How To Pack 3 Vacation Looks In 1 Makeup Bag

by Stephanie Montes

Ever feel like packing your vacation beauty essentials is far more difficult than it should be? Let’s be honest, do you really need to lug around 5 lipsticks for a 3-day weekend? We’re guilty of it too but this Memorial Day weekend, we’re going in with a plan. Here, these 3 makeup looks are perfect for every activity on your vacation agenda and all can be done without packing more than 9 products. This just goes to show that less really is more.

Here's What You Need This Weekend

For: A Day By The Pool

Lounging poolside shouldn't require a ton of makeup. Apply an SPF primer on your face and blend a concealer on problem areas to make your skin look flawless. A bronze colored eye shadow, along with a few swipes of waterproof mascara, paired with a wash of color on the cheeks and some faux freckles are all you need to look and feel effortless–as you should.

What To Pack

For: A Day Of Sightseeing

Apply the same primer and concealer under a veil of foundation. Blend a dark brown shadow in the crease of your eyes and add a coat of mascara. For a day of exploring, why not try a bold lip? Make it last longer by setting it with a translucent powder.

What To Pack

For: A Night On The Town

Use your primer, concealer and foundation to create a flawless complexion. Blend dark copper and burgundy eye shadows on the lids to make your eyes pop. Add a swipe of brown liner on the lower lash line and apply multiple coats of mascara. Finish the look with a mattifying powder and a nude pink lip color.
