The American Beauty Wishlist
What is it about American Beauty products that we all love? I think it is the fact that as some of them are so hard to get, it makes us want them so much more.
I was lucky enough to visit America last year and it was my first time to set foot in the mothership we all know as Sephora so you could say I went a little makeup crazy (see the haul here). This year I'm going in armed with my fellow makeup obsessor Lizzy however I'm going in with a much more level head and tighter budget. So here is what I hope to pick up in both Sephora and the drugstore.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect matte eyeshadow palette for a few months now and I think I have finally found 'the one'. This palette has various natural warm toned browns, exactly what I want. I have heard so many amazing things about Two Faced eyeshadows so I am very excited to see what this one is like in person.

A tinted moisturiser is one item that I am lacking in my makeup collection. All of my foundations and base products seem to be very heavy, not ideal for the warmer weather. I have heard many raves about this tinted moisturiser so I thought I'd give it a try!

When I think of Tarte I think of these blushes! I tried Tarte for the first time last year and I was very impressed so I can't wait to look at these blushes. I only have one blush and I really want to branch out and try some more so I thought that these would be perfect. If you have any shade recommendations let me know in the comments below.

As this is a massively hyped up product to be honest I just want to see what all the hype is about! I wasn't a fan of 'They're Real' mascara but I'm hoping this one will be a lot better.

Going by what Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup says about these, they sound bloody great! Even though it is summer you can't beat a berry lip so I decided on the shade 'Vampira' which is described as a 'deep reddish burgundy', a colour that is right up my street.

Hands down my favourite fake eyelashes. As my natural eyelashes are quite short I prefer more natural fake eyelashes so they don't look too drastic and these are perfect for that. 

I have heard both good and bad things about these. Although I have heard they make your teeth sensitive, I have seen people have amazing results so I thought I'd try them out for myself.

So thats pretty much everything that is on my beauty wish list for Florida. If you have any other recommendations of products that I need in my life please leave them below because I probably will go overboard in the end!

What's in my Travel Makeup Bag 2015
Ah this is such a classic post! I have wrote it twice before, when I went to Berlin, Germany in 2013 and before I went to London last year (posts here and here) so today I present you with the third edition of What's in my Travel Makeup Bag!

For foundation I brought my NARS Sheer Glow along with this Rimmel BB Cream. I brought the BB Cream as it is in medium, it allows me to add it to the foundation and darken it up as I want to! On to concealer I brought the MAC Pro Longwear concealer along with the Laura Mercier Colour Corrector. To set it all, I brought the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. 

Nothing new here, I just brought my go- to cheek products. To bronze, contour and highlight I brought the Sleek Contour Kit in Light and for blush I brought the MAC Blush in Peach Twist.

Mascara wise, I have packed the L'Oreal Telescopic a favourite of mine that recently I have not been liking. For eyeliner, the trusty S&G Supercat Liner. To keep my brows in shape, I'm bringing the S&G Brow Archery along with the MAC Brow Set. Even though I probably won't be wearing eyeshadow on the holiday, I had to pack some just in case! I packed my MAC quad featuring All That Glitters and Quarry on top and Coquette and Satin Taupe on the bottom. In the duo I packed Omega and Charcole Brown.

I can't go anywhere without brining a few bold lip options with me. I decided on the  Maybelline Colour Drama in Berry Much, Charlotte Tilbury's Glastonberry and MAC's All Fired Up. 

Looking at all of this makeup, I seem a bit crazy as I can see myself not wearing much makeup at all but I can't help packing it all 'just in case'!
