While I love seeing how new brands interpret "casual cool", I can't help but always return to some of the classics like Isabel Marant, the eponymous label renown for its refined embodiment of the term, and Rag & Bone, the New York brand also esteemed for epitomizing the laid-back blasé. These two, paired with my favorite oversized square sunglasses and some hoop earrings, make dazed morning runs for caffeine seem less cumbersome and a bit more au courant.

No matter the time of the year, climate or destination, I have a handful of products and accessories I always bring with me on trips. Because I’d rather focus on discovering less-explored paths and the little moments that really define travel, I bring the skincare and makeup that work and actually last so that I don't have to worry about it after application. When traveling, my main beauty concerns are to merely de-puff and look awake, aka minimize the jet-lagged appearance and I swear, the Glossier super bounce serum (this doubles as a good primer) + Tarte creaseless concealer (not pictured, but I’ve used this for so many years, it’s never failed me and actually is creaseless all day long) + NARS liquid blush in “Torrid” (seriously the best color that gives you a natural looking flush and brightens and ‘wakes’ your face up) + Chanel lipstick (highly moisturizing and amazing color, of course) combo has really never steered me wrong during any of my trips.

As for accessories, I like to mix it up with silver and gold so that I’m not limited to the kinds of clothing I can bring. Anything that is flashy in nature, but simple enough, is the kind of fuss-free jewelry I can always do. For dressier occasions, like fun dinners or brunch events, I like to wear these gold and silver hoop earrings and add on a couple rings and necklaces to my usual suspects: a two-toned double hoop earring sitting on the inner corners of my ears, next to my all-time favorite, these J. Hannah form I silver hoop earrings, and a layering of opal chokers with a pearl necklace I almost always drape over my neck.

Does anyone else stay faithful to only a handful of products everywhere they go? I’d love to learn about the tried-and-true travel favorites of others x

Aglow

Neon Blush, Jenny Ong, Charlotte Tilbury, Nordstrom makeup, Nordstrom beauty and skincare, Los Angeles, makeup tips, Hollywood glow collectionCharlotte Tilbury lipstick, J.Hannah earrings

With nowhere to go, but all the reasons to glam up: Charlotte Tilbury's Ultimate Hollywood collection is a set of stellar products that makes you want to indulge in that Hollywood look, no matter your plans. I used her contour wand to bring out the cheek bones and shade in the four outer arches framing my face, and layered the liquid lipstick in "Charlotte Darling" and lipstick in "Hepburn Honey". Finished off the look with a tinge of blush from NARS (here, wearing "Luster"), and a bit of purple shimmer using the Marc Jacobs eyeshadow palette in "Frivoluxe" (one of my tried and true favorites).

Fall fix

9/27/17

For the girl who loves 'em all: there's no discriminating between the cap- and the pointy-toed, the bold and the meek, or the sleek and shiny and the plush and velvety here. These have been my main footwear saviors as we edge into the new season- I'm loving the reentrance of velvet, patented gloss, and clunky sneakers and boots altogether.
