Makeup of the day

Getting Holiday Ready!


There’s no better feeling than knowing that in a few days, you’ll be sat on an aeroplane, going somewhere exotic. Me and my sister are off to Rome for the weekend. It’s somewhere that I have always wanted to go, and I’m really looking forward to it.

Usually a week before I go, I like to play with my makeup and see what sort of things would be appropriate to take away.

As much as I love the above look, the foundation that I wore would be too light for a warmer climate where I will tan pretty quickly. I plan on taking my L’Oréal Infallible 24Hr Foundation as this does oxidise slightly, and has a much warmer tone than the True Match shade that I currently wear.  Of course, if I see another one before then, I will take this. I’m only away for three days so I really want to avoid taking anything new.

For blush and bronzer, I love wearing coral shades on holiday; I find that they brighten up my face a bit more, and it’s my perfect flush shade when I have a tan. Today I used Bare Minerals ready Blush in ‘The Secret’s Out.’ As for Bronzer, I have continued to use the CYO Bronzing powder, as this will be an ideal shade with a tan.

As for the eyes, as you all know I love green shades regardless of the weather, and I plan on taking some form on green palette away with me. However I won’t be taking this one because it is too bulky. The shades are stunning and blended out really well, but it is a very bulky palette. I used the cargo Wanderlust palette today. I would love to take the Jaclyn Hill palette, but this will create the same issue. It’s a really large palette. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

For the lips, I tend to go bright. And I adore orange toned shades such as Urban Decay’s bang and Slowburn. Today I wore Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte lipstick in ‘Tell Laura.’ I love this shade so much. It’s the perfect shade for holidays.

I will have to pack lightly as our luggage allowance is tiny, and I can’t just take makeup! When I decide what I am taking to Rome, I will update you guys. However, in the meantime, if you have any recommendations, please let me know.

Have a lovely day, and take care.
