bag for Santorini. Normally I'm struggling to pick exactly what I'll need to create all the makeup looks I want to on holiday, but this time I'm absolutely confident that I won't be missing anything. Let me show you what I have with me for my week away!

When it came to picking what base and face makeup I was bringing, I was sure that I wanted to pick one of each thing I might need. I won't be wearing foundation during the day for sure, and especially if I tan (I so hope I tan!) so I bought my Bourjois Air Mat foundation as a precaution in case I wake up with any serious blemishes or just feel the need for some cover! I'm pretty confident without foundation, and I'm hoping a little sun and fresh air will help my skin. This foundation is a great for full coverage if I need it, so no concealer is coming with me this time!
For the evenings or any lazy days by the pool I know I'm going to want to glam up, so I'm making sure I at least have my Seventeen Define & Conquer Contour Kit as well as a great bronzer like this Seventeen Instant Glow and highlighter like this Seventeen Wow Highlighter. In warmer weathers I like having a sun-kissed glow kinda look, so I usually go for more natural colours and a contoured look during the warmer months. I don't intend on wearing a lot of this, but if I do - at least I have everything I could possibly need!

Eye make up is one of my absolute favourites. It's what creates the look and I love creating various different eye makeup looks and experimenting with colours. That's why I am taking 3 eyeshadow palettes with me. I know it's a little excessive, but they have all the colours I know I could possibly want right now for any look and as I said, I love to have variety and choice! I'm taking the Urban Decay Vice 4, Naked 3 and Makeup Revolution's Colour Chaos palette.
Along with my palettes, I've got my favourite eyeliner, the L'Oréal Super Liner and mascara (what more do I need right!?). And I have a selection of brow products to suit my looks. Brow gel for the day time (who needs their eyebrows coming off in the pool?), and my Sleek Brow Kit and Benefit Gimmie Brow to make sure my brows are "on fleek" during the night! I normally would take another Mascara with me, but I've been loving Bare Mineral's Lash Domination so much I don't think I would think twice about wanting a different mascara whilst away!

Again, a vast selection for choice. I picked 5 colours and a gloss that I could or would use during my week away. A gorgeous Neon Red from Maybelline, MAC's Saigon Summer (Orange), Pink Blush by Rimmel as well as their Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Stellar (Hot Pink) and finally a gorgeous nude called Just A Fling by Seventeen. I don't think I'd be wanting any other colours - but if I am looking for a glossier look I'll just apply my Collection 2000 Hotlights Lipgloss for a little shine. Out of all my makeup it was hardest to pick out a small amount of lipsticks that I would want, simply because I have so many and lipsticks are my favourite.

It all fits in a relatively small bag, minus the palettes. I'm pretty confident with my makeup choices this holiday, and I look forward to sharing some of my makeup looks in outfit posts when I'm back ♥
