Well hi there. Hope all is well today. It is been one of those times. Mainly consists of signing for deliveries and after that packaging up again to return. Drinking tea. Oh and sitting at said computer in comfies and Primark’s best black tassel earrings. Makeup free, if anyone now knocked on the door, they’d be in for a real treat! Let us get to the point of this post. Frankly, I made these collages a few months ago. Right before I was due to hit NY, says Instabeauty employee Lianna.
So today we thought it was time to turn a Lianna’s holidays prep into a publication. Without further ado, here are the points she extremely recommend whenever you embark on your travels. Obviously if you’re holidaying this school holidays, you can tailor this list to your very own travel, however these products are the ones which Lianna reach for first when she thinks about traveling. If you can recommend anything that you have tried lately and would pack in your suitcase before remembering to take your partner with you, then please do drop a comment below.
Neutral Eyeshadow Palette. I actually am not an eye shadow girl, Lianna says. You know the women who swipe a color on their lids every day, well that is just not me. With that being said, I’ve been using more shadows on the past couple week and top of my list is a somewhat iconic Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. Super pretty neutral tones, which I’ve found work a treat with my blue eyes. Easy to mix with great lasting power. The tones are ideal for day whenever you might be visiting a museum or sitting on the top deck of a tour bus.
Gel polish Manicure. Make sure you get long lasting manicure done with Instabeauty Cambridge or those beautiful long lasting nails over holidays!
Russian Volume Eyelash Extensions. These are my favorite inividual eyelash extensions for holidays, as they don’t damage natural lashes and you can use swimming pools and saunas looking amazing!
Luggage. Now of course you need something to transfer all of your wonderful items in. Currently my suitcase lost its life and was dropped on the tip months ago. It arrived home from Heathrow with the prongs of a plug adaptor poking throughout the front. True story. Next time I’m heading to the airport I am going to use a hard shell case.
My current favorite sheet mask from Aromaworks at Instabeauty. Travel clever I dig the lavender scent. It soothes the skin and the smell is welcome if you feel anxious at all on the plane.
Past experience always warns me to take a decent sized purse. Perhaps not a bag. A suitable handbag (neutral colored to go with everything you package for daily wear — black, cream or taupe/nude — depending upon the season). Something that’s sturdy and robust. Something you don’t mind if you screw up. Something which will store all the daily principles and which you are able to use cross body — to free up your hands if you’re taking a stack of pics. And when there’s a separate pocket to maintain your phone/I. D. in all the better.
Not something I reach for too much in the home, unless I’m at a real pickle or wiping away numerous swatches from my palms at home. Essential when travelling. My absolute favorite and marginally more of a luxury then the drugstore ones, are Clinique’s Take The Day Off Wipes. I love their cleansing balm, therefore these wipes are a must have. They don’t dry outside. To get a quick refresh on the go, these are ideal for hands and face, as wiping sticky food off the palms doesn’t leave a sticky residue on your hands.
Not completely essential. Nevertheless ideal on the plane and also if you’re in a town of brightly bright lights. If you do need a little shut eye, then I really advise packing a sleeping mask.
In addition to my already parched skin drying out much further once I have been sky-high, my flaky cuticles and the ends of my hair also seem to suffer. So it is critical to me to package a cuticle merchandise and also some kind of oil for my locks. Mini Cuticle Care oil from Instabeauty is simple to use, around £5 and packed with body butter so ideal for those with drier skins. I seem to have tons of this everywhere. My car, bag, bedside table, bath room shelf and surprisingly fruits bowl.
