Will you be traveling sometimes soon to your much-deserved and needed holiday? Weekend getaways & 10 day holidays can’t go wrong when you are well equipped for them. If this time you want to look fabulous and beautiful when tanning in the sun, or even when getting off your flight, this article will help you achieve that! Here, we will list you the top 7 makeup items that should always be with you.
Top 7 Makeup Essential Items When On A Vacation
1. Skincare products
Your skin will love you if you take good care of it. Women of all ages should have some collagen-based products since these can help with the tiredness (that you may expect after traveling for so long), as well as with the glow level of your skin. A rich serum or your daily moisturizer will make such a huge improvement for your skin’s texture. Your pores won’t get clogged, and your foundation will stick so much better on cleansed skin.
2. Light Base
Heavy foundations are a big no-no since:
A) Why would you want to waste your time applying several coats and layers of something so heavy?
B) During the holidays, you should let your skin breathe as much as possible and you should let it rest.
If you want to feel good after traveling for 5-6 hours just have a good and lightweight BB cream, and some concealer. Don’t pack translucent powders, bronzers, or blushes since these can take away too much of your ‘getting ready’ time. Besides your BB cream and the concealer, you can also bring some liquid highlighter, these are great at giving you a rested and youthful look.
3. Setting Spray
Setting sprays became a huge hit in the last couple of years, while ten years ago no one was really into them. Nowadays a setting spray is a great choice if you want to give yourself long-lasting and sealed makeup. This spray contains a fine mist which is quite hydrating and you will only need 3 pumps of the bottle to enjoy your makeup for hours! You can also use this spray to restore back moisture whenever your skin starts feeling dry. Setting sprays can leave you with satin and radiant finish (which is great if your skin is dry), or you can have a mattifying finish (which is great if your skin is quite oily).
Applying eyeshadows as well as false lashes can be so annoying and time-consuming when you are trying to enjoy your beauty sleep and your vacation. Also, if you are someone who likes to travel light, then there is no reason for you to bring your mascaras, glue-on lashes, lash tweezers, glue, or even eyeliner! Instead, how about you do lash extensions? These are a semi-permanent solution which can last for 3 weeks. Lash extensions are done at a salon by a certified esthetician and are applied one by one on top of your natural lashes. They are heat-proof, waterproof, and smudge-proof, meaning that you can enjoy your swimming and tanning carefree! The best part is that they can look really natural, or however you want them to look-all based on your preference.
Lipsticks are a must wherever you go and no matter the current weather season. Some women prefer liquid lipsticks, while others turn to mattes and satins. However, in this case, the best choice would be a lip balm, tinted lipstick, or even a lip gloss. Anything else might be too drying and uncomfortable for several hours, and don’t forget that your lips demand moisture. You can restore it by applying your lip balm every 3 hours and then on top apply your favorite creamy lipstick.
Eyebrows can be such a hassle to do when you are on vacation. Every woman should, at least, pluck them before she arrives at her favorite spot. This will save you so much time and you will be a bit reckless once you get to your destination. Also, only bring a tinted brow gel with you since it can make such a difference for your natural brows. It is consistent out of tiny little fibers which will give you a noticeable fill, as well as a good hold throughout the day. Women who have naturally bushy brows won’t even need this as their go-to product. Also, if you’ve did microblading you will be set for the entire period as well.
7. Hydrating Mask
Last, but not least, don’t forget a good face mask. These can be a life-changing tool if your skin dries out on the road, or even if you experience a slight sunburn. You can simply apply it on top of your skin and enjoy for 15 minutes each night. A sheet mask will restore moisture & hydration and will calm down your skin. Also, you will get rid of any puffiness or redness around your eyes in less than 15 minutes! Make sure that your mask suits your skin type, and also make sure it has some aloe vera in it. This is great since it gives moisture and boosts your collagen production.
