Tyson's brother is getting married this next week, and so we'll be headed out again for a few days, this time on a red eye with the babies, because we're animals. In honor of the occasion, I thought it would be fun to do a little bag dump of sorts, like the old days. My beauty essentials for summer travel!
Oh, you need an entire suitcase for just yourself? No diapers or anything? Cool.
(If you're a smart aleck and you know it, clap your hands!)
First things first, a tote to haul aforementioned arsenal in, plus diapers, baby wardrobe changes, toys and my grocery store's entire snack aisle. And then of course, Pixi's H2O Skintint and NYX Wonder Stick, which you already know about from THIS post. They're both pretty much almost gone, because they're my number one favorite finds for the summer. But then, you see, I found these other guys. Just to fancy things up a little for the wedding. I've never used a cheek tint before, but this Sheer Cheek Gel from Pixi is soooo pretty. It looks like it could be overpowering in the tube, but a little dab on the apples of your cheeks, and it looks like you're glowing from within. #innerbeauty
NYX's Extra Creamy Lipstick in this light pink, is the pink I've been looking for foreverrrr. Like a bubblegum sheen. And then NYX's Dewy Finish Setting Spray is a LIFE SAVERRR. OK so it's like, when you sweat because it's daggum hot, you look like you have a dewy finish all over your face anyway, so what could possibly be the point of this stuff, right? WRONG. This stuff will make you look dewy and like you just did your make-up instead of melty and in need of a touch-up. I'm telling you, it's wild. So great for those of us who will be having a camera smooshed up against our face for 8 hours in the humidity.
The other portion of our summer plans have included plenty of water. Splash pads, pools, lakes and oceans.
My mini beauty arsenal for the water as follows! First. Lots of water. We already know this. Next, Sun Bum Sunscreen is a new favorite because it allows us to have one sunscreen for the whole family instead of one bottle for the kids and one for us. It's all the good stuff. Non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, vegan, and paraben, gluten, cruelty and oil/PABA free. Of course I threw my H20 Skintint and NYX Wonder Stick staples in there. And then you guys! Revelation time. NYX Incredible Waterproof Concealer. That's actually the name of it, because it's actually incredible. Swim all day, and still magically look like you slept last night! And then an eyebrow wax pencil, which was actually a discovery and recommendation from my sister. For those of us who were genetically blessed with caterpillar eyebrows that have minds of their own, especially in the water. NYX Eye Brow Shaper makes them look like they're trying, without actually looking "done."
