Up, Up and Away: Travel Makeup Essentials

Up, Up and Away: Travel Makeup Essentials

Be it the holiday of the season, or a self-imposed holiday—because sometimes you just need a break—the choice of what travel makeup essentials to include in your carry-on never gets easier. You’re not alone. Sometimes it can be tough choosing between glamour and practicality, but who said you can’t have both?

    Sircuit Skin Molecular Mist+ Hydrating Moisture Care

    With all that running and waiting around you’ll be doing in the airport terminal—not to mention sitting in a pressurized cabin for a few hours—your skin is going to get a little parched.

    The texture of your face may begin to look as exhausted as traveling tends to make you feel. In the event you don’t have a few minutes to wash up in the public restroom—and if we’re being completely honest, would you really want to?—stash this nifty little friend in your carry-on for a quick and easy refresher.

    With age-defying natural ingredients, this lightweight formula tackles free radicals and helps the skin’s natural protective barrier to improve moisture retention. This little guy can be used in place of a daily moisturizer as well as double as a makeup setting spray.

    The brows are the picture frame for your facial canvas. When you’re spending an eternity in security lines and running a marathon to make the final boarding call for your flight, you probably aren’t going to be giving too much thought to those strips of hair sitting atop your eyes.

    Why should you? When the hours of traveling get to you, it’s a comfort to know that those babies are buckled and set in place. Make sure their shape will hold by using a clear or colored brow gel.

    Set your brows in an instant with this best-selling, long-wearing formula by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

    Caudalie French Tinted Lip Balm - Seduction

    When it comes to thirsty skin, your lips are probably one of the first places you’ll feel the dryness taking its toll. Especially if you’ve got a habit of licking your lips—that really only does more harm. Tossing a lip balm into your bag gives you a glamorous option to keep your pout nice and hydrated!

    Lipsticks can be messy, especially when pit stops are few and far apart. Keep that tease of color while at the same time nourishing your lips with ingredients like beeswax, aloe vera, and sunflower oil. If a bubble-gum pink isn’t your preferred hue of choice, take a look at Innocence for a frosty pink, or Addiction for a raspberry red.

    Let this product double up its benefits for you and use it as a blush for an easy pop of color to the cheeks!

Lastly, just skip the mascara. Nothing is going to be more uncomfortable—or less glamorous—than black lashes that wear and flake off under the eyes. The key to travel glamour is comfort.

I'm a beauty fanatic living in Utah. My favorite beauty product is NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. LOVE me a deep red lip. You will almost never see me without one. It's basically my trademark. I'm a living, breathing clone of Scarlett Johannsen. So if you ask me if anyone's ever told me that, you will be the two million and oneth person to tell me that, but I love the compliment! I love anything and everything to do with beauty and skincare. A clean, radiant face is the key to any flawless face!
