Holiday Make-up

As you know, I'm going on holiday - next Friday, eeek! I've finally figured which make-up I'll be taking with me.
I've opted for light weight and simple make-up. Firstly after I've cleansed and moisturised, I'll apply No.7 Dual Protection tinted moisturiser in Fair with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush which gives good coverage but it's still light. The moisturiser dries matt which is the main thing I love about this product, I think being in a hot country and getting sweaty and then adding a dewy moisturiser would just be a disaster. I then apply Estee Lauder's Double Wear concealer in shade 02 Light Medium to any redness and blemishes, I don't use the gloss on the other end, it smells like strawberry Calpol, it's sickening and then some YSL Touche Ecalt in shade 1 under my eyes to banish any dark circles.

For highlight, I apply my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle, it's such a beautiful highlighter, I apply it to the tops of my cheekbones, cupids bow, down the nose and on the temples then add my Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess bronzer to my cheekbones, temples and dust it down my neck. My Real Techniques Blush brush is great for applying bronzer, the brush is tapered so it's good for contouring.

To finish it off, if I'm feeling like eyeshadow, I use my Urban Decay primer and Naked Palette with my Jemma Kidd brushes, my most use shades are Virgin for all over the lid up to the eyebrow, Half Baked sweeped all over the lid and Smog in the crease to create a bronze smokey eye and to complete I apply my Revlon Grow Luscious mascara which is my favourite mascara at the moment.

And there we have it! This will most likely be my last post before I go away but keep your eyes peeled for a special holiday favourites post when I come back and maybe a post including my holiday photos.
Hope you're all well!
