Photographer and stylist Margaret has traveled everywhere from Hong Kong to London, and the best part is that she documents it all on her site, Shine by Three. The native Aussie has perfect insight into what makes a sun-kissed look and how to get beach waves. She shared some of her favorite traveling essentials:
Summer Destinations: New York, Los Angeles, Singapore, Bali, and Vietnam.
1. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil ($14)
Margaret Zhang: I’ve been using coconut oil as a face moisturizer and makeup remover, hair mask, and body lotion for years, and it’s never failed me. Not to mention the peace of mind knowing exactly what you’re putting on your face.
2. Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray ($26)
MZ: On an average work or study day, my hair is up and out of my face, so I am not huge on superstyled hair. On vacation, however, the easiest styling involves a little sea salt spray so you hair dries wavy. Bumble & Bumble is my favorite for dark hair since it doesn’t dry with a gray coating because of the salt.
3. NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in ‘Goddess' ($25)
MZ: This one is an easy eye-opener and complexion brightener for the corners and waterline of your eyes, under your eyebrows, and your cupid’s bow.
