Beauty Break!

Ah summer! Whether you're taking a few days at home, jetting off to sunnier climes, visiting family or 'avin it large with friends, we all know one things for sure - a trip out of town means a trip away from the make up stash (Aw man! We hate making decisions!).

Our break this year is the Edinburgh Festival. A full on working holiday, our packing needs to take on several levels to ensure we're covered for all possibilities (flyering, performing, interviews, feeling so exhausted we want to cry). So asides from the all important sun screens, shampoos and straighteners, which other goodies managed to make the "final cut"...

- Bobbi Brown Long Wear Creme Shadow in Sandy Gold
- Armani Face Fabric Radiance Foundation (for night)
- Nars Larger Than Life Mascara (for night)
- Clinique Lash Power Mascara (for day)
- Lipstick Queen Medieval
- Armani Face Fabric Blush (sample size)
- Max Factor Eye Shadow
- Bobbi Brown Corrector
- Lancome Juicy Tube (sample size)

- Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF20
- Bobbi Brown Highlighter Pen in Rose
- MAC Blush in Peaches
- Vaseline
- Eyelash Curlers

In all honesty, we kind of like being limited in our choices. Not only do we find that a restricted group of products results in us wearing less slap, it also encourages us to try new looks and use more of items we often forget about back home.

When it comes to fuzz free skin, we make sure to always epilate before we go ( who wants to shave when there is relaxation to be had?) Our beloved machine of 5 years has recently given up on us and this summer we're incredibly keen to get our hands on one of the new Philips Satin Perfect. (You can learn more about Philips and their satin perfect epilators here.)

Here's what the brand itself has to say about it's sleek, hair removing marvel:

The new Philips Satin Perfect has an extra-wide head which enables it to removes more hair in one stroke, giving you long-lasting smoothness, faster. Its high performance discs are made of textured ceramic material, which gently grip and remove even finest hairs.

If you haven't tried using an epilator before we really couldn't recommend them enough - just make sure to exfoliate!

So now all that's left to do is pack, reach our destination, and enjoy our very own Beauty Break. What stuff do you swear by for your holiday look?

I love the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Chanel Lip Balm, and Chanel Glossimers. They have never failed me and are always staples on the go or for special occasions.

i'm really intrigued by this epilating business since shaving is always such a pain (literally and figuratively).

how long do you find your legs (or whichever body part) stay smooth for after epilating?

@ Krisite - those sound awesome! We've never tried a Chanel Glossimer before: they're very high on our lust list!

@ Dani - The longest my legs have gone without needing to epilate is around 7 weeks. Yet on average I'd say I normally need to do it every 5.
