My Travel Beauty Essentials

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

I don’t usually wear a lot of make-up in general, and when I travel I find I tend to wear even less. Some mascara, a tinted lip balm, and sunscreen are my go-tos, but sometimes the occasion calls for more and over time I’ve found a few favorites. The best places I’ve found that sell good mini-sized products are Sephora’s Travel Section and Whole Foods (secret’s out!).

My travel essentials are:

Fat the Moon Natural Deodorant Cream – I’ve tried lots of natural deodorants and this one has been the best by far.
Clinique High Impact Mascara – My favorite mascara in mini-size.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer + brush – I don’t wear foundation or powder, so instead I use this tinted moisturizer because it provides some coverage, has spf 20, and leaves my skin feeling light and dewy.
A Bass comb – These combs are great, especially if you have really thick hair like I do!
Nars Mini Concealer – Pocket-sized and great for covering any dark under eye circles you get from late night shenanigans.
Bare Minerals Pure Radiance Highlighter in golden peach - I just started using this to brighten up my face and love the peachy color.
Bumble & Bumble Surf Infusion oil +sea salt hair texturing spray – I just ran out of this, but it’s perfect for whenever you need to wash and go and want a beachy/tousled look.
A reef safe sunscreen – I usually buy this when I get to where I’m going so it’s one less thing I have to pack (and liquid restrictions on airplanes are 3 oz or less). This one is left over from swimming with the whale sharks in Mexico.

For shampoo/conditioner, I take mine from home in Gotoobs.

Some other favorites:
Klorane dry shampoo – perfect on the fly and in-between washes.
Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible oil – so great for taming any fly-aways and giving your hair a silky-feel.
Korres Lip Butter in pomegranate  - for when you want some color but don’t want to wear lipstick.
