Real Technique Brushes

So if you follow me on twitter, I have been literally counting down the days until I go over to my nan's for a week to hit Cardiff for a spot of Christmas shopping. I have literally saved for 4 months and I cannot wait to finally start my Christmas shopping and what better place then my fave place in the world Cardiff. So as always when you go on holiday or short breaks as I'm calling this one, you have to narrow your makeup collection into one small bag. So lets take a look at what I'm bringing this time.

First off, I will point out I don't have any eye shadow in here just due to the fact I haven't decided on what I'm bringing yet. Its a toss up between Clarins The Essentials palette and Stila in the light palette. Moving on to what is actually in my makeup bag. Starting with base, I try to keep my base pretty simple, as I suffer with acne, I like to draw more attention to other areas lips, eyes etc, so I keep my base minimal. My skin is super oily at the moment and the only thing for the job is my new Bourjois Happy Light Matte primer, which I have only used once and left my skin lovely and gave it a rather nice glow, I also have Revlon Colourstay in here. This is the best oil control foundation that suits my winter coloring. Moving onto concealers, I have three which may seem a tad obsessive. Well I have one for spots/blemishes, redness etc which is Collection Lasting Perfection, I have one for brightening the eye area up which is YSL Touche Eclat and then I have one that covers up dark circles which is Maybelline eraser eye. Then to set all that I usually use a light dusting of Mac MSF Natural. 

To add a little touch of colour to my face I have included two blushes, one is Nars Deep Throat and the other is NYX Rosey. I am also bringing my Nars Laguna bronzer. Then to add glow, I am bringing Bourjois Java Rice Powder and Mac Soft and Gentle. This is my favourite winter highlighter. 

For my eyes I have included my Maybelline Falsies and because I am just keeping my brows au natural at the moment, I am just bringing my clear mascara from essence. Lastly for lips, I am bringing three there are Mac See Sheer, Mac Hue and Rimmel Notting Hill Nude. I also am bringing my two favourite nail polishes at the moment, both from Nails Inc and they are Big Apple Red &; Electric Avenue, they are the perfect christmassy combo. 

For Brushes, I am bringing my Real Techniques Powder Brush, Buffing Brush, Contour Brush For highlighter and blush brush. I am also bringing my fave brush from Blank Canvas Cosmetics and that's the F20 brush, its perfect for flawless foundation. For eyes I'm bringing Sigma E25 and E35

So there you have it, my travel makeup bag. Hope you enjoyed this post. I will be uploading some Christmas Gift Guides starting Monday so stick around for those. 

Have a great weekend.
