When it comes to holiday style celebs have got it nailed. Heres how to achieve their on trend vacation looks.
Take a leaf out of California girl Jennifer Aniston’s book. A light veil of tinted moisturiser like Bobbi Brown Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer [£27], lashings of MAC Splashproof Lash [£13.50] and a smudge of Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge [£17] on the lips is the basis of this look. Just sweep NARS Bronzing Powder [£24] up cheek-bones, across your forehead and down your t-zone to warm your complexion for a finish.
Gwen Stefani’s trademark red pout can add some dressiness to your holiday look. It requires minimal effort to achieve and needs the very minimum of makeup elsewhere on the face. Use a translucent powder like Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder [£29] to add a flawless finish to skin before colouring in lips with Revlon Just Bitten Lip stain + Balm in Gothic [£5.99] – it has a felt-tip nib so there is no need to line lips first.
A slight hint of metallic across the lid and smudged in the inner corner of the eyes is enough to enhance Blake Lively’s already enviable tan. Don’t go overboard on the metallics for fear of looking as though you’re heading up a 70’s disco revival, instead use strategically and sparingly. Smudge By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Frozen Quartz [£27.50] along the lid and into the corners of the eyes. Finish with mascara.
Make your liner the focal point of your look like Zooey Deschanel. The easiest way to achieve a feline 60’s flick is to use a fine tipped brush like Bobbi Brown Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush [£21]. Begin by keeping the line close to the upper lashes and then, with a steady hand, flick out at the outer corner. Layer the liner to build up a thicker flick. The trick to make your liner last through a humid night on holiday is to use a long wearing formula such as Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Gel Eyeliner [£15.50].
Adding a touch of blush to the apples of your cheeks makes you look healthy and youthful, just look at Kate Bosworth. You don’t even need to wear it with a scrap of any other make-up, which makes it the ideal product to carry in your beach bag. We love Topshop Blush in Head Over Heels [£6], it’s the perfect shade of coral that suits any skin tone. Apply with finger tips to the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards.
As established, a painted pout is the most instant way to drastically update your look and pink is most definitely having a moment. Kelly Osbourne hits the trend on its head with her creamy pink lip and it’s so easy to achieve. Slick on a layer of MAC Lipstick in Pink Nouveau [£13.50] then blot with a tissue. Apply another layer and blot again – this will give a more matte effect and will make the colour long lasting. If wearing a bright lip always paint the colour on before doing your eye make-up or adding colour to cheeks, it will help you judge how much make-up you need to apply.
