Summer Holiday Beauty Bits!

While the majority of my makeup collection is appropriate for all-year-round, there are a few products that only see the light of day for summertime and holidays. 
Seeing as it's prime holiday season right now, I thought I'd do a little post about my holiday favourites...

First up is NARS' multiple in Laguna. If you're more tanned, or a darker skintone, this might be appropriate year-round, but for me it's strictly a tanned-only product. It gives a gorgeous glow and I like to use it as a replacement for bronzer when I'm at my most tanned, along my cheekbones, a little on my forehead and nose.
The next is my favourite waterproof mascara from Bourjois. I only ever use waterproof mascara on holiday, so I don't like to buy high end ones. I really like this as it gives loads of volume and length (think doll eyes) but it stays put even in the pool. It also has a massive brush too so it's quick to apply - no time wasting putting on your makeup when you could be outside in the sunshine!
The next is a lipstick that has been a summer staple for me for a good few years now. It's Costa Chic from MAC. It's one of those pale corals that looks horrendous when you're not tanned, so this is one that I dig out for the summer every year. It's a frost, so has a slight frosted finish too it, but nothing too obvious. It's so pretty with a golden tan, I love it.
Last but not least are two nail polishes that never fail to but a smile on my face in the summer month. The first is Butter London's Disco Biscuit here.) This semi-matte gel-textured fuchsia has a heavy dose of blue glitter. It's such a unique polish and it looks great with summer brights. (I've done a full review of this
I also adore Colour Club's 'Reign in Spain' neon coral shade. This makes you look twice as tanned as you are. I always use colours like this in the summer to enhance by tan and it works a treat! (I've done a full review of this here)
Are you heading off anywhere nice this summer? What are your favourite summer holiday products?

  1. Hi Fleur! Nice post as always! I also use some summer-only products. I switch my regular mascara for a waterproof version and this year I chose the Bourjois "Volume 1 seconde". The Huile Prodigieuse from Nuxe is my summer treat and I love Tart Deco nail polish from Essie. Xo, Alexandra

    1. I've had to switch my mascara to a waterproof one in the last couple of days! Mascara and hot weather do not mix otherwise! I'm going to give the Bourjois one a go, I've never tried it! :)

  10. Ah I'm desperate to try the Nars matte multiple at the moment, but looking at the lighter Altai shade especially with if being more of a cream product. The mascara sounds amazing, I brought a Seventeen one that I really wasn't that impressed by, and it wasn't entirely waterproof haha.

  27. I'm heading off to Asia this summer! More specifically: Malaysia, Hong Kong and China and I couldn't be more excited! Those places, at least the first two, tend to be more hot and humid, so a summer vacation must are facial sprays to cool down. I will definitely be bringing my Caudalie travel sized beauty elixir and most likely transfer my Mario Badescu facial spray to a travel spray bottle so I can bring that one too! And of course, to keep my body dry and less sweaty, I will be using my LUSH dusting powder in Silky Underwear =)
