Summertime is virtually synonymous with vacation season. Why not look your most beautiful while you jet set?

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite beauty essentials while on vacay to share with you all. So whether you’re headed to Miami, LA, or Cancun, I’ve got you covered in the beauty department.

Makeup remover wipes

These are perfect for the woman-on-the-go!  Makeup remover wipes are always-pre-moistened, and alcohol free. There are also great for after a long night of partying (when you don’t feel like washing your face). Try MAC Cosmetics Wipes to refresh your skin and swipe away makeup.

Dry shampoo

I like to call dry shampoo one of the best-kept secrets, especially for girls on vacation. If your hair gets oily between washes, dry shampoo is great for getting rid of excess oil and dirt. Dry shampoo also gives hair amazing volume in the meantime. Try Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo from Sephora for the ultimate time saver.


Of course, if you want to have fun in the sun this summer, sunblock is a must. For a great product that won’t clog your pores, try Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40 from Nordstrom. 

Bold lip color

Coupled with bronzer (see: How to Achieve a Natural Makeup Look for Summer), a bold lip color equates to a simple, albeit gorgeous, look while on vacation. One of my absolute favorite universally flattering lip colors is Laura Mercier Bing Cherry Lipstick, available at Belk.
