Packing make-up for holiday!

I’m leaving for France early tomorow morning and have spent the past few days packing and getting ready.  Its really sad, but one thing I really enjoy doing is packing make-up!  I love going through all my bits and sorting out what I will use and re-discovering products that I love. 

I’m going away for two weeks and have photographed every product I’m taking to show you all.  I’m very aware that I’m probably definitely over packing but I can’t help it!  I’d rather take too much than too less!

This is the make-up bag I’m taking it in -


I got it a few years ago on EBay for a few pennies and I adore it.  Its really roomy and spacious, and is padded so hopefully my bits won’t get damaged!  I have a smaller MAC make-up bag which I keep on me with all the bits I use regularly in for quick make-up top-ups/refreshments whilst I’m travelling!

Do you think its too much to take away for two weeks? Do let me know!  I did try to narrow it down but I couldn’t anymore!  How much did you all take away on holiday this year?
