Femme Boulevard Goes On Vacation

This month, we decided to show you vacation looks. What makeup would I wear during a vacation? I just came back from Hong Kong recently and it was really hot there. So, I shall share with you REALISTICALLY what I did. For realz. I was out and about the whole time, mostly in the sun, hence there was bound to be sweat and grime. I was hardly in air conditioned places, and it is IMPOSSIBLE for makeup NOT to melt in 33 Celcius hot and humid weather. Even at night, we’d be walking so much, it’s hard not to sweat. So, for that type of vacation, my staples are a hat, sunscreen, sunnies and wet wipes.




I got that hat from Disneyland and the visorย blocks UV rays. SO COOL!! Screw fashionable hats. I don’t want to be fried after the vacation. It is such a crowded country that no one would bother to look at me and hey, I’m not from there so nobody even knows me! Sunglasses are a must so I don’t have to squint my eyes the whole day and sunscreen. The one I have is a generic one which is very affordable. I lose things when I travel, and I’d hate to lose or break a Gucci or a Tom Ford pair of glasses. For me, I drown myself in sunscreen and for this trip,ย I have the Biore makeup wipe with me so I could clean my face before reapplying sunscreen nearly every 3 hours.

For a day I know there won’t be much outdoor activities, I’d still keep my makeup light. BB Cream as my base, brows to frame my face, liner, mascara and a light lip colour. It is exactly the look I did for my most recent Sunday Stash Shopping. It is hassle free, natural but defined. I have been very boring with my makeup lately, not experimenting much and keeping everything to a minimum. It’s also the only look that came to my head for this post, because I’m boring like that ๐Ÿ˜›




I’m sure my fellow Femmes will have better ideas on makeup looks. It’s just that for me, I can’t be bothered much with makeup when I’m travelling to hot humidย places. It’s a different thing when I go some place cooler though ๐Ÿ™‚ What about you?

Do check out what Joey, Kateย (these 2 beauties unfortunately can’t join us this round)ย Lilit and Teri have prepared for you!ย Until next time…

  • I like it! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Really, with a hat and sunnies, you can’t bother with much makeup. It is just not practical. For some reason, minimal makeup looks prettier with these accessories, too.
    Kudos to you for reapplying sunscreen every 3 hours, which is another thing you can’t do if you’re covered with thick makeup.

    • Lily

      I’m very particular with sunscreen, Lena. I encouraged my mom and both Chloe and Ashlyn to do it too. I know my mom’s happy she listened ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hey Lily, I actually really like your holiday look! It’s very simple but it makes you look put-together!

    • Lily

      Thanks Sunny. It’s the only way for me. I like to travel light too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Anusha Puri

    you look adorable..sweet..loved it

    • Lily

      Thanks Anusha ๐Ÿ™‚

  • You look good, Lily! Very fresh and happy ๐Ÿ™‚ And I agree – if I’m going to be somewhere hot, it’s a hat and glasses and tons of sunscreen. And ideally, foolproof/budge-proof eyeliner!

    • Lily

      Oh yeah, a waterproof, budge proof eyeliner for sure. I used to like one from Kate, but it stains my lids so I stayed away. I was recommended K-palette and Dolly Wink but I haven’t tried them yet.

  • You look lovely! I’m the same way Lily when I travel. When I was younger I’d try to wear makeup when I was out all day in the sun and melt, but now I don’t bother. I will put on brows and mascara though for a bit of definition! But that’s it.

    • Lily

      I put on my BB cream the first day, and when I got back to the hotel, ALL traces of makeup was gone. I was left with dirt on my face. HAHAHAHA!

  • Icaria

    I love it Lily! On hot/humid days less is better imo and this look is super fresh and vacationy!

    • Lily

      I agree. Less is more!

  • Aw Lily, I’m so in love with your dimples, they make you even cuter! <3
    When I'm at a really humid place I tend to skip the whole make-up thing honestly, I hate that feeling of a layer when it's so sweaty, lol!

    I really love your look, I think it would be pretty much the same thing for me in humid places ^^. And that hat is actually really cool!

    • Lily

      That hat is awesome. I can pull it down and it’d protect my face! Oh, makeup + sweat + humidity? YUCKS!

  • I have to agree with @BellaChique:disqus about the dimples! ๐Ÿ˜€ I also carry wipes when I go to the beach or pool so I can wipe off before reapplying. They’re also awesome for getting sunscreen and sand off the hands. I love the beach but I hate that grimy feeling sunscreen + sand create on my hands. I love the visor. I would rock that sans shame anywheres!

    • Lily

      Aaw, I thank my mom for the dimples, and my daughters thank me for theirs. LOL!
      I’ve been wearing that visor everywhere lately. It’s been crazy hot, and the sun actually hurts my skin, literally! So glad I bought 2 of these ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jenny W

    I love that visor! I wish I could get away with wearing one. I think your vacation look is about the same as mine- peachy and minimal

    • Lily

      I think minimal is the best ๐Ÿ™‚

  • So pretty Lily. I like the natural look with flick-y eyeliner ๐Ÿ™‚ Your smile is captivating!

    • Lily

      Aaw, thank you so much Shari!

  • You look so fresh and young in this minimal look LOL, did you score some kid-rate tickets for yourself, missy? ๐Ÿ˜› I wonder if drawing on dimples would help me cheat that no-makeup thing….

    • Lily

      Hahaha you flatter me! I think it’s an Asian thing though. We look young until we’re about 45 then we suddenly look much older than we are. HAHAHAHA! And YES! I’d love to see a drawn on dimple!!!

  • Liz

    Seriously – you’ve never looked better! Apparently visors are sort of becoming a thing here. SORT OF. I always think of Asian ladies in association with them but they’re nice because they don’t flatten your hair. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lily

      Thanks Liz. I like this because I can pull it down to cover my face. My mom called me crazy because I had SPF50 on, huge sunnies AND this visor pulled down. LOL!
