as this beautiful weather continues a lot of people are opting to go on weekend mini breaks to enjoy the sunshine so I thought I would do a post on my "Top 5 Beauty Essentials For A Weekend Away". On a weekend away its usually important to travel light with most people just bringing one small bag, therefore most condense what beauty products they bring. This is something I definitely need to work on as I'm usually the person who will bring their whole makeup kit (and the kitchen sink) for just one night away!
1. Dove Compressed Deodorant:
This deodorant is amazing it has the same amount as a regular can but its compressed so therefore more room for you in your toiletries bag! If you've been following me for a while you will know I rarely use any other deodorant brand as I find they don't seem to work for me. Plus I don't really like the flowery powdery smells that other brands use, I prefer the fresher smells like Dove's lemon grass, cucumber and original!
2. Double Ended Makeup Brushes:
Double ended makeup brushes are a god send when on a trip where you have to pack light as your getting two for the price of one! I especially love these Blank Canvas brushes for my eyes, I can get a full eye look with just two brushes, then all I need to pack is a blusher brush and away I go. If I need to pack light things like foundation and concealer can be done with my fingers. These Blank Canvas brushes are great quality and really affordable so perfect for traveling.
3. John Frieda Volume Mini Hair Products:
Minis are definitely essentials for trips, not only do they look super cute but they are affordable and save a lot of room when packing! I love John Frieda products and these are amazing! Although my hair is thick its actually really flat and I often try different volumizing products to help give it some lift. These John Frieda mini's are excellent they smell AMAZING and the blow-out blow dry spray is great for adding a bit of volume (it even seemed to decrease the amount of time it takes for me to dry my hair).
4. A Makeup Palette:
A makeup palette is always a good room saving item when travelling especially if you can get a whole makeup look from one palette like this Benefit one "Cabana Glama". I previously did a post on this palette HERE! if you want to check it out. This palette includes eye shadows, a bronzer, a cheek product, it also includes a brush (so that's my blush brush sorted) and a concealer! Benefit do lots of other great sets so there's one to suit everyone and it means you don't have to pack as much in your makeup bag!
5. Burt's Bees Lip Balm:
A recent favourite of mine, this will ensure your lips stay moisturized and looking great. It also smells really good as its peppermint! I think this is definitely a travel essential as you can use it before bed to make sure you lips are looking their best and its perfect for top ups during the day as its a tiny stick that can be thrown into your handbag!
What are your travel/weekend away beauty Essentials?
