We bring you our top seven must-haves for your travel bag.
1 Sun protection: Always carry a waterproof sunblock with SPF 50 or more, according to your skin type. Apart from a sunscreen, its imperative to keep an after sun exposure skin soothing lotion or gel.
2 Cleansing agents: To keep your skin free from dirt and grim, stock a good face wash according to skin type and make up cleansing wipes for face and eyes.3 Visage care: Do not forget to keep a toner that suits your skin type, a small pack of cotton swabs and a face moisturiser. While travelling, stick to only tried and tested brands or products.
4 Lip stains: While travelling, lip balm, long stay lip glosses in a bright pink tone, one neutral shade and one brown hue are a must. For formal dinners, keep long stay lipstick shades in reds or maroons with lip liners.
5 Eye spy: Since you are out of your home, it’s safe to keep an eye liner or kajal or both (a black mascara, a face compact, a neutral colour blusher and a neutral eye shadow of your choice and skin type).
6 Base coats: Chose from a skin glow enhancer, a strobe cream or a skin illuminating cream. You can use this as makeup base, or use it alone on bare skin for natural, young looking skin to create a picture perfect look that looks natural.
7 Handy packs: Remember that all your creams, gels, and lotions should not be more than 100 ml. So either buy small packs or transfer into small bottles. And lastly, a small perfume to keep you happy all through your vacation.
