I've had the morning to myself today as Hubble has taken Alfie out to a rugby tournament so I thought I'd get a head start on my pre-holiday beauty prep! So far I've tinted my eyelashes (not the easiest thing to do yourself!), waxed my 'tache(ahem!), applied lashings of gradual tan lotion, coloured my roots & given myself a pedicure. My hair is getting cut & blow dried on Tuesday morning so I can get up & go on Wednesday - one less thing for me to do! I'm doing my friends' nails for them on Tuesday so I won't do my own nails until Tuesday night after I've packed the last couple of bits & bobs so I don't ruin them.
I've also sorted out & packed my makeup & skincare to take with me as I won't need these before we go - another tick off my packing list! Seeing as we booked cases on in the end, I'm taking more than is probably necessary but a couple of bits I'll finish off whilst I'm there so they won't be coming home with me. So here's what I'm taking -
My makeup bag from Muji is fantastic. It's double sided with plenty of pockets & spaces to keep things neat & tidy! They don't have this exact model anymore but they have this one which is very similar. There's tons of room left in it so I might just put all my skincare in there too, one bag less to take!
Makeup wise, I'm going to decant into the teeny tiny posts my Boujois Bronzing BB & Revlon Photoready BB & that's my face sorted - nothing heavy & definitely no powder. I will, however, take this dinky tube of Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer to cover up my persistant scars on my face. To add a healthy flush in the evenings I'm taking my Bourjois Cream Blush & a tiny pot of mineral powder bronzer by Bare Minerals that I picked up in TK Maxx.
For my eyes, I just have 2 eyeshadow pencils in charcoal & bronze by Barry M & a mini Lancôme Hypnôse Star mascara that was part of a special offer gift set (reviewed here.)
And the last of the makeup are 3 of my favourite lip colours, Bourjois Peach Club (review here), Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple (review here) & No 7 BB Lips in Blush Pink.
Now moving on to the skincare. I bought this Rosehip trial size gift set by Trilogy a couple of weeks ago so this is the base of my skincare. It contains a cream cleanser, hydrating mist toner, facial oil & day cream. Next, I've got a miniature of Bi-facil eye makeup remover by Lancôme, a mini micellar water by B Pure, mini Hydraluron that came in a gift set & my Botanics All Bright eye roll-on to help tired eyes.
So although there looks like quite a lot, because they're all minis they take up no room at all!
I need to take a quick trip to town in the morning to get the last couple of bits that I need & then I'll get my case packed. 3 days to go....!!!
