Announcing our Beauty and the Beach winners

We asked beauty bloggers to come up with their best holiday inspired hair, nails and make-up to showcase in our fantastic Beauty and the Beach competition.

The looks chosen could be whatever the entrants felt most suitable for a holiday, whether that would be styles they would create for a day sunbathing on the beach or a night out at the hottest of clubs - the choice was theirs!

We had an amazing response to the competition with an incredibly high standard of entry, which meant the judges had a particularly difficult job when it came to the judging day.

There were four lucky winners, 3 category winners who all won £500 for creating either the best hair, nails or make-up looks and one overall winner who received £1000 for creating a great look for all three categories.

Thank you to everyone who entered the competition - the entries that we received were fantastic. Keep checking TravelSupermarket for more great competitions in the future.

Jodie was chosen as the winning make-up entry. Our judge Lauren felt that the look was natural enough for a day by the pool but with a pop of colour.
