The day is coming close! You’re finally getting ready to pack your bags and leave your day job… at least for a week, that is! It’s vacation time and you’re ready to hit the beach, enjoy the ocean and bask in the sunshine!
Personally, when I go on vacation, I love to enjoy my time worry free of what I look like, while still wanting to feel fabulous on my time off. This takes preparation, planning and even some previous pampering. So far I’m not complaining.
Today, I’m giving you my step by step guide to looking fabulous on vacation, while still being worry free!
Mani Pedi Time!
If you’re going to be on the beach, and most likely barefoot, you’re going to want to groom those feet of yours, especially if they’ve been neglected for a while. Manicures and Pedicures are always a great option! Enjoy the pampering of someone doing your nails as you sit back, relax, and think about the amazing time you’re going to have sipping cocktails by the ocean!
Running low on cash as you’ve just spent your money on your getaway? Not to fret- there are so many alternative at home options! If you don’t want to spend your money here are two great at home options.
Amopé has a wet/dry foot polisher that rids of all that dry skin build up you have on your heels! Use this after a shower to have smooth, soft feet for the beach!
Bio Sculpture has a great array of polish colours, with some great bright summer colours! Paint your nails at home while watching your favourite Netflix series!
Beautiful long lashes are all a girl desires. But, what happens if you can’t grow them on your own, and you’re not interested in having a mascara racoon circle around your eyes? Eyelash extensions are a great alternative!
With lashes that you don’t need to take off at the end of the day, you can enjoy those fluttery lashes without the worry! Lash extensions last 2-3 weeks without needed to refill them, so they’ll last your entire vacation! I went to Hair Gone Rogue and had an amazing experience, giving me a great confidence boost!
Self Tan Glow!
Having a faux tan is my most important necessity for vacation. There are so many harmful associations with baking in the sun, so I prefer to have my tan already there before vacation.
Not only does it give you a tan, self tanners can also make you appear more toned and well as gives you more youthful looking skin! If you’re running low on time, Tan on the Run will come to your door and give you a spray tan from the comfort of your own home! With a variety of colours and express tan options staying on anywhere from 1-4 hours depending on desired darkness, you can have that glowing tan just hours before getting on that plane.
As well, self tanners that you can do yourself are also a great option. We have some self tanner reviews on our website for you to look through here.
Brows on Brows
This one isn’t a necessity, although helps a lot in terms of getting ready time. Having microblading on your brows gives you beautiful, full brows, without the added makeup.
I went to Crista Nicole Beauty for my microblading and no longer need to spend the time filling in my brows, only to have the pool or ocean water wash it right off. You can see our full video on microblading here.
Don’t want to get microblading done just yet? Get your brows waxed at a local wax bar for a defined shape!
With a fresh set of nails, beautiful fluttery lashes, glowing skin and micro bladed brows, I couldn’t be more set for vacation! In fact, wish lashes, brows and a tan, I often don’t even feel the need to pack any makeup. Now you’re ready for your getaway and you have even more space to pack all the clothes you couldn’t squeeze into your suitcase before!
No matter what, it’s always important to feel comfortable in your own skin! Although, some additional pampering never hurt anybody.
Now, show off your new makeover to everyone else on the beach! Enjoy!
