I don´t know about you, but I always have big plans for my upcoming summer holiday. Read at least three new books, exercise a lot, sleep ten hours a day and take time to experiment with makeup.
Because, let´s face it: The creativity I do develop at 6 am right before work is only directed towards developing the skill to brush my teeth half asleep without falling over. Adventurous and exotic makeup looks do take the back seat.
But, truth be told, despite packing half a suitcase full of products I don´t really spend much time on my makeup anyway. I prefer to invest my free time into people watching from a café while eating a croissant. Or two.
And in an attempt to pack streamlined (I will have a video up on what I bring so you can have a good laugh. Streamlined, ha!) I sat down and decided beforehand which look I wanted to give a go this time.
Beachy, glowy, bronzed. Out of my matte base comfort zone. But hey, it is a beach holiday after all!
As always I recorded my attempts on camera for you to follow along. Or maybe scream at the screen: No, don´t do that! You look ridiculous! The video can of course be judged best if watched on You Tube and in HD.

Now I am well aware that with any makeup looks planned ahead of time, chances are that I arrive at my destination and suddenly decide that I´d rather go barefaced than looking like this, fickle creature that I am.
But for the moment I am pretty happy with how it turned out. What do you think?
