How To Downsize Your Beauty Bag
The holidays can make it feel like more is more: More food, more desserts, more presents. But that excess doesn’t always feel great once the holiday season ends, and can also lead to more clutter in our lives. This clutter can end up taking up more time, energy and space - and no one has time for that. At Wander Beauty, we’re all about fewer, better essentials that streamline your routine, freeing up time and space in your life to conquer what’s most important to you.
Ready to head into the new year with a clean slate, starting with decluttering your beauty bag? Read on for how you can swap out products without ever compromising on an effective beauty routine.
What to swap: Blush, Lipstick and Eyeshadow
Swap it for: On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator
If you (like many of us) have fallen prey to the idea that you need separate blush, lipstick and eyeshadow - think again. Swap out these three products for a single stick that does all three. On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator take the clutter out of your bag by replacing three products with one.
What to swap: Cleansing Oil and Face Wash
Swap it for: Drift Away Cleanser
We’ve all heard it before: Having a 10-step skincare routine that includes double cleansing is the key to flawless skin. But what if you could get the effects of a double cleanse, in a single step? That’s where Drift Away Cleanser comes in. This sulfate-free cleanser gets rid of makeup, including mascara, and all impurities while never stripping moisture.
What to swap: Lip Balm, Lip Gloss and Lip Mask
Swap it for: Lip Retreat Oil
Are you tired of applying lip balm underneath your favorite lip color just to keep lips hydrated? And what about the overnight lip treatment you have by your bedside because lip balm isn’t moisturizing enough? Lip Retreat Oil replaces all three. This ultra-hydrating lip oil has the moisturization of a treatment with the color and finish of a gloss. Wear it during the day to keep lips kissable and glossy, and wear at night (especially in shade Oasis, which is clear) as an overnight lip mask.
What to swap: Liquid Highlighter, Cream Highlighter and Illuminating Primer
Swap it for: Catch The Light Highlighter and Glowtion
We all want to glow from head to toe but why do you need dozens of products to do so? Glowtion is a 3-in-1 triple glow threat: Inside the tube, find a liquid highlighter that can be used under makeup (or on its own) as an illuminating primer or tapped on top of makeup for a subtle glow-from-within effect. Uncap the cream highlight to use on tops of cheeks, inner corners of eyes, cupid's bow and brow bone for a natural glow that let’s skin catch the light from every angle.
What to swap: Liquid Highlighter and Liquid Eyeshadow
Swap it for: Exquisite Eye Liquid Shadow
Let your liquid eyeshadow do double-duty: Use Exquisite Eye Liquid Shadow all over eyes for a quick, effortless eye look and then tap onto tops of cheeks for a coordinating highlight. You can even use on collarbones for an extra dose of glowy oomph.
What to swap: Face Oil, Cuticle Oil and Hair Oil
Swap it for: Glow Ahead Face Oil
Don’t let your face have all of the fun: Take your Glow Ahead Face Oil beyond its intended purpose by using on cuticles and to tame flyaways. Plus, the spill-proof Wander Dropper on Glow Ahead makes it perfect to toss into any bag to keep your skin and hair gorgeous on the go.
