My Travel Beauty Routine
We're back from an AMAZING trip to Mexico, and I am definitely going to be posting a recap on our Tulum visit soon! In the meantime, I thought I would share a look at my (very simple) beauty routine while traveling. In the spirit of never checking bags (see here) and wanting to travel light, I have become a pro at whittling down my every day beauty products to a few multi-tasking and perfectly sized items.
Since this was a beach trip to a very casual town - I knew I really didn't need much in the way of beauty products. Here is a peak at what I packed:
FACE: I brought my trusty skin-perfecting tint (which I have started wearing every day, actually) which goes over my favorite sunscreen for the face. I think I need to do a whole post on sunscreen because I have tried them ALL and this is the lightest/best I've found. I picked up this powerhouse palette in the duty-free store within the Sao Paulo airport of all places and love, love, love it. It's TINY but houses 5 eyeshadows, a bronzer, blush, 5 lip colors, a travel mascara and THREE brushes! I'm all about those multi-use items and this is the one thing I take with me on all of my trips since it has everything you need for your face and takes up no space at all. It's kind of life-changing actually. (PS I also really love this small eyeshadow palette if you're just looking for some great basic eye colors in a travel-friendly size).
LIPS: I threw in this multi-tasking lip/cheek tint (all natural product = bonus) which is perfect for adding some easy-breezy color to your face for those no-makeup beach days.
HAIR: I really didn't need this surf spray, because I was at the actual beach - but I'm adding it here in case you're looking for a great spray for your hair and you're NOT going to the beach. This is perfect to spray in your wet locks to add some beachy waves/texture. (I use this all the time and love it)
BODY: I have been testing out this all-natural (aluminum free!) deodorant and do like it quite a bit. I probably wouldn't wear it for a super intense workout, but for every day it works just fine. It's fairly affordable so give it a try and let me know what you think.
FRAGRANCE: I can't say enough about this delicious smelling scent - it is my absolute favorite. It is pretty pricy so here's my tip for you: go into Neimans or Sephora and ask for a sample. They will almost always oblige - and then you have a small bottle you can take with you on trips. I do this frequently and thus never have to spend the $ on the entire bottle. Genius, right?
All of these items fit in the smaller bag from my beautiful leather travel set - so I was able to leave the bigger bag behind. Let me know if there are any other travel-friendly products you can't live without!
