What's in my make up bag / Rome edition

Sunday, May 17, 2015

Tristan, his two friends and I are leaving on our holiday to Rome in a few hours. I've never been to Italy, I am really excited as I have read that Rome is beautiful at this time of the year. It will be quite hot (about 30 degrees) and I am sure we'll be doing a lot of walking around the city. Heat and make up don't always work well on my oily skin but I just couldn't resist not taking any make up with me.

I won't be wearing much make up during the day but we will still go out in the evenings, so it would be nice to give my eyes a bit of colour. I recently bought a Barry M Shadow & Glow Summer Love Palette for £7. It was such a bargain and the palette is made up of beautiful summer colours. I'll be using this once we reach Rome and will be reviewing it later.
My L'Oreal Nude Magique Anti-Redness CC Cream will be coming with me to give my face a bit of coverage when I need it. I've not used it very much so far, so I'm hoping it is useful. It gives skin a natural tone and helps to neutralise the appearance of redness. I can get a perfect nude look with lightweight coverage using this cream. To keep my make up in place, I will be using a Foundation Primer by Laura Mercier. I won't be taking a bronzer or powder with me as I am on the hunt for a new one - I will definitely keep an eye out for make up products in Rome.

Eyebrow pencils, mascaras, concealers, lip pencils and lipsticks are also essentials in my make up routine. I like to keep my make up basic when I am travelling, I think I am more about looking after my skin. I love to pamper my hair and skin before and during my holidays.

If you guys have any tips or recommendations on what to do and see in Rome, feel free to leave me a comment! Which are the best places for shopping? I would love to add some new products to my make up collection!
