Holiday Beauty Prep – from lash extensions to a full head of highlights

I actually think girls spend the same amount of money on their holiday prep then they actually do on the holiday! From lashes to highlights and manicures to waxes, I personally have to get it all before I even think about stepping foot onto a plane.

If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you will know I went to Ibiza for one of my bestest friends Hen Party’s. I’m actually back now from one of the best weekends of my life so I thought I’d share my holiday prep. I’ll share my Ibiza post at a later date!

Individual Eyelashes:

I love nothing more than having a full set of individual eyelash extensions, especially for holiday. It means you don’t have to worry about wearing mascara, so you don’t have to worry and black smudges under your eyes.

I also love that I can go underwater and do pretty much everything with them and they will still look good!

I know I’m going to a sunny country so why do I need a spray tan? Usually getting a spray tan before a holiday is not really my thing but as I am only out there for four days it doesn’t really give me much time to catch a real tan. I’m naturally ginger and fair skinned so tanning is hard for me.

I am also bridesmaid (yeah I know, it’s exciting) so I want to make sure I look my best and I feel so much better with a tan.


I’m a bit of a picker so whenever I’ve had gels I’ve literally just picked them off within a day or two so I’ve decided to just go with a polish. I love to match my nails and toes and as it is summer I thought – brighter the better.

Hair Removal:

I like to be smoother than a dolphin the majority of the time anyway – sometimes you have to have those awkward in between wax days, and sometimes in winter you leave it a little longer than you probably should.

I treated myself to a hot wax kit, so it means i can do it myself in the comfort of my own home.


Nothing like a full head of light blonde highlights and a good chop to get you ready for summer. I light my hair to be as light as possible, and then when I go away I tend to leave it to dry naturally so it kind of looks like I have beach hair.

HD Brows:
Brow game has to be strong – As I mentioned before I don’t really like wearing too much makeup on holiday so my last extensions, teamed with good brows, means that I can usually get away with a more natural look.

How do you prepare for a holiday? What treatments do you get done?

OFRA Eyebrow Gel is semi-permanent, waterproof and an absolute LIFESAVER.

Unfortunately I wasn’t blessed with naturally thick and dark brows, instead I was given bits of blonde fluff on my brow bone and a poor excuse for a brow. Continue reading
