Travel Confession — How to Pack Like a Pro

I’m getting ready to head out on a 2-week whirl-wind adventure through Europe — making stops in Italy, Greece, and Germany along the way. I can barely contain my excitement! For the past week I’ve been wracking my brain on how to pack for two weeks of fun (and different climates I might add) without going overboard on the luggage. The first thing that came to mind, makeup essentials of course! There’s a fine line to walk with selecting your makeup must-haves for an extended vacation so I headed off to Neiman Marcus to scope out their selection!

First on my list were a few lipsticks that would get me through my trip and take my looks from lounging on the beach, to shopping, to dinner and exploring the town. I ended up falling in love with the Bobbi Brown Lip Trio Set (exclusively at Neiman Marcus!). I’m normally much more of a bold lip kind of girl, but there was something about the muted, lady-like tones that got me hooked. And for good reason, I tested them out yesterday to see how flawlessly they could take me from day to night — I think the results (and number of compliments) speak for themselves!

Salmon was the perfect Summer shade of coral for my daytime work look.

Evening


Pale Mauve was up next. The slightly richer hue was perfect for my birthday dinner with the girls – it was slightly amped up but soft enough to not overpower the rest of my makeup.

Out on the Town


Finally the Soft Rose was my pick for the Jess Glynne concert we went to post dinner. She crushed it by the way.

Other Favorites Picked Up Along the Way:

 Bobbi Brown Lip Trio // Van Cleef Perfume // Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminator // Oribe Hair Texturizer // LeMetier de Beaute Foundation // Chantecaille Blush

Not Pictured: Darphin Hydrating Mask // Clarisonic Brush // Laura Mercier Cover-Up

Until next time!
