As a girl constantly on the go I am always looking for ways to make my bag a little lighter and more efficient while still having all the essentials I need on hand. Basically if it doesn’t fit in my carry-on-bag it isn’t coming. Having recently stopped by the Blog Meets Brand! event, I had the pleasure of meeting with the Elizabeth Arden team and learning some travel beauty tips from their Global Makeup Artist, Rebecca Restrepo.
Whether you will be away for a few days or weeks the Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum let you can bring just enough capsules for however long your away. They are compact and individually packed to ensure fresh product every time you apply. Ceramides comprise of 50% of the essential lipids found in the skin and are essential in maintaining defense against sign of aging. Rebecca Restrepo’s tip: apply mid-flight for extra hydration and also can be used as a makeup primer.
Since skin can get really dehydrated when flying another must have in the bag: The legendary Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream (created by Ms. Arden herself in 1930 and has yet to be changed) Rebecca Restrepo’s tip: apply to lips and use on hands and elbows throughout the flight. Warm up the product in the palms of your hands before applying to the skin to help activate absorption. This cream can also be used to shape brows, and smooths cuticles.
As for me, I am most excited to try the Elizabeth Arden NEW Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Sunset. After hearing about it at the event I can not get it off my mind. This bright fun gloss is fused with Mango, Shea Butter and Maxi Lip that is clinically proven to increase lip volume by 40%! There is even a convenient built-in mirror on the lid so you can apply it anywhere!
Some more great tips from Rebecca Restrepo:
– Since solids typically travel better then liquids try Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup. It provides as much coverage as needed, without making a mess in my makeup bag.
– Before landing after a long flight, a perfect pick-me-up is a touch of blush to brighten the cheeks, a swipe of brightening shadow to open the eye and a dab of rosy lip gloss. To achieve this fresh and well-rested look, Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar, Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Innocence and Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Sweet Pink are her go-to products.
