On Sunday I'm going away for a few days so while sorting out what I'm bringing away with me I thought I would make a few posts - Make up | Skin Care | Shampoo etc etc. I'll only be away for 4 nights and I'm not planning on going clubbing or anything like that, its just going to be a nice relaxing spa break so maybe I wont even bother with makeup but I thought it'd be best to bring some with me so as not to scare the other guests over breakfast. I'm very thoughful like that :]
Viva Glam Nicki | Creme Cup | Speak Louder
The sun is shinin' and my lips are getting brighter. I did plan on only taking one lippy but am I the only one who feels a bit braver around people you dont know? This will be my chance to wear VGN all her glory. Creme Cup is my safe everyday option and Speak Louder is just gorgeous. I never see much on the blogosphere about Speak Louder and I really dont know why, I think its perfect.
MAC MSF Soft & Gentle | Estee Lauder DayWear B.B Creme | Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint | MAC 187 | bareMinerals Blush
I never go anywhere without Soft & Gentle now, its like my life support machine. Dramatic? Yes, but true. EL B.B Creme - just a tiny sample size but enough for a few days. I might even buy the full size tube while I'm away, its brilliant! Decanted some Sheer Skin Tint to a wee pot to save some room. Brush - to apply my war paint and bareMinerals blush in tickled for a teeny bit of colour.
Benefit Browzings | bareMinerals Curl & Definition Mascara | YSL Touche Eclat | Shavata Brow Tamer* | Urban Decay Primer Potion | Naked Palette | Lash Curlers
Even if you're only wearing tinted moisturiser and mascara, Browzings makes a huge difference and just finishes off the look. I tend to back away from the powder in fear of ending up looking like the sister of Ernie and Bert but the wax does a great job on its own. I havent really had much of a chance to try the bareMinerals mascara out yet but it'll be put to the test this week. Touche Eclat - my best friend first thing in the morning. Shavata Brow Tamer* to hold my brows in place all day. UD Primer Potion, because I cant remember the last time I wore eyeshadow without it. Dont think I even need to say which shade from the Naked Palette will be over used ;] and just a cheapy pair of curlers untill I pluck up the courage to spend over a tenner on essentially a piece of metal.
Oh, and I forgot to mention Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer. Dont know where it disappeared to in the pics. So thats everything on the makeup front. Not sure if I'll have time to do my other posts before I go but if not I'll just do them when I get home but I'll leave you with this scary thought.. If you were going away for a week and could only take one lippy,what would it be?
