Travel Tips (And Products) For Your Toiletry Bag

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a very, very, very bad packer. Overpacking is an understatement. I envy those who are able to pack for longer than a week — in a carry-on! My toiletries take up my entire carry-on — And that’s without the full size skincare products that must be checked because of the TSA no-liquid rule. Needless to say, I am over-prepared with my beauty products when traveling.

Favorite Sensitive Skin Cleansers

Sensitive skin is brutal. Anything and everything can irritate it. Sometimes, you want to just stick a vat of Aquaphor on your face and call it a day. Even skin types that aren’t quote-unquote sensitive can go through irritated, sensitized periods where what your skin really needs are gentle, loving ingredients.

What’s your beauty vibe?Is there such a beauty vibe as a mood ring? I’m constantly changing up my look. My makeup beauty goals would probably be Katie Jane Hughes.

Weekly Must-Have: L’Oreal Brow Stylist Shape And Fill Pencil

Another week, another brow product must-have (are you sensing a theme yet?). The quest for perfectly full arches continues… and this drugstore find is my current go-to for nighttime filling and styling (plus my brow gel of choice) — when I want to create a statement brow. L’Oreal Brow Stylist Shape and Fill Pencil is the best $10 I’ve spent on my arches in ages. It actually reminds me of the Tom Ford Brow Brow Sculptor (at $52!), but I like this one even more — and it costs 1/5 of the price.

The Face Masks You Need To Own For A Brighter Complexion

We’re on a constant hunt for products that promise — and deliver — a brighter complexion. An even skin tone, glow-from-within, poreless face, tighter skin? Yep, we want those things, too. The fastest way to see results is by getting a facial (or, perhaps, depending on your skin type and melanin production, a laser). The second best way… one of these three face masks.

Makeup Bag: Celebrity Makeup Artist Suzy Gerstein

“I am a big fan of non-toxic beauty. There are so many great things happening in the Green Beauty space that it’s an exciting time to support brands that do good for women and the environment. I also don’t drive myself nuts about being exclusively 100% non-toxic. If can’t find a mascara that lasts through a sad movie (or red carpet) without running, or spot an electric teal eyeliner in Sephora that makes my heart sing, then I shop the mainstream lines without feeling guilty about it.
