The Make-Up I Actually Wore on Holiday

Probably like every other beauty obsessed girl out there, when I went on holiday I packed a full makeup bag of al the bright coloured lipsticks, a couple of different highlighters, crazy eyeshadow colours – you name it, I probably packed it.

But when it actually comes down to doing your makeup whilst on holiday- we go super minimal.

I went to Koh Samui in Thailand on holiday, and omg I had not felt humidity like it, so minimal makeup in the hot evenings were a must.

So without me babbling on any further, here is what I actually wore.

Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream

I still don’t feel 100% comfortable with my skin all bare, so I had to use something as a base. I decided to try this Body Shop all-in-one BB cream for the first try. I love BB creams whilst on holiday as they are so light and airy on your skin, and don’t clog your pores up. This is like magic, the colour of the products comes out white and as you blend it into your skin, it adapts to your very won skin tone. Amazing right? It also hydrates your skin for 24 hours (which is perfect for humid Thailand!) and illuminates and even old your skin tone. Magic in a bottle!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick

Highlight. I took numerous different products with me, but for this holiday I kept grabbing my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in the shade Pink Quartz. I love this little beauty. This product gives you the perfect glow and bronze all in one swipe of the brush. I wore this every single evening on holiday, as my aim is to be super glowy, and this baby does exactly that. With the different shades in one brick, you get the pink tones, icy tones, and bronze tones all in one. Amazing!

Kylie Cosmetics Metal Gloss

Again, I took million and one different lip products, from mattes to glosses to lip balms. But I actually went for one lip products the whole holiday which was from Kylie Cosmetics. It’s one of her Metal Glosses in the shade Heir. I have loved this product for so long now, it’s like a gold but has a metal effect which kind of looks like a shimmer/foil effect? It is in a golden champagne colour, so it’s perfect for evening wear. I just feel this product matched the slowly look I was going for in the evenings.

Zoeva Rose Golden Palette

My Zoeva eyeshadow palette was the only palette I decided to take with me, this palette has the most perfect shades for a holiday. Most of the shades are shimmery but there are golden tones, rose gold tones, and also darker shades too. It’s just gorgeous. Most nights I just used one shimmer colour all over my lid, but the shades changed each night. The colours are perfect to help you have that super glowy, highlighted look. This is by far one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes ever and I really recommend it!

I would normally use my Mac waterproof mascara swell, but on this occasion to stop all possibility of having major panda eyes in the heat, I went and got eyelash extensions. These were really natural and didn’t look like fake lashes at all, it just meant I didn’t need to top up with mascara, which was lush!

So there you have it, that’s the makeup that I actually wore on my holiday. Why can’t I have a holiday face all the time?! *holiday blues*

Love always, G x
