Evening Holiday make-up!

Seems as I have just been on holiday, I thought it would be a good idea to write a little post on the products I used and why!

When you're in a hot country, it can often feel like your make-up is about to melt off your face! I wanted to use products that were light and gave a natural look.

The products I chose to take on holiday worked perfectly for me. I have combination/normal skin however, I seem to get breakouts quit easily on my lower cheeks. I didn't want heavy make-up as I knew it was going to be hot.


So, face first! The Benefit - The POREfessional (£24.50). THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING! it is expensive but my god it is worth every penny! I used the product before putting my BB cream on. It really is a lovely product and leaves your face looking poreless and silky smooth! I also think it prolongs your make up and keeps it put for longer! I really didn't want to take a full on foundation with me as I felt it would clog up my skin and melt off anyway. I decided to take a good old BB cream. So what is a BB cream you ask? A BB cream is a moisturiser, primer, sunblock, foundation and anti-ageing cream all in one! I love the feel and smell of the SEVENTEEN Blemish Balm BB Cream SPF 25 (£6.99). It has a nice coverage however it does not cover everything! This is where my concealer comes in! I like to use the SEVENTEEN Stay Time Concealer (£4.49) which has a really nice coverage and lasts for ages! I try to dot the concealer sparingly on my problem areas so that I don't waste it. 


Next product I took was the SEVENTEEN Instant Glow Shimmer Brick (£4.99). This product is amazing, I really am pleased with the results! It leaves your cheeks with a lovely warm glow and also has a lovely highlighting effect! love love love this! For my lips I used the Stila Lip Glaze - (c3) Tropica Punch  (£15) which is such a summery colour! I love the lip gloss because it isn't too bold but there is enough colour to notice it. It lasts for such a long time and makes your lips look that little fuller! love it! 

This is the Lipsy Daytime Doll Set (£4) and it is such a great palette! I really love the golds and brown as they stay in place and give such a great colour to my eye! The gold has a lovely shimmer to it and really opens up my eyes! I have had this palette forever and it really doesn't seem to run out! There are also two lip glosses at the bottom. However, I don't tend to use those much. 


I used these lashes for the first time on holiday and they looked lovely! I recieved them as a present and they lasted 3-4 days! They also looked very natural as the lashes were set in a criss cross way. Really impressed with the quality of the product and how long they lasted.

Here is the look re-created at home. I really like the natural look so the products I chose to take really impressed me. I am not wearing the lashes in the photograph above but I used the Benefit They're Real! Mascara (£19.50). A very worth while investement! 

What looks do you like to go for on holiday and which products do you NEED to take! let me know!

Lots of love
