When it comes to everyday essentials, I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that make-up is up there for me. I've never been a 'hair' kinda girl, but I must say I do love a bit of 'slap'.
As I've dedicated today's posts to the theme of holiday, I thought I'd throw in one about my holiday make-up bits. I like to travel light-ish, opting for little variety in base products and choosing a few versatile ones for eyes and lips. Below is the make-up bag I'm packing for our trip and its contents. The bag is from Boots and is a super cute and quirky international print on lovely pastel colours. It has a matching wash bag too! I bought them for our trip to Paris last May and they've since had a re-design though this is similar if it's something you like.

A lot of these products are not my go to, every day items and I choose to travel with them because they are either miniature or long-lasting as I'm not easily able to re-apply throughout the day. It seems like a lot, I am the kind of lady that likes to wear a full face, even on holiday. On a hot day of sight-seeing I can be known to look a little bit of a mess but hey, I try!
