Space is always an issue when you’re packing for a luxury beach getaway so here’s our guide to the best travel-sized beauty products out there right now, as recommended by some of the top bloggers in the industry.
The smaller they are the more you can put in…
Stella McCartney – Stella Rollerball eau de parfum
As fashion blogger Vivianna Does Makeup points out there’s something very ‘90s about roll-on perfume but this small pen-sized dispenser is the perfect way to take perfume on holiday without taking up too much space.
Another beauty travel essential for Vivianna Does Makeup is the NARS Creamy Concealer which earns its place in your travel make-up bag thanks to its ability to multitask as concealer/eye cream/foundation.
A must for your in-flight bag this light, aromatic hydration mist spray will revitalise skin dried out by a long-haul flight. Its instant moisture hit made it top of Popsugar’s best travel-sized skin care list.
Essie Holiday Kit – mini nail varnishes
Mini nail varnishes can give you the option of taking a range of colours to suit day and night. Make-up blogger Makeup Savvy recommends US brand Essie that does a special Holiday Kit of mini varnishes.
With exposure to sun, sea and lots of late nights sipping cocktails and gazing at the stars, skincare on holiday is crucial. Dr. Hauschka’s travel-sized daily face care kit is a neat solution when travelling light. It comes with travel-sized bottles of cleansing cream, milk, toner and three different day creams all made using organic, natural ingredients.
The problem with powdered eyeshadow can be that they get damaged in transit. This small tube of lightweight, non-greasy colour which can be applied by fingertip gives a shimmering sheen to eyes without the mess. Beauty blogger My Newest Addiction says its perfect alone or as a base layer to other shadows.
