Holiday make up

 A winter holiday is exactly what I needed but when it came to what make up to pack I was really unsure. 

It's not that long since I came back from Lanzarote and I too far too much make up on that holiday. This time I've really paired it back and possibility haven't brought enough. There are shops so i'm sure for a week I will cope but this is all I have brought on this holiday.

Benefit Porefessional - This is a teeny tiny sample size. I do like this product and I've had a couple of samples previously. it does have tint too it but I don't think it effects how the product works but I'm still not sure I want to commit to a full size products. 

Number seven Intelligent Colour foundation - This is my go to holiday base. I have mine in medium and while it does have a slight silicone feeling to it. It blends well and does colour match me well. it is also light for warm evenings. 

 The only lip products I've brought is a blistex lip balm. This has SPF 15 in it and helps to protect my lips. This one has a slight medicinal quality to it and my appretice at work has got me hooked on it. 

For eyeshaddow I've stuck to two products the Maybeline Creme de Rose Colour Tattoo and the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Iced Mocha. 
The only eyeliner I've brought it one from Seventeen in black. This is a simple Khol pencil and is easy to use and sumgdes nicely.

I was trying to get my eyebrows shaped and tinted before I came away and didn't manage it so I've brought a Rimmel eyebrow pencil. This is a good colour match for me but I do go through phases where I love this then I won't use it for months. 

The other eyeliner in the picture is an Essence in black midnight sky which my mum brought and i mistakenly picked up for the picture. Its worth mentioning as this is a beautiful soft eyeliner which has some navy and silver sparkle to it. 

 My Mascara is the bare minerals Lash Domination. I grabbed this as one of my Love Me Beauty Items last month. I've only used it once as I liked it, the packaging is tiny and the wand is almost the same size as the tube. I did find it tricky to apply but I think that is because there is only a very small cap to hold on it. 

My final item is a Milani bronzer in Hermosa Rose. This is such a pretty product that gives a slight glow as well as bronzes
