Memorial Day officially kicked off summer last weekend, which means that the season is in full bloom with warmer weather, skin that glows, a bronze hue and the onset of summer travel. So in honor of this coveted season, I have partnered with Elizabeth Arden to share a few of their newest summer beauty products as well as some fabulous summer travel beauty tips from their radiant Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo.
First, checkout some of their new and cult favorite products that are sure to to make your skin radiant and glowing while you travel this summer:
Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum ($72) These brilliant individual Ceramide Serum filled capsules are an all time favorite Elizabeth Arden product. Each capsule contains a concentrated dose of skin identical Ceramides that instantly infuses your skin with a silky smooth youth-restoring serum that repairs, smooths, supports, firms and hydrates your skin. You will especially love using these when you travel this summer, because airplane travel tends to dehydrate your skin and this potent little capsule immediately revitalizes your skin and makes it softer and smoother.
The Original Eight Hour Cream ($19.50) is a legendary, award-winning multi-tasking skin balm made out of a combination of petrolatum, beta-hydroxy and vitamin E. What makes this product so amazing is that it truly does it all! It soothes and restores dry skin, calms sunburns, softens cuticles and dry cracked feet, heals rough spots and it is also a secret weapon for makeup artists for adding shine and hydration. This is a must-have product for your travel arsenal this summer because flying tends to dehydrate your skin and this emollient balm will instantly boost your skin’s moisture.
Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup ($36.50) This is a new and improved version of Elizabeth Arden’s best-selling Cream Makeup. The reformulated version is infused with micronized diamond powder which reflects light, diffuses the look of imperfections and immediately diminishes the look of fine lines, pores, blemishes, scars and dark spots. This wonderful foundation is lightweight and it immediately smooths your skin making it look more even, luminous and radiant. This is perfect for using on-the-go while traveling because it transforms your skin instantly.
Beautiful Color Radiance Blush ($26) is a new color-true, high-pigment buildable coverage blush with optical diffusers that reflect light and diminish the appearance of imperfections. This lovely blush also has added antioxidants to help protect your skin from environmental damage. Blushing Pink (shown below) is a gorgeous Spring/Summer hue and the perfect shade to add a rosy glow to your summer tan.
Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss ($18) is a fabulous new gloss with a silky smooth texture and lustrous shine with a nice color payoff. This yummy gloss is infused with Mango and Shea butter for superb hydration and a proprietary ingredient called Maxi-lip™ that makes your lips look fuller and plumper. Sunset (shown below) is a perfect flattering Spring/Summer pink coral hue and the built-in mirror is perfect for on-the-go application during your summer vacay!
Now that I’ve shared some FAB products from Elizabeth Arden, here are some useful beauty tips to use during your travels this summer from Elizabeth Arden’s Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo:
- Skincare is even more important when traveling. I love multi-use products and ones that can be packed in a carry-on bag. The Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum deliver so much moisture. I apply mine mid-flight for extra hydration and also use as a makeup primer when traveling.
- Skin can get very dehydrated when flying, so Eight Hour Cream is essential! I apply to my lips before every flight and use it on my hands and elbows throughout flight. I like to warm up the product in the palms of my hands before applying to my skin, helping it activate and absorb quickly.
- Someone once told me that solids travel better than liquids, so now I never go anywhere without my Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup. It provides as much coverage as I need, without making a mess in my makeup bag.
Disclosure: Elizabeth Arden compensated me to write this post and also sent me the products that I reviewed in this post.
