Our Holiday Makeup Essentials!
We can’t wait to go on our hols and we bet lots of you are feeling the same! While everyone loves a good holiday, a lot of us really hate packing, deciding what to bring can be a stressful process. We all want to look fabulous when on holiday, and getting makeup right in the heat can take some thought, so a bit of extra preparation is required to ensure our make-up achieves the desired beach babe effect. Here’s our list of holiday makeup essentials to give you a hand…
Benefit Sun Beam Highlighter – This highlighter, which looks great on all skin tones, gives you that dreamy sun kissed glow that you want on holiday, it really does fit its description of ‘liquid sunshine in a bottle.’ You can play around to get the desired effect, with a small amount achieving a subtle dewy look and a more generous application giving you full sun goddess vibes. We also recommend getting creative and using on other parts of the body too e.g. collar bones.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer – Bronzer really makes you feel summery, but it can be difficult to master, we have all experienced that caked on mess that ends up looking like our face is just a bit dirty! This bronzer however blends in easily for a natural sun kissed look. Also, the packaging is beautiful, it really feels like a luxury item.
CODE FFL Forget Fake Lashes – When you’re in a hot country the last thing you want is to be dealing with is false lashes. They are sticky, uncomfortable and unlikely to withstand the heat, leaving you looking a hot mess. Code FFL lash primer will give you the wow factor look with none of the fuss. Plus, FFL contains hydrating and conditioning agents to care for lashes and softening agents that prevents cracking and flaking.
CODE VLM Mini Mascara – CODE VLM Mini is the miracle mascara we all long for, but in the travel size that’s ideal to take on holiday. This mascara will give you show stopping lashes that won’t melt off it the heat, and built up throughout the day without clumping or flaking, to take your look from beach to bar. CODE VLM is also super kind to your lashes, with vitamins and waxes to encourage lash growth.
Charlotte Tilsbury Brow Lift Eyebrow Pencil – The reason this brow pencil is perfect to take on holiday is its staying power. The last thing you want is to be wasting valuable sun time fussing over your brows, and the waxing consistency of this pencil gives it maximum staying power. It is self-sharpening too (so one less thing to carry around with you!) and contains a built-in brow bone highlighter. The website also has a great feature where you can see each shade on a range of skin tones to help you pick the right one.
CODE LIP Lip Intense Plumper – Not only is this lip plumper ideal to give you super plump lips on holiday, you can also use it daily for a couple of weeks before you go to really build up an amazing pout. CODE LIP (lip intense plumper) is the natural alternative to fillers, and it moisturizes and conditions your lips, and contains compounds to protect them from sun damage.
Butter London Pimms Nail Polish – This nail polish is the perfect summer shade (that will go great with a tan) and has the perfect summer name to match. The polish has easy application and isn’t streaky – apply two coats for the best effect. It also lasts for a good few days so you won’t need to keep reapplying throughout your holiday.
Enjoy your hols and stay beautiful...
