Vacation Essentials & Makeup Tips

Vacation season has officially begun! School is almost out and we’re ready to take on new adventures. Whether you’re going somewhere hot, cold, or staying home, we have the perfect list of essentials, and makeup tips!

Traveling somewhere, hot hot hot? 


Makeup: When traveling to a tropical, warm climate we try to limit the use of makeup. Sometimes its tricky to wear makeup when you are spending the day in the water and sun. Using an oil free BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer with SPF is a great touch to even our your skin tone. Add some waterproof mascara and a lip stain to complete this minimal makeup look.

Purse (Or Beach Bag!) Essentials: Always keep a water bottle on hand, staying hydrated is important since you will most likely be outside for the majority of the day. We also recommend bringing sunscreen for touch ups, chap stick to prevent dry lips, and blotting paper to remove any access face oils.

Traveling somewhere on the cooler side? 


Makeup: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! The dry cold air can leave your skin looking dull. Keep it glowing with a self-tanner or a shimmer lotion, like the Manna Kadar Sheer Glo. Top off the look with a liquid eye liner, mascara, and a tinted chap stick.

Purse Essentials: Our top necessities for cold weather are, travel sized lotion, chap stick, a scarf. Sunglasses are also of high importance. Just because you can’t see the sun, it doesn’t mean the UV rays aren’t there.

No travel plans this Spring? 

Let’s be honest, not all of us can go on a awesome getaway this season. Who says you can’t explore your own city? Check out your local tourist hot spots and learn more about where you live. You can visit local farmers markets, city attractions, national parks, and so on. Our top pick is to spend the day with friends or a loved one at the park, picnic included.

Makeup: A fun Spring look for some local exploring calls for blush! Wear your favorite foundation and apply a fun pop of color, we love the Manna Kadar Blush in Tropicana. It is a great vibrant color with a tint of shimmer. The more your apply the deeper the color! Lastly apply your finishing touches with mascara and a nude lip, so it doesn’t take away from the blush.

Purse Essentials: Depending on what your plans are, we keep a water bottle, granola bar, and blush for touch ups in our bag. When we spend the day at the park we always bring some of the latest magazines, especially ones that include fun quizzes. Don’t forget to pack your picnic basket!
