Travel Beauty Essentials

Hi All!  

I am writing today’s post from Portland, OR as I’m currently on vacation visiting friends and family here!  I wanted to quickly share the beauty essentials that I brought along with me.

Hair Product:

Batiste Dry Shampoo

Other than standard shampoo and conditioner, the hair item that I must have with me at all times is dry shampoo.  This Batiste Original is hands down the one that I reach for the most as it takes away the greasiness without leaving behind any filmy layer or white residue.  I also love that it comes in a convenient travel sized option for trips!

Face Products:


I tried to limit myself with how many makeup products that I brought with me, but when it comes to makeup, THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST! 

Face primer: Rimmel Stay Matte Primer

Concealer: Cover FX Correct Click Color Corrector in Orange

Foundation: Chanel CC Cream

Blush: MAC Cosmetics Powder Blush in Harmony

Face setting powder: Ulta Finishing Powder in Banana

Bronzer: Laura Mercier Bronzed Press Powder in Dune Bronze

Highlighter: Maybelline FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold


Eye Products:img_0226

Eyeshadow Primer: NARS Pro Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base

Eyeshadow palette: OF COURSE it’s the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette

Mascara: L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Blackest Black

Eye Liner: L’Oreal Infallible Super Slim Liquid Eye Liner in Black


Lip Products: IMG_0227

I am obsessed with Tarte lip products at the moment, and these 3 times were a must for this trip!

Lip liner: Tarteist Lip Crayon in Latergram

Liquid lipstick: Tartest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Festival

Lip Balm: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Lip Rescue in Nude

The Vaseline Lip Therapy in Cocoa Butter is a product that I absolutely cannot live without.  My lips get dry very easily so I prefer to apply this every morning and night in order to prevent cracking.



I’m still working my way through the Estée Lauder skincare products that I did a first impressions on last month (check it out here if you’re interested)!  My thoughts have not changed too much from my first impressions, but I’m going to use everything up so that’s why I brought it all along with me!

Serum: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

Eye Cream: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye

Day Moisturizer: Estée Lauder Daywear Matte

Night Moisturizer: Estée Lauder NightWear Plus

I apply sunscreen after my daytime moisturizer and before I apply my CC cream, and I’ve really been liking the Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid-Lotion Sunblock in SPF 55.


Do I have any beauty essentials similar to what you bring along on your trips?!
