Holiday Makeup...

Hi guys! Today I thought I would blog about those essential makeup items that are perfect to bring with you on your summer holidays.

So your holiday is all booked, your suitcase is packed full of bikinis and your passport is at the ready now you just have to decide what you need to put in your makeup bag.

If you are heading to an exotic destination then first you have to sit through a long-haul flight. Skin can become really dehydrated so to keep it looking fresh I would recommend the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream.  This is a beauty must have, it restores, calms and soothes dry skin. Pop this on top of your makeup across the cheekbones and on the eyelids for a instant healthy glow. When you step off that plane no one will believe you have just sat through an 11+ hour flight!

This 50ml tube is the perfect size for all handbags
and the right size to carry with you on the plane.


One of the reasons we love to go on holiday is to bathe in the hot sun and we all love a natural looking tan. To accentuate your glow sweep this bronzer across the cheeks, shoulders and collar bone.

For the summer it's great to play around with some really bright colours and I am loving these new ColorBurst Lip Butters from REVLON. I want to get my lips on all of them but the two I love at the moment are Raspberry Tart & Strawberry Shortcake.

Available from Boots at £7.99 each

If you like to wear a bit of mascara during the day and then want to pump up the volume in the evenings this is the mascara for you. The Volumizer Mascara from Bourjois has a transformable brush so all you need to do is choose the volume that best suits your style. Use Step One to perfectly define the eyelashes or if you want to focus on the lips. Use Step Two for dramatic lashes with up to 11x more volume, perfect for creating show-stopping eyes.
