Who said you can’t look glamorous on the go?
We have 10 Travel Beauty Essentials (TSA Approved, btw) to help you look gorgeous without having to carry a train case load of beauty products (guilty as charged).
The beauty game-changer of this decade, Dry Shampoo, is an absolute travel essential especially for the Summer months. Because, who has the time vacation ala mode to wash, dry, style and repeat?
Try Fekkai – Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo. It’s the ultimate time saver for those perpetually ponytailed hair in between washes.
Blow-dried to perfection hair? Check.
Of course you need one. But you don’t have to carry a bag full of makeup removers, cleansers and toners when you can simply take with you Philosophy – Purity At Home and Away Duo. The set features Philosophy’s award-winning daily facial skin cleanser and disposable cleansing cloths, in case you don’t have water access to rinse while on the go.
The cleanser-cloth combination not only removes makeup but also helps hydrate and tone the skin. Talk about a multi-tasking product!
Clean, Glowing Skin? Check.
While you can skimp on a multitasking product for cleansing, your skin will still need a good dose of nourishment for those long partying nights and all the travelling stress.
If you are in the mood for a splurge, take with you GLAMGLOW – Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. A cult-favorite, the mask is designed to act like a 10-minute professional ‘facial in a jar’. Nothing better than to indulge on your vacation, right?
But if you are on a budget (because who isn’t?), opt for Bliss – Triple Oxygen to The Rescue! Facial in a Box, a travel friendly kit which features a Energizing Foaming Mask, Spa-Strength Resurfacing Pads and an Energizing Vitamin C Day Cream. Alternatively, you can opt for the REN – Glow and Go! Kit which includes a Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial and Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask. Both travel friendly, and super effective in giving your skin a refreshing glow on the go.
Nourished, Hydrated Skin? Check.
If you have ever been told off for carrying a truckload of makeup to your trips, it is time to shun them all for a multitasking badass product.
Something that covers allof your high maintenance makeup bases: moisturizer, primer, sunscreen AND foundation. Our solution for your go-to for flawless skin? Smashbox – Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35.
Bonus? It comes in a travel size too!
Unblemished complexion? Check.
While the superstar BB cream might give you a good base, some pesky imperfections still require a heavy duty concealer to hide them.
We recommend traveling with Smashbox – High Definition Concealer to act as a double acting concealer for those dark circles and other imperfections.
No Raccoon Eyes? Check.
Between choosing an arsenal of makeup brushes and a beauty blender, we will always pick the latter. Not only because it delivers a flawless finish on the go but also because it helps apply ALL of your makeup with just one sponge.
Use the flat bottom for stippling in your BB cream, the tip to blend in the concealer and the sides to blend in the blushes.
Flawless makeup? Check.
Lipsticks and Blushes
Oh no, you don’t carry them both. You carry a gorgeous, golden makeup case (that doubles as a clutch for the date night, btw) filled with three travel size “wands” of lip and cheek makeup.
Pixi – Fresh Face Case features a highlighter, a gloss and a lip and cheek stain. The trio works to enhance your cheeks, cheekbones, eye lids (yup, it triples up as a eye enhancer too) and lips!
Did we mention the beautiful golden case?
Glowing Cheeks and Rosy Pouts? Check.
One product that instantly transforms a cutesy look to a sensual one is a mascara.
A swipe of a volumizing mascara like Smashbox – Full Exposure Mascara Jet Black that gives “outrageous volume, serious lift and a high-shine, glossy finish” can instantly oomph up your otherwise neutral look.
Falsie Effect? Check.
Manicure Kit and Nail Remover Wipes
Nothing glams up a look like a manicured hand!
When you don’t have time for a full makeup look or are planning a lazy day at the beach, amp up your look with a simple manicure.
Can’t decide which nail color to travel with? Take with you butter LONDON – High Tea Collection which has THE perfect shades to transition from a Melon Crème beach look to a Nude Crème shopping look straight to the Deep Berry Crème manicure for a dinner date on the go.
Traveling with a nail polish remover that has a 90% chance of spilling and ruining all your luggage is a big no-no.
Instead, travel with nail remover wipes. You will need some for all those gorgeous transitions mentioned above.
A good travel friendly option is butter LONDON – Glitter Scrubbers Textured Remover Wipes. Simply because they are saturated enough to even help you get rid of those stubborn glitter polishes (if you are wearing one) all the while nourishing your nails.
Glamorous Manicures? Check.
Deodorants and Perfumes
Be it the balmy Miami beaches or the cooler European destinations, deodorants and perfumes are a MUST for traveling.
Again, you don’t need to carry much except a deodorant mini like Lavanila – The Healthy Deodorant Vanilla Snowberry and a mini perfume set like Philosophy – Live with Grace and Love Fragrance Set to give you three different options for day to night partying.
Florally fragrant? Check.
