When I travel I literally want to bring everything I own, but I also know that’s not possible. So when you travel as much as I do (lately) you kind of need to get it down to a science to minimize stress. A lot of time I choose products that double up like say a bronzer with a highlight that can be used as an eye shadow. I know genius right? Here’s a few more of my tricks for easy hauling…
How cute is this backpack above? I’ll be stuffing it with my laptop, headphones, and other electronics, andddddd everything you see listed below.
BRONZER + HIGHLIGHT
Traveling on a plane can realllllllly dry out your skin, and I loveeeee that Avene makes a travel size of their thermal water! This product is ah-mazing! Not only does it re-hydrate the skin, and creating that dewy look it’s also great if you need to soothe your skin for any reason, say for instance you have facial redness, a sunburn, razor burn, blistered feet this product is really great for a multitude to skin aliments.
naturally-occuring compound, to increase hydration and promote smooth,
healthy-looking lips, so naturally these little guy is coming with me.
FACE WIPES / EYE MAKEUP REMOVER PADS
MINI FLAT IRON
I typically curl my hair with my curling wand, but truth be told I have some fine fly aways around mt face that typically need taming. I love the idea this travel-sized straightener from Moda Bam Bam ($47.00 via www.beautyroute.com). Did you know you can smooth out wrinkles on your shirts and/or dresses when you’re in a pinch while traveling? A flat iron can’t replace a regular clothes iron (duh), but it can be great for touch ups!
I love a good matte lipstick and the packaging on these Elizabeth Arden lipsticks is such stunning. I’m looking forward to testing out the raspberry, and the chocolate. I’m not usually one for browns, but I’m turning a new leaf, and I’m going to test it out (we’ll see how it goes).
Elizabeth Arden Moisturizing
Lipstick with matte finishes is available in Barley There, Pink Pucker, Coral Crush,
Nude, Rose Petal, Blood Red, Chocolate and Raspberry $32.00
I love me some fragrances, and who needs them more than when you’re traveling? I love this two sided rollerball from Juicy Couture ($30 Sephora)! You get two fragrances (Viva La Juicy and Viva La Juicy Noir), AND they are plane friendly.
This little wonder fits easily into any bag, and it really does help to tame those tangles. I love it! It’s like the mini version of the wet brush (which I’m obsessed with). Available at Urban Outfitters + Sephora.
Speaking of taming tangles I plan on
doing some sleek looks throughout fashion week, so I’m super excited to
tote this texture paste from Got2B 🙂 “Easily mold and shape that messy look – no bed required. Twist and turn your hair all you want, with göt2b stackable inPLAY sculpt
paste’s rough finish , it will always look like you didn’t even spend
time on it” sounds good to me. Available at most drug stores.
Aroma Green Clay is of the purest quality, rich in iron and sun-dried
to optimize absorbency. Kaolin absorbs skin impurities and clears pores,
while jojoba and grape seed oils eliminate excess oil. The pure
essential oils and floral waters are soothing astringents“. I love this product, and it doesn’t dry my skin out the way other purifying cleansing products do.
