Travel light - and smart - on your next getaway and pack our must-have essentials to keep you looking gorgeous from the beach to the bar...
Jetting off this summer and looking for those travel essentials? These must have holiday beauty products are all you need to make sure you look gorgeous on your getaway. From multi-tasking moisturisers, to travel beauty kits and those clever serums that transform frizzy hair on humid days, these smart buys will make light work of packing for your holiday this summer.
Update your beauty bag with a whole host of specifically-designed products that will become fundamental to your routine. Smart swaps will make holiday life so simple: Invest in a BB Cream and leave your moisturiser and foundation at home, or lighten up your make-up bag and opt for a palette rather than individual pieces. These must have holiday beauty products will become staples in your every day routine and make holidays a breeze.
This product doesn't promise to give a no-effort frizz-free style, but what it does do is amazing. Cutting drying time in half, this clever cream relaxes and smooths the hair to make light work of blow drying your locks into a perfect 'do - even anyone who has never learnt to blow dry at home will be pleased with the end results.
Simply comb through sections of your hair, grab a round barrel brush and a dryer and get to work. Once you've used this product for five days in a row, your style will hold for three days straight - even in the most humid weather.
Use this BB cream as your holiday moisturiser, SPF, primer and foundation. You won't even need to finish off with a light dusting of powder thanks to the matte effect liquid that instantly minimises the look of pores for a flawless finish.
We've replaced our daily moisturiser with this SPF and now we'll be replacing our face sunscreen with it too. Eve Lom's SPF is suitable for all skin types and works against the free radicals harming your skin on that city break as well.
The new Tom Ford Eye and Cheek Palette has been designed with summer in mind and is the perfect piece to take away. Featuring everything you need to create a sultry seasonal look, from shimmering gold eyeshadow to a hot coral blusher, you need to snap this up now as it's limited edition and too good to miss.
We can't wait to get this slick gold and white case out and become the envy of our fellow holidaymakers this summer.
Guaranteed to last for a whopping 12 hours, this mascara promises to be 100% waterproof and smudge proof, so you can go from the pool to the bar without a second thought. Lashes are lengthened, separated and coated in the blackest black to open up your eyes and hide the holiday hangovers.
The delicious scent of monoi oil is worth the price tag alone, but this soothing oil-infused milk will become your new summer skin saviour, we promise.
There's no glitter or sparkle, just pure pigment to highlight your best feature. We choose Rose Pastelle for holidays in the sun and to add a hint of colour in the day, or to complement a sexy smokey eye at night.
Nails Inc use 'Plasticizer Technology' to give professional results every time, even for the most amateur manicurist. An extra wide brush and super-smooth formula makes for easy application, so you can take this away with you and get pampering by the pool.
Complement your tan with this neon pink version, Downtown.
A dry oil infused with six precious oils, discover how velvety soft your skin can be and how flawless you can look. Try combing through the hair to nourish and add a glossy finish to your style, or apply over imperfections and watch them disappear.
Apply Philip Kingsley's Swimcap to hair each morning and rest assured your locks are protected against UV rays, chlorine and salt water. This product was originally designed for Olympic swimmers, so you know you're in good hands.
Each packet contains an easy-to-use finger mitt for quick removal. One packet will do all ten nails, meaning you can travel really light with one or two sachets. Infused with lavender and aloe to condition nails, this formula is award-winning and will take off every scrap of polish, every time.
Plus, this cream is oil free and water (or sweat) resistant so won't transfer onto clothes or sink into your hairline.
Chantecaille Protection Naturelle SPF50 is an innovative powder that not only stops unsightly shine but also tops up your SPF as well. In an easy-to-carry brush that won't spill, extract too much product or leave any residue, this is a must for beach holidays, city breaks and nights out.
Apply all over for skin that literally glows with a healthy-looking radiance, or dab over your blusher for light-reflecting, razor-sharp cheekbones. Thanks to the moisturising and colour-correcting katafray bark extract, this is a handy little must-have to keep in your beach bag for perfect summer skin.
If you find your head gets overheated on holiday, spray this onto your roots: The salt will soak up any sweat and leave you cool - and give great volume and body as an added bonus.
Choose a matte, single-hue version, such as the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder to give the most natural-looking finish. Sweep over the top of your forehead and round to your cheeks in large 'C' shapes and brush lightly down the nose and on the chin for a subtle sunkissed glow.
As well as protecting and conditioning your tresses with added proteins and antioxidants, this must-have spray also helps your style to hold its shape - an essential in hot and balmy weather.
Keep them in your hand luggage and freshen up on the plane - remember, dehydrated skin and day-old make-up is not a good look for day one of the holiday.
If you love your lipstick too much, just pop this balm over the top to give a glossy shine and more intense colour.
A refreshing and light perfume that's pleasing to spray onto hot skin, this should be your new signature scent.
