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] Mascara 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) Cleanser/toner/moisturiser
Double wear light Dior Air powder Shadow concealer Cheapie powder blusher Rita Ora for Rimmel lipstick/balms in dark pink, red and coral Eyebrow pencil Eyeko black mascara - amazing staying power, though had eyelashes tinted so didn't use it much Black eye pencil Charcoal eye crayon thing, use it every day
Primer Mineral foundation Powder blusher Gel eyeliner Eyebrow powder Lip stain Lip balm Mascara 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.
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.
