Holiday Beauty Picks | February Edition.

Monday, 24 February 2014


Hello, from Tunisia! If you read my Winter Sun Fashion post, you will know that I was getting ready to head off for a girly week away with my mum. I'll post more about my holiday and what I got up to, when I get back. However, I thought over the next couple of days i'd give you an insight into what makeup/skincare I chose to take with me.
First up, makeup...

During the day I don't wear any make up as it's too hot and i'm in & out of the pool all day, it would just be a waste. I opt for a good moisturiser containing SPF, and Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom, which is like a your lips but better type colour. link |
In the evening, I wear a light base which is where Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation comes into it, giving my skin a lovely dewy complexion with a low to medium coverage. My chin can get quite oily, so I will carry my go to powder, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder link | For a bit more coverage I will use the YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch link | under my eyes covering any dark circles, from late nights sipping cocktails to early mornings in the sun, and Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer link | on any spots. 

Although i'm going on holiday, I don't get colour on my face instantly, so a slight application of MAC Bronzing Powder link | until I achieve a tanned complexion will come in handy. My all time favourite highlighter is MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle link | which is why it has earned a well deserved spot in my holiday picks.

Blush wise i've opted for a cream blusher from Topshop in the shade Flush link |, a lovely coral peach colour and a powder blush in Stay Pretty link |, a baby pink colour which adds a lovely subtle hint of colour.

It's only recently that i've discovered the wonders of nude eyeliner, I don't know what i'd do without it now, Rimmel Scandaleyes in Nude link | is my favourite, it really awakens my eyes up leaving them looking bigger and brighter. Benefit They're Real Mascara link | is amazing and was an obvious choice when it came to picking a mascara to take with me. It really lengthens and thickens my lashes without clumping them together. 
For eyeshadow i'm only taking two choices, Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr link | in On & On Bronze and Pink Gold. Both leave a lovely colour behind whilst keeping it quite subtle.


Now for my favourite part, lipsticks! It was hard trying to pick lipsticks to take with me, I actually felt guilty on the ones I haven't chosen to take..is that bad? Yep, probably! However after many tears, I jest, I finally made my final choices, sticking to orange and corals. YSL Rouge Volupte in Orange Imperitent link | is a gorgeous shiny orange pink colour, probably my favourite out of the lipsticks i've chosen. Topshop in Oh La La link |, is a lovely, bright coral orange and Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach link | is a lovely subtle peach pink colour. 

What are your must take products when you go away? Any of the above?
