Ibiza Beauty Staples

So I'm going to Ibiza tomorrow, woohoo! And for the past couple of days I have been frantically trying to pack everything that I think I need to take and these are the beauty essentials that I have picked out and will definitely be coming with me.

For this holidays' base I'm going to concentrate more on bronze and highlight rather than heavy foundation to give a subtle bronze and glow to my face and these two are my little team dream. The YSL Les Sahariennes Blur Bronzer has been an absolute staple for me since purchasing it. With it's creamy soft formula it's so easy to apply and is completely buildable. It's almost as if you can't go over the top with this stuff, with it's creamy application and powder finish the skin just looks airbrushed and free of imperfections. Along with the bronzer, there is a two sided applicator included, one end is a sponge pad and the other end being a brush. Honestly, I don't use the applicator, I use a buffing brush as I just find it easier to work with. I have been using this pretty much non stop since buying it. I absolutely love it as an alternative to just powder bronzers and plus it feels really light on the skin so my face won't feel caked in makeup. To highlight I love No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter, this is a stick form highligher so is really easy and precise to apply. It blends like a dream and gives a lovely illuminated look to the face when applied to the high points, perfect for those sunny and warm holiday evenings.

The Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil has a multitude of uses so I'll be taking this along to use on my body, hair, cuticles and face. It's super hydrating and not greasy in the slightest, plus the scent is so rich and well perfect for holidays.

Then I'm taking two, yes count them, two, facial SPF's. Don't ask my as they are pretty much identical in use but I couldn't decide between the two so they're both coming. The Clinique City Block Sheer SPF 25 and Sarah Chapman Skin Insurance SPF 30 are both making their way into my cosmetic bag.

Who doesn't like a bright lip for holibobs? Certainly not me so this MaxFactor Lipfinity Lipstick in shade 45 So Vivid is most definitely coming with me. It's the perfect pink for my skin tone and colouring and suits me right down to the ground. I'll most likely be wearing this every night.

Then lastly, it the Avene Thermal Water Facial Spray, this will be taking a firm position in not only my in flight handbag but also in my beach bag. It's so refreshing and is quite frankly my most favourite facial spray, ever. It will help me to cool down on the beach and also keep my skin hydrated when in flight.

So that's it, my Ibiza beauty staples. Any recommendations?
