Summer stunners part 1

 I always struggle what to pack on holiday, I am the kind of gal who likes to duplicate and take about 6 blushers, 2 foundations and more. This year I am flying so I have to abide by pesky airline weight limits, and there is nothing more annoying than when you are just about to check in and the person before you is over the limit. We've all been there as they try to distribute the weight desperately while showing the contents of their case to the whole airport. Not cool. 

This part (1) is going to be on my summer stunner make up. 

Mascara- my favourite mascara that can take you from the day time to the night time. Thick and Fast by soap and glory, I love this mascara it gives you big long fluttery lashes, but can be built up to give really thick full lashes.

Foundation- I have a new found love for the Bourjois healthy mix serum, it has light to medium coverage and smells amazing, plus it lasts along time on my skin even with some sunscreen over the top if it.

Concealer- collection 16 hour, covers spots hides bags and blemishes what ever it is this hides it! The skin on my face is very sensitive to some sun creams and this makes me break out. Ugh, perfect because you know that when you get back from holiday everyone will want to see pictures and hear about what an amazing time you have, there is nothing worse than having a huge zit the size of France on your forehead.

Eye shadows- I take my MUA heaven and earth pallet it is so easy as all of the colours go together really well so I don't have to spend precious beach time thinking about what eye shadows I should wear and which ones go together.

Blusher, highlighter and skin finish- Mac light year, this product is so amazing in the summer as it gives a slight shimmer to the skin, but doesn't leave your face looking like a disco ball, because nobody wants that! The colours are all quite light so I think give a easy, natural holiday makeup look.

Lips- I always take two products on holiday a lip gloss/ Carmex for the day and a lipstick for the night. The lipstick I am taking is a Kate Moss Rimmel London one in the shade 16. This is my new favourite summer colour that I can't wait to wear with a bit of a tan. 

This is a distilled version of what makeup I will be taking to Malaysia with me if you have any other recommendations of what I should include please tell me, I have a horrible feeling I have forgotten something .....

See you soon
