We live by the philosophy of ‘to travel is to live’. Taking some time out from the monotony of everyday life and escaping to scenic places is de-stressing and so much fun, amirite? But since vacays also mean a dozen selfies, you don’t need to lug around your entire vanity to look picture perfect every time. To help you travel light and look on point in all your vacation selfies, we’ve put together a list of near-genius travel makeup hacks that you must try on your next vacay. Excited to know what they are? Read on…


01. Turn to CC cream with SPF

Turn to CC cream with SPF

We want you to look effortlessly gorgeous while also shielding your skin against sun damage while on vacation. That's where a good SPF-infused CC cream like the Lakmé 9to5 CC Complexion Care Cream comes into play. Turning to this CC cream can help you get that glam of makeup plus the goodness of skincare and protection of sunscreen. With SPF 30 in its formula, this cream conceals, moisturises and evens out your skin to make it look perfect without much effort. The best bit is that it is available in four shades that are suitable for all Indian skin tones.


02. Trust dry shampoos for your hair

Trust dry shampoos for your hair

Dry shampoos are life saviours while travelling! Since we’re always on the go while on vacation, our hair does get all greasy and limp. But who’s got the time to wash it daily? That’s why you need a good dry shampoo like the Dove Coconut Dry Shampoo in your tote while on holiday. This shampoo helps refresh your hair between washes by absorbing all the oil and also adds oodles of volume to your mane. What we love is the tropical scent of coconut and sweet lime that it lends the tresses, adding to the vacation feels!


03. Keep a lip balm handy

Keep a lip balm handy

If your lips tend to turn dry and flaky while on vacation, it can be due to the lack of hydration, weather change or simply because of no lip care from your end. So, we suggest you keep the Vaseline Lip Tins Cocoa Butter handy. This lip tin will ensure your lips remain moisturised, nourished, and healthy. Infused with the goodness of cocoa butter, this lip tin is formulated with specialised petroleum jelly that helps lock in the moisture and lends your lips a lovely shine.


04. Tame your tresses

Tame your tresses

Frizzy, tangled hair is a common issue that we face while travelling. You can blame the humidity or the lack of proper hair care for this. But fret not, we have the perfect solution for this conundrum of yours — the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Serum. Formulated with the goodness of camellia oil, this hair serum tames frizz, detangles your hair and lends a glossy shine to your tresses.


05. Keep your makeup kits light with multipurpose makeup

Keep your makeup kits light with multipurpose makeup

Makeup is love, but travelling with too much of it can be quite a chore. That’s why you need multipurpose makeup products that can help you travel light. For instance, you can use the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Colour in Rouge Satin for both your lips and cheeks. Similarly, the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit can help you both bronze and highlight your cheeks in one go. You get the drift, right? So, invest in multi-purpose makeup and travel with ease!
