My Holiday Make-Up

I am just back from my holidays in Portugal and had an amazing time. I apologise for the delay in replying to comments and general lack of interaction. As of today I am back normal.
Anyway I flew with only hand luggage! This meant I could only bring a maximum of 10kg and 100mls on the plane. I felt this entire task should be documented as for me this was nearly an impossible task.
This is what I ending up bringing and to my surprise it was more than enough.

Origins Vitazing
I normally use this every day underneath my make up but on holiday I used it by itself to give myself a tiny bit of coverage at the pool. It also contains Spf 15 which was a bonus.

Rimmel Wake Me Up
This is currently my favourite foundation and I used it every evening. The only thing was that I should have brought a shade darker with me as after a few days in the sun this colour was way too light on me.

Bourjois Bronzer 
I just used this to darken up my foundation. I didn't bother with contouring on holidays which is very unlike me.

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium
This product was a godsend for keeping my makeup in place on the hot summer evenings. I just dusted a tiny amount over my foundation.

Mac Powder Blush Well Dressed
I am actually ashamed to admit I did not use this blush once. I could have easily just taken one!

Mac Blush Creme Lilicent 
I wore this blush every evening. It was perfect formulation for holidays as my skin was drier from all the sun and it was nice to have a cream blush rather than applying powder. 

Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme Rose Gold
This was the ideal holiday product as it looked lovely in the evenings after having spend the day in the sun. It gives a beautiful healthy glow to your skin.

Naked 2 Palette
My friend took Naked 1 so we both shared the palettes and we definitely had more than enough colours to work with.  

Chanel Crayon Kohol Eye Liner Black
I dont have much to say about this product as it is the same one I use regularly at home and an all-time favourite of mine. I just use it on my waterline and find it never budges.

Max Factor False Lash Effect
This is just the mascara I am currently working my way through. I am enjoying it and definitely think I will repurchase it. It was my birthday whist I was away and one of my presents was the Dior mascara primer (review to follow) and that combined with the Max Factor mascara gave me amazing lashes!

Mac Cremesheen Lipstick Creme Cup
 This is another product I did not reach for once! I don't think I was feeling the baby pinks whilst I was away. Before I went away I had seen Kim Kardashian wearing the most beautiful pink lip and cheek combo. This was what inspired me to bring all the pale pink products.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 54 Boy
This is my lipstick staple and I wear it constantly. It is my lips but better colour so I tend not to wear much else.

Mac Cremesheen Glass Going Casual
This gloss was brought to match my Creme cup which I didn't wear so I also neglected this gloss on holidays. I didn't wear gloss at all which was strange because I would normally reach for gloss over lipstick.

Maybelline Popsticks Crystal Pink
I used this as my lip balm and applied whilst I was beside the pool. It was lovely and moisturising and also gave a lovely tint to the lips. I have reviewed it here.

Do you struggle deciding what makeup to bring on holidays? Id love to know your holiday essentials. Let me know in the comments below.
