holiday makeup : i need your advice

19 May 2010

Calling all of you makeup loving girls that love a bit of fun in the sun! I need your advice :)

On the 27th of june I will be going to portugal for 10 days and I am sooooo excited! I haven't been abroad for so so so long and I haven't been anywhere hot since I was 11 and went to Fuertaventura. But being only 11 I didn't wear any makeup and now that I do and i'm worrying about what to wear. I don't want to wear nothing, even though we'll be alone in the private villa/mansion thingy but I don't want to wear anything to heavy.

I don't want to end up looking like this clown ;) - Amazing film by the way! A must see!!
my thoughts..
 i should probably take a primer.. right?

 i will not take a liquid foundation. i'm thinking of starting to use bare minerals. what do you think?

 i'm going to take a single light apricot eyeshadow and that's all
 should i take my shadow insurance?

 i will take colourful eyeliners - i have a lot of gosh pencil liners and liquid liners that will be perfect and heard that if you pop a liner in the freer for 15 minutes before hand it is likely to last longer in the heat, maybe this will work i don't know?
 i will take blush because frankly, i need it

 and i will take my lush lip balms and maybe lip glosses too?

But even though i'm thinking about all that i'm still not sure whether that's the right way to go about it or whether i'm missing something?

I'd love to hear about your experiences of wearing makeup in a hot climate and what does and doesn't work for you. so please comment below :):)

Thank yooooou
