It’s nearly that time of the year when our Instagram feeds fill up with sunny escapades of our nearest and dearest in Europe.
If you’re one of the lucky babes who have a Mediterranean vacay booked this year, we’re just a little bit envious. While it seems like everyone you know is enjoying cocktails and Instagramming the Santorini sunset, the good news is that Israel's summer is just around the corner. While you may not be officially on vacay, the antidote is that you can still enjoy vacay-like beauty while you bar hop Tel Aviv in the sunshine. A vacay is all about relaxing and taking time to refresh and renew from the usual hustle and bustle of everyday life. The best way to do that is with a simple, yet Euro-worthy makeup routine that will have you feeling and looking nothing short of ah-mazing. Here are the vacay beauty products you need to soak up the sun and enjoy nothing but good vibes all vacay long.
Dual purpose beauty is always a good idea
Keeping your beauty essentials light on your face and in your luggage is a hard task for any babe to master. The trick? Investing in products that multitask like a pro. The Bali Body BB Cream is the epitome of a double-duty godsend. Not only does it provide a perfect dewy glow but it is your primer, foundation, anti-aging skincare and SPF all in one. Invest in a cream blush that can be used on your cheeks as well as a lip stain for a natural pink-hued pout when you’re grabbing a cocktail at the beach. Another genius way to save precious space in your makeup bag is by investing in eye pencils that can also double as an eyeshadow. The NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are our favourites for an effortless and easy holiday eye.
Embrace your natural locks
Styling your hair in the humidity can be a never-ending and unfortunately always, losing battle. Try something different and put the hair dryer away in lieu of a high quality hair serum. Redken No Blow Dry Styling Cream is a great product to throw in your beauty bag for the days you would rather spend your time at the pool then in your bathroom with an aching arm blow drying away. The styling cream makes it super quick to air dry your hair with a blow dry look, sans the time. Vacay is all about embracing your natural beauty after all.
Ditch your mascara like Beyonce
You can officially stop checking your face for running mascara babes, Beyonce has the vacay hack of queens (literally). Revealing that she recently applied lip balm to her lashes while on holiday. “I used (it) to prime my lashes before curling,” she said. “It was like a natural mascara. It made the lashes hold the curl and look shiny.” If it’s good enough for Queen B right? Grab your Coconut Lip Balm for shiny lips and eyelashes all vacay long.
Beach to bar essentials
No vacay is complete without your favourite Bali Body tanning oil. Whether you like fruity, chocolate or natural flavours, there is a tanning oil type for every babe. Not only will they give you your best natural tan yet, but they will keep your skin soft and hydrated while they’re at it. When you’re ready to hit the bar, swap your favourite tanning oil for the Shimmering Body Oil for a flawless shimmering glow that no vacay is complete without.
#BBProTip: Buy a bundle and save. If you need to stock up on multiple BB products for your vacay, a Bali Body bundle will not only save you money but keep you glowing no matter what your European escape throws at you.
Enjoy your trip babes, we can't wait to see you live your best life.
