What To Pack In Your Makeup Bag For A Summer Trip

What to pack in your summer travel beauty bag

PRODUCT DETAILS

 

Hello from down south! I’m on a road trip from Chicago through the southwest and onto Texas! I’ve packed all my hot weather essentials like my swing dresses, fedoras, and of course, sunscreen. This is a trip we do every year because I receive much needed medical help in Texas for my eyes. Let’s just say, without the wonderful doctors I have, I probably wouldn’t be able to write to you right now.

We are out here for a week (or more) and have a few things on our agenda. Last time we went to Texas I visited Magnolia and a few museums here and there. This time around, I have a list of great cafes  I want to check out.

I’ve been wanting to feature more behind the scenes stuff like where I eat, shop, and travel to, so I hope I can get some great posts from this trip!

Like always, I’m squeezing a weeks worth of clothing into a carry on although we are road tripping. I’m using the file fold method (more about that here) and my storage cubes.

A few things I’m looking forward to wearing include this ruffled swimsuit, this maxi dress which is , and these denim shorts. All of which are perfect for the hot Texas sun.

Speaking of, do you have any travel plans for summer? Let me know in the comments below!

 

WHAT I’M PACKING IN MY MAKEUP BAG FOR THIS TRIP: 

ONE: This makeup setting spray is so amazing and everything proof – sweat proof, water proof, cry proof! I took this with last time and the Texas sun had nothing on me.

TWO: Trips mean long times in air conditioning, sweatiness, and polluted areas. These alpha beta peels pads are like mini facials that leave you glowing and feeling clean. I packed about 7, one for each day.

THREE: I’m ditching the pale party for a week and self tanning using the Purity Mousse from St. Tropez. It smells like tropical heaven too.

FOUR: If you don’t have foundation darker than your skin, this bronzing mist is great for self tanning! I love it because I can spray it on at night and wake up looking golden and healthy. No makeup needed for those extra hot days.

FIVE: A perfect contour, one box away. This is one of the most flattering bronzers on the market and it’s so subtle so you can layer or make your contour deeper.

SIX: Chanel makes a beautiful foaming gel and this one fits perfectly in my makeup bag. This cleansing gel is so luxurious without being over the top (in terms of smell)

SEVEN: Don’t take all your blush and eyeshadows with, just take this palette. Has every summer color you may need and fits really well into most makeup bags. I accidents smashed the bronzer (hence the one above) so I have to bring the extra.

EIGHT: Gel eyeliner from Bobbi Brown is waterproof, sweat proof, and cry proof. So that means it’s perfect for warm weather trips.

NINE: I like to bring this every wear I go in case my self tan doesn’t work out (I’m not very good at upkeep!). This foundation is very light weight and doesn’t smudge in the heat. Just set it with the spray!

TEN: You want strong brows, like the tropical goddess you are! I love a good defined brow so I bring along my Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade to do the trick.

ELEVEN: And of course, I never leave the house without red lipstick – which works no matter what vacation you’re taking. Red lipstick is always so elegant.

  • Question: Perfume, Eau du parfume, Eau du toilette...do you know the difference between these?
-

This blog post was inspired by an event I attended with @diptyque the other week. There are so many different terminologies used in Perfumery and the history of Perfume is so interesting! I've read several books on the topic which I will share in my stories in case you are interested in learning more. What does the Perfume you wear say about you?

  • Do you have a pair of comfortable snow boots ready for winter?
-
No matter how mild, winters are always a rather challenging time for our skin, with exposure to harsher temperatures and winds, as well as dry air. And most women forget to protect their feet as they venture out to their day to day errands.
-
Today on the blog, I'm sharing the snow boots I've tried on in the past month that are not only very warm and protective, but don't distract from any outfit. I think it's possible to be both warm and stylish, is it not? Click the link in my bio to read the post.

I am in love with these @sperry snow boots, as they are not only very warm, but look more elegant than my traditional winter hiking boots.

And I leave you with a winter quote:
“When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.” —Madeleine M. Kunin

  • Hello sweater weather, or should I say, sweater dress weather?
-
Question: Would you ever sacrifice style for comfort? Or the other way around? I wouldn't and my favorite way to combine elegance and comfort is in a sweater dress! They're easy to accessorize and perfect with fleece lined leggings - so no one knows you're secretly as cozy as you are with a jumper and joggers 😊

  • So very plaid indeed! 🍁🍂
-
This little plaid number has been my seasonal purse of choice because it’s perfect for adventuring with. Who else has seasonal purses they go through? 😆
-
I have my summer purse, my fall purse, my winter purse...and they get re-used until they break to bits. One way to be more conscious about your shopping habits is to create seasonal capsules that never go out of style. I consider this trench and this purse part of my autumnal capsule.

  • Does anyone actually read their coffee table books?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’d hope so - which is why today on ThePetiteBijou.com, I am sharing 18 of the best and most interesting fashion coffee table books. Not only to look nice sitting on your all white marble table but to actually read! 😆👗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Among these books is this one I’ve been reading called Fashion and Versailles which documents all the historical fashion events and traditions that have taken place in this French chateau. The history is so fascinating!

Check out the post via the link in my bio 💕 Do you enjoy reading coffee table books? My favorite are photo essays and history related.
