The Dish with DDR: New Beauty Must Haves for Resort Season!

Resort season is approaching! Maybe you are spending the holidays out of town this year, planning a hot get-a-way for NYE or a winter trip after all the hustle and bustle subsides. Whatever it is, don’t leave home without these beauty MUST-haves!


Milk Makeup Micellar Water Makeup Remover Wipes, $14

Remove makeup and other impurities quickly with these paraben-free, eco-friendly wipes. These lovely portable wipes come in a pack of 20 and are filled with nourishing ingredients like chamomile, green tea, coconut and papaya to gently swipe away pore clogging debris. Excellent to slip in your carry on or your makeup bag! I love that they come individually wrapped for long lasting freshness.


Tata Harper Clarifying Moisturizer, $105

Never leave home (or go to bed) without moisturizing! This is a new fave of mine that works on most skin types. This farm to bottle (literally made on Tata’s farm in Vermont) is infused with organic herbs like calendula to give it a fresh, clean scent and also the best nutrients for your delicate skin. It is a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer that soothes any redness and leaves skin with a matte finish. The best part is you only need a little dime size amount of this luxurious product to work it’s magic. It is worth the hefty price.


Master Palette by Mario, $45

Mario Dedivanovic, aka Kim K’s makeup artist, has collaborated with Anastasia Beverly Hills to bring you this gorgeous, highly pigmented palette of eye shadows to create the perfect day to night looks. The convenient on-the-go palette provides you with a double ended shadow brush and a mirror. You can use the 12 color palette on your eyes and the light shimmery ones as highlighters for all the high points of your face. The shadows come in a variety of textures from satin to matte to shimmery. They glide on so smooth and buttery too! Perfect for vacay or any day!


Wander Beauty New York Minute Makeup Kit, $39

Wander Beauty’s travel friendly makeup kit is a great value for three multi-tasking makeup essentials. The kit comes with a cream shadow that can be used as a base or liner; a black eyeliner; a voluminous and curling mascara; and a lip and cheek gel in the perfect rosy nude. This easy and effortless makeup kit is perfect for on the go (and comes in the cutest little bag).


I’ve tried and tested all of these products and they have my kiss of approval. I chose them because I truly love how they perform and to me these are the essentials for a quick getaway. All products created without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

If you have any favorite products that you love to travel with, I’d love to hear about them! Let me know in the comments.


Happy Holidays!
