Its the last long holiday weekend of summer, and like most people I plan to squeeze every last moment of fun that I can out of it. One essential to any road trip or vacation adventure is some great outfits and beauty products to keep you looking great on the go.
Here are a few of the items I will be packing for my weekend adventures:
I simply love the Cargo Cosmetics Gel Lip Color line. The lipstick feels much more like a lip balm when you apply and doesn’t have the normal heavy lipstick feel. The colors are really pigmented and wear for hours without feeling like my lips are made up. It doesn’t dry out my lips and gives the perfect touch of color no matter my mood.
Cargo Cosmetics Limited Edition Gel Lip Color in Brooklyn $20
Lightweight, gel texture lipstick glides on like silk. The smooth formula moisturizes and protects lips, feels comfortable and never drying. Semi-sheer coverage with subtle shine. Available in 4 easy to wear, always flattering shades.
The weather right now is shooting from 60’s to high 80’s so I like to keep my face makeup light so I can handle whatever the day brings without dealing with heavy foundations. The Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder has been my summer go to.
The formula is light and evens out my complexion while combating excessive shine. The best part my skin looks like my skin perfected not overly made up. With combo skin this has been a lifesaver at keeping the mid day shine at bay. And the best part is the powder has anti-aging benefits to actually improve my skin each time I wear it!
Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder $49
New shades, new price! Get a luminous, lit-from-within glow with our best-selling perfecting powder.
It’s the first anti-aging powder with the science of skin care built in! This advanced formulation of pure gold, 48 minerals, 11 amino acids and a powerful peptide delivers dynamic anti-aging benefits, while the patented hydration system continuously revitalizes skin for a brighter, more radiant complexion all day.
Any beauty addict knows a good multi- tasker is worth its weight in gold. The new Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Color is a busy girl’s must have. I would put this in my travel bag except I keep it in my purse its the perfect tool for on the go touch ups.
The cheek color formula is so creamy and is very easy to blend. I love this as both a cheek and lip color, it feels great on and the color lasts. Its a very buildable product so I can add a hint of color or layer for a more dramatic evening look. Great for a touch up on the go or to add to a paired down travel bag.
Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color in Silver Lake Sunset $29
Get the ultimate West Coast glow—on-the-go! From Santa Monica to Sunset Boulevard, our latest innovation in illumination is inspired by the magic light of L.A.
Multipurpose color for cheeks and lips. There’s a shade for any look, from a subtle sheen to a full-on flush. The lightweight, brightening formula feels and looks as natural as your own skin—only more illuminated and gorgeous.
A Smashbox-only blending trifecta! It’s all about blending, blending and more blending for this natural, lit-from-within look: a curved dome shape means no harsh lines when applying; a creamy formula means the formula glides effortlessly onto skin; and finally a velvety, flat sponge for blending—so you get just the right amount of diffused color.
The Osmosis Skincare Colour Lustrous Contour Duo comes with a bronzer and a highlighter. The bronzer is one of my favorites. The feather light powder applies easy and is very blendable. I have fair skin and bronzer can be a tricky line of contouring without looking like stage makeup.
The highlighter side blends just as well and is great for highlighting my cheekbones and I add a touch on either side of the bridge of my nose to brighten my eyes up. This is a great combo that adds the perfect finishing touch to my day or evening look.
Osmosis + Color Lustrous Contour Duo $38
A 2-in-1 contouring compact. Osmosis Colour Lustrous Contour Duo allows you to seamlessly alternate between highlighting and bronzing your complexion. The complementary shades accentuate your best features and conceal the areas you want minimized.
The shimmering highlighter utilizes light-reflective pigments to brighten your eyes and accentuate your cheek bones while the matte brown shade creates a chiseled, sculpted look by making your forehead; nose and any other features appear smaller. The sleek, mirrored design allows you to contour on-the-go, making this a makeup bag essential.
