With summer in full swing, there’s no better time to treat yourself to a holiday. Whether it’s a mini break, long weekend away or a trip abroad, we have enlisted a selection of travel essentials that will save you time, space and hassle when it comes to packing your favourite beauty items!
If you’re a regular false lash wearer, and simply can’t be without them when you’re away, House of Lashes offer an impressive solution to safely storing your lashes. The House of Lashes Precious Gem Lash Case is a perfectly sized, compact case that allows you to store up to three pairs of lashes, as well as tweezers and other small application accessories. This pretty little case also comes in three stunning shades; Aquamarine, Champagne Gold and Rose Quartz.
When applying false lashes, you of course need a reliable, fuss-free adhesive choice that is travel friendly and convenient. We recommend opting for a brush on formula, such as the DUO Brush On Strip Lash Adhesive in Clear. This eliminates the need for cotton buds, and prevents any mess/spillages. The brush on wand allows for an easy application, and the slightly smaller tube is the ideal size for popping in your hand luggage. The clear tone finish is also undetectable once applied allowing for a flawless, discrete finish.
For those that prefer a natural lash look, then eyelash curlers are essential for achieving the best results. Either use alone or alongside mascara for an effortless, eye opening appearance. The Japonesque Go Curl Pocket Curler is incredibly easy to use, compact and suitable for travelling making it a top choice for on-the-go. Simply use in the same way as a standard eyelash curler to enhance the performance of your favourite mascara.
Trying to narrow down your makeup brush collection when going on holiday can be quite a task. Focus on taking versatile, key tools that can be used to apply the basics. The Real Techniques Mini Brush Trio includes a mini foundation brush, a mini shading brush, a mini face brush and a miniature sized storage pouch.
This handy trio set consists of everything needed to apply an array of different makeup products, from eyeshadow to bronzer for a complete makeup look. Their small size and case means these high quality brushes make midday touch ups super straightforward, wherever you might happen to be.
If you are really struggling for space in your suitcase, and want an all-round beauty tool for applying your makeup, without the need for a brush kit, then a beauty sponge is a great alternative. Use either damp or dry depending on the coverage and finish you require.
The Beautyblender All About Face Collection is perfect for achieving any desired makeup look with half the products. This convenient kit contains three different sized sponges targeted towards specific areas on the face, such as all over for a smooth, flawless base - under the eyes and around the nose for contouring. Beautyblender has a fabulous reputation within the makeup industry, being a top choice amongst professionals and this kit is ideal for introducing beginners to the brand, and it’s also a great travel friendly option. There is a small blendercleanser solid included which allows you to keep your sponges in tip top condition whilst on the go, without the need for carrying unnecessary liquids.
