Beach Bag Beauty Essentials

It's that time of year again: Spring Break! The ultimate excuse to take a much needed vacation and escape to somewhere tropical to soak up the sun. Don't hit the beach unprepared this season. Here are 5 beauty products to pack in your spring break beach bag!

# 1 Sunscreen
It goes without saying that if you're planning to spend time in the sun you need to protect your delicate skin. Peter Thomas Roth's Clini-Matte All Day Oil-Control SPF 20 is a sheer sunscreen that helps keep skin in check while providing UVA/UVB protection. The formula is oil and fragrance free and absorbs instantly.

#2 Super Easy Make-up
When you're on vacation you want to spend your time on the beach and not in your hotel room getting ready. Bring along an easy make-up kit that contains all the essentials like the Nars 'Sea of Love' set (pictured above). This set contains all the Nars cult favorites including The Nars Multiple stick (which can be used on lips and cheeks), a mini blush in 'Super Orgasm', a mini lipgloss, and a full size Illuminator in Laguna which has a beautiful golden shimmer.

# 3 A Mist to Avoid Meltdowns
And speaking of make-up, what good is spending time primping if your make-up won't stay put? To avoid make-up melt downs try Make Up For Ever's Mist & Fix travel sized spray that works to set all types of makeup and prolongs hold, even under extreme conditions. Enriched with chitosan, a marine algae extract, this makeup fixer spray protects skin against external damage caused by temperature changes, pollution, and other possible irritants.

# 4 A Sweet Scent
For a fun, flirty fragrance this spring try Ocean Lounge by Escada. With notes of plum, pear nectar and petal sorbet this fragrance is the perfect way to top off a sweet spring dress.

#5 Airbrush Bronzer

Last but not least, one of the products I never go on vacation without is Sally Hansen's Airbrush legs. Available in 4 shades this water-resistant, lightweight leg makeup is perfect for hiding imperfections on your legs! There's a good reason why celebs and top make-up artists swear by this product: it's amazing, affordable and it works.
