1. Clinique ANTI BLEMISH cleansing foam
I don't really have to sell Clinique to anyone - their products are fantastic. This facial wash is particularly great during the summer. It leaves your face feeling refreshed and ultra clean without feeling dry. The foam gel makes it really easy to use especially after a swim! It has anti-blemish action too so all in all - highly recommend it for your summer travel bag.
2. John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Illuminating Shampoo for all Brunettes
3. Guerlain Terracotta Moisturising Bronzing Powder
This bronzing powder is light and perfect for summer bronzed look. It also conceals blemishes and you only need to apply a small amount for that. It looks very natural - a must have for after swim evenings!
4. Giorgio Armani Face Fabric
How much do you hate the oily makeup feel on a hot day? If you do, this is the product for you. Face Fabric is the most apt name for this wonderful product and well done to Armani for coming up with this! It is a mousse and not liquid, allowing it to be easily applied and keep your face matte. It provides light but very good coverage - it is literally like wearing a moisturiser. Absolutely perfect for day wear. If you want to wear it in the evening, you may have to add highlighter on your face to get a "contour" effect.
If you apply a large quantity of it with a good foundation brush (I use Clinique) it can almost give you an airbrushed look for those glam summer evenings. For a natural look, just apply it like a moisturiser. It reduces the appearance of pores and evens out the skin tone. I also have to emphasise that not only does it give you a natural, no makeup look, it also feels like you are wearing no foundation! In addition, it allows your skin to stay matte all day (unlike other foundations that make your skin feel oily towards the end of the day).
5. Charlotte Tilbury: EYES TO MESMERISE (Bette) Long-Lasting Easy Cream Eyeshadow
This is lovely eyeshadow for a bronzed natural look. The colour it shows up depends on your skin tone and I wouldn't really recommend it for people with very light skin tones as it doesn't really show up. My skin tone in tanned/medium brown and I have to put a few coats of it to show up as bronzy gold. The texture is lovely and the application is quite easy (I use it as eyeshadow or eyeliner but I think it works really well as an eyeliner). It is a beautiful colour. it works really well with a bronze look. It works especially well if you use a highlighter under the brow with gold eyeshadow. The consistency is a mousse/crème. It lasts for up to 8-10 hours.
6. Clinique Chubby Sticks Lip Balm
Highly recommend this product for holidays. It does not melt in the heat moisturises your lips without being greasy. the sticks come in a variety of amazing colours so you can just buy a set for morning to night look! Great buy!
7. MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil
This is more of a lip pigment than pencil or lipstick. It can be used as a gloss on top of your lipstick or on its own for a natural glossy look. It's a good product to throw in your purse for a quick refresh. Also, its not greasy and doesn't slide off your lips. These come in a great variety of colours and I would recommend a dark and light one for day/night. Finally, no sharpener needed! I love MAC - they think of everything!!
