I'm one bagging so trying to go light, I'd like to hear what you all pack - here are mine:

Tinted facial sun block - Skinceuticals
Biore sun block
Bobbi Brown stick foundation
Nars multiplier in Orgasm [for blush]
Probably a set of cheap powder shadows - I have the Naked3 dupes
some eye shadow cream sticks
Prestige black eyeliner
A couple of mac lipsticks- probably Plumful and Fuschia

Laura mercier Tinted moisturiser - foundation is way to heavy for vacations.
Bobbi brown nudes pallet
Another Bobbi brown pallet with brighter colours
Lancôme mascara (waterproof)
Mac lips x 2 (one nude and one red)

That's it for me.

Moisturiser with spf 50
That was literally it. I was away for 3wks in Europe and it was so very hot. I wore what i had. That was it.

Under eye concealer, mascara, brown eyeshadow for brows and eyes, sheer lipstick.

I've conceded to the fact that if I bring anything else to a hot climate, it just sits in the suitcase until I leave again.

For make up I just take blusher and lipstick.

For skincare I take face wash, daytime moisturiser and night cream. I also use a separate SPF cream for my face. I would hate to plaster my face with foundation in hot weather.

Mascara (black no7), eyeliner (blackest purple no7), lancome bronzer (with brush attatched) and a lip crayon (no7 pinky nude)

Skincare wise hot cloth cleanser, toner & night cream then use factor 50 during the day on my face.

Mineral foundation
Powder blusher
Gel eyeliner
Eyebrow powder
Lip stain
Lip balm
Small eyeshadow compact

Usually wear an all day high factor sunscreen underneath if in a hot climate, though we don't always holiday in hot places (never do beach hols). I usually use liquid blush/foundation at home but switch to powders as much as possible on holiday to reduce the amount of liquids as I tend to do carry on only.

Red lipstick
Peachy lipstick

I don't wear a lot of make-up and not on an everyday basis.
Holiday this year - Devon- so hopefully nice weather .

I'll take:
my Ultrasun Factor 30 Face as daily moisturiser/sun protection

eyebrow pencil or Gimme Brow (Benefit) because mine are rubbish sad

couple of Barry M eyeliner pencils - soft with a slight glimmer

mascara - I use "They're Real" but I think it will be too much so I'm going to try the No7 in the gold tube

lip balm (Nuxe) for night-time and a Burts Bees tinted one for colour

I have a mineral blusher/eyeshadow trio set that I bought years ago and I just keep for holidays

travel brushes set

heavy duty hair protector (my hair is dyed)

everything else counts as toiletries not make up .(shampoo , shower gel,conditioner,suncream)

Face Atelier foundation, just apply a sheer amount over my sunscreen. Givenchy waterproof mascara with the wrecking ball spiky brush! Few lipsticks day/night, Avon super shock liner in beige for day, blackberry for night, Mac mineralise lightest golden glow, love that stuff, my anastasia dipbrow (stays on and doesn't move even when swimming which I do a LOT of) MAC moisture rich concealer for night I always seem to get a spot. MUFE loose white setting powder, and NARS orgasm blush. Oh and nail polish- someone told me a trick that works, choose your colour, put it on, when it's nearly dry, add another coat, then before that dries number 7 topcoat- looks like gel but lasts for ever! But I never quite believe it so I always take my nail colour along with me too.
