It was only yesterday in the office that we were talking about all our favorite travel-sized beauty products that come with us anywhere. I don’t know about you, but there’s no way I look the same from when I start work to when I finish it (when you do your makeup at six am there’s no way it looks as good twelve hours later).
That’s why I depend on my travel handbag essentials that not only help me look good from A to B but help me feel refreshed and reenergized whenever I need to throughout the day! Want to know what they are?
1. My go-to hair rescue:
On My Ouai Hair Kit, $20 available here
OUAI are doing incredible things on the hair scene, I personally use the Wave Spray and it transforms my hair! I have really flat, frizzy hair but with a few sprays, it’s transformed! So, when it comes to their little hair kit, I’m sold.
It means you can have perfect hair even on the go. You have the dry shampoo, which is perfect for keeping your hair volumized and clean, the texturizing spray, for you know, adding a bit of texture and a hair primer that tames all those wild flyaways! Take a look.
2. The best pore-blurring products around:
Tatcha Pore-Perfecting Moisturizing & Cleansing Duo, $25 available here
So this beauty wonder works as a duo for amazing skincare benefits. The cleanser will gently but deeply exfoliate skin to remove all the nasties that your skin collects through the day. In the end, your skin will not only feel silky smooth, but it will be more hydrated and better protected.
The second part of this set is the moisturizer that has major anti-aging properties that work to transform your skin, leaving it much more hydrated and even mattifies pores that will prep your skin ready for makeup application! Take a look.
3. My favorite oil for keeping makeup dewy:
Farsali Unicorn Essence Mini, $20 available here
This product is special because it works in many ways. First of all, it’s a primer that will prep your skin perfectly for makeup application and also protects you from free radicals at the same time.
But on top of this, you can use it as a primer for your eyeshadow too, ensuring easy application and can even be used to intensify your highlighter! What’s not to love? Take a look.
4. The best mini cream around:
CDLM Mini, $85 available here
I’ve been recommending CDLM a lot recently and that’s because it’s really one investment you should make with your skincare. I promised myself in the new year, after reflecting on how much I was spending that I would not spend my money on multiple skincare products that promise me one thing. Instead, I would rather invest in products that really do what they promise, which will save me money in the long run. And CDLM does what it says; it’s perfecting for giving your skin a natural glow and even works to eradicate fine lines and aging. Take a look.
5. Our 5-star favorite mascara:
Better Than Sex Mascara, $12 available here
If there’s one thing I know, it’s lashes – let’s call it a forte! I’ve tried out near on every mascara out there, from cheap to affordable to expensive. And I must say that this one is one of my favorites. If you want the voluminous fat lashes that a Dior mascara gives you but don’t want to spend as much then give this one a go. Because in my opinion, it’s even better as it doesn’t clump. Take a look.
6. The only product that’ll make you glow from 9-5:
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin, $20 available here
This one comes with me everywhere – I definitely cannot leave the house without it. After seeing it on some of our favorite models, we all want that natural dewy glow. And who can blame us? It looks so good! And this mist can be applied before or after makeup, anytime, anywhere, which means you can look fabulous from nine to five! Take a look.
7. The fastest way to refresh on the go:
Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier Set and Refresh Spray Mini, $5 available here
This little bargain by will be the cure to all of your skincare problems. And recently, I won’t lie to you, but I’m in love with the Sephora collection. There’s a reason they’re best sellers and it’s not only because of the price.
This setting spray will make sure your makeup stays perfect throughout the day – but it will even re-energize your skin when it needs a boost. And I love sprays these energizing sprays because it really works and leaves you feeling more refreshed. Take a look.
8. My 2018 favorite so far:
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Bomb Baby Mini Lip and Face Set, $23 available here
I am Fenty Beauty obsessed. I’m sorry, I admit it! But it’s only because it is so good and the word must be spread! Her range is so affordable and so next level that there’s no way you cannot try it! I’m obsessed with everything from primers to lipsticks, but the highlight has got to be one of my favorites. And in this set, you’ll get it all.
Keep your highlight glowing and your lips always ready, it will be as easy as just reaching into your bag! Take a look.
