What's in my Bali Makeup Bag


If you're reading this then I'm probably somewhere over Eastern Europe or even Asia on my way Bali. I've been pretty lucky this year as earlier this Summer I popped to Thailand with George. I didn't manage to do a 'What's in my Makeup bag' for that trip so I thought I utilize the opportunity this time around. So here goes...


The Body Shop // All-in-One BB Cream

I talked about this in my 'Humidity/Sweat-Proof Makeup' post that went up whilst I was in Thailand. The thing about Thailand (and Bali, I'm told) is that it's so humid so applying makeup at all is a little bit of a chore. But on holiday you're always going to have those nights where you want to try a little harder. This is perfect for that. It's a super lightweight base so doesn't feel like you've really applied anything. It also alters to the shade of your skin tone too so no matter what colour you go on holiday, this will adapt to always being your perfect shade!

Urban Decay // Naked Flushed Palette

For travelling, I love this palette. Blush, highlight and bronzer all in one. It's compact and comes with a pretty decent mirror too. What more could you want? The highlight is ever so slightly too pink for me when I have a tan but used lightly it works pretty nicely. I might pack my Becca 'Shimmering Skin Perfector' in Opal too. Just for good measure.

Stila // Eyes are the Window - Soul Palette

I always forget I have this but then realise how much I honestly adore it when I pull it out to travel. I'm not one for bold colour normally, but especially on holiday, nudes just pop and look 10x better. This palette has it all too, a good selection of light to dark shades in matte and shimmer.

Barry M // Dazzle Dusts - Aphrodite & Bronze

I talked about these in my 'All Time Favourites' on Saturday and threw them straight in my travel bag when I was finished. I love a good sparkle and Aphrodite is perfect for brightening up the inner corners. Plus what's better than gold eyes, with a tan and white dress on the beach sipping cocktails? Pretty much nothing really.

MAC // Velvet Teddy

I bought this in duty-free on the way to Thailand and loved the way it looked, especially in photo's like this one! But back in the UK, I still love it but not as much as I did on holiday. So this has a space in my makeup bag with the theory in mind that it's the perfect holiday shade. Here's to hoping anyway. If it still looks meh, then I don't know what I'll do!

Elizabeth Arden // Rouge 01

Every summer makeup bag needs a fun, bold red lip. I kind of feel like matte's are great because they stay put and look amazing, but on holiday you just need something a little dewier. Something with a little more glow. And that is this lipstick. It's kind of similar to the Cream Sheen range by MAC, very bright, very easy to apply and very dewy.

In terms of the basics, concealer I'm taking my of the minute favourite, NYX dark circle concealer but it's more as a safety blanket. There if I need it but will probably won't. Soap & Glory 'Archery' pencil for my brows because well, it's just the best when you can't get your hands on the Anastasia 'Brow Wiz'. And probably MAC's 'Fluidline Gel Liner' for my flicks because it's the only thing I've found to survive the humid temperatures!

I'd recommend checking out my Instagram if you're into all that wanderlust madness because with Thailand and now my trip to Bali, things are pretty beautiful over there! And if you haven't, my Bloglovin and Twitter are here too if you fancy staying up to date whilst I'm away.

Love always,
Melissa

    1. The BB Cream is great, perfect for on holiday when you don't want to do a bare face but it's too hot for foundation!
