My Travel Makeup Bag - Caribbean Edition

So I just came back from my two week vacation. I went to the Dominican Republic to visit my parents - we moved there 10 years ago because my dad got a job there, and 5 years ago I came back to Chile to study and hadn't been back since. 

Now, even though I went in the middle of "winter" it was still horrendously hot, so that's what I kept in mind as chose what to bring with me to the trip.

What I brought with me:

-LancĂ´me Quad
-MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20
-L'Oreal Mega Volume Collagene Waterproof Mascara
-ELF Eyelid Primer
-Essence Eyebrow Designer in 02 Brown
-Esika Kohl Eyeliner in Turquesa Vital
-Arens Blush

-Cyzone Clear Gel
-Esika Colorfix Maxtime Lipstick in Fuscia Express
-Lip Out Loud Super Shiny Gloss in 04 BFF
-Avon ColorTrend Lip Crayon in Rojo Sexy
-Oriflame Lipgloss in Feel the Love

-Four brushes: one eyeshadow brush, another one for concealer, one for bronzer and one for blush.
-Eyelash curler
-Pencil sharpener

What I wish I'd brought:

- Some powder. My Rimmel translucent powder is too flimsy and that I don't think it would've survived the trip.
- A perfume,which I didn't pack because I thought my luggage was going to be over the weight limit.
- Less lip colours. I barely wore anything on my lips other than my lip balm, so those were a waste of space.

Overall, I was please with the majority of the stuff that I took, except for a few items. 
Are you going on holiday sometime soon? Where?
