Plane read? Check. Sunglasses? Check. Eres bikini? In the bag. Deciding what to pack for a warm-weather getaway is a challenge even before you consider what goes in your travel makeup bag. Let VIOLET GREY do the thinking for you with itemized lists for which beauty necessities to pack pending your destination.
For the poolside cabana queen, there are SPF options that keep the gams gleaming and Tom Ford’s Lips & Boys carry-on friendly lipstick in Rafael, in a beach-appropriate coral. For the urban escapist there are French oils to keep hair smooth on the sand and refreshing face mists to keep complexions cool following a soul cleansing yoga session. And for those who prefer to remain in their urban jungles, with the thermostat set at 72 degrees, there are sophisticated self-tanners to proffer a sun-kissed glow without ever setting foot outside of your climate controlled abode. Read on to find your own customized beauty wardrobe packing-list for your own swift escape from reality.

For the sun seeker who considers a “lap around the pool” a surveillance tactic rather than a cool-down methodology.
Proposed locale: The legendary members-only Coral Casino and Cabana Club in Santa Barbara, CA (non-members may gain entry by booking a room at the equally posh neighboring Four Seasons Hotel), where Esther Williams was known to practice her backstroke.

— The Inner Reef at the Hayman Island One&Only

For the sybarite who finds nirvana when there’s sand beneath her toes and an ocean breeze styling her hair. 
Proposed Locale: Australia’s Hayman Island One & Only resort in the Great Barrier Reef (it’s summer there...), where the signature spa service requires you receive a massage while floating in the Whitsunday’s Coral sea.

For the nature-addict who lives for sipping a fine Beaujolais by the fire.
