Call of Beauty: Summer Holiday Addition

In case the new backdrop behind my posts this week hasn't given it away, and my few tweets, I've been on holiday this last week. My family and I headed down south for a week in Torquay, and are heading back today. I thought it may be nice to do a post on the few things I took with me. I didn't take much make-up wise (for me) as I wanted to embrace the natural look, but here is what I did take:

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer
Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

MAC Pro Palette
Stilla Natural Eyes Palette
MAC Painterly
Loreal Super Liner
MUA Eye Primer
Max Factor High Defintion Mascara
Gosh Liner in 015
Sleek Brow Kit

Chanel Bronze Universal
Benefit Watts Up

Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie
Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

I  ended up needing hardly any of it, and did go make-up free most days, but for the few evenings we went out (we usually go out every night, but the place we stayed was so nice we decided to stay in quite a lot,) it was nice to be able to play about a bit.

Skincare, Morning:

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
Good Things Miracle Mattifier
Good Things  Bright Eyes Eye Cream
Garnier Vital Restore Moisturiser


Nivea Cleansing Lotion
Nivea Daily Esstentials Eye Make-up Remover
Origins Super Spot Remover
Garnier Youthful Radiance
Avene Cleanace K
N Spa Toner
Garnier Under Eye Roll On

Keep your eyes peeled for some evening face of the days as I have post lined up (I can feel your excitement.)

What are your holiday essentials?

  1. I love Good Things' skincare x

  2. I wasn't allowed to take as much away as you :'( I always just use the same as at home but a 'stronger' moisturizer because my skin gets dryer by the sea. Looking forward to seeing your face posts :) xxxx

    1. Aw :( I did get a 'how much,' comment haha!
      Yes it is so much drier by the sea :)
      Thank you :)


  3. Can't wait to see your face. i travel with practically my whole make up bag! i'm so indecisive!

  4. The items you bought are really lovely! I'm sure you made some gorgeous day and night looks out of them :) Really want to try Liz Earle products and the Wake Me Up foundation!

  5. I have to have my clarins skincare with me as I have very sensitive skin its the only thing i can use and like you I like to go natural makeup wise so when I go on holiday next week I will be taking a collection of mascaras i think can live without that on holiday xx


Thank you so much for you comment, it really brightens my day.
