What's In My Makeup Bag | Australia Holiday


When you are away for so long, it's all about swapping around to look different each day. I was always swapping around my shorts, with different tops. I shared how I styled my outfits in Australia, which you can see by clicking the link (click here). That's exactly what I was doing, with my lipsticks and eye makeup.  

I thought it would be fun to show you, what makeup I brought with me. I did a similar post a while back (what's in my handbag), when I headed to New York. The makeup bag is from Matalan, but I bought it last year.

24 Outfits

 I have a list of ideas of things to write about from Australia, so be prepared for a series of Australian - ness. I didn't have enough shorts to last me 3 weeks in Australia, never mind underwear haha. So I bought some new clothes for going on holiday, which you can see what I bought by clicking the link (click here).

Am going to share the outfits, I wore over the 3 week in Australia. (It was actually 3 and a half weeks, if you include the travel time). I thought the Sunday top was funny and perfect to wear for traveling, as I left Scotland on Sunday night and arrived in Australia on Tuesday. I mostly wore my Nike trainers, as they are quicker to walk in. On the rare occasions I wore sandals or flip flops, so there's no point saying what was on my feet.

Glossier Shopping Haul


As I stated previously I was saving to go to Australia and ended up going on a huge spending spree buying new clothes, I ended up buying the Glossier products I've been holding of buying for ages. I have been wanting to try Glossier lid star since it came out and the solid perfume, but I've been telling myself I don't need it. Then I spotted Glossier have a sun cream, so I thought if am going to buy the sun cream I might as well buy everything else I want. 

It's my birthday here in Australia, I guess I can call it my birthday present from me.

Products : 

Solid Glossier You perfume 
Lidstar : Fawn | Cub 
Invisible shield  

*Link contains a refer link which pays me a small amount when you shop.

Here is inside my bag I took to New York :

Passport
Camera 
Spare phone charger 
2 spare camera batteries

Packing Light | New York


One of the most stressful things of going away is packing. Am I the only person that has to double, triple and keep checking I have all plugs and chargers etc ?. It's like my mind is saying no, go and check again haha.   

Am heading to New York City, famous for shopping. I try my best to travel light as possible, to have room for shopping. My trick is to put my empty hand luggage suitcase, inside my large suitcase.


The fun part of going away is picking up a few new things for your holiday. So here's my wee holiday haul : 

H&M
Glitter dress :  £17.99
Spotted blouse : £17.99
Schuh
Toms : £14.99
River Island  
90's love top : £16
Tesco 
Black leggings : £6
Matalan 
Note book : £4
Makeup bag : £6
Purse : £4


I pack different colour leggings and light tops. Leggings are light and don't take up too much room in the suitcase. I've also packed a couple evening outfits to head out at night.       

When it comes to packing for New York, I always say think smart shoes for going in posh shops in New York. The truth is when you are there, New Yorkers don't really care. I always walk around Manhattan with Tom shoes and my feet are killing me. This time am taking a pair of trainers.

First day outfit :
Victoria's Secret grey top
Jean leggings
Bomber jacket
Nike trainers
