I decided to pack a smaller amount of beauty products for my trip to Miami and I tried to create more of a core beauty products kit to take with me full of the products I love to use everyday and some really great travel sized products too. I thought I'd share with you these Holiday beauty products and a little bit about why I love them.
I think I got this Teint de Peche fro, My Little Beauty in a beauty box or something but I love it. its a peachy tinted cream that gives your skin a really glowy look and I put it on before my foundation. Its so nice and really does make my skin look luminous.
My foundation of choice at the mo is the Ordinary Coverage Foundation. Its got great coverage with a nice semi dewy finish and also is a total bargain at £5.90. It took me a little bit to find my correct shade but I really love this foundation and its become my everyday one. Plus its light enough I think for holiday.
I always take a Collection concealer in my makeup bag wherever I go. Its a great all rounder product and again really affordable too. I have about 3 in a couple of shades, I like one that matches my skin tone for concealing and one lighter one for highlights.
I packed this neat travel sized Estee Lauder Micro Cleansing Foam to use in the morning and at night. Its got a really nice foaming texture and it does leave my skin really clean and fresh and the travel size is super handy.
As we are only away for 5 days I didn't pack loads and loads of sun cream but I did pack this little tube of Ultrasun Face SPF as its designed for the face so isn't too greasy. If I use general sun cream on my face I often break out in spots and this one never does that plus it has 30SPF.
This Revlon Photo ready highlighter is my all time fave highlighter. Its a gorgeous bronze colour and is sooo easy to apply in this stick form so this had to get packed. I use it on my cheekbones and brown bone and blend with my finger.
I don't go too heavy with the eye makeup on holiday but if we are off out for drinks in the evening then this Charlotte Tillbury Colour Chameleon eye crayon in the shade bronzed Garnet is really quick to create a smoky eye look. You apply to both lids and smudge and this colour is designed to bring out my natural green eye colour. Its one of my all time favourite beauty products hence why its sharpened down so much.
If I fancy more of a graphic eye liner look then I packed my Kat Von D Tattoo liner which is hands down the best eyeliner I've ever used. Its totally jet black, well pigmented and lasts really well and this little mini one is perfect for my travel bag.
A couple more Benefit products that I love to use every day are the Benefit Boiing concealer stick which is really moisturizing and great for my under eye area as its not drying. I also really love this Quickie Contour stick for a really light contour and as its a mini size it had to go in my beauty bag for Miami.
I use quite a few brow products at home, some that involved a brush etc but I wanted a really quick way to do my brows with just one product so I brought this Benefit Precisely My Brow pencil which has a fine pencil tip at one end and a brush on the other. Its really quick to use and you can create a very natural finish by sketching in your brow hairs rather than bold lines.
If I want to add some highlight above and below my brows then I've started using the Benefit High brow glow pencil which is a pencil highlighter and again is super speedy. For me when I'm away I don't want to spend hours on my makeup I like to be able to create really cute looks very quickly.
Two more cute travel sized products I packed are brand new products for me. The Benefit Dandelion Powder is a product I know so many people love, its a brightening powder and I thought it would be great for adding a holiday glow so I packed it.
I also packed this Benefit GALifornia Blush in a mini travel sized which is a gorgeous coral toned blush and again I thought it would look lovely for a sunny makeup look.
I packed two mascaras actually an Estee Lauder travel sized one for the daytime when I want just light coverage but for the evening there is no other mascara I'll use now apart from Benefit BadGalBang. I LOVE IT! It gives my lashes such a lift and just clings to my lashes better than any other I've ever tried.
For lip colour I packed these three (plus a chanel lipstick which I threw in at the last minute). I love this Lancome plumping gloss. its not too sticky and has a mild tingle that makes your lips just look a little bit fuller. I often team it with a little bit of the Lancome Lip gloss in the shade Graffiti.
Lastly of course I had to pack my beloved Burberry Suede lip cream in the shade Fawn which I honestly have not stopped wearing since it arrived and its a great brown/nude colour that goes with everything!
So that's what I packed beauty wise for my Miami trip. I'd love to know if any of these are your favourites too and if you'd love to see what clothes and accessories I packed for my trip then make sure you check out my Miami Holiday haul video!!
