Last week, I was lucky enough to fly to Scotland and spend seven days exploring Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Luss (a small village on the shores of Loch Lomond). The weather was just what you’d expect it to be. Five out of the seven days were dark and gloomy with pelting rain and blowing wind. While I normally wouldn’t mind that weather—in fact, I’d embrace it—I knew I’d be spending a lot of time outside, and I wanted to look somewhat put-together.
Luckily, I checked the weather before leaving, so I was prepared. Before boarding my first flight, I assembled what I consider to be a pretty epic beauty edit. I packed a skin-soothing face mask to prevent travel-induced dryness and irritation. I packed a humidity-resistant styling product to keep my hair smooth and shiny despite the rain. I even packed a lip-plumping-and-conditioning duo, because I knew I wouldn’t be wearing a lot of makeup, and I at least wanted my lips to look full and hydrated. Basically, I gathered the finest fall beauty products and put them to the test, hoping they’d hold up to rain, wind, and sweat. And guess what? They did.
