You know this Latina is always on the go, speaking, meeting clients, attending events in different States. Hubby is my partner in those long drives with mi carro and the fact that he is driving, allows me to get ready and bella on the go!
I lost count of the times that I fixed my hair and put make up on while he was driving to have that fresh look and show my best Trendy Latina self!
Today, I will be sharing my best tips with you! Women on the go, who leave the house with no make up but need to arrive spotless, ready to play!
On The Go Make Up Tips
Tip 1: Have a good container
I don’t use my regular make up bag in the car, because I need easy access without seeing all my products spilled. So I chose an open container with high sides!
Tip 2: Don’t leave make up in the car
Do you know that weather changes affect the longevity and texture of your make up? Well, leaving make up in a hot day or in freezing weather will damage the products and affect the way they look and feel on your face. I once had a lipstick that melted in the car, messing up my car seat! You really don’t want that to happen to you! I carry my make up bag in and out or leave it in the car if we’re going to park in a parking garage, like we do in NYC!
Tip 3: Mirror
We often travel with our small car to NY or in car loaners from brands when it’s a longer trip. Our car doesn’t have lights in the mirror, making it hard for me to see the way my make up looks. So if I’m using that car, I bring a mirror that has lights in it, but the best option is when you have a car with built in lights.
Tip 4: Make up
I often use easy to apply products, basically gel and cream texture, which are easy to use and hard to spill. Powder, contouring and that cat eye, are out of question when the car is in movement and you’re trying to apply make up! Once I tried to work on a cat eye while going to NYC and a bump made a literal JOKER face out of me!!! Not funny when you’re heading to a fashion event!
Trust me, you don’t want to see a pic of me when these things happen! A true Latina Fashion Blogger nightmare!
Tip 5: Timing
I always check the timing and exits before we have to stop at the parking spot or garage, so I time myself to have the make up ready before we get there! For example – NYC, I start applying it on exit 12 of the turnpike, so by exit 16, which is our exit ( 30 minutes), I will be ready to go. Nothing worse than you need to leave the car in a parking garage but you still have to finish your make up!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my tips! After all the final product is all that matters and when we Latinas want to look our best, having a great system will help to avoid some of the mistakes previously mentioned!
After talking about all the driving and make up tips, I also want to share with you how important it is to maintain your car in top shape. Without our vehicles, I would not be able to attend events and meetings which are crucial to developing my blogging business!
Every time we get on the road, we put our lives in danger, if we don’t take care of that vehicle which is carrying us!
So now the…..
Most important Tip:
Hubby and I NEVER EVER MISS our oil change, maintenance visits, filter and tires are also checked out very often.
We love going to our local Walmart to the Auto Aisle and picking out the best oil to keep our vehicles running and performing the way they are supposed to! After all, my car should make my life easier!
The Oil I use:
Here are a few reasons why Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ Motor Oil is my go to Oil:
- Quaker State® is a great oil at a great price
- It’s #1 in Mexico and South America!
- Quaker State® gives you more durability! My absolute favorite!
The thousands of miles of stop-and-go traffic, trips, idling, and extreme temperatures changes are the true tests of toughness. These are exactly the tests that we put Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ Motor Oil through. Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ has proven it delivers twice the protection throughout its life.
Whether you travel often as I do or not, keeping your car in top shape, regardless of how old or expensive your vehicle is, should be your top priority!
Hope you’ve enjoyed my make up tips and would love to hear your tips as well!
