What to pack in your sponge bag for a getaway.
READ MORE >
Packing for a trip can be hard, especially when it comes to beauty. What you pack is very
dependant on your destination, and while you can assume a couple bikinis and summer
dresses is perfect for a summer getaway - it's tricky figuring out how your skin will react
to a change in humidity, temperature and daily elements.
For that very reason, I always pack foolproof products. This is not the time to be testing
out new products (unless it's the bright new nail varnish you got in the airport!)
No matter where you're going, you need calming and hydrating skincare throughout the
flight and upon arrival. After a day at the beach or a afternoon on the slopes, you need to
soothe and hydrate your skin. My essentials are SK-II Facial Treatment essence, applied
after every cleanse, Avene Eau Thermale to stay hydrated on the flight or at the beach, and
Sisley Hydra Global to make sure all the moisture is locked in. I'll also pack my current eye
cream, lip balm and sunscreen.
And the same goes for makeup, if your destination is a different temperature than your skin
is used to; you certainly don't want to irritate or aggravate it with layers of makeup. I opt for
a lightweight base such as Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow, which will cover any imperfections
without hiding any newly acquired freckles or tan. A do good brow gel, highlighter and cheek
colour and bold lipstick have my covered for a multiple of occasions during my trip. I've
opted for Givenchy Mister Brow Gel, Clinique Sculpting Highlight, Charlotte Tilbury Beach
Stick - which are all cream, no crumbling powders here - and my favourite Tom Ford
In addition to the necessities I always pack my favourite summer scent - Bronze Goddess from
Estée Lauder - and nail polish from OPI. Easy. Then I just pop them into my BonAir from
American Tourister; my first hard case suitcase which is a total life saver for keeping beauty
products in one piece, and I'm ready to roll!
