Spring Break season is here – is your beauty bag ready for the sun and sea? NorthPark Center has all the essentials for a beautiful and safe vacation in the sun.
Kiehl’s Since 1851, Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ ($38 or $61)
Sunburns are never a good look. But slathering on thick sunscreen can be a chore that leaves you feeling more than a little greasy. Go for a lightweight formula, like Kiehl’s Super Fluid Defense. In 1.7 oz. or 4.2 oz., this sunscreen is packed with antioxidant Vitamin E to help prevent free-radical damage. Cherry on top? It’s free of oil, fragrance, parabens and color additives.
Fresh, Sugar Sport Treatment Sunscreen SPF 30 ($25)
Now that you’ve got your body protected, don’t forget about the lips! Last summer, Fresh extended their must-have Super Lip range to include one with SPF 30 that can also be used all over your face, including around the eyes. It’s water resistant and provides extra hydration for those long days in the sun.
Origins, Cooling Moisturizer with Hawaiian Mineral Water ($33)
Splashing in the salt water and laying in the sand can leave your skin parched. After your post-beach shower, replenish moisture with this lightweight lotion fortified with Hawaiian Mineral Water. The blend of wild mint, spearmint and eucalyptus oils work together to soothe and cool down your skin.
Aveda, Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque ($27)
Just like your body, your hair needs a little TLC after being exposed to the elements for a few days. Aveda makes an intensive cream masque that moisturizes to restore the look of sun-exposed locks. The key ingredient, morikue protein, boosts hydration along with an indulgent aroma of organic neroli, ylang ylang and other pure flower and plant essences.
Sephora, NARS The Multiple Makeup Stick in Luxor ($39)
All-in-one products are key when traveling. The cult favorite Multiple Stick from NARS truly does it all – this cream-to-powder formula can be used to highlight, sculpt, and warm up your eyes, cheeks, and lips. Available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Sephora.
MAC Cosmetics, Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden ($27)
No glow yet? No worries! Fake it with MAC’s Bronzing Powder, a subtly tinted pressed powder that gives your skin sheer color with a touch of highlight. Lightly dust all over your face for a natural, sun-kissed look.
Nordstrom, Charlotte Tilbury ‘Hot Lips’ Lipstick in Bosworth’s Beauty ($34)
Avoid spending precious vacation hours in front of the mirror by going for a simple skin look and a pop of vibrant color on your lips.
MAKE UP FOR EVER, Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara ($24)
This mascara was originally created for performers who endure the rigors of stage lights and sweat, so you know it will stay put after spontaneous dips in the pool. It lays on color using an exclusive complex that envelops each hair with ultra-black, water-resistant pigments for look-at-me lashes.
Vineyard Vines, Canvas Abstract Leaf Large Zip Pouch ($58)
And of course, you need something to carry everything! This canvas pouch from Vineyard Vines will be right at home in any beach tote, with the contrasting yellow and blue hues.
