Imagine yourself jetting off to the airport with feelings of sheer bliss. You’ve spent hours checking off your beauty list and your tote is right over your shoulder. You arrive to your destination with a beauty bag full of skin-perfecting products to achieve just the right amount of shine. From travel-sized skincare, contour palettes, to SEPHORA COLLECTION face masks, we’ve got you covered. Here we’ve rounded up ten beauty hacks for flawless vacation photos.
1. Use a mask or two before your trip
Give yourself a fresh start by brightening skin with a facial sheet mask like SEPHORA COLLECTION’S Pearl Face Mask ($6) to perfect and brighten the complexion. Using a hydrating mask like the Orchid Face Mask ($6) post flight will lock in moisture and block dry cabin air.
2. Travel-sized skincare
Invest in your skin with Sephora’s travel-sized skincare goodies that line the checkout lines. A cleanser, serum, day and night moisturizer, SPF and toner should do the trick.
3. Stay hydrated
When skin is hydrated it is plumper and full of glow. For flawless selfies make sure to drink eight ounces of water for every hour you’re in the air.
Regular exfoliation keeps healthy skin in check with the removal of dead skin cells. Opt for a Clarisonic Mia Sonic Facial Brush ($99) or a gentle face scrub like CLINIQUE’S Exfoliating Scrub ($23) to clean away impurities.
5. Use photo-ready foundation
Make your vacation as flawless as your makeup with a photo-ready foundation like MAKE UP FOR EVER’S Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation ($43). This iconic foundation provides a natural, buildable coverage with a blurred second-skin finish. Steer clear of mineral or HD powders when setting your makeup to avoid flashback.
6. Travel contour palette
Accessorize your summer look with a travel-friendly contour palette with three shades like Tarte’s Hamptons Weekender Contour Palette ($19). The blush, bronzer and highlighter trio will have you glowing all weekend long.
7. Individual eyeshadows
Amp up your summer bronze with individual eyeshadow selections. Try packing two or three shades from the SEPHORA COLLECTION’S Colorful Eyeshadows ($8) to take up less space in your beauty bag.
8. Classic lip vs bold lip
Be as bold as your lipstick with BOBBI BROWN’S Luxe Lipstick ($38). Opt for one neutral tone and one bold tone to stand out in photos.
9. Color correct dark circles
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, why not color correct and conceal your dark circles? Try BOBBI BROWN’S Under Eye Corrector ($29) in pink- or peach-based shades to brighten your under eyes and even out skin tone.
10. Calm hair frizz
Finish off your vacation look with frizz-free hair. The MOROCCANOIL Treatment ($34) will leave your hair softer, stronger and full of shine.
Time is of the essence, so get to packing you glow-getter!
