Being in the sun and therefore getting lots of vitamin D, a good colour and drinking lots of water, holidays are always the best skin days of the year. During the day it was so hot that we were in an out of the water all day. I’m not a swimming-around-not-getting-hair-wet-sunglasses-still-on kind of girl, I’m a how-long-can-I-swim-underwater kinda person. I’d love to be that elegant and sophisticated but I get distracted. So the only thing I wear 9-5 is L’Oréal False Lash Telescopic Waterproof .
In the evenings we would go out most nights so I wanted a little coverage, my go to summer combo is a mix of the Bourjois BB Bronzing Cream and the Healthy Mix foundation in 55. I find this is the best way to get the perfect colour. At the start of the holiday I was 1:1 and by the end 2:1. Its not high coverage, its natural and glowy. Everyone likes to sparkle on holiday, the thing I like best about my face is my high cheek bones so I like to emphasize them by using Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze.
For my eyes I mostly continued to channel the golden goddess vibe, I know no prizes for originality here. For a base I used Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Bulletproof Beige all over the lid and along my bottom lash line. I limit myself to one pallet on holidays and this time The Naked 2 got to come along with me, I used Half Baked all over with Chopper on the outer corner and Bootycall in the inner corner to brighten. I didn’t want to add any harshness to the look by adding a liner so to add a little definition I tight lined just my upper water line with the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black. Usually I’d have used a pencil but I forgot to bring one and it actually worked quite well and stayed put so I might have to try it again sometime.
The lips, I didn’t anything too bright or heavy Tanya Burr’s Lip-gloss in Let’s Travel the World seemed like the obvious choice. Perfect name, perfect consistency and perfect red orange colour summer colour.
Finally perfume my boyfriend’s favourite Dolce & Gabbana the one Desire. Its beautiful for the evenings heavy but still feminine and super super sexy. Its sex appeal in a bottle, its basically everything I’m not but hey a girl can dream.
