Mykonos is a paradise for anyone who wants to take glamorous photos in a breathtaking ambiance. All summer long social media influencers pose for pictures on the shore. You can be one of them. However, apart from a high-quality camera, you will need a beach makeup bag, too. Fun and a photo shoot cannot go without waterproof mascara, a setting spray, and a lip balm with SPF.

What Is the Perfect Makeup Bag for the Beach?

Whether you will be spending just a weekend or two weeks in Mykonos, you need to pick the perfect purse to store all your beauty products. So, what would be the most adequate option?

The most important bag’s feature is that it is waterproof. We recommend against taking a canvas pouch since the canvas is not waterproof. Look for a pouch that is made of plastic and that has a convenient zipper design so you can put and take out products without any hassle.

Search for bags that are the appropriate size, not too big or too small. It should easily fit in your beach tote. Finally, we always need a bit of chic when vacationing in one of the Mykonos luxury villas, so it’s essential to pick a purse that has inspirational quotes or a fun print design on its surface.

Where Can You Buy a Beach Makeup Bag?

While doing the summer shopping and preparing for a vacation in Mykonos, stop by the beauty supply stores, beachwear shops, and department stores where you can find all types of bags for beauty essentials.

In case you are in a rush and doing last-minute Mykonos shopping, we recommend ordering online since you can browse numerous options and have it delivered directly to your doorstep.

Find a Bag For a Low Price – Check out an Etsy Sale

We have some important advice for you. Watch out for sales on Facebook Marketplace, eBay, and Etsy website. There are always discounts on online marketplaces, and you can shop for all beachwear items at a significantly lower price.

The price for makeup bags on Etsy gets reduced from 25% to 60% throughout the year. On top of this, you can place in your shopping cart some elegant, personalized, and special zipper pouches which are appropriate for an extravagant and glamorous stay in Mykonos.

Start Packing – Gather All Cosmetics for the Beach

Have you picked out the right beachside pouch? Then, it’s time to start packing for a stay in one of the Greek villas in Mykonos. First, gather all the beauty products that you will need. If you are preparing to take Instagram photos on Mykonian beaches, it’s best to extend the list of all products.

Items you need to include in the purse are:

  • A lightweight BB Cream or a tinted moisturizer,
  • Concealer for covering under-eye circles from partying in Mykonian clubs,
  • Lip balm with SPF,
  • Cream highlighter,
  • Cream blush,
  • Blotting papers,
  • Beauty blender,
  • Brushes,
  • Setting spray,
  • A small palette with natural shades of eyeshadow,
  • Micellar water and cotton pads or cotton balls for removing cosmetic products.

Don’t Forget to Include Your Regular Sunscreen in the Bag

Looking beautiful from Monday to Sunday during the summer vacation is the primary goal for most of us, but we cannot forget the importance of protecting our skin from harmful UV rays amidst all the fun. This is why the bag’s contents need to include a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF if you are planning on spending time sunbathing, swimming, and enjoying water sports activities all day long. Remember that no sunscreen protects for 48 hours, so make sure to put it on every two hours.

Rely Mostly on Waterproof Products

Whether you’ll enjoy a romantic date on the shore or plunge in the crystal clear waters and scuba dive, if you want to have the perfect photos of the fun in Mykonos, ensure that the beauty products are waterproof. You benefit the most from waterproof mascara, waterproof eyeliner, and waterproof brow products.

Have Different Multipurpose Items To Not Overpack

The list that we have provided you with might be overwhelming at first. So, if you want to tone it down a bit there is a perfect trick you can use. For a cozy getaway that requires you to look nice while indulging in the picturesque setting, the ideal option would be to pack multipurpose products such as lip and cheek pencil, brow and lash gel, palettes with a highlighter, blush, and eyeshadow.

Make Sure to Organize Products in the Bag’s Compartments

Searching through a cosmetic pouch and not finding the desired product can be annoying, so it’s essential to keep everything organized. When you start packing the pouch, make sure that you have some compartments and dividers so you can prevent the items from knocking against each other.

Lipsticks, liquids, and creams need to be in individual smaller plastic containers, which will serve as protection against leakage. More delicate products should be stored on top, while tools such as brushes and beauty blenders can be on the bottom.

Here is a tutorial on how you can do your makeup in your luxury Mykonos villa once you start getting ready to go out.

Don’t Keep the Bag in Direct Sunlight

Finally, ensure the bag’s contents are always protected from the heat. If you leave the cosmetics in direct sunlight, they will change in texture and melt. They won’t be usable any longer, so keep the cosmetics and all other accessories in your tote underneath the umbrella while spending time on the shore.
