Ready to hit the road? Pack minimally (like soon-to-be-momma, Gisele Bundchen)…
Â Â The summer season is often filled with last-minute vacations, quick weekends away or extended visits with family, so many Makeover Momma’s are left wondering what to pack on the fly. Instead of going overboard with products, try packing your purse with three, multitasking masters (and leave the rest behind!)
Â Â Â * For Day-To-Night Lip Color: Avon Spectra-Color Lipstick
Â Â We cannot rave enough about this genius product (which we may or may not have been whipping out and showing friends, family and random people at the grocery store at any given chance). This marker-like lip color virtually carries 7 shades of lip color in one product (with the consistency of lip gloss), is under $10, and can range from light, frothy daytime shades to deep, sexy nighttime colors. All you have to do is set the lipstick to your desired shade level (ranging from 1 to 7), pump out some glossy product, and put it on “lock” once you’re done (so no in-your-diaper-bag messes). Did we mentioned we love this thing? For more reviews, check out a fellow mom’s opinion atÂ A Mom In Red High Heels, or click here for Spoiled Pretty’s video review.
Â Â Â * For Dynamite Eyes: E.L.F. Earth and Water Mascara
Â Â If you don’t know where your vacation or weekend might bring you (whether playing in the pool orÂ hanging at the park), bring a mascara that does work in both dry and wet environments. This easy-to-use (and pack) mascara from E.L.F. contains both waterproof and standard mascara
Â Â Â * For The Perfect Complexion: Revlon Custom Creations Foundation
Â Â It may seem impossible to pack facial makeup that will match your skin perfectly while you’re away (without taking up tons of room), but bringing a one-color-fits-all foundation is the way to go. Start by applying a thin layer of Revlon’s product to your face in the perfect shade for your skin,Â and use a small amount of a darker shade for “bronzer” (rub in a soft, circular motion across your temples, cheekbones and nose), or small dots ofÂ the lighter color for concealer (on blemishes or under-eye circles). Really, that’s all you need!
* If you could pack only three things for a weekend away, what would you pack?
