The Overnight Beauty Edit

When it comes to packing I am honestly the worst because I always over pack and then don't end up using everything I bring with me. Also I am that person that will pack the night before and then start throwing in extra unnecessary items at the last minuet in a panic because I think I haven't brought enough with the me. Usually these last minuets items don't get used anyway. Last weekend I went away with my family to visit friends in London and Birmingham. I decided that I was going to set myself a challenge and only bring one beauty bag with me. I was actually really surprised at how little I needed to bring and I actually use everything I brought with me (apart from the eyeliner because I just wasn't feeling eyeliner on Sunday morning!). 

To take my makeup off in the evening I brought a travel size of the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and then used the Liz Earle Instant Boost Toner, again in a miniature size. For moisturiser I had a travel size of the Nivea Refreshing Soft Moisturising Cream, which is one of my favourite moisturisers. In the morning I used the same products for my morning skincare and then had a shower using the Soap and Glory Clean On Me shower gel. 

My makeup was very simple and I brought the minimal products with me, Foundation was essential and I opted for the Rimmel Match Perfection because I have been using it practically everyday. It offers a good coverage but looks really natural and light on the skin. I don't go anywhere without my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer as it is just amazing at covering anything. To set my base I used the Jemma Kidd Bio-Mineral Perfecting Powder, I love this for travelling because the packaging is so sturdy and I don't have to worry about the powder smashing in my makeup bag. Everyday I wear blush because it makes me looks more radiant and awake; Sleek's Rose Gold blush is one of my all time favourites and because it is so slim and compact it always comes with me in my makeup bag. I didn't bother bringing any eye shadows but I did opt for the Maybelline Master Precise Liner. However I just wasn't feeling the liquid liner look when I was doing my makeup on Sunday morning so I just stuck to my trusty Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara. I wanted to bring a lip product that go with my outfit for both Saturday and Sunday. Topshop Lipstick in Jewel is a pH lipstick and the colour adapts according the pH of you lips. As a result the colour on my lips is a really natural and muted bright pink. 

I also bought with me a few other beauty related bits including my Sure Lasting Protection Antiperspirant which is an essential. Along with one of my Next Love Limited Edition Perfume, I love this because the bottle is small so great for in a makeup bag and also the fragrance is very floral and perfect for any occasion. 

What are your overnight beauty essentials?
