Summer holiday makeup look

A couple of weeks ago we went to the Gold Coast for a mini family getaway. We've travelled quite a lot with our one and a half year old son, but I can honestly say this was probably the most relaxing holiday with him yet. Our little monster was so easy to handle, I don't know if it was the water, the weather or just the fact that we were away from our usual routine, but he was just a delight. Ok, there were some tough moments, but all up it was great. Yay, and here I was thinking that now that I'm a parent all relaxing holidays are over for us.

Anyway, I even managed to snap some pics of me for a FOTD post one afternoon while our little boy was napping. This was a look that I did on most days, smudged smokey brown eyes, peachy cheeks and lips.

Products used

  • Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation in Nude
  • Maybelline 24hr Super Stay powder in Sand
  • NARS blush/bronzer duo in Orgasm/Laguna
  • Lorac Pro Palette - Garnet (lid), Champagne (inner corner), Espresso (outer V), Black (smudged on top of liner.
  • Rimmel Brow Pencil in Black/Brown
  • The Makeup Store pencil eyeliner in Black
  • Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara in Black
  • Inglot lipstick in #104

By the way, would you believe this is all I took with me on holidays? I took 2 additional lip products (Savvy lipstick in San Fran and NYX lipgloss in Orange Soda), but I only used the gloss once and the lipstick none at all. I mainly just used the Inglot lippy from this post.

I'll leave you with a few iPhone pics from our holidays, some of which you might have already seen on my Instagram.

    Michaela // Where is my mind?

  5. Love the look! I mainly use my naked palette when away as it has all the colours i would need!

  6. You look radiant here! And OMG I love your eyes! So beautiful. I haven't ever really wanted that Lorac palette after reading a blogpost on it (and there are so many), but now I'm really convinced! Shall do some research.

    1. It took me a while to get it too, but I'm so glad I bought the Lorac as it's seriously one of the best neutral palettes out there! You won't regret it :)

  7. Such a beautiful look and it looks like an amazing holiday with your family! I haven't tried an Inglot lipstick before, I think I need to judging by these photos. I haven't really touched my Lorac palette, I feel guilty whenever I see a great look done with it and think 'I should really pull that out!'

  8. You look gorgeous and so chilled !

  9. You look stunning! I love your go to holiday look. I like using Peripera Smoothie eyeliners on holiday, they double as eyeshadows too and are waterproof, so fab for a beach holiday. Waterproof mascara, BB cream, and Etude House All Over Color in Raspberry Mousse Cake for lips and cheeks and I'm good to go :)
