My Make-up: 5 Nights In Paris

Saturday, 22 February 2014


Five nights on a city break means you're going to need reliable, versatile make-up as well as watching your case weight restrictions. On my trip to Paris I picked the best products for this, which met all my needs.

Lots of walking and long days mean you need a reliable base, I took Chanel Le Blanc. It illuminates your complexion, creates a soft focus finish and provides a tacky base to help your foundation last a bit longer. For foundation I picked Armani Luminous Silk - my absolutely favourite, you could say cult foundation. It looks perfect on the skin, nor matte or dewy but that perfect balance. It lasts a long time and photographs just beautifully. 

For evening when I wanted  to add a little something-something, I turned to the trusty Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder to add an undetectable sheen to my skin. Apply on the top of your cheek bones, middle of your forehead and on your cupids bow to help sculpt your face. For that bronzed look we all can't seem to live without, the YSL Bronzing Powder always hits the spot. It's completely matte, looking very natural with it's perfect tone of brown. To inject some colour to my complexion, I always turn to Laura Mercier. This Cream Cheek Colour in Sunrise is the perfect shade of coral, it's bright but brilliant.

For eyes I picked my favourite, Lancome Precious Cells Mascara. It lengthens, adds just the right amount of volume and creates a really lovely wide eyed look. I love this mascara beyond words. 

What would be your make-up picks on a city break?

  6. The Laura Mercier blush looks beautiful! I've had my eyes on a couple of their blushes and I might have to add this to my list.

  7. Oh wow you kept this so minimal but a perfect pick of products! I'd probably bring a bright lipstick in case I wanted to do a bold lip at night and you can always sheer it out with balm during the day.
