My Humidity-Proof Vacay Makeup Look - Bali Edition

Holidays are the best, aren't they? I just got back from a week in Bali and it was just so... relaxing. It was actually my first 'lounging by the pool' kind of holiday, Paul and I usually do city breaks and end up walking 50kms a day trying to see every last gallery, museum and historic ruin we possibly can before passing out in the hotel, so this was a refreshing change for me! Cocktails, massages, dips in the pool resulting in neon green hair - it was a blast.

I exercised great restraint while packing my makeup as I was determined not to make my usual mistake of bringing half my collection 'just in case', and I think I actually used every item I brought with me, a miracle for which I should be canonised.

Bali is in Indonesia, which has a very warm and humid tropical climate so makeup needs to be adapted to suit. Also, the whole vibe of the place is so relaxed that I felt like taking my makeup down a notch and keeping it low maintenance. Essentials for the trip included a bronzing mist called 'Tea to Tan' from Sunday Reilly, setting spray in the form of L'Oreal's Infallible Fixing Mist, and MAC's Relentlessly Red Lipstick, a matte coral-red that added effortlessly added a tropical pop to my face.
