Packing for a vacation can sometimes be a little overwhelming. Sometimes you over pack because you keep think “what if I need this?”, and other times you under pack because you try to not over pack and then somehow forget a couple of essentials. This always happens in the beauty department! Will you need 10 different lip options? The answer is definitely: NO! Which is why we’re here to help you out.
Tip: a week before traveling put all the makeup products you’re planning to take with you will away in a makeup bag and keep using the items only in it. You’ll begin to realize which products you use and need, versus the ones that don’t get much love.
You can’t forget about skincare while away. While there’s no need to pack everything along with the bathroom sink with you, it’s important to pack the products that you need during a trip. If you’re travelling somewhere sunny, SPF is a must. If there’s an airplane ride involved, moisturizer is also a must because the air in the plane dries out your skin. You also can’t forget your makeup remover, to make things easier you can use makeup wipes as a removed and cleanser.

Makeup is a bit more personal because everyone wears a different amount of makeup on a day-to-day basis, some of us like to be more glamorous while away, while others take this opportunity to go natural. Either way, you need to have your bases covered. Don’t pack anything that you know you don’t like and won’t use. If you have any minis and samples, you can bring those along to experiment, but make sure the new items that will be joining you on the trip are not too bulky. Having items that pull a double duty are the best, especially those that don’t require extra tools. A trusty foundation and concealer are a must! Instead of packing an eyeshadow palette with brushes, try out an eyeshadow stick that’s very easy to use and doesn’t need extra tools. A black pencil eyeliner can also pull a double duty, smudge it out to create a soft smoky look. As for lips, keep it simple. One day time option and one nighttime option! Lipstick can also be used as blush.
