What's In My Holiday Make Up Bag?

As you're reading this, I'll be in Ibiza - probably chilling on a beach or making the most of the all you can eat breakfast buffet (I'll take all the croissants, please).  So, I thought I'd share with you what's in my holiday make up bag. I don't like to wear much make up whilst abroad, in a warm country, AT ALL so I've kept it simple with just 5 products that will be pretty much all I use whilst away...

During the days, all I'll really be using on my face is the Origins Vitazing SPF 15 Tinted Moisturiser. In 30 degree + heat, I can't think of anything worse than having a face full of foundation. But I still like to give my skin a bit of summin' summin' so this tinted moisturiser is a great shout as it's an extremely light base that evens out my skin tone and also has the bonus of an added SPF. I was a bit freaked out the first time I used this as it comes out a grey-ish colour, but that soon turns to a much more skin-friendly tone when you start to rub it into your face. I actually find the shade of this a bit too dark for my natural colour so it's perfect for when I'm away and have a bit of a tan.
On evenings, I like to wear a bit more make up as I'll be going out for meals and drinks so it's nice to make a bit of an effort, right? The weather will still be in the mid twenties, though, even after 8pm so I'll be sticking with a light base, again, and opting for the Clinique CC Cream. I actually think this product is quite thick for a CC cream and I'd say it gives a medium coverage, rather than light. However, it still feels a bit lighter, and more moisturising, than a standard foundation.
To add a bit of definition and colour to my face, I'll be relying on the Soap and Glory Solar Powder. I use the darker shade for contouring and, the lighter, as a bronzer. S&G did seriously good with this powder as it allows you to achieve a really natural contoured look - unlike some bronzer's which leave me looking like I have a streak of mud on either cheek.
To give my face a bit of a glow, I'll be reaching for the No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter. This cream-based highlighting stick has a subtle, shimmery finish that makes you look glowy, but not glittery. The best kind. It's a handy little product to have as it doesn't require a brush and is really easy to just blend in on the go.
For my eyes, I'll be using my go-to mascara; Clinique High Impact. I've used this for years and, as I have sensitive eyes, I'm way too scared to try and switch to anything else as I know this doesn't cause any irritation. What I love about this mascara is that it really doesn't budge once it's on - which is ideal when you're in a warm climate as other mascaras, I've found, can often leave black smudges under your eyes which is naaat a good look. 
And that's pretty much it! I might add a sweep of eyeshadow or a pop of lipstick if I'm feeling a bit sassy some nights and I might find the effort to do my eyebrows but, overall, I'll be keeping my make up pretty simple during my week away.
