With many businesses, beaches, and destinations opening back up, it’s time to get out and enjoy the rest of summer! There’s still time for vacations and celebrations to soak up the sun after being cooped up for so long. Since we haven’t left the house in a while, you may be forgetting those beauty essentials needed while traveling. We have some tips and recommendations for what to pack when traveling this summer.
We love the ease and convenience of color street nail strips this summer! With no dry time or smudging they can be done on a plane, train, by the pool or even at the beach!
To keep your hairstyle fresh from day to night with the ultimate secret weapon: dry shampoo. Our stylists love Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo because it smells amazing and adds just the right amount of volume to your locks! There are two versions for light and dark hair so you never have to worry about any chalky residue. Refresh your style before heading out for the night with a quick spray of dry shampoo!
Tinted Moisturizer with SPF
Protect your skin from harsh UV rays with a product that can cover all bases. Choose a tinted moisturizer with SPF and ditch the heavy foundations and concealers to let your skin breathe! A tinted moisturizer will provide enough coverage while the SPF will keep your skin protected from any harsh rays while you’re sunbathing. For more coverage, opt for a BB or CC cream to suit your skin type. We love IT Cosmetics CC cream with color correcting and 50+ SPF to keep you looking flawless and protected from the sun.
A Great Sleep Mask
Airplane travel can be an absolute nightmare if you can’t get some shut eye. Also consider your destination and how your sleep schedule may get interrupted. Find a great eye mask to stay on track and avoid irritation with a quality product. We always go for the Slip Silk Sleep Mask.
Zip Lock Bags
Store your products the smart way by utilizing an everyday item: zip-lock bags! When traveling always pack your cosmetics and products in a sealed bag in case anything spills. It’s also great to carry your makeup in bags to keep everything together so nothing gets lost.
An All-In-One Product
Rather than packing your entire makeup bag, choose a versatile product. Our experts recommend something that will cover the essentials: pouty lips and rosy cheeks. We love the Stila Convertible Color compact that packs a punch in its tiny packaging. Throw this gem in your luggage and swipe on for a quick upgrade in your look when you head from the pool out to dinner.
Take some time to pack smart! Keep it simple! Make sure you check out the weather where you will be traveling and pack essential pieces that can be worn in multiple ways. Consider what activities you’ll need to be prepared for and stick to items that will fit in with your adventures! We always consult the packing tips from Real Simple when we are packing for a trip!
