Do you know that feeling when you've been living out of a suitcase for a stretch and all the packing and re-packing is getting to you, and you finally just start wearing the same pair of jeans everyday because it involves way too much thinking to do anything else?  That's me right now.  So, I've simplified things and narrowed down not only my clothes, but my top 3 make-up items: powder, mascara and lip gloss. 
Let's talk about the powder first. This is one place where I splurge because I think that a really good powder makes a big difference. I just recently tried Clarins Express Compact [above] and I love, love it. It's a powder/foundation combo that makes your skin appear smooth and flawless, but is incredibly light. Plus it smells great.  Next up, the mascara and this is where I buy at the drug store...L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara rocks.  It makes your lashes full, but not clumpy.

And lastly, the lip gloss...what can I say, I'm a child of the 80's and I love the stuff!  I get it anywhere from the drug store to department stores to the free gifts with purchase.  My favorite lately, though, has been DiorShow Gloss.  It's got a glittery shine to it that's pretty not disco costumey.  And it stays on for a good while, too.

So, those are my edited beauty picks for when you are travel-weary and just want to appear like you aren't completely worn-out!  Do you have any travel tricks?
