It's Spring Break time, and even though we aren't in school anymore, we can't help but get caught up in a little mid-March vacay daydreaming. And since we're sure some of you will be lucky enough to jet off somewhere tropical this spring, we thought we'd share our favorite destinations and beach bag essentials with you.
My ultimate relaxation destination is Punta Mita, Mexico. To make sure I look my best at the beach, I always get lash extensions before a trip. The less maintenance and makeup I need to deal with while away, the better! In my beach bag, I keep a stash of products that serve multiple purposes: Becca Beach Tint and Julie Hewett Camellia Balm are two of my must-haves along with Chapstick and plenty of sunscreen. Chips, guac and a margarita are the only other things I need!
I love St. Lawrence Gap in Barbados - specifically Bougainvilla Beach Resort. Barbados is an amazing place to chill and recharge, and all you need to look perfectly sunkissed is a little tint or stain for the eyes, cheeks and lips! Stila Mango Crush Lip and Cheek Stain is gorgeous. I also adore Guava Beach Tint by Becca. Using your fingers, you can apply a small amount of either product to your eyelids, the apple of your cheeks and all over your lips. Tints and stains are great for the beach because they last for hours and many are water resistant. I also love to have my eyelashes tinted before any break so I don't have to think about mascara, when I'd rather be focusing on the island's famous fruit punch.
In my mind, there's no better place to get away from it all than Tahiti! Besides a good book, my beach bag is stocked with Kevyn Aucoin Isadore Cream Blush, my absolute favorite product from Blushington; as well as Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 for coverage while protecting against the sun's rays; and Julie Hewett Rose Water to keep my makeup going strong all day and to stay cool and fresh!
