Travel Makeup Essentials 

Does anyone else struggle when it comes to packing makeup?? I’ve always dreaded having to pick & choose which beauty products to bring along with me because I’m so used to having endless options at my fingertips! (or at my vanity…) I always seem to regret bringing at least 1 or 2 things while away BUT I finally got it right on my last trip to California.  Watch to see all of my trustee travel products & hear why I think you should consider packing them on your next trip!
