Oops, I Forgot My…

Many of you may have just returned from your winter vacation or maybe you are on your way to relax before 2010 gets under way. No matter how diligently you pack your beauty basics for a trip, you may find you have forgotten something and can’t easily pick one up at your vacation destination.

A few forgotten products can be easily remedied in a pinch, so you will look your best by using what you did bring. If your body seems to be getting tanner even though you are applying your sunscreen every day and your foundation is starting to look too light just use bronzer to even the skin out. After applying your foundation and powder dust on your bronzer all over your face and a little down the neck to create a uniform tan.

If your cream blush didn’t make it into your bag, use your lipstick on the apples of your cheeks for a quick flush of color. If your lipstick did not make it in but your blush didm you can reverse the order and pink up your pout with a little cream blush. If you packed powder blush, you can use it on your lips and add a lip balm over top for moisture.

If eyeliner was left behind mascara can be used to define the lash line. Use an angle brush, Q-Tip or even a toothpick (dull the tip first) to pick up a little color from the mascara wand and then trace it along the upper lash line for a slight smudge.

If you forgot your highlighter use a lip balm under the brow, on the inner corners of the eyes and on top of the cheekbones to illuminate the skin with a clear glow.

If you did not bring your concealer try using a Q-Tip dipped in the cap or the nozzle of the foundation bottle to pick up the slightly thicker left-overs. Then lay this over a spot to get rid of any redness or blemish you may have.

See so if you get creative you will look beautiful on your get-away and not have to worry about what was left behind.
