Palettes are great for traveling because they save space in your luggage. The Guerlain “Terracotta” bronzer has a cult following, and I have to say I’m on board! This Guerlain “Terracotta” face palette has the aforementioned bronzer, a stunning golden highlight, a contour powder, and the prettiest coral blush.
I’m not a fan of the sliver packaging detail because when I go in with a brush, the powders mix, but I just cover up the other powders and that works fine. However, this palette is worth that trouble because the powders look so natural and glowy!
If you’re only packing a carry-on, you’d have to buy travel-sized aerosol hair products, so enter this brilliant Kevin Murphy “Powder Puff” volumizing powder. I dispense the powder at a few points near the roots, and then fluff my hair and voila!
I Snapchatted my manicure routine and a lot of people screenshot it so I thought I’d add details here. I’ve been doing my nails with this formula for a year, and my polish lasts for two weeks without chipping! There are only signs of grow-out. Here’s how it’s done:
Essie Base Coat – coat clean nails with a light coat. Wait a minute for the base coat to dry.
Dolce&Gabbana nail polish – I own like 10 Dolce&Gabbana nail polishes, and while they’re pricey, they’re so worth it. The brush curves to your nail and the distribution is so even. This polish doesn’t chip on me. I’ve used other nail polishes, but they’ll be chipped within a week. Even with the sand and wear-and-tear in Hawaii, my manicure didn’t chip!
Perfect Formula Gel Top Coat – this is called a “gel” top coat because it makes your nails as shiny as if you’d gotten a gel manicure, but it’s easy to take off with the usual nail polish remover.
I like not wearing eye makeup while on a beach vacation, but I love having fun lashes. I’ve been doing my own “lash extensions” for almost a year now. For a natural everyday look, I use short and medium Ardell individual lashes. For Hawaii, I added more dramatic clusters from House of Lashes. I always use the clear House of Lashes glue — it’s waterproof and keeps my lashes on for over a week!
