Postcard Series: Rachel Adler cannot go a day without...

Beauty Writer and Founder of Makeup Warriors 


Travel- hate it, love it? Absolutely love it. I'm currently on a mission to go to a new destination at least once a month. This month, I went to Curacao, and I highly recommend.

It’s not a vacation unless...I'm unplugged from work and exploring a new destination

Planes, trains or automobiles? Planes all the way – even better if said plane has WiFi (I can unplug when I get to my destination...)

Checked bags or carry on? Carry on, always. I once lost luggage when I checked bags and will never make the mistake again.

Travel beauty- bare or elaborate? Bare – my travel beauty is my "break" from my beauty routine as well. I air-dry my curls (sometimes sans product and just with extra conditioner) and just go with minimal concealer, some mascara and gloss (if that).

In general my beauty routine is…Pretty standard and quick. I have it down to a science – I use a shadow crayon on my lids, a couple coats of mascara, and then a keep a good lipstick in my bag (like Wander Beauty's Dual Lipsticks) in case I pop into any meetings or events throughout the day.

I must pack __________ when traveling? SPF!! Can't go a day without it out.

Best travel tip? Always pack light layers because no one can ever predict the weather and everyone hates to be uncomfortable.

Upon arrival at my destination...I head to the pool, beach or out the door to sight-see!

Favorite travel spot? Currently, Iceland. If you ask me a month it might be somewhere else – my next destination is Croatia :)

What are your 3 must see/do things in this city? Hike a glacier, go see the Skogafoss falls, and try to see the Northern Lights (if you're lucky). For a bonus, also try the fermented shark (a delicacy there, but warning, it tastes terrible)!
