Femme Boulevard Goes on a Vacation

For this month the girls of Femme Boulevard decided on Vacation being the theme for our makeup look. We could do any type of vacation look, summer, winter, spring but I decided to do summer. Why? It's winter here in Australia, all the more reason for me to dream of warmer weather. Plus we've just booked a trip to the beautiful tropical island of Vanuatu in a couple of months time so I'm already in holiday mood. Oh and this post is actually meant to be the June FB, but we're a week late due to life getting in the way.

The look I'm showing today is more the type of look I'd go for if I was going out to a nice lunch date while away on a summer holiday. Because my usual daytime face while on vacation is this.

Yep, sunnies, hat, minimal makeup.

Vacation makeup for me is always about glowing skin, bronzed cheeks, golds and browns on eyes and orange or coral on the lips. When doing my eyes I do a fairly smudged liner look as a precise line just looks out of place on holiday don't you think? When I did this look I had a cold so I don't think I did the look justice,  I think I look tired and definitely like I should be in bed and not playing with makeup! But never mind, you get the gist!

Here's the list of products used:
  • MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC25 - I've almost ran out of this, might repurchase. 
  • Maybelline 24 HR Superstay powder in Sand. 
  • NARS Orgasm Blush and Laguna Bronzer combo - perfect colours for summer. 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Dark Brown
  • Beauty Cottage Gorgeous Eyeshadow Palette - reviewed HERE.
  • Revlon Custom Eyes mascara in Black
  • The Make Up Store soft shadow liner in Kohl
  • Dose of Colors Lipstick in Play Date - reviewed HERE

Don't forget to check out what the other ladies of Femme Boulevard came up with for their vacation look.

  1. Pretty! I wouldn't know what to do for a lunch date if I'm on vacation. Hats, sunnies and sunscreen only probably. LOL!

  2. If you hadn't mentioned you have a cold i definitely wouldn't have known- This look is so beautiful, the brown cream-sheen eye + gold-pink flush on cheek + juicy watermelon lip = Summer Perfection

    On another note, Do you recommend the Dose lipsticks? with international postage in mind, dupa-bility (if thats a word lol) etc

    1. I definitely recommend these Dose lipsticks, they're probably on par with MAC creme sheen lippies. In fact they're probably a bit more pigmented than those. Oh and as for dupability (totally a word! LOL), the 2 Dose lippies I own I haven't found dupes for, so I'd say they're not dupable. And into postage was around $9 from memory. Not too bad :)

  3. Oh I want a vacation so badly! Love this look - I tend to crave wearing pink glosses whenever I'm away on holiday!

  4. What a lovely look! Must really look into that gorgeous lip colour, it's so pretty!

  5. You look perfectly sunny and well done for pulling a look together despite feeling unwell still! *smooch* Actually, it makes sense that a holiday-ish look works really well to camouflage ickiness, or is that just your awesome skills making everything look great? :P

  6. I love that lippie on you, Lilit! Though you always look good with a bright lip! x

  7. i love the pictures and cute make-up girly.
