Helpful Travel Beauty Hacks
As a girl, you want to look at your very best regardless of where in the world the day may find you – but for some traveling chicks out there, beauty and constantly dragging around your luggage don’t exactly match.
The good news? Things really don’t have to be that way. In fact, you can stay beautiful, shining and absolutely drop-dead-gorgeous without having to carry your entire bedroom with you. How? Here are some helpful travel beauty hacks:
Pack outfits, not clothes
Pack inter-changeable outfits you know you look great in. Make a list of the basics you will need according to your destination’s weather and see what you can do to make the most of what you’re packing. As an example for a warm-weather destination, you could pack one pair of jeans that work with everything, a few t-shirts, a button-down casual shirt, a light dress, a cardigan, a jacket, a scarf and two pairs of shoes (a sporty one and a more casual one).Make sure they all match with each other and that you can easily maintain them no matter how long the trip may get (e.g. go for clothes that are hard to wrinkle and easy to wash and dry).
Maximize your beauty bag
There are certain products you surely feel you cannot live without. For some, it may be the favorite mascara. For others, the perfect shade of red lipstick you wear every day. Whatever it is, maximize its potential by going for products that can be used for multiple purposes. For instance, a jar of coconut oil can be a great moisturizer, a fantastic hair conditioner and a really amazing sun lotion too. Likewise, there are tons of products with double purpose (e.g. lipstick you can use as blush, mini-palettes that include all the makeup products you may need, etc.).
The jewelry problem
Of course, you won’t want to pack away all of your jewelry – and especially if they’re made from precious metals, with gemstones, and so on. Instead, you could opt for one or two pair of cheap, but gorgeous earrings and one or two statement necklaces. Pieces like this can instantly “up” your fashion game even if everything you’re wearing are sneakers, jeans and a blank grey t-shirt – so they are more than worth cramming into your luggage.
Learn to go chord-less
…and even better, completely hot tool-less. It may feel that you can’t get through your day without that curling iron – but good news, you can simply tie your hair up in a bun when you go to sleep and wake up with perfect beach curls. Likewise, you don’t need to straighten your hair every day – it’s really bad for its texture and packing the straightener can be quite difficult too. Instead, use quality conditioners and a smart de-tangling brush to make your hair look smooth and silky.
For every beauty/travel problem, there’s a solution – and the secret lies in always maximizing and doubling the power of your not-so-large luggage. Smile and enjoy your traveling – truth be told, an honest smile really is the best accessory for every woman in the world!
