whats in her travel makeup bag?

so i am overly exited to be going on holiday to italy for a few days next week, and i thought i would show you guys what i am bringing with me. i forgot to photograph some things so i might do a post tomorrow showing all the things i missed out...

(left to right) 2true cheek n lip tint, benefit pocket pal, 
vaseline with rose and almond oil, MAC lipstick in creme cup

sleek sunset pallate

mascaras: (left to right) discontinued/unknown rimmel waterproof mascara, collection 2000 volume sensation mascara, l'oreal telescopic explosion mascara
pencils: (top to bottom)  soap & glory arch de triumph brow shader and highlighter, avon super shock gel eyeliner in black

the elf waterproof eyeliner pen in black and in coffee (oops, i forgot to photograph them but here is what they look like anyway hahah!)

(left to right) the body shop lip balm in watermelon, MAC paint pot in bare study, 
maybelline dream mousse blush in dolly pink (shade is discontinued)

(left to right) collection 2000 lasting perfecrion concealer in fair, sample of the clinique moisture surge tinted moisturizer,
 rimmel match perfection ultra creamy compact powder in ivory 

lip products: as you can probably tell, i am not a big lipstick/lipgloss person at all. most days i use the benetint end of my benefit pocket pal. its a lip and cheek stain and it lasts all day and it doesn't feel like you have a ton of product on your lips. i am also bringing the my 2true cheek n lip tint witch is basically the same thing but allot cheeper and not very tasty but it gives pretty much the same result.
im just throwing in vasaline and my body shop lip balm because im addicted to lip balm and my favorite nude lipstick just incase i feel like a change in lip colour.

eye products: i havnt brought any loose eyeshadows but instead i am bringing my sleek sunset palate because i got this at the start of the summer and havnt got as much use out of it as i would have liked to. bare study paint pot stays put for ever and gives a nice wash of colour to your eyelids. i am a random water proof brown mascara from rimmel for when i go swimming although i probably wont wear any makeup for that. XXL volume sensation is my 'lazy' mascara because i can put it on really fast and easily and im good to go. telescopic explosion has a long and messy application but 2 coats makes you look like your wearing false lashes.
soap and glory arch de triumph is for my eye brows and is super fast and easy to use.
i am bringing the avon gel liner pencil for my water line (but i may smudge it across my upper lash line as well) and the elf felt tip eyeliner pen for my upper lash line, witch once again is really fast and easy to use.

face products: again as you can see i dont like to wear allot of face makeup. i usually just wear some concealer under my eyes and powder on my nose and fore head (were my skin gets oily) and occasionally a bit of blush and bronzer. this little tester/sample of the clinique moisture surge tinted moisteriser has been floating about my makeup bag for a few weeks now so i thought i would bring it just incase i finally decide to try it out.
i am bringing a maybelline dream mousse blush but i will most probably use the 2true cheek n lip tint on my cheeks because it is more water proof and suitable for the hot weather.

anyhow, its just occurred to me that i have written quite allot so i think its time for me to shut up hahaha
anyway, i hope you enjoyed my first makeup post and i will see ya later!

oh so neutral...


chino's - newlook
top - H&M
shoes - newlook
neacklace - topshop

ring - topshop

i absolutley love the chino's trend at the moment. these tan chino's are from newlook and i got them in the sale reduced from £15 to £10 and for the price, they are pretty well made and the meterial is really nice.
i love this oversized nude top from H&M i think the cut out detailing is so pretty and it goes really well with the ring and necklace.
this outfit is great for summer if you live in england like me, where it is usually not hot ennough to wear dress but you dont want to wear jeans because its summer time!

shorts - primark

i also love this top with shorts, its alot more casual and instead of ballet flats, i would just wear my black converse.

anyway thats all for today. see ya later!
