As the official start of summer approaches, I’m trying to get my closet and makeup bag ready for the sunny season. I got some help with what to keep in my summer travel makeup bag during Blog Meets Brand, an event where bloggers got to meet brand representatives.


One of the brands at Blog Meets Brand was Elizabeth Arden. They had several makeup artists on hand to give makeovers. Since I was already wearing almost a full face of makeup, the artist concentrated on my eyes, the only area where I didn’t have any product. She applied the Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Duo in Classic Khaki 01, the Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara in black and lined my lids with a black eyeliner.

After getting my eyes done, I sat in on a presentation from the Elizabeth Arden team. They shared summer makeup travel tips from Elizabeth Arden’s Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo and now, I will share them with you:

• 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.
• Before I land after a long flight, the perfect pick-me-up is a touch blush to brighten the cheeks, a swipe of brightening shadow to open the eye and a dab of rosy lip gloss. To achieve this fresh and well-rested look, Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar, Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Innocence and Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Sweet Pink are my go-to products.

I got samples of three of the products that Rebecca mentioned in her tips. Here’s what Elizabeth Arden says about the items and what my thoughts are thus far:
Ceramide Face Capsules - Open 60 Piece - New Packaging 2012
What the Brand Says: Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum deliver the right amount of hydration and ceramide benefits in an efficient way. What is a Ceramide? Ceramides comprise 50% of the essential lipids found in the skin and are essential in maintaining defense against sign of aging.
My Thoughts: I have been using the serum for the last couple of days. The capsules look small but just one is enough to cover my face, neck, chest and the top of my back. The serum feels silky and smooth and is easy to apply.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour CreamWhat the Brand Says: Elizabeth Arden’s legendary Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant was created by Ms Arden in 1930 and yet to be changed.
My Thoughts: My hands are always dry especially around my cuticles. I’ve been applying the eight hour cream, which seems more like an ointment, before I go to bed. It has a slightly medicinal smell that disappears shortly after you apply it but if it bothers you, stick your hand in some gloves while the cream goes to work.
What the Brand Says: Elizabeth Arden’s NEW Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss offers high-shine, increased moisture with Mango and Shea Butters with a light vanilla scent. Key ingredient, Maxi Lip, is clinically proven to increase lip volume by 40%!
My Thoughts: I was blessed big facial features. I did not always appreciate that and it took me a long time to appreciate my large lips. I spent my pre-teen years walking around with my lips tucked in. Now I see that women around the world have spent big bucks trying to get lips like mine! The Maxi Lip ingredient in the Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss might be just what you need.
