It’s time to get away. Wherever your destination, holiday beauty calls for only the essentials. Shake off excess baggage and streamline your makeup look for the journey you crave. Even if you’re not hitting the slopes in Colorado, lazing by the sea on the Amalfi Coast or getting back to nature in Tasmania – a girl can dream. Embrace a jetsetter’s attitude and let your routine take you there.

Ski trip – Aspen, Colorado, USA
All you need is your ski pass and a few cold weather beauty essentials. For a faux winter glow, fight the frost with products that focus on hydration. Alpha-H Multi-Perfecting Skin Tint makes a perfect snow-ready base. Even if leaving the lodge seems ambitious, your lips will be in need of some serious TLC. Use Blistex® Lip Conditioner SPF 15 to relieve chapped lips. Since your eyes and lips are the only things visible under all those warm layers, enhance them with Maybelline New York Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner and a few layers of Designer Brands Lash Extensions Water Resistant Mascara. A swipe of CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour balm in Pudgy Peony will take you to snow bunny perfection.
Mediterranean vacation – Positano, Italy
When you’re chilling seaside, there’s no time for full coverage. Aside from constant SPF application (obviously), maintaining a simple beauty routine with minimal product is the way to go. Post-swim, swipe ModelCo BRONZE bronzing powder across your cheeks, dab a hint of colour to your lips with Benefit Benetint and brush your brows up with Maybelline New York Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara. After dark, apply M.A.C Lustre Drops to your sun-kissed skin for a bronzed goddess glow. Add Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Color in Coral Crush to finish the look.
Nature-based escape – Tasmania, Australia
Get outside your comfort zone and go on an adventure. Visit the great outdoors and breathe in the crisp, fresh air. For an active holiday, you have to go close to barefaced. Wear Dove Protective Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 to moisturise and give a slight tint to skin. If you would like a little more coverage and a product that also offers high sun protection, try the BIODERMA Photoderm BB Cream SPF 50+. Add a touch of Almay Smart Shade CC Concealer + Brightener to brighten under the eyes and protect lips from the elements with Lanolips Tinted Balm SPF 30. ulta3 Clear Mascara will go undetected and can also be used to brush brows in place. Bring Arbonne Cosmetics Blush in Taffeta for a natural post-hike flush across the cheeks.
