Spontaneity is the fun of life. It’s empowering to be able to throw caution to the wind and say ‘yes’ to everything that comes your way. But when you’re a Virgo even spontaneity needs a bit of planning.
So when a friend asks if you want to join in on a last-minute weekend trip, you CAN do it. And not only can you, but it will be easy.
How, you ask?
Your pre-packed travel makeup kit takes away half the pain. Whether you’re heading away for the weekend or just heading out to what could possibly be a long visit elsewhere, you’re going to want a few travel makeup essentials along with you for the ride. We’ve rounded up our favorites for a fresh and flattering look regardless of what state you’re in the next day.
Travel Makeup Kit 101 – here’s what you’ll need:
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm– The do-it-all wonder product. This primer moisturizes, illuminates and generally brings your face back to life. Apply a pea-sized amount all over for a glow that makes you look like you slept for over 8 hours (because really, who has time for that much sleep?).
Jouer Matte Moisture Tint – With the added bonus of SPF 15, this product (along with the incredible Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer) will even out your skin tone, while looking natural and radiant. The matte version is particularly great because it allows you to add dewiness wherever you see fit.
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush – This line of blushes is the perfect cream formula with a shade for every skin tone. Application never requires a brush for the “blushing from within” look we all dream to achieve. Additionally, no brushes = one less thing to pack.
Maybelline Color Tattoo – The “#100 Barely Beige” shade brightens up our eyes like no other, but any MAC Paint Pot or Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in a brightening, neutral color should do the trick.
Mascara – We’re loving the Maybelline Full ‘N Soft for how touchable it leaves our lashes, but you can use whatever mascara is your current favorite.
Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Coral Crush – A tinted lip balm is the perfect low maintenance fit for lazy days. The color is pigmented but natural enough to apply with little to no effort. Best of all, it smells as beautiful as it looks.
