Having endlessly pinned bronze makeup inspirations, tutorials and editorials…
In my head it’s always summer and I am constantly living the beach state of mind. Remember this? Well, it’s now happening. As you read this, I am off to a foreign land for a week. And the fact that I will turn a year older in a place that’s completely new to me makes it only more magical. I thought I’d do a quick post featuring some of my favourite summer essentials that I’ve packed along for the holiday.
The Lakme Eyeconic has been my everyday go-to since I started using it a couple of months ago and now I am on my third refill already. Team that with Revlon Color Stay Liquid Eye Pen for the flicked liner and I am good to go. I am a lip balm junkie. Having tried almost all varieties available at a store, it’s safe to say that the Neutrogena lip balm is the best no-nonsense lip balm that actually works! The Clinique Chubby Stick has been a favourite since its launch now and the Victoria’s Secret body mists seems like the best bet for any holiday in my opinion. It’s only been a while since I started using the Za True White Day Protector and I am hooked. It’s light, easy on the skin and has SPF 26+ PA +++ which easily makes it a must have in any summer beauty essentials kit. Also, the new L’Oreal Caresse range of lipsticks and glosses make for a light and easy summer lip colour and the Rimmel Stay Matte is the best compact set powder I’ve used yet. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a big Bath and Body Works, Victoria’s Secret and Boots hoarder. Their products accompany me on every holiday.
Add to this list a pair of headphones, bikinis and tankinis (currently obsessed with the Roxy tropical print swimsuit above!), vintage sunglasses, a bit of bling to spruce up the basics, a trusted camera to capture the visual wonders, a diary to pen thoughts, a good book to while the time away and I am ready for a long summer fiesta.
A (special) travel diary and tons of outfit posts will be lined up for the weeks ahead. Also, you can follow me on Instagram as I will be updating it on a daily basis with the holiday pictures.
