As we were only going for four days I took a tiny suitcase with me. And that meant a tiny soap bag, which meant not much make up at all! It was actually kind of a struggle, but an interesting challenge. I normally take loads of stuff with me on holiday and then never use even half of it. So I tried really hard to think about what I would actually need and use.
I took my Bobbi Brown gel liner, and the Bobbi Brown Bronze Tortoiseshell pallet. And the only other eye shadow I took was the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze. I LOVE this. I do love a good bronze eyeshadow. Mascara wise I took the No. 7 Lash Adapt (favourite ever? Probably), Lancome Hypnose and the Clinique bottom lash.
I knew I wanted to wear bright lips in Paris (that feels very Parisian to me, am I the only one?) so I took both my YSL Glossy stains, in a fuchsia pink and bright red. I also took a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain which I am in love with.
I also took my customised Laura Mercier pallet with me, which has in two blushes, three matte eyeshadows which I used for my eyebrows as well as shadows, and a cake liner.
Overall I'm pretty happy with what I took. I used almost everything at least once. But I did splurge on a few things which will be featured in an upcoming post.
