How about taking nothing more than shampoo, conditioner and soap?
Everything else is excess baggage.

Last year I booked a last minute trip to Turkey to visit my brother who works there. The 20 kg check in was full of pressies for nieces and nephews so all I could pack for a week was my 10 kg hand luggage. I knew I would be out for a night on my birthday, the rest was all sightseeing and swimming. I got it down to...
Tinted moisturiser with spf 15
tinted lip balm with spf 15
2 eyeliners green/blue
1 eyeshadow duo for the night out
travel size conditioner (I conditioner only wash my hair and had heard you can use conditioner also as a shower gel which I did)
Miracle balm in tiny travel tub
travel size deodorant
defuzz mits (to top up epilation job if needed)
I was pleasantly suprised with how easy I got on, how nice it was to travel so light and unfussy, and suprisingly people remarked at the holiday snaps how young I looked (and I don't get that comment very often!)

I think your new list is just fine - enough of everything to make sure you don't feel naked on the face, but is a nice compact little set.
Have a lovely weekend away

Bare minimum i'd take...
-Lush Godiva solid shampoo bar. This is shampoo/conditioner in one. I also use it as a shower soap and it won't leak out everywhere.
- face wipes to take off make-up.
- A good moisturising balm like Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream or Liz Earl Superbalm. This can be used as moisturiser/handcream/lipbalm/deep hair moisturiser at night.
- Mascara (a mini one)
- something like Nars the Multiple that can be used as eyeshadow/lips/cheeks etc.
- foundation. I like Lily Lolo mineral powder that I can use dry during the day (also has SPF) and damp for more coverage at night.
-Toothbrush/toothpaste (a mini travel type)
(maybe)-solid perfume (takes up less space, its lighter and less likely to break/leak)
I would have my eyebrows threaded before I go then no need for tweezers, legs waxed or epilated (no razor).
However in reality I end up taking most of Boots!

Well, you lot have shown me right up! I went away this weekend and bought with me :
Brown Pencil (used as eyeliner and brow)
I'm going on holiday this week and I probably wont take much more..I think the key is defiantly dual purpose stuff.

Bare minimum for me would be:
Translucent powder + brush
Bronzer + brush (foundation if I didn't have a tan )
Blusher + brush
Full size shower gel (hate travel size, scared of running out!)
Shampoo/conditioner (probabpy full size unless I can be bothered to decant)
HairdryerTweezers (a stray hair can ruin a weekend, it's so disracting)
nail scissors & nail file (You can bet your bottom dollar if you don't have them you will break a nail
Nail polish remover & cotton wool (only if I've painted my nails before I go)
Think that's all.
