So last week I did a post about what skincare I brought with me on my holidays. Well this is just a little update to that post. Here is what make-up I brought with me. I didn’t actually bring that much as I knew I would be buying heaps of make-up in Sephora and Rickys. You will have to come back later this week for more on that, think I went a little overboard!!
MAC Brule – A great neutral base for any eye look
MAC Taupe – I love this colour to as a base on the socket
MAC Mulch – I use this on the outer corners of my eye, it has a little shimmer, so is really easy to blend
MAC Brun – I use this for more intensity when I want it really smokey, also use in underneath the bottom lash line
Georgio Armani Eyes to Kill No.24 – This is a FANTASTIC eyeshadow that can be used on its own. It creates a gorgeous intense smokey eye, with gold shimmer, really easy to blend and just does not budge! I wore it for a themed 1920s night, when we went to a Speak Easy in San Francisco called Bourbon & Branch, you should check it out if you are ever in San Fran!
Bodyshop Cubes – These are my everyday go to staple, great used dry, but can be used wet too, for a more intense finish.
Bodyshop Navy Blue Eyeliner Pencil – Great for day or night and can be smudged out with the handy blender.
MAC Blacktrack – This is a fail safe, I can’t live without my black gel liner, perfect for flicks that wont budge.
Mabelline Falsies Mascara – Busy trialing this mascara for a blog post, its actually really good.
MAC Painterly Paint Pot – This is the only thing that stops my eyeshadow creasing.
Active Cosmetics False Eyelashes – For when I am really dressing up.
BECCA Vendela Lipstick – I love wearing this during the day time as it is a lovely sheer rose colour, also it hydrates my lips and smells like cocoa butter, seriously good enough to eat!
Rouge d’Armani Lipstick 400 – The most beautiful velvet creamy demi matt red lipstick. I wore this for my 1920s look pared with the smokey eye.
Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in Be Famous – Fantastic when you want a pop of colour during the day time, really freshens up your whole look
YSL Touche Eclat Foundation – The gel formula means that it blends really well, also gives me a radiant finish without making me shiny looking, although I do need to powder it during the day.
MAC Pro Studio Finish Concealer in Orange and NW15 – I have quite dark circle, used in conjunction with each other, they work miracles!
MAC Blot Powder – Perfect for mattifying my skin on a hot day.
MAC Mineralise Skin Finish – If you find you need a little extra coverage this is great on top of your foundation.
Clarins Colour Accents – I do light contouring with this silky powder, can be used as a blusher too.
Benefit Coralista – I love the colour of this blusher, but it really doesn’t last! I just brought it with to try and finish it, seems to last forever.
Royal & Langnickel Silk Pro Foundation Brush – Nice and big, so can be used for body make-up too
No.7 Eyeshadow Blending Brush – The short handles are great for popping in my handbag, soft anf fluffy for blending
Crown Brush Eyeliner Brush – Use this for filling in my eyebrows with eyeshadow
Bodyshop Eyeshadow Brush – To apply the eyeshadow
Art & Hobby Shop Paint Brush – For applying gel liner, find they are alot more longwearing than make-up brushes
So I think that was quite a restrained amount of make-up to bring on holidays. What do you think? Would you bring as much, the same or alot more? Love to hear from you.
Lots of love,
