What's In My Holiday Travel Makeup Bag? 2014

I can't believe it's the end of May, the year's flying by at warp speed. It seems just like yesterday that we were planning our annual trip to Florida and it''s here, we jet off for the sunshine state on Wednesday (yay). I don't know about you but I'm certainly a procrastinator when it comes to packing, I hate it! I always wait until the day before. To add insult to injury I'm a serial over packer, which I'm sure I've mentioned before, if the kitchen sink fit in my carry on, it would be coming along for the trip too haha.

This year I made it my mission to pack only what I "need" it took time, a lot of umming and arring but I think I've finally done it. Let me know how you think I did?

What's In My Holiday Make Up Bag?
I managed to fit all my beauty and nail products in this Floozy Travel Roll which I got years ago, it's perfect as it has little compartments, so lets start:

Holiday Beauty Edit 2014
Kiehls Micro-Blur Skin Porferctor / Nars Tinted Moisturiser / Nars Creamy Radiance Concealer / Maybelline Dream Matte Powder / Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil / Nars Pro Prime Smudge Prof Eyeshadow Base / Urban Decay All Nighter Spray / Sample of Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation.

Holiday Beauty Edit 2014
Urban Decay Naked Palette / Dior Blush & Bronzer Duo / Clarins Instant Light Complexion Profector / Stila Gladiola Cream Blush / Mac Hue Lipstick / Lipstick Queen Sheer Lip Crayon / Bourjois Velvet Lipstick in Hot Pepper & Ping Pong / Clinique High Impact Mascara / Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Blue & Bronze / Pixi Oyster Eyeliner / Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Profector in 2.

What's In My Holiday Make Up Bag?
Bourjois Hand & Feet Nail Polish Remover / Toe Separators / Essie Butler Please / China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy / China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer / Zoya Trixie / L'Oreal Nouvelle Vogue / Ciate Headliner / Ciate Big Yellow Taxi / Ciate Underwear / Seche Vite Topcoat.

Considering I normally take three or four options for each category, I'm pretty proud of this little selection. There is probably more nail polish that I actually need but I'm compromising haha.

Ok, lets move on to skincare and hair stuff, this is where I always go overboard, but again I stuck to the less is more philosophy, starting with the tresses:

Mini Bumble & Bumble Mending Shampoo & Conditioner / Bumble & Bumble Tonic Lotion / Mini Nuxe Multi Purpose Oil / Bumble & Bumble Texture Undressing Cream / Mini Macadamia Deep Repair Masque / Garnier Ultimate Blends Oil Sample / Mini Soap & Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel.

Mini Omorovicza Cleansing Foam /  Mini Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Mist / Ren 3 in 1 Cleansing Water / Hydraluron / Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser / Mini Glamglow Mud Mask / Mini Ren Glycolactic Renewal Mask / Mini Murad Moisturiser / Mini Zelens Face Oil / Mini tubs of a few other things (can't remember what, that' not good is it)

There we have it, though it looks like a lot when grouped together for this post it's still way less than I would normally take, plus the less I take the more I can bring home, oh the silver lining haha.

Let me know what you think of my little selection, Is there anything I've forgotten?

XOXO Claire
