Tropical, Beachside Vacation: Costa Rica, Turks & Caicos, Miami
Favorite beach getaway: Mallorca, Spain right next to Barcelona! It’s the hidden gem of the Mediterranean. It has the clearest water I’ve ever seen, and it’s beyond beautiful.
Never leave home without packing: Sunscreen! I suggest taking two SPF levels – 20 and 50 – for a natural face contour. L’Oréal Paris has the new Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil SPF 30, which is a great option.
Beauty products needed for a humid, tropical locale: SPF (of course), rose oil because it helps in repairing sun damage and Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner for a fun pop of color that lasts all day.
Magazine to read on the plane: The 2016 ELLE Global issue for sure (Beyoncé is on the cover).
Top songs on your vacation playlist: “Come Inside” by Blue Six and “Bam Bam” by Sister Nancy are two of the best beach songs.
Indulgence item you’d bring home as a souvenir: Some sort or sarong or wrap for my mom and sister.
Forest, Mountaintop Vacation: Aspen, Big Sur, Vancouver
Favorite mountain retreat: Vancouver – I have a lot of friends there!
Never leave home without packing: Hiking boots or rugged footwear, because you will be hiking and walking a lot!
Beauty products needed for a high-altitude, forested locale: Definitely super-hydrating and emollient skin care. I like the Revitalift Volume Filler collection because it incorporates hyaluronic acid to help keep skin hydrated.
Book to read on the plane: “The Art of Seduction” by Robert Greene.
Top song on your vacation playlist: “Smooth Operator” by Sade.
Indulgence item you’d bring home as a souvenir: A cool foodie item like smoked jerky.
Urban, City Vacation: New York, Paris, London, Seoul
Favorite urban hub: This is a tough choice … it would have to be between Barcelona and Paris.
Never leave home without packing: A portable phone charger.
Beauty products needed for a heavily trafficked, urban locale: A product with anti-pollution benefits. Clarisonic Smart Profile Sonic Body and Cleansing Brush. You should also pack a good eye cream like Revitalift Volume Filler Eye Treatment.
Book to read on the plane: The Zagat restaurant guide for some good eats!
Top song on your vacation playlist: “Give Me One More Chance” by Notorious B.I.G.
Indulgence item you’d bring home as a souvenir: Definitely clothes – I am a fashion junkie, and Barcelona and Paris always have the coolest clothing.
Arid, Desert Vacation: Sedona, Morocco, DubaiFavorite desert oasis: Dubai, hands down.
Never leave home without packing: Sunglasses … I personally love big aviators.
Beauty products needed for a dry, hot desert locale: An emollient and/or nourishing moisturizer to combat the dry weather. Something like the Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Golden Balm Face, Neck & Chest. Also, a cool black kohl or kajal liner would be perfect.
Book to read on the plane: “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho.
Top song on your vacation playlist: “Light My Fire” by Shirley Bassey.
Indulgence item you’d bring home as a souvenir: Some interesting, locale-specific clothing. Desert locations are often synonymous with loose, lightweight clothing options that are fun to mix into your modern, everyday wardrobe.
