Theme Park Makeup Must Haves!

“Paris is always a good idea” – Audrey Hepburn 

I was lucky enough to spend the second week of August at Disneyland Paris (my absolute favourite place in the world!) If you’re reading this from France, or you happened to be in France this month, you’ll know that it was so hot! But of course I didn’t go without my stash of makeup goodies and beauty products, and making sure those goodies stayed in place all day under the heat was something I made a priority during my holiday. 

This inspired me to write this blog post, because although the summer is coming to a close, I know a lot of you would have (or are yet to go on) you’re holiday or summer days out, and if you’re anything like me, you want assurance that you’re makeup will stay on all day no matter what the weather maybe doing! I was pretty much wearing makeup all day, every day and I was pretty impressed with the staying power of my makeup, so I wanted to show you guys everything I brought along with me!

Products that I took to Paris with me: 

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation: This is a relatively new foundation that I’ve been trying out, as I wanted to try something new and something that would last on my skin all day. I have extremely oily skin that tends to look a bit sweaty in the hot weather, so this foundation worked miracles on me during my trip, staying in place all day! By the end of the day my skin barely needed any touching up and left a nice glow to the skin (not oily in the slightest!) one girl who even worked at the park complimented my foundation and asked me what I was wearing! I have previously written a full length blog post on my first impressions of this foundation and will be writing a follow up on my thoughts once I’ve finished the bottle, so if you want to have a read of my first impressions feel free to do so. 

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer: If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now you’ll know that the Mac Pro Longwear Concealer is my holy grail concealer and I can’t see myself using another concealer for a very long time! So naturally I had to bring this along with me. Like the Nars foundation it didn’t move under the heat and kept my complexion looking completely flawless. The creamy application also meant that if I was in a rush to go anywhere I could blend this in quite quickly! 

 Rimmel Stay Matte Powder: If you’ve got normal to oily skin I would definitely recommend setting your makeup with this setting powder. It’s not cakey and leaves a matte, translucent and almost invisible finish on the skin. It doesn’t add any colour to your already applied foundation/concealer and it meant that I only really needed to touch up a few times during the day.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray: Setting sprays have become a must for me recently, mainly because they really are a life saver! There’s so many different setting sprays out there and I want to try them all, but recently I’ve been loving my trusty Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. It does what it says on the bottle, it sets the makeup after application, making it last all day (even under the summer heat!) Pairing this with my Nars foundation it’s a match made in heaven. I also carried this around Disneyland in my bag so I could sprtiz this throughout the day whenever I needed a little touch up. 

Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax Serum: My hair can become quite intolerant under the heat, and so I wanted a serum that would stop it from getting so frizzy and clean up any unruly hairs. This serum has been a massive favourite of mine for years now, so naturally I had to pack this stuff! It completely smoothes out my hair and helps to keep the style of it in place all day. If you’ve got frizzy or rebellious hair it’s definitely worth a try! 

So those were a couple of my theme park must haves that I brought along with me to Disneyland Paris (there was so many more!) I had an amazing time and I’m definitely having withdrawal symptoms! If you enjoyed this post please let me know, and let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and what you think of them! 

Thanks for reading!
