It’s summer, you’re being super chill and going with the flow, but saying yes to a last-minute getaway, no matter how near or far can become fairly stressful packing wise. I always find myself missing some major essentials, especially in my toiletry kit.
Clothing is so dependent on where you’re going and the vibe of the trip, but beauty is so nice because it’s so versatile. There are a million factors that go into achieving the perfect summer goal, but when trying to pack light and keep everything minimal I have the perfect five-piece combo set that keeps you dewy and ready to pick up and glow within minutes.
- Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask
This mask is the perfect grab and go product because it is SO versatile. You can use it as a mask, a moisturizer, an eye cream, a primer, and you can even use it by dabbing it on the high points of your face after your makeup to create a super dewy look. I love using it on the airplane as a mask because it really hydrates but nobody will be able to tell that you’re masking on the plane! It was created by Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores – two beauty gurus/bffs who travel all the time, so it’s pretty obvious that they would be able to create the perfect travel product. It’s super clean and amazing for your skin so you don’t have to worry about any bad ingredients.
- Nudestix Nudies Tinted Blur Stick
This stick is the perfect thing ever, I love using it in the summer instead of foundation because it blurs and tints my skin perfectly while being super light and not looking cakey in any way! It creates the most perfect glow ever. I love this also because I can add more and more on if I ever need a little bit more coverage.
- Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek in Perk
The color of this blush/lip tint is so to die for. It gives you that peachy glow that is SO in right now and I love it because it also adds such a glow that I usually don’t even need highlighter on top. It’s amazing to travel with because it’s so minimalistic yet it matches almost every makeup look you would ever want to go for! It’s so easy to just dab some on if you want to make yourself look a little bit more alive. I love using it over a nice sun tan because it makes that sun-kissed look even more amazing. I love using it on my lips too because it’s almost like a tinted lip balm! It adds a ton of moisture to my lips but also gives them a natural tint of color that leaves everyone envious of my pout. I find when I wear it, I don’t even need to use any contour or bronzer because it adds enough definition to my face!
- Fresh Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Mist
The mini size of this mist is the perfect travel companion. It’s exactly 100ml which means you can take it on the airplane with you (this is such an amazing product to bring with you on the plane). I love using this mist as a makeup setting spray, a mid-day refresher, a post-cleansing nourishing treatment, and even just some extra hydration whenever I’m in the mood. This is so good for the plane because it can add moisture into your skin so easily and never leaves you looking greasy which a moisturizer can do. It smells like a field of oranges which I find really helps lift my spirits after a long and stressful travel day or just a busy tourist activity-filled day!
- Ouai Air Dry Foam
This product is the biggest time saver you’ve ever seen. After exiting the shower and letting your hair towel or air dry for a little while you pump a few pumps of this foam into your hand and then scrunch it into your hair. You let your hair dry, and I swear to you it creates the perfect amount of volume, waves, and smoothness for any style! I find that I don’t need to style my hair after I let it dry with the Air-Dry Foam in it because it looks like I just got a blowout! On vacation, you for sure don’t want to waste your time blow drying and styling your hair, and you also can save your hair from the harms of heat!
