So if you follow me on twitter you will know that I have gone away for the weekend. So I thought I would do a post on weekend beauty. I am a over packer big time but I really do try and cut down what I pack when it comes to short trips and judging from the pictures I am pretty proud I only bought 2 lipsticks. I am however doing peoples makeup while I'm over there so I do have a few extra things in my kit but this is my personal stash.
First off for the base I am keeping it simple. I have opted for ELF Mineral Face Primer and then for foundation I am bringing Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum simply as I have run out of my fave Revlon one and hope to pick it up while I'm over there. The Bourjois one is the only one that matches me in my collection at the moment. To seal the deal I am using Nars Translucent Powder In Crystal. This is a gorgeous light reflecting setting powder. I am bringing my fave Nars Blush that being Final Cut which I believe was limited edition but I've seen it on a few websites oh and to get rid of any blemishes cause I have loads at the moment I have included Nars Radiant Concealer. Then I added my Bourjois Bronze and Highlighter as I just want to test it out before I review it as I haven't used it much since I got it.
For the eyeballs I have the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Creamy Beige as the perfect everyday shade and also perfect base shade. I thought I would pack my Smashbox Full Exposure Palette as I can create day and night looks with that one and then for mascara I am trailing a new one from Bourjois called the 1 second mascara. I have used this twice and I'm not sold yet so only time will tell.
As for lips I am being very good, I only have two for myself....little secret I had three in my handbag. I like options what can I say. Also I had another 4 in my kit so a total of 9 lip colours. LMAO I really do have issues. Anyway the shades I bought were MAC Syrup, the perfect everyday berry ish lip and a new edition to my collection Barry M Cor Balmy in Jam Jar.
So that is what I packed for a weekend trip away. I am going out shopping with a friend and probably going to the local shops and then I'm going to a 70th Birthday party which I will have a post up on Friday.
What would you bring on a weekend away? Have I got too many lipsticks lol?
When this post goes live its my Nan's 70th so 'Happy Birthday Nan' (she don't even have internet, she will never see this haha)
