Our Beauty Editor, Huda Kattan, gives us all the tips to making beauty travel smooth and gorgeous!
No one wants to pack their entire beauty wardrobe when traveling. It’s not practical and let’s face it, it’s completely unnecessary! How many times have you packed beauty products with you while on vacation that you didn’t use or worse, exploded into a huge goopy mess? Staying beautiful while you travel should not be that hard, and luckily it can actually be achievable! In this article we give you all the tips you need to ensure a gorgeous vacation from start to finish!
They may look uselessly small at first, but beauty sets come in incredibly handy when traveling. Using the deluxe sample size means you get enough product to last you an entire trip without adding too much weight to your suitcase.
We know it’s hard, but abandoning foundation is one of the best things you can do while traveling. On holiday, embrace BB creams and let them work their magic on your skin. They will not only make you look gorgeous, but they’re also really easy to use. The SPF, skin-brightening agents, and pigments contained are ideal if you need to look great fast.
Deciding what makeup to take with you on holiday is a huge undertaking, so we recommend turning to palettes. The different colors mean that a single palette can accommodate different moods, whether you’re looking for something simple or something smokey. What’s more, they’re compact and travel-friendly.
It’s best to travel light, and what better way to ensure that than by packing multi-tasking tools? If your holiday is going to require you to sport polished curls or sleek locks, opt for a do-all tool like the GHD flat iron. The high temperature and thin wand allow you to create both gorgeous curls and poker-straight hair.
Fragrant Lotions and Creams
One of the bulkiest things to pack when you’re traveling is perfume. The fragile bottles and security regulations make it very difficult to take your favorite fragrances around the world with you. A great way to solve this issue and keep yourself smelling fresh all day is to use scented body lotions and creams.
A girl’s worst nightmare is to open her suitcase upon arrival to find that her lotion has spilled all over her clothes, ruining her favorite dress. The best way to avoid this is to switch from lotions to creams. Creams tend to come in screw-top containers that are less prone to opening by accident.
You may really enjoy your morning routine of layering on different creams, serums, and lotions, but that’s just not going to cut it on holiday. Instead of stuffing your entire beauty cupboard into your suitcase, only pack products that can be used for multiple purposes. For example, hair elixir is great for both glowing skin and perfect hair. Similarly, you can moisturize and fight frizz by using hair oil on your skin as well as on your locks.
