Holiday Makeup Look

Hey Guys! So in my last blog post I showed you my holiday makeup essentials which was basically all the makeup items I'm going to be taking away with me. To follow on from that, I thought I would show you my go to makeup look using those items because this is probably the look I'll wear most nights whilst I'm on holiday. Like I said in my previous post, wearing makeup whilst on holiday is totally a personal preference but I love to just wear it of a night to feel more dressed up and ready I suppose.

Instead of saying every product again, I'll link my previous post here so you can check out what products I've used!
Obviously on holiday you want to go for a natural or dewy skin look so I kept the skin looking fresh by not powdering as much as using highlighting products to give a glowing look. I also chose to contour and then use a warm tone blush to give a sun kissed look because on holiday I tend to burn instead of tanning so I have to fake it! For eyes I kept them really simple and just ran a matte brown under them so I didn't have to use any eye liner which may have smudged in the heat and then I just topped it off with a lot of mascara because false lashes and heat are't the greatest match and I think they would have been too much for this look! Then to finish I decided to go for a coral lip to add some colour and also because I think coral really compliments tanned skin so it's a great holiday colour! Oh and finally I finished off with a few spritz of setting spray to keep my makeup on all day because you don't want your eyebrows down by your cheek!
From bare
To finished

Let me know what you think of the look and if you would wear it? If you take any inspiration from it then be sure to tweet me a photo or tag me in it on instagram so I can have a look, my links are below! Also, if you have any other blog posts you would like me to do that are holidy related, or not, then be sure to let me know and I'l try and get them up. If any of you are going on holiday soon then enjoy and don't be getting too brown haha! But if your not going away I hope you also have a lovely summer, or winter, or whichever season it is where you are.
Thankyou for reading..

Holiday Makeup Essentials

Hey Guys! I feel like it has been soo long since I last done a blog post but I decided to take time away from blogging whilst I done my exams so I could focus on them. Sorry it's been so long but I'm back now and I thought, considering I go on holiday soon, I would do my holiday makeup essentials! Obviously, when you go away not everyone likes to wear makeup but I still like to of an evening so I thought I would show use what I have in my makeup bag!
 
 

 
So of course, my absolute essential is setting spray! In the heat of a beaming sun, the staying power of makeup reduces dramatically so I use this avon setting spay to keep my makeup in place and prevent walking around with a dripping face. I've also chose to take a primer so extra staying power, I have the lumi magique one from loreal which I love because it adds a glow to the face. Then I've got foundation and concealer, I've just chose a dewy one because I like the fresh face look in summer but I've also got powder to set my face because otherwise I'd just end up a shiny mess! For cheeks I've packed two bronzers, one to contour and one to bronze and also Mac's warm soul blush to add more of a bronzed glow to the cheeks. I also packed Mac's soft and gentle because I love a shimmery cheek, it just adds to the glowing and dewy look. Then I've got my trust brow stuff which I couldn't go without, Mac's brun and loreal brow plumper.. A great combination! Finally we have eyes a lips. I don't really wear much eyeshadow so I've packed my Naked basics palette and a mascara just to have a simple look if I want to. Then for lips I've got a few options. I like to go for either a coral, a nude or a berry pink so I have one of each.. I'll decide which I use when I'm there.
And that's everything! It may seem a little much for some but I like to take a variety incase I want a certain look one night. I feel like it's better to have too much than too little so I just pile it all in! Although I don't know if it will all fit in my makeup bag so I could be taking a bigger one haha! Anyway, I was thinking of doing a makeup look using these products to show you my basic holiday makeup look so let me know if that's something you'd want to see! Or if there is any other holiday posts you would like me to do.
Thankyou for reading..
