Who doesn’t love to travel and look fabulous while doing it?! There is only ONE down side….deciding what makeup to bring with you!! Often times, the makeup your bring speaks volumes about the products you’re loving at the moment. Can’t leave for a vacation without a specific product? Talk about the perfect way to confirm that you LOVE it.
After spending a week away recently, I took inventory of the products I was reaching for time and time again. Not only are these products multi-functional and reliable, but they are also versatile. Nothing beats bringing one pallet or grouping of products that can play double duty on your trip. Bringing less and being able to achieve MORE in your makeup look is always a bonus. While BlaireBeauty.com was offline for one whole week (I MISSED YOU!) I took notice of the makeup and brushes I continued to reach for, when I reached for them and why. Want to know the scoop and the products I was loving (and still adore) from my trip? Buckle up.
STUDIO | 10: Visible Face Definer – Contains a powder bronzer, cream blush and cream highlight. What a gorgeous way to achieve a contoured and bronzed face without needing to take multiple products and compacts along for the trip. A one stop shop! All three products are contained within one gorgeous, slim compact. www.studio10beauty.com Best part? They can also be applied with fingers for a natural and on-the-go look.
STUDIO | 10: Visible Lift I-Definer – This little gem of a compact contains an eye primer, a neutralizing shade for your entire lid, a contouring shade for the crease, a beautiful matte highlighting shade (perfect for inner corners of eyes) and a defining shade to add some depth to your lids. Play around with each of these colours and you can achieve anything from a neutral day-look to a smokey evening-ready eye. If the colours work well for you, you may also be able to use one of the darker brown shades to fill in your brows. Win-Win! www.studio10beauty.com
STUDIO | 10: Double Ended Shadow Brush & Double Ended Cheek Brush: I must admit, I’m not typically a fan of double ended brushes. They make storage a little tricky and can often be difficult to display. I love storing my brushes in a glass vase with glass beads to keep me brushes from falling over. When travelling though, dual ended brushes are the way to go! Rather than taking 4 brushes, you can take 2. Both of STUDIO | 10’s brushes are soft, effective, wash up well and apply product beautifully. Definitely worth the price tag. www.studio10beauty.com
Hard Candy: Glamoflauge Concealer – this product packs a HUGE punch. Not only does this product cover blemishes and dark circles, but also helps to even out the skin’s colouring. Best part? It’s available at Walmart for less than $5. Go get you some! To prevent it from moving, set it with a loose or pressed powder. http://mobile.walmart.com/ip/15599852/ratings/SUBMISSIONTIME
Cover Girl: Loose Setting Powder – This stuff is wonderful. Easy as that! Inexpensive, lasts and lasts and doesn’t leave your face looking chalky. The perfect way to keep your look matte and beautiful. www.covergirl.com
No Bleeding Lips: Clear Lip Liner – I am a HUGE fan of a neutral look with a pop of bold lip colour. Looking to ensure that you lip colour does NOT budge over the course of the day?? This liner is for your. Line the rim of your lips, apply your fav BRIGHT shade, and voila! You’re locked in for the day. Perfect for travel and vacation. www.nobleedinglips.com The PERFECT pair for #BrightLipThursday too!
Model in a Bottle: Matte Setting Spray – Looking to apply your makeup in the morning and NOT touch it all day? Model in a Bottle setting spray is for you. Apply your makeup, apply a few sprays of this fine mist and voila! Your makeup will last and last and LAST. www.modelinabottle.com Check out BlaireBeauty.com’s most recent product review for more information on this incredible product.
Be it for travel, every day or anything in between – the above mentioned products are my beauty essentials for travel. Not only do they offer wonderful options for you while you’re away, but they also allow you the versatility to achieve countless makeup looks without having to bring along multiple products.
Be safe on your travels, and remember to look fabulous! BB xo
