SUMMER EDITION | MY BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

Hi guys, here's part two of my summer getaway essentials! In part 1 I collaborated with Marble Arc and showed you some of my favourite fashion pieces for a holiday break which you can find here. I try to pack as light as possible and when travelling with just hand luggage it can be hard to bring your whole make-up bag with you whilst sticking to the under 100ml rule - although my 10 lipsticks thrown in my bag always seem to make it through. Here are some of my favourite beauty products to bring on holiday with me!




NAKED 2 BASICS PALETTE

Unless you're planning on going to some wild neon rave then you shouldn't really need more than these colours to get you through your nights out! I only ever really wear nudes, pinks or purple tones so this works great for me and it's also small enough to carry around in my handbag if need be. As you can see I only ever really use it when I'm travelling and I've had it for over a year!


BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER

For some reason the first time I typed this out I came out with BRONZA instead, my bad must be the capitals and stuff. Anyway I'm sure this product needs no introduction and you're all very aware of the magic it can do and how great the soft bristles feel against your pale skin. This stuff is a bit pricey but nothing out of the ordinary for Benefit, for £20 this stuff can last you up to a year and it works. You can contour your face to look like Cher if you wanted to. Benefit have just come out with a whole new range of bronzing products so if you're looking for something to make you glow up this summer I suggest you check it out! 

AMPHORA AROMATICS CLEANSING WIPES 

These wipes were gifted to me by Amphora Aromatics and they could not be more useful! I'm the first to admit I'm lazy when it comes to taking my make-up off, I either use baby wipes or sometimes go to bed with my mascara and then wake-up with stiff spider lashes. These face and body wipes smell divine, although if you're not a fan of tea tree (who wouldn't be it works wonders?) then the body wipes may not be for you as the scent is quite strong, but then again it's not like you're eating it. They're designed for all skin types which is great for my sensitive skin, and leave your skin feeling refreshed and smooth. I always keep the wipes in my handbag as you never know when a public toilet is going to be out of loo roll or a bird is going to poop on you. 


FRICTION FREE SHAVING RAZOR 

I've spoken about FFS in a post here and about how they're one of the most useful subscription boxes out there and how they leave you feeling like a smooth dolphin. That being said this is a risky thing to bring in your hand luggage because I'm not 100% sure they're allowed? If not scrap that and buy some disposable ones from the supermarket. 

NIP AND FAB EYE CREAM

I love nip and fab products and this stuff has lasted me ages! Again I wrote a blog post about some of their products here. The packaging is super cute and the tube is tiny so you can carry it about with you just about anywhere. It smells great and I apply it every morning to reduce puffiness around my eyes. 

VICTORIA'S SECRET BODY SPRAY

I bought a set of 12 of these last year and to be honest half of them have gone missing or are probably in the hands of my sister. I carry one of these everywhere and they're mostly scattered around my house and handbags. "Passion Struck" is one of my favourite scents and it helps that it's pink. It's a great summer scent and I bring this along instead of one of my bigger perfumes, sorry Marc Jacobs. 

VICTORIA'S SECRET LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

For those days where you head straight from the beach to the beach bar but your hair is currently looking like a horse mane. This stuff smells great and leaves your hair feeling glossy and smooth and less like Hagrid on a good bad day. 

NIP AND FAB CLEANSING PADS 

Best part about these? They cleanse AND tone your skin and don't take up space in your clear plastic bag! I use these whenever my skin is feeling oily or I've worked up a sweat doing all that hard sunbathing work. They just feel like they're doing good stuff for your skin. 

BENETINT 

My mini highlighter went walkabout but this mini benefit cheek and lip tint is perfect for a few days away as it occupies virtually no space in your bag and you only really need one dot on each cheek if you want to stay away from looking like the clown in AHS Freak Show. These are super pigmented and I've also found some great dupes by Technic if you don't want to splurge on the full sized products!

Hope this has been a somewhat interesting read for you guys! What are some of your favourite travel beauty products?
