A bold lip is perfect to add a little pizazz to any outfit. On vacation is always a great time to try out new makeup tricks. Want to try out your new YSL lipstick? Make sure to pack it, along with a few basic clothing pieces to make the perfect vacation look.

2. Scarf

At least one printed or solid scarf is always a great item to pack for the summer. This may sound crazy, but sometimes even being at the beach may be a little chillier than you expect. A scarf can keep you warm and makes a casual outfit look more put together. Also scarves don’t take up much room in your luggage, so you’ll still have a little extra room to take your favorite pair of sandals.

3. Back-Up Mobile Charger

Love to Instagram, Tweet, or Pin while on vacation? I sure do! Sadly these lovely social media apps drain your battery, and quick. I always pack my extra battery charger and it has yet to not come in handy. It’s also so small you can just throw it in your makeup bag or purse.

4. Waterproof Mascara

As the temperature begins to rise, I always make sure I have at least one tube of waterproof mascara in my travel bag. Just because the mascara is waterproof doesn’t mean you have to just wear it when you’re in the water. Waterproof mascara is great to use when you are outside in the heat and humidity on vacation, and with so many brands to choose from you might just find your new favorite everyday mascaras.

Waterproof mascara picks: Smashbox, Lancome, Dior

I have yet to travel anywhere without a luggage tag. Even if you are not boarding a plane it’s always a great idea to have each piece of your luggage marked with some form of identification. If you happen to leave your luggage at the hotel, parking garage, or just laying on the beach it’s easier to claim when it has your name on it. The best part is most luggage tags are cute and cheap.

6. Mini Bag

Mini bags are excellent for vacation, they are the perfect size to hold all of your necessities without getting in your way. A mini bag also dresses up a casual outfit and can take a day look to a night look instantly. With so many different colors and patterns to choose from, a mini bag is sure to make a statement while on your vacation.
