Keep Your Beauty Routine Simple on Vacation

Monday, October 18, 2021

     For most people, a vacation means a chance to escape, unwind, and step out of your everyday life in all senses. With that in mind, you don’t want to be spending hours in your room grooming and applying your makeup. Of course, you want to look put-together, but you can do so in a way that is simple and quick and gives you that fresh-faced look that is ideal when on vacation especially in the summer months.

     Here are some simple and easy-to-follow steps that will simplify your beauty routine while on your holidays, which also means you won’t have to pack anywhere near as many items.

Consider the Location

     Before you even decide what the essential items are for your beauty routine, it’s a good idea to give the location some thought. Let’s assume you are heading to the beach to stay at an all-inclusive resort in the middle of the summer. Clearly, your beauty essentials are going to be quite different than if you were to be booked in a luxury hotel. The location will mainly affect your skincare essentials such as your day cream/lotion, night cream/lotion, sunscreen, and possibly your cleanser. Think about what the climate/environment will do to your skin and pack accordingly.

The Basic Makeup Items

     While you may have a whole drawer of cosmetics available to you at home, there’s no need for them while on vacation. In fact, you can usually get by with just a couple of staple items, especially if you just want to sport a fresh and no-makeup makeup look. By packing the basics, you’ll also be able to tone the look down for daytime activities like strolling at the park or window shopping, and then amp it up for nighttime partying.

     You can narrow it down to five basics and then build from there. The basics are concealer, a light foundation, mascara, cream blush, and nude or pink lipstick. This is technically all you need to create that “fresh-faced” look. 

The Mattes are Here to Stay

     With the "new normal", wearing a mask is a must that's why when it comes to your makeup, it is advisable to choose transfer-proof liquid lipsticks and other budge-proof makeup. I recently discovered Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick and it's a keeper! Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick collection features highly pigmented shades that can give you a much-needed pop of color. Best of all, it boasts a fade-proof and transfer-proof matte formulation that lasts up to 16 hours, which means you don’t have to worry about it rubbing off on and leaving stains on your mask. It truly is the ultimate summer-proof lipstick.

This lightweight foundation mattifies and refines pores and leaves a natural, seamless finish. Ideal for normal to oily skin, this exclusive matte foundation formula features micro-powders and mattifying clay to control shine and blur pores for up to 12 hours.
