Beauty Rewind: Road Trip & The Rimmel 10 Challenge

My in-laws are in town this weekend, so I’ve dug up some old (but still good) reading material for you from last summer! I hope you enjoy it. Are you going anywhere fun this summer on a roadtrip?

This is about the time of year where I am wishing I had a beautiful red convertible to drive with the top down and the music turned up, driving to who knows where, but probably a beach.  The wind is blowing and despite the fact that my hair’s pulled back, it keeps flying into my lipgloss.  It’s a beautiful sunny day and there’s not a cloud in the sky.  I have a full tank of gas, a full bank account, a full set of abs to rock my bikini…. ok I’m dreaming…

In reality, I have a red Ford Focus with a sun roof, a quarter tank of gas, and we won’t discuss the current state of my abdominal muscles.  BUT, I’m still ready for a road trip and I have a lot of goodies I want to pack with me:

My travel companion, Ruckus

Yes, you’re seeing this right, that’s a life jacket!

My rockin’ neon aviators

My summer snack of choice

What’s on my Nook:

“White Girl Problems” by Babe Walker.  (If you haven’t read it, you must.  It is pee-your-pants-funny and the perfect summer read!)

Everything I need besides my pup will fit in my awesome floral beach bag.  My trick to not needing to pack much?  
Here are my 3 favorite summer beauty tips!
1.  Use multi functional products.  I like to use Match Perfection blush swirled together on my cheeks,  and use the highlighting shade on my cupid’s bow, on my brow bone, and anywhere else that needs a little highlighting.
2.  Start with a primer to get your makeup to stick, and you won’t need touch ups.  Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer makes my makeup budge proof.

3.  Sunglasses are my top summer accessory.  Got messy hair?  Wear them as a headband and your bedhead won’t be as evident.  That mascara’s not waterproof after all?  Put your shades on and nobody will notice.  OR use your sunglasses as a mirror to fix your eye makeup. 

In honor of beauty, and summer road trips, 5 winners will win the prizes mentioned below! Good luck and happy road tripping!

    Great tips – especially the fixing your makeup in the sunglasses one! I am going to have to remember that when I need to do a quick check! 🙂
