With the holiday season in full swing, there’s no better time to narrow down your assortment of beauty products to organize your travel makeup essentials. Whether you adhere to TSA guidelines or just want to pack lightly, most of us won’t be traveling with our full makeup collection.
While planning the details of your trip and what clothes to wear is certainly an exciting task, changing your stash of beauty products can actually be quite stressful. The whole process makes you think about what you’ll need once you get to your destination, especially if you’re going somewhere without a pharmacy for last-minute beauty shopping. Either way, you’ll want at least a foundation product to even out skin tone and conceal imperfections, as well as multitasking pigments to bring warmth and subtle color to the face. And let’s not forget how you are going to store all your makeup to avoid spills or damage.
Here we’ve created the ultimate makeup packing guide for your summer vacation and beyond.
First, determine which travel makeup organizers are best for you. Maybe you already have the best toiletry bag that can hold both your skincare and your makeup, or maybe you prefer to store them separately. Away’s water-resistant case offers spacious compartments, see-through pockets and even a removable makeup brush organizer, perfect for storing in your carry-on. Alternatively, consider Longchamp’s zippered pouch, which is compact enough to slip into your purse or personal item for easy access.
From the Oscars red carpet to the Met Gala, experts talk about the importance of skin prep for glowing, beautiful skin with or without makeup. So, rely on skin-nourishing products and face primers to prep your base. We’ll choose Tatcha’s The Silk Canvas to weightlessly nourish, blend, protect and prep, or French beauties’ favorite Embryolisse cream to restore skin’s moisture and leave a satin finish.
Maybe you can apply all your makeup products with your fingers. Otherwise, don’t forget to take the beauty tools you rely on at home to perfect your look. For brushes, consider a dual-ended option that combines two different types of brushes into one, like this Hourglass option suitable for powder, bronzer, blush, and highlighter. On the other hand, classics like the Beautyblender sponge make mixing liquid, cream and powder products a dream.
Selecting your holiday complexion products is arguably the hardest part, with so many different types of foundations, concealers and powders to choose from – many of us need multiple shades to lighten the mood. below the eyes or combat hyperpigmentation. You can’t go wrong with Ilia’s Super Serum Skin Tint for lightweight, dewy coverage that even offers sun protection and nourishing ingredients (read: niacinamide, squalane, and hyaluronic acid). For concealer, Kosas’ creamy formula not only provides dewy medium coverage, but brightens, soothes, and plumps skin over time with a blend of caffeine, peptides, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid. Seriously, who can say no to clean, effective concealers and foundations?
Define the appearance
Even on vacation, it’s important to lock down your look appropriately. Charlotte Tilbury’s setting powder is great to have on hand for reducing shine and blurring skin where you need it, earning bonus points for mess-free application (vs. loose setting powder options). Then spray your face with Supergoop’s mist! which fixes and protects against UV rays and pollutants. In fact, a similar formula from the brand saved vogue Business writer Alexis Bennett’s makeup during Coachella.
Bring your favorite look to your peak with the best mascara and eyeliners, both of which work wonders for making your eyes pop and enhancing their shape. For smudge-free lengthening and lifting, opt for Merit’s Clean Mascara. To perfect your signature wing or add dimension to your look, Ilia’s waterproof liquid formula allows you to precisely engrave the liner however you see fit, thanks to a fine felt tip.
Makeup artists say the key to achieving minimalist makeup is adding an accent of color. One of the easiest ways to do this on the journey is to keep a tinted lip product on hand for a highlight moment. Kosas Lip Gloss provides a lip filler effect by visibly plumping the lips, especially when paired with a pencil that complements the lip color. Not a big lipgloss fan? Opt for Merit’s Satin Lipstick for sheer, buildable color for any occasion.
We quickly became big fanatics of blush, from viral TikTok picks to the best cream formulas. Either way, blendable blushes and versatile color pigments let you customize your glow and place colors where you want them. Versatility is the key to any type of vacation. Pat Merit’s creamy tint onto eyes, lips and cheeks for a skin-like color wash. Do you prefer a liquid formula? Dew Blush based on eau de Saie creates a natural shade after just one dot of its doe foot applicator, mixed with any of the previously mentioned makeup tools.
Eyebrows say a lot about a person, so consider perfecting yours when packing for travel. Draw realistic brows in sparse areas with makeup pro Dani Kimiko Vincent’s ultra-fine pencil, or comb hairs into place with brow gel like Ilia’s to add volume and thickness with flexible hold .
Maybe your trips are for a wedding or gala that requires total glamour, or maybe you’re not sure what your itinerary entails. Still, a few camera-ready glam longwear-specific products are essential. Consider false eyelashes to amp up the drama; With this Velor Lashes Kit, you have everything you need to apply natural-looking lashes anywhere, without trimming or measuring.
