Travel Tips: My Favorite Hand, Body, and Lip Moisturizers

blog-1

The one item I most often forget to pack when I travel is body or hand lotion. For one, the travel sizes barely make it through a few days, and second, the thought of spilled lotion on any clothes in my suitcase is kind of a nightmare.   The worst part is, the soap on airplanes, and in hotels is literally the most drying stuff on the planet. Seriously though, WTF is up with that stuff? I recently discovered two products that hydrate and protect skin wonderfully AND they are great for... Read The Rest →

WARNING: What I am about to introduce you to might end up in a new (slightly more expensive then what you may be using now) skincare routine. Sorry?

How To Pack a Hat

How to Pack a Hat

Hats.  I love them, but traveling with them is a pain.  In the past I’ve always taken my hat as a carry on, but it still gets bent, covered in mystery fuzz and besides…it’s annoying. I did a quick search on how to pack a hat and found a video on how to easily pack a hat from the Travel+Leisure blog. You can watch it here. Here’s the breakdown: 1)Flip hat upside down and fill with soft items: socks, undies, bathing suit 2) Flip hat right side up and place in the bottom of suitcase. Roll... Read The Rest →

You Will Love At Least One of These Dry Shampoos

You will love at least one of these dry shampoos.

Claiming it. If you haven’t found a dry shampoo that makes your world go round, one of these will. I’ve tried them myself, and like them all for different reasons. For those of you who aren’t on the dry shampoo band wagon yet – COME TO THE DARK SIDE.  It’s fun! You don’t have to wash your hair everyday,  (ps. the vast majority of us shouldn’t be anyway – I will write about this later) AND your hair will thank you. You know those days when you’re staring in the... Read The Rest →

You Need This Lip Balm

Lip balm, chapstick, lip chap. Whatever you want to call it – I don’t know anyone who hasn’t needed this stuff at some point in their lives. Men, I’m talking to you too! I’ve used different formulas from all over the world, and Aquaphor Lip Repair really is the best I’ve found. I promise you it works.  It really, really works. Most chapsticks are formulated with waxes to “help protect” in wind or sun exposure, but as you know, most of them have the opposite effect. Your lips end up feeling more... Read The Rest →

The #1 Key to Applying Makeup (and you already have it.)

home depot, makeup mirror, magnifying mirror, makeup, carly campbell

  The NUMBER ONE key to your makeup looking good is pretty simple – proper lighting. The number one place to find it?  In front of a window. For approximately zero dollars. Or – perhaps in your (parked) car after you get to work 15 mins early (me). Furthermore, and this makes me CRAZY, it seems like every hotel I stay at has a mirror attached to a wall in a poorly lit bathroom.  I always end up doing my makeup by the window out of a tiny compact mirror. This is... Read The Rest →

How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

I am a serial makeup brush washer when it comes to my brushes in my working kit.  I have a whole process that I won’t get into here because there are a lot of extra steps I take to keep my kit sanitized and clean.  Instead, I want to share how I wash my personal brushes.  There are a few tricks you can take to preserve the life of your brushes, keep them clean, AND ensure they apply makeup correctly.  Here’s a little guide: S T E P  O N...

How to cleanse your skin

howtocleanse2

First, let me start off my saying I’m not a doctor. My advice shouldn’t replace your healthcare professional’s, rather use it as a consideration into your routine.  That being said, I truly feel like I am an expert at washing my face…I’ve been doing it for a reeeally long time, AND I’m a little OCD about it. I’ve been through it all – dry skin, oily skin, acne…allergic reactions. No one’s experience is ever the same, but I can empathize. That being said, I think the basics of cleansing your...

I think... Read The Rest →

NYFW

New York Fashion Week. It’s kind of as crazy as it sounds. An opportunity to assist Seiji, a renowned stylist with The Wall Group, on a presentation for the label Joyrich popped up and I thought about it for about 2 seconds before I decided to head out. I packed my bag full of every tool I own except the one that has been taking up space in my bag for years and I never use. The one I would end up needing. The curling iron the size of my pinky....
