Travel Beauty Essentials – Italian Edition, Part 2

Hello beauty lovers. Please read part 1 before reading part 2 so that you can begin with a flawless canvas. Now that our skin is glowing, lets talk travel make-up as we navigate summer 2017. We all want to arrive at our destination refreshed, well may I suggest a face spray. For my recent travels I took Tarte travel size ‘Rainforest of the Sea’ marine boosting skin mist which works as a primer, setting spray, hydrating mist and skin refresher. I used it while flying and once in Italy, throughout the day to hydrate my skin. Gorgeous Happy Skin!

Walking and Spritzing with Tarte Marine Boosting Skin Mist….bring on that dewy skin…


As I just mentioned the Tarte mist works as a primer prior to make up, as well as after applying your make-up as a setting spray. Another option to compliment your canvas is the Tarte ‘Clean Slate Timeless’  which creates a beautifully smooth base to apply foundation to. My focus is always on great skin so I look for make-up that allows my skin to breathe. Staying with Tarte I am a lover of the entire ‘Rainforest of the Sea’ collection (infact while wearing it on camera I was complimented by everyone on how flawless my skin was – love it). I use a foundation brush and apply the ‘Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15’ I find it is a barrier for pollution as much as an SPF. My skin feels so hydrated with this foundation, I am a huge fan.

I discovered a fabulous concealer while in Venice. Let me introduce you to Sisley. 

Look into my eyes, they say more then words ever can….so let’s make sure they don’t look tired. The concealer ‘Phyto Cernes Éclat’ has botanical extracts and instantly masks dark circles, reduces puffiness and signs of fatigue (extracts of red vine, arnica, and ginkgo biloba) and it visibly smoothes fine lines. I find it ignites my eyes. The concealer comes with a brush with a metal massage tip that creates an immediate, cool decongestant effect and allows for an effortless application. So now let’s have fun playing with our eyes to create that pop pow. Eyeliner has to be my favorite beauty product. The eyes are the windows to your soul so lets frame and enhance them . An  Italian line I discovered (at the airport actually) is ‘Collistar’ Professional Eye Pencil’  which is waterproof, with a smudge tip applicator. The application is soft and the pigment pops. I definitely want to discover more from their line, so take a look at www.collistar.com

Give me that side eye glance with your gorgeous lined eyes baby….


Next…..eyebrows. Light, dark, thick, thin so many ways to style them! This is the second time I’ve run out of my eyebrow pencil recently while traveling. Well you may be surprised to know the go to make up for Italian eyebrows is…..BENEFIT!  Yes! I went into Sephora in Venice and brought myself the ‘Precisely, My Brow Pencil’ and I’ve not looked back! I’m loving it so much I’m going to continue using it. 


Give me those sexy brows….

Travel size beauty products are also great when using a small handbag/clutch. I’m loving the Tata Harper, ‘Contour Very Bronzing’ – this tiny pot of high quality cream magic can be taken anywhere and really allows for an effortless “those cheekbones” kind of attitude. I’ve found I’m using lip liner less and less. As far as lipstick goes I’m having a Tom Ford moment. I’m loving the name of the collection, ‘Lips&Boys” – I’m wearing ‘Evan’ – don’t tell my boyfriend…..shhhhhh. Tom fords beauty products rock! I’m loving the lipsticks and the eyeshadows. The quality is superior and the pigments are so rich and have superb staying power. The ‘Lips&Boys collection is a travel friendly size and fits everywhere.

With beautiful skin you really don’t need to spend hours on make -up. Our  inner beauty can either enhance or extract from our outer beauty….so keep loving yourself and let that love radiate so brightly out into this wonderful world we live in.  Don’t ever let anyone dim your light. You are too precious. 

I love you beauty lovers….make summer 2017 an epic adventure….see you in the Fall.


All make-up is available at Sephora.
