When you're traveling or on-the-go, you want as many makeup options--without the heavy lifting (there's just not enough room to carry-on a Dita von Teese load of beauty products during a flight.) Here are a few solutions to keep all of your beauty essentials organized and lightweight, on-the-go!
You probably don't need to bring that entire 10 oz body lotion for a 3 day trip, so invest in mini skincare storage for traveling. Purchase clear spray bottles, jars, and atomizers to hold sample amounts of your daily skincare and fragrance--you can even label your bottles for re-use if you travel often. Inexpensive clear containers can be purchased at your local drugstore and places like Target, The Container Store, and Wal-Mart, and you can find a small atomizer at Sephora for merely $10.
We're a big fan of pre-made palettes, but sometimes the packaging is too bulky for travel. Instead, invest in an empty magnetic palette that can hold your favorite eye shadow, blush, and powder products--you'll still have a ton of color options without carrying around the individual packaging for each product. The UNII Makeup Palette, an empty magnetic case, makes it easy to customize your perfect makeup kit.
We've said it before and we'll say it again. For beauty service on the go, choose multi-purpose and creamy--not sticky--formulas that can apply anywhere on the face. Your makeup will look more unified, and it's one less product to tote around. Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint serves double duty for your cheeks and lips: it imparts a creamy glow and sheerly stains for a brightened compexion in a pinch! Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector, a dual-ended portable concealer and highlighting pen, brightens undereye circles and illuminates your face without cluttering your makeup bag.
