What's In My Travel Make-Up Bag? | In-Flight Essentials Tips & Tricks!

Cosmetic Bags - NEXT
With the October half-term and my birthday lurking just around the corner I thought it was about time I mentioned that I'm actually going on holiday at the end of this week! You know you have that mental bucket-list of places you absolutely have to visit in the world? Well mine consists of mainly New York and Dubai. You'll be thrilled to know that the blog is going to get a lot more exciting as I'm checking off one of those places and heading off to Dubai for 6 days this Friday!

A Dream Closet...

We all dream of having a lifestyle of luxury and a closet full of designer labels, but when you're still in full-time education, just on the cusp of turning 16, and well... not Kendall Jenner, it can be a little difficult to attain these materialistic items. Despite this saddening fact, who's to say a girl can't dream? Now if I was to take a look into my future wardrobe I would hope that I had it would contain so much Chanel even Karl Lagerfeld would be raising a eyebrow. But lets get serious, it isn't going to happen and it probably never will. Interestingly, that's why I created this post! So I can look back in years to come and see if any of my dreams actually came true. Therefore, I thought it would be quite nice to share with you 5 items from my 'never going to happen but I'll still dream anyway' closet wish list!

And why not turn it into a tag? I challenge EleanorEstelleKatherine and every single one of you lovely readers to do this tag. Go on, show us what would be on your Bond Street hit-list!

MAC Lipstick Collection!

It's blatantly obvious by the extent of my collection that I'm still a Mac lipstick newbie despite the fact I dream daily of all the colours I desire to own. If you're looking for a great all-round brand that are guaranteed to have your perfect colour, finish and price then Mac is probably your best bet. The only problem is I can never actually get to the lipstick stand because there is always ten thousand other lipstick enthusiasts, all eager to get their hands on that perfect hue. 

Left: Costa Chic | Right: Girl About Town
Surprise Surprise, pretty much all the shades I have a quite similar to each other in the sense they all have a tint of pink to them. I'm not very experimental when it comes to lipsticks and I like to stick to my comfort zone. That being said Girl About Town is quite a bold, out there shade when built up and can make a statement without being overpowering. Sometimes dark lips are hard to wear and incorporate for summer months, however Girl About Town is great as it's definitely not just a seasonal shade! Costa Chic is a pretty coral colour with a slight shimmer to it which gives a really nice effect. With the perfect formula, it looks great with many different makeup looks and although it is more of a summer shade, can be worn throughout the year!

Left: Plink! | Right: Cremecup
Just looking at this photo makes me laugh; I'm not sure if it's my camera or the lighting but I wouldn't blame you for mistaking that these are the same colour. In actual fact they are both two very different shades with very different but benefiting qualities. Plink! is a much more shimmery shade that definitely wouldn't require a lipgloss over the top. It's a stunning colour that isn't too dissimilar from my natural lip colour, so it adds a nice natural effect and looks great with intense eye makeup! With Cremecup I honestly do not know where to begin. As seen in the photo, this lipstick has seen better days. It really is my go-to lip colour because it goes with literally every single makeup look possible and I can apply it without even requiring a mirror. Now if that isn't practicality then I don't know what is.

I'm always on the lookout for a new Mac lipstick so if you have any recommendations do let me know! I'm thinking something completely different to what I already have, maybe a nude, maybe a vampy red... Who knows?

Shop Mac HERE.
What's your favourite lipstick? Do you prefer natural colours or intense ones?

Have a great day!
