Ultimate Travel Hacks for Packing your Beauty Products




The kids start back to school in a few short weeks, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time for one last family vacation. Take a mini-vacation to the beach, amusement park, state park or take off on a mini-road trip. Whatever, you choose to enjoy the last days of summer before the kids go back to school make it memorable.

While traveling can be stressful for several reasons, let's try to focus on simplifying packing and storing your makeup and beauty supply. If you are like me, even when you try to stay neat and organized when packing your makeup and hair products, there still ends up being a whole lot of stuff that you don’t even use on the trip. Not to mention traveling with super spillable products that always seem to find their way on your favorite shirt or all over the inside of your makeup bag in transit.

If you have had any of these experiences or just want to be better organized on your upcoming trip here are some travel hack for packing your makeup and hair supplies.

1. Make a list


Before you even start packing sit down and make a list to ensure nothing is forgotten and these also keeps you from packing unnecessary items. The best way to start is to go through your daily routine and then think about which items can be left behind. Also consider multiple use items, such as your lipstick can also be used as a cheek stain.


2. Storing liquid Products

This technique can apply to sunscreen, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and any liquid products you can think of. If you need to pack the whole bottle take the lid off, place a sheet of plastic wrap over the opening, and replace the top. This hack will keep your clothes and makeup bag free of any spills.

Alternatively, you can opt out of bringing a full sized bottle and pack travel-sized stuff instead. However, if you are buying these from the store a lot of the products you like aren't offered in mini-sizes and often cost just as much as the full-sized counterparts. Instead, purchase reusable travel bottles you can fill with your products.

You never know when you or your family might need sunscreen or lotion of vacation. Instead of lugging around sunscreen all day try filling straws with the product. To do this simply fill a straw with whatever product you want and push it in with a cotton swab, so there is a bit of straw left on both ends. Clean off the excess with a napkin then use a pair of pliers to melt one end of the straw then the other to seal.

3. Better Storage

When packing your razor use a metal clip to cover the blade and prevent it from cutting any of your items. When packing your blush, compact powder, or eye shadow place a plastic powder puff or cotton pad on top of the makeup to prevent the powder from breaking. Also, an empty Tic Tac case or medicine bottle works perfectly for storing your hair pins and cotton swabs.

How to Fix Horrific Summer Tan Mistakes

With summer in full swing, we are constantly outside enjoying activities like camping, swimming, hiking and so much more. But while summer is fun it also brings a greater exposure to harmful rays that can result in unattractive sun tans on you legs, face or hands. We have all experienced raccoon eyes from wearing your sunglasses or farmers tans.

In this blog, we are going to look at some simple homemade methods to removing sun tans and reversing damage caused by sun exposure. These recipes use all natural ingredients so you can avoid using chemical based products.

1. Lemon, Cucumber and Rose Water

Ingredients:
  • Rose water - 1 tbsp
  • Cucumber Juice- 1 tbsp 
  • Lemon Juice- 1 tbsp
Instructions:
  1. Simply add all three ingredients together
  2. Apply to tan using a sponge or cotton ball
  3. Let sit for 10 minutes and then wash area with cool water

This mask is the most efficient method to getting rid of an unsightly sun tan. Cucumbers and lemons are a natural bleaching agent and will help lighten your skin tone. Lemons contain vitamins C which neutralizes the damage caused by the sun and the rose water soothes rejuvenates the skin. 

2. Tomato Face Mask

Ingredients:
  • Tomato pulp - 1 cup
  • Honey- 1 tbsp

Instructions:
  1. Mix the tomato pulp and honey together in a small bowl
  2. Apply mix evenly on your skin
  3. After 10 minutes wash your face or tan area with cold water
  4. Be shocked by the results.

If you don’t have time for this face mask simply slice a tomato and rub it gently on your face applying as much juice as possible. Let it soak into your skin to see an instant effect. Also, this will help protect you from the sun's rays.

3. Anti-Tan Milk and Honey Mask

Ingredients:
  • Milk - 4 tbsp
  • Honey- 1 tbsp
  • Lemon Juice- 2 tbsp

Instructions:
  1. Mix ingredients in a small bowl
  2. Use a sponge or cotton ball to apply evenly
  3. Make a thick layer by repeating step 2
  4. Let dry for 10-15 minutes
  5. Wash with cool water

Honey works to retain moisture while the milk and lemon have whitening properties. This is a great way to remove an unwanted tan and improve your complexion from your skin in a natural way.

