A Week In The Sun | Top Beauty Products


One of the hardest things I find about packing for a holiday, is deciding what beauty products I should take along with me. Especially when most of the trips that I have made of late have been hand luggage only. There are so many restrictions now, specifically when it comes to liquid allowance, and it can make packing a little difficult when it comes to beauty bits and pieces. Before packing for Cyprus, I pulled out everything that I thought I might need to take away and then had the joyful process of condensing it. 

Although, I’m not going to lie, I kind of enjoyed myself really…!


MAKEUP


In terms of makeup, I decided to pick one neutral, every day, easy look that would go with everything and stick to that. That way, I could really condense my products and only pack the bare essentials. So I packed my trusty Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in a tiny little bottle, the Benefit Boi-ing Concealer and a compact powder for my base. I then picked out my Seventeen Shimmer Brick that can be used as a bronzer, eyeshadow and highlighter – universal products are a must! I then popped in a mini Nars Orgasm Blush, some mascara, a liquid liner, my Benefit Brow-Zings, a lip balm, one lip stick and one liquid lipstick and that’s it! A simple everyday face that can be transformed into an evening look with the liquid liner, lipstick and eyeshadow. 


SKINCARE 


Skincare was a little harder to condense as I love applying lots of serums, oils and moisturisers throughout the week, as well as using various face washes, scrubs and face masks. I just love skincare! So I really restricted myself and packed mini tub of Benefit’s Total Moisture, which can be used as both a day and a night cream. I then packed some, dare I say… makeup wipes! I know, I know, but they are so easy to use and don’t take up any liquid allowance!! I also packed some Facial Sun Cream from Spa Magik*, which has an SPF of 50, ideal for sunny weather, and some of the 7th Heaven Charcoal Peel-Off Mask* to give my skin a little prep whilst away. 


BODY PRODUCTS


In terms of body products, I have packed the absolute bare minimum. Some shower gel, a mini deodorant and body spray, a razor and some in-grown hair preventer serum. I also packed my trusty travel tooth tablets rom Lush instead of toothpaste, so that it wouldn’t take up any of my liquid allowance. 

HAIR CARE PRODUCTS


I am not one to use tones of hair care products, so it was a little easier narrowing down what to take away with me in the hair department. I decided to pack some sachet samples of shampoo and conditioner. Not only do they take up a lot less room in terms of liquid allowance, but they are usually really nice brands! I also packed a miniature Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hair Spray, some No7 Hair Care Sun Protector and my trusty Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo.
