Roadtrip Beauty MUST HAVES

My lovely little beauties..I apologize greatly for my lack of updates lately! Always having my laptop near by doesnt always guarantee a wifi and time alloted to make a blog post! The plus side of my many, many hours on the road? A wealth of ideas to blog about. Get ready dolls!

I figured to get back into the swing of things, it’d be appropriate to blog about my ROADTRIP MUST HAVES, since I seem to be a pro at it as of late. 🙂 This country is beyond beautiful, and I encourage all of you to seize any opportunity to see it! Beautiful..I’ll include a couple of my iPhone pictures from my latest trip at the end of my post. Enjoy! ❤

#1 Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist

I LOVE this product, and it’s been a favorite of mine since beauty school! They make it in an incredible travel size (which is a staple in my purse daily)! It helps to hydrate you skin, and hair. It resets make up and re activates styling products for the hair. It also smells incredible!  Informative facts from Paul Mitchell Systems:

  • Lactic acid and Hawaiian awapuhi provide deep moisture and enhanced shine.
  • Spirulina and plankton extracts rich in amino acids and vitamins make hair soft, hydrated and silky smooth.
  • Sodium PCA (a natural component of human skin) balances moisture.

#2 Kendra Dry Shampoo

I HATE the feeling of dirty hair..however days on the road sometimes call for a “refresher”! This is my all time FAVORITE dry shampoo. It eliminates oily and leaves your hair smelling “out of the shower”fresh! I la la loooove it! Also made in a travel size…must have. 🙂 Kenra.com Info!

  • Instantly revives and refreshes hair – no water required
  • Saves time and extends color or blow-outs by reducing the need to shampoo as frequently
  • Keeps styles looking fresh and full by absorbing oil that can weigh hair down
#3 Noxema Make up Removing Cloths
Theres nothing worse than spending a trip in “worn” make up. Make sure youre still good to your pores and let them breathe while youre on the road. These little babies and handy and useful…never leave home without them 😉
These pre-moistened cleansing cloths effectively remove dirt, oil, makeup – and even waterproof mascara – in one easy, no-rinse step. They’re also dermatologist-tested, so they’re safe to use around your eyes. Your skin can feel clean, moisturized and refreshed anytime, anywhere.

#3 Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment

Theres nothing worse than chapped, sore lips! This is the cure all…worth the investment and an essential purse item, roadtrip or not.  Its a hydrating treatment that helps nourish, protect and plump lips. It also helps from those UV road rays 😉

Top 5 drug store must haves!

I know us little ladies always want to be putting our BEST FACE FORWARD, and there’s a certain confidence that comes along with starting your day in  your most couture make up..however in this economy, even the greatest fashionistas are having the find amazing alternatives that fit not only our color shades but espcially in our budgets! These are my personal “must have” drug store products you’ll never see my kit without. (and that will most definietly be joining me on my ridiculously awesome adevnture this weekend..stay posted for details!)

#1 Abolene Make Up Remover

This has been a product my Mom has sworn by for over 30 years…and she’s living proof it works well and is beneficial to our skin! (Barely has a noticable wrinkle to date!) It removes eye make up, (including waterproof mascara) and deposits amazing mositure into that super sensitive eye area skin. Its soap-less, and is almost the texture of vasaline (but won’t clog your pores like vasaline has known to do). Apply to the eye area, and remove with a soft facial tissue or round cotton. I seriously intend on using this product for the rest of my life!

 $11.99 at CVS drug store   

#2 Revlon Color Stay Foundation

I remember many moons ago while in cosmetology school, we were doing an in depth class on make up..and this product was spotlighted. I have had it in my make up kit every since..I find myself straying away to try the “latest and greatest” but always find myself returning to my trusty ColorStay! It has a broad selection of colors, easy application, great lasting coverage through the day (even for my combination skin) and it photographs well! I even included it in my review of FOUNDATIONS in my MMM a few weeks back. 🙂

$9.99 at Target

#3 Maybelline Color Stick Concealer

Another great Mama-passed down secret that I adore! This creamy concealer goes on smooth and has coverage that is very comparable to much more expensive products! It lasts forever and I use it daily! 🙂

$4.99 at Wal Mart

#4 Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Good ole trusty basic mascara that almost every make up bag find a home in. Why? Because it delivers great results for an unbeatable price! I love that the wand is so basic, and is able to bend to make application costomized to my needs. With the SHELF LIFE (or lack of) for mascara, this bargin makes even more sense. I always go for Blackest Black in waterproof for my every day lashes. 🙂

$3.84 at Target

#5 Maybelline Line Works Liquid eye liner

For my personal daily, dramatic eye look my “go to” is always a blacker than black liner. Ive tried MANY liquid liners (even more expensive brands) only to be disappointed. I look for true, trusty color that stays in place and has an easy application. This is the only liner Ive continually been in love with!

$5.94 at WalMart

I hope these suggestions help! I’d LOVE to know what any of your budget make up must haves are..gotta help one another out in these times.

To being kind AND budget friendly,

xoxo
