Holiday Beauty Favourites

When I’m on holiday, makeup always isn’t always my favourite thing to wear. Needless to say,  I took away with me some new products that I was so desperate to try out and then eventually fell in love with. I also used a few of them to create a really dewy, bronzed look that I was also obsessing over and wearing on the occasions we went out for dinner and drinks. I wanted to share my favourite products that I used throughout the holiday and continuing to use during these warmer months. There’s good mix of some new discoveries and old staples in my routine.

By Terry Cellularose CC Serum – Sunny Flash £61

It is safe to say this incredible skin care product has become my one of my all-time beauty favourites and I would be lost without it. I very rarely wear foundation anymore on a daily basis as this product makes my skin look glowy, flawless and bronzed that I feel I don’t need anything else, especially on holiday you want to let your skin breathe and not weigh it down with heavy makeup. I would really recommend getting the shade ‘sunny flash’ as it adds a gorgeous tint of colour as well. IMG_0175

The Body Shop Honey Bronzing Powder – Dark Golden Matte 05 £14

I’ve never been into bronzer or blush but recently I’ve been focusing on my base makeup and wearing very minimal mascara to achieve a natural bronzed look. It was this product that changed the game. I really love the way it looks paired with the ByTerry serum underneath. I’m now looking to really expand my Body Shop makeup collection as the quality is so good and they’re cruelty free too. 



Sleek Blush By 3 Palette – Pink Lemonade £10 | Icing Sugar, Macaroon, Pink Mint

As I just mentioned, I’m not really one for blush but I did find myself reaching for his palette whilst I was away, to balance out the bronze and add even more glow. Included is two gorgeous pink toned, shimmery blushes and one brighter pink cream blush. They are super pigmented so I just add a little and they add a really nice flush of colour.

Versace Bright Crystal Eau De Toilette  £30

This sweet, spring scent is curently on sale on FeelUnique and if you love floral but very fresh scents this would be one for you. This Versace perfume is such a lovely scent especially for the Summertime, it’s light but still lasts really well. I’m just gutted I’ve nearly ran out!


The Body Shop Lip Liner £8

I’m unsure on the colour as it isn’t written on the pencil but this lip liner is a lushous coral shade that I used alongside a Topshop lipstick for the ultimate coral lip combination. I love this shade and corals always look so nice with a bronzed makeup look or a tan. It’s a really decent liner that’s creamy and lasts well too, really impressed.


Topshop Lipstick – Ditsy (similar) £8

The second part to the coral lip combination was this Topshop lipstick in the colour ‘Ditsy’. This was the first Topshop lipstick I bought and still probably my favourite. I couldn’t find the exact one but any bright coral shade works perfectly with tanned, glowy makeup. These lipticks are so moisturising but so pigmented and very affordable. Love!

Nieva In-Shower Body Moisturiser £3

I absolutely had to include this body product as I used it to death whilst I was away and still use it all the time now. This makes you skin feel amazing and so nourished, which is ideal when you’re on holiday and the sun is drying your skin out. You apply this after your usual shower wash and it’s as easy as that. It smells so nice and leaves you skin feeling super smooth as well.
