Five make up products I can't live without on holiday!

By the time you read this I will be nearing the end of my holiday to Santorini (boo!) so I thought I would share with you five make up products I always take on summer holidays with me. Obviously, me being me, I take a lot more than five but there are a few I always take without fail. During the day I don't tend to wear anything on my face other than sun cream (I have a review on the one I've been using this time coming up soon) so these products are things I use to create an evening look.

One foundation I absolutely have to pack is Nars Sheer Glow (I'm shade Mont Blanc) and I have to admit I started to panic about this a little as its been out of stock here in the UK for weeks and weeks and weeks. Luckily it came back in stock last month! I have done a full review on this foundation so check that out if you fancy. I take this on holiday because it has decent staying power and gives a nice glowing base without veering on to the hot, sweaty mess side- which is never ideal is it?!

The pairing of Mac Lady Danger Lipstick and Mac Pro Longwear Lipliner in High Energy is an absolute dream team and holiday essential to me. They create the most vibrant, striking red toned lip and I love how it looks with my fair skin and dark hair. The red has a slight orange undertone to it which makes it even more summer appropriate. These two also stay put well making them a low maintenance red lip, perfect for all the food I'll be eating and cocktails I'll be drinking, whoop!

When I'm wanting to feel that extra bit spesh I love a winged eyeliner and the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner is my all time favourite. When I go away I like to take products I can rely on and this for me in the most reliable eyeliner in my stash. It gives a intense black line and the pen style makes is super easy to apply. I've also found that this lasts a really long time without needing reapplication which is something I need in a liquid eyeliner.

On the whole I'm not a huge false eyelashes kinda gal but I do love the Ardell Demi Wispies so for my hol I treated myself to a new pack of them. These have got to be my favourite lashes everrrr and I'm sure I must have said this once or twice or three times before. Honestly though, they give plenty of fluttery volume and the invisible band makes them super easy to apply.

Are there any products you always have to take on holiday?
