Beauty Travel Tips from Hyatt Place

How can you look your best while on the road? From the initial packing and planning stages to the moment you arrive at your hotel room, here are beauty travel tips from lifestyle vlogger, Jessica Harlow, of the Hyatt Place's new Seamless Travel Series.

  1. Be realistic. Only bring what you're actually planning on using.

  2. Separate your products into makeup categories, with individual plastic bags.

  3. Stay powder shatter-proof. If you're planning on checking your makeup inside your luggage, use cotton balls for a little added cushioning.

  4. Invest in a travel bag to store toiletries.

  5. Look your best, feel your best. Make sure to visit your hotel gym and boost your endorphins.

  6. Make this list and check it twice!
