I hate packing for vacations. I stress over all the different scenarios I might wish I had brought this and that, to the point that I overpack with butloads of clothes I never end up wearing. The same goes with beauty products and especially makeup. Am I really going to want to to a smokey eye to a beachside, picnic table resteraunt in the Carribean? No. Vacations are really about feeling beautiful and free and not wanting to spend all that extra time fluffing and primping in the morning when I could be relaxing. In saying that, I still want to look and feel beautiful, however there are products we can use to minimize time but also ensure our skin, hair and makeup are well looked after and not being neglected. Vacations are no reason to totally let yourselves go ladies…
