Traveling presents a few unique beauty challenges. Climate changes, sleep deprivation, stress – not to mention packing limitations, can all combine to make a hot mess. Add this to the fact that most of the time we travel for one of two reasons: Either for work, in which case we usually need to be polished and presentable; or for pleasure. If your travel is fun-related, then you’ll probably want lots of pictures, some even featuring yourself. You’ll also be meeting new people, or possibly visiting old friends. Either way, your makeup should put your game-face on, be effortless, portable and chic.
