I'm kind of high-maintenance so going on holiday doesn't always mean going makeup-free however this is my version of a fuss-free holiday look. Funny story but I think I might be changing the date of my holiday to July, as the weather forecast isn't good for next week... But I will keep you posted and of course I will carry on with my daily holiday-themed posts this week!
For my base I go for the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser (£29, post here), as it doesn't slip and slide even over my combination skin. I feel as though it nicely reduces any redness and evens my skintone whilst still being a really light coverage. I then also use the Maybelline Instant Eye Erase Concealer (£7.99, post here), as it's so easy to apply. It practically blends itself and really reduces my dark circles without being too heavy.
It was going to be a 5-product face however unfortunately my beloved e.l.f. brow gel and clear mascara is discontinued so I've found some alternatives. For eyelashes I have the Seventeen Clear Definition Mascara (£4.69). Personally I find wearing heavy black eye makeup really uncomfortable in the heat as it tends to melt, drip in my eyes and really irritate them! So for a subtle bit of something without the discomfort, I go for this. Obviously it's not going to give you 'wow' lashes but it's just a nice little boost. For my eyebrows I have the Eylure Brow Control & Shape Gel (£6.25) as I find a clear gel makes my brows look a little more groomed and fuller without going to the effort of filling them in. I also love that this doesn't leave my brows feeling stiff, it just gives a very natural hold.
Finally I have the Pixi Shea Butter in Honey Nectar (usually £8, currently £6) and the Seventeen Instant Glow Golden Bronze Shimmer Brick (£4.99). The Pixi lip balm is a really nourishing formula and the shade is a fuss-free natural nude. The Seventeen Shimmer Brick has seriously impressed me! I haven't tried the Bobbi Brown ones but I probably won't given how great Golden Bronze is in particular. You can swirl all the shades together and apply to the top of your cheekbones and brow bone to add a bit of colour and a natural, dewy glow. You could also take the individual shades to use as eyeshadow.
What's your go-to effortless holiday look?
