Travel Makeup Bag

I am finally going on holiday this week to see my dad in Spain, and although I still plan on wearing a fairly full face of makeup I decided to really cut back on the products I take. I will after all be going to see my family so there is no reason to look overly fancy. For lips I am taking just three options, a tinted lip balm which is my everyday choice; By Terry Baume De Rose in shade Toffee Cream, MACs Lip Pencil in Soar for a mauve lip option and NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi which is my favourite brown lip at the moment. My base of choice in warmer weather is Chanel Perfection Lumiere it just seams to work better on my skin when it is a little oiler. I am also taking the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Concealer though just in case I get any blemishes. For my brows I am just taking NYX Tinted Brow Mascara and I am trying a new liner this time the  Revlon Colourstay Eyeliner which I have been trying out, I don't love it but it will do for the holiday. I have a travel size Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Mascara in black, I actually use the brown shade of this a lot so I know I love the formula. It looks really natural but can be built up for quite a bit of volume. And lastly make up wise I have packed 2 NYX High Definition Blushers in shade for a peachy blush, and as my contour. Both of which I love to wear as eyeshadow also. 
To apply my foundation I have packed an original Beauty Blender and a Micro Mini to apply concealer, both of which I dampen with the Liz Earle Skin Tonic to tone my skin while making a really natural looking base. Skincare wise I just have a travel size of the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm and Age Support Cream and a few sample serums I had saved up. I will be taking my Laura Mercier travel brush set as well but that will go in my hand luggage as I would be pretty mortified if I lost them. 
I will still have posts going up while I am away and hopefully I will have a holiday blog when I get back if I manage to take some nice pictures. For now though I hope you all have a good two weeks whatever your plans. Ciao xxx
