Hello, here’s my next blog on my Holiday essentials as it’s
that time of year when everyone is going away! This blog has some of the things
I always take away with me not just only the makeup I take but other products
Firstly we can start with sun cream, we all know how
important sun cream is I usually go for Vichy factor 30, it’s a hydrating milk
so it feels lovely on the skin and it smells amazing! Face sun cream is the
most important as well as the rest of your body, and making sure you get sun
cream right up to your lower lash line as this can reduce dark circles under
your eyes. You should wear SPF everyday; the best way is to get a foundation or
moisturiser that has it in already so you don’t forget.
Taking a good body moisturiser is an essential, I’ve always
loved the Nivea Express Hydration it sinks into the skin so quickly and doesn’t
leave it feeling sticky. This is a great product everyone needs to try it. This
also smells great. Its not very expensive and well keep your skin hydrated
after a long day in the sun.
Another great product to take as well as hair oil is a hair
mask, when your hair is in the sun all day and going in and out of the sea it
can dry your hair out very quickly. This is great to use once every couple of
weeks. This L’Oreal coconut hair mask is great to put in your hair over night
and the next day it looks silky and soft. I also think everyone needs to try
I read about this shower gel in a magazine earlier on in the
year and it just smells of summer and going on holiday, it definitely makes
your skin feel fresh. It’s my favourite shower gel at the moment and I keep on
buying it. Its really cheap, its £1.00 from boots at the moment for 250ml.
After I’ve put my Nivea ‘Express Hydration’ Moisturiser on
sometimes I add Nuxe oil, which can be used for face, body and hair. This one
gives the skin a great glow and perfect to put on your arms and legs in the
evening, as it has a shimmery finish.
Now onto what makeup I take on holiday with me, when I go
away I don’t tend to wear much makeup I try to give my skin a break, in the day
I wear, sun cream on my face normally factor 50, waterproof mascara from Revlon
and on my lips Dior ‘addict lip glow’! In the evenings I sometimes just put on
some Charlotte Tilbury ‘Wonder Glow’ or if I want a put more covered I go for
Charlotte Tilbury ‘ Healthy Glow’ this is such a great product, it comes out of
the tube white and then when you rub it in, the colour shows on your skin
giving a lovely sun kissed glow. For bronzer of course go for my Chanel ‘Soleil
tan de Chanel’ I prefer to use a cream bronzer on holiday so the finish isn’t
flat. I also take my Bobbi Brown ‘pink shimmer brick’ this is a perfect holiday
blusher for all skin types. If I want to glam up an evening look of course I
always take a selection of eye shadow pallets, when on holiday I normally reach
for more golden tones, as it looks great with a tan. In the summer I love lip-glosses
instead of a lipstick my favourite lip-gloss has always been Charlotte Tilbury
‘Sweet Stiletto’. I take a small
selection of brushes with me from Real Techniques, Spectrum and Bobbi Brown.
My go to perfume has always been Jo Malone ‘Grapefruit’ for
as long as I can remember. Everyone loves this scent; it’s a perfect holiday
perfume, its not to strong and has a very uplifting smell to it.
