Travel Diaries

I am so happy to be a guest Blogger for Your Basic Beauty!


This semester I am studying abroad in Florence, Italy! This amazing opportunity has already led me to visit several countries on the weekends. That being said, it has been difficult for me to minimize my makeup bag and just travel with essentials. After being here for a little over a month, I finally have it down! 

YSL Mascara: Favorite mascara right now. Gives a crazy amount of volume especially with two coats! 

Sephora Green Tea Eye Mask: Perfect to use before or after a flight to minimize puffiness under your eyes! 

Glam Glow’s Lip Treatment: (disclaimer- Found this gem in Italy) Really love this new lip balm. Very moisturizing and has a nice subtle tint! 

India Hicks Rollerball Perfume:  One of my favorite scents! The rollerball is essential for traveling! 

Wander’s Rise and Prime: This primer and balm duo is perfect as a base or a coverup for any spots! 

Wander's On the Glow: This duo is perfect as the highlighter and bronzer are amazing for more vibrant and natural looking skin. 

Hourglass Lipstick (color = Grace): The perfect nude lip that won't dry out your lips. Looks amazing on everyone! 

Hourglass Eyebrow Pencil: As someone with light colored eyebrows, this pencil is perfect for a natural daytime look! I have found fuller eyebrows make you look more awake and rested even when you are not!
