As you may know, if you follow me on twitter, I have recently been in Madrid for a few days. I decided to take a suitcase with me even though I was only gone for four days mainly because I didn't want to be separated from my makeup. I will never be able to understand girls who can get on a plane and just take hand luggage, you're only allowed ten items of makeup and each of them has to be under 100ml- how the hell do you manage? I took a little bag on the plane with me with handcream, lipstick, eye cream, lip gloss and cream blusher- I couldn't survive off that for 4 days. Mini rant over, lets go into the makeup bag which cost £8 and is from boots.
It took me a long time to decide what products to take with me and eventually I decided on this set of essentials, covering skin care; haircare and make up.
I must admit, this did feel a bit excessive but I used every single product I took with me- I am definitely one who likes to do their full makeup whilst away and as we were in the city and not on the beach I didn't feel over done. My absolute favourite products were: the Umberto Giannini Calm Curls shampoo, conditioner and styling spray; The Dr Jart+ BB cream and the Avene Eau Thermale Spray.
