Pack the perfect vacay beauty bag

Remember Hermione’s carry-all beaded handbag? If only we could carry our entire makeup collection around with us in one classic little black bag this summer! But because we can’t, we’ve created a list of the 10 beauty products you’ll need for any vacation. Everything here should fit into a small, cute cosmetic bag. Pop this into your suitcase and you’ll have more space for everything else (like shoes!).

    1. A cute cosmetics carryall

    We love, love, love this Parisian inspired cosmetic bag! Available in turquoise and pink, this bag easily fits most of your favorite beauty products. The glossy finish also prevents it from getting wet in the bathroom. Score!

    2. 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner

    This 2-in-1 shampoo + conditioner helps you save time in the shower so that you can go out and enjoy the sunshine. Just because you’re short on time doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your hair—this product leaves hair feeling silky and hydrated from oily roots to dry ends. Not only is it easy breezy, it also smells like Hawaii and coconuts in a bottle! Pour some in a travel-size container—you won’t need a ton.
    Herbal Essences Hello Hydration 2 in 1 Moisturizing Shampoo + Conditioner, $4,

    3. Cleansing cloths

    It’s important to make sure to clean your face thoroughly before slipping into those PJs. These makeup remover wipes completely zap oil, dirt and (even waterproof!) makeup from your face. There’s no need to rinse afterwards. As a plus, it’s oil-free which means it shouldn’t create breakouts, keeping you smooth-faced all summer. 

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Makeup Remover Wipes, $8,

    4. Lip/cheek stain

    While this is a splurge buy, this product is definitely worth it. This mango-tinted stain serves a dual purpose. You can blend it out on your cheeks to create a coral glow or smooth it onto your lips to create that perfect pout! Look sun-kissed and perfectly flushed from sunrise to sunset.
    Benefit Cha Cha Tint, $29,

    5. B.B. Creams

    You’ve probably heard all the rage about B.B. creams by this point (read more HERE), but B.B. creams are definitely the perfect product to bring around with you on all your travels. This amazing cream moisturizes, perfects and protects (with SPF 15) your skin. This is a great foundation alternative for ladies on-the-go. It keeps you looking dewy and natural, and it has great staying power in even the most humid and hot days. And believe it or not, your skin will look great after you remove your makeup too!

    Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream, $13,

    6. SPF

    You’ll probably be chillin’ in the sun, but your skin will be scorched without protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays! Make sure to apply sunscreen regularly (read about sunscreen myths HERE). This oil-free sunscreen by Neutrogena is easy to apply and packs SPF 30. To make things even better, you can apply it on wet skin without worrying about it sliding right off!

    Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Spray (SPF 30), $8,

    7. Highlighting concealer

    If you have trouble with concealers, make sure to check out this relatively new multipurpose concealer from Maybelline. It illuminates as it covers for brighter, beautiful skin. We like patting it around the eyes to brighten dark circles. Blend out on the bridge of your nose, the browbone and even on smile lines for a lovely, luminescent glow. It comes with a brush applicator to make application a breeze.   
    Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer, $8,

    8. Waterproof mascara

    This mascara maxes out every little lash to give your gaze that extra kick. The waterproof formula also doesn’t wash off with sweat and water, which means you don’t have to worry about it running down your face! 
    CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof Volume Mascara in Very Black, $6,
  • 9venus.jpg

    9. 2-in-1 razor

    Use this razor to get beach-ready. It also includes a moisturizing bar right against the blade so that you don’t need to bring shaving cream. Shaving has never been so cinchy!
     Gillette Venus Breeze, Razor Plus Shave Gel Bars, $11,

    10. Black liner

    For nights out, you might want to do something a little more special. This waterproof pencil eyeliner by NYX comes in a variety of bold shades from jet black to sunrise blue. Most importantly, because it’s as smooth and creamy as butter, it doesn’t painfully tug on your eyelids for those of you with sensitive skin! Place it on the waterline to make lashes appear fuller or gently smudge it out to create a subtle smoky eye.
    NYX Slide On Pencil, $8,
