6 Beauty Must-Haves for a Girl on the Go

When it comes to makeup, I am an absolute minimalist – sunscreen and chapstick satisfy most of my beauty needs.  But there are times when I need a little extra. Whether I am running errands around town, taking a weekend road trip, or jet-setting overseas, I am always armed with my few basic essentials to keep me looking fresh throughout the day!

This 2 in 1 face lotion is a must for my every day routine. It does a great job at evenly moisturizing my face while not being to thick or heavy. It’s easy to forget sunscreen on a daily basis, so I love the added SPF. It’s a no brainer for even the busiest of days!

LUSH Shampoo Bar

Frequently traveling abroad, I got tired of packing my shampoo in those tiny little airline approved containers only to pull them out of my carry on bag for them to be checked at security. It’s a hassle and I was over it. So, I decided to try LUSH’s shampoo bars. They are solid and can be stored in a metal tin, making it very convenient for travel – no more hassle with airline liquid restrictions! Not only are these shampoo bars convenient for travel, but they are long-lasting, smell great, and work well with all hair types.

Epitomizing my “girl on the go” theme, Arrow is an active lifestyle beauty brand that I quickly fell in love with. I love their lip balm – it smoothes and hydrates my lips while giving them a soft pop of color to enhance my look. Perfect for an on-the-go touch up!

Yes this product has a strange name, but nonetheless, I use it for a number of things, sans the silky underwear.

Struggle with a shiny face mid-day? Feeling a bit sweaty and grimy post-gym? Need to bring life back to greasy limp hair?  Freshen up anywhere with a sprinkle of this powder! Silky Underwear is my round the clock, go-to item for just about everything.

Another LUSH product? Yes! Find out why I love them so much here.

This solid perfume is another great travel item as I strive for zero liquids in my carry-on bag. On a day to day basis, I keep it handy in my purse for whenever I feel like freshening up. My favorite scent is Vanillary and it is heavenly!

This is a recent find of mine and the first time I have ever ventured into actual makeup. I have found that recently I am desiring a smoother, more evened out look to my face and going bare just isn’t cutting it like it used to in my “younger” days – drats!

So I went on a hunt to find the most fool-proof, well-rounded cream and luckily I stumbled upon this product! I apply it like I would with any of my other lotions and it subtly refines my face giving it a more polished finish. Its coloring is very subtle, but just enough to give me the enhanced bare look that I am trying to achieve.

    1. Game changer right?? I just started using them this past year and now I’m always on the hunt for solid alternatives for my travel cosmetics. After using my shampoo bar, I let it air dry for a bit before popping it back into its container and I’m set to go!
