We’ve been traveling this whole week. We went to Missouri for my brother’s graduation from the ARMY’s basic training. Now we’re heading to Kentucky to drop him off at his new PCS.
Packing for this trip was rough! Eight of us are traveling in one vehicle, so our baggage had to be minimal. It was hard deciding what to bring and what not to! That being said, there are a few items that are my must haves when traveling anywhere!
St. Ives Moisturizer: Every single day I wear moisturizer, and this is the one I use. Believe me, right now while I’m in Indiana I’m so grateful to have it! Oh my word, my skin is so dry from this dry climate. I will never complain about humidity again!
Lash Paradise: I’m more than content to go out without a full face of makeup. If I am going out though I do prefer to at least have some mascara and some blush. This has been my go to mascara lately. It’s super high quality with a drugstore price tag. It is a 100% dupe for Better Than Sex by Too Faced.
MAC Foundation: This foundation by MAC has been my go to for the past 5-6 years. I’ve tried other foundations and nothing wears as well as this foundation on my skin. It’s long wearing and full coverage, but without giving the heavy makeup look. It’s my absolute favorite.
MAC Blush: I always, always carry this blush when I travel. It’s my favorite color and it gives you that natural glow from within! It’s the perfect color for my medium skin tone.
Invisi-bobble Hair Ties: When I’m traveling, getting done up just never really happens for me. I usually seem to run out of time and by the time I get Emma fed and ready, that usually means I only have time for makeup. So a top knot it is! These hair ties are my absolutely favorite for making buns! They’re so good!
Purity Face Wash: I’d like to think I’m not high maintenance haha, not that there is anything wrong with that.
Dove Dry Shampoo: Dry shampoo traveling or not is a must 100% of the time. I’ll never leave the house without it! I’ve tried tons of different brands of dry shampoo, from department stores to drugstore. I’ll choose Dove Voluminous Dry Shampoo every time. So far it’s been my favorite for volume and the price point is unbeatable. It also smells great, and keeps my hair looking fresh!
