IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ Travel Size
If you’ve used this tinted moisturizer before, then you’re already well-aware that it’s a must-have to achieve flawless-looking, even, dewy skin. It’s perfect for vacation because it’s long-lasting, easy to apply and a little bit goes a long way — not to mention the SPF 50+!
NYX Professional Makeup Setting Spray Mini in Dewy
Obsessed with dewy skin? If so, then you need this affordable lil glow-inducing spray in your life. Just a few spritzes will help your makeup look fresh all day. For those of you who prefer the look of matte makeup, we recommend picking up a travel-size version of the top-rated Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
Nudestix Nude Gloss Balm Founder Set
Multipurpose is a must, especially when you’re on-the-go. This trio of glossy neutrals is meant for both lips and cheeks (though you could definitely make it work on your eyelids, too). They have a glossy, non-sticky finish that can be blended out with your fingertips or a brush. Because we’re in vacay mode, we’re opting for the former.
Urban Decay On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette
Props to you if you’re lugging your 20-pan eyeshadow palette on vacation (you do you, girl). For the rest of us, we’re loving these six-pan palettes from Urban Decay. They come in three different color families: Shortcut (burgundy and reds), Detour (neutrals and teal) and Bailout (neutrals and violet). Pick one, pick two, or pick ’em all.
IT Brushes for Ulta Face & Eye Essentials Travel Brush Set
If you can’t live without your makeup brushes, you best not forget them for your vacation. This set contains five brushes for your complexion, eyeshadow, crease, smudge and liner/brow.
Pacific Lime is the newest fragrance from Atelier Cologne. The scent reminds us of the tropics with its mixture of fresh, sweet and woody notes. It’s perfect for the citrus lover, or the vacationer looking for a new tropical scent.
Lancôme Travel Size Monsieur Big Mascara
For big, bold waterproof lashes, we recommend Monsieur Big. The formula will last up to 24 hours and won’t require touch-ups. If waterproof isn’t your jam, there’s also a mini version of the regular formula, which will also stay on for a long period of time. For extra volume, prep your lashes with Cils Booster Mascara Primer and curl before applying mascara.
