So, you’re whisking yourself away on a weekend getaway. Good for you! Since it’s a short, impromptu trip, toss just a few beauty essentials, including a handful of makeup items, into your bag and get on your way. You can keep it low-key but pretty with a few simple tips. Beyond the beauty routine basics, here are four makeup items to put in your overnight bag.
Multitasking CC Cream
The beauty of a color-correcting cream is how versatile it is. You don’t need to bring along foundation, tinted moisturizer, primer, concealer, or facial sunscreen as long as you have your trusty tube of CC cream with a broad spectrum SPF 35. The best CC cream will be completely apt at diffusing skin imperfections, fine lines, and pores while also protecting your face from harmful UVA/UVB rays and blue light damage from computer screen and phones.
Seek out a CC cream made by a makeup brand that uses high-performance ingredients and doesn’t test on animals. You’ll want to make sure you’re selecting the highest quality vegan makeup that contains skin-loving formulas with potent ingredients such as vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. Whether you’ll be out by the pool, hiking, or shopping downtown—wherever your adventures take you—you’ll need perfect coverage and protection on your face. Okay, now that the foundation for your look is covered, let’s explore what else you might need.
Mascara enthusiasts can’t say no to a mascara that separates, coats, and lengthens each individual lash. It’s like creating the look of lash extensions without the glue. That’s what’s so awesome about a tubing mascara. What’s even better is a buildable formula that doesn’t clump even when multiple coats are applied.
If you are getting eyelash extensions before the trip, make sure you bring your tubing mascara for eyelash extensions to get the most of them and make your eyes pop. Seek out a fibrous formula that’s water resistant but still easily removed with gentle pressure, makeup remover, and a washcloth.
Your Favorite Lipstick
Sometimes it’s tough to narrow down your lipstick choices on a trip because you never know what you might be in the mood for. Whatever you decide to bring, make sure it contains a nourishing formula that doesn’t dry out or chap your lips. You also want it to be long lasting so you can wear it all day without it fading.
Look for a tube of lipstick that has a creamy, line-smoothing formula that acts as a built-in primer. A bold lipstick can transform your look instantly from day to night, so choose a buildable formula that can provide sheer to full coverage depending on how much of a statement you want your lips to make.
Using your favorite vegan makeup brush, be sure to apply a flawless finish to your makeup. A weightless setting powder softens the look of fine lines and pores while also reducing oil and shine for an airbrushed look. When you brush your favorite setting powder onto your freshly applied makeup, you are locking in your look for the rest of the day. Seek out a high-quality setting powder with a formula that contains vitamin C and green tea to protect your skin from pollution and free radicals.
