My Favorite Beauty Products for Summer Travel

Travel Beauty Products

I recently went through an airport security line, and despite my best efforts, had to have my cosmetic bags independently screened. Though I did manage to fit every bath and beauty product in my carry-on purse. There are several beauty products I never travel without in addition to some new ones I've been excited to try this summer. Most of them are for the sake of saving space, while others like my new e.l.f. travel makeup kit (pictured top left) are for special events in which I need a lot of makeup options in a small case.

For keeping my skin healthy on the go, I couldn't do without my exfoliating cleansing brush. I typically have to use a medicated facial scrub to ward off breakouts, but the Clarisonic is great for cleansing no matter which cleanser I happen to have on hand while traveling. It's also great for exfoliating, so if I need to skip my fancy retinol cream for a week, it's no big deal. At home I typically don't use makeup remover; I like to use my gentle soap, but when traveling (especially in heat and humidity), I love to have disposable makeup remover cloths on hand. My motto when traveling, and in life really, is you never know!

As far as makup goes while traveling, I always take a bronzer compact. Before I go on vacation, I have visions of leisurely applying makeup in front of my hotel mirror after a luxurious bath, but in reality I'm usually thinking ah screw it! I just want to swipe on some color and get out the door to have some fun. With bronzer, I just swipe some onto a blush brush and apply it to my cheeks and eyelids in a mattter of seconds.

Pic of the Week: A Budding Beauty

I snapped a shot of this beautiful rose bud in a garden near Woodward Park in Tulsa. While I'd been to Woodward Park many times, I'd never been to this other garden area. It has an heirloom vegetable garden and a fountain and koi pond with lovely flowers planted along the walkways. Luckily I got some more bee and butterfly shots. Can't wait to share them all!
