Whether you’re jetting off to the seaside in the south of France or heading to the beach in Southampton, you need to take along some beauty products to look fabulous. Some places may not have the products you’re looking for and with a full day of adventure planned, there’s really no time to visit local beauty stores. Here are some ideas on the best travel-ready beauty products that you can easily toss into your carry-on, no matter the destination. Fix your look anytime with ease.

Tweezers

When it comes to eyebrows, there’s always a stray hair or two popping up. Certainly, you want to look well-groomed when you’re on vacation. Take along a pair of tweezers like the Tweezerman Mini Slant Tweezer. It makes hotel-room grooming a piece of cake. If you’re beaching it in the UK, have all your hairs in place with a good tweeze.

Nails

Use a cuticle cream to keep your cuticles soft and nails looking neat. Try Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream to get the job done. If you’re heading out to a high-end restaurant in the Hamptons, use some cuticle cream for a finished look.

Concealer

The Shiseido Perfecting Stick Concealer is compact and easy to stash in your carry-on. There’s no need to pack a brush. Easily swipe this creamy concealer on right out of the tube and smooth it on with your finger. Heading out for a night on the town but tired from a day of sightseeing? Cover up that tired look with some concealer.

Facial Mask

Keep your complexion looking fresh with the Karuna Hydrating Face Mask. It’s an ultra-moisturizing sheet mask that will soothe and revive dull skin. It comes in a small, compact packet that’s easy to take along. If you’re out of town for a wedding, having handy facial masks done the night before gives you the best face for the wedding the next day.

Perfume

Of course, you’ll want to smell good while traveling. With the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Solid Perfume Compact, you won’t have to worry about liquid contents spilling all over the contents of your suitcase. It houses a mirror and a solid vanilla-violet-and sandalwood that is totally drip-proof. Smell delicious while you’re touring Australia.

If you’re traveling in Australia, Canada, UK or the US, visit a local Vagaro beauty or fitness professional to get your perfect look. Just visit www.vagaro.com.

It’s that time of year again. The time of year every woman loves, time to pick out a swimsuit. Okay, we made up that part about every woman loving this act. In most cases, choosing a swimsuit is more akin to torture than a fun day out on the town. Thankfully, there are some ways to make the process easier. Read below to learn the swimsuit fashion rules you should keep in mind when you shop for a new bathing suit this year:

The Fit is Everything

A swimsuit can be absolutely beautiful on the rack. However, if it doesn’t fit you as it should, it won’t be attractive. Keep in mind, selecting a size that’s too small will only make you look overweight as it will force your skin to bunch. A swimsuit that’s too big will simply make you look frumpy. Either way, it’s not a great look. Therefore, ensure the suit fits snug but not tight for the perfect fit.

Keep It Classy

You might assume something as small as a bathing suit couldn’t possibly be modest or classy– it can. Pretty, fun patterns in rich colors show class as do full or moderate bottom coverage. over-the-top graphic designs, neon colors and overly seductive bottoms communicate a different message, so it’s best to avoid them all together. As a general rule, your bathing suit bottoms should be thicker than the straps up top.

Dress For Your Body

Some body types look better in certain bathing suit cuts, colors, and styles than they do in others. Therefore, it’s important to select your suit based on your own body shape. Embrace what you have. There is a style that will highlight what you want to show off and camouflage what you would rather hide; you just have to find it. General tips like selecting a bikini top with an underwire if your bust is small or sticking to a matte finish if you want to hide a belly showcase how you dress for your body.

Buying a new swimsuit doesn’t have to be a negative experience if you stick to the fashion rules above.

Ever wonder how celebrities and top models get those toned and sexy legs? Along with a strict diet, leading ladies complete intense workouts to keep their legs ready for bikini and short-shorts season. Consider one of these popular workout classes to achieve a strong, sexy pair of legs this summer.

SoulCycle

Favored by celebs like Kelly Rippa Nicole Richie, SoulCycle is an indoor, heart-healthy cycling class with energizing music and inspirational coaching. The 45-minute class can result in 500-700 calorie burn. Plus, cycling targets all the important leg and butt muscles like the quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteus.

