Whats in My Holiday Makeup Bag...

Sunday, October 14, 2012

I'm off on holiday to Amsterdam on Tuesday so I thought this would be a great opportunity to share with you some of my travel essentials to make sure I'm suitably beautified throughout my trip.

My makeup bag is from Boots No.7, I think it was a free gift with purchase years ago but I'm not 100%, what I do know though is that it holds absolutely loads of products while still being fairly compact. I take far too many products on holiday so its good to have the space to keep it all. I love how it also has a little brush holder, I keep my brushes in a roll so I've been using this for pencil and lip products.

This Famous by Sue Moxley complete kit is perfect for travelling, It has just about everything you need to create a multitude of looks, I can't give this little palette enough praise, plus it has a fantastic mirror which is great as sometimes hotels have wonky wall mirrors.
This kit is no longer on sale however the new Famous palettes are similar.

I hate flying so hopefully I will get back in one piece haha.
