My holiday make up

Summer is the time to be a bit lighter with your make up anyway, but when you’re visiting a hot country then the last thing you want basically is to put make up on your face. Some people do it. I can’t stand feeling like the sun is burning all the makeup I have on my face into my skin. I’m pretty sure it is not very healthy either. However there still a little bit of make up that you can do that will make you feel more put together and pretty on your holidays!

So this is the make up I wear during the day. For the evening especially if I go out I do wear a bit of make up but not too much. Bronzer, highlighter, eyeliner and of course some eyeshadows. The one I definitely gonna take on holiday is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics my paradise eye palette. With eyeliner make sure you use a waterproof one just in case you get hot and start sweating. 😉

Brows

The one thing I cannot leave anywhere without is filling in my eyebrows. They make me feel put together and my face just looks better when my brows are done even if I have no make up on. The best thing would be to get it tinted before you go on holiday so you don’t have to bother with it, but if you prefer to do it on your own then just go for it. I’d definitely suggest using a gel product to set your brows after you filled them in to make sure they stay put all day and won’t be running down your face.

Concealer

Now I know I said I can’t stand make up burning into your face, but another thing I can’t stand is dark cirlces under my eyes. So I use the tiniest amount of concealer to try and hide them. I’m one of those persons that just has dark undereyes, no matter how much I sleep or the eye creams I use they’re still gonna be a bit dark. Of course if your undereyes are not dark, you can just totally miss this step.

Mascara

Back in my homecountry it is above 30 degrees pretty much all summer, so the only make up item I used to wear was mascara. This is the perfect way to get a no make up make up look. I like to have really bold lashes anyway so when on holiday and that’s the only thing I put on my eyes I don’t hold back, haha. One tip though, use a waterproof eyeliner on the tightline to make your lashes appear fuller.

Lips

Holidays to me scream bright vivid lips. It’s the one time where you can get away with using the brigthest and boldest colour. All the bright pink colours are made for holidays.

So this is all the make up I use on holidays. I only put suncream on my face after my skincare routine and I feel like my skin is always grateful for its little make up free holiday too!

What make up do you like to wear on your holidays? xx

Current Beauty Obssesions

I haven’t been doing monthly faves for a while so I decided to pick all my fave beauty products at the moment and share them with you!

Soap and Glory shower and body lotion products

First of all I’d like to write about some of the new shower and body products that I have been loving in the past month.  I have never tried any Soap and Glory products before since living here in the UK for three years but I have heard good things about them so I decided to give them a try and I was not disappointed at all. Both the Orangegasm and the Clean On Me shower gels are really good. I use the Orangegasm when I feel I need to be energized for the day. With the Clean on me shower gel I like the fact that it has built in  body lotion as well and it really leaves my skin feel soft and smooth after the shower.

The other two discoveries are actually almost the same product just in different forms. One is the Daily Smooth body butter and the other one is The Smoothie deep moisturizing milk. Both have the same scents to them but obviously the butter has a thicker texture than the milk. Even though I find the milk to be thicker that just a normal body lotion. I find them to do a great job at moisturizing my body all day and I’ve just been really enjoying using them in these past months.

Burberry Weekend perfume

I have had my eyes on this perfume for more then a year now and now I finally decided to treat myself and get it. I’m not really good at describing scents really so I’m just gonna put the information here that I fund on the Burberry website so you can get an idea what it smells like. I would highly recommend though to pop into boots and give it a little sniff if you can.

A sheer fragrance with top notes of tangerine, tree sap and reseda plant. Delicate floral heart notes of wild rose, peach blossom, iris and hyacinth, invigorated by a subtle splash of nectarine. The low notes of cedar wood and sandalwood add depth for a relaxed and fresh scent

YSL The Shock mascara

This is one of my newly found mascaras and I’m in love with it. It gives you sooo much volume and just basically feels like it doubles the sizes of your lashes. It has an hour shape kind of wand with medium bristles. It does smell pretty nice for a mascara too, almost like a hand cream. It can easily clamp up though so be careful not to apply too many coats. But overall it is a really good high end mascara and I feel like it’s definitely worth the money.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

After using creamy foundations for years I wanted to try out a bit more watery consistency of a foundation. I rarely try new foundations as I like to stick with the ones I know I like and work great for my skin, but I’m lucky I did find try out this one. It comes in a lot of shades so it’s guaranteed that you’ll find a match for your skin colour. I am shade 102. I really like the feel of it on the skin, it is thinner on the skin and you can’t feel it on the skin either which is what I prefer with foundations. It lasts good on my all day does not cake up, overall it is a good drugstore foundation.

L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara blue and black

As I said I don’t really like to change up my foundation, however I’m always on the lookout for new mascaras and I really like trying out new ones. I have been really unlucky finding not so great mascaras in the past so I was sooo happy with this one as it did it’s job and gave me fab lashes. It is a more drier formula so probably easier to apply. It gives you really curly and lifted lashes. Doesn’t really clamp up thanks to its dry formula. A really good and affordable drugstore mascara and the best thing abut is that it comes in colours too. So naturally I had to purchase a blue mascara as well. They also sell purple and turquoise coloured ones as well. Can’t wait to try those ones out too.

Max Factor matte lipstick

With my mascara collection growing I don’t particularly mind if my lipstick collection grows with it too. They are my two fave make up items. I have been loving matte lippies as they are really on trend now , and every brand is releasing their own matte lipstick or liquid matte lipsticks lip paint, name it, a brand has already come up with it. I usually prefer a liquid form that dries down but I saw these lipstick in a Youtube video and I just had to get one of them when I was in Superdrug. I chose the shade Rose which is this really lovely pink shade that I also used in my spring summer make up look tutorial as well. It is a matte lipstick but it is not drying on the lips and actually it stays on for quite a while. I will definitely be purchasing more shades of this lipstick as it is slowly becoming my fave lipstick and the one I reach for the most.

I hope you liked reading this blog post! What are your current beauty obsessions?

Hope you’re having a lovely day/night! xx
