Does that opening shot look suspiciously familiar? (Ali Harris, I’m talking to you!) To be fair, there were many times in my youth that my makeup bag far outweighed clothes in the suitcase weight battle. However, I might have just stopped shy of cramming in product… in favour of an even bigger makeup bag. Ahem.
Thankfully now I’ve got my capsule travel beauty kit down pat. My favourite products in mini sizes makes for a much happier holiday; they’re easier to fit in, there’s the possibility of finishing a few whilst I’m away plus the added convenience of being able to fit them in my beach bag once I’ve landed. Boom.
So to distract myself from the BIBLICAL weather currently battering the UK, I’ve called on my 3 favourite beauty stores to edit down the ultimate capsule travel beauty kit for all you lucky so-and-sos departing for warmer climes…
This summer Space.NK have upped their game by launching a consignment of travel minis in store and online. Navigable under their respective beauty categories (think makeup v. haircare, rather than in one ‘travel store’ which would perhaps be a lot simpler to shop) they have some fabulous little beauties which will work in your handbag or on holiday. Make sure you join the N.dulge loyalty scheme to earn points as you shop.
Isn’t Boots everyone’s last-minute holiday beauty haven? I say boycott the same old airport mini selection though; get organised and there are some gorgeous little numbers to be had in advance of your departure. Yes, they may be a little more expensive but isn’t that what you’ve been saving up those Advantage Card points for?
I keep coming back to this site as they really do curate the very best in beauty. You won’t find complete brand ranges here, only individual products that the Cultbeauty team have cherry-picked for their outstanding performance. You know that whatever you’re buying on this site has been seriously vetted by the professionals.
