Summer beauty essentials

Packing for a holiday takes careful planning and culling your beauty bag is the first place to start. Without compromising on the glam factor, to cater for a beach break, glamping with the girls or a romantic tropical escape, here's an edit of the best holiday beauty buys.

Beach break

Before hitting the beach, your tote needs to be full of products that protect, soothe and repair. Invest in a water resistant sunscreen, a rose coloured lip balm, frizz-fighting hair oil and a tinted self tan, so your body is bronze the moment you hit the sand.

Clinique Body Tinted Lotion, light-medium, $45. Hask Keratin Protein Smoothing Shine Oil, $7.

Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Balm in Rose Petal, $9. Invisible Zinc 4HR Water Resistant SPF50, $20.  


For long hot days and warm nights by the campfire, invest in products that hydrate and give your skin an instant glow. Such as an essential antioxidant skin tint, a hydrating body oil that doubles as self-tan, a hair hydrator and a blush that doubles as bronzer.

Humid days and hot nights call for skin, hair and makeup products that offer multi-purpose use. Never leave town with a dry shampoo, pack a seriously hydrating oil spray, a melt-proof makeup bronzer and water resistant eye liner - then kick back and enjoy.
