Holiday Favourites

While I was away, I missed my August favourites post so after coming back off holiday, I thought I'd put together a holiday favourites post featuring the products I used each day while I was on holiday.

Jemma Kidd Mineral Skin Tint | I picked this up in my local bargain shop for around £6 and so far I've been really impressed with it, it's more of a BB cream style base, a bit thicker than your average tinted moisturisers but what I love about this product is the glow it gives the skin. While I was on holiday I did worry about the type of glow I'd get, there's a fine line between sweat and a healthy sheen but this gives the right amount of the latter. The coverage of this is light and buildable, and lasts around 6 hours before needing a touch up.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Mascara | I picked this up in duty free at the airport after being desperate for a mascara for months! Being in duty free is paradise but when you've got an hour to spare, stand after stand full of beauty and not enough time to get round them all, it becomes tense. A nice lady at the Estee Lauder counter helped me pick out this mascara and I'm so pleased with it. At home and on holiday, my previous mascaras would run and end up transferring onto my brow bone or below my eyes and it would drive me mad, the Double Wear mascara stays in place for 16 hours without any transfers and helps separate and define lashes. The brush is what's my favourite, it's a slim brush with bristles that are all one length, the overall shape of the brush is quite narrow meaning it works wonders for building up volume at the root of the lashes, getting into the lashes on the inner corner and coating the bottom lashes without a smudge in sight.

Mac Pro Longwear Blush in Eternal Sun | I know I've featured this on my blog so many times but if I thought I loved it when I was pale, I love it even more now I have a tan. When my skin has some colour, this blush really emphasises my tan giving me a sunkissed glow that lots of people have complimented me on. The colour really suits any skin tone whether you're pale, it gives you some colour or with a tan it really enhances your bronzed glow. This burnt orange colour looks so stark in the pan but dusted over the cheeks it really transforms the face, I've used this to replace my beloved Nars Laguna bronzer.

Kiehl's Creme De Corps | This year I didn't take after sun, I'm a bit dubious about after sun really and whether it works so I stuck to a trusty moisturiser that really packs in the hydration. When I go abroad my skin gets so tight and dehydrated so after every shower, I would apply this and let it sink in, and it let my skin so soft and intensely hydrated. The packaging isn't the most travel friendly but in comparison to big pots of after sun, I'd rather make room for this. What I love about this product is the consistency, it's a thick butter texture which means you're not fighting a battle with creams slipping out of your hand and all over the floor. The scent is to die for and smells like holidays in itself.

Apart from these, the actual holiday was a huge favourite for me too and I'm now facing serious holiday blues!
