Celebrity Make-up Artist Reveals How To Achieve Love Island-style Sweat-proof Make-up And Super Smooth Hair On Holiday


ASIDE from the fun-filled love island-antics we’ve seen on our screens so far, our attention has been on something else…the girls’ make-up.

So how do they stay looking so fabulous?

Just one week in and the girls have already been giving us MAJOR holiday beauty inspo.

We can’t help but feel curious as to how they achieve their fresh, smudge-free makeup and those super smooth tresses when working with those hotter climates.

We asked celebrity Makeup Artist and Tanner to the stars Olivia Todd to spill the beans.

Here are her top tips for looking flawless in the heat.

Less is More

The “less is more” mindset is the essential vibe for holiday.

You want to let your skin breathe, whilst maintaining that gorgeous golden goddess look.

The love island girls have definitely been letting their natural beauty show this last week.

By Terry

My absolute favourite go-to is Cellular Rose Brightening CC Serum from BY TERRY.

Cellularose Brightening CC Serum, £61 from Space NK – buy now

This is a radiance elixir that is lightweight but still gives you an all over even colour, it gets rid of dark spots, hydrates and brightens the complexion by removing any fine lines.

Plus, it has an amazing floral scent!

The result: nothing short of summer glow perfection.

To mattify the t-section and reduce open pores, the Hyaluronic Hydra Powder from BY TERRY works wonders. For soft and supple kissable lips I love EVE LOM KISS MIX. Use on it’s own for day or over a red lippy at night for a seductive and sultry look like Megan.

Medieval by Lipstick Queen is a good choice, it’s a semi sheer formula that you can layer up for buildable vibrancy and colour.

Bronze is Beautiful

For a summer-kissed finish, sweep bronzer onto your cheekbones, shoulders and decolletage and blend slightly into the crease of your eyes, this will really set your eyes ablaze.

Laura has been sporting this look in the evenings and the bronze hue really does look beautiful on her blue eyes.

Nars NARS Laguna is an oldie but a goodie Bronzing powder – Laguna, £30 from Space NK  – buy now 

Pick your shade, a favourite of mine is NARS Bronzing Powder in shade Laguna.

This shade suits most, but when on holiday there is always room to be a little bolder. For a deeper shade of bronze opt for Casino.

Or, for a quick glow to go, the James Reed Enhance Sculpting Duo beautifully defines your features and enhances the look of tanned skin.

I also love to add some blush to the mix, Laguna by NARS is gorgeous.  

After all, it’s not every day you’re on a Mediterranean island.

Forget Frizz

The girls have been giving us holiday hair envy from sexy, beach-tousled mermaid waves to super sleek and smooth.

It’s no news that a day in the sun can wreak havoc with your hair, but this is where I can come to the rescue.

Win the battle against frizz and protect your hair with a dehumidifier spray.

My favourite is the Lee Stafford Poker Straight Dehumidifier.

This is a light and gentle solution, with smoothing effects that will keep your locks perfectly in place.

Boots Lee Stafford products have a cult following for a reason Lee Stafford Poker Straight Dehumidifier, £2.19 from Boots – buy now 

Boots Hydrate your dry ends with cactus-y goodness Lee Stafford Dazzle Drops, £8.49 from Boots – buy now 

Think calm without the storm.

For those who have bleached hair that is prone to dryness, give your hair a real treat with Dazzle Drops by Lee Stafford.

This is a powerful hit of hydration that your hair will just love.

It’s a weightless serum that transforms parched hair to perfect with just a couple of drops.

Cactus Extract, Wild Lime and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil  – the ultimate holiday cocktail.  

Amp Up Those Lashes

Full lashes like Dani Dyer basically do the flirting for you.

Want to rock that island glam like Dani?

Really focus your attention on the eyes and even more so on your eyelashes.

For Dani’s full lash effect I suggest starting by adding a wade of waterproof mascara, my choice is Waterproof Sport Mascara by Eyeko.

Next, apply Ardell Demi Wispies as close to your natural lash line as possible.

I love these for creating voluminous and luscious lashes without looking too in-your-face false.

The lash lengths vary, giving that extra flutteriness.

Boots Ardell Demi Wispies are a beauty blogger cult favourite Ardell Demi Wispies False Eyelashes, £5.49 from Boots – buy now

DUO 2-in-1 Striplash Adhesive is by far the best glue I’ve come across and lasts all day long.

But if you’ve had a dip in the pool or been soaking up those rays, you can always take a leaf out of Dani’s book and blast them with a small hairdryer on a cool setting, to give them that added staying power.  

Pack Travel Sized

Opt for travel sized minis of your favourite go-to products to keep in your evening bag and top up throughout the evening if necessary.
