When you’re traveling, whether it be a week-long getaway or a weekend excursion, we always recommend keeping your suitcase as no-nonsense as possible, and that includes your beauty bag. If you’re spending time on an airplane or long hours in a car, you want your beauty routine to be easier than getting through baggage claim or reading a map. Here are 5 beauty essentials for your travel makeup bag that will keep you fresh and beautiful, so that you can enjoy your trip without being weighed down.
1.) Waterproof Mascara
This staple will withstand the elements as you head from place to place, and leave your lashes looking luscious no matter the weather. Buxom Waterproof Mascara is one of our personal faves and has stood the test of time in our travel beauty bag. Apply one coat for long sleek lashes, or apply as needed for more dramatic looking eyes.
2.) Lightweight Liquid Concealer
For your under eyes and blemishes, a lightweight liquid concealer will do the trick quickly and without a fuss. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer will cover up any imperfection fast, so you can be your best self no matter where you are in your travels. Use your ring finger to warm the product up and make the concealer blend naturally into your skin, for all day (and all night) coverage.
3.) Pressed Facial Powder
Your concealer will slip and slide allover your face without anything to keep it set, not a good look for your Instagram pics. To keep that from happening, use a matte pressed powder to protect the concealer and control the oil that your face creates on long travel days. LORAC’s Translucent Pressed Powder comes with a mirror and applicator pad, so this trio will provide more than just flawless skin.
4.) Moisturizing Lip Product
To keep your lips luscious and hydrated in the days you’ll spend away, you must get your hands on the much loved Sugar Lip Tinted Lip Treatment. This product will moisturize your lips in a variety of gorgeous tints, and will make you look put-together and polished while you explore your destination. A lipstick and a chapstick in 1, this product is a great investment for your beauty bag.
5.) Vitamin Infused Makeup Wipes
After a long day of travel, your skin will need a break, so remove the day’s makeup with Truth On The Glow Cleansing Cloths, infused with Vitamin C and jojoba oil. These wipes will replenish your skin from the strain of your day and keep you feeling fresh. Vitamin C will replenish your face with nutrients that were stripped away from contact with the air and sun, and jojoba oil will make the skin smooth and soft.
