The one thing I love about a prospective Spring or Summer getaway is the easy feat of packing. Heavy boots and thick wool knits are replaced with weightless bikini’s and summer sandals – making me more carefree. Streamlining my cosmetic bag is imperative before traveling. After all, summer screams for simple, hassle-free hair and skin. I’ve listed some of my favorite beauty products to lighten the load when on vacation and help achieve that relaxed, effortless look – minimal makeup, tousled hair and a sun-kissed glow from sand to sunset cocktails. Because simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
