Travel Beauty

Traveling is hard for me, streamlining, packing, cutting down what I want to take to what I really have room to take!

Some beauty tips while traveling that I go by:

Plan in advance. What I mean by this, is just like I planned my outfits (an still changed things around!), plan your beauty routine around you wardrobe as well. I like to coordinate eyeshadow to my blouse, or maybe my skirt, etc. so I pack eye makeup accordingly.


I have super sensitive skin, so I am unable to be brand loyal to any one brand. An eyeshadow from one brand might be okay, but the blush from that same brand will make my skin break out and get irritated (I.E. mineral makeup gives me the effect of a chemical peel without any of the benefits!!)

So this trip I brought:
Eyeshadow: Artistry & MAC palettes (the Artistry palette was created by Francis Hathaway, a very well know makeup artist)
Mascara: Artistry (<3 this!! It's about $12, and in my opinion, beats DiorShow hands down)
Blush: Artistry baked blush (LE Fall 2011, fanfreaking tastic color!!)
Face powder: Victoria's Secret Pearls (I used to use Guerlain, but the new formula breaks my skin out)
Foundation: DrJart+ Beauty Balm (this is amazing!!! And it doesn't break me out like most foundation I've ever worn, plus it's very sheer)
Moisturizer: Artistry Creme Luxury (wow, this one is killer. Worth every penny)

Victoria's Secret "shimmer" pearls


Artistry’s Baked Blush (I love love love this!!)


How do you streamline your beauty routine when you travel?

Headed home from an incredible weekend. (perhaps one last peek into the Kate Spade outlet in Primm. Maybe) Bye bye Vegas, see you next year!

Until next time,
