Vacations are great, but the packing process can be a headache! Before you head out make sure you have all your beauty needs on hand to get through your trip. Here are 10 beauty essentials you’ll need for the perfect vacation.
Whether you’re away four days or a month, you’ll want makeup options! Instead of carrying a million mini pots, bring an eyeshadow palette with at least six shades. Opt for a neutral palette if you want to keep your looks safe or carry an array of vivid colors if vacation is your time to experiment!
Committed to serving a full face every day of your trip? Get yourself a complete makeup palette. In addition to several eye shadow shades these compact cases carry everything you need for cheeks, lips, lids and lashes!
Not only are rollerballs TSA friendly but they fit perfectly in your clutch, unlike a full -sized bottle of perfume. Bring three if you prefer to have options or opt for sample sizes that can be thrown away as you use them up.
Products that multi-task are key when going on vacay, and when it comes to makeup you can’t beat the Beauty Blender. This egg-shaped makeup applicator can be used to apply primers, foundations, and any other face product you desire. Go for the new Blender that comes with the Blender Cleanser Solid so you won’t have to worry about carrying an extra cleanser as well.
If you’re really looking to downsize the amount of items you pack, bring a small tube of baby powder. Not only does baby powder prevent chaffing but this miracle product triples as a deodorant or dry shampoo when necessary.
Nude Nail Polish
If your trip is particularly long you’ll probably end up refreshing your manicure at least once. Pack nude polish so that chips go unnoticed but you can still touch up mid-trip as necessary.
Makeup Setting Spray
You’ll probably spend long periods of time outside your lodging, and may not be able to touch up your makeup frequently. Keep your look fresh for as long as 12 hours with a makeup setting spray.
Maybe you’re too tired for soap and water, or restarting a makeup application gone wrong – either way at some point you’ll need a quick and efficient way to clean your face. Bonus – you can also use these after waking up from an overnight trip or as a substitute for hand sanitizer.
Skin moisturizer, cuticle softener, makeup remover, makeup brush cleanser – there isn’t much coconut oil can’t do for you. Pack a 3 oz. bottle to help with any impromptu beauty needs that may arise during your trip.
You probably won’t keep up your entire routine on vacation, but exfoliating is key. Even if you don’t have a ton of down time, bring along an exfoliant and take a few minutes every few days to scrub off dead skin cells for smoother skin.
