Packing a suitcase or a backpack can be tricky and being able to add those little things that help to make you feel like yourself can sometimes make or break a trip. You can still take your basics with foundation, UV protection, lip and eye makeup – your usual routine may just need a little pruning and you a few lessons in how to make less still look like you! We have put together our top 6 travel makeup tips to help make packing and still looking fabulous easier!
1 – Use pressed powder as it can be worn during the day for a medium coverage and built up to a fuller coverage during the evening
Colorescience Pressed Powder – a natural finish pressed foundation powder
- Medium to full coverage allows a day-to-evening look
- Neutral shades to match more skin tones
2 – Take sun protection that is easy to top up throughout the day and is water-resistant for 80 minutes!
Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen – an easy to transport and apply sun protection
- SPF 30 UVA/UVB protection
- Can be worn alone or over makeup
- Easy to re-apply throughout the day
- Feels weightless on the skin
- Has an 80 minute water-resistance – so ideal when feeling sweaty during sightseeing or differing humidity *
- Physical sun protection
- Active ingredients – zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, non-irritating on the skin -providing broad spectrum protection
* Note: we recommend Aspect Envirostat Touch Dry SPF 50 for active sports, such as skiing or cycling, and when your holiday is based on or around water. This combination is actually perfect for these trips. Travel makeup tips are not just about being beautiful, but protecting your skin at the same time.
3 – Take lip colour that has multiple purposes, including adding colour, nourishment, moisture and UV protection
