I have just returned from an amazing trip to Southern California with my family. It was beautiful over on the west coast, much more chilled than New York and so nice to be by the beach again. I am now officially obsessed with palm trees though, I seriously could not get enough of them!
We went for 9 days and I decided that I wanted to fit all my makeup in one bag this time because who actually wears 5 different lipsticks for a weeks holiday anyway? So I was quite ruthless when it came to packing my makeup bag, and actually used pretty much everything I packed.
So what made the cut?

Most of these products are staples in my makeup bag, and are ones that I can depend on and suit the season. There are a lot of brown and bronzy tones color wise, along with my peachy pink lipsticks that I cannot get enough of! There are also a couple of new products like the By Terry Ombre Blackstar which I have recently reviewed and also the Laura Mercier Setting Powder which I am loving! Everything fitted neatly in my makeup bag and along with a selection of makeup brushes, I was good to go.
I can’t believe summer is nearly over (I hope you all had a good one?), but now I am looking forward to Autumn and some cooler temperatures, I haven’t worn my jeans in months!
Come and join me!
