2016 is all about exploring new places & trying fresh things. Being a traveling jet-setter is now easy with these expert beauty tips.


Most products now come in a travel size or create your own personal beauty to-go bag with everything you use on a daily from face wash to eye cream. Try: Bobbi Brown Refillable Travel Bottles (only $10).

Sea Hair

The “wet” look was all over the runway this season. Spray your damp hair with a leave-in conditioner to avoid split ends later, pull into a low messy bun and pin for a model off-duty look. You can undo later and reveal sexy beach waves. Try: It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in.

Post Flight-Fright 

Airplanes tend to dry out your skin because of the recycled air. Restore it’s moisture with a good skin & hand cream. Try: Weleda Skin food.

Getaway “Do”

Don’t waste time while you’re on vacation putting on a full face of makeup. Mascara, gloss, and go! Try: Dior Show Black Out Waterproof Mascara and Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Coral Crush. (Invest in a good pair of sunglasses). 

In Case You Forgot…

Shaving cream… Use conditioner to soften your skin. It will help your razor glide better. 

Body Scrub… Grab a few packets of sugar from your hotel or while you’re at dinner. Mix with your shower gel or shampoo.

  3. Bye-bye pastels. This fall a deep berry lipstick like Gypsy from Nars looks great on all skin tones.
  4. Nails are your best accessory! Try a pop of color like Butter London’s Royal Navy to un-drab the grays & blacks of the season.
