The last thing you want to do on holiday is spending your time in the bathroom following a 12-step beauty routine – especially when you could be out and about exploring a new city.
There are people to see, places to be and absolutely nobody has time to spend hours in the bathroom on a European getaway. This is why I swear by a ‘here’s something I prepared earlier’ approach to your beauty routine when travelling. What does that mean exactly? It means investing in long-lasting beauty treatments that will cut your getting ready time in half during your trip.
Keep reading to find out which three beauty treatments we swear by for looking primped and polished with minimal effort while you’re galavanting around Europe (or anywhere really).
Long-time eyelash extension devotees will know how addictive it is to wake up with full and fluffy lashes. You instantly feel more polished, even sans makeup. Lash extensions are a great beauty treatment to get before a holiday because they’ll save you so much time getting ready and can last for the duration of your trip. “If clients look after them well at home, they will last up to 5- 6 weeks or even more sometimes,” says Daniel, lash specialist from Sydney-based salon, Fancy Lash. If you’re worried about extensions damaging your natural lashes, Daniel says that as long as you’re visiting a professional lash technician, the health of your natural lashes won’t be compromised. “We always check all of your extensions, clean your lashes and take off any longer lashes and replace them with the fresh ones to make sure your lash extensions last longer,” he says.

Fancy a dip in the Amalfi but don’t want to emerge from the water with unruly brows? Brow lamination gives you perfectly shaped, thicker-looking brows that last up to 8 weeks. If you have uneven brows (who doesn’t) or bald patches, a good brow stylist can help to correct your brow shape and hide thinning or patchiness, meaning you can spend less time on your brows in the morning. In fact, when brow lamination is done right, your brows will look perfectly styled without any brow products. Simply brush up your brows with a spoolie in the morning and you’re good to go. Many Benefit Brow Bars are now offering brow lamination along with tinting and shaping, so it’s worth checking with your local brow bar to see if they’re offering the service.

Hydra Glow Facial
We all know the power of a good facial. When your skin is in good shape, you feel more confident ditching foundation in favour of a skin tint or even nothing at all. Think of all the time that you’ll save on your holiday without having to apply a foundation base. Biotyspa’s Hydra Glow Facial will give your skin a deep cleanse and leave you with a healthy-looking glow. Combining an AHA peel and hyaluronic acid-infused mask with Bioyspa’s signature French lifting massage technique and brightening Light Therapy, this glow-giving facial will have your complexion looking flawless and holiday-ready.
