They had some great suggestions for the essential items i should take with me.
Here are the items I tried and have decided to take with me...
Garnier BB cream in medium.
Moisturiser, SPF and foundation in one.
Its not too heavy but has good coverage.
My skin felt really soft, and not at all greasy.
Number 7 Extreme Length waterproof mascara in black.
Great colour, light but not too thin.
Stays on well even after lightly rinsing my face but doesn't pull your eyelashes out when removing like some other waterproofs do.
Rimmel London Match Perfection Blush for light skin.
Its a bronzer and blusher in one.
Not too heavy on top of the tinted moisturiser.
Really handy for the transition from day to evening make-up.
Liz Earle Eye Pencil in Black.
Really nice shade, not too dark and is quite creamy so can be blended really easily.
Lancome Juicy Tube in Fraise
I love Juicy Tubes, not too sticky but they last well and they taste great (sounds odd but it's true!).
This one has a great tint.
I now have a small make-up bag with just the above items in. Plenty of 'holiday make-up' pictures to follow!
