Whats in my makeup bag: weekend at the beach

Last week I went for a few days to the beach and as I was only going to be there for about three full days, I decided to minimize my makeup carry on as much as possible, this was the result.
For brushes I took my Models Own travel makeup brush set, perfect since it's compact and has every brush you could need in just a few days away.

I decided to take my FashionistA palette, since I can fit blushers and bronzers as well as eyeshadows, which no only makes your makeup bag less bulky but also makes the deciding on what to put on a lot easier.
I knew I wasn't going to be wearing much eyeshadow during the day, with the heat and the sun and all, so my choice of colors was only for night time. 

I chose to take my L'oreal gel liner instead of my MAC one because this is less creamy which makes it the better option for summer time.
For lashes I took my Revlon Lash Potion mascara, I've been obsessed with this one lately, I love it for sure. 

For skin I chose the Maybelline Fit me anti-shine stick, this stick foundation is not just great for traveling, but also great for summer time, since you apply it with your fingers, you don't need a brush and "supossedly" you don't even need to powder it (I do, because I like a real matte finish and my skin is extra oily). 
For powder I took my Mattify Me by Look Beauty, this has been my favourite powder of the year, and what makes it great for travel is the fact that: 
1) It's translucent, so if you get a tan, you can still match it with your skin
2) it has a great mirror, which makes it great for doing your makeup anywhere
3) it's super steardy, seriouslly, I once droped it on the street and not only it didn't smash, it didn't even broke a bit, nothing!
For concealer I took my Dark circle eraser my Maybelline, this his my favourite ever concelaer, so I just picked up a darker shade (to go better with my itty bitty tan) and popped it on my makeup bag. 

For lips I chose the L'oreal lip caresse in Princess (a lovely coraly orange)
Extreme's AlldayMatte liquid lipstick in Red (perfect for going out since it will never leave your lips, no matter what)
Maybelline's Popsicle in Pink Lollipop (a pink sheer wash of colour, perfect for summer day time)
