Makeup must-haves for a city break

e.l.f. MUA Hanne’s makeup essentials for a city break holiday



Who doesn’t love a weekend away in beautiful city, site seeing and trying the local food? Well to do this of course you want to be looking super chic, I’m Hanne and I have just the products to create a simple, pretty look.



For the base, I couldn’t go without our Flawless Finish Foundation! It’s so light on the skin and leaves you looking beautifully natural with a lasting coverage. This foundation is build-able so if you fancy topping up ready for a fun night out, this will allow you to do so, without creating any streakiness or grey patches. We’ve also added a cheeky SPF 15 to allow you to get out in that sun, looking totally glamorous but protecting that skin!

We’re offering a fantastic High Definition Powder which is the perfect setting powder for your foundation. If like me you prefer a simple, natural look this powder is going to leave you with a glow. It also avoids any flashback in pictures for all you snap happy tourists! An absolute must have for your city breaks.

As we know in some of these beautiful cities it can get pretty humid and especially with all the walking and talking you can get the odd smudge of makeup here and there. To avoid panda eyes, stick with our Waterproof Eyeliner Pen. The application is so simple; no mess, just a simple flick of the pen with a waterproof base which is going to ensure you’ve got a cute lined lid for the whole day.

If we’re going simple on our makeup, we can go crazy with a bit of lipstick…..right? Cool Coral Mineral Lipstick is my favourite lipstick in our range!! Such a pretty summer colour which will match perfectly with a summer glow and also keeps that pout moisturised. What screams summer more than coral?

To keep your skin hydrated and looking fresh and funky, you must, must, MUST use Mist and Set, if i could marry it I would. You can spray this all over your face at any time you want, it not only hydrates and moisturises the skin but it also sets your makeup so you don’t have to worry about it sliding off throughout the day….a miracle is just a spray away ladies!
