My Holiday Makeup and Tiny Shorts!

a model recommends beauty blog

I pretty much stuck to the same makeup look every night that I was away on holiday – boring, I know, but I just couldn’t be bothered to play around. I had only taken a few key items away with me, anyway, and had done on purpose so that I couldn’t be tempted to do any work. I still ended up filming this style and makeup video though…I was feeling the effects of work-withdrawal by this stage!

I haven’t any lipstick left on in the above photograph – it was taken post-dinner and post-red-wine so my lips are also a bit stained. Bad model! Oh well. You can see the lovely Aerin lipstick going on if you watch the video, and also see the By Terry Cover Expert foundation in action. Still one of my absolute hero products of all time, forever and ever Amen.

I have a sickening feeling that my Hollister shorts in this video are just a little too short. You know when you’re on hols and you wear things that are a bit…how can I put it? Out of the ordinary? That’s how I feel about my shorts. I’d be more comfortable if they had some more fabric around the gusset area and about two more inches length, but there we go. What happens in Miami stays in Miami, unless you make a video and broadcast it to the world.

All of the product information is beneath the video pane, if the video pane decides to even make an appearance. If it doesn’t, you can watch it by clicking here.
