For a Beautiful Life—Travel

__________
“You don’t need money, just imagination”
———-

Why I love what I do
I try and live a beautiful lifestyle: makeup, healthy living, interior design, and travel. You don’t need money, just imagination and being able to celebrate what you have.

If I weren’t a makeup artist, I would
Travel the world as an adventurer.

I spend my free time
Traveling around the world, paddle-boarding in Miami where I own a weekend home, and deep-sea fishing. Anything on the water I love!

The makeup I always pack
Sunscreen, a great moisturizer, mascara, foundation, and lip gloss:
Buy SkinCeuticals Ultimate UV Defense Sport SPF 45, $37, at dermstore.com
Buy La Mer Crème de la Mer, $230 (2 oz.), at saksfifthavenue.com
Buy Blinc Kiss Me Mascara, $24, at sephora.com
Buy Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Forever Stay Lip Gloss in Playful Pink, $9.95, at CVS

For a cold destination, I add
Rich eye cream and lip balm:
Buy La Mer The Eye Balm Intense, $145, at saksfifthavenue.com
Buy Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15, $22.50, at sephora.com

For a warm destination, I need
Intense waterproof sunscreen and a hat:
Buy SkinCeuticals Ultimate UV Defense Sport SPF 45, $37, at dermstore.com
Buy AllSaints Felipe Hat, $80, at allsaints.com

When I travel to a new place, I must
Find the locals and ask them take me to see their side of things. I always hit up the local women for their beauty secrets.

The best beauty secret I learned while traveling
Slather yourself in oil (like coconut oil) right after a shower or a swim. Learned that in Bora Bora.

When I travel, I buy
Beauty products special to the area that can’t be found anywhere else. I love finding beauty treats from all over the globe.

My favorite beauty find from a trip
A pineapple oil from Bora Bora.

My go-to travel outfit
A jersey dress with flat sandals and a big scarf:
Buy Diane von Furstenberg Naudia Dress, $365, at Diane von Furstenberg
Buy Tuccia di Capri Custom-Made Sandals, $110–$350, at tucciadicapri.com
Buy Calypso Fano Scarf by EPICE S.A.R.L., $275, at calypsostbarth.com

A good travel partner
Someone who can go with the flow when unexpected things happen.

A good trip
Getting to do local things, not just following the tourist routes.

My best discovery on a trip
Everywhere I go, I find one. I love the Burren Perfumery in Ireland, a wonderful accidental find. I was on a road trip with my best friend, and we got lost and saw this little sign.

The strangest thing I’ve eaten but surprisingly enjoyed
Rattlesnake.

What I learned to cook from my travels
How to make a lot of fabulous cocktails. I’m not big into cooking, just eating.

My favorite travel destination
Somewhere I have never been.
