I’m so excited to be partnering with my friends at Coca-Cola again this year for another amazing ESSENCE®! You guys are aware that ESSENCE Festival 2015® is quickly approaching. I had a chance to reminiscence about the time I spent in New Orleans, sampling amazing food, spending time with blogger friends and cooling down from the extreme heat by drinking an ice cold Coca-Cola.
I want to share with you a “Throwback Look” moment – when traveling to different cities it’s sometimes difficult to have a glam team on stand-by, but I just so happened to meet up with a few blogger buddies who were also in attendance, and one of them happened to be a beauty blogger! My friend and makeup artist Nicole hooked me up daily with the latest beauty looks and she kept me pretty glammed up! With all the heat, walking, dining, going to events, concerts, and let’s not forget shopping, all of this can take a toll on your look by the end of the day! Not everyone will have a makeup artist on stand-by, but I have some great beauty tips for you when you are traveling to ESSENCE®.
-Prepare ahead of time and pack accordingly.
-Pack baby wipes and moisturizer.
-Drink plenty of water.
-Pack makeup that complements and goes with your wardrobe.
-Try to use clear makeup bags, so that you can find what you are looking for in a snap.
-Blotting strips will work in the heat to keep the shine down.
-When all else fails, keep it simple with just eyeliner, a neutral eye shadow and lip color.
-Don’t forget to drink an ice cold Coca-Cola!
If you can’t make it to ESSENCE® this year, these tips apply to any of your summer destinations!
