If you’re lucky (and we hope you are), your summer is filled with country getaways, lazy beach trips, seaside clambakes—you get the picture. All that traveling is exciting but prepping and packing can be a major hassle. Have a stress-free summer with our beauty survival kits, tailored to any summer travel scenario.
Weddings offer an overabundance of photo ops that will live on (good, bad, slightly tipsy) on Facebook. Not to mention the possibility of cute groomsmen. Bottom line: You’ll want to look smashing. And you will, if you pack these helpers:
Situation: The bride pitches a fit because your plum mani clashes with the butter yellow dress she picked out for you. No problem — just use Deborah Lippmann’s nifty lacquer remover mitts to do a polish change.
Even if you aren’t part of the wedding party, you’ll want your hair to look impeccable. Make sure every strand is in place with a quick spritz of a styler like Pureology’s non-sticky version, which adds shine too.
If you’re like us, surf trip might be code for “lay-on-the-beach trip.” Nevertheless, there are a few things you’ll want to have on hand — no matter how adventurous you are.
These SPF towelettes can be thrown in your beach bag and used to reapply sunscreen throughout the day.
We’re huge fans of the beachy wave look but salt water can leave hair looking a little dull (not to mention tangled). Add extra shine and protect hair with a hair oil like this Obliphica and Argan Oil- fortified treatment.
After a long day in the water, your skin will be begging for a little moisture too. This body cream is light enough for summer but cures dry skin deep down with honey, antioxidant-rich wild fruit oils, and macadamia oil.
Whether you’re hoofing it to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland or sweating through beautiful European historical districts, you’ll want to stay cool, calm, and collected.
Concrete surroundings and trekking around in the heat can suck the moisture out of your skin. This high-tech ‘heavy water’ refreshes skin with a few mists and helps set makeup as well.
These handmade, gold-flecked blotting papers remove oil for a matte finish (even if you’re sweating up a storm).
A great statement lip will go a long way, especially if your urban escape involves feasting at top restaurants. This oversized pencil requires minimal skill to apply and brightens up an entire look. Plus, the hot pink shade looks great on any skin tone.
The best nail lacquer remover, now in handy portable form — perfect for office, travel, and on the go polish emergencies.
This blush brush has synthetic bristles that are extra soft and extra durable, and the retractable design makes it perfect for travel.
These handy sunscreen towelettes deliver oil-free SPF 30 plus anti-aging benefits.
