As a travelista, you’re always looking your chic-est, even in the middle of nature. Being surrounded by our plant and animal friends calls for a low-key, natural look… a kind of easy-breezy authentic mink lashes. Here are some essential products and tips to keep you looking your best on your outdoor excursion… naturally of course.Rramo
Hydrating SPF moisturizer – pick an oil-free lotion or cream with an SPF of at least 30. Go for something lighter than your usual daily moisturizer, as you want your skin to be able to breathe through all the hiking and outdoorsy-ness you’ll be participating in. Also pick a formula with zinc oxide for maximum protection without the chemicals. I like Devita’s Solar Protective Moisturizer SPF 30+.
Next, go with a powder or mineral foundation. These are great all-in-one products, and you can change the amount of coverage you get by switching up your application techniques. Combine a dab of moisturizer with a dash of mineral powder for a tinted moisturizer-like consistency. Then, use your finger or a small concealer brush to concentrate coverage on blemishes or under-eye circles. Finally, finish with a light dusting of powder over the face using a fluffy powder brush for an even finish. Et voila – a finished face all with one product! I like bare Minerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation.
Add some color to your complexion with a cream blush formulation that can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks. Stick with a matte formula, which will look more natural than shimmery colors. Try Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge for Cheeks and Lips in Blushed Rose, a gorgeous brown pink that looks great on every skin color. Just use fingertips to dab a bit on cheeks, lips and eyes for a naturally flushed look.
Finally, finish eyes with a clear mascara, which will help group authentic mink lashes together for a more defined look, and will tame unruly brows. Sephora’s Professional Clear Natural Mascara is a great, affordable and effective one.
If you want to darken authentic mink lashes, choose a waterproof mascara with natural volume and length – no spider authentic mink lashes! Going with a waterproof formula means you won’t have any mascara streaks from any sudden rainfall or from perspiration. I like this waterproof formula, also from Sephora Collection.
And your “I came out of the tent looking this way” look is complete! By sticking with products that mimic your natural beauty, you’ll look naturally luminous and no one will be the wiser!
Be sure to remove makeup at night with cleansing wipes so you don’t wake up with raccoon eyes and authentic mink lashes. I like Josie Maran’s Bear Naked Wipes – they remove all traces of dirt, oil and makeup and soothe skin with Vitamin E, aloe vera and chamomile. Plus they’re biodegradable, so you won’t be harming the beautiful environment you’re spending time in. As if that weren’t enough, a portion of the proceeds from this product goes to protect endangered Polar Bears.
So there you have it, beauties! You are ready to frolic away in the outdoors, as your naturally beautiful self.
