The Best Makeup For Your Summer Holiday!

Hey girls! Today’s post is a guest post from the lovely Caroline Elliott who works over at Red Apple Lipstick. Her super informative post will help you on what makeup to bring to your next holiday destination!


The summer months are one of the best times to go on summer holiday. Travelling is one of my passions because in my opinion it is so important to see as much of the world as possible to experience different things. What’s also important is sporting the best beauty products for the various climates. Who wouldn’t want to look fabulous on holiday?

The Bahamas  
The Bahamas is one of my favorite places. With some of the softest sand and clearest water, it’s honestly hard to beat. When you’re in a tropical location, it’s absolutely crucial to wear a lot of sunscreen and drink plenty of water so your skin will stay hydrated and protected. When you’re looking for a night on the town, however, it’s fun to incorporate bright lips and a bronzer to enhance your dewy glow. The Red Apple Lipstick in Sunkissed is an amazing shade of coral, which looks great on any and every skin tone and packs a punch without being overwhelming. It’s also super moisturizing and guess what, it’s healthy! 100% gluten, allergen and paraben free and it’s also vegan. I mean it’s named Sunkissed… I don’t think it could be any more perfect for this island getaway! I also love this Laura Geller Baked Body Frosting All Over Body Bronzer. Even though you gain a natural tan during the day, it’s always fun to enhance your glow by adding a little shimmer to your legs, arms, shoulders and décolleté. Can you stay stun-ning!
Aspen, Colorado  
Who doesn’t love a good day on the slopes followed by a little hot tub sesh? Aspen is worldly known for its amazing winter sports. If your cup of tea is a cabin and a hot chocolate, I’m sure you’ve thought about traveling here. Geographically this place is out of this world. Between the mountains that are full of beautiful evergreen trees and the adorable downtown area, this place is breathtaking. When you’re out in the snow, it’s imperative that you replenish your skin so it doesn’t dry out. This Red Apple Lipstick Rallye Lip Balm is the best lip balm I’ve ever used. This stuff is a power product: odorless, non-addictive, free of gluten, parabens and allergens and absolutely loaded with vitamin E. Your go-to product in any dramatically climactic place! To complement your shiny lips, apply a light pink blush, like the NARS blush in Gaeity that will enhance you natural flush from the workout you’re getting (whether it’s skiing or shopping) and will also reflect beautifully in the bright white snow.  

London, England 
If you ever wanted to leave your comfort zone in the beauty and fashion world, London is a great place to experiment. This fashion-forward city is a great opportunity to try out a super dramatic eye or lip – or both. I love the combination of a dark lip with a slight cat eye… talk about fierce! The stereotypical Londoner will probably rock the red lipstick like a champ, so stand out with a deep plum lipstick. Plum lipstick is so lovely and also makes your teeth look whiter (score!). Pair it with black eyeliner, like the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen and extend the line over your lashes about a pinky-width outside. You can either meet the line with your bottom lash line or just leave the top line – depending on how dramatic you want to go! 

So no matter where you’ll be this summer, make sure you have the best makeup and beauty products to help enhance your experience and your look. When you look good, you feel good, and it’s inevitable that you’ll have an awesome trip!
