Traveling Beauty

By Natasha Chalenko

Necessity is the mother of invention. I learned this right away when I started my travels in the modeling and fashion industry years ago. Packing for last-minute trips — sometimes for multiple climate zones, and preferably all in one suitcase — taught me to develop an effective approach for choosing full-sized beauty products that offer maximum benefits while taking minimum space. My “Travel Beauty Superheroes” system consists of three main groups — Formulators, Constructors and Alternatives — and each boasts its own special superpower. Let’s explore this summer’s best.
