|Fran (left) and Gemma ring in the New Year in Thailand.|
Fran is perhaps most notably one of the co-founders (along with myself, Gemma and Katherine) of the Commonwealth Candy Club (because clearly that is what grown adults do while on vacation; form international candy clubs). However, she also holds one other claim to fame—she may be the only self-described "beauty product-obsessed backpacker" that I've ever met in my travels.
I mean, it seems almost oxymoronic. How can you backpack and be obsessed with beauty products?
The question has been plaguing me, so as I prepare for my very first long-distance cycling trip (!), in which I want to a) pack the bare minimum and b) look like less of a "mess" and more like a "hot mess," I decided that it was time to ask Fran for her best beauty backpacking tips.
