Hey! So I’ve just got back from my nightmare holiday (there will be a blogpost going up about it, but I feel like I need hours to sit down and write it!). While I was away I got into a really good routine with my make up and pretty much stuck to the same products everyday as I wanted a really glowy bronzed look. So here is what I used and what I came up with…
To prime my skin I used Benefit Porefessional which I am really loving at the moment! For my foundation I used Mac Studio Fix Fluid which is absolutly perfect for hot climates and if you want a long lasting base. But as I was tanning I needed to darken my foundation daily so it matched, in order to do this I used the foundation drops from The Body Shop. These were perfect for adding a little extra colour each day and it was really easy to add the right amount.
Although my base was getting darker I decided I would keep my under eye concealer really bright so I used the lightest shade of the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer. This was super hydrating and didn’t dry out my under eye area. I’ve actually forgotten to add the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in the photo, but I used that everyday to set everything in place.
To add some colour and definition into my face I used Benefit Hoola Bronzer to bronze on my forehead and cheek bones and under my jaw. I then used Benefit Galifornia for blusher, this was the perfect shade for the summer as it’s a really pretty coral shade (and it smells amazing!).
And lastly to add that extra glow, I used a new highlighter from Tanya Burr Cosmetics in the shade Warm Bronze. I really hesitant at first because I didn’t think I would ever be able to wear it, but with a tan it looked amazing!
I took two eye shadows with me but pretty much ended up only using Burning Embers from MUA Cosmetics. This had the perfect warm shades for a summers evening, and I could create a different look every night if I wanted.
On my lashes I used the Loreal False Lash Superstar which is a double ended mascara perfect for building up bold long defined lashes.
And finally on my brows I have been loving this powder from Freedom, I have been mixing the light and dark shade and this gives a much more natural effect than a pomade. And then to set my brows I used Loreal Brow Plumper in blonde.
Ofcourse I applied a lipstick every night, but it was a different one every night as I took enough for one per day. Although I’m heartbroken as on the last night I lost Candy K somewhere around the hotel!
So here are a few selfies from the week! (Excuse the wet hair & flower crown)
Let me know what your go to make up products are on holiday.
