Whether you’ve planned a family Christmas retreat or are going on a surprise break to a lovely cottage in the countryside, make sure you’ve packed all of your beauty essentials. To prevent that have-I-forgotten-something feeling, we’ve put together a handy getaway makeup and beauty check list for you.
Gentle Face Wash
Whatever you do, don’t forget your face wash. Even if you don’t plan on wearing a lot of makeup during your Christmas getaway, your skin will need a daily cleanse.
If you are going somewhere where you can experience true winter, pack a waterproof mascara. Snow, blustering winds and constantly switching from cold outdoors and hot indoors may cause makeup mishaps. Luckily, all you need to do is switch your regular mascara for a waterproof one.
Lip Balm with SPF
During the winter months our lips may suffer a bit more. While during the summer months we focus on protecting our skin and lips from the sun, in winter we also have cold winds and freezing temperatures to contest with. Not to worry – simply pack a moisturising lip balm with SPF filters. This will prevent your lips from cracking and flaking as well as protect your pout from the harmful sun rays.
Save precious luggage space by packing multifunctional items. A tinted moisturiser will not only act as a hydrating cream, but also can double as foundation, freeing up some space in your makeup bag. Serious extra points if your tinted moisturiser comes with SPF.
Cheeks Meet Lips
While we are on the topic of versatile beauty products, a cheek and lip tint is a getaway makeup must-have guaranteeing you lovely rosy cheeks and kissable lips.
