Travel Makeup Essentials

Hey Loves! Hope your’e doing well, I just got back from my gorgeous honeymoon in Jamaica. We spent a beautiful week enjoying being newlyweds and soaking up some fun in the sun in Montego Bay. My skin always looks it’s best when I spend time in the sun, it soaks in all that extra vitamin D and just glows. So I like to give my skin a break on vacation, I don’t wear a lot of makeup during the day when I’m by the pool just a little a night when we get dressed up for dinner. The one product I did wear everyday was my Gimme Brow by Benefit. I have lighter coloured hair so my eyebrows can be non existent if I don’t do anything to them. Each morning I used Gimme Brow to create fuller-looking brows. It’s even water resistance so I highly recommend packing it for your next topical vacation! DSCN0445

Another product I brought with me from Benefit was the They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara. I love this mascara and seriously use it everyday! My lashes are short and stick straight out but this mascara leaves them looking long and full with only 2 applications. The brush is fabulous and grabs your lashes by the root, giving you length and volume.They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara is also my go to for my bottom lashes, the staggered bristles define and curl my lashes without clumping them together. I did plan on picking up Benefit’s waterproof mascara but this one did do the trick and lasted at the pool. I will be honestly and say I didn’t put my face in the water and if you do definitely don’t rub your eyes after swimming.


After all those layers of sunscreen and hot day in the sun my skin always needs refreshing. I brought with my my favorite foaming cleanser by Ole Henriksen’s, their African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser. It’s so gentle and soothing on your skin but also strong enough to remove your makeup, sunscreen and all that sweat and grease from a day in the sun. Once my skin is clean and refreshed I follow up with Ole Henriksen’s Sheer Transformation moisturizer. I like how it feels so light weight on my skin while still helping to reduce the dryness from swimming in a chlorine pool all day. I love how it smoothes fine lines and wrinkles and has free radical protection to prevent further damage to your skin.
