I wanted to share with you guys a few special photos from my holiday and to tell you a little about where I went, what I got up to and my holiday beauty must haves. I had always wanted to go to Ibiza so I booked a week with my mum and her friend. We actually had a week of rain (only this could happen to me!) so it meant lots of free time in my hotel room getting ready for our evening meals with the products I had packed.


I love getting ready when I’m on holiday but I do have to change my usual makeup routine with less makeup and stick to a few cult staples of mine. Besides cramming as many minis as I can in my case, I always turn to makeup palettes which allow me to change my makeup up each night without having to pack my whole collection. The first palette I took was my Max Factor Masterpiece nude palette. There are 3 in the range, my favourite is the ‘golden nudes’ because it’s filled with natural browns and the option to make things a little smokier! My mum loves the ‘rose nudes’ because it has more pink in it and my sister loves ‘cappucino nudes’ because it’s great for darker more dramatic eyes! The pigmentation on these are great, and you get 8 shades for £14.99. I wore this most nights as there’s a shade for pretty much whatever you’re wearing.


The second palette I took was the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette, perfect for a bit of radiance on holiday. I’d had my eye on this since it came out and a friend of mine bought me it as a surprise! First of all the colour payoff is incredible. I don’t own too much Charlotte Tilbury but the more I try the more I realise just how worth the money it is. This palette has a 2 blushers, a bronzer, highlighter and 3 eye primers and colour so it’s perfect for when you’re on the go.


I stayed in a yoga retreat just a few miles out of Ibiza town, and then headed to stay near the Old Castle for the last few days. The food was amazing, and my top tip if you visit would be to hire a car so you can find all the beautiful beaches and places to eat!


I can’t be without a mascara on holiday and this year I packed my Max Factor Masterpiece Max. Some of you guys will know I pretty much cleared the drugstores out of the Max Factor Masterpiece Transform (in brown) in my TalkBeckyTalk YouTube videos so it’s time for a new one for me! The wand on this is pretty cool. I love the end of it because you can pack loads of the product on your lashes and then the wand helps to separate and build up to 400% volume perfect for some serious lashes! I don’t get that horrible dropdown with Max Factor mascaras and it’s even more important for me when I’m in the heat!

I also packed the Clarins Eye Makeup Double Fix which claims to make your favourite mascaras and eyebrow products waterproof. I swam in this and it did run a little but I have to say it kept my mascara on all day without running and did last against the rain and sweat!


To complete the eyes, I packed my Max Factor Masterpiece Long Wear Eyeliner. This is a really great eyeliner if you want a product that can create a number of looks. I used the edge on holiday for a really subtle liner which stayed on all night (it’s meant to stay for 12 hours). If you use the thick side it creates a really high impact look. I’ve actually done a video showing you how to create that smoky “cat eyes” look using the Max Factor mascara, eyeshadow and liner I’ve just talked about if you click here. My sister wears this look in the evenings on holiday and it’s perfect for me when I’m at home going out. Go say hi under the video!

Finally, apart from a box of good lip balms, for me holidays are all about the hair! So I live off dry shampoo because it gets so tangled and greasy! My two favourites are the Pantene Pro V Instant Refresh and the COLab Sheer and Invisible. I love them because they are two of the few dry shampoos that actually make your hair look good again but don’t feel really gritty and dusty which puts a lot of people off using them. I can’t decide which I prefer but they are both really affordable and I get through so much that I always take two cans away with me!

I’m actually giving away three of the Max Factor eyeshadow palettes so you have something for your holidays too! Comment below telling me which one is your favourite and why – cappuccino nudes, pink nudes or golden nudes.


Here’s to some sunshine, even in the rain, it felt so wonderful and relaxing to be away! On the last night we sat and watched the sun go down, it was so magical.

  1. The pink nudes palette is my favorite because the colors will complement my eyes. Love you Becky!!!!!!

  2. My favourite palette is the cappuccino nudes because it’s got a few nudes and then a few golden and darker browns, which I bet would look awesome if you blended them.
    I often wear golden colours on my eyes but I also love those light pink shades of the rose nudes palette.

  3. Golden nudes is by far my favourite pallete featured! Loving that white dress, you look so amazing! X

  4. Ah wow! Sounds like you had a good time. You look absolutely lovely! I’ll be keeping my eye on those products they sound great!

  5. wow, I hope you had fun on your vacation and I love the products you used while you were there!

  6. Hi becky I love your blogs and vlogs xxx

  7. Boo! Too bad it was raining during most of your trip! It happened to me a few times too and it’s one of the worst feelings ever when you wish for a vacation and it’s just ruined by rain… Still, you took amazing pictures, you look stunning :)

    Hmm, my pick for the MaxFactor palette is the pink nudes! Here where I live it’s impossible to fink pink-toned eyeshadows, which happen to be my favorite eyeshadow colors.

  8. Looks like you had a nice holiday, lovely photos, and was good to know the essentials you like to take makeup wise.
    I love the golden nudes purely because for me it’s a good every day one for work and also you can easily make it a nice evening one too with a lovely smokey eye.
    Thanks for sharing this and also thank you for the giveaway. Xx
    P.s please send sunshine!!! It’s stormy and cold here in Adelaide Australia (don’t like winter)

  9. Hi this blog post is so useful. Normally I pack my entire make up. I love the cappucino nudes palette because I think it will look perfect with my brown eyes. Both matte and shimmer shades are perfect for any look for day and night.

  10. I’m glad you had a great time despite the weather! The golden nudes palette looks so dreamy, there are just so many possible looks to make with it! And I love how they each have that UD naked palette vibe, they’re the perfect dupes really! xx

  11. Cappuccino nudes is my face as I love a natural smoky eye. Xx

  12. I’ve never really tried any max factor make up but these look so stunning, and so do you! I have to agree with you golden nudes is my favourite as theose kind of colours are always my go to! Hope you had a lovely holiday despite the rain!! x
