Have travel on your mind? With the end of the school season, I think summer vacation is on most of our minds!
We’re dreaming of road trips with open windows, soaking up the sun in tropical locations and family reunions around the BBQ. Something I’m not quite dreaming of is packing, however.
Thankfully beauty items can be easy to pack, especially with all of the cute mini items available, and today I’m sharing a few of my favorites! They all tuck away nicely into my JOY Better Beauty Case and with the clear sides, I can see exactly what I’ve packed and where everything is!
And another benefit to all of those adorably cute minis? The ability to really try a product for awhile to make sure you like it before committing to (and spending money on) a full size option. So friends, stock up on the minis!
Have you ever been asked the question before that if you were stranded on an island, what one beauty item would you want to have? For me, I’ve always had a hard time narrowing it down… but I have to say, mascara is at the top of my list! With a great mascara, lipstick and maybe a concealer, you can go from drab to fab and feeling ready for a dinner date or night out. Suffice it to say, I always keep a mini version of the best mascaras on hand. Benefit BADgal BANG! Mini and Too Faced BTS Mini are both a top choice!
Especially if you’re heading into warmer weather, a primer DOES help the makeup you’re wearing last though, and that’s why having a mini primer is a good idea. Benefit the POREfessional and Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Mini are a couple of my go-to primers!
If you’re a Beauty Blender lover, then don’t miss out on the Beauty Blender Mini!
Having an all over glow is something we’re always wanting, especially on vacation, right? Benefit’s Gold Rush is a powder blush that truly gives off that “golden-nectar” sheen and is perfect for all skin tones, meaning you can use it before you’ve got that sun-tanned glow and after as well! Plus, it smells delicious with notes of citrus, vanilla and sandalwood and includes rounded brush and built-in mirror… so no need to pack another mirror in your go bag.
When traveling, it’s so easy for our skin to feel dehydrated, so don’t leave home without a great moisturizer, and this PRAI 24K Gold Wrinkle Night Creme moisturizes skin to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with 8 hydrators to provide skin with optimal moisture… meaning you won’t wake up with a skin hangover.
We can’t leave out the body lotion, but carrying a big container when traveling just get’s heavy and cumbersome. This Korres Yoghurt Body Butter Mini is the perfect solution! It’s a great scent, and the perfect amount of moisture, especially for following a day at the beach, without taking up all of our luggage space.
For hair, leave all the cumbersome products at home and let beach waves flow for the win! Fekkai Beach Waves Mini is the perfect addition to your beauty bag for summer travel, it keeps your bag light and your hair summer-ready!
So tell me, what are your favorite beauty product minis for traveling? I’d love to know!
