I just wrapped a full week of travel and I KNEW that I didn’t want to be worrying about chipped nails and oily hair during the chaos. I did my best to make the experience as stress-free as possible. Wanted to share some tips in case you have an upcoming trip planned …

Vacation Beauty Tip #1: Get a gel manicure! I’m 9 days and counting and this is what my nails look like. NO CHIPS. You have to love it!! PS I prefer the CND SHELLAC brand – not the OPI GEL.

Vacation Beauty Tip #2: Carry around a travel sized bottle of dry shampoo. You know how the computer changed the world as we know it? Well dry shampoo changed my hair as I know it. No more pony tails and high buns for me. A few sprays of dry shampoo and I am good to GO! The one I’ve been using lately is the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray Travel Size. DYING over it!

Vacation Beauty Tip #3: If you are somewhere hot and tropical… then you need to carry around Oil Absorbing Sheets with you. Forehead shine is NOT your friend.


Vacation Beauty Tip #4: Leave the heavy foundation at home. You don’t want to feel such heavy makeup on your face. Instead, opt for great powder coverage. I like MAC but use what works best for you. Start with a tinted moisturizer if you feel like powder is not enough.


Vacation Beauty Tip #5: Carry around moisturizer with you wherever you go. Especially if you plan on flying. Your skin will dry out in no time! I always bring FACE moisturizer and body moisturizer when I board a plane. Some opt for mineral water mist sprays… but I was never able to get behind those before.  (Just make sure your moisturizer is travel-size appropriate.)
