Essentials on the sea

Heading on a cruise? Scrap the extra beauty baggage in favour of these multi-purpose essentials – just be sure to pack equal parts hydration, protection and fun.

Descending, from left to right:

Nerida Winter Avalon Sunset hat ($220, neridawinter.com) will keep your most important assets shaded in style.

Louis Vuitton Toiletry Pouch 26 ($705, louisvuitton.com.au) is the perfect size to fit all your beauty kit essentials.

A pop of coral will add a touch of glamour. Try Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in Coral Fizz ($46, davidjones.com.au).

Blue hues are a big beauty trend, so if you're packing light, pick YSL Couture Palette 06 Rive Gauche ($103, yslbeauty.com).

A light brush of Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelée ($75, esteelauder.com.au) will give an instant summer glow, sans wrinkles.

A single drop of Chanel Sublimage L'Extrait ($650 for 15ml, davidjones.com.au) is all it takes to add luminosity to your face.

The deep ocean-tinted bottle of Tom Ford Costa Azzurra EDP ($298 for 50ml, davidjones.com.au) evokes the Amalfi Coast at night.

Oribe Run-Through Detangling Primer ($41, net-a-porter.com) hydrates and protects surf-ravaged tresses.

Sunday Riley Blue Moon Cleansing Balm ($88 for 100ml, mecca.com.au) is ideal as a hydration mask or to remove stubborn sunscreen.

Use Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil ($39.95 for 100ml, adorebeauty.com.au) on your hair, face and body for a luxurious blend of natural oils.

Dab Dior Crème Abricot Nail Creme ($47, davidjones.com.au) on cuticles if you want your pre-holiday mani to last the distance.
