A beauty routine tends to be quickly forgotten when travelling, but pack these makeup essentials for travel and you will still be looking your best even while enjoying your getaway.
- A BB Cream
Instead of adding a handful of products into your bag, you could just pack the handy little BB Cream. Most BB Creams work at being a primer, foundation, moisturiser and sunscreen giving your face a little something without clogging up your skin with a variety of products. This gem is perfect for summer getaways where you still want to look put together without the hassle.
- A Mascara
In particular, a waterproof mascara. Adding a bit of definition around your eyes is a quick way to wake your face up and making yourself look polished. Why waterproof? It makes it easier. It can cover us in any situation – rain, hail or shine.
- An Eyebrow kit
Not only can you still continue to get your eyebrows looking flawless, but a little eyebrow kit is a genius multi-use product in your makeup bag. The shadows in the kit can also be used as neutral eyeshadows and eyeliner, making an eyebrow kit a fantastic inclusion into a small makeup bag.
- A lipstick
Another product you can use for various things. Obviously as a lipstick, but by dabbing the lipstick you can turn it into a lip stain and finally also as a blush. Just dab some on your fingers, warm the product up then apply on the apples of your cheeks blending upwards and backwards towards your ears.
- A highlighter
Okay, so more of a luxury item than a necessity, but oh so pretty. Add a little bit of a highlight on your cheekbones, under your eyebrows, in the inner corners of your eyes, top of your cupid’s bow and the tip of your nose (you might as well take a shower in the stuff…). By adding some glow action, your face will be fresh, healthy and awake. Oh, and you can also use it as an eyeshadow too!
You don’t have to pack the world when it comes to your beauty regime. Work at packing essentials and utilising the multi-use products in your collection if your space is tight.
