I’m sure a lot of you have your summer vacations planned by now or maybe you’ve got a good idea of where and when you want to go. Whether you’re going for a week long vacation or a long weekend vacation, you need to bring beauty products with you that are both functional and compact so they minimize your luggage load. I recently discovered 5 travel-friendly makeup & beauty products from mark. and Avon that have both of those qualities and will have you organized and looking amazing for your much anticipated trip.
Hook up your eyes with mark.’s new Eye Contact Hook Up Eyeshadow magnetic palette in Smoke & Mirrors ($18). It comes with nine shades that you can mix and match in a blendable, crease-proof formula. If you love smokier shimmery shades of green, purple and brown, this palette has it but you can also get lighter, day-appropriate eye looks with it too but there’s also a neutral eyeshadow palette available if that’s what you prefer. The palette is very travel friendly because it fits into the palm of your hand and it’s magnetic too so it won’t go anywhere when it’s connected side by side to another Eye Contact palette or mark.’s Cheek Magnet Hook Up Blush.
The Cheek Magnet Hook Up Blush ($18) comes in six sizzling shades that come in a mix of mattes and shimmers that give you a radiant flush that is also buildable. The shade I got to try out is Mauve Forward, a matte mauvy pink that would look good on everyone. It’s neutral enough to compliment a lot of eye looks and perfect for travelling because, like the Eye Contact palette, it fits into the palm of your hand and I like that it’s magnetic as well.
I like bringing lip products with me that do more than just add colour to my lips and the All Butter Now Lip Treat‘s from mark. do exactly that. The lip treat’s help increase your lip moisture by 124% and contain shaea, cocoa and mango seed butters. They come in eight shades that range from sheer to full coverage that all deliver gorgeous colour with a buttery shine. I tried out Bare All which is a semi-sheer beige nude and a colour that will go with pretty much any makeup look because it’s not too light and is more of a natural nude. Being under the sun and in different climates can leave you with nasty, chapped lips and I really like that this does double duty and gives my lips the hydration they need on a regular basis.
When you’re on vacation, you’re bound to have a day (or two) that goes on until the late hours of the night and that’s why having something waterproof with you is essential. The Dusk Till Dawn Waterproof Eyeliner‘s ($10) from mark. last all day and glide on smoothely and precisely. They come in five shades and provide a velvety finish that’s also smudge-resistant. I got to try out their black and brown pencils called Blackout and Daybreak. They have a very creamy consistency when you first apply them which gives you a quick opportunity to play around with them, but when they dry you’ll need a good waterproof makeup remover and some elbow grease to remove every last bit. This is why bringing at least one waterproof eyeliner with you is a good idea because it will stand up against anything – a swim at the beach, a night of dancing and any and all emotions that come from being on a great trip.
I can’t forget to mention the products you downsize when you go on vacation, like sunscreen, body wash and lotions. Some of the smaller tubes can be really inconvenient and hard to work get product out of. That’s why Avon’s Be Inspired Travel Set ($19.99 / Avon.ca) is the perfect kit for your body care and sunscreen needs because it comes with tubes that are squeezable, so you can get every last ounce. The silicone tubes range with the capacity of holding 37 to 59 ml and are the easiest things I’ve used for creams because it isn’t a struggle to make sure you’re not wasting anything. They come with a clear zip up clear case which you can use to transport the tubes or you can use them to, of course, help you bring more makeup with you!
