What's in my holiday makeup bag?

On Wednesday my family and I are going on holidays to sunny Benalmadena, Costa Del Sol in Spain and I couldn't be more excited. I don't know about you but I love getting ready for any sort of 'going away' occasion, planning my outfits and choosing clothes, accessories I want to take and of course my beauty bits. I thought it would be fun to share with you the content of my makeup bag which will be going with me on holidays.

Makeup tutorial: easy Summer makeup look feat. Too Faced Sweet Peach palette

In today's post I want to share with you simple and quick makeup look which is perfect for a sunny day or Summer evening. I've been enjoying wearing this kind of look for a while and I'm sure it will be one I would do on my holidays. While I won't be wearing much, if any, makeup during the day I know that for the evening I want to glam up a bit but at the same time I don't want to spend ages in front of the mirror instead of enjoying free drinks at the pool bar :)
For my eye look I used the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette which contains some beautiful warm toned shades, perfect for Summer.

Shopping my stash, project 'pan', spending ban - update

Over three weeks ago I started my little project to shop my stash in order to re-discover some older makeup favourites, to try to finish off some products or simply decide that I no longer want them. I also decided to restrict myself to buying only products that I really need and stop spending lots of money on makeup just because something looks pretty or sounds amazing, while I already have a big collection of pretty things to use.
Because I'm off on my holidays next week and will be taking a little break from blogging I wanted to share my update with you today on how I did with my plans.

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF30 - review, before & after photos

As I mentioned before on my blog, finding the perfect foundation has been the never ending challenge for me and on top of that I just like trying new formulations. So when I got the opportunity to pick one of the latest makeup releases available in House Of Fraser I knew immediately I want to test the new Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30* (£30) which has been praised by many beauty bloggers and beauty enthusiasts. It also seemed like a fantastic lightweight foundation with high SPF to use during Summer months and on my upcoming holidays. Although I haven't been using it for a long time I am ready to share with you my thoughts on this Nars product.

Makeup tutorial: smokey matte brown eyes and bright coral lips

In today's post I want to share with you makeup look that had been on my mind for quite some time but I feel like it's a more Summery look so I wanted to wait till the weather warms up a bit and we're more inclined to wear warmer tones on our face and bright lipsticks. This look is suitable for many skin tones and perfect for any age as I'm using almost all matte shades on my lids which usually look very good even on mature skin. And bright lipstick makes anyone look more youthful and playful. It's a great makeup for many occasions but Summer evening is just perfect for that in my opinion.
So let's get to it!