Barre

If you’ve ever coveted a long and lean dancer’s body, barre just might be the exercise class for you. Regularly visited by models like Candice Swanepoel and other celebs, the class focuses on tiny one-inch isometric movements that allow you to engage the lower-body muscles without adding bulk.

Bikram Yoga

Yoga might typically be lumped into the category of light exercises, but the right practice can work wonders on your legs. Bikram yoga, for example, follows a sequence of 26 postures in conjunction with deep breathing in a heated room. The combined effects of the temperature and moves lead to stretching, detoxification, muscle toning, and stress relief. Celebs like Jennifer Aniston and Lady Gaga swear by Bikram yoga.

Kickboxing

In addition to getting the heart rate pumping, kickboxing is a full-body workout with specific benefits for the legs. Using the punching moves associated with boxing with a variety of martial arts-type kicks, this workout activates all the legs muscles. Most people see results within a few weeks of starting. Supermodel Gigi Hadid combines kickboxing with yoga and ballet moves for the ultimate body-sculpting workout.

Build shapely legs in time for summer with the hottest workouts favored by celebs. Contact one of our fitness specialists to construct a personalized workout just for you. Plus, find a fitness center where these classes are offered so you can get sexy summer legs that turn heads.

Not sure what to wear this steamy season? We’ve found some easy, breezy looks worth copying. Whether you have a hot date, beach side barbecue, or backyard soiree to plan for, you’ll be ready.

Bright, chunky stripes

The ‘90s are calling, and if you answer, you’ll see that thick, bright stripes are back in fashion. Designers like Proenza Schouler, Mulberry, and Delpozo sent out models on their respective spring/summer 2017 shows wearing stripes of all kinds. Whether it’s a sweater, skirt, blazer, or shirt, horizontal or vertical, wear those stripes proud. The louder these are, the better.

Modernized khakis

Chances are, you probably already have a pair or two of khaki shorts in your wardrobe. Designers like Carolina Herrera and Creatures of Comfort have updated khakis, using the material in dresses, jackets, and yes, pants. This summer, try wearing khakis in a new way.

Fun floral everywhere

This season, designers like Erdem, Dries Van Noten, Balenciaga, and Chloe are emphasizing all-floral looks. If this seems a bit intimidating, start slowly with a floral dress or romper. Then pair a solid top with a pair of floral shorts or vice-versa. This spring-to-summer trend is everything the season should be: bright, sunny, and fun.

Embracing yellow

Speaking of sunny, yellow is set to make an impact this summer. From Kate Spade New York to Jason Wu and Coach, the summer runways were full of models sporting this cheerful color.

You don’t have to wear a show-stopping shade of yellow, either. The option is yours. For early summer, springy pastels make for a great choice. As the season heats up, so too should your fashion choices. Embrace a canary yellow ensemble at least once, be it a skirt, top, or even a dress.

‘80s retro glam

Whether you missed the ‘80s entirely or you want to relive your glory days, summer 2017 is the season to do so. From last year to this year, the runways have been littered with throwbacks to the colorful, decadent decade.

The best part about ‘80s fashion? You can tailor it how you like, whether that’s towering heels or puffy shoulder pads.

Shirt dresses

When it gets swelteringly hot, you want to wear something roomy and comfortable. Enter the shirt dress. DKNY, Banana Republic, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Rag & Bone restarted this trend.

The most popular shirt dress color to wear is white, which is ideal for summer anyway since your clothing will absorb less heat. Pair your dress with a pair of killer wedge heels and a straw hat and you’ll be a summer fashionista.

Single-color outfits

Color-blocking may still be trendy, but designers like Max Mara and Roland Mouret have moved fashion more towards single-color getups.

This may feel too matchy-matchy at first. To combat that, try buying a single-colored romper or two-piece set that’s already one color. You can also offset your main color with leggings or a skirt in a complimentary hue. There are plenty of options.
