What are my holiday make-up must-haves????

Today's post is all about what I take make-up I take with me when I'm travelling. Now this is for a two week holiday in Cyprus so of course if I were going for a weekend in Paris or a few days in New York I would take completely different things but for where I'm going and what I plan on doing these are the bits I am taking. This is make-up that is going in my suitcase on the plane not things I take in my hand-luggage but I am planning on doing another post about what I take as hand-luggage so look out for that at some point this week.

When I'm on holiday somewhere hot (apparently Cyprus is 38 degrees centigrade at the moment!) I wear very little make up and when I do wear it I just want a light coverage and some colour. I also make sure I always take concealer with me in case I burn on my face, that way I can cover up some of the redness at night. So to make this easier I am going to section this off in to face, eyes and lips.

Face - During the day I wear no make-up on my face at all. But at night I tend to use a few different products, this time I am taking six products for my face. I have a tinted moisturiser just to even out my skin tone and I also have my concealer to cover redness or breakouts. I then have my bronzer which is great to bring out my tan and two blushers that I can switch between, one is a bright pink and the other more of a coral pink. Finally I have a highlighter which I don't use very often but is nice on holiday just to give a bit more sparkle to your face. All of my bronzers, blushers and highlighters are powder formulars as cream products just tend to fall of my face in hot weather.

Eyes - Again during the day I wear very little make-up on my eyes and the most will probably only be a swipe of waterproff mascara just to make my eyes look fresh and awake. For the evenings I am taking only one set of eyeshadow as I tend to just stick with a brown smokey eye at night which isn't too heavy or dark and looks good with a tan. I then have a black kohl eyeliner and two mascaras, one for the top lashes and one for the bottom.

Lips - Lipstick is my big downfall when going away as I can never only take one or two. This time I am taking 5 which may seem a bit excessive but I like to have a choice.For a gloss I tend to stick to the same one over the top of most lipsticks and the one I like is by 2true and just says 1 on the lable so I'm guessing thats the colour. I may also take another lipgloss and if I do it will be a GOSH lipgloss in 0082 but I don't have pictures of either of these glosses.  I also take lots of lip balms but I will mention more about those in my hand-luggage post.
