My Minimal Holiday Makeup Bag

I’m not one for taking tons of makeup on holiday – or hardly any if I’m honest. But this time I wanted to bring some, just in case.

I’m so indecisive and picking just one product for each category was a challenge in itself, but I managed it and though I’d share my go-to holiday picks.

Benefit Professional Primer
I love this primer as it fills in my pores making my skin look flawless. Additionally, I know that when I’m using the porefessional I can count on my makeup lasting a very long time, even in hot weather.


Bourjois Air Mat
One of my holy grail foundations! This beauty is a matte foundation without looking and feeling too matte, perfect for when your holidaying somewhere hot.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
A good all rounder concealer that you’ve probably heard tons about so I won’t bore you with rehashing it all. It covers dark circles and can be used by itself to cover redness and any spots.


Maxfactor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush
Probably my favourite cream blushers. It’s simple packaging reminds me of the Rimmel Lasting Finish blush, and although it’s small it creates a lovely flush on the cheek.


Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder
If I was bringing another foundation I would bring a powder to keep me matte, but as I am bringing Bourjois Air Mat I don’t feel as though I need to bring one. This Hourglass powder is finely milled and light preventing it becoming cakey.


Soap & Glory Solar Powder
Probably one of the best bronzers for a natural daytime look, but can also be used to contour. It gives your skin a lovely light bronzed glow, perfect for those no makeup – makeup days.

Benefit Gimme Brow

I’m so glad I have this in travel size! When your on holiday you don’t want to spend ages doing your brows, this amazing product makes it quick and easy to tame your brows while holding them in place.


Tanya Burr Cosmetics Birthday Suit Palette

This was my first Tanya Burr cosmetics purchase, and after trying this I immediately bought a few of the others. The quality of the shades and the price make this palette a great edition to your makeup bag.  The shades are a mixture of warm browns and lighter neutrals, with two of the shades being shimmers, which makes this a great everyday palette but provides the option of going darker for a nighttime smokey eye.


Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Need I say more?
