5 Beauty Tips for Traveling to a Tropical Destination

1. Wear Lots of Sunscreen

If I had to choose only one beauty item to take with me, it would be sunscreen. Sun damage can ruin your skin, especially on your face. And don’t forget to reapply! I’ve made this mistake before and regretted it later when my entire body felt like it was on fire.

2. Waterproof Eyeliner/Mascara is your Friend

The humidity makes everything run so waterproof is essential. You also don’t want your makeup to turn into raccoon eyes when you’re going in and out of the water. My favorite is the Sephora Collection Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner.

3. A Bright Lip Can Do Wonders

If you want to create a dramatic look for an evening out with just one item, adding a vibrant lipstick color can dress up and change your entire look. The Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo is perfect because it’s travel sized and has two amazing bright colors in one tube.

4. Braids, Headbands & Top Knots

You know those people who claim they have better hair on the beach because of the salt water? That’s definitely not me. When it’s so hot and humid I want my hair off my shoulders and out of my face, especially when I’m in the water.

5. Embrace the Simplicity

Traveling is the perfect time to take a break from your regular routine. Enjoy having a simpler beauty routine and having more time for experiencing and exploring!
