Travel Beauty Essentials: Kiehl’s Refreshing Mist

I’m heading off to Milan — like literally typing this in the airport — and my new favorite travel essential as of late is my Kiehl’s Refreshing Mist from their Travel-Tested Solutions line. Being on an airplane a lot can be rough on my skin. I feel like the Obama before and after 8 years of presidency photos during my international flights! To prevent this I’m always sure to drink tons water to re-hydrate during flights (ladies, while tempting, boozing on flights is particularly bad for us, air pressure etc.) In line with this, I’m also constantly on the look out for a great facial mist. Since discovering Kiehl’s Travel-Tested Solutions collection, this Refreshing Mist has been my go to. I love the fresh scent of the Lavender, Rosemary, and Geranium essential oils in this concoction. It not only is a quick wake-me-up with Tibetan Ginseng and Cactus Flower, but also detoxifies and purifies skin — so necessary on petri planes ;).

Video: Kissable Lips! (and other must-haves)

This is the last video of our travel make up series and it’s all about my favorite body part, the LIPS! While I love a bold lip, for my day-to-day, I usually prefer a stain, Simone Carter teaches me how to turn my favorite MAC lipstick, Pure Heroine into a stain. She also fills me in on the 3 must-haves for my day bag while I’m on vacation. Watch to find out what you need for the vacay perfect selfie! Also, as a side note guys, I’m on Periscope @Nneya. So get ready for so much TMI!!! Woo!

‘N’s Nomads: ELLE’s Beauty & Fitness Editor, Megan O’Neill

You know when a girl passes you on the street in Bushwick and you immediately think DOPE then do a major head turn? That’s Megan O’Neill; imagine the extent to which she blew my mind when I saw her in Amherst, Massachusetts. I couldn’t believe we had never met in New York. In a sea of popped collar polos and Patagonia fleeces, I had to know the girl in the leopard swing coat with perfectly undone hair. Recently made Beauty & Fitness editor at ELLE magazine and a veteran of Lucky, I can’t think of a better representative of the new wave of editors heralded by Eva Chen: Megan is incredibly stylish, funny and witty — oh, and an enviously tall stunner too! Her potty mouth humor got me through many an Amherst night and it’s always a pleasure bumping into her backstage during New York Fashion Week. Extremely articulate, Megan has a skill of painting pictures with her words that often has me trying products I never knew I needed and eagerly awaiting her next …
