My Travel Beauty Companions

 

When celebrities endorse a product, brand or service, how much of what they say do you believe in? That’s right. But when a friend tells you all about the super delicious tarte tatin from the French café right around the corner, you can’t wait to try it out for yourself. That’s why I’m showing you the products that I brought along with me to my recent trip to Europe. Everything in here has my stamp of approval!

 

My Travel Beauty Companions

Cosmetic pouch by Mary Kay.

 

I love this Mary Kay pouch, which I received as a gift. It has a separable compartment in which I can put anything I want, as well as a flap where I can store my brushes – individually. Perfect for travels!
