"The only stuff I used": 5 makeup products Zoë Foster-Blake wore on holiday.

We know, we know

We've just posted a whole article on Zoë Foster-Blake's holiday wardrobe, and now we're talking about the makeup products she packed.

Obviously we don't *just* write about Zoë Foster-Blake and her fabulous holiday, you guys. Come on. We also write about her love life with Hamish Blake and how she runs her business.

But in all seriousness, we couldn't not talk about her most useful holiday makeup recommendations, could we? Goodness. Would be silly not to. Borderline irresponsible.

Because if you're anything like us, when you're packing makeup for a holiday, things can get a little weird. You spend a ludicrous amount of hours fretting about what to take, before finally deciding on 'the essentials' - such as a small pot of glitter (?), purple blush (??), and an eyeshadow palette you've never used (???). You know, JUST IN CASE.

And since everyone is apparently in Europe right now, it seems like a very good idea to look at what kind of makeup a seasoned beauty expert like Zoë actually wears and recommends.

So, a little bit of quiet please. A bit of hush at the back.

Below, we've broken down the exact five makeup products Zoë Foster-Blake recommends for travelling.

Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint, $72.

The first cab off the rank is this lightweight coverage - Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint Serum. And honestly, it makes perfect sense why ZFB rates it for travel. 

It's dewy. Hydrating. So easy to wear. It's one of those your-skin-but-better formulas that you can slap on your face and go - which is everything you want from your holiday makeup.

Zoë writes, "Sure this smells like sheep innards but the glow and the texture is hard to top for sheer coverage and a dewy, 'TikTok-Influencer-in-golden-hour, finish.' The hype is real."

Ooft. Sheep innards have never sounded so good.

So, if you're looking for a good option for coverage when you're away but don't want to fart around with heavy foundation - try this!

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow, $60.

For cheeks, Zoë wore Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow in the shade 'Colour of Passion' - a deep berry colour that she said works magic alongside her natural skin tone.

She shared on Instagram Stories, "This lil Charlotte Tilbury cheek and lip compact in a plum-burgundy shade, because it was my mirror on the go, and I love a wine-coloured cheek when you're wearing bronzer or when all your freckles/pigmentation comes through."

Tarte Shape Tape Ultra Creamy Concealer, $44.

Tarte Shape Tape is one of those cult products everyone's always yelling about online, but if you're a lass with dry skin, the finish can sometimes be... not idealIt can be creasy. Throw a cakey patch or two.

But did you know they have a really creamy hydrating version? Because they do! 

"Shape Tape was always too dry and creasy for me but this version is excellent - brightening and creamy," Zoë writes.

"This Zoeva concealer brush is new to me (was a finger or beauty blender girl) and I will never go back. Perfect, perfect, perfect."

Poni Cosmetics The White Knight Mascara, $32.

If you haven't heard of the Poni Cosmetics White Knight Mascara, please say hello - because word on the street (ZFB's Instagram) is that it's probably the best tubular mascara getting around. And everyone knows tubular mascaras are MADE for holidays, right?

"Tubular mascara for swims with no panda eyes. This one still has the best volume out of any I've tried. (Tubular mascaras are not known for volume; they're shit at it," said Zoë.

"What they ARE good at is being semi-waterproof, and being removed with warm water, not remover, making them ideal for warm weather holidays and a complete lack of panda eyes in general."

1000 Hour Eyebrow Mascara, $11.99.

Zoë is a BIG fan of this brow mascara. Which is very helpful, really - because good brow products can be hard to find. Also, bonus points because this one is 12 bucks.

"Bought this brow mascara at the chemist the day we left and it was an all-star," she writes on Instagram.

"I didn't use its brush - coloured brow mascaras are rife with mess and danger - I used [an] angled brow brush to air stroke it in, then set it with a clear brow gel. And discovered it lasted for 48 hours! Even through showers and swims. MVP!"

Forty. Eight. Hours.

"I use 1000 hour brow dye, also. Always in brown-black as it doesn't throw any red," she added.

In fact, if you're looking for how not to f**k up your brows - Zoë also showed us how to nail DIY brow tinting and colouring.

So, there you have it! Add a slick of lip gloss and you're ready for a Bellini and a swim!
