It is a challenge to go on vacation and still maintain your beauty routine while traveling. You have to pack light and you are much busier than you think you will be. This means less time to devote to putting on makeup as well as doing the things you normally do to stay looking like yourself.

This isn’t to say that you should abandon all hope of looking good while on vacation. It is still possible to keep your makeup looking good as long as you bring the right products. There is no need to bring your entire kit, but a few essentials will help you. In this article, we will go over some of the essentials to bring along on your vacation.

1. Lip care

Believe it or not, your lips are going to be one of your biggest concerns when you are on vacation. For starters, they are a sensitive area and can be susceptible to getting sunburnt. Most vacations are done during the summer with the sun beating down on your lips. Even a winter vacation carries some risk since snow reflects the sunlight and can cause lips to get burnt.

Make sure to bring a lip gloss, lipstick, or lip balm that has some SPF in it to prevent a burn. Think about the colors instead of clear ones so you can tint your lips while protecting them at the same time. Add a lip liner pencil to the bag so you can not only make your lips look defined, but also helps the gloss from spreading.

Since these take up a tiny amount of space, you can easily bring along a few different versions to make sure you have all of your options covered.

2. Multitasking tools

 Since you have limited space in your bag when you go on vacation, it is a good idea to maximize the space by bringing multitaskers. If you can reduce the number of products you bring but still have the ability to do all of your makeup routines then this is a huge vacation win.

An example of a multitasker is a dual-ended brush that gives you different textures without needing two different brushes. With just one tool you have the ability to apply powder, bronzer, blush, and highlighter.

A sponge can also be brought that doesn’t weigh much at all and is very small so you can make blending liquid, cream, and powder products.

3. For your eyes

 Jetlag, the sun, and being tired from sightseeing can take a toll on your eyes. It is a good idea to bring along some anti-aging cream to plump up your sagging eyes when you are on vacation. Those bags will make it difficult to get your look if you have gone with minimal makeup products.

Once your eyes are taken care of then you should also have some of your favorite mascara to complete your look. Eyeliners will enhance the shape of your eyes and will last throughout a long day of sightseeing and visiting museums.
