What's in my weekend away make up bag...

weekend away make up essentials

I decided to share with you my make up choices for our weekend away in Oxford. I took few trusty items which are proven to be useful in various situations - from a fresh daytime look to a night-time glam. My base products were from Bourjois - I've picked Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer, 123 Perfect CC Cream, and 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream - since I wanted to achieve a healthy glow. For my eye make up I took MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer which is my favourite eye primer, MUA Undress Me Too palette which is really versatile and light and Bourjois Twist-Up The Volume mascara which I am yet to review on the blog properly although I've mentioned it on my YouTube Channel a couple of times - lately it is my favourite mascara and I love how it delivers the promise of voluminous lashes. I also took Bourjois Blush in Rose de Jaspe that is a perfect understated shade. My lip products were Burt's Bees Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit, Revlon Lip Butter in Cotton Candy and a more statement shade - MAC Flat Out Fabulous. Some additional items which I always make sure to carry in my make up bag are Cath Kidston Blossom Hand Cream and Next Gold Eau de Parfum - both are miniature and light, so perfect for travelling.
