Perfect holiday makeup
Avoid using 'liquid' or 'creamed' foundation at all costs, it'll only run and becoming smudgy throughout the duration of the day.
-Instead use a loose or pressed powder.... but be careful with the coverage of pressed powder as it can become very caked if too much applied. (In the pictures below I used Iman pressed powder which is very very light if applied with a fantail brush rather than a powder brush)
I am not too much of an eyeshadow person, I like simple eyeliner and enhanced eyebrows. I guess that is good for holidays as its not so stressful to do! However if you are going for a nice tropical look, its nice to have some interesting blends with bright colours, also don't forget to compliment the colours with your outfit!
Cheeks: The usual! Mine is by 'Sleek- Apricot' using a slant powder brush to create that high cheek bone effect! #Diva!
Lips: I believe lipgloss will do for me... its simple, easy to apply after you have eaten, brightens your teeth when you smile in that wonderful weather and gives you that perfect pout if you use a similar coloured lip pencil
Me and Mili just after our national news broadcast. Our makeup was quite vibrant yet subtle. #Class Eyebrows enhanced, minimal eyes and lip makeup with blusher perfect for our skin tone.
|Nothing dramatic..... simple yet attractive makeup was fine for me|
|Using YSL Lip gloss.... i am yet to blog on this gloss so look out for it!|
|Classic example of holiday makeup- fresh, lightly covered powder, your favourite lipgloss colour and your usual blusher tone, and kohl liner on the waterline. This lady is likely to not have smudges or run throughout the heat of the day!|
|Slightly more caked as using a powder brush as I said before... but this is for the evening as we were getting ready for the big show!!!|
Stay tuned..... more congo blogs coming..!
