Holiday Edit: Summer Evening Make Up

While on holiday, I tend to keep my make up to a minimal or most days, I don’t actually wear any at all. Especially if it’s a sun drenched holiday, I really don’t see the point in wearing anything as most of the times, it melts away anyways. However, during the evening, when I go out for dinner or to bars, I like to apply make up and glam myself up a little. So here is my go-to evening make up look using some of my current favourite make up products.

how to make your make up last

I started off with my favourite, the Benefit 15 Hour Primer (*) to create a smooth base, then I applied the No7 Concealer (*) to hide dark those pesky dark circles and the Essence Anti Spot Moisturising Make Up in the shade Sand. To bronze and contour, I opted for the Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer (*), followed by a touch of highlighting using Benefit‘s High Beam. Moving on to eyes, I am currently obsessed with the Smashbox Lid Primer (*), it literally holds eye make up for the whole day without a crease in sight. Using my Pixi Eyeshadow Palette (*), Elf Waterproof Liquid Liner (*) in Black, Essence‘s All eyes On Me Mascara (*) and Urban Decay‘s Brow Box (*), my eyes are now complete. On my cheeks, I applied a few swipes of the Liz Earle Powder Blusher in Rose (*) and for my lips, I’m choosing to go with an everyday wearable pink (Jumbo Lipgloss Stick in Flirty and Girly) (*) from Elf Cosmetics. Finishing off with a spritz of Urban Decay‘s All Nighter Make Up Spray, I’m ready for the night ahead, pass over the wine please!

    Great products 🙂 I really want to try out the Benefit primer. I am a big fan of their porefessional so I expect this to be just as good in quality. The all nighter setting spray is a part of my daily make-up routine to keep my base in place~ Running out though so I think i need to purchase my next bottle!

    Thanks for sharing your summer evening look 🙂
    Hope you have a wonderful day~ <3

    Beautiful make-up! Love the look of the bronzer 🙂

    I tend to just wear mascara and my hd brows kit for during the day but in the evening I'll use a tinted moisturiser and a little bit of bronzer along with mascara and my hd brows kit – maybe a champagne coloured eyeshadow as well! <3 x
