If you did not know I am currently in Florida, for just a few more hours when this post goes up, I will be headed home today. Anyway, a trip is always an excuse for a few blog posts for me and this time around I thought it would be fun to share my travel makeup and skincare, I will warn you, this is not about packing lightly for me because I am a serious over-packer, but I thought it still might be fun to share what I brought along with me to Florida. You might want to grab and drink and a snack before settling in, like most of my blog posts.
Love, Beauty & Planet Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Shampoo and Conditioner – These are things that I have to bring along, of course, otherwise, my hair would be super gross by the end of this trip. I’m still using these and still loving them.
Lush Calacas Shower Gel – Is my all time favorite shower gel and one of the few things my husband and I can agree on, so this is typically what we travel with because while I am a huge overpacker, sometimes I try to conserve some space.
Pacifica Sugared Amber Dreams Perfume – This is my all time favorite perfume and the only one that I use on a regular basis, so into the bag this one went.
Bliss Makeup Remover Wipes – These are new and I have never tried these, so I am really hoping these don’t both me, but I figured out trip would be a good time to try it out and if worse comes to worse then I will get makeup wipes in Florida.
Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner – As you know, this is my all time favorite leave-in conditioner and it has to come with me, otherwise, what am I really doing with myself?
Wet Brush – I am debating between this and a wide tooth comb still, but I think this is what I’m going to end up bringing along so I can brush my hair.
Pixi Glow Tonic – Another favorite product of mine, I have been through plenty of these bottles and am still loving this stuff, so of course into the bag, this one goes as well.
Degree Motion Sense Deodorant – This is just what I’m using right now for deodorant, well this and a way more natural one but I haven’t switched completely yet, so since Florida is hot I figured I would bring this one along.
Various Face & Sheet Masks – Because I am really loving doing face masks and what is more relaxing on a vacation? I am very much excited to try all of these out and to do far too many face masks on my trip.
Philosophy Purity Face Wash, Moisturizer and Eye Gel – These are all small sizes that I recently picked up in a little set and I love this line so much, so color me excited to try all of these products out.
Philosophy Time In A Bottle Serum – I just wanted to try out this serum and needed a serum to go along with me on the trip, plus this seemed like a really great serum to pair with all of my other little Philosophy minis that I’m taking with me.
Tarte Swamp Queen – A palette that I haven’t touched in a while but thought would be fun to pull out, dust off and bring along with me to Florida, where the swamps are.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance – I can’t leave without my all time favorite eyeshadow primer, this stuff is the best and I just really love it.
Julep Length Matters Mascara – I have been using this one recently and will probably be finished with it here shortly, but for now, I am loving it and thought it would be a great addition since I already know that I love it.
Fenty Killa Watt Foil in Mimosa Sunrise and Sangria Sunset – I had to have this when it came out and have barely touched it, so with the other things that I am bringing along I thought this would be a fun addition, so into the bag it goes.
Stila Stay All Day Liner in Intense Black – I have been using the Physicians Formula liquid eyeliner for so long that I thought I would mix it up a little bit on this trip with the eyeliner instead of my trusty one.
Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in In The Nude – Love this stuff for putting on my waterline and making my eyes look bigger, it does a fantastic job at that.
Ace Beaute Slice of Paradise Palette – I haven’t touched this nearly enough since I picked it up, so of course I threw it into the bag, this just seems like a really fantastic pick for the state of Florida if you ask me.
Essence Volume Booster Lash Primer – I recently hauled this in one of my far too many Ulta purchases, I like it but am still testing it, so once again I thought this would be a great addition to my makeup bag for this trip.
NYX HD Blush in Taupe – Is my favorite contour right now and I’m also working on it in my project pan, so I am using it non stop which means it has to come with me.
Max Fix+ Coconut Mini – I am using this as my setting spray at the moment again and I am loving it, super excited to break this out on my trip.
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso – Is a blush that I don’t use enough but also something that fits into this Florida vibes makeup picks that I have going on, I’m not sure why but I really enjoyed picking out things that reminded me of the state in one way or another.
Benefit The Porefessional Primer – Is something that I love using when I want my makeup to look flawless and because it’s vacation, I clearly want my makeup to look perfect, so into the bag, this one goes.
Becca Backlight Priming Filter – I want to look dewy sometimes so I thought bringing this along would be a great addition if I get that urge to be a glowing goddess.
Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Foundation in F1 – This has been the foundation I have been using all month, I’m really enjoying it so I wanted to continue using it, I might review this one if you guys are interested.
Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C1 – This just made sense to come along with me, even though I am almost finished with another concealer, but I really like this one and thought it would be a great time to try out the foundation and concealer together.
Nars Single Eyeshadow in Andromeda – This is something I have been using for a more natural highlighter recently and I have been loving this, so of course I had to bring this with me.
Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder – This has been what I’ve been using as a powder, which is why I’m going to continue using it on this trip.
Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Baby Love – This is my all time favorite blush because it is super cute and it goes with all of the things, I take this on every single trip with me and I’m a big fan of it.
Ofra Pillowtalk Highlighter – This is a stunning and blinding highlight that I am jazzed to try out more while in the state of Florida.
Caked Cosmetics Lip Fondant in Fan Girl – Another item that is sitting in my collection unloved, so what better time than on this trip to bring this one out and try it out? I don’t think there is.
Urban Decay Hi-Fi Lip Shine in 1993 – I love this shade and while it seems perfect for fall, I thought it would be a nice option to have with me.
Lime Crime Plushie in K, bye – Is a shade that I am excited about and a formula that I really love, so jazzed to try this out on my trip.
Etude House Dear Darling Tint in Pk003 – I love these though I am concerned this won’t be a shade that I love, either way, I am excited to get a chance to try it out on my trip.
Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in Creamsicle – This is a shade that I wasn’t sure I was going to love but I really do, it’s such a pretty and creamy peach kind of shade that I think will be great on this trip.
And that is everything that I have packed to bring down to Florida with me, well, mostly all of it. In true Nicole fashion, I have thrown in a couple of extra items and taken a couple out, I can never really make up my mind on these sort of things. Anyway, I’m super jazzed about Florida writing this and am curious if you guys might like to see some outfits from my trip and/or some food/exploring Orlando posts?
What are some of your travel essentials?
