Whats in my Spring getaway makeup bag

I’m currently packing my things as I head of to Mallorca tomorrow for an Easter break. So I thought it would be a great opportunity to share with you what makeup products I normally take for a spring/summer get-away when I have to limit myself to hand luggage and liquid restrictions.

Minis are my best friend when traveling, but I don’t like taking minis for the sake of it. If I can buy travel size products of my favourite products I do alternatively If I get given free samples or minis of products I like also save them for when I go on holidays. I have been saving this mini Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara for this exact reason, it is one of my favourite mascaras as it is both volumising and lengthening.

I always try and use products with travel friendly packages. If for water reason I really want to take a foundation with a glass bottle I normally decant it first.
In this occasion, I will be taking the Dior Diorskin Forever Cushion foundation. The packaging is ideal to travel with, it has a mirror which is really handy for on the go makeup application or touch ups and it has a light to medium coverage which is what I normally prefer when I travel to a sunny destination. It also has SPF 30 which is an added bonus.

I also like taking palettes which are compact but at the same time multitasking. The Charlotte Tilbury Look in a Palette is perfect for traveling. Its sleek and compact and it has a huge mirror inside. I love that it practically has all the powder products I will need. Neutral eye-shadows, a bronzer, a highlight and blush.

I will never forget my SPF, it is really important if you want to delay premature signs of ageing. Sometimes we wrongly think that SPF will limit the chances of getting a tan, and when you’re on holiday you need to come back with a tan right? Well that’s not exactly true, SPF will avoid sun damage but your tan will gradually build up without burning or causing damage. My favourite facial SPF is the Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 as it doesn’t leave a white cast on the face a sits under makeup beautifully.

The Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow is a must for me. Not only does it come in travel friendly packaging but it gives an amazing glow. I love layering this under my foundation, it also looks incredible on its own if you don’t want to wear makeup but you want a little something on your face. It also applies really well with fingers, no need to carry a brush.

I know I have said it a million times but Benefit really does make the perfect mini highlighters. I am really in to liquid highlighters. I love the dewy finish it gives, it also lasts longer and doesn’t leave a powdery finish. When going to a warm destination liquid highlighters are always my first pick. On this occasion I will be taking with me Benefit’s High Beam.
