My Top 5 Travel Beauty Tips

I carry around my makeup bag everywhere, but most of those products don’t fit the “TSA 3-ounce rule;” so I am unable to take them on a plane which means I worry about looking my best when I arrive to my destination, which is Paris this summer by the way.

So here are my 5 Top Beauty Tips to keep you looking fabulous when your plane lands on your next special trip.


1. Freshen Up – I like to see if makeup has strayed anywhere and clean it up before reapplying my makeup. Handy and compact, i.d. On the Spot eye makeup remover by Bare Essentials is infused with an alcohol-free formula that contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E for sensitive eyes; and it is important to be take care of your skin in the low-humidity, dry-air environment of a  pressurized plane cabin.


2. Brighten Up – Fight those pesky under-eye circles with a little touch-up of concealer. I use Amazing Cosmetics Concealer which is waterproof and perfect for any airport reunions that may have some tears. Remember to apply by starting at the inner corner (the inside of the bridge of your nose) and working to the outer edge of your eye.


3. Sport Some Color – Swipe some color on your lips with Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo. I do a natural look when jetting so I love the  Neutral – Lychee shades in a light and more dramatic pink.


4. Get Polished – Get rid of any shine on your beautiful face with Guerlain Meteorites Travel Touch Voyage Powder.  A smaller version of the iconic Meterorites pearls, this lush powder formula leaves skin matte and translucent and the packaging is beautiful.


5. Get Scented– Before I leave any plane, I like to get scented and dab on my favorite scent.  Lately, I am all about solid perfumes and in particular Tocca’s Bianca fragrance with the wonderful notes of Green Tea, Sugar and Mandarin. Putting on my personal scent gets me centered and refreshed; ready to start my new adventure. Remember to be polite when applying fragrance in public, and here are my Top 5 Fragrance Etiquette Tips.

While you are traveling don’t forget to hydrate and drink plenty of water the day before your trip. And you can always leave your house with a leave-in conditioner in your hair. Wrap it in a scarf, and you’ll get a deep-conditioning treatment while you earn the miles — excellent for combating the overly dry air on board.

I hope everyone’s is having a wonderful summer!


Spring your beauty routine into the Pink

Cherry Blossom Kiss
Spring officially arrives with the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, DC and since the blooms will be at their peak this week it is time to think pink and accessorize a little color to your beauty routine.
Pink was a staple on the runways for Spring and this once hard to wear color is now available in so many shades and formulas it is very easy to find a pink to suit your style.
Some of my top picks show above are Urban Outfitters, Blossom Lip Gloss, Burberry Lip Glow in Natural which contains a Ceramide complex to hydrate and plump lips while reflecting pigments create a beautiful color and new Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture, a new generation of lipstick with SPF 15 protection.
Of course any polished woman needs a beautiful way to carry her makeup so the Hermes Birkin Bag is every girls dream option and the easily attainable choice is this adorable Polka Dot bag from Forever 21.
No matter what you choose updating your beauty look for spring is key to a fresh new look for a new season.
I will be sharing my Cherry Blossom photos with you soon and I hope you are having a great start to your new season.
