Whether you’re heading out with your besties at the beach or hanging out with your fam in the mountains, there’s no reason why you can’t look gorge while on spring break. The best part? When you pack the right on-the-go products, you don’t have to bring your entire makeup and hair collection. In this case, a little goes a loooong way, while also fitting perf in your carry-on. YASSS!

Here’s your checklist for everything you need to bring for some easy breezy spring break beauty.
1. Facial Wipes

No one should deal with a serious skin regimen while on vacay. Simplify your beauty routine by buying a pack of multitasking facial wipes. Murad Cleansing Wipes ($10) are perfect for blemish-prone skin and act as a makeup remover, toner AND a facial cleanser.
From skiing to swimming, you’re going to need some protection from the sun. You’ll def need a water resistant sunscreen like Sun Bum ($10) that comes in a TSA-approved size. Bonus? It doesn’t clog pores!
3. BB Cream
A BB Cream is the answer to your beauty prayers while on vacay. It not only cuts down on prep time (so you’ll spend more time having fun than at the bathroom mirror) but it acts both as a moisturizer and a concealer — a must for any red-eye trip where you’re not getting many zzzz’s. Try Smashbox Travel-Size BB Cream ($19.50).
4. Makeup Palette
Packing your makeup bag just a whole lot easier — and lighter — with Lorac’s Pro To Go Eye and Cheek Palette ($38). With three shimmer and three matte eye shadows, two blushes, a bronzer and two brushes, you have more than enough variety to try out different looks while away.
5. Waterproof Mascara
It’s a good idea to switch from your everyday regular mascara to a waterproof version while on your trip. That way you’re covered whether you find yourself caught in a rainstorm in Seattle or swimming in the Caribbean. Luckily Too Faced Waterproof Mascara ($15) comes in a travel size.
You not only need an awesome lipstick that can last from the time you go through security to the time you hit the beach, but you also need one that will go with all of your outfits (because you can’t bring every single shade). The solution? Go for a matte lipstick in a neutral shade, like Tarte’s LipSurgence lip tint in Sweet ($11). The matte texture has staying power and the pink is perf for day and night.
There’s no reason why you shouldn’t wear a fave scent while you’re away. Just pick up one in a travel-sized package — like Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon Rollerball ($27). Not only will you love its perfect teeny-tiny size but its sweet-and-woodsy fragrance pretty much goes with every occasion.
8. Flat Iron
Don’t let your frizzies ruin your vacay. This tiny flat iron is exactly what you need to tame fly aways and to keep your hair always coiffed even during the wind, surf and sand. Sephora Collection Tame: Mini Flat Iron ($20).
