With domestic and international travel rules slowly easing down, it is no wonder that most of us are itching to take a vacation ASAP. And if this will be your first holiday post-lockdown, we are sure you are looking forward to clicking a gazillion pictures for your Instagram feed. Which means taking your trusted beauty kit along with you is a must.

But if you plan to travel light, figuring out what products to carry and which ones to leave behind can be quite a task. Amirite? Well, not anymore because that’s exactly what we are going to help you out with today! Ahead, four cool multitasking makeup products that you need to add to your vanity right away for looking dope on vacation without spending hours in front of the mirror.


01. CC cream

CC cream

No one needs a heavy, full coverage foundation while on vacation, but you definitely need to pack a lightweight skin tint such as a BB or CC cream. Apart from the fact that it helps hide minor skin issues, this is also a great product to give your skin that lovely vacation glow without looking too made up. Pick one that comes with in-built SPF for sun protection, so you’re not wasting time layering multiple products instead of exploring cute insta-worthy cafes on vacay.

02. Brown eye pencil

Brown eye pencil

If you have never used a brown eye pencil before, we suggest you do so RN. Especially great for a vacation, a brown eye pencil helps provide a soft definition to your eyes without looking too stark or jarring. Additionally, a brown eye pencil also works really well to fill in your brows for a natural look.

BB picks: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Classic Brown


03. Lipstick


Lipstick has to be one of the most non-negotiable products in any holiday makeup kit. It helps pucker up your pout and brighten your face in an instant. But apart from this, lipsticks are also multitaskers. Swipe a little on the apples of your cheeks for an instant flush of colour. You can even swipe the same lip colour on your eyelids for a quick monochrome makeup look.

04. Powder highlighter

Powder highlighter

Another multitasking product that we feel every makeup kit totally include is a powder highlighter. Apart from delivering a beautiful natural glow, highlighters can also be used as a quick eyeshadow or an inner corner highlight to add some more zing to your look.