Weird New Beauty Trends you Really Want to Try

Summer is in full swing and what a season it has been. In just a few short months, the world of beauty has been introduced to an utterly massive amount of new trends that mesmerize, enchant, and sometimes straight-up horrify us.
While some of these trends are sure to stick around for awhile we can only hope and pray most of these will fall off the face of the earth before we can refresh our Instagram feeds. Last year's summer beauty trends focused more on the dewy, natural no-makeup look. However, 2017 has produced lollipop lips (intentionally smudged), fake freckles, holographic and glitter obsessions. And not to mention the unicorn phenomenon that has somehow infiltrated all forms of our lives from bagels, frappuccinos, hair, nails and anything else imaginable.

While I can’t claim to be a fan of all of these trends, there’s no denying that there is something truly fascinating keeping us hooked. Whether you just want to try them in the safety of your own home or want to venture out, we all have wanted to try a few of these new trends. So without further ado, I will be presenting the unique and noteworthy beauty trends of summer 2017.

Glitter Everywhere:

Ah, glitter spreads everywhere and is impossible to get rid of. Try washing it off your hands……...see not going to happen.

At this point let's just assume if it’s a body part, chances are people have put glitter on it. Glitter and bedazzled lips, eyebrows, hair roots, beards, nails and the list goes on.

This sparkly trend brings back the disco-days of the 70’s and the 90’s flare. This look is great for a night out on the town, or a get together with friends. Just remember to keep it out of your eyes, and if you're using it in your hair, you will be finding glitter for months.



Lollipop Lips: AKA The Intentionally Smudged Look

This fun little look first was introduced during London’s Fashion week by M.A.C.
Essentially, to recreate this look color outside the lines of your lips to get the intentionally smudged lip color around your mouth…… No, really I am serious.


Fake Freckles:



Most women that grew up with freckles will probably roll their eyes at the idea of fake freckles, but out of all the new beauty trends, I like this one the most. Freckles seem to give off a fresh, natural, and youthful look. While most of these other trends seem to go over the top, freckles bring light and fun back to summer.

There are several options to choose from to obtain your freckles such as simply drawing them on with a brown liquid eyeliner or waterproof brow gel. Or if you want something that lasts a bit longer go for temporary freckle tattoos.



Unicorn Invasion:

Frappuccinos, bagels, hair, eyeshadow, lipstick, makeup brushes, nails and the list continues to grow daily. Transitioning from our fascination with galaxies of previous years, we now turn to magical creatures for inspiration. This beauty trend incorporates pastel colors, iridescence, glitter and shimmer to create a truly magical appearance. Because Unicorns don’t actually exist in the real world (Though we desperately wish they did), this trend is a fantastic example of thinking outside the box to create a very personal and beautiful style.

But no matter how much beauty trends might change we here at UnitWise will always be here to help grow your business. We hope you enjoyed these new beauty trends, please share your thoughts below. We hope you have a wonderful and safe weekend. For more beauty blogs visit UnitWise.com.

How to Keep Makeup on All Day During Summer

Happy Independence Day!! Cookouts, parties and firework shows!! We at UnitWise know you want to get back to your family, but we wanted to share some quick tips for sweat-proofing your makeup. Follow these five tips for keeping you fresh from the morning parade to night time fireworks.

1. Primer

Before applying your usual concealer and foundation take the time to use an oil-free primer. This will set your foundation making it last longer and prevent any face melting scenario.

2. Foundation

Use a damp blending sponge to apply foundation lightly. Thick coats of a foundation will cause you to look oily over the course of the day. Remember the less you put on, the less there will be to slide or melt off. Focus on concealing only the inner, deep-set part of your eyes and any problem areas.

3. Eyeshadow

Over the top glam is perfect for nights out with friends, but during summer cookouts try applying less eyeshadow for a more healthy radiance. Avoid cream eyeshadow which can crease in the heat and humidity. Use a damp brush for applying minimal eyeshadow powder.

4. Mascara

When selecting your mascara for the day go for a waterproof formula, or if you have sensitive eyes look for a weatherproof formula. Liquid eyeliners will also not smudge as an oil-based pencil will. So you can enjoy your activities outside with confidence without the worry of looking like a raccoon.

5. Blotting

Before leaving the house to make sure to bring extra powder to touch up your foundation. Also, blotting papers is an excellent way to whisk away any sweat and oil without adding more product. Adding more layers can build up over the day making your face appear cakey. Keep oil blotting sheets in your purse to quickly dab over your face to soak up excess oil without messing up your makeup.

We here at UnitWise hope you have enjoyed these tips for melt-proofing your summer time makeup. Have a safe and wonderful Independence day. For more beauty blogs visit UnitWise.com and please share your advice on how to melt-proof your summer makeup look in the comment section below.
