Unsung Beauty Heroes of the Krasey Kruise


*Side Note: It has kind of become a thing for me to attach krasey to everything I do, hasn’t it? For the sake of consistency, let’s call the vacation I just took the krasey kruise, k?*

Anywho, when it comes to packing for a vacation, light is typically the way I want to go. Having travelled enough times in the past year to have it down to a science, I know what I will need and I need what will work. Really, this post is all about the beauty loves that I’m obsessing over (from standard to limited) that I couldn’t stand to be without for a week.

UD Gwen

Urban Decay Everything, Especially the Gwen Collection

Urban Decay and I go wayyyy back, from my first ever high-end purchase ever made 15 years ago (Gash lipstick, in case you were wondering). That being said, the lipsticks and liners from the much-praised Gwen Stefani collaboration got a lot of face time, if you will. Special shout out to the Naked Smoky palette and 24-7 liners, too – which I wore every.single.day.

Rocking Rock-Steady

Secret Outlast Xtend Deodorant

I know, I know, packing deodorant is kind of a no-brainer, right? Well, Secret is the brand I reach for when I know it’s going to get hot and humid. Their new Outlast Xtend kept me fresher than a daisy, on the beach and off.

Beach Handstand

Australian Gold Sunblock

Australian Gold Sunblock

Speaking of the beach, sunblock is an absolute MUST. Australian Gold is the brand I’ve been reaching for the most. I especially love the sunscreen with instant bronzers, which keep me looking bronzed and glowy, without having to bake myself in the sun.

Beachwaver S1

Being on a boat is no excuse to have a bad hair day. Given the fact that I’m a complete hair styling dunce, the Beachwaver S1 is an absolute lifesaver when it comes to taming my long unruly mane into the most sensuous loose waves. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s the only hot tool I need whenever I go anywhere. Those who coveted the Beachwaver Pro but lamented the price tag will be happy to know that S1 is only $129 – much less than the original, without sacrificing the original’s quality or style. You can get your own at Ulta!

These are my vacationing beauty must-haves. Share some of yours in the comments!
