Glamour on the Go
With travel on the brain since the launch of our latest travel size products, we are dreaming about our next adventure. For all the explorers, adventurers and travel lovers, we are tackling the hardest task of any holiday with a step-by-step guide to packing beauty items for glamour on the go.
Step 1: Stop.
Put down the three different bronzers. Step away from your lipstick collection.
Packing a travelling toiletries bag is hard, we get it, but step back before throwing your whole beauty draw into your bag. Select a cosmetics case which will fit all of your necessities, but doesn’t invite over packing or take up too much luggage space.
Our pick – Marc by Marc Jacobs Cosmetics Case; $48.00
Step 2: Cull.
Anything you can find in a hotel amenities pack leave behind. (BYO only if you have damaged or coloured hair)
Unpack the full cleanser, exfoliator and toner set and choose make-up wipes instead.
Our pick – Eco-friendly WotNot Wipes 25 pk; $7.95
Step 3: Downsize.
If you struggle with culling your beauty essentials, downsize the full products to travel sizes or include product samples to save space.
Step 4: Multi-task.
Choose items that serve multiple beauty purposes. Select foundation with SPF, bronzers that can be used as highlighters, blush or eye shadow (think Thin Lizzy) and eyeliner and eyebrow pencil combos. Coconut oil is great on to go as it can be used as a face and body moisturiser, hair treatment and lip balm.
Step 6: Reward Yourself.
Upon return from your wild adventure, reward yourself for being the queen of beauty packing by indulging in all the wonderful treatments you had to leave behind. Give yourself a decadent mani-pedi with the nail polish you missed, place a moisturising mud mask on while catching up on TV or treat yourself to a nourishing hair mask.
Our pick – Coconut Revolution Hair Mask; $24.95
