Holiday Makeup Picks 2016

Do you have dilemma which ‘makeup items’ to take with you on summer holidays?

So many out there but which one to choose.?? We have makeup overloads in the market with makeup brands and all the latest must have’s. Can’t tell you that these makeup picks which I am sharing with you here today would be = ‘you-must-have’ because we are all different with different skin colour, style and texture of the skin. I can tell you that ‘these-picks’ are definitely worthwhile to try.

I believe that there is nothing better than ‘personalized makeup session’, at least twice a year. Its all good to try those makeup items that your friend using it and loves it but, is it for you? Is it really face or eye makeup product suitable to you and you only?

I say; why not give it a TRY, you just NEVER KNOW. They might just be your colour and a suitable makeup product. And quite the opposite.

What’s your favorite makeup item for the summer 2016 ?

For some of you, beach holiday might be this month and for some, a bit later. If it is later in summer months, you have enough time to search what’s suitable and choose which makeup items might be the one will “suits & will include in your suitcase.”

I am packing right now and, have to keep telling myself ( my inner voice saying… ) that I don’t need another eyeshadow – that; I can do with only 1 light shade for most mornings and, 1 dark shade to create evening look. Its a hard choice. I would advice ‘go for basics’ and natural shades and, add one or two colours to match your outfits. 1 extra darker eyeshadow and 1 different colour of eyeliner that you don’t usually wear. And, voila’!

Back in March, I was talking about ‘holiday beauty treats‘ which included skincare, sun protection and hair care. Today, is all about ‘holiday makeup picks’. You might all own a favorite light foundation, tinted moisturiser, CC or BB cream and only searching for extra product to make your skin better, more radiant. Extra shimmer, extra something’ illuminating and, a ‘touch of colour’. So here they are, – my makeup picks!

Holiday Makeup Pick’s

FullSizeRender (91)

Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Skin Liquid Illuminating Emulsion 30ml £42

Gorgeous illuminating product with a touch of shimmer. Very light textured and can be used on clean skin after moisturiser to give you a gentle illuminating glow around cheek area and above and, you can also mix with your favorite foundation for all over the skin. It’s infused with raspberry stem cell extract and bearberry complex to prevent the damage which causes by pollution and free radical. For all skin tones and textures. Love it!

By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Sun Glow Sun Bronze n.3 30ml £76

If you tried Soleil Terrybly Bronzing Serum in the past, this would be a nice reminder of it. However, this is an extension from Densiliss family. So it is bronzing skin product but is anti-wrinkle blur Bronzing Serum, ultra smoothing and flawless with mimetic factor. Three shades in place, from very light for porcelain complexion to darker shades. It is very sheer and light texture as most serums are so no need to be scared to go 1 shade darker. After all, we are entering summer season. Choose from other two shades – Sun Fair n.1 & Sun Nude n.2.

By Terry Ombre Blackstar Blond Opal n.3 £27.50

My absolute favorite cream long-lasting eye shadow which I have been using for number of years. Lovely opal light shade for brightening effect if, you use mainly in inner corner of the eye. ( I also like Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Jean’ Long lasting easy cream eyeshadow ) For smokey Eye Look, why not By Terry Ombre Blackstar n.1 Black Pearl. Its dark grey shade and you can achieve your evening look in few minutes.

By Terry Line Desinger n.5 Ocean Vibes £28

The latest arrival from By Terry for Sun Cruise Summer 2016. Only last week on the shelves nationwide in Space NK’s. Highly pigmented liquid line with precision brush for a perfect line. So easy to use and so waterproof. Love the strong pigment of it and application is as easy as it can gets. Awesome!

By Terry Terrybly Growth Booster Mascara £33.50

Growth booster mascara which instantly gives you kick, the lengthening effect for your lashes. I haven’t been using eyelash curlers since I have discovered By Terry mascaras. Its been a while, a few years and I am counting… Terrybly Mascaras are now in 7 shades. I like Dark blue – Terrybleu, Purple – Purple Success and Bright blue – Terryfic Blue. Try and choose your match for your eye colour.

Chantecaille Lip Chic Wild Poppy £30

Amazingly chic, hydrating and plumping effect. Lipstick and lip gloss in one with a long lasting finish. This lip texture is every girl favorite. Well, for girls who likes only matte finish might not be. Its more glossy than matte but absolute perfect for those who look for the best ingredients in lipsticks.

Smith and Cult Birdie Num Num 14ml £19

Love the Green colour! Hue of green and blue exact, turquoise in summer months. This ‘Birdie num num’ reminded me of blue lagoon so it wasn’t difficult decision to make of having one. It is amazing smooth even coverage and the formula is super high-shine and long wear. Click here and choose yours’ from other shade.

This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle 120ml £37

It is perfect and it is leg-miracle. It will transforms you to an instant A-list leg shimmer and sun-kissed glow. It contains vitamin C which is powerful antioxidant and protects against premature ageing. Vitamin E and arnica helps reconstruct and even out skin tone. This product could be great for those who need an extra colour, extra perfect tan on the legs. For those who prefer a bit of shimmer after sun exposure and want to enhance the glow, I would recommend – This Works Skin Deep Golden Elixir 120ml £45 – antioxidant serum with 24-carat gold to help stimulate collagen, hydrates and enhances the skin. And, of course gives you lovely golden shimmer.

And, don’t forget By Terry recent launch of 3 lippy shades from Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge’s range  – the lipsticks are full of hydrating properties and feel moisturising and wonderful soft. Ah, here is my quick selfie pic from last week. I am wearing Pink n.16 – Rose Boom Boom. Another lip-addition’ to my travel makeup bag.
