I don’t know about you, but for me summer means random weekend trips, visits home, and beach trips. Packing a bag can be difficult and time-consuming especially when you don’t know what to bring and leave behind. To make the packing process a bit easier, I’ve rounded up eight products you need to pack this summer.
Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner: One of my favorite ways to use this toner is after I wash my face in the morning. I pour some toner onto a cotton round and swipe it onto my face. It gets rid of any extra makeup residue left behind and leaves my face feeling clean, refreshed, and ready for makeup.
Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer: Being lightweight and having SPF 15, Olay’s Moisturizer is perfect to wear under your makeup in the summer. I apply the product and then wait about 10-15 minutes before putting makeup on.
Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer: Everyone gets those dark circles, especially if you’re staying up late the night before with friends. Tarte’s concealer is a lifesaver for those “designer bags.” It has an insane amount of coverage and is perfect to toss in your bag this summer. You can definitely avoid the cakey look by using a small amount of product.
E.l.f. Cosmetics Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara: I bought this mascara to hold me over in between purchases of my high-end mascara and ended up falling in love with it. It separates, lengthens, and adds tons of volume to your lashes. Plus, the waterproof formula is perfect for the summer months. Oh, and did I mention it’s only $3?
Batiste Dry Shampoo: I can’t be bothered to wash my hair every day, especially in the summer. This product will easily become your lifesaver. It leaves my hair feeling refreshed, clean, and ready for a new day of adventures.
Moroccanoil Texture Clay: I love the tousled beachy waves look for my hair and this product gives me just that. I take a tiny amount, rub it in between my hands, and distribute it through freshly curled hair. It holds my curls in place while also adding that beachy texture.
IT Cosmetics Naturally Matte Eyeshadow Palette: This palette features a wide variety of shades that can help you achieve any look. These eyeshadows are all matte except one shade called Transforming Pearl, which transforms any of the shades into a pearl finish. The shadows are soft and extremely easy to blend. However, if you want something more travel-friendly, try the Naturally Pretty Essentials Matte Eyeshadow Palette.
