We live for long weekends. And we’ve finessed our beauty packing down to a fine art, getting more efficient/ruthless with every getaway. But packing light doesn’t mean compromising on quality or trading down to the random disposable sachets that fall out of the pages of Vogue. Here, 7 of our favourite travel essentials to get you (respectably) through the long weekend.

1

THE ONLY WAY TO FLY

Bring on the long weekend, if only so we can finally flaunt Byredo’s divine new leather travel case like a boss in the Business Lounge. The beautiful fragrance case is an instant upgrade for your favourite Byredo mini fragrance vial—or makes for the perfect gift for a frequent-flying fragrancephile.

THE MULTI-TASKER

Do make room for this mainstay. Truth be told, we keep Stila Convertible Colour on hand at all times, not just for vacays. Smudge a little on your lips, tap the excess on to the apples of your cheeks, and blend upwards towards your ears. And tah dah…rosy, glowy, face-freshening goodness.

NO HOTEL SHAMPOO FOR YOU

Your hair deserves so much better. Be prepared and don’t leave home without the 3More Inches Travel Pack which houses three mini versions of their best sellers; the hydrating Pre-Wash Treatment (note to self: set aside a few extra minutes of treatment time for best results), as well as a silky Shampoo and Conditioner.

ESSENTIAL LUXURY

Bless Chantecaille for brainstorming our beauty needs and thinking up the Chantecaille Travel Essentials Kit. It features four of their best-sellers and all we need for a getaway. Our favourite find is the soothing Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask to use during stolen solo moments and for its pay off of softer, smoother skin.

5

EYE CANDY

Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Matte made the cut because it’s compact and has the perfect edit of day-to-night matte shades. From velvety nudes for a low-fi look, to richly pigmented shades for an after-hours, smokey eye transformation—it will take you from long lunch, to bar and beyond.

INSIDER ESSENTIAL

When we spy radiant, flawless skin flash by us in the corridors of MECCA HQ, chances are that skin is draped in the super-sheer and luminous bareMinerals Complexion Rescue. Why so much love? The heavenly hydrating tinted gel-cream gives the most naturally flattering finish and SPF30 protection, making it well-suited to any occasion. This limited-edition mini is definitely coming along in our carry-on.

MECCA-MADE

A metallic sapphire Mecca Cosmetica Cosmetics Clutch is a welcome guest at any destination. We love how versatile it is too; throw in your keys, credit card, phone and makeup must-haves and take it out to brunch.
