For me, preparing for a steamy getaway involves more than just packing swimsuits and sunglasses—I have to have the beauty essentials to ensure my vacation goes off without a hitch. I need a selection of products that not only withstand the hot temperatures but also deliver a pristine vacation glow. With my upcoming trip to Miami looming, I am in desperate need of a beauty retailer that carries all of the items I love and more. Luckily, I have the perfect one.

Enter Nordstrom, the department store of my dreams that doubles as a treasure trove of beauty products that can get me through a few days of humid weather. I've gone through the site and found 15 must-have beauty steals perfectly tailored for any escapade to the sunny city of Miami. From skincare saviors like after-sun to makeup must-haves like a mattifying skin tint, here's what I'm bringing with me.

Dune Suncare

The Lifeguard Cooling Miracle Rescue Aloe Gel

I'm going to be honest, I love to lie in the sun, but it makes my skin feel a little dry after a full day at the beach. I am obsessed with this cooling aloe gel from Dune Suncare because it's full of hydrating and soothing ingredients for the best post-sun care. It also doubles as a moisturizer.

CHANEL

Rouge Coco Baume Hydrating Conditioning Lip Balm

In the hot, humid heat of Florida, one needs to reapply makeup pretty often. For me, my lips usually go bare (with the exception of a good lip liner), and I tend to go for a moisture-rich lip balm like this one from Chanel. It makes the lips look fuller while also feeling silky-soft.

I'm trying to look glossed from head to toe with my Miami outfits, and for that I need a super-hydrating body oil. A cult favorite, Osea's Algae Body Oil is infused with seaweed, allowing my skin to look and feel suppler and more moisturized.

Byredo

Gypsy Water Eau De Parfum

For a vacation to a warm destination, I tend to go for skin scents that have a slight kick of citrus. I'm usually a woody-fragrance kind of girl, which is why I drift toward Gyspy Water. Although this perfume smells like the forest (hints of bergamot and sandalwood), the lemon note really gives me the best of the worlds.

MAC Cosmetics

Lip Liner Pencil

Lip liner is always in my arsenal, especially this one from MAC—it's long-wear, so you know it'll last you through a fine-dining experience, a night out on the town, and maybe even a morning at the nightclub Space.

Nécessaire

The Deodorant Gel

My arms and shoulders are going to be showing all throughout this trip, so I find it less risky to get with a clear deodorant gel rather than a powdery white version. I love the crisp feel of this product from Nécessaire—it's fast-drying and contains 5% AHA to help nix odor, discoloration, and bumpy skin texture.

The Ordinary

Matrixyl 10% + Ha Serum

I know the heat is creating more fine lines and wrinkles on my skin, so to combat environmental damage, I like to use a peptide serum. This one from The Ordinary also contains hyaluronic acid, which promotes firmer, plumper skin by boosting collagen production.

DIOR

Backstage Rosy Glow Blush

A healthy glow might come from a few days in sunny Miami, but it'll take me a few days to get there. I love using this Dior blush (a beauty editor favorite!) to give me a little bit of a sunburnt look, without it actually happening. I love how pigmented it looks with just one swipe.

Lancôme

Monsieur Big Mascara

I'll be out dancing most nights, so I need to bring a longwear mascara that delivers. Lancôme's Monsieur Big Mascara gives me lasting volume and length but is effortless to wash off when I finally want to.

La Prairie

Cellular Refining Lotion

As someone who has skin that gets more sensitive in the sun, I need a toner that's super gentle and soothing. I love this one from La Prairie for its super-light and powerful touch. Better yet, it's alcohol-free.

111Skin

Cryo De-Puffing 8-Piece Eye Mask Box

The ideal hangover cure for puffy skin, this eye mask from 111Skin comes with me in my makeup bag anywhere I go. Super cool to the touch, it de-puffs using hydrogel in just under 20 minutes.

Ilia

Clean Line Gel Eyeliner

This eyeliner stays on all night and into the next day while still looking fantastic. Ilia has somehow created a clean, vegan gel liner that doesn't budge and gives you ultra-rich color.

Guerlain

Terracotta Light Healthy Glow Bronzer

I'm not the type of vacationer who likes to spend any time in my hotel room, so I need makeup that does double or triple the work for me. Guerlain's Terracotta Light Healthy Glow Bronzer is a highlighter, bronzer, and blush all in one, delivering stunning radiance and color payoff.

Laura Mercier

Translucent Pressed Setting Powder Ultra-Blur

I've always loved the loose powder version of this product, but recently, this pressed compact is always in my bag. It provides an instant blur, which is much-needed in humid weather.

Armani Beauty

Luminous Silk Hydrating Primer

This primer grabs on to the skin to deliver hydration while blurring pores, blemishes, and other skin imperfections. With ingredients like shea butter, rice bran, and glycerin, it leaves skin feeling soft and ready for whatever foundation you use.
