My Haute Summer Travel Beauty Tips!

When traveling for business or pleasure a Haute Travels girl knows looking good with minimal effort for maximum appeal is part of our travel package. When preparing for a trip, some things are just as important as my ticket, passport and carryon bag—my haute look.

Here are eight tips that will keep you looking haute.

-I love a great rosewater spritz to keep my skin hydrated while traveling by plane.

-Haute hair is a must-have so I keep my brown tresses hydrated with frequent steam therapy sessions to keep my strands from drying and breaking.

-When tanning in Miami, Las Vegas, the Caribbean or any where that’s warm and sunny, I always follow up with an after sun moisturizer and self-tanner to seal in my glow. My favorite is by Clarins.

-I can’t leave home without perfectly manicured toes… although when staying at some resorts with great spas I make it a point to hit them first for a fresh pedicure.

-A great lip gloss keeps my kissers fresh and moist while adding color even when I go nude my lips stay haute.

-A great bronzing powder makes my face pop with a fresh flawless look.

-Great brows are important in adding instant glam.

-No matter where I go during the summer, I travel with Skin So Soft by Avon to keep the bugs away.

Staying haute is what it's all about... but most importantly be sure to use products with an spf and use sunscreen to keep the rays at bay.

The Beauty of Business in Las Vegas

When it’s time to get away for a beauty event in Las Vegas… there’s just one thing to do—make it happen. CosmoProf is one of the largest international beauty shows in the world. There is so much to see and sample in the world of makeup, nails, and hair. It really is a girly girl’s paradise. Every new trend, product and tool is right here for beauty industry-insiders to sample.

When my days at CosmoProf North America wrapped over at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center it was on to The Trump Hotel for poolside relaxation and networking. That’s right… the beauty of business never stops! But it doesn’t have to because the opportunity to expand networks and net worth is always a top priority.

While in Vegas, I didn’t get to hit the party scene like I did a few months ago because this trip was all about research and development for a Haute Travels project that I haven’t made public yet, but stay tuned. However, I did make time for dinner over at Caesars Palace with brand strategists from Zone Management, Lila Brown of Ella Bee PR and natural hair guru Robin Groover. But, as you can imagine, when a group of smart people get together they talk about what else… the evolution of rap music! And the guy with all of the insight was a white guy from Boston! It was the most fun that I’ve had in a while. I love multicultural connections.


If you’re a girl who loves beauty products and cutting-edge technology that’s revolutionizing the beauty industry—you must attend CosmoProf. Another show will soon head to one of my favorite haute European destinations—Italy in 2012!

What's your favorite Beauty show?
