If you’re a student, chances are you’re on edge waiting for spring break to get here, especially if your time off means you’re traveling somewhere far away from your current location. But before you escape campus, you do have to pack and procrastinating any longer won’t make matters easier. To help, we’ve come up with a list of makeup and beauty products you won’t regret packing for your trip. Tip: Pack only what you’ll use — no less, no more.
Click through to check out 10 products you won’t regret packing in your spring break travel bag — including a dewy, full-coverage tinted moisturizer, waterproof mascara to bear all of the elements and an absolute must-have: sunscreen. Not included in your beauty packing list are two essentials you’ll thank us for later: a polaroid camera for real, tangible photos and the finest bottle of drugstore pain relievers you can get your hands on because you’d much rather be safe than sorry.

A Travel Makeup Kit
The NYX Matte vs Glow Jet Set Travel Kit consists of makeup products in two different finishes: velvety matte and luminous. In the bag, you’ll get Matte Setting Spray, Pore Filler, Liquid Illuminator, Away We Go Illuminating Powder, High Def Finishing Powder, Lip Lingerie and #ThisIsEverything Lip Balm. You can also use the makeup bag to store as many vacation makeup must-haves as you can fit.
No matter where you’re off to this spring break, it’s important to incorporate sunscreen into your everyday beauty routine. This light lotion spray will keep your face and body protected with SPF 60.
Sea Salt Spray
If you’re by the beach this break (or just pretending you are), use a texturizing sea salt spray to create sea-salt inspired waves.
This tinted moisturizer will leave you with a dewy finish, while providing you with full coverage and hydration.
Glow Enhancing Drops
You can’t travel anywhere without bringing highlighter with you, and these glow-boosting drops from L'Oréal Paris come in a small, compact dropper bottle. Wear the drops alone or add to your makeup or skincare to customize your glowy complexion.
