The Makeup Necessities When Traveling Lightly

Planning for a getaway and don’t want to pack a whole makeup store just to look and feel your best? Join the club!

Are you someone who either over packs or completely under packs? I am. I swear, I either have WAY too many options and only wear the same two things OR I have literally not one full outfit.

But when it comes to my makeup packing game, I’m on point. I hate traveling with more makeup and toiletries than I actually need.

Whether you’re on the go or have big plans for the weekend — yet want to travel lightly, here are a few items you’ll probably want to consider bringing with.

PRO TIP: Don’t be afraid to use items for more than what they are advertised to be/do!

Makeup Packing List:

  1. Foundation.  Obviously we all want even, flawless skin.  Kill two birds with one stone and pick up a foundation or tinted moisturizer that has SPF in it! Shop my personal favorite CC cream (a bit more coverage) by iT CosmeticsOR if you like something a little more sheer but still with SPF, I love the ILIA Super Serum
  2. Bronzer.  You can use this for a sun-kissed glow and double it up as an eye shadow. My personal favorite is Jane Iredale Quad Bronzer in Sun Beam OR if you prefer something a bit more matte of a look, I love this matte bronzer by Too Faced
  3. Cheek/Lip Stain.  Either/Or.  Like I said, don’t feel like you can only use products on one area of the face.  Choose your favorite stain product and apply it to both the cheeks and lips for a pop of color. There are a lot of great ones out there like MILK Cosmetics Lip + Cheekbest blush for traveling lightly
  4. Mascara.  Let’s not state the obvious here. Mascara is life. Unless of course you have eyelash extensions. I am really LOVING the Thrive Causemetics mascara…but for waterproof, my all time favorite is L’Oreal Voluminous!
  5. Eye shadow. All you need is ONE. You already have your bronzer, so why not go for a matte darker shade — maybe one that can double as both an eyeliner and a brow filler depending on your tones?
  6. Zoya Hot Lips.  Moisturizing lip gloss that keeps the lips hydrated without them being sticky, adds a beautiful shine, and as a plus, is paraben-free.

Pro tip: if there’s’ room, pack your lash curler! 🙂 Curling your lashes makes a HUGE difference.
