It is such a hassle when you are ready to leave on a vacation and you need a suitcase just to pack your makeup. Organizing and choosing the makeup products that can help make your travel plans more seamless can be a hard task. Here are some of the best products to carry in your luggage when you are traveling to ensure you have all the products you need at hand, while not bulking up your luggage limit.

A moisturising lip balm

Flights can be rough on your skin. With the pressure difference in the flight, they can be extremely drying and can dry your skin out pretty badly. A good moisturizing lip balm will be your best friend while you are traveling. For a pop of color on your face, you can also choose a tinted lip balm.

Travel Makeup Packing Tips

A magnetic palette full of your favourite products

While most people prefer to travel with a giant beauty book; the truth is, these often are quite inconsistent in their pigmentation. While some products are decent, others lack any pigment at all. They can also break pretty easily due to flimsy constructions and the powders can mess with the glosses and lipsticks. Instead, look for magnetic palettes and build them up with your favorite eye shadows, concealer, contour, highlight, bronzer and blush pans to have some of the products you rely on at hand at all times. Don’t forget this while makeup packing for a trip.

A long lasting brow kit

One of the very essentials of having a good day is to have a good brow day and one of the pre-requisites of any makeup look is a good brow and for that you need a good brow kit, don’t forget one while makeup packing. Pick something that is natural enough to work for the days when you want heavy makeup, or even days when you don’t want to wear any makeup; something natural that can be built up for more drama. Ensure that the product is long-wearing to ensure that you still have brows on even after a long flight and something that is waterproof to tackle any sweat or other unprecedented weather situations. A brow gel can be a mess-free option.

Tips For Travel

Cleansing wipes

This is going to be your best friend when it comes to products that you can’t miss while makeup packing. When you are traveling to any place, if you are going to be outside in the sun and dust, your face is going to accumulate all that dirt and grime which can lead to horrible breakouts and clogged pores. A cleansing wipe can help you freshen up at any time and help your face to look fresh and rejuvenated throughout the day. This will also come in handy if you need to take your makeup off after the day and can be a great dual-use product.

Makeup packing


One of the biggest problems that you can face while traveling is often the very thing you can’t do without. Foundation can be such a messy product to travel with. Traditional foundation bottles tend to spill and crack when you are traveling with them and can be quite heavy when used, especially combined with the change in diet and weather as well as traveling in an airplane can take a toll on your skin. A cushion foundation can be absolutely perfect and can enable you to look evened out without losing hydration from the skin and it looking too caked on. Spill-proof in nature, these are your best friends while traveling.

Your favourite lipstick

If you don’t really have the time to get ready and have to get going the first thing after waking up, pop on your favorite lipstick to skip the entire getting ready process and still look presentable.
