My Summer Holiday Essentials / Beauty + Fashion

As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to start thinking of the all-important essentials you’ll need for your travels and today I want to share with you some of my top picks including beauty and fashion.

I’ve been loving Sunkissed Gradual Tan* to build up my colour and give me that beautiful healthy looking glow. It’s very creamy and hydrating it contains Shea Butter and Vitamin E which leaves my skin soft, smooth and smelling lovely. I also like their Self-Tan Mousse* which gives a gorgeous instant bronze tan and I love its delicious coconut scent. It’s easy and quick to apply I always use a tanning mitt for an even coverage, it absorbs quickly and it’s non-drying as it contains Aloe Vera which helps hydrate the skin.

Finish off your holiday glow with Sunkissed Glimmer Compact* It comes with five shimmery shades which are perfect to create a soft, warm highlight when applied to the apples of your cheeks and forehead. Also you can use each individual shade as an eyeshadow and even apply on your chest/decolletage for that bronzed glow. It’s a multipurpose products which makes it perfect for holiday.

SPF is another holiday essential and I really love Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sun Lotion spf 30* It not only smells delicious but feels amazing on the skin without being greasy or sticky. I’ve tried so many sun creams but this one is definitely a favourite that I always go back to. I have also been using their Exotic Breeze Fragrance Mist* – Juicy Mango and Golden Amber scent it smells so good it’s like a holiday in a bottle!

I like to wear bright lippies in summer and I always gravitate towards coral/orange shades for holiday. This Mavala Orange Smoothie Lipstick* is so so pretty and perfect for summer. It’s a smooth, creamy formula that doesn’t dry out your lips and feels very comfortable on.

Mavala also do the cutest little nail polishes perfect to take on holiday with you and top up your mani/pedi. There are so many gorgeous shades in the new Summer collection, my top picks are Pink City, Blue Mountains and Purple Beach. They’re glossy and long wearing which makes them perfect for holiday.

And lastly a couple of fashion favourites I have this gorgeous swimsuit from Freya, I absolutely love the cool geometric print (Tropicool*) it features a bandeau bikini top and lightly padded foam cups for a rounded shape and additional support, C to FF cup which makes it perfect for the curvy girls. It’s such a flattering fit, it’s very pretty and comfortable.

You can’t go on holiday without a pair of sunnies and I have this super cool aviator style ones from Iolla – The Lennox Sun* the glasses feature a chrome silver frame with blue mirror lenses, they also include polarised UV tint & back surface anti-glare coating. They’re such a great quality and lovely design.

What are your top picks for holiday? Any recommendations?
