Tomorrow morning I’m leaving for a city break to London (yay!). Today I’m sharing the makeup which I’ll be taking with me. I’m planning to go absolutely crazy in Boots and Space NK so I’ve kept it to a minimum, at least, I guess so?




That’s not too much right? The London map bag in the photo’s is my favorite for travelling because it fits my makeup and my brushes. I take this with me on weekends away and city breaks. It was a present from my aunt so I have no idea where to get it, there’s no label inside either.

For my base I’m taking my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to conceal my imperfections under my eyes and on my chin. To set my concealer I’m taking my beloved MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. The only blush I’m taking is my favorite at the moment, my Sleek Pixie Pink Blush. This gives such a healthy glow, I love it now it’s getting warmer.

I’m only taking 1 eyeshadow palette with me *applause*. I don’t use my Dior 5 Couleurs 609 enough so I’m bringing it with me to fall in love with it again. But before applying eyeshadows I always prime my eyelids with my Too Faced Shadow Insurance. To tight-line I’m taking this recent discovery of mine, the Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof 41 Black Party Kohl. I also like to use this as an eyeliner. If you smudge it out with a small brush then it’ll look great! I’ll slightly fill in my eyebrows with my Anastasia Brow Powder Duo Medium Brown. I love that stuff. I use my Lancôme Hypnôse Star mascara for my bottom lashes and my Le Volume De Chanel for my top lashes.

Can you tell I love my MAC Fanfare lipstick? It’s such a pretty nude. MAC On Hold is a red/brown shade which I’ve also been loving lately. Then finally, to nourish my lips a bit, the Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Punch. I think this isn’t a lot, at all. Well done me!
