Must-have make up products for a weekend staycation

March 11, 2017


I love to take advantage of long weekends in the UAE. Just a hop skip away you can go enjoy the ridiculously awesome beaches of Ras Al Khamiah or go for an adventurous night out on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.


Because I am *naturally* a make up hoarder - I have an awesome short weekend make up holiday pouch which has enough to create three stunning looks!


Look 1: Beach Bum

Look 2: Phoenix Night

Look 3: The Morning After





Look 1: Beach Bum look

So while my kids and hubby play in the pool I like to use that time to take in some much needed R&R on a sun bed - so I keep it simple as less is more.

Look 2: Phoenix Nights

I like to keep things glamorous but simple again so for the evening I opt for a dark black smokey eye using three eye shadows. I know smokey is something most people believe = tonnes of product and racoon eyes!

However, this is definitely a fool-proof technique.

TIP: To be extra safe, do your eyes first.




Look 3: The Morning After

I am heading back home - But before that lets do lunch. So a bright lippy is a must!

 FYI: That's my real hair and not extensions. Look out for a post dedicated to create the perfect beach waves on holiday.
