While I don’t always look as perfectly put together as Victoria Beckham or Olivia Palermo, I do try to make an effort to look good — or at the very least, look like a human being and not a zombie from The Walking Dead — when I’m on a trip.
After all, you get your photos taken more often than usual when you’re traveling, right? So you have to look decent! Though, I have to admit.. All those red-eye flights, long layovers, different time zones and lack of proper sleep make it challenging to look fresh all the time.
So how do I do it? Well, I rely on the following beauty products to give me that natural ‘no makeup’ look when I’m on-the-go:
Moisturizer: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
Concealer: Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ÉCLAT Radiant Touch No. 2
Foundation: CHANEL VITALUMIÈRE AQUA Liquid Foundation in 20 Beige
Pressed Powder: CHANEL VITALUMIÈRE AQUA Compact in 20 Beige
Blush and Bronzer: NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm/Laguna
Lip Balm: Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1
Lipstick: MAC Lipstick in Blankety
Eyeshadow Primer: TOO FACED Shadow Insurance
Eye Shadow: Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette
Eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
Mascara: DIOR Diorshow Mascara in Black
Makeup Remover: SEPHORA Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
I know it seems like a lot but most of these products come in travel-sized, TSA-approved containers so they’re not bulky and can be packed in a carry on. Also, don’t worry! My make-up routine is very low maintenance. It only takes me about 10-15 minutes to get ready before I head out. Just like you, I don’t like wasting precious adventure time when I’m on the road so spending hours working on my face is a definite no-no for me.
Anyway, now that I’ve revealed the beauty products that I swear by, you have to tell me yours. If you know of other good quality products that are handy and inexpensive, I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a comment below.
