Must-Have Winter Sun Minimal Kit

Sometimes we need to disconnect to reconnect... Taking the time to enjoy vacation means I spend less time thinking about beauty, but not necessarily less time enjoying it. 

Switching to lighter textures, heat-proof formulations and multitasking products that fit neatly into my luggage or beach bag. I adopt a less is more approach for hotter climates, building up light layers of product to give it staying power. 

My must-have minimal kit includes:

CONCEALER - I love The Face Pencil by Jones Road, with medium to light coverage they minimise redness and dark spots in a pencil format (so no chance of spilling). 

LIP SERUM BALM - When the weather is too hot for a full face of makeup, my Lip Serum Balms deliver just enough colour for effortless radiance. Formulated with skincare ingredients to leave your lips feeling as good as they look. They can be used on your cheeks too for a pop of multitasking colour.

MASCARA - I have two holiday favourites, Lancome Idole Waterproof Mascara and Benefit Bad Gal Bang (I love the mini for my bag), both provide volume, lift and separation for beautiful full lashes.

SPF - A must for every day, whether at your desk or a long overdue holiday. Apply or refresh regularly to all exposed areas of your skin. My favourites for not leaving a white cast on my skin is La Roche Posay Anthelios and Vichy Capital Soleil UV Age Daily SPF 50+

CLEANSERS - I love miniatures for ease of travel and always bring a variety of cleansers, whether removing SPF, waterproof makeup or just to take off the day in the evening look out for sample sized at counters or decant your favourites into small bottles or tubs.

Work with your skintone and the cosmetic effect that you want to achieve. We are all lucky that we have unique faces.. play up the features you love and play down those you don't.
