Bank Holiday minmizing

Hallelujah I managed to find a bit of time to get a blog post up today :) 
This month and next are definetly the dreaded deadline months but hopefully it will be worth it soon !
I mentioned in my last post that I went away to Center Parcs for the Easter bank holiday and although it's not the most glamourous destanation I thought I'd share with you what make up I took and how I 'minmized'.
Saying that I'm now thinking theres a lot I took that I really didn't need but hey a girl needs choices!

Base - 

For foundation I opted for the Rimmel Match perfection in the shade Ivory. I really like this because it gives a nice ammount of coverage while giving the skin a lovely healthy glow. I'm really impressed with this and I've been reaching for it over my usual more high end foundations. I also chucked in the Mac face and body(C2), this is such an odd foundation and its certainly one thats best suited to the summer but hey I'm trying to get on with it a bit more.
I also popped the Smashbox Photo finish oil - free primer in my bag , just because it's the best primer I'v used but if I'm honest the peaceful countryside didn't require a primer.
For concealor it had to be my favourite combination of the Collection lasting perfection and the Rimmel wake me up Concealor . 

Cheeks and lips -

Of course the Laura Mercier colour-to-go palette had to come on my jolly travels, it's just perfect, you've got everything in this teeny little container.
I've got my eye on a full size of the bronzer come payday and maybe another of the Lip glace if only for the smell.... OH MY GAWD!!! beautiful.
I also packed the Balm frat boy blush because it's a lovely natural blush that enhances that natural countryside glow.
So lipswise I really over packed and had every option well and truly covered.
I wore all the nude shades but to be honest the Hourglass Opaque Rouge(Muse) was a little excessive but hey you never know when you need a red lip.
I also took Mac shy Girl , Clarins instant light , Maybelline colour sensesational shine gloss in the shade glorious grapefruit and my current favourite the Smashbox Be legendary lipstick (posy pink) which is just the most perfect spring time pink.


As for eyes I kept it all very simple and didn't stray too far from my everyday favourites I popped along the Naked 1 palette - I've still not caved and bought the naked 3, my Sister has it and everytime I look at it I think I just wouldn't use it. I do however have my beady eye on the Smashbox full exposure palette .
I also took along the Nars Kalahari duo, Bobbi Brown eye brow pencil,Topshop magic liner and Mascara's from Maybelline and Chanel.

So there you have it what I took on my bank holiday weekend.
There's a real mixed bag of everything and I'm trying to use bit more of a mix between drugstore and highstreet make up.
Hope you enjoyed this ,didn't find it too long maybe it's given you some inspiration for the next bank holiday. Another reason to love this time of year?
