My holiday hair and makeup picks!




I'm off on holiday to Majorca tomorrow for some much needed sun in the bones and R&R with my lovely Hubby! Today I want to share the hair, body and makeup products that I'm bringing. I'm not one of those people who doesn't wear makeup on holiday - during the day, I don't wear any but I love to take my time getting ready in the evening. I think I've done well not to over pack but maybe I'm delusional - you let me know!

To prime I am bringing Clarins SOS Bronzing Primer, which I raved about here. On evenings where I choose to go makeup-free, this will be the perfect base but it will also pair beautifully with Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation. This is long-lasting with medium coverage and a natural matte finish so it will be ideal for the humid evenings. Also from Too Faced is Born This Way Concealer, which I love because I can use it both under my eyes and on areas of redness. It's lightweight and gives medium coverage, which is perfect for me and a little goes a long way with it. For blush, I couldn't decide on just one so I'm bringing this gorgeous Hourglass trio. I adore the formula of Hourglass blushes because they are super finely milled, easy to blend in and they give a very 'lit from within'look to the skin. To bronze, I will be using Clarins Blush & Bronzer and to highlight, I am bringing Cover FX Custom Engancer Drops in Moonlight. If I feel the need to set my base, I'll use Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder and Kat Von D Lock It Makeup Setting Spray - it would be impossible for makeup to budge when using this spray!

For my brows, I am bringing theBalm Furrowcious brow pencil and Benefit Ready, Set, Brow Clear Brow Gel. To prime my eyes, I will be using my trusty Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base because it is the only primer that really works on my eyes! For a quick and easy eye, I have two options: Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma or Lime Crime Diamond Dew in Rose Goals. If I feel like spending more time creating an eye look, I am bringing Stila Eyes Are The Window Soul palette because I love the shade selection and range of finishes it has. You will notice that there is no mascara or eye liner but that's because I've had eyelash extensions done so I don't need to use either. I've had them done once before and didn't lose any of my own lashes so don't let horror stories put you off! I'm glad I won't need to worry about any smudging now that I've had these done!

For lips, I have one coral lipstick and one nude - both are from YSL. I'm also bringing Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in the shade Dainty as it's my perfect pinky-nude. I'm bringing the nude Catrice lip liner that I raved about in this post (don't forget to enter my giveaway!). For evenings when I don't want to apply any colour, I'll use Bali Body Coconut Lip Balm, which has SPF 15 so I will also use it during the day. This is intensely hydrating and gives the lips a nice sheen!

A few extra products are Ouai Anti-Frizz Hair Sheets to keep my hair less Monica from Friends style, a limited edition compact Tangle Teezer (how cute is the pineapple and palm tree print?) and DHC Rich Eye Zone Masks to hydrate and de-puff my under eye area as I sometimes find that air conditioning can make them puffy. Finally, following a day of sunbathing (with plenty of SPF), I will be nourishing my body with one of two oils - either Bali Body Natural Tanning Oil (used to hydrate, not tan!) or to add some shimmer, I'll use Sol De Janeiro Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil, which adds some glow and smells amazing!

Are you a minimal makeup packer or a 'bring everything but the kitchen sink' type? Also, if you are going on holiday this year, I would love to hear where you're going?

There won't be any posts from me next week as I just want to switch off and enjoy the break, but I'll be back posting on the 25th!
