I’ve been traveling a lot lately. After 2 and a half weeks on the road for my honeymoon, I was home briefly, and then headed right back out to Costa Rica. Having to pack and unpack so quickly was tricky – but the one part I have down pat is which beauty products I bring along. Below is a list (with links) to my current top 12 do-not-leave-the-country-without products. Enjoy!
But what is product number 12? Well, technically it isn’t a product at all – but it felt unfair to not include it. My lash extensions from Iris + West are without a doubt essential to my travel beauty routine. There is no maintenance involved with them when I am traveling. I can dive into a pool, the ocean, take a shower – all without looking like a raccoon. Truth be told – I haven’t worn mascara ONCE since first getting them a few months ago.
I’ve gone in for fills every few weeks at Iris + West, and have gotten to try a lot of different lash looks. At first I was afraid, and asked for the smallest set possible. Then I got hooked. “Let’s try a cat eye shape.” Loved it. For my wedding? “Let’s go BIG.” I had the fullest lashes on the day of my wedding, and was able to shed tears during my views without fear. For my latest set, I went back to a more minimal look to match my simple makeup for travel. I love my lashes, and have no shame in admitting that I am FULLY addicted to them. May I never have to wear mascara again.
