There’s something about the scent of a hot summer night abroad that is just divine. The warm air, the cool breeze from the ocean and the smell of food combined with a fuggy heat. Ella Risbridger’s Fresh Morrocan article for The Pool describes what I’m talking about so beautifully. It’s on these lovely evenings that I like to shower off the salt and sand from a day at the beach, apply a generous lather of after-sun and apply a little make-up. I really do it mean it when I say, a little – just the essentials to look a little more pulled together.
Here’s what’s in my make-up bag…

Of course, I am taking my favourite moisturiser which is the Olay Complete Moisturiser Fluid SPF15. I love the texture and consistency of this moisturiser which is non-greasy and very lightweight. I am also swerving foundation and just taking a simple trio of creamy concealers from Rimmel London. There are three shades ranging from light to dark and are perfect for mixing together to create a bespoke colour. 
I really love that glowy, sun-kissed look that the sun naturally applies to your cheeks, however, because I do a lot of shade-bathing, I have to amp up that glow somehow. My favourite cream bronzer is the Sunkissed Luxe Bronzed Shimmer from MUA. I simply roll it over my cheeks and blend for a lovely golden glow. 
Talking of glow, I take my highlighter game up a few notches with the MUA ‘Undress your skin’ highlighterthe pearlescent shade looks particularly gorgeous when dabbed on the top of the cheekbones. Of course, not all glow is good glow so I combat any shine with the Rimmel Insta Matte Fix + Shine it gets the job done and is perfect for slipping in your clutch bag for midnight touch-ups.

Eyes + Lips…

My favourite eyeshadow duo is a little MAC palette I created which comprises of the shades; ‘Mythology’ and ‘Texture’ two beautiful summer shades in pink and orange tones. They really make blue eyes pop whilst adding warmth and depth. I accompany these with a gel brown eyeliner, my favourite is from Rodial, it sits comfortably in the waterline and stays put all day long. I finish off my look with lashings and lashings of the Maybelline Great Lash mascara – a true icon and a staple in my make-up bag.

If you know me, you’ll know I love lipstick and on holiday, the bolder, the better! I love to wear the Jelly Pong Pong lip crayon in a cute, bold pink. Or work a fiery orange, The L’Oreal Colour riche formula is a firm favourite. After all whatever lippy I choose, it has to hold up sipping on one too many Aperol Spritz’.

What make-up do you like to wear on holiday?
