What's in your holiday make-up bag?

We're well and truly immersed in the holiday season now, whether opting for the increasingly popular staycation or travelling to more (guaranteed) warmer climes, the team at Face Matters loves prepping for their getaways.   We obviously do try very hard not to overpack (!) with clothes, make-up and toiletries, but let's face it more often than not we come home with around half of our clothes unworn and all the make-up we think we'll wear when we go out for dinner, goes untouched! 

A great tip we picked up was to collect samples of product throughout the year =- per

So ladies, to help you pick and pack the real summer essentials in your make-up bag, we've selected our top can't-travel-without products….

Hair…as much as we love the mermaid tousled look, underneath you are tackling  mass of tangled locks.  In a recent feature on ‘the brushes you CAN use on wet hair’, The Daily Mail awarded (The Wet Brush) an impressive 5/5, due to its unrivalled knot-eliminating skills. ‘This brush has thin and flexible bristles designed to glide through any hair type and comb out tangles effortlessly and painlessly. It can be used on wet or dry hair and the bristles bend as you brush, then bounce back, eliminating breakage. - See more at: https://www.cultbeauty.co.uk/the-wet-brush  and from around £8.99 it's pretty affordable.

Skincare..well here we have to suggest our very own Face Matters Evening Elixir, All Day Spritz and 24/7 Balm all worth their suitcase space in gold…The Spritz is your perfect in-flight travel companion to refresh, moisten and revitalise, the 24/7 Balm is the absolute holiday essential; it'll soften hard heels, elbows, lips, perfect  treat for dry ends on holiday hair and if you've parched your skin in the sun (which obviously you shouldn't!) leave on overnight for a super-duper nourishing treatment.

Make-up - it's amazing how quickly our skin gets that holiday glow and the normal foundation, powders and bronzers seem to not quite be right.  So we'd suggest Laura Mercier's fail-safe Tinted Moisturiserperfect for all skin types and provides ideal protection from both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF 20. The sheer, lightweight moisturiser adds a hint of colour that can be used in place of foundation for a natural appearance and finish with a dusting of Hoola Bronzer from Benefit - well it is the UKs No1 selling bronzer and we LOVE it!

Fragrance….for us, Chanel's, summery fresh scents like Chance Eau Fraiche is just perfectA fresh.  The unexpected floral bursts with a lightness and zest as notes of citrus, Water Hyacinth and Jasmine Absolute are energized with woody notes of Amber of Patchouli and Fresh Vetiver….takes us straight to the Riviera….! 

And don't forget….if you buy 1 All Day Spritz and 1 Evening Elixir from the Face Matters range this summer you will get a stunning pair of Roberto Cavailli sunglasses to perch on your sun kissed nose and finish off your summer look.  Simply enter code Shades01 at the checkout when prompted.

Happy Holidays

Don't forget the sunblock.
