The Summer Series: Summer Travel Beauty Tips + Eazy Fashion Giveaway [Closed]

Hello lovely readers! Recently I just took a vacation out of town so I thought why not share my essential summer travel beauty tips to you guys.

Tip #1: Pre-organize and take your time to pack.
Packing in a hurry and cramming is a no-no, especially if you are travelling into somewhere you are not familiar to. First, take a sheet of paper and list down all the items that needed to be packed. Check the weather forecast as well if you will need lots of sunscreen or an umbrella perhaps. This way, you can also plan where to put your things or how many bags you need.

Tip #2: Pack light, pack smart.
Some basic toiletries are provided in the hotel, like shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, etc. If you cannot resist the urge to carry your own brand of toiletries, downsize them. Transfer them into a smaller and more travel friendly containers. Also, pack multipurpose products, such as petroleum jelly (can be used as lipbalm or skin relief for extreme climates). Personally, when I went out of town, I used my foundation as concealer, and my lipstick as my blush. Also, if you can avoid bringing brushes and use disposable sponges on your trip, that would also save space.

Tip #3: Separate your liquid/bottled products and protect your powder compacts.
If you can, use a ziplock or a reusable plastic bag for your liquid foundation. This way, if they spill, they will not mess up your entire suitcase. Also, if you can avoid bringing powder compacts and use loose powder (transferred in a small container of course) that would be awesome. But if you really need to, make sure to wrap them around with something to cushion it so it will not be shattered by unexpected impact.

Tip #4: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
Whether you are travelling by road or by plane, whether you are going to the beach or to the mountains, moisturizer is a very crucial part of your routine. Never, ever forget to moisturize your face. For my trip, I used my Celeteque Hydrolized Moisturizing Mist for my face and my EOS Lipbalm to moisturize.

Tip #5: Protect yourself from the sun.
Wherever you are going, sunscreen and other sun protectors are super important. If you plan to walk around all day, make sure that you wear SPF 50 or higher.

Tip #6: Skip foundation if possible.
If you can use a tinted moisturizer/sunscreen or BB cream, go for it. During summer, it is advisable to wear something light on the skin. If you cannot wear these things and really wanted the coverage of a foundation (like me), make sure that it doesn't feel heavy on the skin, its non-comedogenic and it's long lasting.

Tip #7: Go waterproof.
Needless to say, we all know that the scorching heat of the sun can melt your makeup in just a snap of your finger, so your best bet will be long lasting makeup, especially waterproof makeup. If you can skip mascara, that would be great but if not, use a waterproof one. Also, go for lip stains rather than lipgloss or lipsticks that you need to reapply and reapply.

Tip #8: Rock the "no makeup" makeup look.
Go as natural as you can. I think doing your eyebrows can make you look instantly made up, so you can just focus on that. If you can skip on the eyeliner and layers of eyeshadows, it will not only look good, your skin will thank you as well.

Tip #9: Get your beauty rest.
I think this is super important. Not because you are out of town and you wanted to explore the place doesn't excuse you for not giving your skin and your body a rest. Make sure to sleep for at least 6-8 hours, drink lots and lots of water and also keep your makeup on for no longer than 6 hours.

And I think the last tip that I could give you guys is HAVE FUN! It's summer and you are in a vacation, so enjoy it. If you are the type A kind of person that wants everything planned, make an itinerary and research about the place before you leave. For those who are more adventurous and laid back, you can always go with the flow and let your feet take you to wherever.

And speaking of travelling, I have been in contact with Eazy Fashion for a month now and we wanted to give you something so cute yet super useful when you are travelling.

Who doesn't love Pandas right? This 2-in-1 Panda Pillow with Small Blanket is super cute and handy to carry when you are travelling.

UPDATE: This giveaway will run for a week, from May 2 12:00 AM to May 9 11:59 PM. Winner will be announced the next day, May 10.
