TOP 5 BEAUTY ESSENTIALS WHEN TRAVELING

You guys, we are taking our first family vacation of 2017 and I am so excited I could scream! 
The kids are at a perfect age, Ben is 5, Emme is 2 and honestly I don't know who is happier about this vacation, them or me. I say ME! And while a vacation with kids is no walk in the park, I am just happy we are blessed enough to go on the ultimate family vacation.
So when it comes to traveling with kids, you have to be very smart about what you are bringing along, if it were up to me I would bring my whole house in my suitcase but reality is the less you pack the better. The key is to be proactive with your packing skills and you'll be ready to enjoy your vacation seamlessly. If you know me, you know that I am a planner. I have been planning our OOTD's for weeks and of course I have our agenda ready to go. And even though this vacation will be all about the kids (and kids at heart;)) I want to make sure I look put together and feel great, these photos will be around forever after all. 
So for today's post I am sharing my Top 5 Beauty Essentials when Traveling with Kids and I've partnered with Neutrogena to share my beauty tips for a mama on the go like me. So I don't want to spend a whole lot of time doing my makeup while I am on vacation, time is of the essence and I want to enjoy my days with the kids as much as I can. I truly want to take it all in and enjoy the moments. But let's face it, this mama wants to look cute too! So I am giving myself under 10 minutes to get this face ready so I need reliable and effective beauty products. Below are my beauty and makeup must haves while traveling: 
SUN PROTECTION is a must. No matter where you are traveling to.
 I use the Neutrogena's Beach Defense® Sunscreen Spray, I love the spray formula because it's easy to apply and doesn't get messy. It provides beach strength broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection in a lightweight, fast absorbing mist. 
MOISTURIZE. No matter where I am I always keep up with my beauty routine, even when I travel, except I simplify it. So I pack beauty products that work all day and keep my skin fresh and hydrated. Which is why I love Neutrogena's Hydro-Boost Water Gel, I've raved about it numerous times before because it's that good. It's long lasting and keeps my skin glowing and refreshed all day. 
"NO MAKEUP" MAKEUP LOOK. For a natural makeup look I use the SkinClearing Liquid Makeup in Natural Beige (60), I love that this foundation is light weight, shine free and naturally covers my blemishes while letting my skin breathe. I just dab it on with my beauty blender, apply my SkinClearing concealer, a little blush and my MoistureSmooth Color Stick I am ready to go. I love that the MoistureSmooth Color Stick conditions my lips and it contains shea butter, you can actually feel the moisture immediately when you apply. It glides right on like a balm, I will be bringing the Pink Nude (100) shade for daytime as well as the Classic Red (160) for night time. This natural makeup look is a favorite of mine, my skin is smooth, glows and it's perfect for fun day with the kids. 
As stressful as a family vacation can seem, you have to try to not stress the little things. I am simplifying it all and praying for a smooth ride all along. It's my motto this vacay, I want my kids to enjoy themselves and I want us to make memories that will last a lifetime. So did you guess it? Do you know what our ultimate family vacation is? 
Drum roll please...

We are going to DISNEY World and I cannot wait! And what's most exciting about my collaboration with Neutrogena? I am so excited to share that Neutrogena has partnered with the new Beauty and the Beast movie and one of my favorite looks inspired by Belle is the natural makeup look using the MoistureSmooth Stick I mentioned above, #100 in Pink Nude. I love this color because it has the perfect amount of pink and nude for a beautiful everyday look.
