Beauty Essentials and Tips for Your Summer Travels!

It’s the middle of summer, which means it’s time for vacations! It doesn’t matter if you’re hitting the beach, going camping, or taking a city break– you’re going to need some beauty products. We know that packing can be a pain. That’s why we’ve created this list of beauty essentials to make it easier for you!

A Sleek, Multipurpose Palette

Owning multiple palettes for eyeshadow, contour, highlighter, and blush is great, but carting them around while you travel? Not so much. Find a palette that combines all of these functions. All-in-one-palettes are compact and give you everything you need to create the look you want. Whether you want neutrals, smoky eye colors, or vibrant shades, there are more than enough palettes to choose from!

Travel-Sized Mascara

Regular-sized tubes of mascara take up space in your makeup bag. It’s also way more product than you’ll need on a vacation. Switch out your standard tubes for some adorable travel-sized versions. If you’re headed to the beach or a humid climate, most brands offer minis in waterproof formulas.

Mini Hair Tools and Products

Want to save space in your suitcase? Don’t pack hefty blow-dryers or curling irons. You can buy travel-size versions of all your favorite hair tools. If mini versions won’t cut it when it comes to curling or flat irons, there are some sleek full-sized options available. For washing and styling your hair, opt for travel-size shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, and dry shampoo. You can also buy small, empty plastic bottles and decant your full-sized shampoo and conditioner into them.

Sunscreen and Products with SPF

No matter where you’re headed this summer, sunscreen is a must-have to keep your skin protected. Mini bottles of sunscreen and spray-on sunscreen are your best bet for easy, mess-free travel. You should also make sure your foundation, BB cream, or tinted moisturizer has SPF included for extra sun protection.

Face Wipes

For a quick and easy refresh that removes makeup, dirt, and grime, get yourself some face wipes! Keep in mind that face wipes alone won’t thoroughly cleanse your face, but they’re great to have around for airplane rides and car trips. Heading to the beach this summer? Wipe that sand and salt off with a face wipe. Going up in the mountains for a camping trip without running water? Face wipes are instant way to feel fresh.
