Go­ing on a week­end get­away and only tak­ing a carry on? Go­ing to be stay­ing in mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions and only want to take the ba­sics? When trav­el­ing it’s al­ways best to not over­pack, es­pe­cially when it comes to beauty prod­ucts, which can tend to add a lot of weight. Here is a list of my top styling es­sen­tials for hair and makeup to get the most out of the prod­ucts you choose to bring and can eas­ily fit into your beach bag.

MAKEUP

If you plan to be on the beach or at the pool dur­ing your stay, wa­ter­proof is the way to go. This will al­low you to en­joy your cock­tail pool­side with­out the worry of your makeup run­ning. If you can find op­tions that are both wa­ter­proof and con­tain an SPF that is al­ways a plus. These are a few of my go-to's:

SKIN

When it comes to your skin the most im­por­tant is sun pro­tec­tion and hy­dra­tion. These are some of my fa­vorites:

HAIR

I rec­om­mend get­ting a blowout or blow dry­ing your hair your­self the night be­fore you travel. It’s rec­om­mended to sham­poo ev­ery 2-3 days de­pend­ing on your hair type, tex­ture and the ac­tiv­i­ties you are plan­ning on do­ing. A dry sham­poo can be used on day two and three to keep your blow out longer and add vol­ume. This will come in handy es­pe­cially if you plan on do­ing a lot of walk­ing.

HAIR TIP: IF YOU ARE GO­ING TO BE IN THE WATER AND HAVE HIGH­LIGHTS OR COLOR TREATED HAIR, TRY TO AVOID GET­TING IT WET AS THE CHLORINE AND SALT WATER CAN FADE COLOR AND BE ES­PE­CIALLY DRY­ING. IF YOU MUST, TRY WET­TING YOUR HAIR BE­FORE­HAND WITH FRESH WATER AND AP­PLY­ING CON­DI­TIONER, LEAVE IT IN SO THAT WHEN YOU DO GO IN THE WATER IT WON’T AB­SORB ANY SALT/CHLORINE.

Kat Von D Tat­too Liner, is a liq­uid eye­liner with a slim felt tip for pre­cise ap­pli­ca­tion. Achieve the per­fect winged look with this wa­ter­proof and fade re­sis­tant eye­liner. This is a great choice if you plan on do­ing any wa­ter­sports, just skip the mas­cara and wear eye­liner.$20, Sephora

This lip balm, which is is or­ganic and cru­elty-free, con­tains car­nauba wax (re­hy­drates to pre­vents chap­ping) and rasp­berry but­ter (helps im­prove skins elas­tic­ity) to de­liver amaz­ing mois­ture.$12, Coola

Neu­tro­gena Makeup Re­mover Cleans­ing Tow­elettes-Hy­drat­ing.Wash the day away. These are great for re­mov­ing all of your wa­ter­proof makeup in the evening but also su­per re­fresh­ing when used in the morn­ing.$8, Neu­tro­gena Aveda con­trol force hair­spray. This is my hair­spray of choice. The aerosol spray has a strong­hold and is great for fly­aways.

Most ho­tels pro­vide sham­poo and con­di­tioner but they are not al­ways the best qual­ity, I sug­gest bring­ing the sham­poo you are cur­rently us­ing and plac­ing in a travel con­tainer. If you are tak­ing a carry on you will need to use 3.4oz con­tain­ers and have them all fit into a quart sized bag. A great al­ter­na­tive to liq­uid sham­poo is a sham­poo bar. These con­cen­trated sham­poo bars are great for the en­vi­ron­ment and great for trav­el­ing. You can find many on­line, I hap­pen to like Seanik fromlush. This bar gives you great vol­ume.$12, Lush
