Summer is here and, for many, vacations are just around the corner!
When packing, the dilemma is always what to bring and what to leave behind. The same applies with your cosmetics.The hardest thing for me is to decide what I need to bring versus what I want. Trying to pack my entire skincare and makeup collection adds too much weight to my suitcase… But it is easy to downsize.
Here are my top 5 products to pack when going away on vacation!
Micellar water: This is the best 3 in 1 product for your skincare regime acting as an eye makeup remover, face cleanser and toner.
BB cream with SPF: The higher the spf the better. Not only does it protect your face from the sun’s UV rays, it will replace your face cream, foundation and concealer.
After sun lotion: Using an after sun lotion will help repair and refresh your skin after a day outside. It will also double up as a night cream.
Bronzing powder: A summer must have, the powder base will absorb any oil on the face. They are also a great alternative to a blush and it comes handy as an eyeshadow at night.
Mascara: Probably your one luxury item to pack, it takes up minimum room in your bag but makes a huge difference, even for the simplest makeup look!
