Holiday: Beauty Edition

A photo of myself online, yeah, I know…

My partner and I just came back from the most incredible holiday in Cyprus last week, and I thought I’d share a few photos and some of our favourite  beauty/grooming products.

Probably the most used product was Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray [Clarins is available from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.] just like all the other Clarins for/after sun products. I was picturing the most beautiful photos I’d take for this feature but, unfortunately, we’ve been too busy  enjoying our vacation so I did not have time to do everything that I’ve wanted.

Today I want  to show you three of my favourite  creamy highlighters…Highlighters BECCA Jouer BenefitPlease excuse the finger marks on the products,

I swear that I’ve tried to make them look decent before taking the photo

The first one – BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl is my personal favourite and the one that I use on myself all the time, it was recommended to me by Lisa Eldridge years ago, and I love it. It adds a beautiful cool-toned  glow to the face, without being shimmery. You can that luxe glow which you can see in top photo shoots. There are several ways you can use it, all the details here.

The second one is Benefit’s High Beam, and I have used half of it already actually. While BECCA is more subtle, this one gives more glow and has more defined pink undertones, but I still love and use it a lot.  I like the fact that
