How To: Travel with The Base

How To: Travel with The Base

The Base woman is active and vivacious; she loves adventure and the values the power of hard-working products. Which brings us to ask... how do you get same tanning and beauty looks without packing your entire bathroom into your suitcase
? It's easy!

First of all, split your beauty and cosmetic needs into two categories: "in flight" and "at destination". This will address the fact that most airlines have regulations around the quantity of product you can bring in your carry-on luggage (100mL of liquid per product is the cut off). It will also alleviate any pre-flight stress you may be harbouring about lugging an entire folio of products into the plane's hardly spacious bathroom. Think like this: hydrate + glow = goes / prep + tan =  needs plan. This means any of The Base products required to nourish, hydrate and protect your face can go with you in your carry-on, but the Tanning products you'll need to schedule more of a total body experience for should be stowed in your luggage and checked-in.

Your Carry-On Essentials
These hard-working multi-purpose products, used together, should cover every beauty look you'll need. Hello more space for shopping in your suitcase!
1. LB Cream: it's a cult favourite for a reason. Perfect for that harsh and drying atmospheric shift, you'd hardly believe the amount of hydration that this lightweight product provides! It'll even your skin tone, add a well-rested radiance and it's SPF15+ - perfect for adventuring once you reach your destination.
2. Velvet Bronzing Make-Up Base: its 7-in-1 application potential makes it the ultimate travel essential. Blend it with your moisturiser for lightweight coverage, use it to contour and add definition, a matte-nude lipstick, apply it as a smokey bronze eye shadow, give your face a natural looking Tuscan tint (before you even reach the hotel pool), match your foundation to your new holiday tan once you're there, hydrate, nourish and enhance your skins tone and texture with a few sweeps of a kabuki brush. Added Bonus: mix it with your LB Cream if you need more coverage for that last minute vacation night out.
3. Lip-To-Cheek Tint: there's not much to say here. It'll brighten your complexion and the whites of your eyes so you step off the plane looking like you've just walked out of a day spa. Add a peach or pink tint to your lips to elevate poolside holiday dressing in a flash.

Your Packed Favourites
If you get to your destination and you feel a little blah, never fear. These products will have you glowing from head to toe and radiating health and vitality in the time it takes to exit the arrivals gate.
1. Double Sided Exfoliating Mitt: our newest hero product. This guy will boost circulation, slough away dead skin (and that sticky plane feeling), plump and prep your skin for a tan. Even if you decide not to apply your tanning product right away, you can use it to dry brush your body, assisting with lymphatic draining and boosting your immunity while you travel.
2. Instant Tan Mousse: get bronze in and instant and stay that way for the duration of your trip. The aerated texture of our best-selling Mousse makes it incredibly easy to see where you are applying product. So, if you're feeling groggy or grumpy or both after a long flight, it'll make things nice and easy for you. Plus, you can build the depth and tone of your tan for the duration of your vacation without exposing yourself to dangerous UVA and UVB rays - no one will ever know your best holiday bronze came from a bottle!
3. Body Glow Oil: 2-in-1! Add instant glamour to your vacation garb with this luminous and nourishing oil. It contains revolutionary microparticles that add a healthy (and enviable) radiance to the skin without an ounce of glitter. Plus, it contains lavish amount of coconut oil making it double as an all over body moisturiser, keeping you nourished and your tan in tact while you adventure.
