It’s that time of year again! Whether you’ve been planning it for months or it’s a last minute getaway, there are some holiday essentials you can’t do without. Thankfully, with over 40 stores under one roof, Bridgewater Shopping Centre caters to all your holiday needs. Here are some of the holiday essentials that you couldn’t possibly jet away without.

Protection from the Sun

If you’re off to the sun, it should go without saying that protection is key. Piz Buin is a fantastic brand that ranges in SPF from 6 to 50+. I’ll definitely be packing their Sun-Sensitive Skin Spray (RRP €10.50) and the After Sun Soothing & Cooling Lotion, (RRP €6.50), in my case. Available in Superdrug and Boots, as well as sunscreen solutions for kids, sensitive skin types and more.

Statement Sunnies

Fabulous sunnies are a double whammy, protecting your eyes as well as being a fashion statement. TK Maxx is great for designer finds at a price your purse will love. Brands vary from store to store but I’ve spotted labels including Steve Madden, Just Cavalli, Quay Australia and Saint Laurent for a fraction of their RRP. I actually bought this Moschino pair for just €39.99 and they will absolutely see me through the summer.

‘No Make Up’ Make Up

On holidays, the ‘no makeup’ makeup look is always a winner. You want to pack as little as possible so focus on multi-functional products that will work as well for the daytime as they will for the night. A strobe cream like this Rimmel Insta Strobing Bronze Glow is ideal as you can wear it on its own to give your skin a fabulous glow during the day. In the evening, just add your foundation on top for a dewy finish. (RRP €7.99 at Superdrug)

The Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Jetsetter Palette is the ONLY palette you will need to bring away. It contains a mixture of powder and cream shades suitable for concealing, contouring, highlighting, filling in your brows, eyeshadows and as lip creams. The handheld palette includes a mascara, two brushes and a mirror so it’s literally got 90% of your makeup products in one. (RRP €39.99 at Boots)
