Your holiday hit list
Tell me if this sounds familiar: you’re going on holiday and you literally can’t wait. You get your suitcase out, get your clothes together and start to pack – and all of a sudden you find yourself in a very tough situation. The type of situation that leaves you feeling hot with panic. You call one friend after the other asking for advice, but the fact that they all give you different answers just makes things worse. Your head starts overflowing with different holiday scenarios and you wonder if excess baggage costs are really as high as everyone makes out…
If you haven’t yet guessed what I’m going on about, I’m talking the common crisis every beauty junkie is bound to face at some stage of their lives – that is, which cosmetics to take on holiday and which to – gasp – leave behind.
It may sound simple enough, but take it from someone who’s been there (way too many times) – it can cause even the most levelheaded of girls to lose it on the bathroom floor.
And since we all know that too much stressing and sobbing will only leave us with puffy eyes, wrinkles and rivers of mascara running down our cheeks, we thought we’d provide a solution. So get your pen and paper ready, because we’re about to reveal the essential cosmetic companions – for any type of trip…
