Now that the long weekend is over and I have recovered from my American Idol withdrawals, I’m looking forward to summer Fridays (one of the few things I love about east coast life. That and being a short plane ride away from my nephew) and summer trips! I’m a total beauty nerd cause when it comes to packing for any trip—no matter how short (or long!)—I am all about the hunt for the perfect travel sized essentials. I’m talking beyond the basic mini deodorant and toothpaste. Luckily a lot of beauty products are compact and travel friendly, but I found some multitasking essentials (my latest obsession is micellar waters and YSL's blush/lip stain) that I just have to have in new blue ombré carryon all summer long.
