‘I’ve got that summertime,
Summertime sadness happiness!’
We totally apologize for changing the lyrics of Lana Del Ray’s amazing song, but the happiest season of the year is here! Whether you are running off to the mountains to escape the heat, or embracing it all on the beach, you can’t deny that summertime is the best. However, packing your makeup for your dream vacation? Not so much fun. This year, instead of lugging around a gazillion lipsticks and eyeshadows, we’ve created the ultimate makeup travel kit for you!
1. Tinted Moisturizer
Give your skin a break from all the heavy foundations and concealers! If you need a bit of coverage, apply a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. Urban Decay’s Urban Defense Tinted Moisturizer will give you a healthy glow and features SPF 20 sun protection.
2. Eye Pencil
Liquid liners require precision and patience, and we don’t want you to waste a single moment of your precious vacation! Eye pencils are easy to use, versatile and can be smudged for a softer look. We love Yves Saint Laurent’s Dessin Du Regard Waterproof Eye Pencils for their creamy and intense payoff.
3. Eyeshadow Palette
A shimmery bronze eye for the pool, a light gold effect for lunch and a dramatic smoky eye for the party? An eyeshadow palette can help you achieve it all. Urban Decay’s 'Naked2' Palette has a dozen shades in matte, shimmery and metallic finishes.
4. Two Lipsticks
Yes, we aren’t restricting you to just one lipstick – that’s impossible! Opt for a pink lipstick for the daytime and a red shade for the night. Our travel kit contains Clinique’s Chubby Stick Lip Colour Balm in ‘Plushest Punch’ which is a buildable, bright pink; and L’Oreal Paris ‘Pure Scarleto’, which is a bold, matte red.
You already know how much we adore Vaseline! Use this miracle product to get a dewy glow, to remove makeup, or just mix it with your lipstick to turn it into a blush.
6. Glitter Nail Polish
As much as we adore bright summery nails, we hate the chips that inevitably occur. Cover them up with a coat of glitter nail paint for instant nail art! So easy, yet so trendy. Sephora has a ton of sparkly nail polishes to choose from.
These essential makeup products will keep you beautiful throughout your holiday. And all the space you saved can be used to shop for more!
