Packing for a trip can be a daunting task. What hair products should you bring? Do you really need a flat iron, blow dryer and a curling iron? What do you do with all those liquids?!
Well, fear no more! We've teamed up with Veluxe executive and pro makeup artist, Sana Cordeaux to give you the scoop on how to stay fresh on a long day's journey to simple hacks that make packing for vacay seem like a simple task.
You ran out of liquid liner while traveling and don’t have time to go out and buy a new one.
When you are in-between products, use an angle brush and your mascara. That’s right, your mascara. Dab the brush onto your mascara wand and use it as eyeliner. Not only will it do the trick, but it’ll hold you over until you get back home to buy a new liner.
Unruly brows and you forgot your tweezers at home.
When things really get out of hand, fill your brows in with a brow pencil to help better define the shape. Then use a cream concealer on your brow bone to cover any stray hairs. This trick will minimize the appearance of your overdue bushy brows.
Love the look of an easy sleek ponytail but fly aways and baby hairs are your worst enemy when on the road.
Instead of using a comb or brush to smooth back fly aways, use a clean toothbrush. The density of these thin bristles will tame and tuck away any loose hairs. Keep it in your purse for quick touch ups and you will always be left with a smooth chic ponytail.
Constantly losing hair pins and hair ties while on travel.
Keep your bobby pins and hair ties in a Tic-Tac container to keep from losing them. The container will easily store in your makeup case.
Hate smelling like a perfume factory when you board the plane just to have it completely disappear by the end of the flight.
In order to get perfume to last all day and all night without being overwhelming, take some chapstick and apply it to your wrists and on the side of your neck to create a sticky base for your perfume. Spray these areas for long lasting results. With this trick, you don’t have to apply nearly as much with your initial application.
Don’t have time to style your hair every day when you are traveling.
Get a fabulous blowout before you leave for your trip. A good blow dry should last up to three days and all you will need to do is maintain it with some dry shampoo.
Can’t live without your hair gels, shampoos, and hair oils.
Bottles of shampoo, gel, and other liquids can be bulky to pack, and of course, you need to stay within the 3 oz rule for anything you want to carry onto a plane. Repurpose old contact cases and fill them with your must have gels, oils, and shampoos. Each container is perfect for a one-time use. It will cut the bulk and ensure you stay within TSA guidelines.
