I considered doing a post on the full contents of my holiday makeup bag but then realised it’s basically the contents of my how much is my face worth post and wouldn’t actually be worth reading, so instead I’m looking at the new additions to my makeup bag for this summer holiday.
I adore Leighton Denny nail polishes and this colour is just gorgeous. What’s even better is that it goes with my holiday wardrobe and as it was sent to me without the PR knowing this is even more of a miracle. The reason I adore Leighton Denny nail polishes is they go on easily but also dry quickly which for an impatient person like me is definitely a good thing.
This shade is one I can’t quite make up my mind about. It’s described on the website as a liquid copper which is inspired by fizzing drinks and endless sparkle. It’s copper which means my inner blogger should be jumping for joy but I’m still undecided. I have decided that I’m going to have this colour on my toes for the summer and I’m hoping it’ll grow on me.
Joan Collins Timeless Beauty – Divine Lips in Bella* (£18)
I swear the Pr that sent these products to me is a mind reader or at least knows exactly what will look good on me and what I’ll actually use. The Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Divine Lips Lipstick in shade Bella is the shade I would have chosen for myself. I seem to be gravitating towards pale pinks at the moment and this one is perfect for me.
Described as a soft, pretty pink cream that has cool undertones, this is becoming my go-to lipstick shade for the summer. My skin tone suits makeup with cool tones which is becoming harder to find as most warm shades have warm (read orange) undertones which just make me look odd. Even after being in the sun, I think this shade will be perfect for me as it won’t make me look overly made up.
