3 Products That Will Turn Up The Glow Even When You're Traveling!

Hi there, my darlings! If there's one thing Summer usually brings, other than heat, then I have to say it's the opportunity to socialize and more importantly, travel! Most of us are usually much more on-the-go during the Summer than any other season (although Fall comes at a close second for me, personally!). For us makeup lovers, we want to always look our best but with rising costs of checked luggage and weight limits galore, we don't want to be lugging around heavy makeup palettes. Minimal is the way to go! So, today, I'll be sharing 3 products that will help you keep up with my favorite trend, aka HIGHLIGHTING, but without the need to carry that beloved but oh-so-bulky highlighter palette!


When we're traveling, as much as we love our makeup, we just don't have the time for a complicated highlight and contour routine. Sometimes, actually almost all the time, you want to get your makeup done, make sure you're looking good and run out the door to the beach/pool/party/barbecue.

For a subtle but gorgeous all-over glow, I'm loving YSL Beauty's Touche Éclat Glow Shot in Sunrise. Yes, at $42.00, it's on the pricier side but a little goes a long way when you mix a couple of drops with your regular foundation or BB cream so this little tube should last you just about forever!


Have a special occasion to attend while you're traveling? Want to make sure you stand out in the crowd at that party? A bold highlight is the way to go! You can layer on your favorite highlighter, either over your foundation or over your blush, for a bold, eye-catching look.

My recommendation? I've recently discovered that Model's Own has launched at Ulta Beauty and I have been falling in love with every product I try! The Sculpt and Glow Highlighter Stick in Moonlight is the perfect example! This intense highlighter comes in an easy-to-use roll-up tube that is just perfect for travel. No spills, lightweight and at just $11.99, you can layer it on to your heart's content!


Traveling but the sun is not your friend? Like yours truly? Sunbathing is not an option for me! While I'm already naturally tan, some of you out there may want to come back from your travels looking all tan and bronze, without the risk of burning in the sun.

For a naturally warm, bronzed look, I love Mally Beauty's Evercolor Poreless Face Defender Boost. You can smooth it on for a lightweight, matte finish to your makeup that is formulated to work for all skin tones. I like to use it as a easy, natural contouring product that's super easy to blend with the included buffed-edge Japanese sponge!

So there you have it, my darlings! 3 unique products that will help you turn up the glow, even when you're traveling or short on time!
