For a blogger, I don’t actually have much of a makeup repertoire. And it took me a long time to accept that, in fact, there’s nothing wrong with that.
I stick to what I know, what I’m comfortable with, and like to feel like myself. I basically have two looks: a bright lip or glowy and tanned.
And there’s nothing I love more than a red lip.
It’s funny, I only started doing a red lip about 5 years ago, but since then, it has almost become my signature. I love how it can transform a simple look to something with a bit more punch in minutes. And now, with Peggy, I rely more and more on makeup that can help lift my look quickly and easily – and for £2.49, this ‘Crimson’ lipstick is it (no one notices those dark bags once your lips are the main attraction).
And moving onto my more everyday look.
This is basically the makeup I wear most days (albeit with a bit of extra bronzer on holiday) – primer to keep everything staying put and for extra ‘glow’, a good foundation that will stay all day (even in humidity), eyeliner and blusher. My whole routine takes about 15 minutes to do and helps me feel camera ready in a flash, all held together with some translucent powder (to help with sheen).
For me, the hero product of my holiday was the highlighter stick. It glides on so easily and can be as layered or as sheer as you like – I rub it along my cheekbones and love the glisten it creates – perfect for those balmy evenings over your moisturiser.
And the best bit? All the makeup is under £3. Yep, you read that right. And tried and tested over a month of my holiday, I’m definitely a convert.
