It’s Spring (finally)! That means you may be leaving soon for a vacation in the sun to chill, but not be chilly. Before shoving every makeup product you own into your carry on,  I want you to know that there’s an easy way to travel lightly and still look amazing on your trip. Check out these packing list suggestions for simple, quick and fun beauty routines on spring break!


From restaurant-hopping to nightclubbing to lots of walking, spring break in a big city is going to take lots of endurance, so make sure you pack up travel-friendly beauty products that hold up under those downtown lights. Anything that protects skin and transitions your look from day to night is an absolute must when visiting cities that never sleep.

Here’s what you’ll need:


Camping, horseback riding and then a night of BBQ and line dancing: that’s a spring break in the country. Avoid long beauty sessions inside your tent. Keep your routine simple so you can enjoy everything nature has to offer while looking natural, too.

Here’s what you’ll need:


If you’re off to a beachy spot this year, make sure you stock up on sunscreen, sunscreen, and more sunscreen! There’s nothing worse than getting scalded on the first day of break and having to spend the rest of your trip buried under a hundred ice packs. Stay cool and cute with these sun-shielding, waterproof staples.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • COOLA Tinted Mineral Liplux SPF 30 : This conditioning lip balm protects your most sensitive skin with SPF 30 while delivering a sheer wash of creamy color. Add a little to cheeks, too for a fresh flush! 
  • COOLA Organic BB+ Cream SPF 30 : This broad spectrum tinted moisturizer offers weightless, water resistant coverage that fights signs of aging while it moisturizes and softens skin as you splash around. 
  • COOLA Body Sunscreen Spray SPF 30 : COOLA’s pocket-sized sunscreen spray will fit into your beach bag no matter how overstuffed it is. I love how this organic formula is packed with skin-nourishing antioxidants to keep skin supple and hydrated.
  • IT Cosmetics Tightline Waterproof Mascara Primer : As a waterproof primer, mascara and eyeliner all in one, Tightline makes beach eye makeup a breeze. Simply apply the spoolie to your lash base to create a liner effect and swipe out to coat strands in a conditioning serum for natural-looking fullness. 


Heading off to a tropical locale for vacation? (Lucky you!) For me, exotic destinations call for vibrant, bold, fun makeup. But still, you have to keep in mind the humid climate, not to mention the potential for sudden rain. So before you set sail, make sure your bags are packed with brightly colored, glow-inducing, humidity-beating products.
