Tip of the Week: Beauty Hack

One of the most valuable tips I can give to my fellow female travelers out there is actually a make up hack!

In the past month I have traveled from NYC to Florida to the Caribbean back to NY and then to Europe. It all started when I went cruising with one of my very best friends to the Bahamas. After the cruise I went to visit one of my other very best friends in Orlando! Had the most amazing vacation drinking rum punches and laying in the sun. I’ve now settled into my home in Germany and have just returned from another great vacation in Croatia! Needless to say I’ve had A LOT of sun!

I don’t know how you all feel about it but I LOVE being tan! The only draw back about being tan….is that I just picked out the perfect foundation and tinted moisturizer and now its to light! Don’t get me wrong I go make-up free A LOT. However, if I’m going out for drinks with friends or to a nice dinner with my boyfriend I want to look nice and put some makeup on.

Not to worry…I’ve got a perfect solution. In the summer I tend to only use tinted moisturizer (especially because it has SPF) but for occasions where I want to look extra flawless I use double-wear foundation. I buy them to match my au’ natural color. When I need to bump up the color to match my new tan I use St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Glow Face Lotion. Just mix a small pea size amount into your foundation of choice. It looks completely natural and will wash off with the rest of your makeup without altering your color or leaving you streaky in any way! I also recommend the foam self tanner if you are looking for more color! Great line of products!
