Tips for Light Travel: Toiletries 101
June 23, 2011
With your vacation planned, your clothes picked out and a beach in Hawaii awaiting your arrival, only one obstacle remains: packing. Like all of us, you just don't know how you're going to get everything you need for your trip in one suitcase. Especially with airline regulations about number of bags, size of bags and size of toiletries, packing is truly becoming an art! Because you want to look good on your vacation, investing in quality toiletries in airline and travel ready sizes is essential. The week that you plan on taking two hundred pictures is NOT the week to be depending upon some hotel travel shampoo, nor is it the week to pack less clothes just to fit in your full-sized salon products. So, to help a sista out, here are a couple of excellent travel sets to make your travel plans WAY easier: For Your Hair: The Blow to Go Travel Kit. Including four products specifically designed for heat styling, of the highest salon quality, this convenient kit is packaged in 2 oz airplane ready bottles, even packed in a small, clear plastic bag. Did we mention how CUTE this thing is!? ($28) For Your Skin: Juara Glow on the Go Travel Kit. Also in travel sizes (all under 2 oz), and packaged in a clear plastic bag, the Glow to Go Kit addresses all of your toiletry needs, including facial cleanser, facial mask, hydrating toner, moisturizer and body balm. In lovely packaging and suitcase-friendly sizes.($36) Cosmetics: Bella Il Fiore Face Palettes. MakeUp doesn't travel well, but vacation is not the time to be skimping on quality cosmetics. Take care of the space and travel issues with a multi-use color palette, including beautiful colors and a range of texture and formulas to accommodate eyes, lips and cheeks in one small palette. Beautifully packaged and expertly coordinated. ($20)
No Budge Back to School MakeUp
August 24, 2010
Whether you're a mom of four, a busy college student, or a hard-working principal of your local middle school, back to school means back to being busy. Often being gone from your dorm room, house or apartment for an entire day, being in the swing of the school year necessitates makeup that you can apply in the morning and count on it to last- all day long. Here are our top three products that we consider back-to-school essentials for makeup that lasts:
1. Bella's Face Palettes: Artfully designed to match any complexion beautifully, Bella Il Fiore's Face Palettes provide an easy-on-the-go makeup solution packed into one travel ready case. Small enough to fit in a backpack, purse or even your pocket, the Bella Face Palettes expertly combine color, saving you time, and fitting easily on your person for touch ups.
2. Blinc (Kiss Me) Mascara: Blinc's Mascara is "totally tubular," featuring not a plastered, impossible to get off stick mascara, but an expertly designed tubing formula that literally creates a tube around your lashes. The mascara won't even budge throughout your day, even with sweat, itchy eyes or P.E., but when combined with a little warm water at night, the tubes will slip off almost effortlessly. We LOVE it.
3. Last but not least, Model in a Bottle Setting Spray is like hairspray for perfect makeup. Apply any makeup, just how you like it, and spray just a couple of bursts of Model in a Bottle over the top to set in your cosmetic creation for the entire day, while absorbing oil and keeping away unwanted shine. Available in both an original and sensitive skin formula, don't worry about irritation. This weightless, invisible spray will keep the attention where it belongs- on you!
