With blue skies and plenty of sunshine, summer instantly sparks our wanderlust. Of course, there are so many getaways to choose from—from a weekend trip somewhere nearby to a flight overseas. Regardless of your summer destination, there’s one part of traveling that we’re never a fan of: packing. With so many things to consider, it can be difficult to narrow down what beauty products are a must for your adventure, especially since your essential packing list can differ depending on where you’re going. Not sure what to pack in your suitcase? Keep reading for our breakdown of all the beauty must-haves—from makeup to skin care to hair—you need based on where you’re traveling this summer.
Off to Chicago? You’ll likely be attending some of the hottest music festivals—which is why festival-ready products are a must. Pop the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Gold and the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in True Teal in your makeup bag. Be sure to bring a cleanser, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser, as well to cleanse your skin after a day full of festival fun.
If you’re headed to Austin, Texas this summer, you’re in for some heat! Your travel beauty essentials should include a hyaluronic acid serum to keep your skin hydrated in the city's hot, dry climate. Try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Beyond that, grab a waterproof foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight, and a hairspray, such as the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold (Travel Size), to help your beauty look stay fresh in spite of the weather.
For the city that never sleeps, you’ll be wanting to bring along products that can help perk you up in case you don’t get your usual sleep quotient. We’re talking about an eye gel to keep those under-eye bags from ruining your beauty look and a vitamin C serum to give your complexion a radiant boost. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel and the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum to do just that. Of course, this trendy city also calls for an on-trend, standout lip color! We love the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Rebel.

Headed to France? Oui, oui! French girls are all about a more natural look, usually opting for concealer over foundation. For your summer vacay, bring a subtle blush, brow mascara, and sheer lip color to complement your natural beauty and keep your look effortless (at least in appearance). Try the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Just Curious, L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara, and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Shining Peach.
If you’re headed to Cali, you’re sure to be out and about surfing waves, scoping out the night life scene, and maybe even making a visit to the zoo. Keep your skin awake and energized for all of your activities by packing the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Resurface & Energize Kona Coffee Scrub in your bag. We also recommend bringing a travel-friendly self-tanner, like the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Towelettes for Body, so you can get that Cali glow minus the sun damage. Lastly, you’ll want a product that will allow you to quickly and effectively sculpt your complexion so you can have amazing cheekbones and still be left with plenty of time to explore! Grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Foundation Shaping Sticks and you’ll be good to go.
Catching a flight to Miami this summer? You’ll want to be prepared for a night on the town—and that calls for a mattifying primer that can withstand the Miami heat, plus a dramatic mascara to complete your makeup look. Pop the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Lock Makeup Primer and the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara into your bag. What else do you need? We recommend a smoothing face mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, to keep your complexion looking its best whether you’re going sans makeup on the beach or rocking a full look at the club.
¡Vamos a España! If you’re headed to Barcelona, be prepared for nights full of dancing and days full of sightseeing. Our number one rec is to bring a face mist, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shake & Glow Dew Mist, to refresh your look throughout the day! You’ll also want a mascara you can count on, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara. As for skin care, keep a face scrub on-hand to give your skin some extra TLC that will be much needed thanks to the warm climate. We love the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub!
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Bring the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation and the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops with you so you can have a dewy, radiant complexion during your stay. Top off your look with defined brows by adding the L’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel to your list of beauty essentials.
