Summer Makeup Essentials For Travel

Summer Makeup and Skincare Perfect for Traveling

Summer is almost here – time for that sun kissed skin, beach waves and all of the sunscreen! But let’s face it, the low-maintenance days of summer don’t mean we have to go without our favorite makeup essentials. In fact, it’s an opportunity to get creative, try something new, and pack a makeup bag that will take you through all your summer travels without a care in the world!

Here are a few of our favorites to incorporate into your travel bag for the ultimate summer makeup looks!

Monochromatic Multi Makeup Sticks: The best travel companions, these < makeup sticks do it all – eyes, lips and cheeks in one tube that will keep you looking sun kissed all summer long. Want to fake a sunburn without all the sun damage? Grab one in your favorite shade (ours is Glimmering Guava) and use as a blush stick and apply this with your fingertips to the apples of the cheeks and the bridge of the nose. Feeling extra cheeky? Bring the color up a little closer to the orbital bone under the eye to really give the sunburn effect. Heading out after the beach? Dab a little on your eyelids and your lips for the perfect finishing touch.

Daily Dew Sticks: Want that natural summer glow even when you’re hanging out in AC, cool as a cucumber? Snag one of these Daily Dew Sticks -- these give the perfect healthy glow, provide a cooling sensation, and contain skin-loving ingredients to boot! Apply these with your fingertips to the high points of the face (think brow bone, cheekbones, bridge of the nose, even your cupid’s bow), for a beautifully dewy and effortless finish to the skin. You can apply these highlighter sticks on top of makeup or by themselves for an easy no make-up, make-up look. Bonus! Their stick form makes them super travel friendly so you can toss one in your travel bag, beach bag or even gym bag.

Sheer Slick Lipsticks: Don’t forget your lips on your travels – make sure to pick up your favorite shade in this easy-to-wear, sheer lipstick. Not only will you get the perfect wash of color on your lips, but the skin-loving ingredients will keep them soft and nourished all summer long.

All that traveling (and beaching) you’ll be doing this summer can certainly wreak some havoc on your skin so don’t forget to pick up some essentials while you’re here. Here are some of our skincare faves to get you through the season:

Jet Set Hydration Kit: This super travel size skincare kit (it’s already in its own bag and ready to hop onboard with you!), will keep your skin soft and hydrated all summer long! Jam-packed with skin-loving ingredients like Aloe Vera, and Vitamin E, this kit has everything you need to wash away the day and still fit in your carry-on bag for easy packing.

Holy Hydration! Face Cream SPF 30: No travel or beach plans are complete without an SPF and we have our favorite ready and waiting for you! This lightweight, skin-loving face cream with SPF 30 keeps the skin soft and supple while also making sure you’re protected for the harmful UV rays, because this summer is going to be marathon, not a sprint and we want your skin to keep going strong all season long!
