I chatted to top makeup artist Daniel Sandler about how to increase the staying power of makeup when you’re on holiday, exclusively for ‘Attempts At A Stylish Life’. This is the low down…
For skin… Avoid heavy moisturisers that tend to make you look sweaty, apply either a moisturising gel or light lotion to nourish skin and keep shine at bay. As an alternative to foundation, try my Retexturising Primer for a light, oil-free finish, this contains and SPF and will leave skin looking smooth and matte.
For eyes… Opt for Waterproof formulas of eye make-up. Cream to Powder shadows will prevent nasty creasing on lids, and Waterproof eye liners and mascara will keep panda eyes at bay.
For lips… Lip products tend to melt or go runny in the heat, so pop them in the fridge and only take them out when you need to apply or are going out for the evening. On the beach, keep lips hydrated with coloured lip balm rather than high pigment lipstick. Try Burt’s Bees twist stick balm with a decent SPF to keep your lovely lips from burning!

I always dab on SPF on my lips in the sun, and let it sink in, before applying any lipcolour. Better to be safe than sorry!
