The last thing I want to worry about when I’m on vacation is make-up and so I am always on a look-out for fuss-free beauty products that are super quick and easy to apply. Well, I am happy to say that I finally narrowed down my top 3 must-haves which will enhance your features without feeling too heavy or making you look like you have a ton of make-up on. My current top 3 consist of cream eye-shadow ( super easy to apply, the universal flattering purply shade will really make your eyes pop ), a cream blush/bronzer ( love a multitasker and cream blush gives you that perfect on vacation glow ) and a super moisturizing shimmery nude lipstick.
Perfect Mono Shadow in Dahlia – I generally prefer cream shadows over powder because the color payoff is so much better, they stay on longer, and are so much easier to apply and blend. This particular one I love because of its beautiful shade! It’s the perfect deep purple shade with a bit of shimmer and velvet finish. The color is exactly what you see in a tub so it’s very pigmented which I love. The application couldn’t be easier—I’ve often use my finger to sweep it across my lids when in a rush. I’ve also used this eyeshadow as an eyeliner using an angled brush—super easy to apply and something different from my typical black liner.
Blush of Rose in Rosa del Deserto – this has been my go-to product as of late. When it’s summer time, I want to wear as little make up as possible—I don’t want to pile on bronzer, blush, and highlighter on top as all of that feels too heavy. I love this product because it’s a multitasker—it’s technically a bronzer but the shade is just so perfect that it doubles as a blush too (it gives me a hint of that peachy color and I’m obsessed). Because it’s cream based, it blends and melts into my skin so it looks super natural, and I love a natural look when it comes to makeup.
Shine Lipstick in Naked – it feels like I’m always on the hunt for a perfect nude lipstick. This one is definitely it for me this summer! It’s just a bit sheer so in a way it works with your natural lip to create the perfect nude shade on your lips; often when nude lipsticks are super pigmented and opaque, they tend to wash me out so I go for sheer ones. It’s super moisturizing too so it doubles up as lip balm. Another trick that I do with some lipsticks is apply them as eye shadow—this one gives a very subtle shine to your lids, love!
What about you guys, what’s your go-to on vacation make-up look? Or do you skip make-up entirely?
