How To Do Your Makeup When Traveling In 5 Steps
A good base will get at least 50% of your job done. It is vital to use something mattifying if you’re planning on being out for the entire day. Matte primers are also ideal for humid areas. Apply your chosen primer to your entire face, but especially around your T-zone. This is where you produce a lot of oils, so it is crucial to keep them in place. After your primer sets into your pores proceed further.
Women who have dry skin should stick with something which has illuminating properties. You can also apply this on top after your matte primer sinks in (3-4 minutes).
High coverage is a big no-no when you’re traveling. You shouldn’t worry about your face melting off during your trip. Instead, focus on enjoying the moments, and only wear something lightweight and sheer. A tinted moisturizer is a good idea since it is, well, tinted and moisturizing. Apply it with your fingers to places which demand the most coverage.
You can also dot only a bit of concealer onto some parts of your face and hide your wrinkles, undereye bags, and redness.
Lash extensions are ideal for your trips! They are feminine and long-lasting, as well as heat and waterproof. They are also wind-proof and cry proof, made to protect you from any external factors! You can wear them even if you’re planning on scuba diving, or enjoying your tanning moments! They can survive it all, as well as the plane delays, bus rides, and long walks.
The best part? They aren’t too expensive. They are also very low-maintenance, meaning that you can enjoy them no matter where you’re at. You can expect them to last and stay on for 2-3 weeks, which is just enough to cover the entire length of your holiday.
Tinted Lip Balm + Cheek
This product is great since it has a dual purpose. You can purchase a peachy or a pinky tinted lip and cheek balm and apply it to your lips and cheeks whenever in need of some color. This is very practical since it will allow you to tidy yourself up moments before you take some pictures. Dab the product in with your fingers and enjoy your selfies! Just make sure that your chosen product has coverage so that it shows the moment you put it on.
Lastly, it is very important to set everything in place. Although you may not be wearing a lot, a setting spray will give you hydration while pushing your products deep into each pore.
Use a mattifying setting spray if you have oily skin, and use an illuminating spray if you have dry skin.
Spritz it 3-4 times on top of the skin and you’ll be all good to go! You can also carry this makeup item with you (if you have it in a smaller bottle) and reach for it during the day. It will bring back the lost moisture while keeping your face makeup intact. It will also keep your face protected from the water & the sun, ideal for pool getaways.
