The new normal is to travel as much as possible and see what the world has to offer. Trying to pack as light as possible is a growing challenge for any young traveler, not to mention the annoying liquid rule we face every time we reach an airport. Lowering your liquid amount will make things much easier when traveling, especially regarding hand luggage. After years of soaring the skies, we have built the perfect list of essential beauty products you need for traveling, whether you’re backpacking for months or just going for a city weekend break. Here are our favorite ten.
Mini Eyeshadow Palette
For nights out on the town or every day, a mini eyeshadow palette is a great choice for any traveler. Makeup for face lips, and cheeks work wonders on their own, but are never complete without a touch of color on the eyes. The miniature size makes it much easier to bring with you than a full palette.
Solid shampoo has risen in popularity among travelers and nomads, and it is a great way to save space. Although you may have questions regarding solid shampoos, they are developing in variety. One of the best things is that solid shampoo is made by a lot of ethical companies, which is just another reason to buy it.
This is perfect for a quick skin refresher whenever you don’t have time or space to complete a whole skincare routine. Whether for a quick wake-up call for your skin or overnight treatment, it’s so easy, you only need to bring this one skincare product!
For any consistent blemishes or spots that seemingly won’t ever leave your face, a small concealer can work wonders. Having a small bottle handy is always great for skin emergencies. Keeping foundation with you all the time is not always practical, so a mini bottle of concealer is a great alternative.
When the day comes to an end, you need to take the makeup off of your face. Rather than bringing a big bottle of makeup remover and all the cotton pads needed alongside it, why not try a makeup eraser? A makeup remover isn’t needed with these fantastic cloths. They work really well and only require water to remove anything from your face; as with other items on our list, the less liquid, the better when it comes to traveling.
Sea Salt Spray
If you want the sunkissed beach look straight from the hotel, sea salt spray is the perfect choice without too much fuss. When traveling, you don’t want to be trying to fix your hair every day, and straighteners or curlers take up a lot of room in the limited space in your bag. Get the surfer look and use sea salt spray.
There is no trip that I will ever take without tinted moisturizer. In addition to saving some space while traveling, this product is a perfect 3-in-1 product. As well as moisturizing your skin, it also evens out your skin tone while not clogging your pores over time. In addition to SPF protection, it also contains sunscreen to avoid long-term damage from the sun!
Waterproof Eyeliner & Mascara
Wearing waterproof eyeliner and mascara is essential when traveling with makeup. The weather may turn bad, or heaven forbid, you may get caught in the rain. Waterproof makeup is the way to go whenever you don’t have time to fix your makeup constantly.
Another substitute for liquid in your bag, toothpaste tabs are nothing short of amazing. Place one into your mouth, and you’re good to go. Within the backpacker community, these toothpaste tabs are snowballing in popularity. Toothpaste tabs remove the need for a big tube of toothpaste, taking up valuable space in your bag, and you can pop one in throughout the day if you find your mouth needs a little refresh.
To carry all your makeup essentials, you need the perfect bag to hold all your travel-sized goods. Waterproof bags are great; you can store them close to the shower and have them handy when you need them; if your bag features a handle, that is another benefit.
