Today The Italian Eye will be revealing some travel beauty products of the Fairy Godmother’s makeup bag. To get out of the plane like Cinderella at the Grand Ball.
Perfect for the Skin
Starting off with the face, the effect of a moisturizer cannot be exaggerated because flaky dry skin immediately ruins even the most beautiful make-up look. However, a traditional moisturizer takes at least 10 minutes to sink in.
A brilliant alternative is the aloe vera based Skin Healing Gel from Rejuvi: it absorbs after a minutes and leaves the skin fresh and smooth.
Additionally, in the case of blemishes or imperfections, the Tea Tree Targeted Gel in a small lip-gloss-like container from The Body Shop will eliminate them with the powerful natural purifying ingredient.
The face acts as a canvas for a beautiful painting, so the flawless base is one of the most essential steps in the make-up routine. Liquid foundations tend to spill, be hard to blend and require a brush, so when on the go, the powder foundation works wonders. Naked Skin from Urban Decay evens out the skin tone with a few strokes of a sponge that already comes in the compact. Moreover, the product comes in a variety of colors and undertones. Making it easy to find the perfect match.
Eyes as the Windows to the Soul
Defining the eyes is crucial because it is the first focus point of your interlocutor. However, it is rather inconvenient to carry a large eye shadow palette.
So Urban Decay has come out with the Naked Basics. The product includes 6 shades for a wearable natural look. With the colors that double as the contour and highlight as well as the eyebrow powder.
While mascara is important, not a single volumizing or lengthening formula can do the miracles that the Advance Volumieré Eyelashes Concentrate Serum 3 in 1 by Eveline Cosmetics can do. This product strengthens your natural lashes after just a week of using it before bed or as mascara primer, making the false lashes seem nothing more than a waste of money.
Lastly, for the eyes is a double-ended Eye Defining Pen by Tom Ford that allows to create a smudge proof wing for any taste.
A Key to Luscious Lips
The safest option when it comes to lips is usually wearing a lip balm. Since the creamy lip products usually smudge easily; while the matt liquid lipsticks dry out the lips a lot. The following is not an issue anymore because the Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks by NYX stay on for hours while keeping the lips soft and kissable. Now the only question to worry about is whether to go bold or boring with an amazing selection of shades in the store.
It has been proven by a number of studies that washing your hair every day leads to the increased production of oil by the scalp. As the shampoos tend to dry it out.
As a result, the Dry Shampoo XXL Volume by Bastiste is a perfect alternative: to freshen up the look and to add some volume without weighting down the hair.
Moreover, for the more mature women or those who have their hair dyed, the outgrown roots are a constant struggle that comes back every 3 weeks. Thus, a quick solution to an unflattering look is the Magic Retouch Hair Root Concealer by L’Oréal. Since a few sprays are capable of tricking everyone into thinking that you just got out of the salon.
Nothing looks worse than chipped nail polish. Nevertheless lots of nail vanish removers tend to have a rather nasty smell. And have a potential of spilling inside your bag: leading to a disaster. As a solution, the Swiss brand, Mavala, presented its Nail Polish Remover Pads. It comes in a little plastic case, already soaked in the odor-free liquid. Natural clean bare nails are always a more elegant option than the halfway gone old manicure.
One of the rising issues in the beauty community is a number of chemical deodorants. As there are theories that state that they may be correlating with breast cancer. Knowing this disturbing research topic, it is a safer option to stick to natural fragrance-free antiperspirants. Like the Deo Pure by Biotherm: it will keep you fresh through the long stressful days.
It is also always pleasant to refresh with a spritz of your favorite perfume. Without dragging around a heavy glass bottle. The following is exactly what the cute colourful Fragrance Vaporisateurs by Travalo give a chance to do. With an added bonus of being the perfect size to take on the plane.
The last product on the list is a compact Snap Razor in a plastic case from Gillette because its packaging allows to prolong the life span of the blade by keeping it safe and sharp for as long as possible.
