What's in my make-up bag - The holiday edition

By the time you read this I'll be enjoying myself on holiday in Warsaw hopefully eating and drinking far too much while soaking up the sights. I thought i'd give you a little sneak peak about what make up I take away on holiday for a city break.

This gorgeous Ted Bake floral make up bag was gifted to me from Surfdome. Surfdome stock such a lovely collection of Ted Baker bags so it's worth a look! It's just the right size to carry all your essentials plus some more!

Chanel Rouge Allure 99 Pirate
F&F Lips Mistress c/o
Topshop All About Me
Revlon Crème Brulee Lip Butter
Carmex Strawberry Tube
Gosh Velvet Touch Lip Pencil in 003 Cardinal Red c/o

This year I've gotten into lipstick in a huge way especially a red lip. It's something I've always admired from afar but only just gotten the confidence to be able to wear it out. It's my favourite colour for when I go out for drinks or dinner. I've chosen to take a few different reds - terrified to smash the Chanel whilst under the influence! - and a vibrant pink for something a little different. The Revlon Lip Butter is the perfect shade for the day.

Topshop Neon Rose Crème Blush
He-Shi Fusion Multi Bronze c/o
Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzer

I'm a bronzer girl through and through and very rarely venture into Blush. The Bourjois bronzer is perfect for everyday use as it's very matte whereas the He-Shi bronzer is my favourite for night time. It produces such a gorgeous colour and has just the right amout of shimmer.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Emerveille 82
Avon 8-in-1 Eye Palette The Nudes c/o
Bourjois Khol and Contour Ultra Black
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
George Lash Trend in Black c/o

This Chanel cream eyeshadow is such a beauty. Subtle yet it still packs a punch. It's the perfect eyeshadow to go from day to night and can be jazzed up with a touch of khol. The Avon Palette had my name written all over it - neutrals are the way forward! Concealer is a must when you're out all night partying yet have to be up at the crack of dawn seeing the sights!

OPI The Spy Who Loved Me
Seche Vite top coat

Finally you can't go wrong with red nails eh? OPI is my favourite brand and I couldn't resist picking up the James Bond collection from TK Maxx. It had a slight gold shimmer in it that looks stunning when it catches the light.

Is there anything i've missed out in my make-up collection? What do you take on a city break?
