Hello, Voyagers!

So! Some people, I've heard tell, are opposed to wearing makeup while on vacation. (WTF?!, you're thinking. I KNOW!!!!) Anyhoo, I, myself, am against that, #obvs. I know by now we've all got Beautycam, but, c'mon, if you're a makeup-wearer at home, be one abroad! Basic makeup is something you won’t regret doing, because, you’re going to want to be in photos, sometimes even without sunglasses!

In NOLA. Glad I put on mascara that day.

Ya got 6 minutes? Then you got time for 8 items: mascara, brow color, 2 eyeliners: Always Sharp from Smashbox for waterline and Kat von D Tattoo liner for your top lid, NARS inappropriately named blush/bronzer, light foundation & HD powder. And, of course, always Kat Von D lipcolor. I love the shade Lolita:

Lolita. The prettiest shade of all.

<5 minutes=6 items: leave out the extra eyeliner for top lid, and leave out the blush.

you don’t need to bring all 55 glosses.

<3 minutes=5 items: Lancôme waterproof mascara that doubles as eyeliner, brow color, bronzer, tinted spf or concealer & Lolita lip color.

<90 seconds=4 items: waterproof mascara, bronzer, tinted spf/concealer & Lolita lip color.

Lancôme mascara used as eyeliner. Done and done.

<30 seconds=3 items: tinted spf/concealer, Lolita lip color…and sunglasses! (Bring the mascara with you and apply it as soon as you find a mirror!)

Finally, if you know you’ll have zero time to get ready in the morning, then the night before, get out your makeup and pre-apply your products to their respective brushes. That’ll save you a good 90 seconds!

Now, go forth. Make chic happen.
