Travel Beauty Favorites

I just got back from visiting my family in NC & I thought I would share with you some of my favorite travel beauty products. I always keep these items in my carry on or purse, for airport and plane touch ups. No, I'm not that vain, but I often take the red-eye back to the East Coast, so it's important that I greet my parents or friends as a fresh faced gal and not a hot mess!

Traveling Beauty Favorites


These little guys are my new favorite product that I discovered in one of my NYFW swag bags. The 7 pack is a perfect travel size & spokeswoman Hayden Panettiere recently told PeopleStyleWatch that she finds other uses for them while on the road. They can double as a patent leather polisher or take deodorant stains out of clothes!
 
A few months ago, I started using the RE9 skin care from Arbonne and I'm not exaggerating when I say that it completely changed my skin! I am totally in love with this stuff. Luckily with my last order, I got this handy travel set with all my skin care products (+ a few more) in travel size. It comes in a super cute case that fits in any carry on and is perfect when I need to wash the plane air off my face.
 
It's a known fact that planes dry out your skin - lips included! So I keep this tinted lip balm on hand as much as possible. It keeps my lips super smooth and really helps reduce cracking/drying.
 
4. MAC Bronzing Powder & Revlon Lipsticks
I'm not a huge foundation gal - but I do love a little bronzer. I usually like to wait until I'm off the plan to put makeup on (unless the flight is quick & easy). My favorite bronzer is MAC's - it's super lightweight and doesn't make me look orange. I also don't go anywhere without these 3 shades of lipstick from Revlon: (L-R) Fuschia Fusion, Fire & Ice, Wild Orchid. Just a swipe of 1 bold color with a little bit of bronzer and I'm good to go!
 
I actually never leave the house without this product whether I'm traveling or not. Dry Shampoo is such a fabulous pick me up and can turn greasy hair into fab hair with just 1 spray. This travel size Tresemme version slips into your purse with ease which means you'll begin to have an emotional attachment to it. Trust me - it's a game changer.
 
please note all products mentioned are actually used by me and I was in no way compensated for this post. I just wanted to share my current favs with you! :)
