♡ Holiday Beauty Essentials

September 02, 2013

Tomorrow morning i'll be jetting off on holiday to Majorca for 10 days with Richard. I'll probably be at the beach most days whilst consuming my own body weight in ice cream, but that's okay because it's a holiday, right?!

As well as packing the usual beauty stuff  (makeup, nail polish, face wash etc) there are also a few extra bits at bobs i'll be hauling along to accommodate for the warmer climate.

1. Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray
Despite being bare faced at the beach during the day, the evenings and nights in Majorca when I am wearing some makeup tend to be pretty warm, so a few spritzes of this keeps my base in place and helps reduce shine.

2. Nars Laguna Bronzer
As i'm usually quite pale, I never really bother with bronzer, though as i'll hopefully be sporting a tan soon, this is perfect for adding an extra bit of glow. Laguna is the perfect shade, not too orange or muddy, with just the slightest hint of shimmer. 

3. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat
This Sebo Regulating moisturizer is perfect for the warmer climate as it leaves a matte base whilst helping to control shine. 

4. Bioderma Photoderm AKN Mat SPF 30
Despite not having very oily skin I hate how heavy and greasy some facial sunscreens can be. The Bioderma mattifying Fluid, though not truly matte, doesn't leave my skin looking shiny, and is also water resistant which is perfect for the beach. 

5. Mini Bioderma Sensibo H20 Micelle Solution
I have a big bottle of this but I couldn't resist purchasing the really cute mini bottle for traveling! It's my favorite make-up remover and can be used for both face and eyes so I don't need to worry about packing anything else.

6. Evian Facial Spray
So this probably isn't an essential, but it's nice to use when the heat gets a bit too much. I usually keep it on hand for a refreshing and cool mist now and again.  

Have you been or are going on holiday this year? What are your essentials?

  2. Great products to take holidays agree!

  3. It definitely is okay to eat lots of ice cream, what are holidays if not an excuse to eat junk?! My Evian brumisateur is an absolute necessity in the summer. Hope you have a lovely holiday!

  4. I'm thinking about picking up another De-Slick as no matter what time of year it is I am always a shiny mess an hour after applying makeup! Have you tried any of the others by UD? xx
