So I always need to force for myself to cut down on makeup when I travel, because in reality you just can't bring everything! So as I am super excited for my 5 day trip to Maui, I had to choose my necessary makeup haul to bring with me along with me. Along with some fun Hawaiian colours for the Trip!
Makeup Bag - Clinique
So I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to foundation, I have a serious complex with the red spots on my brow and chin, which I constantly fix throughout a day. So because of that I am bringing my main haul of foundation including two concealers (one liquid, one stick), a mousse foundation and a pressed powder foundation. I probably will only end on wearing a little concealer and mousse, but I won't know till I get there! (4 more days!) Also I just purchased the pressed powder, it is a tad darker then my skin tone with the hopes it will match my tanned skin. TIP: When going somewhere sunny always expect to get a tan and bring foundation that's a shade or two darker depending on the length of your stay! Also look for foundations with SPF 15 etc. so that it help keep your skin safe!

I am bringing two blushes with me to matches my lipsticks and eye shadow. Although it doesn't show to well in the picture the blush to the left is an orangey nude and the one to the right is a hot pink. These are both great colours for summer and for a fun holiday look! I bought the FIT me! blush today just for the trip! I thought it would be a nice warm colour for the long days in Hawaii!
Ps. And although with my previous post a while back on the Dream Bouncy Blush, I have not grown entirely fond of it, but once you learn how to get the right amount of pigment with your fingers it snot the worst thing and it generally does the job well.

Lips! My favourite! Also why I took so many pictures. This had to be the hardest decision for what to bring on this trip. And if my makeup bag could hold it I would be bringing every single lipstick I own (note to self: buy a bigger makeup bag!), but since I can't these were my top 6 choices. I brought two hot bright pinks, a nude, an orange, a pale pink and a tinted pink lip balm. All these will hopefully suffice for the trip and I hopefully won't be dreaming of some colour I forgot. That's always the worst. I have luckily enough matched up these lipsticks with different outfits, I know I will use them all. Hopefully. Also remember to protect your lips! The Baby Lips has SPF 15 and I am also bringing along a clear SPF 20 Lip gloss along with my to apply on top of all my lipsticks (why isn't that in this post? stupid me.) Protect your skin! That includes your lips!

So first off. This is a super small picture. I am not 100% amazing with computers and I can't get the little box to come up and fix the size. So. Ya.. Any who; I am bringing my Stila - In the Light Eye Shadow Palette on the trip! I find its a nice simple palette so I can smear a little eye shadow on before going out for the day or going for a nice dinner. Nothing too special about it and I'm not much of an eye shadow person anyway (I'm all about the lips!). Its an essential palette for me because I am in love with shimmery eye shadows lately (I used to absolutely hate eye shadow. Oh how we change!). But this will be a fun palette to play with!
Again! Horrid size for these pictures but perfect for the first two. Anyway! These are my essential touch up pieces, including my eyebrow kit, my eyelash curler, my 3 main brushes and a small tube of Buxon Lash Mascara I bought for the trip. I think if I had to choose anything to bring it would be this little group of items and my foundation. I could live without the rest. I would just rather not have to! The brushes are Sephora Brand and the first brushes I have ever owned (got them for Christmas from my parents! Thank You!), and after trying them all, these are my favourite. the left one for blending concealer, adding pressed powder and blush, middle for eye shadow and right one for eyebrows. The little eyebrow kit came with a brush but this one is a thinner brush and I can be more précises with it! (As my language changes to French for the word precise. Lovely.)
(Put everything away then realizing I didn't say what everything was. Great. Pull it all out again.)

SO! I hope this will help anyone who is going on a sunny holiday anytime soon, with little tips or ideas on what to bring! AND always remember to protect your skin! Yes. Even your lips can burn. They're not superman. Remember to have fun, don't stay on your computer the whole trip (I'm not even bringing mine. Shocker!), get a nice tan, go on early morning walks, and look beautiful in whatever you wear head, toes and face! Good Luck and I wish you all the best on your travels!
