I’ve made your travel season easy with the perfect makeup wardrobe that will keep you looking beautiful from day into evening. Here are 10 essential products… so look healthy, smile, drink water and have fun!

Tinted moisturizer – hydrating skin is my number one priority, but hiding my few blemishes and protecting my skin from sun damage is essential, too!

Cheeks: I always want a pop of color especially on my cheekbones to enhance my smile. NARS The Multiple has you covered. Apply-anywhere twist-up color stick can be used on lips, cheeks, and eyes. My favorite is Lamu.
